Great comments regarding the talents. Hope Blizzard's class design team sees this quickly!
What is PvP state of balance druids? Not a single word :/
I've been maining balance druid since late MoP. This spec always felt powerful.I got the feeling that our artifact made it even more OP.On beta, with the artifact's gone and all the nerfs, balance feels simply...weak, squishy, irrelevant.Eh guess I'll have to switch to feral *meow*
Why do high mountain Tauren balance druids have normal cow horns instead of the awesome antlers that blizz made for them?
Boomkins suck on Beta, never in the history of WoW have you ever heard of Boomkins being OP.Mages, Hunters, Locks, DH, DK and Warriors are always OP.Face it Blizzard can care less about this class. It’s going to be funny watching Boomkins go one on one with othe classes and specs.
The Highmountain Tauren should be eagle-themed such as white, feathery head, autumn brown fur, wise eyes, rustic yet regal antlers - perhaps carved with moon symbols - and from their sturdy antlers could hang meaningful ornaments, moon runes, or starry beads and feathers.Lookin' forward to new forms! Some ideas for blizzard artists to have fun creating for us:A snowy, white owlkin, with a thick and cuddly suit of frosty fur, chanting, dancing and flapping beneath the auroras of the northern or southern poles. Some with soft, branch-like antlers sheathed in glistening velvet, and some sporting sturdy curled horns with runed carvings glowing with astral light. A wintry wielder of wild starlight and twinkling heavenly worlds.or..A warm and cozy owlbear - protector of the woodland realms and Azeroth's flora, fauna and forest folk. Draped in deep Autumn reds, tawny browns and gentle golden feathers during Autumn's crisp days and starry nights. Stout, wild mushrooms sprouting in our footsteps. Crowning the woodland wanderer's head sits an impressive tangle of massive moss-blanketed antlers, gnarled and notched, from which dangles a silvery web of glowing stone and wooden runes. Warmer seasons greet the great and grizzly owlbear with blossom-topped prongs and a mantle that changes from peaceful Spring pastels to sun-strengthened feathers, bright and dreamy glows during Summer.or..A dark-furred moonbeast, watcher of the night sky. These hefty, horned guardians feel a deep connection with the night, their power awesomely enhanced further beneath the unmasked moon. These lunar lords, with their dusky feathers and eyes that glow silver like small twin stars, emerge from the shadowy thickets and groves to defend Azeroth while we dream. Manipulating moonlight and slingin' stars. or..A vibrantly colored sunkin with wild, striped and spotted feathers, a tusked, warpainted beak, and long, bone-adorned ears. They decorate their exotic bird form with relics of solar and lunar energies, tribal beads and skull necklaces. These frightening but spirited Druids call the warm jungles of Azeroth their home, and protect anywhere and anyone threatened, with punishing primal magics from our ancient sun and moons.Thanks for reading and have great day!

These are my views about balance in BFAs mythic plus dungeons. As an druid i hate that bring class not a player, if you compare it for another ranged and what they got, mages int buff + spellsteal(yea this isnt new BUT) is way more useful in BFA than it were in legion, so many dungeons has insane dmg / haste etc buffs they can steal. Warlocks HS dosnt share cooldown with potions and baseline AoE stun. my friends and me played with these classes so i dont wanna bring another rangeds in this scenario because i dont know how they are doing atm So what druid got? hibernate/soothe. I played mythic plus dungeons betweeen +2-10 as an boomkin / warlocks affli / destro.in beta, most of the time when mob enrages a whole pack enrages, so if i remove one of five enrages? "wooow" those packs will be kited / stunned anyway, i dont wanna even start with the hibernate. Things that we already had: Blizzard took away druids motw because druids already had so many utilitys. Yea druid has CR, well warlock has it too, druid has roots / typhoon, those are cool but quite situational, where warlocks AoE stun / mages int buff are useful in every situation. Solar is cool when packs has many caster in it but 1min cd can be bad too. Innervate after we got some gear it didnt matter that much. overall if you compare druid, mage and warlock who has most utilitys druid wins so the amount replaces quality? did they count guardian / feral roars and restos vortex in that toolkit too? Lets say that balance is good in some of the dungeons but warlocks and mages are good in all of them, if you're mythic+ / druid fan that can be annoying to be left out just because of that. I know there always will be a fotm classes, cant help it, but i dont think this kind of method helps at all, makes it even worse. When i played as an warlock i just felt way more useful, i havent play mage, but damn i love them in mythic +, cant say same about balance! :[I played warlock in legion and i usually change my class between druid and warlock when new expansion comes out, i miss my balance and i'm going to stick with it anyways <3 when you play with your friends it dosent matter what class you play! I'd love to hear some criticism, am i too narrow here? it could pump some of astral power! <3
The horns for a wildhammer moonkin could be curly/curved ram-looking horns. With Celtic-looking engravings.
@Fenril7 Boomkin is the best caster spec for MM+ on the bêta with the frost mage, what the heck are you talking about ? My 60k dps burst say hello to your comment.+ for the first time moonkin can have a good single target DPS without inca.I'm 100% gonna main my balance for BfA it's a really REALLY strong spec atm
yea, didnt talk about DPS, my concern is that DPS will be balanced. and when it comes to that what do we give in that point? :]
Each spec has gotten more squishy and slower(gcd), but I still see no reason why I won’t be playing balance. Good summary and analysis.
@kiropeu The same things than Legion + hibernate and dispell enrage and wild growth? the biggest aoe burst and one of the biggest dps in the game ? I'm fine with boomkin.Balance bring way too much and is one of the best spec for MM+ right now and it's all that matter.
"Not just the removal of Stellar Empowerment (which was a welcome change)"Was it, though? You say it was a welcome change, then go on to say that balance spenders don't feel that impactful ("our spenders don’t always feel worthy of the time spent to build towards them"). Removal of synergy between spells tends to reduce the feeling of impact.
haha. that man went full on emo. QQ nerd :P Have fun with it. 99.9% of the whiners are low to mid-tier players. Play what you like. You arent getting world firsts and likely your crap dps is your inability to focus or do dmg and mechanics. Dont complain about dps tuning for your heroic dungeon runs XD. Wow has done better recently with making dps charts even than they ever have. Bravo.
