WoW Editorial: Druids in Arena PvP - Over Powered?

Posted Tue, Feb 12, 2008 by Shayalyn

Time to Swing the Nerfbat?

Anyone who has been in the arena combat system in World of Warcraft for any length of time has seen the rise of the Druid take place. There used to be a time when, if you needed a healer on an arena team you were looking for a Paladin for their survivability. Then players realized the power of a discipline based priest and their usefulness, and they entered in force. However over this past season Druids have been replacing almost every other healer in the arenas. Why, and are they overpowered? If so should they be nerfed?

So what makes a Druid so great in arena combat? Well for one, for some reason every single one I have run into seems to be glued to the tiniest piece of terrain in the arena and you can never get line of sight on them. Ok, maybe this is just player ability and not really anything to do with the class, but for some reason more than any other class druids know how to use the terrain to the fullest. Very annoying. On to the serious issues though...

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
