Are Duids OP?June 11, 2008
“Druids are OP” I hear it everyday.
I really don’t think that druids are over powered, I think that every class is equal and it just depends on your skill, spec and what kind of activity you are doing (excluding rogues… they really are OP). Don’t get me wrong, I can heal through a lot and I can keep myself alive a really long time, but when it comes to killing anything that’s where I am almost useless. PvE especially, farming is awful and questing too. PvP is okay; as long as I am able to keep the DPS classes up, things are good. Once in a while, I am able to get lucky though.
One Sunday afternoon I was on my way to the Darkmoon faire in Goldshire, when I was stopped just outside Stormwind by a fairly well geared PvP frost mage.
“What’s your resil?” he asked me.
“338” I responded.
“Ohhh can we duel? I want to try and crit you!”
So the big red flag popped up in front of me, I accepted. Next thing I know there was a frost bolt coming at me; it hit me for 2300 (I was in Nelf form). So I popped a couple lifeblooms as he casted again, and again. I just kept the lifeblooms stacked, as he tried to kill me. A couple minutes later, there we were, me at almost full mana (and health) and the mage, completely OOM.
So I took advantage of the opportunity, I quickly went cat, stealthed (was out of combat) and POUNCE. I tore that squishy, mana-less mage up!
Druids aren’t OP, are they?
