Topic Resto druids (again)
People, this is just so pathetic.
I have played a lot of resto druid in BG, okay, it is hard, not very rewarding, but okay.
Yesterday I was against a resto druid as disc priest.
This is just so sad! I was in my WSG flag room. There was a druid in tree form shooting instant Wraths at me. If I could, I would have sat down, but your character stands up when you take a hit. Well I can tell you this tree couldn't even get through my shield. Knowing it was senseless to dps her, I just waited 20 seconds till her form was gone, then started to kill her. She tried to run away, but decided to turn around and fight me. Yeah, stupid druid. Resto druid against disc priest. Yeah, very smart. Anyway, she died within a second or 15. Never got me below 95%.
Then later a resto shaman took our flag. I knew it was completely senseless. I put some dots on him and just mounted and kept up with him. I waited till we had 3 ppl on him and then started to dps. It was useless. Within a short time the enemy caught up with us and we never got that shaman down.
What's with this sick imbalance? I'm even talking about 70 twink BG where most dps just stack agility, strength or int. So resto druids die extremely fast, but resto shamans... unkillable.

It's because disc priests' shields are OP in low lvls.
I know :)
I play with no heirlooms (new server and all that) and if I have a shield up, most specs (not counting hunters and rogues) won't be able to dent me.
Also, no problems with resto shamans on my part. I did a 1v1 duel yday and managed to kill him after a couple of minutes.
As a DK, the only healers I seem to have trouble killing are Resto Druids. OF course, you can't really tell how geared players are just by looking at them, though you usually can tell how geared they are by hitting them. It's not so obvious with healers though because their heals and their resilience can seem a bit muddled.

I love to kill hunters on my disc priest. They are my favourite target. Except when they kite me and stay out of 30 yard range.
I know disc is a bit strong. Sometimes, against lesser geared players, I can manage to fight three players and kill one or two before I die (or get help). If there are no healers.
But it's not just the shield you know. My dps skills are just way stronger than that of a druid. I have two fast cast high damage spells on a cooldown. I have two strong dots, one of which heals me. I have a finishing move. I can dps with Penance as well but I rarely do that because I want to have it available for heals. I can taunt bad players to interrupt my Mind Blast. I can fear. I can prevent being silenced when I need a heal. Oh and don't forget the anti-rogue spell (Holy Nova).
What is a resto druid going to do? Cast Starfire? It takes so long your opponenent is probably out of range, behind a wall, or simply behind you when it finishes.
It would be nice to have an uninterruptable Wrath.
Even with the free Wrath talent, you do so little damage and it takes so long before you get that Starfire proc...
