Not only 3 mana passives... but 3 passives, 1-2 actives, and gear to support more mana / mana regen / charger reduction.
I dont know any other class that has to dedicate that much just for resource management. Mana is broken.
Same here, brother. If you want to run bears on MP7+, especially if you run with a group, then you have to dedicate yourself to resource management. At the same time though, I used to hate spiders, but I love how they synergize with Vision Quest, and they do very respectable sustained damage while you are free to do other things, like cast ZC.
I still think WD is more fun to play... but can't help see the unbalance between classes.
I agree with you here too. Barbs and DH's definitely have the advantage to all the other classes when it comes to offensive passives. If you are going to use a high-cost Mana spender (like ZC), then there is no way you can run our only offensive passive and be able your damage for a respectable amount of time unless you go Bear Reduction on 2 or more pieces of gear. Frankly, I don't like the overall performance drop I get from an SoJ, so I'll stick to the 3 Resource Passives.

Spiritual Attunement gives you a 1% increased regen based on your max mana. For example, I have 1200+ Mana, so the passive gives me an additional 12 regen. The more regen you have, the more you get from Vision Quest, which is why these two passives play so nicely together. Put those two together with a the reduced mana cost you get from Blood Ritual, and you can cast bears for quite a while, provided that you haven't ignored Max Mana and/or Mana Regen on your gear.
