RBG - Arena - BGS (In order)What are your biggest quality-of-life issues? For instance, no longer requiring ammo could be considered a quality-of-life improvement for hunters.
Concerns are more genuine than just "quality of life." See opinions below.What makes playing your class more fun?
The versatility of the class would probably be near the top. With 3 distinct play styles, it is easy to get a variety of enjoyment when one becomes bored with another. The uniqueness of “Forms” is also a draw, being the only class in the game with forms which can be used to alter the class itself.What makes playing your class less fun?
Since I’m strictly PVP oriented, the major frustrations that I observe are that of a caster whose whole play style basically revolves around tanking damage. The fact that there is a 15% damage decrease built into moonkin form just goes to show that this is known, but with so many gap-closers for melee, it’s hard for me to figure out a solution that would appeal to both parties involved (boomkins/melee). It doesn’t help that typhoon is still bugged after a very long time. Seeing as how it is supposed to be a way to put distance in-between you and melee, it would seem that this spell would be of the upmost importance, yet due to its buggy nature, hurts us a lot pvp wise.
When playing in arena or bgs, I feel very much like an affliction warlock, but with no dispel protection. I understand that the must be a tradeoff when attaching a UA sort of debuff when dispelled, but when a priest can get rid of 2 of your large damage sources with 1 dispel, it can be disheartening. The same is true in regards to entangling roots, with its weak damage absorb and ease of dispel, it hardly affects melee and is not even worth trying to cast (that is if you could manage to cast with melee interrupting you).How do you feel about your “rotation”? (Rotation is the accepted order in which abilities are used to maximum efficiency.)
N/AWhat’s on your wish list for your class?
A variety of the following (not all) would benefit boomkins in PVP:
A working/reliable gap maker (I’d kill for Tstorm-like reliability on typhoon)What spells do you use the least?
Dispell protection on dots
More reliable snare (Larger ER absorb or even physical debuff ER)
Starfall working through CC.
No GCD on mushrooms. It shouldn’t take 4 casts to use them.
Thorns hits like a wet noodle, buff it so melee thinks twice about hitting you.
Healing as a druid spec’d boomkin is very weak. It’s sometimes not worth switching out of form and losing the 15% to try and heal yourself.
Treants that are useful, low damage and easily kited are not very helpful. Even giving them snare protection would be nice.
As a boomkin in PVP, hurricane’s mana cost is way too expensive to be used often.
Mushrooms do get used, but not as much as I’d like. The removal of the GCD would give me more reason to use them when getting attacked.
