Read half the other threads I posted in, I clearly state druids are MUCH stronger now. However, when someone comments and says "druids are the strongest healer," I naturally demand evidence for such a claim because my experience paying a druid says the contrary.
^Pre nerf to healing. I actually got higher than that in other games, but never took the minute to snap a screenshot to one of those.
I'd say we are.
Now we're still killable, but as of right now, we are the fotm healing class.
I am honestly done commenting after this post. I think your understanding of FOTM is a bit off. You can't call druids FOTM right now because all healing is scaled for 90 and health pools are tiny right now. Our hots are incredibly powerful and act as burst healing at 85. I and many other druids have stated that this changes at 90, I don't know what else to say.
We don't even have an arena season going on right now....EVERY "druid is op" thread is coming from people who experienced them in bgs. I got news for you, druids have ALWAYS been good at running the flag and being evasive in bgs. Druids have always been good at aoe healing in bgs especially when they don't get focused. Overall, druids have ALWAYS been good at bgs period.
This thread is about arenas. And I can say with certainty that resto druids, even during the TBC were never overpowered in 3v3 or 5v5. They were only exceptionally strong in 2v2. Even during wotlk when druids took no skill with lolToL druids were still the lowest represented healer in 3v3 and 5v5. I am taking past evidence and applying it to the future, and there is nothing wrong with that.
I EXPECT druids to be amazing at bgs, amazing at 2v2, good at 3v3, and trash in 5v5. It is the way it has always been, and how it will probably (but not certainly) always be.

The most popular comp this season will be Resto druid, Fire/Frost mage, Affliction/Destruction warlock.
I am sorry, I know I said I was done replying but I just couldn't resist.
You listed new abilities that a druid will get, then said "what kind of idiote wouldn't bring a resto druid with them?"
Let me show you why that is a poor argument.
Shamans are getting stonebulwark totem, priests are getting x and y from z with m.
What kind of idiote (lol idiot) wouldn't bring a shaman/priest with them.
Resto droids are beter than all the oter heals b/c of hots. Resto drods can heal and not hav too cast. LOL.
resto druids are the best healers at 90. they have the most tools, and their healing output can now deal with damage people are putting out. they were workable in seasons 10 and 11. you are wrong.
they're as viable as ever. they no longer have the biggest healing output while supplying the most tools so they're not the best pick every single time in every single comp, but they're still very viable.
every comp you ran will probably still work; maybe not to the same effectiveness, because you won't be able to cover up a bad positional mistake with a heal that brings you from 10% to 100%, but they'll still be very good
if you want fotm, though, roll druid
