Now, it's as if DoC is a must-have if you plan on doing competitive DPS as Feral, and that's completely unfun. One can argue that the other 90 talents are still viable choices, but the DPS output of those are far subpar to the output of DoC. Weaving HT into my rotation just isn't something I enjoy, but if I want to keep my DPS at a reasonable level, I have no choice.
I thought the new talent system was supposed to give us choice, Blizzard. Instead of balancing the 90 talents to make all 3 viable choices, they just nerf the only other 'almost viable' talent, giving Feral Druids really only one viable option.
