Fix boomkin please.

Druid
i play a boomkin as my main and kills me to see how weak my damage is. blizzard nerfed my dots and starfall too much. as a boomkin i was used to doing a lot of damage if i free casted but died if i got focused. now it feels like i have to use all of my cooldowns to stay equal with everyone elses damage. blizzard please give me back my damage. p.s. reduce the cool down of heart of the wild. 6min cd is just outrageous.
Agree, We're unable to compete with other classes atm.
Yeah, at the moment, without popping cooldowns, I'm doing about the same DPS I did in mostly DS reg gear before the patch, even though my spellpower is about 7k-8k higher.
Agreed, when I go boomkin I feel like I'm pulling a lot less than what my feral druid does, and it's not from shortage of knowing how to play boomy either.
Yes I believe everyone just needs to post in here so they actually do something about it... My guild needs a boomkin but it just pains me to play one :/ so little damage and I get called a terrible player when I do... Now I can pull with all CDS popped about 40k but the damage is so minimal :/ FIX THIS MEOW!

lol.

Compete in single-target? Yeah, we're pretty bad.

But compete? Nope. I'm not topping the charts, but I'm certainly not being carried.

--- One of my "could-have-better" pulls, but decent enough.
Let me give it to you straight:

Blizzard doesn't scale damage based on people in blues.

Warriors will always be OP at the beginning of every expac because of the way their damage is scaled.

Boomkins can't be amazing unless you have a lot of secondary stats on your gear, which you won't until you're in full epics.

Roll feral, it's amazing.
It seems we now rely on 2 cool downs to pull the numbers other people do.
I am not maxed level though but doing normal 5 mans I noticed if I dont pop CA and Incarnation (incarnation when eclipse is up) my dps stays pretty low compared to others.

Really? When I do that, I'm pushing twice as much DPS as the rest of the group combined, you're probably not doing something right...
I usually pop incarnation then CA, one after another. That way I'm coming as close to bursting damage as a boomkin can get. Even better, if I can pop mirror image from symbiosis with a mage as the third in the chain, I can out-DPS the rest of the group. But if the fight lasts more than about a minute, I will quickly have my DPS eclipsed again (no pun intended :P). And without that third cooldown, I'm only doing about 40k.

I said Im also not maxed level in my post, my dps in 5 mans with CA and Incarnation can get to 30k
ive actually never had a dps problem. I havnt raided yet but in the heroics im always pulling atleast 50k without cd's
eh Cyous.. in the logs you gave us, seems like you rock the bottom of the dps meter lol, except for elegon.

Boomkin need some single target love.
Buff dots slightly so they hit harder than a wet noodle outside of their eclipse.

Buff wrath some.

Make AoE interact with our eclipse states better (give starfall the old MF/SnF treatment, maybe have the solar version be "meteor", crash a meteor down like that agi trinket did and leave some fire on the ground). Maybe give hurricane/astral storm ticks the ability to move our eclipse bar (along with the doubled outside of eclipse). Maybe then Astral and Hurricane could be equalized in terms of damage output.

Make `shrooms worth using in both eclipses (have them do spellstorm damage)

I'm typically in the middle.
Meh, all i see is that youre constantly at 40-44k while everybody else is at 48-50k, sounds like a case of buff boomkins, cause i know youre not a derp with all the testing and theorycrafting youve done : P
I wouldn't put too much into first week logs since encounters are new to a lot of people. 2nd week logs is where the real juicy stuff will be for us to dissect.
Ditto, even though im not @ 90 yet my damage is way weak.
i wont give u numbers, but i got feeling that our damage really went down, dots are just pathetic, wrath is joke, and only real damage output is when i activate all possible cooldowns

So people are crying for buffs because of a ~6k DPS difference?

This game has devolved into "we're not the best, we need buffs."
