Druid vs Rogue

Druid
I love my druid. But I've heard ferals are getting nerfed in 5.2. My goal at 90 was to start pvping alot as a feral but now that the nerfbat is coming im not sure if I should roll a rogue. My question is this: are ferals being nerfed to the effect of being broken, or are they still going to be a viable pvp spec? I dont want or need it to be an "OP" class bc by all means thats not what is fun to me and just bc a class is OP doesnt make it entertaining. I love my druid but I am concerned that he will be broken...
Go boomkin and smash rogues instead :D
you otter know!?!?!?
They are toning down burst via cooldown stacking and nerfing Pred Swiftness clones that is all.

Ferals will be more balanced next patch and still strong. Rogue will just be more competitive next patch but good ferals will still be able to get high up in PvP.


Feral will have PS nerfed with cyclone becoming near unusable. As stated above Feral burst will be decreased, but supposedly damage will become more sustainable.

Personally the PS nerf - not sure how much that will impact Feral's (obviously will be less viable than current). For sustainable damage - this will not be the case unless patch notes change. Currently no information is out from the patch increasing damage in any way.

For the above quote: please explain your comment on "more balanced next patch and still strong"? Feral's currently without the nerf can NOT get high up in PVP rankings - their are ZERO in any high current ranking (Arena or RBG).

Please don't. I don't like FOTM rerollers mucking up my class.
Essentially all rogues and mages are FOTMs.
It's just a question of how early you jumped on the bandwagon.

Not sure if troll...

In case you were serious, Here's Talason, a feral. 2.5k RBG and 2.6k 3's. You can watch him playing with vilefic on twitch.

With the wintrading and inflation of RBGs, I wouldn't put too much in that statement. As for arenas, people could get their T2 and back track through arenas.
