What does everyone think of Feral druids right now? Underrated? Overrated?

Here's my take:
-Insanely powerful cooldowns
-Very high consistent damage
-Absurd CC (all instant)
-Ranged pummel with a mana-loss attachment
-Able to remove snares
-Run much faster than their prey
-Take some of the best abilities of their partners (bubble, disperse, shattering blow)

Considering the above, I think we're going to see a lot more ferals in this patch. With healing nerfed by another 15%, OOMing against a feral is an inevitability as opposed to a probability.

3 months to figure that frost bomp is OP, pretty pathetic.
Feral aren't so popular in arena, so players don't complain about them on official forum, that's why there is no nerf. Ferals are totally above all other talent, I said that first week of MoP.

To get a class nerfed : Complain a lot during 3-4 months on official forums. They read the forum at this frequency since they don't give a shit about arena, that's why it takes so much time to get something fixed nowadays.

Ferals are actually insanely strong, people will start to notice with these mage/war changes now. They will be very hard to fix because they literally have everything...

Ridiculous old 60 mechanics like immune to root/snare and immune to polymorph/repentance/hex make them near uncontrollable. Then obvious things like instant clone and incarnation lasting 30 seconds make them the strongest spec (followed by shadow), even before the frost bomb nerf.

Ferals just need cd on instant clone(20secs) and nerf burst with oneshot macro, but if u cry about feral dmg.. you need to cry about warr damage, sp support, dk perma dmg, hunter perma dmg/cc but ye, ferals need some fixes :P

thank you conrad for making this thread, i have to agree on most of your points, but one thing i hate the most is that as a mage they can just swap out of my snares, and if my teammate needs peels vs a feral i cant do much to stop them, seeing most kitty cleaves train healers its rather annoying, only way is really to train the feral but ye thats kinda annoying cause he often has bouble with all hes random cooldowns and stuff and if you trinket something your sure to sit in those clone full drs

At this point I start hating AJ. Mages are nerfed, Warriors got some nerfs and now the community starts to search for the new op class. When this gets nerfed the communit bitches about the next class. A vicious circle...

Ferals we're OP even before they nerfed mages and warriors so yea, now they are even better.

You can't deny the fact that they are disgustingly OP atm.
