Would it be overpowered to finally remove it? Tree form is considered an elemental so you'd be able to land it on druids in caster, travel, cat or bear form.
Considering ferals break roots/snares in a global with little to no consideration for their mana (imp. LotP procs back mana) it would finally leave us an option to cc them.
And seing as resto druids hard counter us I feel it would finally leave us with something (albeit not much since they'd just sit in tree) to get them cc:d long enough to score a kill on their partner (think DF on a druid who's going offensive to land the sheep).

The other implication would be to finally get shamans some loving aswell seing as not only are druids immune to Hex via shapeshift, but they can also dispell curse making Hex far from useful when facing a team with a druid.

Thoughts?

Yea i never understood why druids should be immune to both hex and poly, we are the only healer that is. Should be changed for balance reasons but IT MIGHT MESS with lore so i doubt it. IMO keep bear/cat/travel immune but if u catch a druid in caster in a poly he shouldn't be allowed to shift out.

I dont think ferals need any more problems atm

Beasts are sheepable so why wouldnt druids in cat/bear form be? :D

Myself and my Warrior always start on the Mage, if the Rogue opens in a good place for us, we swap and try to 1-2 global him.

I dont think ferals need any more problems atm. They already have Scare beast and hibernate, along with being close to useless in 3v3

Granted I agree there's a flip side to shapeshift forms aswell, but there is a huge difference for a decently skilled player. No matter if you're already caught in a cc (like blind or stun) you can still drop your current form back to caster and avoid these, off the gcd for that matter.

As it currently stands, a druid does not need to worry about positioning like any other healer does when faced with a mage. And it's not like other healers are immune to fear or anything that would in a larger picture balance things out, it's just druids and this one immunity.

Pro tip: Play a feral cleave (warr ferl pala) and shit on every rmp you meet.
CLEEEEEEEAVE

oh my god i just wanted to add that it is really hard to avoid hibernate scare beast (what heal druid actually runs around in bear/cat?) and banish, yes. i mean wtf, youd actually hit your shapeshift button more than once in a game (initial switch to tree form yay) to avoid cc.

You're a fucking trash Mage if you actually believe Arcane isn't massively OP. And on top of it all, Destruction damage capability is a LOT lower than Arcanes.

When you shift you dont do damage,so yes,"spamming" hibernate nerfs dps since we have to shift out alot.same thing as resto,when you have to shift out you loose 10K armor,15% healing and 6% healing.(something like that)

oh and i like facing locks when i'm not with a interupter in valor and he chases me spamming banish and if i shift out of it i get insta seduced >.<

druids are fine give us more control that isn't poly based. New idea for a talent, probably in the fire tree because blizzard is pushing fire pvp viability:

100% chance when struck by physical damage to gain the ability to cast while running for 10 seconds, 1.5 min cooldown?

god damn that would be sweet.
