I am an avid triathlete and fitness enthusiast, and since having completed grad school two years ago, I have worked as an English professor at a local community college here in the greater Los Angeles area.
This thread has devolved into chaos--back on topic, however, I don't see the problem with Soul of the Forest. As at least one person noted, druids trade a massive healing and survivability CD for SotF; moreover, SotF is pretty predictable once you know the opposing druid has it. If your enemies are all topped off and their druid swiftmends, how hard is it to realize that a cyclone is probably headed your way?
Yes, it can be really frustrating, but so can every ability that is used with finesse and impeccable timing.
It does not matter what rating u need to get a gladiator, it's just a number, it does not have any meaning.
Btw in s4 2150+- was glad in some bgs.
Exactly. These kids are so worried about rating, but all that matters is glad still means "better than 99.5% of the people out there" as much as it ever has. At least now people don't have the option to move to a backwater bg to push rating/titles.
What does Lichborne/IBF/DesG do against slows and roots? Nothing. Most - if not all - DK's are happy to trade DesG for a root/slow removal. The fact that they dont have one promotes super saiyan DK tunneling.
What also promotes DK tunneling is the fact that DKs can root/grip an entire team. There is no point to chasing down a healer when the DK can pro-peel the whole game long. Face it--yes, DKs are susceptible to some CC and are nearly immune to others. That is what is called "balance." I really don't see why any class would need to be immune to all CC while also having the most incredible raw damage around.
Okay, I am a bit biased. As far as I am concerned, the class is still paying penance for s5.
