All balance issues aside, it completely destroys the play style of the class. Without being able to hard cast it for peels and preventing healing, it just guts the utility of feral and feels dumbed down and stupid. I would rather they got rid of instant clones all together and removed the CD. They made this big ruckus about removing instant CC but left in all the obnoxious stuns/incapacitates/disarms.
I would imagine feral/sp/shaman is still good since it has sp/shaman in it
It wasn't in TBC/Wrath either, but it was still a lot of fun. It would take such a tiny amount of effort on their part to either bring the honor gear up to snuff, or simply reduce the stat variance between each season of gear.
That's what I don't understand. What the hell is their reason for not doing that? How is it in their interest to make pvp shitty and not fun? LFR is not a reason. Even if people did arenas to get gear to pve, so what? The reverse was true for 8 fucking years. People did pve and used that amazing gear in arenas, often to have an advantage. Now some players might be able to use some arena gear to bypass drooler-mode LFR and the fucking world is going to end? It makes no sense.
