Yes meta gives us haste.
My point was that with current state of meta and being 6 seconds, we have to stack obscure amounts of haste to actually hit a point where we do damage in that window.
My solution to that was to add the furious gaze buff to the talent or give us first blood baseline and allow us to talent into FG in its place.
I’m by no means saying its perfect, but currently our demonic window is quite lackluster unless you stack haste on every piece of gear which then takes away from stats that we could further value.
Haste is fine within meta, but unless you pop that 4 minute cd you are left with not much even with that demonic window.
Mayne I wasn’t clear with my post and thats where the confusion came from.
Furious gaze gave us a sort of damage amp when we cast a spell. It added a little synergy to the demonic playstyle that it lacked.
So you want a lot of our damage to scale from a set and forget ability we pop literally only to gain fury? I think that’s bad class design if you ask me.
So in your eyes if all damage a druid did came from thorns you’d be okay with that? Just absolutely degenerate design if you ask me.
Our damage shouldn’t come from a swirling fire that we hit whenever its off its mildly long Cooldown, it should come from our abilities. And currently those abilities when playing demonic are few and far between due to the inevitable nerf and new haste breakpoints we have to hit to even feel remotely fine.
You want to talk about legendary? Because all of them are absolutely, ludicrously, out of sync with our class and add no depth of game play and feel clunky to use. For each legendary you either hope for a prox which the chance is abysmally low, or you throw a glaive at 5 stacks. Nothing that synergises with our current kit at all
