What needed to be changed is remove sabertooth all together. Them giving it to feral’s meant they took away the baked in FB refreshing Rip under 20% health (any semblance of an execute phase).
These changes SUCK DONKEY balls when you consider 95% of the content until any “major” raiding happens is going to be 5 man content. Waiting 5+ seconds in our rotation to first apply Savage Roar and then something else ON TRASH is stupid compared to how easy other classes have to immediately do aoe dps. Holding onto a THREE freaking minute CD in 5 man content is STUPID considering all other class melee CD’s are generally 2 minutes or shorter.
Druids (especially feral) still maintain the most talents in their talent tree that do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for dps. Hell, we have FOUR complete rows of nothing for single target (can say that brutal slash costs lets energy for combo point generation but that’s it for that row). I’m not talking just “under-tuned” - I’m talking do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
They are clueless about feral because the developer at Blizzard don’t play their games anymore - they are college grads landing their first job. Blizzard development is the laughing stock of the industry atm. Despite what anyone says, they DO NOT have a QA team to test class changes - that is done via free labor on the Alpha/Beta. All feral theory crafters have moved on so we are left with streamers (bless their hearts) who don’t main ferals and can only give crappy “feels good/bad” first impression crap.
