Haven't had a tank in BGs since the pvp:ing days of Shadowsong since people don't go for the tank anymore. I guess the "go for the healers first" message has finally gone through after 2+ years of repeating it. :<

Your poll is totally buggered... priests are the only pvp tanks.

- warrior pvp is done with a 2hander, not with a shield (except for when you're reflecting PoM pyro's and/or soulfires).

- druid pvp is about running away in travel form and spamming cyclone.

- pala pvp = bubble and HS.

a good tank specced druid usually takes about 5 people to kill

In AV you mean? Doesnt really matter really, you can be a crappy tank and still survive if you have a good healer behind you. As long as you can hold aggro on the bosses in AV you've done your part

For other BGs maybe a warrior if your playing as grp/premade, doesnt have the big weakness for fear like druid has, pally..? I dont know

Depends a LOT on which class, warlocks are the toughest classes to kill for druids, and having a great tank gear wont mean you can kill more people, just means u survive more - but doing less dmg

Don't need to deal much damage to prevent a node cap.

i didnt say having great tank gear means you can kill more. all i said was "a good tank specced druid can take 5 people to kill it" which ive seen in WSG sometimes. and ive been is the position myself when 3 or so of us is hitting on a bear form druid and his health is going down REALLY slow, then he starts healing while in bear form.

2 warriors and 3 rogue all in blues? Yes...
Or it can take 1 destrowarlock to obliterate druid in 15 seconds -.-

Well... resto cant survive in bear form so much, not against 3 ppl

and feral cant heal to save his life... litterally!

So you're saying you saw a druid who was in bear form against 3 people, then shifted to normal form to heal himself?

i guess Goonerr is referring to frenzied regen, since he mentions healing while in bear form.

A well played resto druid can survive for quite a long time against meleers(I'm talking 3 minutes or so if they don't have a specific point to guard). How? Just keep running away. Every time you get snared, you can get out of it. Make sure you're in bear form if burst is incoming. Use nature's grasp, bash, feral charge, and cyclone when appropriate. Heal when you can, keep moving. This gets quite annoying when people are trying to retrieve the warsong flag you're carrying :)

Of course, a single paladin counteracts all this with Judgement of Justice.

Well since last patch, if you hit NS while in bear form, it instantly shifts into caster form, AND applies NS. You can then cast Healing Touch.

Before the patch, you had to shift out before casting NS, so it's much quicker now to cast the big heal and shift back to Bear. Indeed now you could probably put a Rejuv AND a Lifebloom on in the same time, or indeed rejuv and Swiftmend.

Basically almost guaranteed full health again, plus frnezied regen for emergencies.

However, weakness against fear and some other stun effects can counter this if you playing against guys who know what they're doing instead of just mashing random keys.

As usual, depends on skillz of the opposition, but I wouldn't trade a druid against any other class for survivability :D

Hardest to kill in BG (by other players) id say is High resilience full resto druid in full arena armor.

This was a letdown.
I'm making a note here:
HUGE FAILURE.
It's hard to overstate
My disappointment
PvP Warriors.
We Mortal Strike
Because we can.
For the good of all of us,
Except the ones who aren't friends.

But there's just one cunning class that I simply can't beat.
You just keep on running, it's almost like you cheat.
And the 2v2 gets done
And I realize there's a ton
Of these druids who just
Never die.

I'm not even angry.
I'm being so sincere right now.
Even through you broke my snare
And bashed me.
And danced around pillars,
And threw all your HoTs onto yourself.
As they ticked it hurt because
I simply could not kill you.
Now these PTR notes give some peace to my mind,
And we're out of 2.3, they are patching on time.
Though we had to get burned,
Think of all the things Blizz learned
'Bout the druids who just
Never die.

Go ahead and root me.
I wish that arena was inside.
Maybe I'll find someone that can free me.
Maybe the pallies.
That was a joke, HA HA, CYCLONE.
Anyway their tears are great;
They're so delicious and moist.
Look at me still typing when there's arena to do.
When I check the ratings I get sad I'm not you.
I've some matches to be run,
There is screaming to be done
At the druids who just
Never die.

And believe me they'll just never die.
They're always drinking so they'll never die.
They're pillar humping and they'll never die.
With their lifebloom they'll just never die.
And when you're cycloned they'll just never die.
Never die.
Never die.
