Dunno if it's true or not (I never bother with the official forums anymore, especially after they changed/moved it), but I already heard it was all locked out over there, so you can't even ask questions or something? And if that's true, did anyone squeeze in some kitty ones?

The post IS locked due to posting limits. There is a blue post on it. Feral's should go and thumbs up the feral questions. Don't thumbs up the posts that break CoC as they will ignore those anyways.

Threads have a cap of 500 posts. US forum already reached, but in EU there is circa 50 free slot. There is some feral post (i actually post one with the most important q-s @EU #327) http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/1820913849?page=17#327

Will be some necessary BIG feral updates in the near future? - as you balancing several classes we don't seeing our class in that list. What will be this? We hope for example:
- do something with the Claw ability - its useless. I suggest to do some kind of warrior Cleave.
- AoE damage increase (Cat Swipe - similar as warrior Whirlwind in PTR) - we are useless in AoE phases nowadays.
- combo point transfer, and 4 sec cool down Prowl - like rouges have in PTR
- Ferocious Bite damage increase to make it effective over 25% enemy HP (because we use Shred and bleeds, and we have a lot of unused combo points)



But there are some intresting post. the better if we collect the feral themed posts...

That one is actually a Rogue complaining that Feral druids have better stealth than Rogues, instead of the other way around.

Reason for that, I don't know.

I hate to be a sourgrapes stinkypants but it seems to me that the classes/specs with the largest player base are very much likely to get questions answered here (even though generally they seem to get more feedback anyway). Nevertheless, we must try so I've given a thumbs up to all those feral threads. TBH I feel a little aggreived having to beg Blizzard to answer my questions...I pay for this game!

I totally agree which is why we must make our voices heard in a constructive manner.

They'll probably (I hope, cause yah a straight popularity contest on class questions is just gonna be bad) split the questions into categories and the top votes for each category get answered. So like a couple questions for each class, then the top questions that aren't directly related to a class (or something like that).

Anyone have a copy of this post somewhere? I found references to the post# yesterday, but it looks like it's been removed?

I would like to keep this thread open and hope it doesn’t disintegrate into a Blizz flame fest. They (blizz) have stated this is the 1st of many Q&A they plan to do. What I suggest is getting ready for the next one. Write it up in word. Spell check it. Grammer check it. Sit back and think about it for a bit then go over it again. When you have a clear well thought out statement then post on here and let us tear into it. Maybe we can add to or make suggestions. Then you can take the revised one and post in next Q&A and we can go upvote it and tell all our friends.

If you noticed they focused mostly on the world and quality of life issues for people in general. They only really touched on 2 classes (Hunter/DK) and only to say they liked were they went.

I agree with Sylvaneart that we need to not be discouraged by this. Better to stay positive and not be combative cause they will never choose to answer a negitivly posed question.

It seems they ignored all the feral questions from what I've come across so far. The did talk about boomkins and PvP saying that if a class is good at rated BG's then they won't do much to help it in arenas. Dumb logic to me but that is their reasoning for both boomkins and hunters.
