So glyph of empowermet was a bit too passive, they said. And what's the alternative to it after patch?
Well, considering that the new elite glyph is garbage (7 second channel with a huge CD), there is only a viable and obvious alternative for druids: add another spirit to the build and play with 4 spirits + heal or directly with 5 spirits. In other words: the most passive build ever.
And that's the excuse for what will be for sure the 4th druid nerf in the last 4 balance patches. Devs will observe that, after this patch, druids are just passive shepherds of spirits, and so spirits will receive another huge nerf... "But only to make druid less passive".
