I'm reposting this due to forum account changes which made me lose access to my old posts. I would like to see an enchant that would be fully for PVE to enable transforming more often for non-intellect/spirit builds so that they may have more cross class synergy instead of mostly being confined to one form. A high base cost in regular wotlk is fine because when you play a feral druid you are largely confined to that form anyways, outside of certain niche situations.
Now currently the cost of feral forms is 30% which is actually lower than wotlk's 35%, but still too high to allow smooth swapping for PVE classless fantasy, and largely cat builds are simply relegated to staying in the cat form, as its too much mana to swap. I was told that they were lower previously, but nerfed back up due to abuse in PVP, since druid transformations remove certain CCs on cast.
If that is truly the case the solution to this is easy: A Rare RE that simply removes that benefit and reduces the cost significantly, making it undesirable to choose it in PVP situations. I would propose it to be: Bear and Cat Forms now cost 10% base mana (I'd actually prefer if they were free to cast), but no longer remove CC on transformation. All this would mean is that Bear and Cat forms are now more able to be matched with other class abilities that remove the transformation, but can't be abused as easily in PVP. I just think it's ridiculous because no other class abilities you have to pay a giant toll just to have access to them. It really ruins the classless fantasy to have this toll just to be able to use abilities.
