But, at least they are useful as tanks or healers.
I think it really depends on the skill of the player. Admittedly I am rather new to the game, but IMO this class is really dependent upon you using everything you've got, as it isn't the "best" per se at any particular thing.

I've run into countless nelf druids that just plain suck. I've had one attack me from stealth while I was fighting a mob, a level higher than me no less, same spec, and I killed him.

PVE is awesome for druids, and probably a bit overpowered here. I've lost count of how many times I've saved my instance party from a total wipe by using either tranquility followed by innervate on the healer, or a combat res which only druids can do. Then I have an AOE that is formidable even as melee spec, along with some of the best buffs in the game (mark of wild, leader of the pack, and soon omen of clarity.) Hell 2 days ago I ran ZF in tanaris as both main tank AND main healer, party of all 42-44ish, with a non healer spec shaman helping out here and there while focusing mostly on DPS; best of all is we never wiped even once.

If they ever seriously nerfed druid though, I'd probably quit playing. After playing rogue for 10 days I got bored of the game fast, but a friend was showing me a druid once so figured I would try that, and I got hooked quickly. I love my little tauren druid

Very funny.
LOL nice, what was that mod where it showed all of those enemy cast bars coming up? That looks uber. That is a hell of a lot better than the built in wow enemy cast bar. So far the only mod I use is one that shows your coords.

Maybe feral druid will suck at 60+, maybe not, but I don't really care. I just have a lot of fun playing this class. Also a lot of people keep telling me about things that suck when they don't end up sucking so I am skeptical anyways. A friend of mine told me how much feral druid sucks leveling with, which turned out wrong. My guild kept warning me about STV about how much I'll die there and how much I'll hate it, but that quickly became my favorite ally hunting ground. Especially nessingways camp, if you ever want somebody to kill right away, that is the best place to do it. Just watch out though because sometimes there are a bunch of 70's in it
