Shifting Perspectives: This month in WoW druid history

Every week, WoW Insider brings you Shifting Perspectives for cat, bear, restoration and balance druids. This Tuesday, those who do not learn from history will be entirely unaffected by it.

My four-year anniversary on WoW Insider came and passed in February without my realizing it at the time, but that’s OK.

But the anniversary did poke me into trawling through old team email lines and reading my older articles on the site. (That’s how much I love you guys: I read my stuff so you don’t have to.) I started kicking around the idea of doing a March 2008 through March 2012 retrospective. March 2008 and March 2009 (my first and second years on the site, respectively) jumped out as being especially compelling months for druid players, with a lot of issues being discussed that wound up being pivotal to the class’ development. But March 2010 and 2011 weren’t quite as interesting, although it would probably be more accurate to say that they were interesting in ways that weren’t very class-specific.

Since we haven’t gotten any major class news from the recent Mists of Pandaria press event (although you’ll probably want to see the five new druid glyphs), I thought we’d buck the dominant trend this week and spend some time in the past rather than trying to get a handle on the future.
