Makes sense or not, get over it. Not sure your aware but large amounts of things dont make any sense in wow, so stop trying to apply your logic to itPay the paltry amount of gold you wont even notice is gone and move on. Quit complaining
How silly are they going to get? It was one class that got a pretty cool benefit, it hasn't been a problem for years and all of a sudden it changes? What, are they going to bring back weapon skills next? Stuff like this changed for a reason back in the day, and while I'm all for reimagining choices from the past, some are ok... this is one of the times where it's ok to leave the past alone. Let Druids have their riding for free, really, who cares?
Friendly reminder that druids are the reason the monk cloud is so slow and that demon hunters can't fly despite having wings. Never forget what they took from you.
Who hurt you?
After all these years, that quest chain is still one of my fondest memories of WoW. Ah, the joys of trying to get a pug to go into Settekh Halls!
