1. Strengths

  • Ability to take axe offhand for pulls without losing any damage.
  • Weapon sets are more flexible, allowing you to use staff offhand for small support without having to spec into a healing druid.

2. Weaknesses

  • Lower damage than condition druid even on bursty fights.

3. Current Viability

With the August 08, 2017 Balance Patch Power druid was unchanged, however even with the nerfs to condition druid, the DPS gap between the two builds is still 3k+ DPS in favor of condition druid.
