That is a stupid statement. Wards (there are 6 of them), abundance, abundant aura, bless, bark and sanctuary, thats 11 skills not including touch and breath. Takes many druids to cover for many skills. And even tho not all are used at same instance, druids need to alt nonstop. Moreover, I dont know how many are there on Sulis, but the amount of druids (especially high lvled druids) vary from world to world.
On morrigan for example there are 7 220+ druids, 3 of them being same person meaning if shes there then there are at least 3 druids.
On Belenus we have 4 220+ druids, 1 lvl 214 or now 215 druid and 1 213 (also 1 207 that needs to lvl, rest inactive or still far). Yes, if all of these druids mentioned were 215+ we would have 7 druids as well, but, its extremely hard for us to get them on at once due the extreme time zone differences (one 220+ from US, the other 3 from EU), not to mention that although they all exist they arent always active.
Still, AoEs are a must in every MMORPG game, I would just sum the suggestions to two main suggestions :
1. Make AoEs less frequent on bosses, their cooldown is too fast.
2. Add the red area which stands for the AoE's range, that is also an idea that exists in many MMORPGS, and it makes it much easier to notice.
3. (Optional, only first 2 are must as Ive said), Make the animation for every AoE a bit easier to notice, it'll make it easier for us and a bit more exciting too.
