    Default No 9th level bear spell

    There is literally not a single 9th level druid spell that could have any conceivable use to a bear-focused druid.

    My suggestion would be to add a self-only heal-over-time that you can use while raged. Maybe give it a reasonably lengthy cooldown like 30 seconds.

    Also, I'd suggest removing the immunity to healing from Unstoppable, it's just not that powerful.

    There are so few 9th level Druid spells that my Pure Caster memorizes all of them...despite the fact that 3 of the 6 spells apply to 3 different forms...

    Maybe we will get additional forms such as Bear/ Air/Earth someday over the rainbow where blue birds fly...

    Maybe we even might get an additional non form 9th level spell ~ gasp!!!

    Nice that Storm of Vengeance is being improved.

    Maybe, but the 18 and 20 cores in the bear tree are pretty good.

    I'd argue the 18 core is nice for the Tremor change, but the capstone doesn't actually improve or add anything beyond 5% attack speed and I guess the spell cooldown reduction, but that's still meh.

    Right now I see 12 bear/8- being the most attractive of multiclass options. Otherwise you just plain go pure or the 18/1/1 split. Which I assume would be Druid, barbarian, and cleric/fvs for divine might.
