Looks like the naysayers were wrong!
I'm interested in how they will implement it. A light-armor cc class is not what I expected; that's too much like LM. Doesn't seem appropriate for a berserker, but we'll see..
It is true that the first few moments of many raid pulls can be the most difficult. So, if a Beorning can help get control over that, and then switch to dps/bear-form once things are under control, then there will certainly be a role for them in raids.
Changing into bear-form only after building up enough battle-rage at least solves the problem of shaped-changed bears running around Bree and such.
