Item Procs

Item procs are a limited mechanic.

For instance I am referring in particular to the new druid staff that allows them to change into a flaming cat during combat.

The problem here is that the staff has to be equipped during combat.

Now, how often is that staff going to be the optimal item to have equipped during a raid or other group encounter? Right now there might be several bosses where the staff is good enough, but the next raid tier? How about the next expansion?

The flaming cat effect should be a passive proc of sorts that the druid can learn rather than hoping to have the right content available to make the staff the right weapon to have equipped.
