I don't recall any polearms having feral or spellpower stats so if Blizz is introducing these items, that will be interesting to see.

ummmm. for a kitty, a hunter polarm (or a pally polarm for a bear) has very nice stats. whats wrong with AP agi, hit, crit, ap?

those are all feral stats. also, if you read the patch notes, they are changing the way feral ap works, so every weapon that gives ap, and does weapon dmg, affects their feral (moonkin too i guess) ap.

Yes, this change means that Hunters and Feral Druids will (more or less) draw from the exact same pool of weapons. Obviously there are no spell power polearms, so Balance and Restoration Druids will not be affected at all. Conversely, all feral staves are being changed back to normal stats, so Hunters will be able (and willing) to roll on them. Arms Warriors may benefit from the change as well.

Also, Gnomer, Moonkin form no longer receives an AP boost since 3.0, and when you're in Moonkin, you use your normal weapon DPS, not your Feral DPS.

If that was directed at me, I R Moonkin, so polearms are pretty useless.
