Wish I was more excited about 4.2
Don’t get me wrong, I am excited about new content, quests, gear, etc.
I wish I was more excited about the buff to Kitty damage.
Why am I not you ask?
Well, rumor has it Firelands raiding is still as melee unfriendly as the current raiding content. (Note, I still only believe this to be the case for Heroic T11 raiding and assuming it will be the same for T12, or worse)
When your 10 man raiding team is expecting you to be boomkin going forward… how excited can you get about feral DPS?
It’s sad really, but I don’t think I am alone in wondering where blizzard went wrong in the “bring the player. not the class” mentality.
As a druid I am fortunate to have the option to play a caster for an expansion. But what of warriors, rogues, and pally’s that want to DPS? Is it no coincidence rogues seem less and less plentiful?
I am still excited and I look forward to playing more boomkin unless needed for some OT/DPS duties on specific fights… but I would have preferred it to be the other way around where going boomkin would be the exception and not the rule.
Thoughts anyone? My guess is people raiding 25′s have less of an issue. We are finding it harder and harder to get the people for a 25 man run. Either through disinterest, scheduling, or just lack of players at any given time.
I really prefer the 10 man format, but it does seem the tuning is just brutal and is possibly hurting the ideology of playing with friends regardless of class.
Oh well, I will continue to trudge on hoping we can at least keep the numbers for one or two 10 man teams in our guild.
