Worried about Cataclysm.
Maybe I am just being a little paranoid here but the lack of feral kitty talk by the blues in such a long time is making me nervous.
Feral kitty is in a really good place atm, a complex rotation that rewards high DPS along with good raid utility. Mind you we gave up the ability to be good DPS and a good tank in the same spec but still… how long will Blizzard allow us to be competitive with the other pure DPS classes?
Maybe my memory of Burning Crusade is still too fresh.
I just don’t know if I could stand being sent back to mediocre DPS results becuase they feel they need to rework hybrids… again… This blue post is what got me thinking:
Hybrid Tax System
We’ll continue to polish it, but we’re not fundamentally changing the design. We think there is plenty of evidence to suggest that pure dps would die off if more flexible classes could do everything they could do and more. Again though, in most cases gear or skill will have a much bigger influence on your performance than the potential maximums we engineer into the classes. While the averages more or less follow our general design (with some exceptions that we need to address), you can find plenty of individual parses where a hybrid “wins” or a pure “loses.” (Source)
So with all the changes coming to Talents Trees and stat changes in Cataclysm I just prey we are not the exceptions that they need to address.
Note to Blizzard, leave us kitties alone we are just peachy… k? thx
