Why change this? Why change that? WTF were they thinking? Wow are they really thinking this through?
I am sure many people though these same things when going through the latest patch and for the changes to come.
Why change at all?
I can understand Blizzard’s need to shake the nest. Without change things stagnate and die. Like living things, even WoW needs to change as players evolve and change.
With the smaller talent trees, I can see this as a push to make WoW easier for even the most casual player to not spec incorrectly (too much). The larger talent trees had many traps and pitfalls for inexperienced players to fall into. (71/0/0 – DO NOT WANT TO SEE THIS ON ANYONE, or 20/20/31) The smaller trees also focus players into a certain tree before branching out into the other two specs.
Thumbs up Blizzard. (and to the people who think it is dumbing down WoW…and yes I can empathize up to a point…however, the larger tree had a lot of useless stuff that could be consolidated and cleaned up. With the smaller trees you can still the same meat and potatoes we picked when the trees were larger.)
Why change that?
Why change the stats??? I don’t know about you…when I 1st started to play WoW…it was like reading a physics to a certain point.
SP? hit? expertise? haste? wut? cap? hard cap? soft cap? /brain explodes!!!
With simpification of stats…it does make it easier for even the casual to gem, gear, enchant correctly. Well hopefully.
With the change to stats though…hopefully we will not see DKs wearing SP plate anymore.
WTF were they thinking?
And I am talking about the change to glyphs. I am sure the scribes using to make money cried out in anguish. However, the new system is better and a lot more flexible. Allowing players to swap glyphs without losing it, is a really good idea. This allows for changing of glyphs that may benefit the raid/player more in a certain situtations.
Wow are they really thinking this through?
With the constant changes to classes….it does make one wonder…HAVE they really thought this out. Look at the changes to Holy Pally in the recent beta build, or changes to lock spells. But once again…things on paper always look good. It is not till it is tested and implemented when one will find out if things work as intended. I have to say for the most part Blizzard has done a good job so far…and Cata has me excited and chomping at the bit.
Worgen warrior!!!! /howls at the moon!
