So Patch 6.0 has been live for a week and my feelings on it are mixed. The button reduction has gone too far when you can maximize dps by hitting 1,2,3, repeatedly it dumb’s the game down too much.
The new character model’s look decent but the running motions are odd. They just don’t look natural.
The new outlines of Characters, NPC’s, and quest items makes the game that much easier because quality players can’t tell good from bad without a red outline.
Blizzard dropped the ball on the iron horde storyline. alliance and horde have the exact same quests but with different NPC’s
Forzaken-Hunter: I play Marksmanship so that is all I know. The loss of Serpent Sting, While minor has thrown off my dps a tad bit. The Sniper Training buff where you have to stand still I see as a Hindrance on movement intensive fights, The new sounds for Bow’s and Gun’s are a little too soft and I am still adjusting. Overall I am dissatisfied with the changes but they are workable.
Codex-Resto Druid: The loss of innervate could be a crippler. At the current time I am not running out of mana but I won’t know for sure until the new content is released. Symbiosis had it’s uses but is no great loss. The cast time on Wild Growth will make healers think for a second, and the 1 stack of lifebloom change is no change.
Druxus-Destro Warlock: There are no real game altering changes that I have noticed,
That is all I have at the one week point. Still figuring out the gear stats
I have recently started using Details! instead of Recount. Details! has a cleaner UI, Can fit in a chat frame and allows you multiple windows. I have been using it for a few weeks now and it has proven generally Accurate. It also plays nice with Elvui.
Details can be found at : Details!.
Another Excellent addon and almost a must for the alt-o-holic is Saved Instances. This tracks lockouts, Justice, Valor, Tradeskills, and reminds you when you need to complete warforged seals. and It makes them viewable across all your characters.
Saved Instances can be found here: Saved Instances
