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
So I have had some time to look over the changes to the game since the big patch. It will take some getting used to. I am still not used to stacking expertise on my hunter. The loss of a melee weapon hasn’t affected me at all since they took out the minimum range requirement. It seems like Beast mastery is now able to hold its own with the other 2 specs.
I am still adjusting to my paladin the biggest change that has affected me has been the addition of 1.5 more seconds to Crusader Strike and Hammer of the Righteous, Seems to throw off my rotation and leave me with a little dead zone.
My warlock has had the biggest change with all pets getting redone. Granted Playtime on my Warlock has been limited so I am not fully familiar with all the other changes.
I just turned my druid into a guardian So there are no changes that I have to deal with 🙂
Everyone has already beaten these preparing for MoP post into the ground but I am behind the curve So I figure I would start late. I received a Beta invite and downloaded the beta. I haven’t actually logged in yet, I am hesitant to reveal too much of the new content to myself before launch because it will make the new feeling wear off that much quicker.
Currently on my Achievement hunter I am trying to finish Loremaster before the expansion because blizzard has this evil habit of resetting the stupid thing everytime. As far as who to level when MoP comes out Forzaken (Hunter) will be first Forzaken was the first toon to level 70 and has led the way in every expansion pack so far. After that I am still undecided between Druid or Paladin. The paladin has been pretty much tank only since Wotlk And the druid has always been boom chicken. For MoP the Druid is going to go Feral tank (I think the new in word is Guardian) I may keep the paladin as tank or might go healer. The Lock will probably be the last of the max level toon to move to 90 I enjoy playing the lock, I am just not any good at it.
I am leery of MoP my totally uneducated impression of it is the descent of WoW into more easy mode. I might log into the beta in the next day or 2 and poke around.
