"Well, and what class you play.If you're a Hunter you shouldn't even buy the expansion until they are done working on Hunters."And if you only care about arena which apparently is what you mean.Hunters have gotten a ridiculous amount of love so far PvE solo/small group. True tanking? okay AoE? Heck, even for PvP: a disarming pet is not trivial. The arrow trap isn't fantastic but it's not bad (for PvE), allows lots of new tricks for specialty circumstances which can easily be arranged.I tooled mine around on beta and it was sickeningly good. Not raided with it yet, so mana may still be a big issue. Otherwise, they're fine--and, sadly, may replace my beloved main (mage; that class is getting more of the same but not enough of it either) and maybe main alt (warlock; confused state right now but generally fine...they really need to work on destro though. Making fire the way to go through complicated gimmick casting won't work any better than it did for BC arcane mages; that the tree is still great is more about how strong it started than good new directions).Okay, I say fine...BM domination is still an issue, though survival has some sweet new tricks.On the broader issue, meh. Yeah, some things are a mess. Same was true with BC. I'm mostly worried the pacing will be off. I hated all the attunement hoops as much as anyone but they did serve a purpose, especially coupled to the bigger gear reset. Lich is going to hit with a better geared player base and less of a reset AND no roadblocks...it's going to be stripmined content-wise in short order.
