I can't speak to other classes and specs, but I'll remember 2008 as the death of my very favorite-ist MMO character ever, the shadow priest. The homogenizing of the classes is making the game mind-numbingly dull. I loved being a utility class and mana battery, even with low DPS output. It was great actually having to be a good player to justify a raid spot. Why be a SP now? They're no better than any other button-mashing pew-pew class now, and without CC.I'm guessing it's why I see very few SPs nowadays... they're all Disc or Holy now.

It seems that being a shadow priest just stopped being as much fun after patch 3.0. All of our guildmembers who had SP main characters, either switched to a healing spec, or have another toon as their main character.

AMEN!I was an Enh shaman pre-BC, and I enjoyed being the underwhelming DPS class that was begged for by all the rogues. Not everyone gets stars in their eyes by competing on the meters -- some of us enjoyed being pure utility.In wrath, now I'm healing. It's the closest thing I can get to being a "pure buffing" class.
