At times like these I'm kinda glad my spec choices aren't based on some numbercrunching.

Don't all classes and specs basically have some amount of number crunching and theory crafting?Basically, if you care about and/or take the time to learn about the numbers, statistics and how they affect you... they are always there to dissect.Obviously you can just go about your merry way and ignore them, but there's definitely something there for every class.amiright?

Oh of course they do, but I was just speaking for myself and meant that I personally base my spec decisions entirely on the theme of the spec instead of any sort of number-comparisons. And to be frank all these "oh god new changes must change spec immediately" comments boggle my head quite a bit but I guess my mindset (and playstyle) is just very different.BM might become the worst damage-dealing spec there is but I'd still be loyal to it because I just love my pet so (and he's a non-exotic too despite me taking the talent). :)

Ahh yes, that makes perfect sense now. :) I see what you mean.I personally like the dragonhawks from SMV even though the flapping drives some people crazy.

I'm the same way. In fact, while I agree the nerfs to my beloved BM spec were a bit more than I thought necessary, I found the protests that we were now completely useless a bit boggling. My meters show me still fighting for top DPS in my raids. I just had to make a few adjustments. I'm sure I'll adjust again when the next patch comes in.I play BM because that fits my style of play. Even if I could eke out a bit more DPS as SV or MM, I don't think I would, because when I have tried those specs, they didn't "sing" to me. I'm having fun, the bosses die, and I have a positive net contribution to my raid. Min-maxing is for munchkins. :)
