Regardless of their intention, this really kills my desire to progress until 3.1 comes out. Why? I accept and even look forward to completely replacing all my gear when new expansions come out, and to a lesser extent when moving between tiers. However, what is the point of collecting gear now when "soon" our entire fundamental position changes and I will likely take an immediate hit in gear value. I'll need to go back and get the pieces I skipped before because now they are my new primary stats.

I totally agree, this stupid teasing doesn't make it any better too."Hey, hey, you want this DELICIOUS cookie, boy? You want it? You really do? HAHA, OKAY, SEE YA IN 3 MONTHS."

@NikkodemusI'm not seeing the gear changes you are predicting. Nerfing spirit and buffing a few mid tier talents doesn't look like it would do much to affect itemization to me, because the caster gear has already been homogenized so much. So maybe the rank ordering by slot shifts around a bit and we all end up re-gemming a couple of items.I'm surprised by the unanimous predictions of doom and gloom from the other posters. I plan to do what I always do when a big class mechanic change is incoming: pay attention to what the theorycrafters and PTR folks are saying on the forums and over at Elitist Jerks, and start thinking about what is going to change for me: do I need to farm lots of Rhino meat and stockpile Flasks of Mojo? Pick up some gems to regem after the patch? Is there a new optimal build for my talent tree? Come patch day, I'll be on my healer in guild chat or LFG looking for groups for the new content.
