We now return you to..."THE STORY SO FAR"Locks - we want our soul shards to stack.Blizz - look at your cool new Drain Soul graphic!Locks - um...nice. But we want our soul shards to stack.Blizz - You can get a soul bag. Neat graphic, huh?Locks - Yeah...neat graphic. Why do we need to lose a bag slot? Can't you just make them stack? We also store these in the bank...Blizz - Ooo...we can limit you to 32 and make it so that you can have the possibility of a shard anytime you cast on a mob that would give you XP!Locks - I have 32 shards in my bag, 47 in the bank, and you're going to limit me?Blizz - But look at the pretty graphic!Locks - And I now have a CHANCE at getting one whenever I cast - but will that CHANCE still be there if the creature dies while I'm casting, like it always was at a 100% chance which is how I got so many shards to begin with that you're now taking away from me?Blizz - Look, we're working with you here...what do you want?Locks - WE WANT THE SOUL SHARDS TO STACK!Blizz - But clams stack...Locks - Screw it, I'm rolling a mage.

Some of us don't want the shards to stack actually...Stacking shards does "nothing" except give you another bag to put crap in... i've not needed it since they added the bags for them myself and most of locks who've hit 80 haven't needed that extra bag space all the way up to 80 so... you really should've learnt to manage them by now.Changes to the SS system should be for fun and interest not for inventory space... i cannot say this enough.I agree demo/destro need this updated soul shard system but stacking them will not have ever resolved the issue. Farming would still be required and running out would still happen.Regardless we're yet to see what other changes blizz have in store for the system.

@rosencratzI disagree. It's not a matter of 'knowing how to manage shards', any of us that have played locks a significant amount of time has dealt with having one less bag than everyone else. But that doesn't mean we have to like it. I'm all for stacking shards and getting one of my bags back.And since they've made drain soul a worthwhile spell to use while dpsing, I have no problem with having enough shards. I already have an addon that I can manage the threshold of how many shards I have in my inventory. But now we are going to be forced to be restricted to a set number of 32? While the change to Drain Soul is handy and welcome, I don't like the hard limit of the restriction. And stacking shards would still be a better change.
