I gotta say the quote:"aside from being a very complex endeavor that undoes a lot of class balancing over the years, the game simply isn't designed for Level 60 content anymore."Is complete bullshit. Any developer knows you never lose (or shouldn't) old versioning. A prime example to support this is WC3 RoC and TFT.

I wasn't referring to being unable to go back to an old build of WoW. I was referring to all the class balance that was done over the years to bring the classes as much on par with each other as they are now.Back then, you couldn't raid as an Enhancement or Elemental Shaman. You'd be laughed out of raids. Druids? Paladins? Nope. All these guys were healers. If you tried to spec otherwise, you'd be ostracized.A lot of work has gone into the game over the years in trying to make all specs viable. That concept didn't exist pre-TBC.

My raid in WoW had both Enhancement and Elemental shamans in it as well as a Balance druid. We didn't laugh at them, and we did just fine.And where is the class balance when they design fights to be healed where you can't stand still for even a couple of seconds. Are we supposed to heal the whole thing with Riptide?
