wow... I'm actually shocked at the number of the people who don't even look up the "cookie-cutter" builds.It was somewhat understandable when I randomly inspect other players, but I guess I expected more from Wow.com readers...Anyway, I'm excited to see what changes blizz is going to make to talent trees in the next expansion. They did say they're going to change a lot about it.

I -always- look up Elitist Jerks. Every time. But I never, ever just copy/paste the spec. I'll have a loot at what they all have to say, and then I'll go in game, and pick all my talents myself. 'Cookie cutting' takes the fun out of speccing your toon, IMO.My build -does- take heavily from EJ recommendations, due to a few factors (mainly stemming the fact I have enough time on my hands to go hardcore but I'm stuck with wireless internet, meaning raiding in even 10-man is impossible 90% of the time) including the fact I'm nowhere near 'geared'.Theoreycrafting my abilities, specs, rotations, etc. when I can't raid 'cause of Internet issues (see wireless internet) means that when I do raid, my DPS doesn't suffer as badly due to lack of gear.Most of the time, it works out pretty well.

now i don't raid so i don't hurt anyone by my opinion.but the way i see it, i play a game, that i have to pay for. i'm not doing homework for it too!that said. i do look things up occasionally. but i don't believe you should be expected to. (i thought half the fun was working it out yourself anyway :D )
