Blown away? No, not hardly. I will say Hyjal and Vash'jir are huge improvements over Borean Tundra and the Fjord, though, but blown away? No. Deepholm has been pretty mediocre too, sadly, definitely a step down from the starting zones. I'm also less than pleased with the current healing situation. Thanks to my gf not having Healbot set up, I've ended up healing all our guild runs in Cat so far. It wasn't so bad, but as soon as you hit 83...there goes mana efficiency. Look, I don't care how difficult you wanted to make things, I should not have to be worried about going oom on a trash pull in a non-heroic dungeon. It's just not right, it's not fun, and it's not challenging. Waiting after every couple pulls to drink doesn't do anything other than drag things out.I don't even want to know what healing a pug that can't follow the simplest direction would be like. ~.~

"Look, I don't care how difficult you wanted to make things, I should not have to be worried about going oom on a trash pull in a non-heroic dungeon."I hereby nominate Kia for Quote of the Day.Also gives me my golden opportunity to use my favorite line:"Yeah Alex, what's up with that?"Yeah, I know, I know. I'm just not sick of it yet. :)

Funny thing about the beginning of an expansion...healers tend to run out of mana while leveling and gearing up in the new instances. We did it during TBC, especially once you hit Shadow Labyrinth and Arcatraz, we did it in Wrath especially in Halls of LIghtning and Utgarde PInnacle, and we're doing it now in Cataclsym. It took a few months of running heroics for gear before we stopped having mana problems, although in Wrath after a year or so mana became almost a non issue.So, if you're going oom, then your group is too blame. All the melee have some form of sel healing they can and should be using, ranged has ways to protect themselves a bit, and most importantly if you are using crowd control healing is less intensive. I ran Stonecore with one group and we CC'd most of the mobs except for one or two in each pull, and the healer barely went a third of the way down in mana. I ran it again with another group of friends, and they are still in the Wrath mindset, and we didn't really CC at all, and the healer was running out of mana.It's not all ez-facerollmode anymore. I'm enjoying it!
