Yeah it is. Perhaps I'm just getting cheesed off with the whole thing.I think your assuming I haven't raided. I was maxxed out gear wise for 3 characters (at least up to Ruby Sanctum) drops, and these characters have been pretty much maxxed since back to patch 2.4 Sunwell. I raid 2-3 times a week, and have done for 6 yearsI've done all the stats, worked out maxxing damage mitigation, and sometimes DPS, or burst healing for my preist - and every other stat and equipment relationship I can think of.I'm just bored of doing it. Bored of the game relying on it to remain competitive (at least at the top level).I think If I HADN'T been a top level raider for so long I'd be satisfied. It's the fact that my guild got some GF's in WotLK and personally I got close to a few RF's in the past that means stepping back and playing a more relaxing style is not going to satisfy me. Conversely continuing at the top of the tree now requires commitment to stat based activities that I now find very very tedious.I understand them perfectly - I just don't want to do them any more.Perhaps I just need to quit and admit I've had all the "juice" i'm ever going to get from this game. Now raiding in Cataclysm and the sense of Deja Vu is palpable."I've been here before" - "different GFX - more or less the same process"The more I write this the more I realise how I probably need a long break from the game. Even the end game has become a "meh" grind now. Nothing seems new or innovative or exciting. There is no mechanic or substance that I'm experiencing that isn't (at least in most respects) the same as it was in 2005.I can't believe I've just written that. Who said typng can't be cathartic?

Still not sure why you're posting this here (though I did stop reading when you went off topic and started listing your raiding history).If you are tired of doing all the stat research, use this fabulous tool instead. This article, and this tool are exactly what you need, so why are you complaining?
