I am not trying to be a Prima Donna or anything but I had 3 raid tanks in Wrath, a Druid, DK, and my love of all my toons my Paladin. Right after they released the patch, I honestly felt as if I had bought my toons off of Ebay. I am the GM of a pretty decent sized guild and I hear many others upset over all the relearning we have to do with each new "big patch". If my guild hadn't of needed me to keep tanking, I truly would have just put away my Pally. I hate my DK now, I liked my frost spec! My bear is the only one that is even close to the same. The pally is the one that I have my 126 mounts on and all my achievements but I find myself playing my Hunter most often these days unless we are raiding then I grab my pally out. I no longer just Q up for randoms because of the tank shortage and hoping to help out a bit....Our guild is probably a few older folks than most and all of these changes really takes it toll on some peeps. A few of our guys are playing RIFT and a few others have moved on to Diablo and of course we all keep in touch even if we are not playing and truthfully many of us are looking to play a different game together just because of all the changes that a few peeps want. If this keeps up there will be an all time low player base, many of us hang in there hoping that Blizz will finally see that all the changes are what is wrong.

I find it odd that your players will bemoan re-learning a class that is at least a little bit familiar, but they'll gladly jump to an entirely new game to learn a new system from the ground up.Maybe they're just tiring of the game in general and are looking for other things to hold their interest?Personally, I enjoy the massive amount of changes that WoW undergoes. The game will never be 100% balanced, and in order to address that fact, they'll have to constantly tweak and change classes to keep things on a somewhat even playing field.
