I want model 5 and scalar dungeons. I want to be able to walk into Big Bad Bob's Throne Room and kill Bob all by myself, or with 2 friends, or 24 friends. Tanking as a concept has always been anathema to me, and I would praise its passing. Healing as well, to a lesser extent.Coming into WoW 7 or so years ago, I expected Diablo-style gameplay, and I still want that after all these years. Every class should have built-in damage reducing cooldowns and mobility cooldowns and some sort of regen ability and of course potions.

You want Diablo-style gameplay? I have a great suggestion for you! You'll never, ever guess what it's going to be ... play Diablo!

/cry, I really can't think of anything worse from my perspective. I've tried DPSing and it just doesn't interest me and I find tanking a moderate improvement on that, but healing is a perfect fit. I enjoy the type of information management that comes from playing a healer and have now levelled all 4 healing classes to 85 although my Disc priest will probably always be my main.I will admit to being worried about the healing model going into MoP as it looks like they're going to simplify a great number of things removing some of the number crunching that I actually enjoy. I realise these views probably put me in the minority and have (mostly) come to terms with that, but if it was taken even further and healers were removed altogether I would have to find me something else to play!

@DancePuppets - I think part of WoW is people will always be able to find things to number crunch if that's what they like. The new talents and how they interact should be ripe with these kinds of opportunities. If you yourself are a number cruncher, I imagine you can work out which talents would be the best for your guild's raid group, your spec, and even each specific fight. Honestly, I expect to see even more number crunching than usual in the future ;).Agreed on class roles though, healing is something I really enjoy and I like to think I'm quite good at. I'd be very sad if they took it out of the game.
