Apr 2nd 2012 2:20AM I've always been a Hordie, but I've been slowly levelling a Dwarf Warlock through Kalimdor to see the other side. The most startling difference in story so far has been the cave full of kobolds in Stonetalon: the Horde go in to enslave them and send a kobold army against the Alliance base, while the Alliance are killing them to steal cheese and make an omelette.

Mar 21st 2012 5:53PM I think I like Demonology, but the non-Meta parts feel like a neutered mix of Affliction and Destruction and then when I'm a demon I don't know what I'm supposed to be doing differently.
Mar 20th 2012 7:11PM I'm so bad at Demonology that I'm currently levelling a Dwarf 'lock on an alt realm just to get a better feel for the spec. Affliction is my jam and Destruction seems to do tolerable-to-decent burst damage without having to know what you're doing, but I can't get my head around the Meta metagame.
I'm a little sad that there's all this cool stuff coming for the two specs I don't play and basically minor tweaks for Affliction. It looks like Haunt is gone and our new filler is a channelled drain-type spell, but soul shards just aren't compelling as-is, and I can't think of a way to "fix" them without making them so good you'd game the system to keep them rolling somehow.
Jan 31st 2012 2:32AM This. I probably buy about 1000 stacks of elementium ore a month from the AH, rarely at over 20g. They're definitely coming from botters, likely on hacked accounts.
Jan 26th 2012 5:04PM Further idea: extra tier tokens. In Cata, for example, you could have every boss in DS drop a guaranteed shoulder token on top of its usual loot table if you did it the harder way, like not killing any oozes on Yor'sahj.
Jan 26th 2012 4:59PM I've always wondered why it would have to be an either/or. For example, a council-style fight where the difficulty varies depending on which boss you kill could still have the hard-coded normal/heroic switch.
The trouble is if there's no additional reward, 99% of guilds will do it the easiest possible way and move on to the next one.
Jan 6th 2012 2:29AM It makes me want to race change my warrior to Forsaken...

I'm fine with sticking to healers, especially in Raid Finder or PUGs.
