Jan 9th 2009 2:54PM It may have been said already, but from looking at the stats, it seems players are gravitating towards the more over-powered classes since the release of WotLK. Something else to consider, though.
Warlocks, Priests, Druids, and Mages got shafted when it comes to new abilities and talents. Their new abilities are anything but spectacular. Consider though, that when BC was released all these classes got amazing new abilities, while Rogues, Warriors, and Hunters all got the shaft.
There's also a nerf-bat coming to most of those overpowered classes (except Deathknights, sadly, who definitely deserve it).
In the end it all balanced out before, and it will again.
Dec 2nd 2008 12:06PM A quick tip for healers:
use the smallest heal that's able to get the job done. Know how much each of your different heals is capable of, and don't over heal. Extra healing is just wasted, and adds to your aggro. For example, save your big, long cast heals for the tank. A simple flash heal or HoT should be sufficient for clothies. Something in the middle is likely needed for melee dps. Also, if a boss has a particularly hard-hitting attack, be prepared for it. If a tank gets really low on health, use your HoT, then a quick-cast heal, then a really big heal. This is guaranteed to keep your tank up longer. Remember...if the tank dies, 99% of the time, so does everyone else. Lastly, avoid using any sort of AoE heal unless it's absolutely necessary, as these draw enormous amounts of aggro.
