This is absolutely NOT true. In a melee-heavy raid, this thinking leads to OOM issues way too early. This is no different that getting out of a fire. DBM/Bigwigs has a timer for this, and there is a casting bar (albeit short, like 1.5s) for the ability.
Apr 24th 2009 12:06PM Someone mentioned simply having more gear drop in 25-mans, above what would normally drop when scaling up. Drop 2 items in 10-mans, and 6 or 7 items in 25-man.
Make the 10man loot tables entirely different from 25man loot tables, but the same ilvl. Make people WANT to run both.
Dec 31st 2008 4:21PM I can't speak to other classes and specs, but I'll remember 2008 as the death of my very favorite-ist MMO character ever, the shadow priest. The homogenizing of the classes is making the game mind-numbingly dull. I loved being a utility class and mana battery, even with low DPS output. It was great actually having to be a good player to justify a raid spot. Why be a SP now? They're no better than any other button-mashing pew-pew class now, and without CC.
I'm guessing it's why I see very few SPs nowadays... they're all Disc or Holy now.
