Mar 2nd 2010 7:19AM I honestly can't put my finger on it, but something about all this simplification bothers me. It's like there's nothing to separate the dedicated players from the players who pick up the game and want to act like they are awesome.
It's not that I think Blizzard is doing anything stupid, I just don't get it. It seems like this way they might as well group all casters together, all healers, etc. The differences in gearing are slowly vanishing. There was a time when I could look at a piece of gear and you could immediate acknowledge, that's a holy pally piece, or that's a shadow priest piece.
As I said, I can't exactly figure out why this worries me. I just hope Blizz makes these worries non-warranted.
On a completely separate note, I would like to see Blizz add something of a faction within a faction. For instance, as an alliance, I would want to work with Jaina more than Varian because of their methods and views. I'd be more than willing to work with the horde to accomplish goals. Likewise, I know many would work with Varian and wholesale kill off any horde they come across. I think it would add an interesting twist to what seems to be a complex conflict coming in Wrath.

It's often easy to forget that truly new people do join WoW everyday. On the flip side of that, I find that all too often old people assume you're a noob just by your level. I dunno how many times I've been on a low level alt and someone asks a question. I try to answer and immediately get "how do you know you noob?"
Yeah... it's not even possible for me to have a level 80... much less multiples.
