Sep 6th 2011 6:52PM I miss Frost tanking
Sep 6th 2011 6:49PM Well, this will give me a reason to stack mastery instead of balancing it out with the other mitigation stats. Im sure I will get flamed for this thinking, but I currently run a higher parry % then any of the others with a trinket that procs a huge dodge % as I parry. I get an electronic sigh when i queue up as a tank, but after a few pulls in a pug I often hear how easy I am to heal. That is if I hear anything at all, with the people who haven't quit group yet. My in game friends all say the same thing and appreciate that I did not follow the full raiders theory on how to dk tank by pooling all mastery stats as my choice reforge. While, I think a lot of the changes are potentially good, the one I am most excited to see happen is not being left with no runes 3/4 of the way through a pull because I am doing the death strike/blade barrier dance.

Nov 29th 2010 1:12PM Definitely do Silverpine and Hillsbrad. There is one of the best new quests there I did with my sons toon...You have to be a questgiver and hand out three quests to players running by. They then give you some colorful chat bubbles to read before being able to complete it. Was a surprise and a laugh to see Blizz laugh at there own creations in a way.
Sep 7th 2009 9:46PM Amusingly, this reply was the best out of all the others. Matts blog, like most Blizzard tool tips, needs to be read completely and fully to understand what was said. Having two lvl 80 priests, one on each faction so I can see the whole story, the thing I miss the most is seeing the actual boss fight unfold.
As far as the arguments regarding who does what best...who cares. The underlying intent for what Blizzard has been changing is creating diversity so people can just enjoy the game the way they want too. You want to heal? heal. You want to Dps? pewpew away. You want to have ability to turn into a dog? Go for it. You're not a dog person? Oh, sorry, here be a bear, or a cat, or a TREE for that matter...
Personalization is more prevalent now then getting the best class spec of the moment and figuring out how to get the ilvl400 item that everyone else has. You want to have the high score in a pinball game....go play the xbox. Otherwise, see the story unfold and interact with a world and people that are there to do the same with you.
