Nov 18th 2011 9:31PM One thing that's minor but worth mentioning for people newish to the game, is that there was no dual spec back then. For single tank fights, I would have to put on my healy gear, and off heal, as prot. It was oh so much fun.
Nov 18th 2011 3:01PM I disagree. You can't think in terms of how things are now, you have to think in terms of the "fixed mana pool" future. Right now, as gear improves and mana pools increase dramatically, Arcane is silly hard to try to balance, to the point where most mages are arcane now, and a tier ago none were. In theory, it should be much easier to balance all 3 specs of mage now.
In MoP, as your gear improves, and you get more intellect and secondary stats, Arcane DPS should increase more linearly in regards to gear level, vs now where it is more exponential due to how mastery for them works in relation to the size of their mana pool.
What I worry about in this situation, is that you could literally have a "perfect" rotation for arcane with this. There will be X number of arcane blasts, mixed with Y number of arcane missles, and go into a regen phase after Z seconds, because your class will play like a swiss watch.
Nov 16th 2011 6:08PM IMO, it's not that Blizzard doesn't understand the problem, its that they are sick to death of people whining for a raid finder similar to the RDF. People asked, they're giving them exactly what they asked for. Shame on them for not understanding what they'd get with the player base.
Nov 16th 2011 5:58PM I didn't say it wouldn't work, I said I wouldn't recommend it. IMO 25s work better for casual guilds, assuming your GM and recruitment officer can keep your roster at the right level.
In a 10, you generally need to pay at least rudimentary concern for raid comp, in a 25man, you're pretty much guaranteed to be able to do what you need to do with who you get. (especially if several of you are alt-o-halics)
In a 25, whatever drops can generally be used by someone, which makes people generally happier than showing up to a raid and seeing stuff get repeatedly sharded.
Considering you're just hoping people show up, and generally later in the tier people get bored and stop showing up, if you plan on doing 25 and don't have enough people, you can break down into 2 10s or worst case a single 10. In my guild, on scheduled nights, there's ALWAYS a raid. Also, we can have a bench of people without people feeling they get sat out every other raid.
@Edymnion: My guild is exactly like that, and I'm sure we're not the only ones. I'm assuming that it's against the rules to post a link to our website or I'd link it. I'd suggest either trolling the wow recruitment forums or put up a post there stating what you want, and review the pages of guild spam you'll get.
