And to answer your last question - no, they don't give a shit and neither do we.
This is from a blue post in response to Shaman dps:
"Thanks for the post. A lot of tuning still has to be done, but it's safe to say your DPS is a lot lower than what should be expected. All DPS classes/specs after we are done tuning should yield a pretty similar DPS with similar gear/"min/max" speccing. It's going to take a bit of time until we reach that goal, though." link here
This is not a comment about Shamans, but rather the stated intention of making all dps classes/specs 'pretty similar dps'. I think we have been down this road before, but at what point does Bliz stop all this silliness and admit that the original design of this game was around class based, not spec based, differences?
I can't respec and become a healer yet I am expected to compete on a even footing in dps with a class that can - and hence has a lot more 'utility' (at very least for the individual playing it).
They have also stated they want to keep classes distinct - surely that meas in roles they play, not just different buttons pressed?
I said it earlier in this thread, but I feel these changes are very adhoc in nature. There really doesn't seem to be an over-arching plan or vision for what this game is meant to be like at lvl 80. It seems like they are going to work it out when everyone gets there.
Bliz, do you mind if I stop paying $15/month until you figure it out?
