If they make healing like it was in early Cataclysm (similar to Vanilla/TBC where you needed to employ a basic thought process) they're onto a winner. They managed to completely nullify the disaster that was thoughtless WOTLK spam and it really split the good healers from the bad. Hopefully in WoD they can make that last more than a single tier like it did in Cata, though.

Been doing some fishing on the beta.

Seems that your skill (including bauble bonuses, gear etc) will directly influence your efficency at catching fish:

Low skill level - small fish , stack of 20
Average skill level - normal size, stack of 10
High skill level - humongous size, stack of 5

You catch and convert a stack into a cookable 'fillet' product which you can then use to level up your cooking and produce food, drink and buff food. Fishing is also regularly producing fishing bonus items like baubles, 'species attractants' to catch specific kinds of fish, and the usual social amusement items.

Interestingly cooking food and the act of fishing pulled up the skills and recipes, rather than learning them from a trainer.

Wah wah wah, I don't like one of my three dps specs. At least you have options, unlike the poor buggers playing ret paladins (hence I've rerolled another class. Paladins are always gonna suck).

I am a little surprised that Blizzard don't seem all that phased by the significant differences in simulated DPS top and bottom. "Oh we never do a patchwerk style fight so it doesn't matter". There's lots of hunters crying that they're no longer viable - honestly I can't see how that would last for long.

Perhaps they're balanced around the L100 talents or something and it magically makes them OK again. Either way, it's only a month between 6.0 and Warlords, so it's probably not going to make that much difference.

Nope.

Marks is middle tier come 100, BM/SV is again, slightly above a prot warrior.

The actual fuck.

Either way, good players will still outperform bad players in most situations, regardless of class. I've never been much for swapping to FOTM classes - things change so quickly.

Thats just it. I don't enjoy marks at all. It is literally almost as bad as a MoP Ret Pally.

I was a warrior well before a hunter.

This is true, that largely why i was successful as a hunter. But a big part of my enjoyment from the game is competing with others in a raid. Others does not include healer's and tanks incidental dps

I'm glad you added that stipulation. It annoys me when people are so fiercely competitive over HPS and tank DPS, often at the expense of performing their primary role well. I'm super glad that they're changing vengeance to nip a lot of that in the bud.

I've been a paladin since Vanilla. I healed until early wrath then switched to tank and have been one ever since - we haven't always been the best tanks but I've made it work for me. My rant at the moment is nobody needs tanks - with so many guilds going 10 heroic -> 20 mythic, everybody already has their tanks all set.
