I Still Already Love WOD but…..
Truth be told, this new xpac can’t come out fast enough. So I don’t have a lot of real “disappointments” in the announcements, so these may be a bit nit-picky.
Yes, I said this is a nice feature in my last post, but some of it just doesn’t make sense. Spirit is going to remain a secondary stat, which means it won’t change when we change specs. I don’t know about you, but if I see a DK, Rogue or Warrior running around with spirit on their gear, I’m going to die a little inside. We won’t be able to reforge anymore. This is going to have to be discussed among many a guild leadership when figuring out their WOD loot distribution. If it has spirit on it, it’s healer gear. Period. There is no more hit rating so all you shadow priests, elemental shammies and boomkins can go bugger off. So spirit gear is healer gear. But not all gear will have spirit on it. Does that mean healers are automatically ineligible for it? That’s a loot discussion for another day, but I’m not exactly looking forward to that discussion.
Healers may still want to carry a completely different set of gear for their offspec, though. That spirit is going to do diddley squat for my kitty spec. And it’s just going to sit there on my gear. So it doesn’t exactly solve many of the bag space issues as it should, if we’re min/maxing our offspecs.
Which brings me to….
The Ethereal reforgers are packing up and leaving town, leaving us with what we got. Make spirit a primary stat, and I’ll stop bitching. Reforging is a pain in the ass, so I’m not sad to see it go. But if I use my kitty offspec and have to deal with stats of: stamina, agility, spirit on my gear, I’m going to twitch.
This is nice. But I wish they would make Guild Garrisons. Then each guild member could have their own “player housing” within the Guild Garrison, and share the resources. With end game raiding not requiring players to be in guilds, this would be a big motivator in joining a guild. There is SO much potential with a Guild garrison.
No new Race/Class
We really don’t need a new race or class, but it’s always something new to look forward to. But please, no naga race. Just, no.
It’s really hard to be disappointed in anything that I don’t have a lot of information on yet, and despite these points, I really can’t wait for WOD. I mean, REALLY. CAN’T. WAIT.
