Legion You MESSED UP MY ...
I recently subscribed to "Taliesin & Evitel Do Games" on youtube. The video that started it all was Taliesin's video "5 Things We'll Miss About Warlords when Legion Comes."
This got me thinking about things that I already miss from prior to 7.0. So far, my biggest complaint is the disappearance of the dual-spec option.
Excuses like "Sorry I can't play a healer, I only have DPS and Tank build".
No longer, can I queue up with my druid for dps, and hope that I'll get to play DPS through the entire dungeon/lfr. Now, if the tank or healer drops, there's a chance that everyone will look to the hybrids to help finish the dungeon. I am not sure I can handle the pressure. Even my priest is considering sitting in the stables so that she doesn't have to heal?! Ok, Discipline looks fun, maybe it won't be so bad.
Alternate PVP Builds
Speaking of my Disc Priest, I had a lot of fun playing PVP one day a week, then going over to raid healing on alternate days. To do this really effectively, I would have two disc healing specs, but would alternate my talent builds. This way, I could safely have PVP oriented AOE fears on my spell bars or aoe-healing all based on if I was 'tagged for pvp'.
F-Ugly Gear CombosI can't tell if this is just a plain ugly transmog or so-ugly-it-actually-works transmog (on my warrior). pic.twitter.com/cnCFo4fKGD— Poneria / Megan O (@_poneria) October 26, 2014
Leveling up through the quest zones, it's inevitable that one's toon will wear a mis-mash of new-expansion and last expansion gear. This lent to some pretty ugly combinations of gear. Now that my warlock is 90% completed with Fabulous achievement (I only need 20 items?), my priest no longer needs to wear odd helms while leveling up. One can at the very least xmog over that gimp mask.
I had a much longer list of indirect hits to normal game play, but darn if my RL work hasn't sucked those completely out of my brain. If I remember, I'll come back and update this post.
