Wotlk. New talents. Omg. Etc.
There has been a lot of coverage of the mage changes in WotLK, and as exciting as they are, they are well documented and discussed elsewhere. I've done plenty of reading on the subject and I'm sure my audience has too.. haven't you!
Anyway last night I was discussing the expansion with some guildies as we were raiding BT, and I heard some interesting things from my warlock friends!
To a lock, they were all considering ditching their warlock in the expansion and instead playing their mage / hunter / healer / death knight.
I was a bit shocked, I have to say. People are talking about ditching their WARLOCK to play their MAGE.
Well wouldn't that be a nice change?
Are warlocks really getting nerfed that badly? I must admit I'm not nearly as up to date on warlock changes as I am on the mage ones, for obvious reasons...
On the other hand, plenty of mages out there are ready to shelve their mage semi-permanently until they are"fixed" at some later date. They hope.
I know a lot of us would keep playing our mages regardless of how badly they suffer at the hands of the nerf stick, simply because we love mages. Other altoholic types have a stable full of level capped toons and they are going to decide later which they will make their main.
Sometimes I envy them, mostly when im fighting druids in arena though. I would love a druid to pvp with, gather herbs and skin stuff.... Not so much that im willing to play one from level 1 - 80 though, that's for sure.
So is anyone else planning to ditch their main in favor of another class for WotLK?
Personally I expect to level my death knight for farming and crafting purposes only... Maybe!
