Tonight talk of the patch came up in guild chat. Nothing too serious, but someone complaining about the new badge system and how people will again be able to run heroics and get gear that is on par or just one set behind those who are raiding. They were upset over “free epics”.
Okay, so maybe it’s just me, but I don’t care what kind of epics are at the end of the rainbow, doing the same dungeons over and over and over on 3+ level 80s so they can all get gear…boo. So I don’t do it. Maybe others do, but it seems like lots of work to me. I tried to propose to this person that the patch has more to offer than just new gear, and isn’t the experience of raiding the real reason to go and the loot is just a special side effect?
They they complained that yes, the patch has more than gear, it has nerfs too. I think I was talking to Mr. Negativity. I then joked that if you play a non-favored class and especially a non-favored spec, you’ll always get buffs in the patches *cough cough* frost mages and demonology warlocks. Now I’m not saying play a class or spec that you don’t like so that you always get buffs. That’s not why I picked frost mage, I just liked playing it better – though I’m really enjoying fire since the dual spec.
Patches are always dicey like that, though I can’t think of a patch where I was upset about it. Well except when they nerfed penance. But mostly I’ve been excited about the patches because there’s new content, new loot, new talents, new everything! Even a nerf isn’t always bad, I sometimes want to say hey DKs, it’s not that you’re so awesome at DK, it’s that they made them too powerful over the other classes, so stop crying that you’re being put on par with the others. He he.
I’m still looking forward to the next patch, and to expansions. Though there’s a lot more to do yet! Speaking of which, I’ll never get Rossini to 79 by typing here instead of playing!
