If you have been reading the blog for a while you know that I have been playing my main toon, a priest, since Cataclysm.
Let’s talk boys and girls. Yes, about your main toon. Is it time to change? If so, what class? Honestly, I have no idea. I know that I have a lofty goal to have all classes and races to max by the end of the expansion. That may have been a mistake.
A goal is a goal though and I fully intend to stick to it. It is weird place to be in. Basically, at this point I am with out a main at the moment and dont know what I want to level next.
Change can be good. I know I can figure this out.
I dont know when the whole item level idea switched again or bringing just the item level instead of the person actually playing a class they enjoy.
It seems like with Azurite gear and the item squish Blizzard made a mistake. A huge one. I am sure not the only one who has felt his way and it was pointed out in the last Q&A with Ion. Not only are we as players not getting the stats we need but the stats are so janky that I cant seem to play a priest and even be close to as strong as I feel like my character should be. Priest need haste for shadow and attaining it is a little lack luster.
I do not know if playing the class I have come to enjoy is even worth the trouble anymore due to it. All that players seem to be looking for is the one number that could help them get through a heroic 5 man instance, item level.
I know I sound like I am complaining but I should not feel like when I am out in the world like I can only ever pull one mob and die three out of the five times because my gear does not have the correct amount of Critical Strike and haste to keep my head above water. I am not asking them to pass out gear like they did with last expansion or any other time but I know this does not feel very good now. I honestly dont think that I will be strong enough as a shadow priest this raid tier at all because of the haste situation. I also know that I can not just wait around to let my character collect dust either.
I know I can fix it. It will just take me a long time. It just does not feel very good. It is not motivating me enough to even want to try as much as I did previously. I will try though. Azurite gear is starting to feel like the legendary’s from last expansion. Weather to a different character or to another game entirely?
I hate feeling this way about a game that I have played for a long time. I know what Blizzard was trying to do as unsuccessful as it seems at the current moment. There is not a lot we can do about it either. Weather Blizzard or us as players. I know I sound overly critical and it is intended to be that way because I know Blizzard can and has done better then this.
I just have to suck it up and make the most of it or move on. I, currently, am going to continue to at least try for now.
