I’m not musing over game mechanics or any of those changes. I’ll become interested in those once, you know, Cata is closer and it’s more concrete and I feel like getting all wound up about something. No, I’m pondering two things and two things only:
1) Who will be my main THIS expansion? Or at least, who will start off as my main?
2) How will they follow pattern and at some point get me playing my holy paladin AGAIN?
Vanilla: Holy paladin
BC: BM hunter! Which then turned into…BM hunter and holy pally raiding about the same amount in different guilds! Which then turned into only the pally, but prot! But then we had too many tanks so holy pally again!
Wrath: Holy pally! Which turn turned into…disc priest!
So far I am avoiding the Holy Paladin Trap, but I’m sure it will be sprung upon me anew at some point. IT ALWAYS IS.
I actually have no idea who I’ll level first (default main indicator) in Cata. It depends on several factors, including who quits the game at that point and what the guild is left with. I love my hunter and my priest equally–this may or may not be the case when Cata changes come around. Tankadin is also not entirely off the table.
How many of you plan on using the expansion to shake up mains? Or are you like Cranky Tank, playing the same class and spec since the dawn of time?
Tomorrow: Twilight Sparkle Party strat! Or well, that’s the plan, anyway.
