Look, just saying.13 melee specs(3 rogue, 2 warrior, 2dk, ret pally, havoc dh, enhance sham, surv hunter, feral druid, windwalker monk), 6 healers pre evoker (resto sham/druid), holy pally/priest, disc, mistweaver), 6 tanks (al plate classes have at least one, guardian druid, brewmaster monk, vengence dh.). Range dps has two (formerly 3) whole classes designed around it, creating again, 13 pre evoker range classes (all mages, all warlocks, marks/beast hunters, shadow priest,balance druids, ele shamans). Literally they had PEAK balance before evoker. We could literally afford another tank spec. And warthion’s a punk he shouldnt be the example of peak black dragon. Look no further than his own father which took multiple dragon attcks, hundreds of us wailing on him, and at least 2 shots from the dragon soul to be finally put down. Literally cost the other aspects their power in order to be stopped. Tank. If the dragonflights are getting their aspect powers again, i surmise when one of the brothers gets crowned new earth warden, i pray we get a surprise by then. Because funny enough before dh was release, melee roles (tank and dps) were out numbered. And guess what? Its now 14 ranged, 7 healer, 6 tanks, 13 melee. Honestly shocked they give us a 5 spec dragon race (red for melee dps, black for tank, bronze more of a support/steroid healer, green for aoe or more dedicated heals, blue for ranged dps. They managed to split druids into 4 specs . 12 classes but 9 have 3 specs, 1 has 4 specs, and 2 only have 2 specs and they are the most recent ones. Given everything above again, feels like lazy design.
I like most things they change per expac but lets be real Blizzard has never known the word “balance” outside of the spec.Prime example is that specs on top of charts half the time. We didnt need a new healer, like we didnt need a new tank, nor did we really need more dps classes. Ff14 have less classes by a mile just but the combine dps tallies (20 classes in total for ff14, currently 27 dps specs in wow) like if you’re gonna bloat the game more just go for it. Honestly i keep hoping for the day they elect a job system like ff14 so i can switch class whenever. Would 110% reduce character bloat.
