    Cataclysm patch turned DK into a priority-based class with quite a few buttons to hit. Warlocks and Hunters can also be complicated depending on how good you wanna be and what build you want

    All I can say is WoW has never been better, despite some minor issues. Can't wait for midnight!

    Just installed the free 10-day trial.

    Have not played WoW in a long time and already I am extremely impressed with the changes they have made to the game. Literally everything has changed, the UI is different, the graphics are a bazillion times better than they used to be. The water now actually has ripples and looks pretty decent for an MMO (sure its not AoC stadards but its still a big improvement).

    The new races and classes are insane... who ever thought you would be able to be a "human hunter" the thought crossed my mind so many times and now they have included it and many more.

    The lower end missions are a lot easier so for beginners it is not so daunting anymore.

    Overall I am very pleased with the effort they have made to keep people playing and to get more people involved in the experience as well.

    OH yeah and the ability to set your own frame rate cap is a genius idea!! I want every PC game to have this feature. It allows you to slap on a much eye candy as your PC can handle and not have the fps go below 30fps, then just cap the max frame rate to 30 and turn on vsync and triple buffering and it looks and works awesome! Why on earth other PC devs have never implemented this (as far as I know) is beyond me!

    Are people sure DX11 was implemented?

    I know a lot of people mentioned it but I wasn't sure if it was actually put in. As far as I know it was mainly water updates with the latest big patch.

    They've changed how things look to try bring original content up with the rest, but the original stuff still pales in comparison to Outland and Northrend. Although it's getting better.

    They have SERIOUSLY sped up leveling too, which is nice. I have a 50 Shaman now and only 26hrs /played

    Depends what server you're on too.

    I'm the Oceania servers obviously.
    Ahh, might have a look at that option later, see if there's much of a difference.

    Yep, I solo everything.

    It's only at the end game you need to start grouping in RAIDS for the bigger stuff.

    You can hit max level solo, as well as grind/farm. But to get gear you have to party/raid.

    I actually really like WoW.... I'm scared to reactivate my account and try the expansion because I know I'll get hooked and I'm just too busy with university, work, and the army. Blarg!

    That's why I quit. A whole month just disappeared in front of my eyes, and it felt like a day.

    most likely you have a quest item in your inventory you can use to heal. and paladins can use swords.

    about dx11 my game is running in dx11 mode cause i made a change in config files hehe boosted my fps a bit.
