Podcast Topic – 10s vs. 25s

Each week on Matticast we will be featuring a topic driven by our audience. You can submit your comments on this post, or e-mail us with your thoughts. You can even send us an audio clip (mp3 format please). This is your chance to have your say on what we discuss on World of Matticus. Also don’t forget, if you have general questions you’d like answered on the show, you can send them our way. Remember we record on Sunday nights, so get your thoughts in before then!

We’ve spent a lot of time talking about the unique challenges each size raid has. What are your opinions? What pro/cons does each have when it comes to raiding, recruiting, organizing, loot, attendance, etc? Also, are they really of equal difficulty in Cataclysm, or does Blizzard still have a ways to go to balance them? Is there a bigger discrepancy in heroics? We are leaving this one pretty open. We want to see how many different things the choice between the two is effecting for everyone and organize the discussion around those. So whether it is just letting us know your preference or some deep spreadsheet-laden analysis let us know what you think!

There has been a lot of debate over the usefulness of Resto Shamans and Resto Druids in raiding since Paragon started leaving one or both of the classes out of their world firsts. While we think the general consensus is this shouldn’t start a trend, it does raise questions. What are you concerns with both healing specs? Do you think these issues have been addressed in patch 4.0.6. What specific challenges are you having with either class, either as a raid leader or a player of that class? What about the nerfs to the other healing classes, paladins in particular? Are these going to be effective in balancing the healing classes?
