I just finished doing a partial Black Temple clear on my Priest. I decided to swap Priest specs for the night and try my hand at full Discipline. I really like it a lot. Would I switch to it full time at 80? ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s going to depend on the healing corps we have then. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m grown comfortable between deep Discipline and deep Holy specs that I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t foresee it being any trouble at all. I think every healing Priest should take the time now where it doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t really matter to try out both sides of the coin and become fluent with both types of specs.
Yes, it really doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t matter.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m being outhealed by Retribution Paladins and Healing Stream totems. But that doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t bother me at all one bit. The game has fundamentally changed and raid instance difficulty has been toned down a lot to the dismay of some and the delight of others.
Karazhan now takes an average of 1 hour.
ZulÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Aman bear runs can be done with 17 minutes left remaining on the clock.
Black Temple? Illidan down within 2 hours.
And thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a good thing.
But donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t take the current game in stride. DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t assume that things will be this easy at level 80, because itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not going to be. You get yourselves new bosses, new mechanics, and new challenges to toy with. Relax now while you can and have some fun. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s back to work when you ding 80. Allow yourself to get complacent for a while, but keep it in the back of your mind that things will only get harder from here on out.
Some guildÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s are pissed off because all that they worked hard for means nothing. Some guildÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s are happy (and back together) because they were able to get over the hump that stopped them from raiding in the first place. My guild was able to take down Kalecgos and Brutallus for the first time this week. We still have some time remaining in order to bring down the rest of Sunwell. I know IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be working hard to get that KilÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Jaden achievement (IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m up to 2175 points).
The clock is ticking. Now is the time to hurry and explore the game. Visit the bosses that you thought youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve never seen. Raiding guilds should trial players for the time being. Swap players around and bring in alts.
It will get harder. DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t take it for granted.
