What type of content do you focus on? [PvE/PvP/Both]
If PvE, what type of PvE? [Heroics/Raids/Other]
Raiding mostly. 5-mans to gear up/when new ones are released (which is too rarely, since I do enjoy the 5-man model).
What are your biggest quality-of-life issues? For instance, no longer requiring ammo could be considered a quality-of-life improvement for hunters.
Reagents. At least the reagents that only stacks to 20. It's either a ton of bag space or visit the reagent vendor with annoying regularity.
What makes playing your class more fun?
Having a good ammount of abilities not directly related to dealing damage. Blink/slow/freezes/etc. The other classes I play feel gimped in that department and hence slightly dull. All 3 specs also have a fairly different feel.
What makes playing your class less fun?
Dunno, really. It's a pretty fun and versatile class
How do you feel about your “rotation”? (Rotation is the accepted order in which abilities are used to maximum efficiency.)
Fire: Feels robotic and simple. Could use some actual decision making apart from combustion every 2 minutes. Also feels too random and is deadly dull when hot streak doesn't proc for half a minute or even more. The AoE rotation could be fun but in reality is too RNG dependant.
Frost: Fun rotation, EXCEPT having to use a targeting circle in the middle of your single target rotation feels like coitus interuptus. The assist stance for the pet seems quite bad too.
Arcane: Unique and fairly fun rotation, always something left to do to get some more DPS out of it. Decision based. The problem is how, with higher mana regen, the burn phase gets too long, and you can cast too many ABs before having to think about whether to break stack or not etc. I found it more fun when I was in 350something gear than I do now. This is a problem, and it feels like next tier, the burn phase will be unbearably long, and I'll be able to cast far too many ABs before having to start thinking about breaking stacks. Could possibly use something from the tree itself that procs something that effects intellect/mana regen temporarily. Right now you could theoretically just have power torrent to react too, which would feel like a bit... too little.
The essential idea is awesome, the mastery idea is awesome. Mana scaling is leading to problems.
What’s on your wish list for your class?
Frost: Pet freze being usable on a target so I can keybind it and not have to interupt the flow of the rotation to use it. Better pet AI in general.
Fire: The rotation less automatic. But fire fans seem to like it that way, and I don't like fire anyway, so who am I to complain?
Arcane: Mana scaling to be addressed; Burst phase shouldn't last beyond the duration of AP ideally andduring conserve you should be looking at breaking stacks earlier than what is starting to happen now (at least with my gear level). Mana shield being mana positive due to talents for arcane would be interesting. As long as Arcane remains mana-based and not whack-a-mole based, I am happy.
What spells do you use the least?
Can't think of any spell that isn't used for some spec...
