I think the splitting in half makes it a lot more interesting personally
eww didnt like it. the extra ooze that reached yorsage usually just meant extra raid dmg to heal. very uninteresting and boring to me..
and i know im a minority,..i have a very unique perspective from most peps. my taste are very diffrent from most people, this is an opinion coming from someone that thought firelands was well made and fun minus the heroic pacing was bad , i think DS got the heroic pacing at least right.
teir 13 was boring rehashed content and reused charecter models mostly,.. even the setting is reused content,.. just very lazy and boring,.. gunship is a fight that i liked, but the boss is a stupid tauren i never heared of,.. and i swear how many times can blizz use the same voice acting for its bosses where the boss says "run away little girl, run away"?
As far as barriers for class/spec, the only thing that seemed annoying so far was working out a rotation for soaking Hour of Twilight on Heroic Ultraxion. I'm not sure our raid makeup will support 15 soakers.
well im sure your already aware of most the dps classes that have 3min or less abilities to survive the hour of twilight so ill go over some of the less used abilities and classes for this.
cat type druids using survival instincts + barkskin
holy pallies can bubble one
holy priest with guardian angel
all pallies can give hand of sac to classes with weaker type of cool downs
disc priest can pain suppress restro druid with barkskin, enh shaymen with shamastic rage, or holy pally with divine protection,.. disc priest can also throw in power word barrier for these classes on an earlier hour of twilight and have it ready again on the hard part.
warrior equip shield and shield wall macro+rallying cry for good measure.. and quickly go back to dps weaps after the hour of twilight
worse two, but work
all shaymen can die and pop back up for the last hour of twilight
warlocks can soulstone and use up some brezes for the last hour of twilight
* these guys that are dying and coming back also get a 2nd heroism, and have a 3rd pot for that heroism as well
