Blue Posts - Class Feedback
Patch 4.3 is coming to PTRs "soon" and Blizzard is looking to gather feedback on all the classes! Not necessarily for Patch 4.3 but mostly for long term changes, most likely the expansion.

Here is the kind of feedback that is NOT helpful in this particular thread:


  • Concerns that your current damage, healing or tanking is not competitive. While this kind of feedback is often useful, it also is the kind of thing that can change from patch to patch, and so it isn’t as useful for long term vision changes.

  • Concerns that your feedback is being ignored or that we don’t take these kind of posts seriously, or otherwise posting anything that is off-topic or not in the spirit of this thread’s intent.

  • Requests for responses to your suggestions or feedback. The purpose of this thread is to get information to us, not the reverse.

We hope you take these threads seriously, as we’re going to be reading them very carefully. We ask that you take time to think and formulate a useful and objective reply, as this feedback could be used to alter your class in substantial ways.

We won’t be replying here addressing your concerns. This is purely for us to read your answers to the below questions.

Please copy the below questions into your reply and answer each one.


  • What type of content do you focus on? [PvE/PvP/Both]
  • If PvE, what type of PvE? [Heroics/Raids/Other]
  • If PvP, what type of PvP? [Arenas, BGs, Rated BGs]
  • What are your biggest quality-of-life issues? For instance, no longer requiring ammo could be considered a quality-of-life improvement for hunters.
  • What makes playing your class more fun?
  • What makes playing your class less fun?
  • How do you feel about your “rotation”? (Rotation is the accepted order in which abilities are used to maximum efficiency.)
  • What’s on your wish list for your class?
  • What spells do you use the least?

    Let Shaman's use two handed weapons and be able to tank. For the love of everything holy let them be able to tank. It can be done, it has been done, we need more tank options.

Not everyone fits into stereotypes. My undergraduate American literature teacher (a person with a Ph D) played WoW. Granted, she wasn't very good, but she still played!
    LOL a Texan, that explains it. The land of steers and....uhh... what was the other one?

    Texas Tech instructors wasting time raiding in the World of Warcraft and responding to "trolls". Not shocked at all.

    Unless im mistaken, in which case just correct me no need to flame me or something like that lol, The team who created wow and the current team are two different groups of peoples.

    Finally. Been waiting really long time before Blizzard starts to listen feedback. So here is my 2 cents. If you really want to IMPROVE your pos game. For the love of God remove all Blizzard PLAYERS from the servers. EU-Sporeggar server has more blizzard workers playing than actual players. if this preferred option is not possible INTRODUCE HEROIC SERVERS WHERE NO BLIZZARD WORKER is playing. Blizzard worker playing means here not just means random blizzard personnel spending 2 hours night in a random server but than actual worker who is being paid to play full time in servers. Like Deized Dajzd alliance side eu-spore

    Ive been pvping since pre bc and arenaing since bc non stop. Casting in pvp has become a nuisance. I play a healer and have been since pre bc, healing in cata pvp is so un-enjoyable no wonder people are leaving. Why play a healer when you can play a dps spam damage, easily stop heals and win. So many interrupts in the game now and thats not even the hard part. Say someone misses an interrupt there are so many cc spells now that they can just use one of those to stop a cast. Even with this sucky pvp going on there are some more frustrating things like queue times and how you fight the same team over and over. Other than all this game imbalances are just too much to handle. my friends and I are all glad ranged players and we have noticed that nowadays the damage difference between a 2k player and a 2700 player is no different. Its so easy to do damage now. Too hard to heal and just not rewarding to play.

    No you're right, but they've got all the data they need. They don't need to 'take it back' to an earlier time, but they do need to build on what made the game great. They didn't do that with Cata, they tried to breath new life into the game, to bring back vets and attract new customers, and they failed miserably. There was the usual "Expansion spike" but in no time flat that wore off, and they began to bleed out subs. Wow still has a ton of subs, but I would still consider this expansion a failure, at least in terms of WoW's success.

    Oh I completely agree with you, I was so excited for it and everything and to be honest I havent logged in but once in the last.. week or two. It was just reduced to doing dailies everyday and running the same exact dungeons i've ran 200 times. Their is just... nothing to do end game outside of raiding and im not so much into raiding. this expansion blows in my opinion. I just wish they actually took what their customers said and used that to better the game, vs saying "we want feedback" and never actually listening to it.

    i would like to see frost mages be able to have a viable raiding spec. i am a arcane/fire mage for my 10 man group but enjoy playing frost. i enjoy raiding more than pvp and it seems that frost spec is mainly suited for pvp. so i would ask blizzard to give me the opportunity to play my favorite spec while doing what i enjoy most about the game. because of having to have arcane and fire for raiding i cant even get frost as a spec without leveing another mage. even if it is claimed that frost is a viable pve/raid spec i challenge anyone to show me one frost mage that raids and isnt immediately dismissed from the raid group. so blizzard i implore you please give me the 2 things i enjoy playing the most so that i may play the game as i choose.

    i play a enhancement shaman and im starting firelands. play pve always have, but since cata and even in wrath i feel that enhance has lost its touch, like it had in vanila and bc, they have also lost most of the reason they were in raids to begin with totems arent all that great due to most already having other spells that replace them, bloodlust has been given to mages and that was mostly the reason we were brought to raids was that. also having the ability to use two-handed weapons would great to have again, like frost death knights have

    LOL and you just love that word omnipresence. You should write an entire post using only that word.

    People like you are the ones that get laughed at, when you can't be playing WoW for whatever reason, here you are on websites and discussion forums talking about it. Talk about consumed, man.

    And then you go on explanation to a total stranger trying to convince them that you have friends "IRL". Sure ya do, man.

    Just keep on living out your fantasy here, that you have friends, that you aren't addicted to WoW, and that you're not in your mommy's basement.
    LOL I almost, ALMOST was gonna post you were gonna say "did I hit a nerve" I didn't cause I thought you had the ability to actually think outside the box. If you hit a nerve, I'll be honest and say you did, but you didn't. You saying "awful defense" = "I can't figure out how to counter what he just said." You called me a stereotypical guy who lives in his basement in his parents house and proved you wrong. Don't give there is "nothing to counter" statement, everyone knows you called me that and going by what I said about myself, I can't that "basement" guy. Basement guy doesn't go out and make in real friends lol. I guess again that concept passed over your head and the fact I said I had real life friends flew over your head as now you're making claims that my real life friends are in a video game. You know I can prove you wrong any time I want, but I won't. You're not worth it cause you are a troll. Funny thing is, I am not the only one who thinks that lol. As for omnipresence, I choose the word that best describes the situation. It isn't everyday that I get to use that word that is for sure, but I am sure as hell not gonna type "your ability to look at the lives of many at the same time." Just be happy I expanded your vocabulary by one word. With that said Mr. Troll, please oh please visit Texas (I don't live in Texas) and share your wonderful view of that state and its people, you would make me a happy man. I am done with you and your horrible attempts to of trying to read into my life and lives of 1000s especially since you are terribly failing at it (lol time consumed...I don't even have 200 posts and my account on here is barely 2 years old). Please respond to this if you want (I won't respond back for obvious reasons lol), give the good people on here a laugh .
