Blizzard has been shitting on this class for a longass time. With the pruning, the shitty class fantasy nonsense, and the horrid rotation have made the class as whole suffered.
Yet ppl keep assuming the devs are gonna listen to the community and make severe QoL changes to the class during the middle of an xpac. If you think they are listening or will.... then you're kidding yourself, 1000+ constructive posts were given to the devs during alpha and beta what makes you think they will listen to yours all of a sudden?
They will offer band aid fixes and nothing more, there's too much wrong with the class right now. The talents choices are bad, rotation is not engaging, 1.5 gcd, bad pet AI and of course the pruning. Damage is not the issue because that can be solved with a simple tweak, but the other issues I pointed out are the main culprits of why the class is bad.
Like I said ppl should stop expecting severe changes to the class during the xpac, Blizzard has shown that they either
A. Don't care
This also raises a bigger concern because will they even bother to fix the class at all next xpac.
