I was healing with add-ons then in almost exactly the same way.
Except then I used 1 healing spell (maybe 2) now I use 5-6 healing spells and 2-4 cooldowns.
Sorry you really do not have a clue what you are talking about.

For instance, the rotation of feral dps IS easier now than it was in Cataclysm. This is an objective conclusion.
You can't get away with your so-called "view" (it isnt a 'view' properly so called at all, since it aint based on anything) by labelling objective facts as others' 'opinions'. I m sorry, you have to face the facts.
Well, I agree to a certain extend, but it all comes down to what class you play. For example, Feral Druid DPS in Cata was just insanely complicated and not as rewarding as it should be, where as Fury Warrior has always been pretty easy, and still is. The moment I begin to think it becomes a little too complicated is when you get additional resources, like Balance Druids having the Sun/Moon meter. Things can also get too simple, as people have pointed out during Vanilla ranged DPS often just spammed one attack, it's very common to see Frostbolts everywhere in Vanilla raid videos (until AQ40 where Fireball replaced Frostbolt). Overall I don't think that it's too much of a problem, and boss encounter-wise it benefits raiding a lot, it sure is more fun actually having to do stuff other than walk out of the fire Molten Core-style.
Yet Another Sandmoth Thread.jpeg
Seriously, he opens one every second day. I don't mean this as hyperbole; look at his threads started. He's started 243 damn threads. And they're all as vacuous as this one.
If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.
I'd rather have the old feral pvp back. No CC other than roots, just mobility and shifting and damage. Every single spec doesn't have to have one of each type of ability. Healing for DKs, rogues and warriors? To hell with that new crap.
"Why make trillions when we could make... billions??"
I will agree. I remember only using really 1 action bar for important stuff that i needed. now im up to 3 action bars. More than half the abilities we dont even need. So I will agree with you on that. And the only reason why WoW is losing subs is because its in the middle of an expansion now, people grow old of the same stuff all the time and take breaks, etc.
Back in WotLK I used to roll a Hunter, as a endgame marksman Hunter my rotation consisted of 3 abilities, steady shot, aimed shot and chimera shot. Yet this was the expansion I enjoyed the most, today I got hundreds of balls in the air no matter what class I play (unless I play arcane Mage of course). This is actually what I miss, worrying more about the next wave of adds during a boss encounter than execututing a rotation perfectly...
Well its just me, keep the discussion up guys
No, I don't think the abilites themselves are too complicated. I'll give you that cata sub rogue wasn't for anyone (certainly not me, I played rogue and assa was my love <3). On the other hand, I feel the boss mechanics might've gotten out of hand, as there's a shitton to look out for now - I think. Haven''t done any real MoP raiding, but I was fairly active in Cata and there's much stuff going on, but you do adapt after a while, so really, not really a big problem.
I kinda agree with you, In cata I played an Ele shaman, which had a dead easy rotation, and it was great fun. Having an easy rotation means you can concentrate on what is happening around you, I find that when playing a more complex class I feel like I missed the whole fight whilst getting my rotation right.
dungeon fights are a bit more complex now days. i don't even do dungeons anymore because every boss is just a gigantic clusterfuck of things going on constantly, and i really hate it. they're also trying to bring that out into the world, and make dailies tougher, so they're pretty much driving me away from the game entirely.
We have threads saying the games to easy, its been dumbed down, it's too hard, it's too complex, it's for the lazy etc etc. I can't keep up, I mean really, which one is it! lol.
Personally I don't think it's became too complex, I do think there are alot of spells in my spellbook that are very situational, and tend to not get used in day to day playing of the game, but it's been over 8 years, alot more stuffs is gonna make things look overstuffed a tad.
If anything I think the games been streamlined alot more, barring the amount of spells we have. I don't think it's overly complex, nor is it dumbed down, I think it's in a decent place right now, and just needs a little fine tuning here and there.
I agree on the utility abilities. Every dps class has a way of healing themselves, and has an infinite amount of gap closers, speed increasers and CCs. But I wouldn't say rotations have become complex or anything alike. Most of them are quite straight forward actually :/
