    Default Omg alpha changes /rage

    I'm just kidding they are clerly testing things out and still need to adjust before the end of the month release. I am overly thrilled that they finally made the MM a legit DPS soul now. Only thing I don't like is the 5th soul. Yeah its great because yadda yadda yadda, but it just trivializes the whole soul system. In the end its just one less choice you have to make and one step closer to ultra easy mode. I would rather see a template system that allows you to save builds for quick switch but still limit to only 4 you can hot swap.

    It's not a damage meters fault you can't hit a certain dps and others similar to you can, it's the fault of your bad gear, bad spec, or bad rotation. So stop getting mad at the meters and invest some time into not being bad.

    What i meant by template was you can save a build and have access to them at a trainer. But you can only equip 4 at a time.

    Yes i understand many classes have many roles. Last time i checked you have more than one of each calling in a raid. I just think it wil water things down too much. Plus how often to you raid or PVP with out stopping somewhere with a trainer first. The template system would allow you to keep the builds with out the hassle of having to redo points and hot bars. At the same time the game is handed on a silver platter more than it is.

    This would be quite nice. But guess 5th role is the easy way out.
    I am actually really glad they are adding 5th. Currently using : 5men heal spec, raid heal spec, pvp heal spec, 5 men dps. Wtb solo farming spec and maybe tanking spec

    Playing with different souls is what makes it fun, having that extra slot just means you can mess around with one while keeping some other basic ones. To me there's no difference whether you'd be able to save a spec and only keep 4 at a time or just be able to carry around 5 at a time... just that the former costs money. In the end the result is the same except for one you have to go back to a trainer... and it means people have an easier time testing things while keeping their solid choices.

    I really like 5th role. I will be able to finally have 2 tanking roles, ranged dps, melee dps and solo build.

    But I agree that some kind of template system which would save your bars and everything would be nice too and even better in the long run.

    It is being reported on many of the class threads. No official notes have been release as i assume these are just preliminary changes.

    wow 5th role is 100 plat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!! screw that lol. i refuse to buy the epic mount cause imo 20% speed is not worth 135plat (since i never run anywhere out of stealth).
