I wear plate and use blades - I am mostly non casting except for buffs and heals. From what I've seen so far, this patch has killed my spec. My - previously good - resistances are shot to blazes and also, suddenly 95% of mobs in sieges are ranged. Now, I am quite happy to chase down a few mages and archers, but with engineers now being ranged, each small camp is an utter shambles for my spec. I shall be saying 'goodbye' to sieges for now until some sanity returns. It's not as if I could kill the bosses anyway, but now I can't do the catapults. I am not interested in a game that makes me respec every release, I could do WOW if I wanted that. Chris, if you just want everyone to kite mobs, well done. You are going the right way about it. From my perspective, it's utter b*llocks.
