[b]"[/b][b]Greg Street:[/b] Just a few off top of my head: The big 3 we were trying to hit were lowering the overall power and maybe representation of say, Frost Mage, Arms Warrior for sure, Shadow Priest and Hunter a little bit -- and on the low end we felt like Disc Priest had vanished from high end PvP which was a real shame from where they'd been before. We also had the new class the monk that just wasn't represented very well as either damage dealer or a healer. So those were the main goals. And then we had a lot of systems level stuff where we increased the healing of the damage dealers that also had a healing spec and tried to look at some of the things that we always try to look at : diminishing returns, and we also focused a lot on silences."

Translation: nerf warriors, buff disc priests, j/k mages and hunters are fine, buff the shit out of monks cuz no one plays them they must be bad, and buff Dks cuz hero class remember?

Good interview except the most important question is missing: "What did you eat today?"

Most unimportant question in the world.

New guy seems to have the right ideas, but it remains to be seen if he can actually get his ideas out into the field.

Blizzard makes changes VERY slowly.

Bye again! This game isn't fun when you don't know anyone else that still plays.

So far they've made changes rather quick, even hot fixing certain classes. It's more that they want to be 100% sure that something is wrong before they change something, if you as a player notices a class balance problem you'll know it's imbalanced instantly, as a Dev you can't just come in with your opinion that something is wrong and want it changed, you'll need something to back it up and a solution to the problem before you can suggest a change.

Surely you can say that 1 month or so to nerf TfB and Frost Bomb was to long, but really, think back to earlier expansions it beats having to wait 3 - 4 months for a patch..

I love these interviews, never anything solid information, only pr bla bla. But no worry, <X,Y,Z> is on their todo list and they really want to make <A,B,C>, just wait for it and pay the monthly fee.

What do humans know of our pain? We have sung songs of lament since before your ancestors crawled on their bellies from the sea.

The only facepalm is you believing that is why people play the game. People like to compete against other people.
