Well, I think part of the problem might be that it's something that's been discussed over and over and over and over again on these forums. There has been no official word from Blizzard when this is going to be released besides End of 2004... and even that may be pushed back a little.
While I agree with this point, release is likely two months away. The closer we get the more anticipation will build. I personally can't wait. It's like a kid who knows they will soon be at Disneyland.
"Are we there yet?" "Are we there yet?" "Are we there yet?"
Yes, it's annoying, but it's the question on 95% of the people's minds.
As far as the game, I feel certain it will be released before Christmas. I wouldn't be amazed if it actually came out on the tentative date of Nov. 15th that some sites like E.B. list. Yes, it is tentative at best, but yet possible.
As far as talents not being in for 2 classes, so what? There is still plenty of time. Talents are meant as a way to differentiate you character from others of the same class. Talents do not define the class and are minor compared to all the other spells and/or abilities of the classes.
High-end content is still being added. If the game released tomorrow, Blizzard would still have time before any reasonable number of people would be able to get to it. For testing, they already said there would be a live test server.
The PvP rewards system is possibly even linked in part to the Hero class or becoming a Hero. We may see the entire system laid out during beta, and we may only see a part of the system implemented during beta. Either way though, it will the a system that enhances your character, not defines it. I think that because of this it shouldn't take a great deal of time to test out to see if it is fulfilling its purpose.
That's just my take on the subjects, but I can't see myself being terrible off the mark on any of them. As the game stands it is at least 90% finished.
I'd challenge you to a battle of witts, but I don't fight unarmed opponents.
