Loot Specialization Coming With Patch 5.3
Being a tank in the World of Warcraft, Blizzard's recent news that patch 5.3 will add an option where players can "choose to receive loot for a specialization that's different from their current class role" when running LFR or while questing, is some of the best news I’ve heard in a long time.
When I first started playing WoW – back at the start of The Burning Crusade – I had endless amounts of time to devote to my characters, from raiding to farming rep and running dungeons with my guild. Nowadays I have a full-time job, a fiancé and a YouTube channel to maintain. With what little time I have left, I manage to raid two nights per week with my guild, grind a few dailies here and there and run LFR (if I'm lucky!).
As any raider can understand, the bulk of my game-time is spent playing my tank, gearing my tank, gaining rep with my tank, and so on; nobody wants to be that person who holds back his/her guild’s progression, am I right? Needless to say, owning a full set of off-spec gear has remained something of a dream this expansion, and as for levelling my many LvL85 alts, forget about it!
The news that I will one day soon be able to tank LFR and receive DPS gear to complete my off-spec set is truly welcome. I’m sure my fellow guild tank, who must always switch to DPS on solo tank bosses, will love it too.
What do you think? Have you found it difficult to find the time to do everything you want to do in Pandaria? Does your main toon demand all of your time?
Penny for your thoughts.
