Yeeeesh, playing WoW these days on patch 4.0.1 has been nothing but a headache. New talents, new "priority rotations" (sounds like an oxymoron to me), new glyphs, and most of all, a new approach in playstyle. But despite all the new stuff that abounds, sadly there is a TON of broken code in the game that has driven me to the edge of insanity.
I am keenly aware and have accepted the fact that Blizzard took a refined version of the PTR on the live servers in an attempt to polish everything before the big Cataclysm launch on December 7th. However, I was frustrated to the point of outright quitting WoW with the so-called "Cogwheel of Doom" Never heard of it? Lucky you. Just google it and all will be revealed.
Now, there is a temporary "fix" to this; simply run two macros before actually going cross-server, but it only reminds me that the game I enjoy is currently and deliberately broken. I've been trying to understand the new tanking mechanics (no more WOTLK style tanking, but a revamp of the old TBC style), but I've almost stopped playing just to wait for Blizzard to release a new patch. Eh, I am dead tired of ICC, all the 5-mans, and even the World Events (Hallow's End is currently live).
Ugh, December 7th just can't come fast enough, but then again, I feel like I don't care anymore :(
