I rerolled for all of those reasons. It's been very helpful - and leveling is super fast.

I loathe the over simplifications - you even pick your advanced class from the start now.

But, the changes are growing on me.

Doubt the calcs are still valid - BUT there are plenty of updated calcs out there.

Ok - maybe not plenty - but they exist.

Sounds like you've been away closer to 6 or 7 years my dOOd.

Skill trees got merged in 3.0.
Dipstik and KBN have long since quit (was good friends with KBN)
Yes the level cap is 70 soon to be 75
I hate leveling so wouldn't suggest it.

As a vanguard tank main from day one, Yes we are the most lacking tank right now, but it's fine in both PVP and PVE.
