I haven't played this in like 2 years in any meaningful capacity aside from logging in to give my friend money and carry his trash can thru 4.3 and I am personally insulted by the removal of kind lady and the buff changes. I can only imagine how absurdly obnoxious it is to actually raid where random deaths aren't exactly uncommon and then you have to rebuff constantly. Duoing on your own, something I spent degenerate amounts of time doing would be miserable now in comparison to when I did it and it was already miserable then. Anyways buffs are stupid, they solved the problem then decided they didn't want people actually playing the game so they broke it again. Every time I pop in to read patch notes Im pretty sure its just a game to see what garbage people will put up with because there isn't anything quite like sod. As a side note in many hours playing my shaman aside from recasting river keeper and gender illusioning to get rid of the form Im pretty sure I have one set of spells loaded and never look at a book ever.
