Arioch recently dusted off her DK alt. Apparently she doesn’t deal well with playing melee DPS. My gf has the same issue… the druid that she’s levelling as a healer was originally a cat, since that was what was recommended for levelling. She managed to do one dungeon before it was abandoned pending caster heirlooms.
Personally I have the opposite problem. I like to violate my enemy’s personal space along with its face, viciously shutting down any attempts to do Bad Things™ to me or my party while simultaneously reducing it to a quivering mass of pet snacks. On the other hand, playing a caster feels a bit too much like sprinkling fairy dust on the enemy until they decide to go away*.
I wonder, with melee seeing a buff in 4.3, whether we’ll finally see some raid parity with our ranged overlords.
