My Thoughts on RoK

So far I am really liking all the new content. Personally, I love questing, so this new expansion is right up my alley. I'm having a lot of fun exploring the new areas which are quite challenging to solo since everything hits so hard.

My first complaint is with spell upgrades. The spells I have seen worth upgrading so far have only been a marginal upgrade. Were talking 1-2% better than my previous spells. Perhaps Sony thought we had it too easy in the last expansions? I'm still trying to figure out why they aren't giving us much here.... I have doubts on how well this strategy will work out in the high end raiding content.

The second complaint I have is with heroic content. There are already too many people complaining about this and for good reasons. I'm not going to get into it here. Come on Sony, people that group and want to grind that way should be able to this!

I have my Wizard AA tree maxed out now. Here is the build I decided to go with.

It is unbelievable how much difference 5 points in Fusion makes! No longer do I get beat upon when trying to cast this spell... I now close in to a safe distance and nuke away! I am pretty happy with this build so far. If any of you have opinions on how this will work out in the raiding content I would love to hear it.

I'm still deciding what to do about the Sorcerer AA tree. I really, really want to tack on STR to my AGI/WIS build! But I suffer in raids from aggro so much I am thinking of going INT. This is a really hard choice... The guild I am in doesn't have a consistent raiding Illusionist and Troubadour. Will the INT line solve my aggro issues? Or should I just go all out and add STR?
