I have two more issues

1 When displaying the text in the status bar for an opponent, the text appears to be double printed.
2 It's forgotten some places I've been to. The most egregious example was being told I'd discovered the Forlorn Cavern in Ironforge, the same Forlorn Cavern in which I'd spent many a happy hour fishing. (Unless this might be a case where they've created a new subzone ...)

Before I end up sounding like a broken record, I should say that there are definite improvements. The graphics seem to have been sharpened up, several icons are nicer, and the voice chat stuff appears to work better than previously (though that could just be me). If the bugs found (and with tens of millions of users, they will be found) are quickly fixed, I'd say it's generally positive (even if they have, as expected, nerfed Death Knights somewhat).

Having played a DK to 68, they were in desperate need of a nerf. So far, bar the PC issues I've had, the patch is, imo, great. Bar the Lifebloom nerf of course.

Though they were still popping quite nicely last night in the 5-man instances we ran (ok... little baby heroics ;)

Dual specs are nice (and will be better once they clean up the bugs).

Assuming you're talking about lb, it now pops for more, but the mana cost is doubled. Basically this means that keeping up three stacks on three tanks in a raid isn't an option any more. I have to let them pop more often (also, mana regen when they do), but it just requires a change in style.

Referring to the DK's actually, they may have been nerfed but they're still OP. On the subject of trees, Unferth (recently hatched level 80) is just starting to get properly used to the tree style of healing (so very different from the Paladin approach).

On the "wow!!!" side of the patch is the prot talent which allows my Divine Plea to remain up throughout a fight keeping me completely topped up on Mana and ready to pile in to the next collection of trash [How not to make yourself popular with the healing community]

There are only a few fights that are currently mana intensive for me. Most of the time I can storm through with barely a break :) Of course, there are some places that I _like_ to make sure my mana is topped up "just in case" - you know, when someone face-pulls the entire room and I'm only on 70% mana *g*

Just so long as it's not that chamber with trollgore we're usually ok, unless it's the first main pack of mobs in UK, or being feared into room just before Yimron.

Facepulling. Just say.. "oh shitttttttttt"

On the flip side it's damm good practice for the tank to collect everything and make sure the healer isn't being pounded into the floor.

Oh, I'm not arguing that the initial spec was a little over powerful (though it did make it a very nice solo questing class).

What amuses me is that, of the 4 Northrend instances I've been in, I've only ever seen one of them in non-heroic mode, and that only once. Last night I was introduced to the Culling of Stratholme, and was pleasantly surprised that on my very first run, the party made the timed run successfully. Paladin/DK seems an intersting cmbination, if potentially a little fractious when good plate drops.

(But then, my DK is interested in dps plate rather than tanking plate, and certainly rather than healing plate.)

Team "Tin Can", it does mean we usually have a tank wanting the def kit, possibly dps wanting the same for off-spec, dps fighting over attack plate (while the healer is also eyeing it up for off-spec) and the tank eyeing up the healer's plate.

Cloth, leather, mail? Pah, vendor trash!

The logs from last night are up, and it was nice to see we actually blew the drake boss down to zero with 2 minutes to spare.
