Why are our toons weaker now then they were at 80?

"With most rpg's (And prior expansions) we outgear the old content, but somehow we ended up in Soviet Russia where the content outgears you."
 
Read that on the blizzard forums about how we are weaker then we were at 80 and thats why the content is harder.
Try going back and doing icc we cant because its actually harder then it was prior to leveling up from 80-85 because they made us weaker overall"
 
Had to post that cause its true sad but true and its the reason why im switching from healer to dps cause healers got hit harder by this stat decay system then dps or tanks, now before i get comments saying "your doing it wrong" "L2Play" etc. i did learn to play my druid the new way i dont waste mana thats not the point of this post the point is why are we weaker then we were at 80?   I Feel like i could go get my level 80 toon and beat this content easier than we are now at 85.
 Also if your level 80-84 wait till your capped you'll se what im talking about
I Guess my questions are


Why are we weaker than we were at 80?


i feel like i could do this content better as a level 80 and that just makes me sad.


i havent tried to go back and do bc stuff yet but try to do Wotlk content and you'll see what im talking about.


When in the history of rpg's did you ever level up and become weaker?


Also why are druids pallys now?


Leave a intelligent comment and tell me i really would like to know

Arena Season 9 starts this week!

The next Arena Season starts tomorrow on live servers, now that some of you are level 85 it might be to explore the PvP side of Cataclysm! (PvP Forums)

Transmute: Living Elements Clarification

 Sorry for he lack of updates, been leveling like everyone else plus there hasn't much news.  Hope everyone is having fun!! Also took me about 24 hours of playing time to hit 85, starting heroics soon kinda scared heh

Typically, when you use Transmute: Living Elements, you will receive 14-16 random Volatile elements (Volatile Air, Volatile Earth, Volatile Water, or Volatile Fire) in exchange for 15 Volatile Life. If you use this transmute while in one of the new Cataclysm zones associated with the Elemental Planes, however, the element into which your Volatile Life will transform will be predetermined. For example, if you use Transmute: Living Elements while in Uldum, you will always receive Volatile Air for your efforts.

Here's a list of the affected zones and their corresponding Volatile elements:

Additionally, alchemists with Transmutation specialization will always receive bonus Volatile elements when completing this transmute. The bonus will be random, though, regardless of which zone you are in.

Cataclysm is going live THIS WEEK! Have Fun!!

 This Post Will Be Updated, Come Back Often!

Got it working :)
 


Cataclysm is going live this week! Players will finally be able to explore the new regions, dungeons, raids, fly in Azeroth, learn Archaeology, and do lot of awesome stuff!

We're just a few hours away from the release of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, and we know many of you still have a few lingering questions on your mind. To help quell those last-minute inquiries and get you completely amped for tonight's launch, we've prepared a quick FAQ that delves into topics like the official launch time of Cataclysm, whether or not there will be any downtime, and what content you'll receive by upgrading.

Take a look!

Q. When will World of Warcraft: Cataclysm officially launch?
A. World of Warcraft: Cataclysm will be released on all North American realms on December 7 at 12:00 a.m. PST (Pacific Standard Time). At that time, those who have installed and upgraded to Cataclysm will be able to access the new expansion content.


Q. Will there be any type of maintenance or downtime tonight?
A. We currently have no maintenance or downtime scheduled for the launch of Cataclysm. This may change depending on how smoothly the launch goes, and we'll be sure to keep you updated should anything change.


Q. So, I won't need to patch or anything?
A. Nope. Once you’ve installed the expansion from the World of Warcraft: Cataclysm DVD or completed the background download (available through the digital pre-purchase: http://us.battle.net/en/info/presale), you're good to go. No additional patching should be necessary.


Q. If I've already installed World of Warcraft: Cataclysm and upgraded my account, will I need to do anything special at midnight in order to access the new expansion content
A. Once Cataclysm is marked live on all realms, simply exit out to the login screen (the one featuring Deathwing's toothy grin) and log back in. This will provide you full access to the new content -- including the goblin and worgen races and level 80-85 zones.

If you're concerned that you won't know when to re-log, we've got you covered. After Cataclysm is marked live, if you're still logged in and are playing from an upgraded client, you'll be prompted with official in-game messaging that will instruct you to log out and then log back in.


Q. Where do I need to go to access the new level 80-82 zones (Hyjal and Vashj'ir)?
A. Portals to each of these embattled zones have been established in Orgrimmar and Stormwind. Report to your respective faction capitols for transportation assistance.


Q. Will I be able to Race Change or Faction Change one of my characters to a goblin or worgen right away?
A. Yes, you will be able to change your characters' race to goblin or worgen by purchasing a Race Change or Faction Change immediately after Cataclysm is released.


Q. So, what exactly do I receive by upgrading to World of Warcraft: Cataclysm?
A. If you upgrade to World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, you will be provided access to the following:

  • Increased level cap (85)
  • Increased profession cap (525)
  • New races: worgen and goblin
  • New secondary profession: Archaeology
  • New level 80-85 content:
    • Five new zones: Hyjal, Vashj'ir, Uldum, Deepholm, and Twilight Highlands
    • Seven new dungeons: Blackrock Caverns, Grim Batol, Halls of Origination, Lost City of the Tol'vir, The Stonecore, Throne of the Tides, The Vortex Pinnacle, as well as Heroic versions of The Deadmines and Shadowfang Keep
    • Four new raids: Baradin Hold, Bastion of Twilight, Blackwing Descent, and the Throne of the Four Winds
    • Three new Battlegrounds: Battle for Gilneas, Twin Peaks, and Tol'Barad (open world PvP similar to Wintergrasp)
  • Rated Battlegrounds
  • Flight Master's License (flying in Azeroth)


Guild leveling and guild reputation will also be available, but you can still benefit from these systems without upgrading to World of Warcraft: Cataclysm.


Q. Are there any official midnight launch events planned?
A. Absolutely! We've several launch events scheduled across the globe. Check out our official launch event page on Blizzard.com, as well as our recent announcement regarding participating retailers, for all the juicy details.
