I shivered at the first sentence. "People who want challenge are killing MMOs?" Really? How many of the dumbed-down ezmode mmos are thriving? Arguing about an LAS on a forum where the game is designed for LAS seems counterintuitive to me. Trying to follow the WoW model at this point would involve scrapping YEARS of work and starting all over. WS will be LAS. If that's a dealbreaker, then you probably shouldn't waste time on a game you won't enjoy. Harsh, but true. I like LAS. It means less duplication of abilities, less ability bloat, and my choices actually matter, both in build and in combat. It also means that my Stalker will be uniquely mine. Whereas my Death Knight is exactly the same as every other Blood Death Knight across how many hundreds of servers (I've yet to see a MoP talent that actually matters). If having every ability available all the time "just in case" is so important, there are a great many MMOs out there for you, including the 900 lb gorilla, WOW. I'm sorry/happy to say that WS is not one of them.
