So if your cat does 25% of your damage ...then going to a bear would be a 4.32% reduction in your overall dps.* I take it this is a horrible thing? I'm asking this because bears are COOL. Not sort of cool but wow I'm awesome.
But I don't want to level up a bear to 70 and get all attached to the bugger only to find out that a 4-5% reduction in dps is amazingly huge. P.S. I'm incredibly for T.C.N.O.H.P.**
Being the incredibly introspective, but not insightful person I am I wonder what other bloggers think my style is....this thought comes from Megan and Matt doing their 'how to blog' posts. I've decided that my personal blogging style is "vacilitate a lot and change subjects and misspell things".
So I shall continue. Vent makes me speak funny. I'm constantly realizing that I haven't thought out my sentences in advance. Also I talk a lot. At least when I type I think about 3 words in advance and don't "UHM" so much. I have a very hard time finding words to fit what I'm trying to say. Ask Abuto, and Ess, and anyone else who has heard me in the last 4 days of having a Mic. I'm grasping for words all of the time. This is something I wish to work on.
Also I have to slow down and speak clearly. Because I mumble a lot and drop the volume towards the end of statements.
Almost level 30. This feels a lot faster than my shaman. So much faster with so much less effort, but looking back on my shaman leveling I notice that I spent a lot of time also working on my warlock....basicly I leveled two toons to 40 before stopping and leveling my shaman to 58. This time I've only done the hunter and it will also be my 4th toon to hit 30...every time it gets easier.
* Based on Mania's site saying bears have -9% dps and cats have +10%
