I haven't messed with Biotics much, as I'm a soldier. The biotic combat is probably awesome though, which I will say is above Mass effect 1.
I have 50k hp as a warrior tank, with just a little bit of ICC10 gear. Cataclysm I believe is going to break 100k for a tank, but everyone will have 100k, even cloth wearers. They're normalizing everyone, I think. Not too thrilled, but we'll see.
Yeah I get what you're saying about the damage. I'm a tank so I always look at things in HP perspective. Back when I played 30,000HP was a lot. Now something like 60-70K is a lot. What's going to be a lot of Cataclysm? 100,000?
I liked Mass Effect 1 better all around, even combat. I liked the heating system vs heating coils (aka clips). I hate having to worry about ammo.
Yeah, a lot of classes are ridiculous now. Level 77 mage doing 20,000+ damage in 1 hit. A lot of classes got buffed. If they keep doing that, just how far can you go? It won't be fun if you can do 100,000 damage with every hit.
Mass Effect 2 has been keeping me awake. That and goofing off on Warcraft. =S 2AM...I should probably get some sleep. Good luck on Sonic so you can keep your having finished all Sonic games personal achievement =D
