Despite those problems, our partnership in any game has developed an easy rhythm based on years of playing side by side. Duo issues like choosing compatible classes and playstyles, staying in level range of one another, and choosing what to do on any given evening have become a given. Even before the days of theorycrafted precision, our familiarity with the level of insanity we can tackle as a twosome was legendary among our little group of friends. Short of that big kill your guild has been working on for months and finally downs amidst deafening cheers and howls on Vent, I really haven't found a more satisfying feeling than the times I set out with my partner in crime.
So it's been a while -- a whole expansion now, /sob -- since we played together, and I'm missing that feeling of someone always having my back. If I pour you a virtual cup of coffee this morning, would you let me peek in on your own dynamic duos? Tell me about your favorite class/spec combo -- and the combinations that didn't work for you at all. What have you found to be the most frustrating parts of playing WoW with someone close to you? And its greatest rewards?
I'm curious how you think Mists has affected the picture. What's the most enjoyable new content or feature Mists offers for diving into with a partner? Is there anything new that isn't so great for a duo that sticks together?
