When I started playing WoW two years ago, my first character was a warlock
Not understanding what the warlock class was all about, I built myself a bright sunny blond little lock, and quickly tired of the class.
My next character was my mage, and I took to that class quickly and easily, having played similar characters in Neverwinter Nights.
But even the mage didn't truly fit my personality.
Sure, she is my main character, she's my level 70 and I am proud of what I have accomplished with her.
I just don't think I am a mage at heart.
I actually think I am a priest. Yesterday I even took the personality quiz on the World of Warcraft MySpace, and I came up as a priest, albeit an undead one. Since then, I have been thinking why is it I love playing my priest so much. She's only 32, doesn't have all the spiffy gear my older characters have. The conclusion I came to is that the priest class fits my personality best. I wouldn't call myself a pacifist, but I really don't like fighting all that much. Given a choice to confront a mob or go around, I choose the second option. Now that I have rolled my priest, I notice that I am much more content sitting at the back of the raid filling up those green bars. I get a feeling of accomplishment knowing that I am helping keep the group going.
Thinking of all of this made me curious. I'd love to know, what classes fit your personality best? If you were scanned into the game tomorrow, where would you fit in the world? Or, is there no class that truly fits you?
