Aug 24th 2009 8:17AM I love all the cries of "but the lore...the lore!" against races getting new classes. People seem very against the idea of a dynamic, growing world. The Tauren were insulated, now they have had access to the teachings of priest/paladins and, given the nobility of their race, it makes perfect sense that they would take up the holy path.
And just hooray for a second shaman race, bye bye to my spacegoat!
Jun 15th 2009 4:11AM I've a question, is there any plan to add more class trainers? Specifically, shaman trainers for horde (only Stonard has them in the Eastern Kingdoms, yet both Stormwind and Ironforge have one) and Warlock trainers for Alliance, where there are NONE on Kalimdor. Seems weird to me that they want to help people level with lower access to mounts, and yet these two classes have to travel continents to train.
Apr 15th 2009 4:29AM Garrosh is an absolute fool, but what I truly love in this video is Jaina and Thrall. Once more, they do nothing. Jaina flaps her arms and wails, just like at the Battle of Undercity, just like the Culling of Stratholme, and affects nothing. Thrall stands by, watches and does not even reprimand Garrosh for attacking Varian. Way to go warchief. For all his faults (and they are many) Varian actually has the balls to back up his statements, the way no other faction leader does.

May 16th 2008 4:42AM Ok, I have one rogue-in-waiting and one level 70, both rp characters. The rogue in waiting is an utterly silly character, calls himself a "Gentleman Adventurer" (a la Indiana Jones) and is very, very English (all Whatho! I say there dear boy... What the ballyhoo is going on? I've literally only played him for an hour or two, stayed IC in all forms of chat (even the ones we normally keep OOC) and had a tremendous amount of fun, as did my guildies.
My other rogue is a psycho. Really.
No, I'm not "guna stb u, gief gold plox", she was made as every gnome I encountered was "cute". So while she is cute and childish in many ways (like most gnomes I met before and after making her), she's been made as a cross between Jack the Ripper and Jeffrey Dahmer.
She's like Jack, in that she revels in carnage and (with skinning) does literally eviscerate people at times (not too graphically, this is a game after all). I've also had her eat "unusual looking meat". However, like Jeffrey, she is able to function in the real world, interact with people and be utterly charming, at least superficially.
And she doesn't end there. She's a noble from gnomeregan, but like some conspiracy theories say of Jack, is inbred. Inbreeding can cause unstable mental states, and for her it comes across in the following way. To her, only Gnomes are "people". Every other race are like animals. They have their uses, like horses or guard dogs (great with tanks, they're her pet meatshields), but aren't worth much to her.
Do I Mary-Sue? Nope. Very few people know all this about her in character (charming remember?), and she actually works within a "good" organisation. Mostly, they just point her at something and release (she ain't the sharpest tool in the box...)
Whew, long post. Anyways, I'm all for playing something original and, from the responses I get, people enjoy my characters.
