Aug 24th 2009 11:17AM I'm surprised I'm the first one to mention this, but has anyone else noticed that with the new expansion, Taurens are now the only race in the game with all four healing classes AND all four tanking classes?
Weird? Unbalanced? Awesome?
Jul 9th 2008 7:34AM What's really cool is that I actually wrote an essay for a fourth-year Women's Studies course on WoW, feminism and colonialism about a year and a half ago. The interviewee's topic is really similar to what I wrote, but even better, because she was able to fit the Undead and Belfs into her "other" scheme in a way that I really wasn't able to - but then again, I submitted the essay only about a month before BC came out. She also referenced one of the same academics (Nakamura) that I did, which is neat.
I'm excited that I can think along the same line as much more experienced academics. I'm also wondering if her research covers the assumed heteronormativity present in the game's flirt emotes, and the body politics inherent in character creation. I'd love her insights into the subject.
