Oct 27th 2008 1:13PM Good to know I'm not the only one!! Yes, my friend stick to the PROT! Screw what everyone tells you is best. I started a Blood Elf Paly and I'm going Prot all the way!
Here's a lesson on what's best: Play what the hell makes you happiest to play, what makes you enjoy it more, and what makes you enthusiastic every time you log on.
On a side note, I played a Prot Warrior into the mid 50s back 2 years ago when it was an absolute attrocity to do so. My stubborness persevered and I don't regret it. He's still my favourite character. He's a bald, pale angry shield and sword gnome. End of story.
I must say, coming back to the game 2 years later with the new feat tree fixes on Prot... holy crap is all I gotta say. If you don't believe me--try a Prot now.
