Dec 26th 2011 6:05PM Mothers make the best tanks IMO. "NO, you can't play with the DPS, you'll break them! Stay over here with me and DON'T MOVE." *stuns mob*
Oct 30th 2011 11:24AM Well, you could start with a super-phased starter zone like the worgens'. You start as Random Dragonkin with no idea *which* flight you're from (am picturing a backstory involving a bunch of threatened eggs that got spirited to safety but mixed up/stuck humanoid in the process), get your backstory going in the first ten levels, and "discover" your flight color and abilities when you specialize at level 10. Red for tanky, green for healy, blue for spell DPS. Black and possibly bronze are out of the picture due to insane leaders. :) Or give 'em a fourth tree like druids are supposed to get come MoP, and you can have bronze as melee DPS, maybe.
And I want a Tauren or dwarven dragon shapeshifter, dammit!
Sep 6th 2011 1:41PM I'm old-school, have hated Knaak since he was doing bad Knaak-offs (sorry) of Christopher Stasheff's books back in the 1980s. I don't have to be a published author to know when a book is bad, any more than I have to be a professional chef to know when food tastes godawful.
Aug 7th 2011 9:12PM An older shaman, maybe? One who's watched the natural cycle of things long enough to be equally comfortable with growth and decay. Perhaps injuries sustained in their lifetime/war/the Shattering leave them unable to keep up with the physical demands of shamaning, so they turn to priestly ways instead.
May 19th 2011 8:20AM I have high hopes for Magatha Grimtotem in that regard. She's a pragmatic villain, not a tragic one, and she's not evil just for kicks, she's evil because it's the best way to get her tribe ahead. I would love to see her make a conscious choice to throw her lot in with the 4.3 raid baddies, whoever they may be, because "hey, they can help me accomplish my goal".
And after the last place we see her, you *know* she's gonna wind up a boss somewhere...
Jun 25th 2010 8:45PM As a feral druid, I commend our avian brothers and sisters for being clad entirely in cat toys. It makes those pre-raid lulls much more entertaining and keeps our reflexes sharp for combat.
Jan 19th 2010 11:33AM I constantly repeat to myself: "It's not an instance party, it's an escort quest".
Seems to help.
Jan 15th 2010 7:59AM Seriously. I like tanking, but after a dozen "OMG pull faster!" noobs, the DPS who criticize my gearing at the same time the healer is DPSing because I'm taking no damage, and *especially* the holy pally who ran around Consecrating mobs 20 yards in front of me...I'd rather wait the fifteen minutes to get in at DPS. It's just not worth it.
Oct 22nd 2009 7:47PM WTB female tauren. Just one. They DO exist, honest.
Jan 13th 2009 11:49AM My enhancement shaman is female, and in RP terms started out as a counselor/strategist/healer-on-the-fly for a bunch of beleaguered outrunners while the Tauren were getting their tails kicked by centaur and quillboar. Leaving aside the loaded question of real-world leadership, Tauren females should be just as likely or more so to be in charge; they're based on cows, after all, and herd animals tend to be strongly matriarchal.
