Breakfast Topic: What sides have you picked? {WoW}

May 28th 2009 8:23AM Paladins. my first real 70 (as in the first one i didnt just get to 70 and abandon for a new class) was a holy BE pally and when all my friends rolled alliance and i felt like playing a tanking character there was only one real choice. port pally. never looked back

May 18th 2009 3:49PM while this is indeed sometimes the case (not sure whether it aplies to the OP) it is not always the case. two quick personal examples:

1. when i orginally joined my current guild i was better geared than both the main tank an off-tank and despite this i was told that i wouldnt be given a raid spot as a tank as i was new. i accepted this an switched to healin for a while. in this case it was because the two other tanks had been in the guild longer and had built up a relationship with the rest of the raid. Point: raid relationships can be a bigger factor than gear/skill

2. when the offtank left the guild i stpped in to fill the role. currently working on 10man Ulduar we've hit a bit off a snag as it seems the MT just isnt filling his role any more. he doesnt prepare properly on raid nights (reading tactics etc) and is often late. my gear is equal to his an we have another great tank sitting on the sidelines who could make a great OT/MT however the current MT has been in the guild a long time an none of the officers have the balls to tell him to pick it up or get out. Point: raid relationships can be a bigger factor than gear/skill

that being said i do mainly agree with you, just wanted to post a slightly different perspective

May 18th 2009 11:26AM i think his attacks on the tanks were made cause he feels he can tank better but just insnt being allowed

his attacks on the healers however....unforgivable

May 18th 2009 11:12AM Im in a very similar position with my prot pally. my first character, 80 resto shaman on another server, cleared most of pre 3.1 content. however when i started my pally on another sevrer (all my friends rolled alliance...bastards) i was in a position where i had experience but no achievements to link to prove it. most guilds i enquire about seem to be full on tanks an while i have holy as my off spe i dont enjoy it nearly as much as tanking. ive thought of starting my own guild but again without the gear and achievements its hard to recruit people who are serious abut progression. ive ended up pugging naxx a few times with little success but ah well hopefully find a guild that suits my needs soon :P

btw if any guilds on Aerie Peak EU are looking for a prot pally whisp satria in game :P (doesnt hurt to do a bit of advertising while i moan )

May 17th 2009 3:49PM i really dont know much about computers but with my new pc which a friend made for me, one of the biggest upgrades was to put in more RAM an it made such a huge difference, though you may wanna check with people who really know what theyre talkin about to give you their insight first :P
