Very first toon was a male paladin. Second toon was a female holy priest, which has been my main since late vanilla. After four years, I have 8 level 80s: 2 priests, 2 paladins, hunter, druid, warlock, DK, and many lower level alts. I also have a number of male toons, though female toons outnumber them.

I have two priests, one Holy and one Shadow, both Disc offspec. They were trained by the same High Priestess and are mirror images of each other.
Holy priests use the Light to heal and damage. Shadow priests wield what most are afraid to see for both damage and healing. Discipline priests have learned to wield the mirror to similar effect. There is nothing of necromancy in a Shadow priest's training; it simply uses what is hidden to defeat enemies. (IMO)

Apr 8th 2010 2:14AM I'm surprised Fox didn't mention Vampiric Embrace. It's an easy spell to put up to support an under-geared (or poor) healer. I usually wait to see if it's needed, but especially if the entire party is taking a lot of damage it really can prevent a wipe.
Apr 3rd 2010 11:43AM I imagine the long hours eventually eat away at your life. I read elsewhere that the standard for CMs is 60 hours per week and on projects it goes to 80. Even if paid for all that extra time in, that's still a lot of hours unavailable to do other things in life.
Eyonix was the passion behind the Guild Relations Program and other community-building enterprises. We will miss him.

Mar 19th 2010 1:58PM The music in WoW is definitely a huge part of the game's immersion for me. Every location has its own sense of place because of the music, and I find my memories of experiences are colored by what the music evoked in me at that time.
I feel like I sit up a little straighter when I enter Stormwind. I can't go to Nagrand without my heart suddenly feeling bigger because the first time I went there, the experience of sky and music took my breath away. The same is true of Grizzly Hills and Storm Peaks. I always have the music on as it's an integral part of my WoW experience, and I can't imagine it any other way.
