Draenei are very shaman-y, just are so for different reasons. You just need to learn the lore behind it.
The whole text is there. Very worth a read. Farseer Nobundo is my favorite lore character in the game.
Dec 27th 2010 10:59AM Oddly enough, faction ambiance is the deal-breaker for me. I never thought this would have such a huge effect until I race changed my three-year-old, heavily-played Draenei to a Troll. I was Horde for about a month until I couldn't stand all the spikes and meat everywhere. I know a lot of people like the horde for exactly that reason, and I appreciate and respect that; but I just can't do it. There's not enough variation or personality in that for me.
My distaste for it has become a huge joke amongst my friends, who are all die-hard Hordies. "What faction are you?" "SPIKES 'N MEAT!"

Yes, I certainly can use "your" enchanting mats! You know, by finding an enchanter and paying him to use the mats that I supply. Considering that we always rolled greed on greens anyway and had to get them disenchanted later, your logic is flawed and silly.
Go eat a cookie or something. Your grumpiness seems to be getting in the way of clear thinking.
Dec 11th 2010 12:56PM There's nothing like an "I told you so" situation to teach uncooperative group mates a lesson.
Was in a Stonecore group last night with nobody who'd ever been in there before. They refused to CC or take the time to get a strategy, and gave me a lot of flak for asking for it. At one point the tank said "F$*@ ur strat," charged, and everyone died. Perfect angel afterwards.
While I think it will take a very long time for the general attitude to change, wipes like that will teach people a very badly-needed lesson. I just hope it's faster than I'm expecting, because I am not liking being the verbal punching bag for WotLK-trained players right now.
Dec 7th 2010 11:53PM As an alternate viewpoint, while some people like the Naga, I honestly regret purchasing it (particularly since I had looked forward to it for so long). The biggest complaint people have with it - myself among them - is how big the mouse itself is, yet how tiny the buttons are in comparison. Most of the buttons are for your thumb and reaching 8 out of the 12 thumb buttons can be very awkward. I wound up just binding Q, E, W, and S to the four I can reach. If you have small hands, go for a Razer Deathadder.
I do, however, use a Belkin n52te (also known as a Nostromo) for my left hand. It's basically a palm-shaped keyboard that allows you to keep your hand in one place, so that you don't need to jump around. It solves your problem of not being a good typist by sorting 14 nice, big keys in easy reach of your fingers, 6 in easy reach of your thumb, and a two-directional scroll wheel. It takes a few days to learn to use it, but I can't go back to using a QWERTY keyboard for healing ever again. I've tried.
Take a look at the Naga, Deathadder, and n52te. See if one of them would work for you!

Your lack of cultural awareness is showing.
Oct 27th 2010 5:56PM Nah, you're right, this is pretty bad. I don't look at werewolves and go "Oh hey, I hope she'll slap her boobs and vag sometime soon."
Oct 25th 2010 6:59AM Actually Banic, nobody is more self-righteous than a militant Child-Freer who acts as if it's an unforgivable inconvenience for them to be in the presence of a child. Keep your negativity to yourself and let people enjoy the happiness of that kid.
Oct 24th 2010 11:18AM Seriously, I had to check my calendar because I was afraid I'd missed the first half of the work day. Hahah.
