Jan 8th 2012 2:59AM I'm surprised at the number of people who play females because they like the character animations/jokes/whatever better. That's the precise reason that all but two of my characters are male. Can't stand most of the females (damned sexual dimorphism, trolls shouldn't look like blue humans).
Now, on a semi-related tangent, both my female toons are rogues, one human one orc. Make of that what you will.
Dec 27th 2011 1:36AM My first toon was a rogue. My main for years was a protadin. I've learned that I find distance playing boring; I'd rather be in the thick of things than standing in the back. My mage has stagnated at 40 since BC, I got bored with a warlock, and I can only take hunters because they play like rogues. And I have never rolled a priest.
My old guild leader was a married mom, who mained a rogue. I'm not even sure she had a healer alt.
Meanwhile, my brother has had a resto druid since vanilla, one of his several max level characters. When he would talk about healing spells, or I'd watch him heal something when I wasn't playing, my eyes would start to glaze over.
It's as has been pointed out already: Specs and classes are based more on personality than gender. My bro is a nice chap, so he heals. I am a violent ass, so I stab people. (Now, despite this, I do hate PvP, but that's because I am also antisocial and not coordinated enough to play against another human. Combine that with me being a sore loser, it's a disaster.)
Dec 26th 2011 3:27AM "I've mentioned idly before that Jaina and Varian would make a good match for each other"
If such a thing occurs, I will go all the way to SoCal and pimp slap the writers, and possibly frown at you Anne for encouraging them. Those two are more broskies, or at most those two friends people tend to have who bicker like they're married but never in a million years would actually get together.
What's that, this article was about Anduin? Uh, well......Anyone else think the art in the header image makes him look about 25? Heck, his in game model looks about 16; I thought he was supposed to be about 12 or 13 still. They grow up so fast?
Dec 20th 2011 12:15AM Damn. Guess that means next year I'll have to not write my story in the space of one day. (To be fair, my computer was in the shop.) Grats to the winners.
Nov 15th 2011 11:41PM Why, my birthday is 23 June! And Jaina is one of my favorite characters! This news makes me a happy panda (no pun intended).
Jul 24th 2011 2:02AM "...the next big book in the Warcraft universe will be written by Christie Golden and focus on Jaina Proudmoore."
That sound you heard was me dying happily.
For whatever reason, Jaina is one of my absolute favs, and the fact that she has done diddly in Cata makes me a sad panda. So happy Golden's doing this one, she's the only one who seems able to write Jaina worth a damn, so she might even come close to being percieved as a badass.
Mar 11th 2011 12:58AM Y'know, I have my doubts about Sentinel Sweetspring. Her "flirting" with the other sentinel always made me think more that she was messing around, especially given the other sentinel's reaction, and the fact that every other thing Sweetspring says smells of impishness of the highest order. (I could be completely wrong, of course. It's been known to happen.)
On a different note, I do feel bad for the Queue-ers having to slog through 25 pages of open hostility, so I'll ask a simple question: What is your favorite kind of cake?
Mar 11th 2011 12:45AM Isabel Jones was mentioned earlier, on the Horde side of things you've got Marith Lazuria. Both give the quest "A Present for Lila" which involves impressing the titular Lila with a necklace. Take that how you will.
Jan 7th 2011 8:20PM "Seriously. All I see in this image is Jaina going, 'ENHANCE. ENHANCE. ENHANCE.'"
This comment is solely to say that the above line had me giggling like a madman.
Well played, Sacco. I would watch the hell out of CSI: Theramore.

That line kills me, in any format.
