It's actually taken me most of this expansion to feel like I really am a DPS warrior, instead of just a tank who isn't tanking at the moment. I still like to tank - I make use of my prot offspec fairly often, I tank LFR, I do old Cataclysm content as prot - but last night during Siege, as I finally got my second Greatsword of Pride's Fall from Heroic Sha of Pride, it finally clicked that yeah, I DPS. I raid with two DPS specs even though it means I have to respec between prot and arms every day. I spend hours researching the best possible and best feasible gear sets, I just set up a new Weak Aura that plays Cookie Monster at me whenever Recklessness is up. Man, is the Cookie Monster voice the best Weak Aura voice of all time? I don't see how there can be any debate of this issue.
I'm finally comfortable with my specs, my rotation, and what I'm asked to do in raids as DPS. I finally don't mind dying to stupid BS like the wall of elementals spawning on Heroic Dark Shaman just as I run out of the green ooze. I know exactly how to time my cooldowns for maximum destruction on H. Malkorok. I am a DPS warrior.
I realize that I'll probably end up tanking now that I've said this. Anyway, for all of us who enjoy murdering things, be it with daggers, giant weapons, fel magic or the power of the arcane, elemental fury... however you kill stuff, this Queue is dedicated to us, the DPS.
This question is probably a little late to the queue but I was wondering about it after reading the last KYL article comments:
Do pygmies, goblins, gilblins, and grummles all come from the same source/origin? Is one an evolution or genetic mutation of the other? They all have roughly the same physical structure.
Someone had mentioned kobolds / goblins but kobolds seem more rat-like in appearance and have a different stance and shorter arms.
Goblins and gilgoblins are related - gilgoblins are literally goblins with gills. The World of Warcraft Magazine, before it stopped publication, argued that pygmies and goblins shared a distant common ancestor, but not much else is known. We know goblins were mentally uplifted by exposure to Kaja'mite when they were enslaved by trolls and forced to mine the stuff - pygmies might be what you get if you don't get uplifted. Grummles and kobolds are both said to be descended from troggs, but not related to goblins or pygmies in any way. Virmen are considered similar to kobolds, but no actual relation has been established - they're both just short and annoying for players.
So basically, pygmies and goblins yes, grummles no. Grummles are in the trogg evolution group. And frankly they're probably the pinnacle of the trogg evolution group, since dwarves are not actually descended from troggs (troggs and dwarves both descend from earthen undergoing matrix destablization).
