Holyfish, Champion of Stormwind

As a wow player, I have a reasonable amount of skill. I love to AoE and I can level pretty well when I set my mind to it. The things that I lack are focus on a character and motivation to level. With news of some of the 3.1 goodies, both have been taken care of.

I never saw any tangible benefit to charging to the level cap, and as most of the people I know play on a PvP server, it was just too frustrating to level through ally infestation. I have since started playing primarily on a PvE server where that isnt an issue and the need to reach the level cap has started to be cultivated. I want the stormwind tabard.

Humans are my favorite race in the game, bar none, and its not just because I happen to be one lol. Ten percent extra rep is nothing to sneeze at and humans just look the best in my opinion. I have to have a nice looking beard on my guys, humans fit the bill. Also, from the time I first set foot in it, I have loved stormwind. It may not be the easiest to find things in (a distinction I believe belongs to Undercity), but it is by far the best looking.

I may never get the suneater (maybe I can convince my new guildies to run heroic mechanar a bunch, I still want it because it just looks awesome), I can definately get a stormwind tabard (so I can look just like the stormwind guards).

I had a whole big post planned about what I did this weekend but its basically hit 68, should be 70 next weekend (which makes first 2 70s the same class lol), hit 350 blacksmithing and did a few levels with the mage. It took a lot more work than it sounds like.

Humans. Hoomans! Hooman Beans!
I love them, 80% of my characters are human, and if you could get Druids and Shamans as Human then that would rise to a 95%, so i understand your likeness to them.

If the credit crunch meant mass genocide for WoW, what two races (2 per faction) would you keep? :).

Mine would be Human, Night elf and Undead, Belf.

Undead and Belf? Not very warcrafty, I agree with your alliance side, but I would keep Orcs and Trolls, as much as I am not a huge fan of the way trolls look, they are old school warcraft, and remember Warcraft 1 was Orcs and Humans, have to keep those 2 at least. I like night elves, but a case could be made for dwarves as the other alliance race as they're pretty prominant also

Grats on getting him to Northrend.

Kromus said...

Yeah Fish, hard to decide but i still stand by Undead, not so sure on Blood Elf but my understanding for the horde lore isn't as high as it could be.

My decision for Blood Elf was a shallow decision of how i like there looks.The Undead however are far more in-depth. The forsaken. The mystery of why and what they do that is similar to Humans.

Metaphor for Life and Death?

:) Hooman beans!

Ruhtra said...

Well if we want to go with two races for each I would say alliance should have Humands and High Elves (Rangers rocked!)

For the Horde I would concur with the Orcs and the Trolls.

Not a huge Night Elf fan here though.

As a side note, still think Blizz messed up with the Blood Elves. They seem so out of place with the Horde, but it is what it is.
