Hello to all new reader types! If there are any :P
My name is D--------. I currently play an Orc Shaman in World of Warcraft. My wife also plays an Orc(as always hunter). Our little half orc isn't quite yet crawling so for her to be playing anything would be a stretch. But she is an attention hog so she'll probably play a warrior.... she's already good at holding agro.
Why shaman? Well... I needed to be hybrid because well... it fits my play style. I like to be able to heal a fellow if they need it but I -way- prefer to melee dps. But what about Paladin you say? Let me tell you:
Yes your dear little platewearing undead hating psychopaths can almost not be killed...and wow yes they do have nice buffs for all the little people around you but... who likes not doing damage? Not I. Yeah yeah I know that some retrib paladins will tell me they do damage....but I played one to 32 and just can't do that anymore.
If you haven't noticed by now I have a bad habit of using a series of "." as commas/periods. Not just elipsis but any time I want to pause, I use them. Hopefully this will fix that.
Oh and I ramble... now back to my subject. Shaman yes, Paladin no. Druid? Let me quote my wife: "Yer big bear butt gets in the way." I tried to tell her about this cool bear druid I had read about but she was having none of it. If I'm going to play a druid I'll have to do so solo and on my own time.
Non-hybrid classes: Mage(tempting but no), Priest(I like healing... I hate the squishy), Rogue(maybe one of these days when I have a dedicated tan---nah who am I kidding...too intense for me), Warrior(If I want to play a tank I would go druidbear..if I want to do damage I'll go rogue...thats it), Hunter(PETSRULE... BOWS/GUNS STINK). I think thats it. If I forgot a horrible icky nasty class that makes my skin crawl you can't blame me :p.
Why blog? Because I found a ton of blogsites.... for druids... for hunters... a warrior or two... a priest... an icky... but no shamans.
So hopefully this will be a nice consistant place for me to post my WoW ramblings. And other comments.
Also I used to use/update yerrik.blogspot.com but I lost my password, and a bad experiance with AT&T lost me my yahoo email that I signed up for the blog with, so I now have no way of signing in. So I've made copies of everything and am swapping over to here. Specially now that I'm turning this into a WoW based blog.
Oh and if you are one of the three people on the planet that I have not yet told.... my baby orclette can now hold her own bottle and can creep a good 5 feet(2 feet off her blanket) before crying!
Yay! She's leveling so fast :P.
Dear Mr. CoolerOrcThanI. Thank you for getting me started on fishing. Your descriptions of it made me hungry for trout from a muddy pond in the Barrens and now I have something ELSE to help keep me from ever reaching 70.
Well its well past my orclette imposed bedtime so I'm turning off Rockbiter and putting down my totems and crashing.
See you guys on the flip side.
