All of this will -easily- be solved in about 5 years when my darling orclette can sleep by herself while mommy and daddy trot off to do
But in the mean time I'm torn between the desire to get to 70 as quickly as possible(this means not starting over after reaching level 27) and the desire to party as a main healer/tank. I'm researching the healing path of shaman but I never really considered it viable for me. We'll see though if I ever earn enough 'extra' gold to respec.
This brings something to mind. The difference between play style and rp style.
I'm going to define play style as: "What you would do if your character looked like a classical pawn and your class was 'player'." Ie: I would like to see big large numbers. Or I would like to help others do better. Or I would like to survive anything, everything...doesn't matter if my damage sucks.
Rp style? This I'm going to define as who I think my player is. Dark brooding hero, lovable boom, animal master, controller of demons.
Where am I going with this? Well I am conflicted. I LOVE instant cast DOT spells. I love pets. I like to solo and I like to be able to ress myself instead of walking back.
However I hate Demons. The idea of a class that consorts with darkness completely bothers me. If I lived in a RL azeroth I'd be petitioning for a 'witch' hunt. This isn't like RL where religion might be debated.... IN AZEROTH WE KNOW THAT PEOPLE WHO WORK WITH DEMONS ARE BAD.(TJ yer forgiven I know you really wish yer blueberry was a pink fluffy bear with a heart on its chest.)
I know this is just a game and I've played a lock but the flavor still bothers me and I doubt I will ever have a warlock as a main because of it.
Classes I would chose for RP: Warrior, Hunter, Holy Priest, Mage
I know that Warrior is what I would like to be. Roaming around in Plate with a rune etched broadblade and an obsidian shield emblazoned with an icy blue sigil. But I don't like the rage mechanics and I hate how gear dependant I am.
Classes I would chose for play: Warlock, Shadow Priest, Warlock, Druid, Shaman
Anyone else have issues like this? Where you want to -be- one thing and -play- another?
