So, yesterday I watched Syiler on TwitchTV exploring the various DPS classes with respect to the amount of damage that they were doing. Although I realise that I will not be involved in the high end raid content, and that the only place I really need to consider my role would be in LFR, I thought it was time to start to consider which role I would be playing in the forthcoming expansion.
As part of my progression to the new expansion – I’m trying some new roles to see what I will be able to play. Despite the the difficulties I mentioned in my Raid Role Post I thought I would have a go at tanking! Using a paladin since I had played one as a healer before, I embarked on the first dungeon in the Beta. This is the video about how it went…
If I ever see a discount or an offer I have to seriously think do I need this. This is especially true when shopping and the classic “buy two for the price of one” appears in the aisles. Although this rarely happens in World of Warcraft, there was an offer I couldn’t resist.
So this week I had a bit of a change of direction with my characters. After leveling a DeathKnight to 60th in preparation for the profession upgrade ready in the next patch I decided to leave my shaman and start to concentrate on my Paladin. I often wonder which sort of class I play the best within any game. I usually end up with either a pet class or the magic user. I think this is because I would always volunteer to play this class in the ‘olden days’ of dungeons and dragons. When playing World of Warcraft, I actually do enjoy playing a healer, mainly due to the fact that I find it hard to maintain the constant competition to achieve the highest DPS values of the long queues for raids when not playing a healer. With the new Crusader class coming out for Diablo 3 – I suddenly thought I like playing a class in heave armour (preferably plate) and weilding a shield and mace – or alternatively a two handed hammer. With this in mind I decided to start playing my paladin Armyth again.
