Who would have thought that my brother, my little brother, the mightly Gnomish mage Elregon, Alliance FTW, elves-suck player is playing a L19 Blood elf paladin
And he is the one who keeps going on about their crappiness, the crappiness of paladins, the crappiness of the race, the crappiness of the skills, and the crappiness of the Horde in general (except for the Undead, which he loves)? I must say that I was rather amused. Logged on to his account to have a look at her and talked to some of his friends who of course thought that it was him, not me. I was nice and told them it was me, though. Whenever we talk about the race he launches into this great big explanation of why Blood elves are just the worst, most despicable race EVER and no self-respecting person on the face of the earth would ever play them.
He is a great little brother.
EDIT: For one reason I really envy the Blood elf characters, they can have better pets. I mean, not that I mind our great blue moths, but these things are just so much cooler:
They look great when they move.
Man, this game really transforms me into an unusually girlish state. In any other game I'd be playing a male, and I am much better at RPGing men than I am at women - but in WoW, I am much more interested in the scenic purple scenery than in the other users. There are very nice users about, but none of the users really RPG, and I don't think there'll be any opportunity to RPG in the near future, especially not with a Draenei char. I created with my very fragmentary knowledge of the world which comes from my PvP, non-RPG oriented brother. Well. I daresay anyone who was even remotely interested in the back story of the world facepalmed considerably upon hearing about the new race and their back story. I know I would have.
EDIT II: Hm. Somehow, I don't really get Blizzards strategy. After all, waiting for The Burning Crusade seemed worthwhile. It was a long wait, and it offered not only Outland, but also two more races and various other benefits. What does the Wrath of the Lich King have to offer? New hairstyles! I mean, it's been about time, too, but I doubt that that addition was made after careful evaluation of their market research.
