I have a 70 Tauren Shaman. I love playing him. I can go on raids with him, see end-game content. It’s great.
I have a 70 Orc Warrior. I love playing him. Axes flying, armor plated and furious looking. He could raid if it weren’t for the big Tauren Shaman ahead of him.
I have a 69 Night Elf Hunter. I should love playing him. He’s very easy to play. Except there’s this lack of excitement. This meaningful “coolness” factor. Maybe I should BG more with him.
I have a 53 Night Elf Druid. I do love playing him. Particularly with the wife’s own Druid. This is good, fun gameplay. Stealth around, mangle the unsuspecting, run fast, heal, buff…. He’d be further along if it weren’t for the big Tauren Shaman ahead of him.
I’ve got a 53 Night Elf Rogue. He was my second serious character, after the Hunter above. He’d be further along… if it weren’t for the big Tauren Shaman ahead of him that was my third serious character.
I’ve got a 44 Human Paladin. I really wish he wasn’t languishing like he is. But do you see the crowd ahead of him? And don’t forget about the crowd behind him.
I’ve got a 43 Forsaken Priest. She went Shadow at 40, Holy at 43. I think I like the ability to Heal. Makes me feel … sanctimonious, but in a good way.
Alts. I love them. It’s really rather fun to start a new character and knock around the starter areas again. And again. And again. I don’t know why. It’s like doing level 1-10 of your favorite game over and over. And I don’t really roleplay much. “Getteth thee to thy trainer thou peasanths! Forsooth, only the nooblike ones would playeth as badlyith as thouith.” Or something like that. But I do think like a roleplayer a little in my own mind. While only level 1 at the moment, I look forward to donning the form of Legrim, the Forsaken Rogue, and viewing the world through his angry, hooded, eyes. I want, need, to strike fear in hearts. (When I’m not throwing lightning bolts and heals as my Shaman.)
And I really need to recreate my Draenei Shaman. (Warrior, Mage, and Paladin Draenei aren’t enough.)
What I like about playing (and leave it at that)? It’s fun.
