Kramer: This is going to be a new look for the ’90s. You’re going to be the first pirate!
Jerry: But I don’t want to be a pirate!
Jerry has about as much choice in the matter as I do apparently.
No, not about being a pirate. (However, my Death Knight just so happens to actually BE a Bloodsail Pirate Admiral.) No, it’s not about that.
My Death Knight is Blood spec. I like that spec. I want to do single target DPS. I like that my DPS can extend to one extra target when I start throwing Heart Strikes around. That’s how I roll. That’s how I like it.
I don’t want the miasma of the diseases and the the ghouls. I don’t want the stress of tanking. I don’t want to be Unholy or Frost spec.
All my gear is geared for Blood spec. (Strength, strength, and strength when I can manage it. Oh, and strength.)
So my Blood spec is being handed a puffy shirt, the “new look of the 90s,” and I’m expected to be the tank in the future? (See WoW.com’s article about it.)
Criminy. Because I want my Death Knight to be DPS-But-Not-Unholy-DPS and not Dual-Wielding-Frost-DPS because I’ve become attached to my two-handed axe.
It’s Cataclysm, so no harm done I suppose. Quest reward greens will replace Tier 9 soon enough.
I still don’t want to be a pirate though.
(The news, HUGE, came real close to April Fool’s day, no?)
