  1. cableguy WoW: Wrath of The Lich King

    Player Chronicle -- Posted on Mar 15 2008

    WRotLK is the second major add-on for the mammoth MMO, World of Warcraft. As much as I hate to admit it sometimes, I am indeed a wow junky. But it's ok, because WoW has leaked into the main stream of pop culture!

    Every where I go I see wow t-shirts, pins, posters, figurines, trading cards, commercials, advertsiements and even Illidan Stormrager! (Yes, he frequents my coffee shop... nice guy, little confused and angry.)

    Anyways, I wanted to start a chronicle for this next addon. As of yet, there isn't much information available and what little is available seems to be all in German. (Which surprisingly I am having a hard time translating, even with four years of German!)

    I do believe the biggest anticipated part of this addon will indeed be the inclusion of Hero Classes. The first to be rolled out is the Death Knight, sort of a Paladin-who-fell-from-grace scenario.

    Since I play a ret paladin and have already fallen from grace in the eyes of other holier-than-tho (no pun intended) paladins, I think the hero class will fit my personality/playing style to a T! Lets hope the game mechanics of the class don't suck. I truly enjoy being up in the front lines of battle, unlike the uber-wussy warlocks and mages who preferto run away and ice bolt/death coil when they can. Losers.

    This brings me to another subject: Social acceptance in and outside of wow.

    Most people know about the monstrous pixelated oddity that is WoW. In fact, most of them play. With an estimated 10,000,000 worldwide subscribers, this is the biggest game in the history of.... well... everything. And the funny thing is, you will get more crap for playing the game INSIDE THE GAME, than you will in real life, or IRL as we say.

    It's true. Especially if you play a gimp spec, such as... oh... a RET PALADIN! Everyone hates you and you are down right ostracized by other classes. Well ya know what, Mr. Roguey Rogue? I just hit you for 11k damage, what now?

    Anyways, I really didn't start this chronicle as a rant on WoW, but it has ended up that way! Feel free to rant along with me!
