I’m not much of an alt-o-holic. I know many people love leveling them for role playing purposes or just for the fun of it. In modern day MMO’s, that’s just not my thing. I say in modern since i loved leveling multiple classes/jobs in FFXI due to the ability to do so all on one character. I loved having one name associated with all my classes from a recognition and reputation standpoint.That’s why i can say i’m a bit shocked that leveling alts is exactly what I’ve been doing for the last few weeks. Perhaps i just needed a break from the constant pick-up raiding, or perhaps it’s the variety of classes and play styles that keeps me going. Whatever it is, i’m going to ride it out and see where it takes me.
After deciding to level an Enhancement Shaman, i was bummed to realize i couldn’t play the race i wanted. I’m sure this is old news to most people but i’m still a relative newbie when it comes to WoW. My typical race selection usually consist of humans or any race that resembles them. This is specifically why all three of my prior classes are Blood Elves and why i was saddened to realize i couldn’t play one as a Shaman.
I settled on Orc as i went through my process of elimination. A process that consisted of whichever race annoyed me the least in some way aesthetically. I’ll have to live with my yucky Orc until Blizzard grants me my one wish and allows me, and only me, to play a Blood Elf Shaman! Until then, i’m going to go smash stuff with my hammers. Fear the mohawk.
