I’m not much of an alt-o-holic. Â I know many people love leveling them for role playing purposes or just for the fun of it. Â In modern day MMO’s, that’s just not my thing. Â I say in modern since i loved leveling multiple classes/jobs in FFXI due to the ability to do so all on one character. Â 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. Â 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. Â My typical race selection usually consist of humans or any race that resembles them. Â 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. Â A process that consisted of whichever race annoyed me the least in some way aesthetically. Â 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! Â Until then, i’m going to go smash stuff with my hammers. Â Fear the mohawk.
