Galadria: Shared Topic #1

January 28, 2008

Shia, who writes Banana Shoulders, over at Blog Azeroth had the great idea for shared blog topics.  The first sugested topic was

What do you enjoy about the class you play the most?

First and formost I love playing Galadria because she is so very pretty!  Primal Mooncloth is gorgeous and it just looks fabulous on the NE model.  I know, I know…  hey, I’m a girl…  I’m allowed to think like that!

For a more serious look at this topic, I’ll give you a little history.  My husband and I started playing WoW because a couple of friends played.  He had thought about starting over Christmas but never got around to buying the game and when he went back to work after the holidays found out that several of his co-workers played WoW.  We bought the game gave it the good-old 10 day trial.  I originally wanted to play a Hunter; the idea of having a pet was very appealing to me.  However, as he usually does, Mr. Galadria stole my idea and said he wanted to be a Hunter; if I said that too I’d just be copying…  Druid was my second choice; shape-shifing sounded really cool too.  Since our friends played Alliance, I had to be a NE and Mr. Galadria rolled NE too.  After playing a little and reading a little and talking a lot, we decide that we need a healer…  look at that, I play a class that can be a healer!  Then I made the mistake of listening to some forum trolls that said Druids would be mediocre at anything they tried to do because they’re hybrids, and guess what Priests are the best healers…  Druid abandoned, Priest rolled.  Eventhough the reasons were crappy, I still think the move to a Priest was better for me.  I love having a spell for absoutley ANY situation.  I need a heal, Binding Heal on tank and heal both of us.  Entire group needs a heal, Prayer of Healing.  Bad tank and I’m having aggro problems, cast Frisbee every time the cooldown is up.  Mage AOE’ing and pulling lots of aggro, Shield, Renew and spam Flash Heal.  If we’ll be stationary, throw out a Lightwell and let people heal themselves.  I get to heal after I’ve died for cryin’-out-loud!  There is a tool in my toolbox for any situation.

In short, why do I enjoy playing a Priest?  Versatility.  I can do just about anything!
