So the jury is still out and many times through the evening I thought, frak this spec, I'm changing back to Survival as soon as we finish. By the time we got to Hodir I was getting comfortable in my zombie-like trance of spamming every single button and I was starting to warm up to it.

One quest that I always like to do when I have time is the Tale of Valor quest chain from Tirion Fordring in Crusaders Pinnacle. Tirion asks you to find Crusader Bridenbrad who he fears has succumbed to the Lich King's plague. Traveling to the snowy peaks of Icecrown you find Bridenbrad barely alive and, as Tirion suspects, infected with the plague. Tirion is determined to save him and sends you all over Azeroth and Outland to ask for help: Keeper Romulus, Alexstraza and A'dal. All offer their most powerful spells for our dying paladin but none can fully cleanse him of the blight. As death is inevitable, A'dal appears by our hero's side. He promises him a peaceful death and as he ascends to the sky A'dal assures you that the crusader "shall only taste paradise".
After all the non-stop violence, death, bloodshed and gore it is very refreshing and comforting to truly save someone. In a land where death can mean undeath seeing him lifted up into the heavens always makes me happy.
Take whatever religious meaning you like from the Narru's - their blinding white light, telepathy and calming music that fills you when they are near. They represent one of the higher beings in WoW and,I find it reassuring to remember they are around.

Things I've tried to start blog topics on but I got distr…cookies are done!
Gov: I got my fifth character to 80 – hooray! Now to promptly ignore him! No-no, I'm going to try to make him my tank (yeah, right). I did a basic frost spec and now all I have to do is actually step up to the pla – you know what, I'm not even going to say it.
PS – does anyone know how to DK tank?
Blogs: This post from Roguewind Rants made me smile. I like when people love their class so much they stick it in your face and make you wear it like a hat (what?).
Lore: I had to skip to the end of the "War of the Ancients" trilogy because I could not take Richard Knaak's writing any longer. To save you the trouble – here are some spoilers:
The dragon aspects fall all over themselves because they are oh so old and dragony. Illidan gets imprisoned "for ten thousand years". A cool orc dies. Rhonin gets back to Varessa and zee babies. The Night Elves remain jerky.
Bored: I'm bored with people saying they are bored with WoW. Is it fun to be challenged? Of course! Do you have to be challenged to have fun? I hope not – because I don't think this is the game for you. There are loads of fun and funny things to do in the game! Level an alt and try not to be so concerned about the level of difficulty or the changes Blizzard has made. Otherwise, please leave and we'll look forward to ignoring your same complaints the day after Cataclysm comes out.
(Wow – that was really saucy! What I mean to say is: if you are bored and unhappy, why are you still playing?)
Class Roles: Everyone is important, mmkay?
