Disciplinary actions two posts (dunno how i'd ever missed em in the first place) on twitter-wow'icons or Twiwowcons as I call em... in my head, when all the voices only whisper to me... Ehh..
HERE are the Icons
And they are just adorable. And cute. And then I get to my class Icon.. which is. Ehh which one is it?
Oh Right, imma shaman now.
And well. Ehm
Please don't get me wrong. I really dig her (your avatar is a female nelf, so you are an her. Deal w'it... ALSO Night elf priests? Please. Dwarf priests are the only priests. I'll sponsor a race-change. Once you go shorty you'll never go a-courting.. for another race!)
Whats in a class
The thing about the shaman avatar is two things. one: totems... They don't really play that big a role anymore do they? So I guess the crying one is really fitting. But for me, I don't miss totems. AT ALL. The reason I didnt like shamans playstyle was partly due to those damn totems.
And well. maybe that is it. I just dont have all that much love for totems, so I am not connecting with the avatars.
Or maybe it's the class? I still have my viking LEGO as my avatar. Because once upon a time, it fitted really well with my dwarf death knight (whom the old blog was named after). Before that, I had a dwarf priest (you know... the *real* priest!!) And whenever I see images like this:
But when I see dwarf Shaman pictures... I just wish that dwarf druid would shapeshift!
On top of that (or perhaps because of this) I just cannot see myself as a shaman. I was a librarian who turned into a dwarven priest at night. Later I was a librarian who turned into a dwarf Death knight. And lately I was turned into a beer loving monk dwarf.
The Shaman. Not so much. yet.
I love playing the class in game. I just hope that I'll learn to embrace the class too. For now. The cute and fantastic class Icons, made me realise that I am an class-main-less wow-player. And that made me sad.
