Someone in a battleground said that all elves are cliche, and that all elves, especially druids, bought their characters. Since my 70s are a bloodelf paladin and a nightelf druid, I just laughed and asked if I could sell my account.
Last night I took my 70 paladin into Ironforge, got the coin from the elder, jumped on the tram to Stormwind and went out into Elwynn, saluting General Marcus Jonathan as I rode by. He did not
salute me back, but he also didn't kill me, the way Thrall did my nightelf.
I actually find it quite amusing that I have a bloodelf paladin. I didn't even like paladins, although I had started one early on that I let lapse. I certainly never planned to play one to 70. And I really wanted to play a draenei male, not a bloodelf female. But because I liked my guild, I ended up leveling my bloodelf. Now I have a hard time playing my druid. I thought I would hate healing as a paladin since their spells are so limited and I'm used to a full resto druid, but who cares. Less thought that way, I can shield and heal, do my consecration and holy shock, stay alive for a long time while people try and kill me. And in instances, I just do my big heals all the time, and if I get aggro, oh well. I've got 12,000 armor and sometimes more HP than the tank. And goodness knows I could never keep aggro when I was the tank, so yeah, woo hoo, I can finally get it! LOL, actually, I usually don't get aggro very much, and as soon as I start to fight, I lose it again. But at least I am not crushed.
I'd still like a priest, however.
