I talked with some friends on my Real ID. Most of these friends are old guildmates from back in Vanilla WoW. People I first stepped foot into Molten Core with as well as raided 15man UBRS. These were the same people that ran me through instances when I was lower to help me level up and become a raider with them. Especially since there was only like 2 horde druids on the server at the time.
The discussion became a conversation, bringing about 5 people in to the mix. We talked about Cata, how things have changed over the years for us. But a major thing came up was my blog. Two of my old guildmates apparently watch my blog to see what I am doing. They explained to me however how they couldn't see me going Troll Female.
I couldn't understand why, so I asked them to explain how they couldn't. They quickly gave up all the reasons I original rolled a Female Tauren Druid.
1) I dislike Night Elves
2) I love cows (Huge cow collector..LEAVE ME ALONE)
3) The female Tauren Tail memorizes me and I had problems trying to level alts in Vanilla if it wasn't a Tauren
4) I enjoy being tall because I'm short IRL (srs)
The list continues on and on. I asked them what they would like me to do since I do get displeased with how Female Tauren look in some gear. How I don't play with game sound on because Female Tauren's laugh is pretty..Bad. As well as I feel there needs to be more to it.
But you know what? They kept pounding me about the issue. So I ended up making a list; Dislikes of Female Tauren VS Female Troll. Guess who won? Female Troll! Female Troll had about twice as much as Female Tauren with dislikes. Here is the chart I made during the conversation with them. And yes, alot of it is cosmetic, but I love the Lore from both standpoints..so yeah. Also, I did facepalm myself after I made this.
The main thing with Tauren is I won't be min/maxed. My guild is huge on it. But at the same time, I'm not min/maxed on my professions either. I'm an enchanter/Jc'er. I have several old world patterns I worked hard to get and I rather not lose them. If I drop anything; it would be Jc'ing for Eng. But it would be a waste as JCing/Eng are the best for Cata. So I'll just be sticking with what I got. Especially since the guild needs an Enchanter anyway.
So, I'm more than likely going to be myself and just staying Tauren. I like to be different. Its why I rolled a Tauren druid in the first place. I mean, in Vanilla. There was like 50 NE druids, 2 horde druids on my server. I was rare, and needed. Which I liked. Now adays, servers have millions of druids. So I'm not very original anymore. With Troll Druids coming. Most people will be going troll. Even some tanks. Min/Maxing pure tanks may stay Tauren though. Hard to say.
So now I'm like. "FUCK" cause I wanna stay Tauren but I still want troll for Min/Maxing.
Someone stab me in the eye please?
