For the record, I’m usually not a douche in-game…or in real life, but mostly not in-game. I try to just play right, do what everyone else is doing, et cetera. For example, in WSG, if everyone is fighting mid, I might try to grab the opponent’s flag once or twice, but that usually doesn’t work.
This morning, I queued for WSG on my little pally healer, Veredus (Wrymrest Accord). I like being a holy paladin, I always did, and so these new changes have inspired me to try it out again just to see how I like it. Wow, the douchebaggery!
First of all, I have two ways to get Holy Power– Crusader Strike and Holy Shock. Holy Shock has a six-second cooldown on it. At level 17, I have three heals: Holy Shock, Holy Light, and Word of Glory. See, in order to use Word of Glory, I kind of have to have Holy Power. The easy way to get Holy Power is to (CHA-CHING) melee with Crusader Strike! Someone in a dungeon made a snarky comment about it, and I ignored it. But hey, I don’t have Flash of Light yet, so naturally I’m Crusader-Striking it up to get Holy Power to use Word of Glory– which is mana-free, by the way, so very useful in a pinch!
But I digress. I’m a healer, and people are always QQing in battlegrounds. “WHAR MAH HEALZ?!” Well, fine, now you’ve got your heals!
I love it when a level 10-14 complains in the 10-19 WSG bracket about how people are playing. Go grab the flag? Well, maybe it’d be easier to grab the flag if HALF OF THE TEAM WASN’T UNDER LEVEL 15!*
*As I said in a previous entry, I don’t care that people are queueing on the low-end of the bracket. That’s your prerogative. But if you feel the need to bitch and moan about how the game is being played? Kindly GTFO and level up to 16-19 and then come back. I guarantee you’ll have 100x the luck in WSG with a team consisting of level 17-19 instead of people who are mostly 10-14. Just sayin’. So it really, really rubs the the wrong way to be told how to play by someone who is a level 12 rogue. Yeah, I’m a healer? A 17 healer who has VERY LITTLE HEALTH. Just noticing that I get easily killed in my cloth robes and such. My job is to heal, not grab the flag. So if nobody ELSE is going for the flag, I can’t heal them. ALSO, I can’t heal your level 12 ass through anything because YOU are also getting two-shot.
