Hannelore over at The Egotistical Priest hates Warlocks. Really, I don’t find this to be that big a deal – Priests often strike me as being our natural opposites, committed (in most cases) to exploring the opposite side of magic and using it for, well… completely different purposes. I’ll admit to sniffling a little, but I soon bucked up and realised that I actively encourage people to dislike me! My plan is actually working!
Of course, I myself have a class which I hate beyond all others. One which I would gladly see wiped off the face of Azeroth. My merriest dreams have been visions of their kind collapsing under some deadly strain, with myself hopping about amongst the survivors and cackling mercilessly as I delivered the final death blow in the shape of a painful, slow, unbearable DoT. A field full of shiny dead Paladins.
Paladins just creep me out. Plain and simple. Between their constant proclaiming of ‘For the Light!’, their irritatingly shiny armor, and their outright goody two shoes behaviour… uuuurgh *shudders*.
Not to mention that THEIR suicide seems to be socially acceptable! Only Paladins could turn it into an act of kindness. Makes me want to puke on their shiny boots (which are truly only kept shiny so they can check themselves out in their reflection). Not to mention, they only ever seem to cast the damn thing on OTHER Paladins! Selfish buggers.
Paladins have bugged me from the very first time I played. A class who can DPS, Tank and Heal? All at once?!?! AND they get to wear plate! Honestly, I did not envy the Horde one bit in not being able to have Paladins. Not exactly missing much. I believed that most Paladins would be unskilled, irritating children who rolled the class that could do everything because they were afraid of being smooshed by monsters. Turns out most 12 year olds play Rogues, but a fair amount of them are also lolret Pallies.
Oh… lolret. What other class in the game as an entire talent tree dedicated to making people collapse into fits of giggles every time they see it? Perhaps Blizzard was on to something there after all. Of course, they don’t make me laugh any where near as hard in PvP, where it turns out they have their magic ‘haha you can’t touch me!‘ shield, and then they proceed to murder me while I can not cast a single thing. Damn hammers!
The creepiest thing of all though? Lay on Hands. If a stinky Pally EVER dares to lay his hands on me he will be smacked through to next week.
Sure, Warlocks may be the emo class of WoW. Honestly though, wouldn’t you much rather hang out with a complaining yet intriguing Warlock instead of a do gooder, ‘For the Light’ chanting Pally?
