In the interest of educating my guildies and friends, I have decided a post is long overdue on the differences between Mages and Warlocks. Since, y’know, we are so hard to tell apart!
|Summon their powers from the Nether… or somewhere else sufficiently evil and awesome.||Summon their powers from Carebear land. I think. I’m pretty sure there are flowers and cupcakes.|
|Have kick ass minions that also look evil and awesome. They also have scary sounding abilities like ‘Shadow Bite’.||Probably don’t have minions. Unless they have a Squirtle. Those things are more amusing than intimidating – “I’m going to get you marginally wet! Squirt!”|
|Are tough enough to kill themselves if it’s absolutely necessary. Who else would have the balls to set themselves on fire?||Use a variety of sneaky, wimpy tricks such as Invisibility and Ice Block.|
|Make awesome green healthstones that make the raid smile. Don’t ask why they are green…||Make excessive strudel. Which lacks tastiness.|
|Throw around a lot of fire and shadowy doom in an impressive display of power.||Throw one of the following: weird purple shit that you’d expect to see coming from a fairy; fire that is infinitely more pathetic looking than my own; stupid frost things that logically SHOULD melt.
That is, if they aren’t being wimpy and casting Ice Block or something. Or Blinking away from the fight.
Seriously, how hard is it to tell? If it’s not awesome, it’s not a ‘lock.
P.S. In other news, last night after a semi-drunken escapade to the pub, I made an alt in Miss Medicina’s version of the new blogging related guild Single Abstract Noun. I don’t know how I will go with levelling (I’m kinda fail at that), but it should be fun. I had a fantastic time going through all the names to see which bloggers I could identify. Krizzlybear also helped me come up with a great name for my baby Warlock – Sarcolepsy! Whoo hoo!Tags: Awesome, Mage, Warlock
