I’m probably not the first one to observe this, but has anyone noticed that Ret Pallies are the primary source of Mage QQ? I’m serious!
The largest group of people yelling that mages need nerfs? Ret Paladins. All those threads that start with “mages are overpowered” or “arcane is OP”? Nearly all of them started by a Ret Paladin or a Ret Paladin’s alt.
Occasionally, a warlock or a warrior, or even a hunter, will show up and cry, but most of them are Ret Paladins.
Is there some sort of weird logic where Ret Pallies think that they’re forum avatar will confuse people? It does look very similar to a mage’s avatar, and an untrained eye could easily miss the distinction. Even the symbol doesn’t really help. A glowing stick with a knobby bit on the end or a glowing stick with a somewhat larger knobby bit on the end.
If you’re ever in doubt, the Ret Paladins will be the ones screaming for the mage class to be nerfed. Occasionally, you’ll see a mage calling for nerfs; don’t be alarmed, this is merely a Ret Paladin in a clever disguise.
Why the hate? Why the spewing of bile?
What did we mages ever do to you?
I mean, in raiding, I get that it’s sort of a one sided relationship. Y’all offer us Replenishment, a Blessing, and some seriously kick ass debuffs. All we can offer in return is food and transportation.
Is it PvP? Are Ret Paladins sick of getting wtfpwnd by mages all the time? If it’s this, there’s a whole lot of Paladins out there who need some quality time with a reflective surface.
In all seriousness, what is up with this? It’s as prevalent as mages complaining about warlocks last expansion.
There are two Death Knights in Stay Frosty.
No, no, there are much more than two, but I’m talking about two specific ones.
So, these two Death Knights are brothers. There In Real Life names are “Vince” and “Tony”.
Think about that. Death Knights. Named Vince and Tony. They are family.
Now, I don’t know about you, but my brain had a little anuerism at the thought of a Death Knight mafia.
Just think of that dead, hollow voice saying: “It’s a big woild, ya know; tings get broken. Yer gear, yer arm… yeh could use some protect’n, ‘s’all ahm’ sayin'”
Imagine the sheer terror you’d experience if two guys, Vince and Gutripper, showed up at your door.
I mean, Vince is perfectly willing to boil your freaking blood as a hobby. You don’t even want to know what Gutripper wants to do. (Hint – it has something to do with his name.)
I’m just saying, if the Lich King abandoned this whole “annihilate the world” thing and started up a protection racket, he could be pretty damn successful.
Really, are you going to refuse someone who can arrange for your children to be eaten by zombies?
If you’re wondering “What the hell is up with this blog’s strange post titles?”, I can explain!
Whenever I can’t think of an appropriate title, I simply use a phrase or sentence that was said/typed that day.
Today’s example is when, while cooking, a family member grabbed a paper towel in order to clean up a small spill on the stovetop.
However, aforementioned paper towel was on fire. Hence the question, “Why is this on fire?”
