In deciding upon the character who will be the Azerothian Explorer, many questions had to be answered.
In order to answer these questions properly, some background is required.
In Vanilla, I played Horde initially, then due to a lack of people playing in my time zone, swapped to Alliance. With the advent of Oceanic Servers, I returned to Horde.
In terms of classes, I have max level Hunter, Shaman, Death Knight, Paladin, and Mage. I also have a level 85 Warlock. I have recently swapped mains from Mage to Paladin (Protection with Retribution Offspec) and couldn’t be happier.
So how does this impact our future star?
Well, as you can see, I have only ever seen Alliance questing in Vanilla, so I kinda feel like I pay this money, and don’t get to see everything. So I have decided Alliance is the way to go.
Secondly, I want to play a class that will be strong solo-ing a range of content, including group quests, and have fast queues for Dungeons. A paladin seems to fit that. Also, I do worry that when I play different classes, I don’t play my main as well, so that makes it an easier decision too.
Now since we know we are going Alliance Paladin, what race? I personally find Humans boring, so that rules them out. I do love dwarves, but not necessarily as Paladins. I have always liked Draenei, so I have decided on that race. And I have chosen a Male. (My current main is a Blood Elf Female, so its meant to be a bit of an opposite to her).
Now in terms of appearance, I had a look at the Burning Crusade Cinematic and have tried to make a Paladin that resembles the one seen there. What do you think?
