Every week, Blog Azeroth proposes a Shared Topic for World of Warcraft bloggers to discuss. This week’s topic was proposed by Arvash.
In the new Mist of Pandaria expansion, Druids will be getting a new spell called Symbiosis, which will allow them to “trade” a spell with another player, based on the player’s class and combat role and the Druid’s specialization.
So my question is, if you could have any spell you want from any other class, current spells or new ones in MoP, what would it be? How would you work it into your rotation, gameplay, etc.?
At first, this seemed like a difficult one because I couldn’t think of anything I really wanted. Luckily, Mooglegem pointed out that I was being stupid, and suddenly I couldn’t decide because there were so many!
First, let’s say that I’m thinking about Battlegrounds for all of these. I know I’m a raider, but during raids, I have a team. There is no single spell that I really need. During BGs, I’m sometimes (often) alone. And when I’m not alone, I feel alone if I’m playing with people who aren’t sure what to do.
Blink would be useful. Turning into a bear would also be useful. Lust would be cool, I suppose. I’d really like to drop totems; I don’t particularly want the buffs, but I really like the idea of having totems from an in-character perspective. I can’t tell why. They’re so iconic!
Okay, I suppose I’m not really choosing. Here goes. There’s a part of me, realistically, that really wants Mana Burn back. It’s so odd not to Mana Burn enemy healers! But the question was about spells from other classes not other specs. I guess I’d like to bubble in BGs! Give me Divine Shield!
Ooooh, but Ring of Frost is fun too!
Last week’s topic was proposed by akabeko.
Canon refers to the actual events and characters that exist in a fictional world. Headcanon refers to any situations or characters that are imagined by fans of said fictional world. Sometimes they are silly, like the fact that Garrosh’s favorite treat is lemon squares. Sometimes they are serious, like positing that tauren store grief in the lungs. For my writing, I’ve come up with a lot of headcanon. Got a theory about a torrid romance between your favorite auctioneer and the patrolling guard? Given any thought to where mounts and pets go when they aren’t summoned? Do you know how your characters do their laundry, or what Baine Bloodhoof does in his free time? What are your headcanons, and where did you get the idea?
As the topic proposer, it’s no surprise akabeko posted a great response! Sometimes it only takes a single post for me to add a blog to my Google Reader, and this is one of those times. Boss Mida likes steamy romance novels? Goblins, dwarves, and pandaren prefer being fat? Goblins develop a taste for blood elf lifestyle? Great!
Faye has a great piece on the Dancing Tree that includes the idea that Azeroth is actually much bigger and that travel takes much longer. I tend to agree on those points! A post on New WoW Veteran posits that there are secret rogue mailmen that ensure your mail is always at he closest mailbox to you. Genius!
