Alright folks lets hear em. Confessions about anything related to WoW. Could be anything from lore to RP experiences to questing embarrassments.

I'll start with mine

I actually still like Garrosh Hellscream and have that awesome wallpaper of him on the throne glaring at me kratos style. I've always loved bad guys and Garrosh rubs me the right way, he feels like an Orc and while I have resigned myself to his death he shall still be remembered on my desktop.

Note that is a totally OOC approval, my toons IC almost universally despise him, but what can I say..

I loved Mengsk and I love Garrosh.
Varian Wrynn has been my favorite character since the Ulduar trailer. During Wrath I'm pretty sure I was the only one that liked him on the entire server.

Well considering that thread isnt on the front page anymore I apologize for not seeing it..

But post anyway!
No worries! Just thought I would bring it to your attention!

I've no objections; post away.
No reason we can't have two posts, it's good for the brain to get things off your chest. Even though they're in two different places, and separated by your neck.

I'll help:

I honestly find goblins unappealing and a little gross. Something about them really bothers me, and I feel sort of bad but at the same time I also don't (sorry goblins).

Might it be the hairstyles? It's sort of what squicks me from wanting to play one myself, though I've really, really tried to.
I thought I could survive a guildy putting up the Ancient Portal: Dalaran after raid one night.

I WAS WRONG

I think it's a combination of their voices (one of the voice sets for the NPCs literally makes me grit my teeth every time I accidentally click on him) and their faces. And ears. And malformed little bodies. They're basically like the worst combination of a gremlin and a ferengi with the face of Blix from Legend. I feel like they should smell really bad too.

AGAIN I AM SORRY GOBLIN PLAYERS IT'S NOT PERSONAL.
I wiped on ToT trash.
I feel bad when I play alts and then feel bad about feeling bad.

This too.

I'm an elitist and I have little patience for characters that break established lore like Bane broke the Bat.
I got burned out on raiding in my old guild.
Despite that Horde is my favorite faction, both for WoW and playing in WC3, I don't like orcs.

I don't know why, and this was long before Garrosh was seen in game in TBC. Tauren and trolls were more interesting to me.

You know, I used to really like them a lot, but I think I started burning out on orcs around WotLK.
I can't be bothered to learn the histories of the various races enough to rp them 'competently' because what I have read I've loathed. I don't mean a little bit, I mean a lot. I mean we're talking I read the lore and go 'wtf were you thinking, this is godawful'.

To be fair, I also don't like tolkien so I'm not exactly coming from a stance of someone who's real in love with this type of storyline to begin with. But every time some new 'twist' comes out it really just feels like pandering to the masses rather then trying to write a genuinely interesting story. Sort of like writing a soap opera. It's why when you do see me rp I never refer to past events and keep my character very much in the present and focused on things like... the battle they just got out of. Or the animal they just fought. Etc. Anything but some epic recount of the lore... which a LOT of rpers tend to do. Instead of focusing on their characters they go into big contests of 'who knows the lore more and can make witty references to it the most' instead of just.. building a story with your character based in the here and now.

/end grumbly rant moment.
I sometimes miss being a Blood Elf Rogue, but I think that's mostly because of the good times I had back in WotLK.

I know it's because of the googles. Every time I read one of your posts I hear it in Dogbert's voice.
Sometimes i want to race change back to a belf, and rp as old Sevon again.
For some reason I think it would be hilarious to roll a male Forsaken DK, get him high enough to grind for Telaari Polearm, and once I have it run around pretending to be Death from the Discworld books.

Not as a srs roleplay thing, just for a good laugh or ten.
