I thought you were a Goblin... O_o


So 2012.

I was on Mal'Ganis as an Goblin, then race changed Orc, then went to Kel'Thuzad as a Worgen.

I really don't like worgen at all though, just for racials.

I played a tank in the 'wrath of the lich king' days. I was up there with gear and so and so.

I guess these stereotypes go back all the way when DK's was introduced. They were OP, they were bad !@# and people were button bashing without knowing the runes. Pretty much everyone wanted to be a DK.

Seems that people can't get that stereotype out of their head.

I get the odd "OMG IT'S A DK TANK, OMG......." When I get that, I leave the instance and they can wait another 10 minutes. For me as a tank, I only wait 1 second to get into an instance :)

Warriors, Priests and Warlocks are the only classes i know without a bad stereotype really.

The stereotype that DKs are all horrible and were chosen only because they are a 'shadow warrior' hero class is still very much alive and well. The only problem is that like most other stereotypes it's false.

I'd say shamans too but no one plays them.

Male Draenei DK that is just abusolutely horrible at the game
I was a male draenei for the longest time and I didn't have any problems. I usually topped the meters and other whatnot.

Monks don't have a stereotype because they haven't been in the game long


So far I've yet to see a good brewmaster. They all seem too drunk to play and/or figure out their class. I refused to heal a brewmaster in raids.

Rogue: Played by a bunch of pricks, take no skill and can only get kills by ganking.


No skill? Try playing one and then repeat that comment.

Mage: Has a three button rotation, dps !@#$%, ignores mechanics no one likes him but he's valuable to the raid so you can't get rid of him.


Lol more than 3 buttons to actually play them well. Watch a stream of a 2200+ mage then repeat that comment.

You're statements are stupid and invalid.

Warrior: ME ANGRY!!! ME SMASH!!!


Only one I agree with.


You know selective quoting is fraught with danger. Let me elaborate with the power of selective quoting:

Just to clarify, I do not think these things about these class, I'm just pointing out the prevalent stereotypes.
