Open Libram XCII: Warriors of Faith

Greetings and welcome to the 92nd installment of the Open Libram! The perfectly grilled alternative to Mangle/Sentry Totem and Tank Lounge!

In these threads, we talk about everything Paladin. Some cool. Some lame. Some information dangerous. Got that question that you're kind of afraid to make a new thread about, or just tired of getting trolled on Trade Chat? Ask it here for a more personal response.

So Blood Elves, get your hair ready, Draenei and Tauren clean off your hooves. Dwarves, the nearest alcohol is to your left for your enjoyment and Humans... well do whatever it is you do that keeps you alive. Or stuff.

Enjoy! Have fun everyone!

Took me 3 attempts to get Illidan .. then aimed at Thrall and oh boy, he destroyed me. :(

Vlad says the full luscious beard on my dwarf form not only rivals Grog's beard, but surpasses it. What say ye, full-time dwarf?


I say he needs to be chucked in the looney bin. I mean, really, how the hell would he know? He's just as bald-faced as any of the rest of your tree-hugging, surface-dwelling hippies.

There's something charming about FFXIV that I can't put my finger on. It's got a few flaws (you're required to do the storyline to unlock everything, DPS queues suck like in most MMOs, all dungeons are required at least once in the story, some UI snaggles, could use a more streamlined map, tanking feels like tanking back in the Vanilla days...) but it's got its charms, too. From the get-go, dungeons require some attention, especially for tanks, but for some reason, and maybe this is just from that "New MMO Smell", it's really, really enjoyable. Not to mention, everything can be done on one character as opposed to making an army of alts...you even get your own mules down the road, so inventory never, ever becomes an issue, even when gearing 8-ish different classes.

But the main thing I'm loving about it? Peel away from the low level HURR zones and there's a megaton of people getting through the game and actively helping each other out, calling out active time events for XP parties or going out of their way to rez you if it's available and you're in need. There's a level of cooperation and friendliness I haven't seen in a long time, and while I'm making no comparisons to WoW at all (they both share some flaws with community and gameplay...besides which, I plan on playing both-ish <_<), I have to say, this game feels like a breath of fresh air sometimes. Especially from the toxicity of LFR.

Maybe it's just me. I just hope it lasts past the new MMO honeymoon phase, because really, they did something special when they rebooted this game. Square Enix restored my faith for sure.

Mule, do you mean Illidan during the introductory quests right at the start?

Yea, Illidan is the last npc you fight in the intro Hearthstone tutorial

Quick question, I currently have a raid finder Ji-Kun Feather, would it be better to keep the feather over a raid finder Spark of Zandalar if I obtain one?

Ask yourself if you need the extra expertise or hit more. Should answer that for you

First off, you don't have a beard; that little scrap of fur is laughable at best.

Also, Dwarves are a very clean people, I'll have you know! People only normally see us when we're working or fighting - and those are all dirty jobs!

If "styled" means "lost a fight with a weed whacker," sure, okay.

Uh-huh. Careful you don't chip a nail, there, bub.

Yar. It's the first time I've played any sort of card game like this, so I'm very unfamiliar with strategies, etc.

Gotta admit, it was kind of sad how easy the computer controlled Paladin deck was to defeat with both the Mage and Warrior decks.

But it's Friday for those people on the awesome side of the world (where we aren't living in the past) so I'll have a weekend of Hearthstone to play in ~9 hours.

@Muletia - At least that standard is in keeping with what happens when a bad paladin duels a good mage or warrior. ;p (my goodness warriors hit hard)

Also within a month I too shall be joining you on what is apparently the awesome side of the world. At least with the slight delay I won't miss 5.4 dropping, so maybe I won't be as hideously behind as I previously thought I would be.

In other news, still packing - trying to decide what I should junk and what I should keep. Going to toss all my old sketchbooks and college art, I think. I don't need things I made ten years ago for assignments that I didn't even care about at the time, and I certainly don't need my Old Bad Art from when I was 19.

Hippies?? Don't compare our superior beauty to those smelly dirt-worshiping night elves.


The superior elf race is the Night Elves
