A couple new things have come to light in the past few days that are making me think (and rethink) my position on leveling my “main” in Warlords. The real problem is, my main is my trusted protection paladin, Oxxo. He has been first to level cap in Wrath, Cataclysm and Mists. He goes out and does the dirty work and makes the 2nd time around easier for my alts. With the new hunter pets and the limited time raid and battleground for WoW’s 10th anniversary though, I’m not sure I want him for those.
First of all, he can’t tame any pets. Second of all, I’m not too great at paladin melee. Lastly, I suck at PvP with a paladin. Which brings me to this dilemma. Now, I have a hunter. I have several actually. I can PvP on them decently and dungeons and raids are easier for me on ranged classes. I was thinking of taking my lock through first for Warlords, simply because he is my “rep toon”. I am currently working on getting all the reps on him (note: I will probably never do Hydraxian Waterlords or Ravenholdt).
I have to get over the emotional attachment and the manufactured loyalty I have built up for this character. Which is hard, because Oxxo is, in essence, my virtual self. Or at least one of them. My hunter is part of me too, and a dwarf. It makes sense though. I can quickly pew-pew all the things, level up, hit the raid and BG and get the loots. I might not even feel that guilty. Heck, I will be riding a corehound and having a talbuk and/or clefthoof by my side!
So what will you do? Stick with the main you have always been leveling with or level up a different character for Warlords? Feel free to leave your answer in the comments below!
