One Toon to Rule them All

Originally uploaded by alachia

After declaring my shaman as my main for WoTLK, I've been extremely satisfied with the results. Yes, I miss my druid a lot and yes I miss the aspect of playing other classes at end game.

However, there has been nothing worse than having to start at ground zero with a character's history for me. Especially when it comes to having keys for instances or not having a flightpath or my favorite unique pets. There are so many things about the history of your character and gameplay that you would have liked to carry with you.

For example, on my shaman, I don't even have the bloody Karazhan key although I have it on FOUR other toons! It is also frustrating as all hell knowing I have two AWESOME unique pets on my priest that I can't pull out while I'm playing now. I even had to go back and kill trash in ZA just so I could get mojo AGAIN!

Needless to say, I'm all for the idea of having one character now that has ONE history. Yes, it comes at the great sacrifice of not being able to play classes you might like on a regular basis. But if it means I don't have to go get attuned to some daily quest in the Outlands just to complete a holiday quest, it might be worth it.

Another great perk to having ONE main toon is that your gold becomes more concentrated so you can splurge on things like a mekgineer chopper :D

And yesterday, I was doing the fishing daily from Shat (trying to get find fish) and I got Snarly from the quest reward!! I was so excited as it was a pet I really wanted back in TBC. A baby croc is just the cutest thing ever...almost as cute as the baby panda.

I guess I'm just going to have to learn to love being a space goat shammy forever. Losing yet another adorable pet would be heart breaking. It still pangs me a ton I never get to see my baby gorilla and baby hippogryph. *sniff*

I did a similar thing in Wrath by making my Death Knight my main as opposed to the paladin I'd spent all my time on in BC. I had 3k achievement points on the paladin before Wrath hit, was attuned to all manner of ridiculous things, I've even got both bindings for making a Thunderfury.

Its hard to shelve that kind of history but its nice to know that you made the right decision.
