For whatever reason I just can't seem to play correctly.
Good players would be farming or running heroics or something productive, I'm flying around Kalimdor with a new sombrero. When good guilds were in BT I was trying to PUG MC. Good players bring flasks to raids, the closest I can remember bringing are empty bottles and a character too drunk to see. Actually I can't remember doing that, but with drunkenness lack of proof is a form of proof.
Other people spend thousands of gold on the best enchants and surge needle rings while I buy elementium ore. While others ran around freely grinding Loremaster of Kalimdor I used a cloaking device to sneak past guards because I saw a neutral quest giver inside. Other people get epic crafted hats while I have a pirate hat stuffed in the bank.
My bags contain two level 60 weapons, both entirely useless now, except I sometimes use one. There are also three level 70 trinkets, plus a boomerang and an Onyxia scale cloak, just in case.
Other people post useful information about paladins with cool names that reference the class. My blog speculates on unlikely future lore and the most useful information I have is that with the right trinkets you can tank without pants and still hit the defense cap. The name apparently confuses people.
I must interrupt this post to express my anger that Firefox thinks pantless isn't a word.
I'm still an engineer. I was a shockadin before the spec even existed. When all the shamans were tauren, I was a troll.
Now I must go figure out how to improve my goblin rep. Somehow I am honored with Ratchet and hated with all the rest. Apparently good reputations don't travel as far as I'd hope.
