So What's the Warrior Equivalent of a Huntard?

Meh. I don't like this post, now that I reads it. Too cranky and mean. So I takes it down.

UPDATE: nobody's gotta worry about theyselves. I just saw a level 70 warrior wearing a strange (in me mind) mix of expensive crafted tanking gear with dps shoulders, and then when I looked more close he were carrying a "of Intellect" mace. I thought this were pretty bizarre, but the fact that I were grumpy about completely unrelated stuff made me post come out sounding mean and harsh instead of entertaining, and I don't like to be that way.

That's all.

Maybe he was trying to level his weapon skill?

Ratshag said...

Hmmm. I concedes the possibility. But a scroll of intellect would be a lot cheaper.

sonvar said...

Might be for the best you took it down. I say you bring out the clown suit outfit again and put that pic in it instead.

Bell said...

Well...your blog title does say you "Need More Rage"...

Rhoelyn said...

No fair. :( Now I wanna know what the Warrior equivalent of a Huntard is.

Dang. I missed it.

"Too cranky and mean"? No such thing from you. You get cranky and mean, you have a reason. Me, now, I just get nasty on principle. *leer*

Misneach said...

Yeah, Rhoelyn, I'm sorry I missed it, too. Part of me is concerned that there might be a new member of team Ratshag on Bloodhoof who caught me doing something stupid then posted about it O.O

... Ratshag uses anger management wisely! Excelent use of talent points Ratty, btw been a troll here for a little bit now, and I love your blog, I now check it daily. Thanks for the laughs.

There's really no equivalent phrase though... Hunter just rolls into Huntard so easily.

I always just say that those are the warriors with mittens attached to their sleeves. ALL YEAR ROUND.

Gauntlet said...

Actually, Fightard is pretty good, if you wanted to go for tweaking a synonym.

For the dumb warriors, I like to refer to them as Donald. All, of course, in reference to the WoW comics at darklegacy.com. Check the archives and you'll know what I mean.

Aboo said...

Point of order. You're an orc with a friggin big axe. People expects ya to be mean! No need to post name/locations or anything but I digress.

I also agree with taking it down, as there are 1001 "this guy is such an idiot posts" already.

For that beastly Thunderclap, y'know.

I love the fact that you can inspect from longer distance, and look at talents. I've sent more huntards than I can count to BRK for the awesome advice and for the suggestions he offers on how to be a better hunter. Is there a resource for warriors like that?

I totally understand the frustration with players that don't know how to play their class. When I rolled a new char, a mage, I did as much research as I could to understand the class mechanics, roles, and abilities, and decided that I'd go frost for the improved survivablity, and crowd control since I'd always be in a group.

I did the research, which is the key thing. Yes it is just a game, but with this game other people (if you want to play with other people that is) are effected by your descions, and I don't like people thinking I'm an idiot, so I devote a little effort and time into being the best player I can be.

But that's just me!

The answer of your post's title is a simple one: Crushtinie. The warrior equivalent of a huntard.

(( People wearing innappropriate gear can be entirely intentional, as odd as it sounds. I know of Protection warrior on my server who was being asked repeatedly to tank various instances by random people due to a lack of available tanks at the time. While it was great when he was first getting geared up, now he finds that he's being looked up on the Armory and being asked to join arguably lower instances that don't benefit him any more and it's irksome when it happens multiple times a day. He now chooses to wear an all Intellect set around town and will log off in that set so that it's on the Armory.

His reasoning? If his gear sucks and people are asking him to join based on his Armory profile, Intellect gear would deter those people. And, y'know, it's worked!

As a somewhat competant healing priest, I feel his pain; my only notable upgrades right now (aside from some of the 2.4 badge vendor stuff which hasn't been obtained on my server yet) are in T5 and above raids, but I have people who either look at my gear or look my name up on the Armory and then whisper me randomly to see if I'd heal something that probably wouldn't benefit me at all. And while I love helping people, getting asked six or seven times a day by complete strangers is a bit annoying.

As an avid roleplayer, however, I'm partial to helping people who ask in character. Fortunately (unfortunately?), not too many people do that these days. ))
