Dancing with myself...

Mat in Baradin Hold last night: Death Knight drank Potion of Illusion to look like her: but Mat's one-of-a-kind...

Wonderful post on leveling an enhancement shaman: full of the complexities and intricacies that make up Mat: http://psynister.wordpress.com/2011/03/29/shaman-leveling-1-29-enhancement/#comment-3148

The point is made that enhancement shamans are similar to Death Knights: maybe that explains why Mataoka's doppelganger Morphemia sits fixed at level 74.5: Mat's human just doesn't have the stamina to level another complicated character at the moment. She just needed some pew-pew with her hunter* or spam-aids on a lower level healer. She knows it gets much more complicated, every class has its nuances and dare she say: culture?

There have been a few tears shed when Mat's human thinks why-oh-why did she begin playing with a enhancement shaman? The learning curve has been really steep. Mountain-goat-hoof-steep. She just didn't know any better. Thus the ignorance of noobs.

They say there are no accidents. Mat's human is not so sure about that. Maybe..there are? Anyway, chaos, string or relativity theories aside - shrug - perhaps Mat was not this human's first character without some cosmic play. Mat's human is also: complex, known for the occasional short-burst rage, dual-hemi-wields, hybrid-dynamic chassis 4.8...oh wait. No. That's her truck. Nevermind. In any case, the human shares many traits with this shaman. Stand clear of her magma AoE when there is an injustice or if she just needs to call shenanigans on some bull. But keep close to her when she showers a healing rain over you. She always does what she can to make things better.

And that laugh*. The only difference between Mat's and her human's is her human's goes on longer, and a bit louder...but still ladylike.

*That's right, boys: Baradin Hold. Piece of Mana Cake. 
*And BELIEVE ME - she knows how complicated hunters can be too - hers just isn't there yet.
*This is a female Draenei thing, not a shaman thing.

    Silly Death Knight trying to be a Shaman. "Where's your spirit wolves, buddy!? Huh!? HUH!?!? That's what I thought. /howl"

  2. Wolves > ghouls and smell slightly better, too. Same amount of fleas?
