I occasionally indulge in being a ret paladin.
It’s fun, a different sort of game from what I’m used to, and (if I’m honest with myself) a lot less thought. Icecrown is more ranged friendly, and I’m a tank-healer, so I rarely get to do deeps in raids, but it /is/ fun. So I have a decent set of ret gear, and it’s gemmed and (mostly) enchanted. And I’ve got a really substantial weapon out of ICC-10, so I’m pretty happy with my ability to not be a waste of a raid spot if I go DPS.
Of course, occasionally very strange things happen.
Strange things like “All the melee DPS in the raid already have their Shadows’ Edge materials” and “We just killed Festergut, who wants the Acidic Blood?”
Which prompts the following discussion between my husband and I in vent.
“…Whoa. So I think that means one of us is up for these blood drops.”
“Yeah, but it’s a lot less likely that I’ll get to go ret for any of this content. You already get to smack stuff around sometimes.”
At which point a few other people in vent chimed in:
“Yeah it really sucks to tank ICC and get 0 souls over a night because you didn’t actually have the weapon equipped!”
“… you know, it’d be pretty hilarious to see Anna running around looking for more souls.”
So…uhhh… Anyone got any saronite?
