Well, here we are. April 1. April Fools’ Day. I suppose this is the time now where I’m supposed to post some semi-plausible joke post…y’know, something like, say, “I’ve decided to move all my characters off of Feathermoon to a PvP server, change Linedan from a Tauren Prot warrior to a female human holy paladin, and rename the blog Achtung Sparklymaedchen” or some such silliness. That wouldn’t work. You guys know I’d go Draenei instead of human if I did that, so that wouldn’t fool anybody.
Nope. Not me. We Prot warriors are serious types, after all. We hold the fate of entire raids in our large, studly, calloused hands. We mash more buttons before 9 a.m. than prot paladins mash all day. We don’t have time for frivolity. We constantly train, we constantly theorycraft, we constantly prepare. We study video of boss fights like an NFL defensive back watches game film of the opposing quarterback. This is an awesome, crushing responsibility that we bear, and we take it very damn seriously, people.
Which is why I’ll just take today to link to this excellent explanation of the latest WoW feature Blizzard has under development. Maybe we’ll even see it before Cataclysm!
