Name? Race?

Bacon is win!

So ok the mage is now on Winterhoof, pending a faction change….ewwww I am a barbaric Alliance now! (again)

Anyways…how do you pick a name?

I used to always want a name that was Rpish i guess. I could never really understand the reasoning for naming your toon a funny name. However, the more I play MMOs that stance has changed and I have some odd names: Orangeslice, Melonslice, Bigbadworgen, Limeslice, Nattysilce (named after Natural Light)

I am not saying a “normal” fantasyish name is bad…but it seems not having one is just as common now. From odd names, to toons named after words – Nation, Tribute etc.

Choosing a race seems to be very biased. People appear to pick the cool looking race or the pretty race. Races not featuring these characteristics tend to be on the low end. How many femtaurs does one see? Dwarves in general? Or people go for min/maxing picking the best race/class combo.

So what should I name my “new” alliance toon?

Some sort of slice?
A new name?
Same name they were on Drak?


Should I stick with aesthetics? Or min/max?

Dranei – the 1% hit is nice I will admit. Gift of the Narru i meh. bonus to JC….

Worgen – the 1% crit is ok, Darkflight is nice. Skinning bonus…..

Human – the reputation bonus is nice. Spirit bonus is blah (mages get no benefit for it). Expertise – BLARG!, although Every man for himself would be nice if i PvP’d more. But no real PVE benefit.

Gnome – no…..not going to be the Sorak equivalent on Alliance. Although, female gnomes are teh cute. Escape Atrist – ok i guess.

Dwaves – Stoneform…cool i guess. Gun bonus…. >,<

      ^ !!!!

      Although, you’ll have Karius stalking you if you roll a dwarf girl … when he’s not busy with his Innkeeper’s Daughter.

      I don’t think we have a Worgen mage at max level in the guild. That might be cool.

      And there’s nothing wrong with the name you had on Drak. It was quite pretty.

    LOL every alliance race can be mage?

    You can be one of those gnomes with the pink pigtails and be Berryslice.

        Dude it was always down to a space goat or a worgen.

        Why you pretend otherwise is beyond me

      Dantae is a night elf.

        opps! missed that all Crits Stay classy achievments have mages already done except for worgen (mage)

        There are 85 dwarven mages, and I would assume would be close to get honored.

        Worgen or space goat it is.

    /sigh … I think we just lost a healer for tonight. Is that mage over here yet? Sounds like we might need you after all.
