WoW: Looking good vs. killing good

RogueEverybody likes being the top dog in their MMORPG community, but does that mean you have to look like something out of a bad He-Man episode? As (madame) Dread Lord spoketh, “Dressed to kill. Bleh.”

That was the question recently posed by one gamer_gal over at a livejournal, when her lvl 9 Warlock in World of Warcraft picked up a broom on on the pumpkin patch quest.

gamer_gal gave it a bit of thinking, and while her ‘lock already had a weapons proficiency for swords and daggers, she trotted off to Thunderbluff – a very long trot, mind you – just to have her character learn how to handle staves, and wield that all-powerful (and eyebrow-raising) broomstick of doom.

Purists may gawk at this development, but it looks like even them dudes over WoWinsider are in favor of skill allocations like this, as one of them accounts to giving his beloved rogue the ability to wield dual swords, Musashi-style. See image for the results. Impractical? Yes. Can he use back stab with ’em? No. But you gotta admit – it looks awesome, and it adds a nice touch of individuality. As the old saying goes, “If I have to die, I will die well-dressed.”
