My husband has like 6-7 paladins… maybe more on his account. Only three of them are max level thus far. He likes paladins. He’s played a paladin since he logged on in vanilla and he’s weathered all the changes the game provided for paladins. Mostly he’s been a Prot pally, sometimes a Ret and very occasionally he’s even been a holy paladin. He likes paladins so much that our son has a level 85 paladin and I have several paladins myself, though my main is my death knight [I always thought the Paladin/Death Knight combo was interesting].
Askevar and Venoym
Anyway here’s Venoym in full transmog:
Like I said, he’s had this toon forever. He exceeds me in total achievement points and has ground things like the Insane. He did contemplate swapping mains once or twice because of some massive paladin changes that came out but has always managed to roll with those punches and enjoy the class once again.
Here’s his smattering of other paladins… I left out his army of lowbies.
Ven’s pally army: Herald toon; Horde and 2 of his main server alt pallies.
Yes, he’s mad about paladins.
So much so that our son’s first toon was a paladin. And yes, it looks very much like Venoym… he is a daddy’s boy.
He calls it a hunter though… Our son thinks Hunter is part of the toon’s name… so yeah. It’s weird I know So he’s got the mage on one account and this paladin on the other. If he wants anymore he’ll have to level them. [His third toon appears to be a warlock that just hit level 3 - and he's very very proud of that].
And for completion’s sake here’s my Paladin Collage:
The dwarf there was the first toon I ever rolled on the account… I leveled her to 40ish in vanilla and then dropped her because while being a Jack of all trades was fun at low levels, it became more complex and weak the higher you went. She’s swapped specs a few times but it currently holy.
The human paladin is my current bank toon… I decked her out in that transmog from Darkmoon Faire at level 10 or 20… I honestly forget which, but I wanted her to look good.
And the horde there is Holykau… the poor thing can’t keep a horde guild on Argent Dawn – she’s had them transferred out from under her four or five times now… and it’s continually someone kicking everyone and ninja-transferring to either have a level 25 guild or to sell it… I’m still not completely sure. She was leveled for the double agent achievement but I enjoy playing horde side on occasion.

So it’s Monk week! I adore my monk! She’s very fun and my favorite toon other than my main I leveled Taiki as Brewmaster originally, thinking I’d definitely want to be a tank but I ended up through circumstances trying Windwalker and falling in love.
Here’s Taiki – my level 90 monk on my main realm
She’s the only dps alt I really enjoy and I’ve tanked on her a little bit and it’s pretty decent too. It actually reminds me of death knight tanking somehow. I tried healing on her in LFR after throwing together a cobbled set but it just doesn’t work for me.
That said, I am trying mistweaving on another lowbie toon and it’s pretty easy there… not sure why it seems so much harder endgame but it seems that way… Here’s Kwini who is slowly being leveled and who has basically done little questing and all dungeoning thus far.
I’ve rolled a few other monks, including a bank alt for my old realm. Also rolled a human monk for a raid activity before the last patch dropped where we all rolled new toons and rushed to level 10 for battlegrounds… but they don’t seem to have taken.

I mained a warlock initially, so I had very little appreciation for mages until I’d leveled most of the other classes. I always reckoned that if I wanted to play with fire, I’d just go destruction. Despite saying that, my lock has been demonology – always. And I did end up “playing with fire”. I can’t make a mage do very well, but I do enjoy playing them on occasion. I only have one mage to share that’s my own. She’s a human mage, created on Argent Dawn and named after a former raid leader who I particularly learned from. She sat for a couple years before finally getting leveled.
As you can see her transmog is… incomplete
But anyway, what I really want to discuss is my son’s mage, which used to be mine… When we moved servers, my husband wanted the convenience of us both being able to port around. Add to that, the mage was a toon our son had shown some fascination with and I was planning to leave it behind. Hubby insisted that I move it to the other account, so we’d both have ports and our son could also play it with us. I’m glad he did. Since we moved servers, our son has flirted with the game on and off and really enjoys his little gnome mage, which he calls “Mommy’s gnome.”
His gnome’s home is in Stormwind and the Trade District innkeeper is his toon’s mommy. He mainly spends his time either on this toon or his human paladin [who are apparently siblings since the innkeeper in Trade is mommy to both] and enjoys just flying around exploring.
He learned to read a map a long time ago somehow, which as someone with a degree in Anthropology/Geography makes me quite happy. So he can find me anywhere just about. He makes a game of it occasionally, especially if I’m in a place he doesn’t recognize.
He’s learned to fight sha and knows some raid ettiquette. He’s learned to not stand in bad. And he has fun learning. His toon also has uncanny luck with gear… he got both pieces of 496 tier off Sha, 2 rings, boots and belt off Galleon; and both 522 tier off Nalak with a plethora of PVP gear.

While neither hubby nor I have been overly into our hunters… the class has always been a big part of our raid experience because we’ve had the joy of running with a number of stellar hunters… no huntards be here. Here are our current regular hunters in raid – all of whom are very talented!
Here are our raiding hunters!
And yes, we run a ten man with a potential three hunters if the make up works out that way We’re raided with more hunters of course – some of whom I know read my blog from time to time, so hat tip to you guys! I think you all have me spoiled for my expectations from the hunter class

I have at least one of every class so I do indeed have a hunter. In fact, I have a couple of them… but only one that’s max and the others I plan to delete [ie, there's only one I care enough about here to show]. It’s a class that I have a very on again/off again relationship with. My hunter was an early alt rolled in vanilla/BC time right after starting the game. It got leveled to max  second and was an alt I raided on occasionally in Karazhan. As odd as it as back then, she was a tailor/enchanter. And by the time I realized the benefit of using other professions for a hunter, she already had too many tailoring recipes to realistically replace, so she’s stayed thus. I did the whole epic bow questline on her. I have the Arcanite Reaper from Karazhan sitting on her.
Despite all that, I’m not a very good hunter. I was alright as Beast Mastery back in BC but when LK hit that became well… not viable for me. I went Marksmanship for that and in Cata that didn’t seem to work well for me and I’m not overly fond of Survival now… despite it being the “best” spec based on advice I’ve been given.
Anyway, despite those truths, I still have some fond memories of my hunter and fun experiences!
I have a collection of lions – Sambas, Humar and the White Lion which I have had back since early in the toon’s life… [it was one of my first pets]. Traditionally only horde could get it but I was in an ally guild where someone had a horde alt with the summoning quest and who was helping guildies get the lion. So naturally Wesa [Cat in Cherokee] is my favorite pet.
I put the lions in my stampede bar and here they are… with several copies of the white lion!
I did the Rhok’delar questline on her… though it was pretty easy to do by that point… but still a fun bit of story! I have the bow, the staff and the Quiver from that questline still in my bank today.
I love the flowers on the bow!!!
And quite possibly my favorite toy!

So in honor of Druid Appreciation week, here be my druids:
I started Aricaa back in BC and leveled her… tried resto one time [it was very fail] and ended up going Feral [tank mainly then]. I actually had my first tanking experience on her, not the death knight. I had just gotten her to 70 and we were a tank short for Gruul’s Lair [for the High King Maulgar fight]. I had literally just defense capped her that afternoon and hubby had me hop over and tank the warlock guy… so basically get feared around the room while trying to hold aggro. After Cataclysm dropped, she ended up going solidly kitty dps, though I think she still has a tank spec on her to this day… I just find druid tanking to be somewhat frustrating, though I will admit readily that i haven’t truely given it a recent fair shake… maybe I’ll give it a go this week…
Qeziah was started with the intention of being my resto/boomkin druid… well… resto healing frustrates me too but I actually manage to get by in LFR and be competitive. I prefer to not rely on HoTs as a healer so she honestly doesn’t get much playtime. I hated boomkin so much when I tried it that I ended up going feral for her offset… that plus a BoA 471 polearm didn’t hurt either for leveling from 85-90… And I really love feral druiding The set on the left is her resto mog and the set on the right is her feral mog.
And lastly, I loved the look of the troll boomkin so much that I ended up making a druid boomkin banker on my horde server… He just handles auctions and banking but it works… Heh, maybe I’ll even try a LFD run this week…
Oh I suppose I should also mention the worgen druid I rolled on my second account… that well… isn’t likely to be played anytime soon… she’s mostly mogged in the Cenarion set also [Molten Core sets are easy to come by early on and most are pretty nifty] with Phaelia’s Vestments for a chest piece. Mostly I just loved the mixture of her name and being a worgen…

So apparently I missed the memo on the proposed Alt Appreciation Weeks but hey, I’m glad i didn’t miss a week! I have alts of every class but probably the most DK alts. Yeah, my main is a death knight too. And they all have blood specs. Some have dps specs too but all of them have blood specs.
Why death knights? I don’t know. They just feel right to me. I’ve heard the claim that dks are boring because you only spam death strike but that’s really an oversimplification. And I’ve also heard it’s too hard. Personally I enjoy the synergy I have with my husband’s paladin. And maybe that’s really the difference for me there.
Anyway, here’s Askevar in her “Lich Queen” outfit. Most of my death knights are mogged similarly as I like the outfit and unlike many others seems to suit them.
