The above picture, cropped from the WoW TCG card game, is one of my favorite pieces of art with Ragnaros in it. In fact, the TCG art team is so phenomenal that they routinely put out the best pieces of WoW art I've ever seen. Keep on trucking, awesome Cryptozoic dudes.
Today is Father's Day in the USA, and sons and daughters around the world are calling up their dads, taking dads out to dinners, or just hanging out with dads in general. It's a very dad day. Well, I know one dad who is feeling pretty great because his new patch is coming. That's right -- Ragnaros. You remember all of his Sons of Flame, right? Dude has mad kids. There's nothing like kicking back with your dad, fires purging, tasting the flames of Sulfuron, and forcing 40 nerds to spend their life savings in gold on Greater Fire Protection potions.
How could you possibly stop playing your shaman...
When Cataclysm released, I was still very gung-ho on playing my tank. After hitting 85 on the warrior it was time to start thinking about what alt to start the grand move to main alt status, i.e., which alt would I play when people said, "Hey Mat, come do an alt run of something with us." I knew the alt would be a healer and currently I have both my paladin and shaman as alts in that respect. So, I looked at the healing capabilities of each class at that time (around mid-December) and paladins were godly compared to shaman in the healing department. Things have evened out a bit now, but the choice was clear months back.
So, the shaman went on the back burner for a while.
