[Lore] The Books So, as some of you know, I got burned on this xpac of WoW. I'm in the top Horde guild on my server and have a core raiding slot as a resto / enhancement shaman. The week before Thanksgiving this year, I told my GM/RL that I needed to take a break from WoW due to some real life stuff going on. I quit but kept my sub running. During the time I wasn't playing, I purchased Rise of the Horde by Christie Golden, arguably the first book in the WoW lore series. I read it in a couple days. I read about how warlock came to be initially. Hmmmmm. Well, after a few weeks I popped on to try out my 47 undead warlock. New 5.1 patch and had to re set up my UI.
Well, I specced demonology because honestly, aren't warlocks about demons? Yeah, thought so. Now, since I'm not actively raiding anymore because I don't want to commit myself to 3 four hour nights sitting at my computer listening to sometimes painful voices on Mumble, I feel free enough to just level through questing and throw in an occasional dungeon through LFD.
My warlock is now 61 and still demonology ( i have used the other specs to and am familiar with the ins and outs) but demo lock is definitely more visually appealing and seems to fit lore in my mind. I noticed when I gain over 6 or 700 demonic fury i grow purple horns and with the Dark Apotheosis glyph I have permanent wings on my back, I just look badass. Couple that with the several Imps behind me and my Felguard. I mean, how neat is that? That's pretty neat!
Has anyone else read some of these books and gone into the game with a different perspective on classes?
Reading your post made me want to punch a kitten in the jawbone.
Interesting. I think the only WoW book I read was the one about the fall of Archimonde....I'm sorry, but I'm forgetting the name now, I think it was trilogy of books (I bought it was one volume). Was a great read, too. The mages were presented quite differently in there....at least the one I remember....he was presented as quite the martial/swordplay expert + magic power.
I've read all of Christie Golden's WOW books to date except Lord of Clans. Have to say they rekindled my interest in WOW there towards the end of Cata. Her latest one might be my favorite and is a good introduction to the events leading up to the lastest expansion.
