I play a Blood Elf Paladin on US Destromath. I am the tank officer and one of the MTs of a guild called Crypt Friends. The history of my tanking career started way back in vanilla wow with the creation of a warrior. My first character was a orc warrior named Wrathizol. I leveled him all the way up and instantly was obsessed with tanking everything I could. My passion was to go into instances and do it better than the last guy.
I became an OT for a guild and progressed as an OT all the way through BWL. Upon entry into AQ40, our MT quit and I moved into that position, MTing all of AQ40 up to Twin Emps. In my spare time, I spent just a few hours in battlegrounds and got to rank 12 (General / Marshal) with my sweet AQ40 bug gear and a Hand of Ragnaros.
When The Burning Crusade came out, I made it to about level 66 before I was tired of the static threat of warriors and the lack of improvement based on leveling, so I rerolled a belf paladin to level with a buddy. I surprisingly fell in love with it instantly. I wanted to be a healer, because my guilds healers were really sub par and it seemed like the most logical thing to do to show them that it wasn’t that hard if you put your mind to it.
After about two weeks at 70, I was our guilds best healer, but we were stuck in Kara, Mag and Gruul, and I wanted more. I applied and was accepted into Crypt Friends in October of 2007, where I quickly became part of the healing team. I was one of our main paladin healers from SSC/TK all the way through pre nerf Mu’ru.
I took a break from wow right around 3.0 and came back when WoLTK came out, with every intention of being a Huntard. I leveled my twink hunter all the way to 80 and started gearing them out, only to have the other officers in Crypt Friends asked me to level my paladin and spec protection to be the blessing of sacntuary bitch, and the rest is history…
