Ah, healers! The life of the party, so to speak.
Sometimes we kite things, sometimes we off-tank adds or bosses, sometimes we soak terrible debuffs. In the end, though, healers bring the green.
I have been a healer since mid-BC now, having long-abandoned my poor mage. Since rolling Tanwen as a joke, I have leveled two priests besides her to 80 and have another at 60. The priest/healer stereotype comments roll in but haters gonna hate. (This is not even mentioning my 80 resto shaman and 76 soon-to-be-resto druid…)
And so I present: An Ode To Healings Classes.
WARNING: This is a post full of fifteen million different items. I did not provide a link to them because a.) there are fifteen million and b.) WoWHead can conveniently provide you with all the links you need!
Ah, playing another class.
I have tried. In fact, I was a mage for the first year and a half of my WoW career. Not a very good mage, mind you, but a mage. Then I dabbled as a hunter.
And then I rolled Tanwen.
After that, it was all over. Priest after priest after priest. Two Sin’dorei at 80, one human (then Sin’dorei, soon back to human) at 80, one draenei in mid-50s, and various other races scattered across servers.
I’ve tried leveling other characters. In fact, I have my hunter at 80 and my shaman at 80. My mage, my DK, and my druid are all wallowing in the mid-70’s, all but forgotten.
But Tanwen… Tanwen is my favorite, by far. But what if she were other classes?
She would be very stylish.
In several cases, things have been chosen strictly for color scheme or matching purposes. I’ve also included cloth interpretations that I could actually acquire for Tanwen should she need to dress up as some other class. Most of the cloth outfits are more “around town and casual” than battle armor, as finding cloth to mimic mail and plate eludes me.
