The all Preist and Paladin raiding guild.

Postby Sànguinius » Wed Jan 12, 2011 7:44 am

So a friend of mine and I had a rather interesting conversation if a all priest and paladin guild would be possible.

Here is the ideas we came up with.

Pros:

-Would have Kings, Might and Fort.
-Plenty of Auras.
-CC to deal with most adds that spawn (repentance ftw.)
-Good healers, Holy pallies are looking great and so are holy preist, disc still needs work.

Cons:
-Lack of Heroism, Armor debuff, arcane intellect, magic damage increase, spell and melee crit.
-Inability to curse curses.
-Preist AOE is down.
-Ret needs to be fixed (happening soon)



So baring that in mind would such a feat be possible? I am not planning on actually doing this, just merely wondering "what if...? "

You probably could. I would be curious if there are any curses that would just keep you from being able to complete stuff.

You would also lack any sort of battle resurrection, whether with Rebirth or Soulstone. No healthstones. No threat transfer mechanic (Misdirect or Tricks). Any sort of group slow (Chill effect from mages, Earthbind totems). And if you recall in BC, there were void demon types at one of the Tempest Keep instances (Arcatraz, I think?) where they would actually absorb a particular school of magic. With only priests or paladins, you've got access only to Holy or Shadow Magic. As an example, if your make up is a paladin tank and paladin healer, and 3 shadow priests, you're seriously gimping yourself if the mob absorbs/reflects the Shadow magic. Access to more schools means less gimping.

Although, the lolfactor of Arthas being tanked by a paladin, with a paladin offtank, 2 paladin healers, a priest healer, and 5 mindflays would be hilarious.

TL;DR - It can be done, sure. I just would look askance at this type of guild.

Ez-Thro Dynamite

The dynamite for Non-Engineers that nearly always gets to the target! Inflicts 51 to 69 Fire damage in a 5 yard radius. (1 Min Cooldown)

So have a 5 man throw a dynamite and pray it absorbs fire damage? :lol:

Or goblin damage?

Add hunters and you are golden. That way you have one plate class, one mail class, and one cloth class. Hunters can bring all the missing buffs, and the threat transfer, and some good CC.

Brekkie:Tanks are like shitty DPS. And healers are like REALLY distracted DPS
Amirya:Why yes, your penis is longer than his because you hit 30k dps in the first 10 seconds. But guess what? That raid boss has a dick bigger than your ego.
Flex:I don't make mistakes. I execute carefully planned strategic group wipes.
Levie:(in /g) It's weird, I have a collar and I dont know where I got it from, Worgen are kinky!

It would be an exercise in frustration, but you could probably end up clearing most normal mode raid content. Your damage would be gimped and heroics would be out of the question, though.

Vort: Hey I wonder if bubble removes the debuff? Oh cool it does, hey you know what would b-
Haunts: Vort, I will give you all the gold in the gbank if you don't say what I know you're going to say.
Vort: But if we had 10 pa-
Haunts: Don't say it Vort.

Then I usually sulk in the corner with my holy paladin buddy.

All-druid could be fun, you have tanks, healers, melee dps, range dps.


Missing a lot of buffs and auras but oh well, normal mode raids would be possible.

The void dudes that did that outside one of the manaforges are certainly susceptible to this technique. Other fun options for off-school damage:

Non-engineer
Magic Candle (fire)

Engineer
Frost Grenade (frost)
Tazik Shocker (nature)
Hand-mounted Pyro Rocket (fire)
Goblin Rocket Launcher (fire)
Any other dynamite, grenade or bomb (fire)

Engieering FTW!

My preference for this is the Arcane Bomb. But that might be because I spent way too much gold on the pattern, and craft them so I don't feel bad for buying it.

As a wise man once said, the Arcane Bomb is the WoW equivalent of the old D&D technique of throwing money at your pursuers so they'll stop to pick it up and allow you to get away.

All space goat guild. Just imagine...

Deathwing: You killed my children... twice... you destroyed the twlight's hammer and nearly disturbed my plans to destroy Azeroth. Notice I said nearly heros? Because now you face the ASPECT OF DEATH HIMSELF! TREMBLE BEFORE MY MI- eh what!?

Draenei (in unison): FOR THE NAARU!!!

Deathwing: WHAT THE FUCK! O_o
