Re: Republican Party: Traditionalist v Reformers

They also know we will know when they're close as we keep our camp trapped and flared. So why should they waste their and ...

Re: WoWzers!

Although, the idea of running an arena as a full prot-spec warrior would be great for screwing around with everyone, backed up by a pair of semi-invincible healers. I'm guessing a druid dream-team of feral, resto and balance specs would work wonders. Up in the 2100s, Hunter/Druid vs. Lock/Druid can...
