A cascade of pretty colors! (This was from my lone "For the Horde" run.)
I was talking to Vidyala last week who pointed out that the reason she could never play a Rogue is because their names and Recount/Omen bars are yellow. According to Vid, topping the DPS meters as a Rogue would be like "a big bar of pee!"
LOOK AT THOSE BARS OF PEE
As amusing as this analogy is (it's official. Rogues = Urine.) I thought about it for a second. Surely your class color doesn't make a difference...does it?
Well, Vid likes blue and pink. And her main is a Mage and of course, one of her other mains is a Paladin.
How about me? Well, take a look at the footer bar that's on the bottom of my posts. They're red for Horde, and I use green for links because GREEN = ORCS. (Unfortunately, this combination ALSO screams Christmas, but what can you do?)
And my mains? That would be Death Knight and Hunter.
This is a startling and curious revelation! Are our class choices secretly, unconsciously influenced by our preference for certain colors? :O Is that why there are so many Paladins - because our society secretly craves and adores pink?
However, I guess this theory falls through when it comes to players who prefer Warriors. After all, nobody likes BROWN. (Right?)
How about you? Do your favorite colors match up with your favorite classes?
(Actually, you can change the class colors in Recount if you want. Just enter Settings [the button that looks like a gear], go to the Color tab, and voila! Now you too can play a Rogue without the pee-related stigma!)
