So there’s a lot of talk, in general, since the dawn of WoW time, over what class, what spec, this gear or that gear or whateverwhatevers is OP.
“Waaah warlocks are OP wah wah deathcoil wah wah.”
Actually, I don’t know any more specific examples other than that one because frankly, I’m a lock and I only care about me.
But anyway – someone is always whining about someone else, and I think every class, every spec, PvP and PvE wise, has eventually been the target of a “THAT’S SO OP! NERF NERF!” QQ fest.
Today, though. Today I am going to reveal to you what is really, truly and ridiculously OP in World of Warcraft. I know that everyone has their own opinions and biases based on what class they play and whether they prefer PvE or PvP, and how badly they actually suck at the game, thus like to assume everyone else is OP when really they;re just dying because look, little Timmy, not everyone can be good at everything. I don’t think, though, that after you read what I’ve got to say, you’re really going to be able to come up with any kind of solid argument. I’ve thought about this a lot, I’ve thought about what REALLY makes an element of the game completely over powered to the point of ludicrousness, and I’ve come up with something I think we can all agree on, thus encouraging the end to these who-is-OP-who-isn’t arguments and brotherhood and goodwill towards gnomes. Or something.
So, keeping in mind that I mostly play caster classes, and that may SLIGHTLY color this opinion, and melee might have a somewhat different opinion, I will tell you exactly what it is that I think is way to over powered in WoW.
Yeah, that’s right. Birds.
Goes like this, ok?
Me: KAPEW, KAPEW! Got you, bird!
Bird: Ow! WTF, mate? *flap flap flap* *shriek*
Me: Ha! And how about some of… THIS! *fizzle* Er… some of THIS!!! *fizzle* Huh? Whar my KAPEW? SILENCED? Why, you screechy little bitch! *wand wand wand*
Me: AWWWRIGHT QUIT IT! *cast* KAPOW, BIRDFACE!
Bird: Now you’re just pissing me off. *shriek*
Me: What? Again? Damnit! *wand wand wand*
Me: *wand wa–* Hey! You like FPS Doug? Me, too! My favorite is, “Everyone runs faster with a — ”
Bird: Excuse me? Locked in a battle to the death here?
Me: Oh. Right, right. *assume casty position* *ca-a-a-asTHUD* Whut? How’d I get on my butt? I wasalmost done with that cast!!
Bird: I kno, rite? That’s what makes it so funny!
Me: This is so not funny.
Bird: Is so! Hey, Irma! Come check this out!
Me: What? Another bird? THIS IS BULLSHIT!!
Birds: *shriek* *THUD* *shriek* *THUD*
Me: *flee like a little girl*
Ok, guys. Seriously. Anything that has me, in real life, hurling the kind of words that were coming out of my mouth last night with the stupid kalaris in Hellfire, can not in any way be a healthy level of fair battle-ness. Tell me now, after my completely realistic dramatic reeenactment, that birds are not the most god-awful ridiculous piece of no good crappy crap in the whole stupid game.
