Im typically in between
My first shaman up to 60 as a full noob, mostly wearing green (my hat was a leather one). I didnt know nothing about wow.
I made a break for some months..
My mage up to 60 in a raid guild, we used to go to MC/BWL on a regular basis. Eager to get champion dps,I got interrested about the mechanics of the game
I learned about the +damage and the spirit regen
I started a paladin as soon as my mage dinged 60, and went up to 50. I learn about armour and magical armour formulas.
That was 1 year ago, my paladin ding 50 and I was bored of the game again.
My current paladin and lifestyle makes me a little more involve in how to build a better tank/healer; I learned about defense and defense rating system.
I dont define myself as a casual player, regarding to my involvement, Im not a hardcore wower either; Ive been hardcore on an FPS based on Q3 engine and called Enemy Territory (an FPS with some "roleplay"), its definitively different.
As we say here, man man xue
when I will perfectly master the game, maybe blizzard will release a T15 pally set with +stats +heal +manaregen +defense +resist
