Greydune was originally one of the leads of a guild called No Tears. I was in Spoils of War at the time and he would occasionally run with us. He has always been an awesome tank and when I left SoW I kept in touch with him, trying to get him to come raid with us whenever he was available. Eventually he had the opportunity to join us and it has been great ever since.
I feel like I’ve know Grey forever, he’s just one of those people that feels like family moments after you meet them. Greydune has an amazing attitude. He is always chipper and you can just feel the spring in his step when he talks. He’s also engaged to Marisse (our very first Rez of the Week).
Without further ado…
Where are you from: Sacramento, CA
Would you consider yourself… hardcore:
Yes and no. Yes because I play a ton. No because I don’t get all hung up on the mathematics of the game or on every little detail of the game
What do you use your offspec for:
When you yell at me to go DPS in raids
How long have you been playing:
Since the opening release date
What about WoW keeps you coming back:
1) Doing stuff with the family (Marisse and Brigantia)
2) Because I need to assert my bad ass self on the server!
Has WoW taught you anything you’ve applied to IRL:
If you had to reroll…
Would you choose the same thing: Yes
Why: Because Warriors are a challenge to learn, but then becomes the easiest class after you get it all worked out. And we’re indestructible.
Best Raid Moment:
The first time I lead an all No Tears (my old guild) group thru Karazan completely and successfully. Up until then, Spoils of War used us to help fill out their raids but over looked us mostly. After that, we realized we don’t need SoW as much they needed us. It did wonders not only for my confidence, but for the confidence of the 30 others in my guild.
Favorite Boss Encounter:
The Little Red Riding Hood Opera Event. It’s easy and fun and you’d get to hear my brother scream like a girl in vent when he’s changed into little red riding hood
I use a bunch (some are even on our guild website), but my favorite is-
/target dark rune champion
This targets a mob, puts a circle on it and taunts it all in one push of the button. Very handy.
Prot warriors have a lot of abilities that don’t have a CD or is on next swing, so most everything is available to use. The priority is Shield Slam>Revenge>Shockwave>Devistate>Heroic Strike or Cleave. Thunder Clap, Demoralizing Shout, Commanding Shout, and Concussion Blow once I’ve got things under control.
Any tips for playing your class:
Tons. I’m always giving advice to other prot warriors. Ciderhelm (the author of Tankspot.com) wrote a very nice guide for prot warriors on the Community Site (http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=75381044&sid=1). It’s a great place for people learning prot warriors and people looking to go to the next level.
If you could be any mythical creature, What would it be: The Rakshasa
Why: Because in the original D&D Monster Manual, they were drawn as a tiger walking around in a velvet jacket smoking a hooka. How pimpin” is that?!
