Well, I am a female, and a protection warrior. My husband is a rogue. I have a sister who is a shaman with a warlock for a boyfriend. My guild has 6 sets of couples. Which seems kind of high to me.
I never really understood warriors as a "male" roll. Sure, warriors may be tough, but prot tank damage is certainly not spectacular. I mean, what is tanking about? Taking damage so you guild mates don't have to. Its kinda motherly. Doesn't it give you the warm fuzzies? Plus, I think warriors like to be in control, and that they like the attention they receive from being in such an important roll. Sounds like female traits to me so far. Now rogues. There is a "male" roll if I ever saw one. DPS DPS DPS….I don't care who my mob is slicing into as long as I get can get a crit backstab in. ;)
For girls we have: 2 Priest, a Shaman(Healing), a Mage, a Warlock, a druid(Feral I believe), and me. I bet I'm leaving someone out, oh well.
hehe, I found this thread interesting enough that I registered on the forums.
Don't really see any general stereotypes aside from our hunters not talking on vent.
The guild in the past has had several female players:
2 warlocks (I have priest, rogue, hunter alts)
2 mages (one with a druid alt)
2 priests (one with a warrior, paladin, hunter alts)
1 druid (with mage, hunter, warlock alts)
Our gms have been
2 warriors (both male)
2 priests (one male, one female)
1 warlock (me currently, female)
I find a lot of female players either exploit that they are female thus getting all sorts of items from guys cause they have boobs or they're just normal players who are want to be accepted based on their skill alone.
We have had some wow couples too (m/f):
Oh, and I like to jump around a lot during downtime on raids cause I think the gnome jump is adorable.
From my experience every single priest I know or have ever played with fits into 3 personality categories;
1. Quiet, super-healbot (robo-gamer). A few priests in my guild who are insanely good but basically are very quiet and generally great raiders, fit this category. Two of them even make quite a bit of money playing other games.
2. Type-A Leadership Know-It-All guys. They think they're the best, (sometimes know they're the best) but generally are very opinionated, talk a lot, and pretty much rolled a priest because they think they're the best and don't trust others to do the healing.
3. Rolled a priest to be wanted. Obviously since healers are pretty desirable in this game, people do this. They like being healers, but they essentially play the class to be wanted in groups / liked by the guild / needed by the guild.
Every priest I've ever met falls into one of those 3 categories, and every person who has heard my theory hasn't disagreed.
I play a priest and that sums priests up perfectly i personal am no2 most priest in my guild are no3 with 1-2 no 1, I never wanted to be a priest tho i just rolled it cause when we started on launch day in europe the guild have 1 priest so i said i would re-roll. Number 2 sounds like a arse tho and sometimes well priest like me are but then again i think thats what makes us good healers, cause you know everyone is waitng for you to fuck up :P
