It isn't every day a fan gets a chance to directly confront their idols. And more often than not, such an encounter usually results in blank stares, forgotten questions, uncomfortable compliments, and possibly a signed body part.




But when one big-time World of WarCraft fan (currently known only as "The Red Shirt Guy") stepped up to the mic during a Q&A session at the recent Blizzcon Fan expo, he managed to not only ask the right question, but earn the respect of thousands of players by schooling two of the game's developers on a botched piece of fiction.

Damn, I've seen TV shows and cartoons make fun of people like that guy. Never knew they actually existed, thought the shows were just taking these characters to their logical extremes.

Actually I'm more interested as to why the shaman poison/disease totem was removed and we were given the abilty to dispell curses instead versus whether or not Falsted WIldhammer was incorrectly placed in a prequel book.

Being shamanistic and in tune with the forces of elemental nature it would seem the ability to remove poisons and diseases fits right into a shamanitic ethos. Remove curse is more the purvue of warlocks (rightly so) and either death knights, priests or paladins (i.e. the antithesis of a warlock). This conundrum has been keeping me up nights.

Now as an elemental shamn I will say its about fucking time we got an AoE and I LOVE my earthquake spell.

You all take care now!

Monotone voice and mannerisms would suggest so. But he could have been really nervous.
