is so obvious that you fail to see it. I had that problem with my goblin Cleeyah. She never really clicked for me as a character even though she had one of the most elaborate character-concepts I ever created. I was never able to put my finger on what was wrong and that irked me because I just knew that roleplaying with her would become so much better if I could just resolve that little bit that was wrong. Not that I lacked for roleplay with Cleeyah. I just knew it could be much better.
Last weekend a new face in my little posse of WoW roleplaying buddies whispered me: “You know, Cleeyah should really be a troll. Everything about her screams troll.”
I think I sat there for at least a minute and was dumbfounded. Because he was absolutely right. I created Cleeyah shortly after Cataclysm came out, and somehow felt compelled to roll a goblin. Even though I really don’t like goblins that much. They are quirky and funny as NPCs, and I really enjoy the goblin characters a few of my rp buddies created. But I am not a fan.
I really should have figured that one out on my own. *sigh*
So, to make things short: Goodbye, Cleeyah Goldeneyes. Welcome, Cleeyah of the Darkspear. You have no idea how good it feels when all of a sudden everything that irked you about a character falls into place.
