My background: I started playing WoW in December 2007. Right now I have 4 80s, 3 in the 70s, 2 in the 60s (almost 70s) on 1 server. I also have some chars spread over other servers with the highest being a level 24 hunter. On my mainserver I have my own maxed out guildbank. I used to raid with all 4 80s but now that they are fairly good equiped (naxx25) I only raid with one toon and occasionally with another.
But it gets a little boring to level the 3 70s through the same content I already did 4 times, not to forget those close-to-70s who are still in outland. So I need a little break once in a while (not from the game just from my "old" toons).
Did you know that most of the WoW-quests ask you to kill something/someone for the "greater good"? Of course you do. But did you also know that there are at least 2 famous characters who were good before they changed to evil because of doing just this - killing for the greater good? Arthas and Anakin Skywalker aka Darth Vader. Both were considered good before they turned to the dark side. So I was inspired by this blog http://pacifistundeadpriest.blogspot.com/ and created my own pacifist (in case you are wondering, I'm german and we write it Pazifist). And to make it even more interesting/challenging I created him (actually it's a she) an a RP-PvP-server where I never had a toon before. From the AH-scan it looks like a fairly young server because prices in the AH are ridiculous (15g for netherweavebags and usually only 5-10 in the AH, while you can get them for 7g on my main server and there are at least 2 pages avaiable).
The rules: Never engage a fight first. Don't attack the opponent unless it is to disable him but not with the intent to kill him. To prevent autoattacks wear a fishing pole all the time. Don't group up with others that intent to kill something/someone (exception are PvP-BGs). It's all about survivability.
So, why did I pick a female nightelf druid? Well, if I'm not mistaken, nightelves live in a very pacifistic way, together with the tauren. But I can't forgive the tauren that they teamed up with the orcs who I consider the most evil race (regarding history in warcraft, even tho they were manipulated at first) - that is the reason why I only have 3 horde-chars and I only use them to "play" the horde-AH ^^. Also nightelves and tauren are the only races with druids and it had to be a druid for these reasons:
- can change to bear from for maximum survivability
- can heal and thus is usefull to others too
- can stealth in kitty-form
- can run fast in cheeta-form
- can stay under water for unlimited time
As professions she has picked engineering and mining (the second professions will probably change often since there are some questlines for certain professions). With engineering she can build/use nice helpers (rocket boots).
