  • I said... it tastes GREAT! (12/26)

    In looking for a joke for today's comic, I decided to go to the bard boards to see what they had to say about the recent nerf to some of their abilities.

    Well, I found a lot of unrest and discourse... but beyond that, I found an all out war between monks and bards. It seems to be centering on the ability to pull. And I can see a bit of both sides.

    Now, I'd link a post or two, but the fact is, every post I read had atleast SOMETHING that showed some negativity between the two classes.

    The textual battle reminded me of the old Bud Light commercials, and I knew I had my joke.

      Well I wouldnt know anything about the bard/monk issues...or the whole melee revamp...considering none of my melee classes ever make it past 45... I'd prefer sit in the background and wiggle my fingers... although my Shammy does like to smack a few things around when soloing..SO when do us Shammys get some kewl new melee abilities???

        Thankyou for explaining what the copy was - I had no idea... I was thinking American chocolate bar or something.

        Regarding bards vs monks. Bards were always 100% better :P Cause I am biased! I was a bard for 2 years.

              Errrr.........not trying to be a stick in the mud, but wasn't that from the Miller Lite commercials. I seem to remember John Madden and a bunch of other football players shouting back and forth at each other Tastes Great...........Less Filling

                I have no clue where it's really from... all I know is that I heard it pass around a lot... I guess it's famous in that regard.

                But, yeah... I saw a mile away that giving Monks Lull and simultaneously nerfing Bard Lull would result in commotion. As happens whenever any class gains or loses something, but it's obviously much more heated when one class gains something the other class just lost.

                Probably comparable in certain regards for all of the Wizard's port spells suddenly being taken away and given to the Necromancer. Instant commotion, just add whiner.

                  Hehe,

                  Thanks Woody, that was great. As you so aptly pointed out to me on the serverwide the other day, I'm class blind; however, THAT was funny, and you're absolutely right.

                  I'm a fairly regular poster over at MB, and every bard that's stopped in to whine has gotten some vartion of the following comment from me...

                  "Well, any good monk will tell you that we don't need the new ability, we've been considered the best pullers for years without it. Maybe if you actually learned to pull, and then learned to use your abilities to make that better, you wouldn't be here whining about your lack of skills, would ya?"

                  I'm rambling

                  Great Comic and all that.

                              Being that I play a bard and my Boss plays a monk I must say you struck a nerve there.
