High Level Toon Tuesday: Elder Briarhorn the Tauren Healer/Druid of the Wild (Warcraft)

Oh man, I accidentally scheduled this for the wrong day of the week! Sorry about that, folks, I hope you can enjoy a Toon Tuesday on a Wednesday…

While I have not yet played the Warcraft RPG, I did play World of Warcraft for a number of years. I didn’t even start off with a Tauren Druid; I originally played a Troll Mage on my Husband’s account until we realized that we each needed our own account so we could raid together. I created Briarhorn, took a long, long time to raise him to max level (restoration isn’t ideal for leveling, and this was before dual specialization), and quickly became the main tank healer in our progression guild (and then a fairly well known healer on our server). I related to that big, gentle cow in many ways; he was a large part of my life (social and otherwise), and while I don’t play the game anymore, every time I cracked open the RPG I felt compelled to write him up. It’s about time that I actually did, and as a prestige class like he deserves. I hope you enjoy him as much as I did, because he is exactly the type of character I love and play best.
