Interview with Unnatural class leaders. Part 6

Today we gonna meet our shaman class leader Lunelin, another sexy draenei :)

1. Could you introduce yourself (name, age, class, rl-job?)

My name is Tuija and I have my 26th birthday on monday. I play an 
enhancement shaman.

Right now I'm working as a "Tech Trainee" at Activeark 
( I do mostly front end web developing and 
website maintenance.

2. Tell us about when you started playing WoW and how it was back then?

I started playing at some point during TBC. I spent most of TBC just 
leveling my character slowly, enjoying every little detail of the world 
and learning to play the game properly.

When my character was lvl 60 or so, I started doing a lot of 
battlegrounds, and also I knew I wanted to try out raiding. But then my 
account got hacked and frozen, which meant I couldn't play for a few 
weeks and my character was stuck on lvl 68 or 69, and when I finally got 
my account back and leveled to 70, it was only a week before WotLK. :D

3. Why did you choose your class?

I knew I wanted to play a hybrid class, because I like being versatile. 
I had also tried out a friend's shammy before I started playing and it 
was fun. So I just started playing a shaman, and I really liked it. 
Later on I also tried out some other classes, but I didn't enjoy them as 
much as my enha shammy.

4. Do you remember any funny “fail” moment?

I guess it's kind of funny that I don't usually fail much, but almost 
every time when we have killed some badass progress boss I've died or 
otherwise failed on the kill try.

5. Please describe how you prepair for progress raids?

Well, obviously I try to find time to read about the tactics and/or 
watch a video of the encounter, and fill my bag with potions. Then I 
just try to keep focused and and do my best.. But considering my answer 
for the 4th question, maybe I should just try to fail more often? :D

6. How important are addons for you( DBM, recount custom GUI etc)?

Some addons like DBM and Power Auras make my life as dps much easier, so 
I think they are quite important. I like how they give me both visual 
and audio cues when something important is happening, because the 
default ui doesn't do that very well. Power Auras is especially nice at 
new encounters, when DBM might not yet have a warning for some debuff or 
such, but you can always use Power Auras to add a custom warning for it.

I also like using Healbot for keeping track of everybody's health 
situation, and for throwing some heals fast if it seems like someone 
needs them. (I also use it when I play my offspec, I don't like Grid at all)

Recount is not so important most of the time, but it's nice to have it 
anyway. At least it helps you notice if you have the wrong gear on. :P

7. From your point of view: What makes up a good WoW player?

A good raider has good class/spec knowledge, does what's best for the 
team instead of just always seeking personal gain, learns tactics in 
advance and/or is a quick learner, listens to instructions, and is able 
to react quickly to all kinds of things, like pools of fire. :D

8. If you could change three things in WoW, what would these be?

I would make 25-mans and 10-mans not have the same achievements and 
gear. Well, at least not the achievements. Most 10-mans are so easy 
compared to 25-mans that it's not even funny.

What else.. Well, I would fix all the bugs!

And a third thing.. Well, I would wait until Blizzard fucks something up 
again so I could then fix it. :P

9. What do you think about the recent changes for your class?

My only complaint is that they increased the base cooldown of Wind Shear 
for all specs and not just healers.

10. Does performance and seriousness other players in guild satisfies 
your expectations?

I don't expect people to be "serious" as long as they are not just 
slacking. I'm not quite satisfied with our performance atm, but I think 
a lot of our troubles are caused mostly by lack of people or gear.

11. Besides WoW, what other games do you enjoy? What MMORPGs have you

I enjoy playing a lot of different games, allthough lately I haven't had 
a lot of time to play anything else than WoW. But I have played some 
Skyrim now and some time before I played LoL casually. Some of my 
favourite games are Civilization, Age of Empires, Minecraft and "old" 
platform games like Rayman and Spyro games (or even older ones like Jazz 
Jackrabbit and Commander Keen). But I really enjoy most kind of games if 
they are good. :P

I've tried a few other MMORPGs too, like EVE Online, Rift and LOTRO, but 
they weren't good enough to keep me playing for a longer time.

Thank you for your time Tuija
