Ok, I give up. Everytime I attempt to become anything other than dps in the World of Warcraft two things have happened. I have either stopped playing that character, or I have nearly quit the game in general.
I tried to become a resto shaman once, shortly there after I quit the toon and rerolled Horde, and the same thing has come to pass on Rusty. Since hitting 80 I have been full Protection Speced, I have geared him in epics, and I have studdied the play-style, and yet I haven't actually played him in over a week. Nor have I felt the urge to blog about Rusty since I speced Prot, as you have noticed.
Apparently murder is the only job that I am suited for in WoW. Which isn't a bad thing, but it makes me feel less than useful. Anyone can dps, but very few can tank or heal which leads to a higher demand for those two roles, but for me Tanking is work, and hard work at that.
I simply don't have a lot of fun playing as Prot. It is much more my style to smack things in the back with monster weapons than it is for me to stand infront of said monster and piss it off.
Short version: I'm going dps, and I'll be sticking with it.
