  1. Hi Josh,

    I just wanted to mention that listening to your podcast I learned that you were irked by the idea of druids because all the different forms made you not see the gear you obtained (which is a cosmetics issue), but then in this podcast you are saying that you don’t understand why people are going after cosmetic appearances such as the color of their Qiraji battle tank – what gives?

    Please do keep in mind, that this post is in good fun, I am not calling you a hypocrite 😛

    1. Haha I understand where you’re coming from mate, I think it’s more that hear and progression is so deeply ingrained in this game that it is the true sense of achievement that we get, actually seeing the awesome equipment that our character obtains. However with the Qiraji battle tank, and many other cosmetic changes I’m not big on, what is basically a change in colour of an item doesn’t really do it for me. But I’ll wear the hypocrite tag nonetheless hahaha 😛
