CYOA: Another pretty face

Meet Bishamel. Meet Bishamel.

He's a blood elf paladin. Hooray! Belfadin was the #1 vote (due in large part thanks to the campaigning efforts of Tart), and so I started with a different name and chopped off letters and rearranged them until I got this guy.

Currently, he's rocking a fiery Bloodied Arcanite Reaper (HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO), and the PvP plate shoulders and PvE plate chest because, well, that's what I had. He's also got heirlooms ready for tanking or healing, should those be the path chosen for him at 10.

So now, I need 2 votes from you, while I rapidly grind through levels 1-10:

  1. What spec should Bishamel take? I'm currently leaning towards Holy - it's gotten a number of votes, healing is a role I've never really done past about 25 or so, and it'll let me glom quick queue times post 15 - but I'll go with the crowd.
  2. What should his professions be? I've picked up Mining and Engineering just for fun, but I'll go with the crowd on this one.

Vote fast - level 10 comes quickly!

EDIT: Closing the voting early on this one because I'm kind of eager to get back to it. Protection it is. :)
