I've met many good people in wow . We communicate in real life pretty often .Moreover , some of my friends met their soulmates in wow . Wow is a good way to find couple of new friends .
Coming out of raiding heroic Dragon Soul in cataclysm, and into Pandaria, my guild disbanded and I was looking for a new home in WoW. A quick post in Vale of Eternal Blossoms chat looking guild, and one of my now best-friends John invited me into the guild he ran. We've ben playing together since almost the release of Pandaria and have made new guilds, crossed realm, done RAF, and found we even have the same career and college in mind. We've started on designing our own games, and I can't wait to hang out in real life :)
I met my current boyfriend through WoW 3 years ago. It's nice to get to know someone first through a shared common hobby like an online game. Like many people have stated I used to have so much more female friends that played a long time ago that I would have loved to meet in person but a lot of them quit the game. I still keep in contact with a few through FaceBook...so i guess there is that.
I enjoy being around many of the people in my guild. In particular I have a really cool GM who I just love joking around with and messing with. He is ages older than me but is still just a cool guy to be around. Known him for about a year or so now too. There is nothing better than just having cool people to laugh with over this silly game :P
My guild had a major IRL meet up a few years back. It was pretty great, and what you might expect by a group of adults: beer, bbq, and hanging out. Nothing really overly spectacular, just good times with awesome people. Some of that group have moved on from WoW, but a good chunk of us still play, and raid, and there is always talk of another get together... if the stars can align, ha. And those of us who don't play WoW anymore still get on the teamspeak server we host and yap it up while playing other games. They are more than friends, now. They are family!
I met my boyfriend, now of 6 years. we started by joining the same guild:) and now have our own flat. still playing together, same characters!
While I've never met all the people I've played online yet, only a couple of them live nearby so they dont count, there are many I wish I could go and say "Hi" to. For they helped me many times and worked together getting many things done and what not.And even though I've been playing since '09. I've talked to some, via Ventrilo, and they seem to be nice and all. I hope that one day we could have a real meeting or hang out. But maybe one day it'll come, until then I'll keep helping others and making sure they can be as good as they can be.
I've played WoW since the beta so I've had many friendships based in Azeroth. It's so hard to narrow to one story. I've had WoW friends pass away from age or infection. I've had many WoW friends have babies or gotten married, gone to school or gone to war. I've even met a few in real life as they drove across country and stopped for a wonderfully nerdy steak dinner. My guild master and many of my guild-mates have known me longer than most of my "real life" friends. Wow has become a wonderful place to meet and develop long lasting friendships in a very new and exciting way that is ever changing.
About.. oh 5-ish years ago, I met a guy on a WoW fansite and we hit it off like we were already old friends. We started playing together shortly after and soon we were spending just about every moment in game in each others company, and we still are neigh inseparable when the two of us are on at the same time.That friendship came out of WoW into a more personal friendship when we started talking on skype and playing other games together and doing online pathfinder campaigns and such. We are like nerdy soulmates. I can't imagine my life without him anymore, we really are like each others best friends. Our relationship grew enough over that 5 years or so that we did meet irl on a few different occasions (got passports especially for visits since he's in Canada and I'm in the USA). And soon enough I will be applying for sponsorship with him to become a Canadian citizen so we can live together. He is my best and truest friend :) and my love. And WoW brought us together.((P.S. I already have the brew pup pet, so only entering for chance at skyreaver... Just in case. :P ))
I started playing at the end of WoW vanilla, right before the release of the Burning Crusade. Joined a guild which was led by some of my irl friends but I also met new people there. One of them became very special to me, we always grouped up to quest/do dungeons together and after some time we got together irl and now we've been together for almost 6 years, living together and engaged. I have no idea what would have happened if I did not join that guild or if I was too shy to even talk to him but I'm glad it went the way it did. Thanks to Blizzard my life changed for the better; I found the love of my life and made some irl friends too.
During WotLK, I made a Rogue. I wanted help to kill Hogger, and was asking random people in Goldshire. In all caps, this one Mage wanted to help me. So he did. We both killed Hogger, and sticked together doing other quests in Westfall. We later decided to show our other characters. As this went on, we talked everyday and did a lot of things together. We both hit level 80 together, level 85 together, and level 90 together. We still talk to this day, and still play together.
u can build some serious relationships/friendships out there... i did, a good and old Guild can take some problems away while having fun so that means something
While I didn't meet this person on WoW, the game was the way I was able to connect with said person and grow our relationship. We met at a concert but went to different colleges far away. He was really into WoW and I had never played before. I made my account as a way to "see" him when we couldn't be together, which was most of the time. I bought all the expansions, and loaded up a time card. I learned core raiding and pvp and next thing I knew I was just as good as the rest of them. But one thing the game taught me beyond any pve/pvp skill was that this man was my heart's true partner. We have been together for over four years now and that may not have ever happened without my long sleepless night on wow with him.
My wife and I have been playing WoW since our RL friends enticed us to play in BC. When another friend of ours suggested we join his guild, it took off from there. My wife and I joined our friends guild, met some great people there for raiding and PvP and eventually branched out, left the guild and created our own! What started off as 3 friendships, has been a long standing guild and a roster full of real ID friends.
I have met many wonderful (and crazy) people through my guild, but the best friendship I have made through WoW was made when I decided to create a Blood Elf Pally, to try out healing. During a quest where you have to kill a guy and loot his head, CRZ ensured that the area was populated, and the mob was constantly being killed. There were many of us just kinda standing around talking, waiting our turn when someone had the idea to group up to make it easier for us to get the mob's head. We killed it, looted him and went our separate ways, except for me and this other person. Come to find out, we were on the same realm, and were invited to the same guild. I added them to my battle tag list, and we've been talking ever since.
I met my girlfriend of 3 years in WoW, and it's been a wonderful ride since! Thank you WoW!
Was raiding in a Top US guild, and at College, I had no car, so one of my guildies came over during Xmas and We had a huge pizza, it was awesome. I was really poor at college, living on Ramen. So the gesture of a Pizza was glorious! and we had many good battles in WoW after that.
iv met one of the greatest friends i ever had in my lifeback when i was a noob i met her and she helped me with my class because we happened to have been playing it same one at that timewe know each other for the last 4 years, she is one of the most important people i have ever met in my life.

Would love to have a few pints with them in real life as in game :) there isnt so many occasions for me to go to UK , until eventually I am moving there :)
