Two of my dearest friends play wow. Not that much anymore, but they'll definitely come back for WoD.
I have too many friends online to narrow it down to ONE. That nice couple in Canada, the two in AZ, the one with no pinky toes, the massage therapist, her sister and brother-in-law, my buddies in MI, OR, and NV...the list goes on.
I met a death-knight and a mage, and we had great fun doing naxx
I used to play only late at night and made a few dungeon running buddies whilst spamming Trade LFG at 3AM. :D
To begin with, it was my long time best friend who introduced me to WoW. At my guild I have meet really good friends and recently while dungeoning I've meet a relly nice guy from another country :)
First friend I made in WoW really got me started playing MMOs. I didn't know what I was doing at the time and I'll always appreciate the help he gave me :D
In middle school, I was a quiet and lonely child. I had no friends, nobody to show me the amazing thing called "friendship". I was good at WoW, so good in fact, I got invited to a few guilds to help them with progression. But that is not how I play, I preferred to be a lone wolf. Then one day, in a pug, the raid leader and what seemed like everybody else, had turned against me because I won a weapon the guild master wanted; all but one person. He was named Noxicious, he stood on my side for that entire dilemma. He was at my side whenever I got into any trouble. He was an amazing person, so kind, so respectful. Fast forward 6 months, after being invited by Noxicious to a few pugs, and I noticed something, when I was on the pug's Ventrilo, his voice sounded familiar, so familiar in fact; I knew who he was. He was one of the "popular" kids at my school, one of the people I learned to despise them because they were so rude and arrogant. But he wasn't. He was the kindest person I knew. So it began, I told him who I was, and he told me that he took a liking to me. And then at school the next morning, I got invited to hang out with him, I was no longer lonely. I had a friendship that still lasts to this day.
For the past 6 years I've talked nearly daily to a few different people that I met online in WoW.
Sadly I've never really formed a close enough relationship on WoW with someone to apply for this T_T There were old guildies that I might have done this with to, like, grab a beer or something, but not anymore. That was many servers and / or guilds ago.
So, my story begins on an RP realm. I by sheer luck met someone who was into raiding, and was doing Flexible raids, so they took me along. My love of raiding was rekindled, which, by chance lead me to join a raid guild. The people on my raid team have become my best friends, all from a sheer chance encounter in a random Walkup RP.Is my story as touching as many others? Not really. But it's my little story.
Back in Vanilla, I used to duo regularly for dungeons and quests with a girl. She was fun to be around, and I looked forward to grouping with her each day. She really started getting interested in raiding, so she went and put an application in for a casual raiding guild. She told them she wouldn't join without me, but I knew she really just needed the support. After raiding for a few months, she left the game, and I haven't seen her online since then. I ended up staying and raiding with them for months to come, through Molten Core and Blackwing Lair, and we went our separate ways when The Burning Crusade came out. I still keep in touch with them when I see them log in, and it's good to reminisce, and see where they are and how they're doing. I've since met and married the love of my life, but I sometimes wonder what may have happened if there were a show like this around back then.
I have made some great friends playing WoW, and i would love to meet some of them in person, if money or free time was on my side at all. plus i know some are crazy so meeting online is just fine, lol. I do consider some of my friends in WoW my best friends. I also met the guy who i think is the love of my life on WoW. he doesnt play anymore, and we dont talk as much as we used to because he has a bf now. Sometimes i will go to Firelands and stand there on the starting platform cause thats were we first met in game.
I remeber I met one of my friends Jason, who i have on FB now and Skype with when we play met doing the thrall 4 phases of the elemental planes. It was oh you need some help clearing I can do that. And it just went on to questing during week days raiding and even helping him level new classes to play with. Overall I've met only two WoW friends in the flesh but I'm fine with it.
There are many great people in game, but i haven't met anyone yet.

I met many friends over the years since 2010 , mainly from guilds :)
I've actually met quite a few people IRL that i met in game. Actually most of my raid group in wrath came to vegas to raid ToC when it first came out.
I joined a guild in Wrath and formed a couple lasting friendships. Some of them convinced me to go to Blizzcon with them so I did have gone with them for each year since! Good times both in and out of game.
It's amazing to think of, but I have few friends that are really good ones, we'll do everything for each other.and even though we know each other for years, I still don't know where they live, what they do, and even if they are male or female.have already been invited to few them for holidays :P
3 of mine and my girlfriends best friends are old raid friends that we end up meeting and it's a special thing to meet peeps from places like SA :D
