A great friendship that started in WoW has to be the one I've had with my current guild on my main. Three years has it been since I have joined them, and So much has changed, yet we stay friends. They truly are my best friends in the world.
I started to play WoW nearly 7 years ago. I met someone, did quests together, then we joined forces in a guild. We met in real life, since then, we are good friends, meet every 1-2 week. Thanks to WoW! :)
Last year I finally started raiding with a guild and met some really awesome people and as it turned out one of them went to my up school we met up at a local diner and have been friends ever since.
What can I say? I used to know in person the people I used to play with, but they don`t play wow anymore so... you think you can tell heaven from hell...
I've met my current girlfriend and soon-to-be-wife on WOW. After a few years of online friendship, I finally ended up traveling the 240 km that kept us appart to settle down with her for good. Who can really resist a night elf with long hanging ears and poison green lips? ;o)
i ended meeting my ex raid leader and his girlfriend back in Cataclysm and other raiders too. They're all my friends now and i visit them sometimes :)
I met my current g/f of almost 6 years now in Shattrath, on the Scryer's Tier.
April 2013 I joined a guild. Soon I discovered this guild was exactly what I'm looking for: a nice, friendly, active, relatively small guild. I made some great friends in this guild, but one person in particular is really special to me. I think we started chatting a few months after I joined the guild, so at the start of summer. We started chatting more and more and more and I had a great time with him! At the end of the summer, the last weekend of August, there was a guild meeting in London. We both attended the meeting and after having a great weekend with great people, we all had a really great time, a few of us added each other on facebook which resulted in us having another way to chat even more, haha! A bit later on (when I replaced my all-settings-on-low-15-fps-crappy-laptop for a all-settings-on-ultra-oh-well-lets-cap-my-fps-at-60-desktop), he got me to get active on steam again and he introduced me to a lot of games (I only played WoW before). We've spent entire nights playing a game I had never played before all night and he was (and still is) incredibly patient with me when we do - which is remarkable, because we sometimes spend entire raid nights complaining to each other about all the things that go wrong ;)I met a very very great friend online, a day doesn't go by that we don't talk to each other. I enjoy every minute we spend together (okay, not counting frustrating progression raid fights and challenge mode nights, maybe ;)) and he always manages to put a smile on my face. It's a shame he doesn't live in the Netherlands, like me, because seeing him again would be so awesome. I hope I'll have the gut to just jump on a plane some day, haha.Thanks Faithy for being my friend! You're the best.Welp
Not eighteen yet maybe, but I found my boyfriend through WoW xD Two, actually, but the first one we broke up on... And then I found a new one xD He's so lovely :3
So, I use to play on a dead as anything server, A larger guild transferred over and was looking for a tank.I applied and met a hunter in the guild, Since i met him, We have farmed everything together from the time lost proto drake, To Mimiron's head!
Me and my girlfriend met two guys during the european beta of wow and played together for a long time - two years ago we took a trip from holland to portugal to actually meet them, which was great! :D
When world of warcraft launched me and a bunch of "internet buddies" went from Dark Age of Camelot to try the game out. We also said that we could meet up at a big lan party in a city near a few of the players, so we did.And we have now known eachother irl since the launch of WOW, still meeting up from time to time.The best part is that a few of us have known eachother over the net for well over 15 years now. Do time fly by, oh yes! And we still play together!
When I first played WoW around the first few weeks, I started out as a tauren and at one point Cairne (bless him) gave me a quest to track down a kodo that looked just like any other kodo around Thunder Bluff, and for the life of me, I couldn't find the fecking thing so I went to trade chat and asked if someone with a mount could help me in my search, and a undead rogue came to my help, after much trouble we finally found it and he didn't even want anything to do with a reward.That was my first friend I met in WoW, I was a bit daft due to my younger age and inexperience at the english language, which also led to a bunch of shenanigans such as him telling me to go pull some high level elite black dragon in some cave south of Onyxia's Lair saying he'd join in and help me after it started chasing me, or the time we glitched our way into the Cavern's of Time while it was still under construction which led to me falling into an infinite abyss and having to contact a GM to fish me out, sadly we lost contact for a while but met again thanks to the old battleground setup.After that we got back in contact with each other and have been good friends since til this day, one of my longest lasting friendships ever.
I met the love of my life while playing World of Warcaft. I met him in vanilla, we were both very young. Little did I know that seven years later of a long distance relationship, I would be happily living with him. I never thought that the little gnome warrior I met in Stranglethorn Valley who helped me quest and then later helped me raid and much, much more would become so important. Today, we are still playing WoW but now side by side inside of across the country from one another ! I came out for a visit last June and after returning home I realized I couldn't be away any longer and with him was where I was happiest. The most amazing thing is that out of so many realms... and Horde or Alliance.. I met him and managed to stay in contact for so many years. WoW was our only source of contact ( until we both got smart phones...). The odds of meeting him were nothing but thanks to WoW I met the love of my life. :)Sergo & Sisus - Feathermoon.
One of my closest friends I met over wow. He's also the reason I'm going into college next year. Here's my story :)One day, when a certain warrior got banned back in cataclysm, I hopped over to the darkspear server to see what exactly was going on. I ran around a bit, and felt amused by the entire situation, and met this kid. We grouped up, and began to travel around stormwind, watching the entire event play out. After the day was over, we added each other on real-id. This was the start of a long friendship that's lasted until today.Over the course of the next month, we began to talk a lot more casually, and I found us becoming more like usual friends. I had him added on social networks, and to be honest, spoke to him more than a lot of my real life friends. We spoke on a daily basis, leveled countless characters together, I've got him back into the game twice, he's gotten me back in once, and we became really close friends. I spoke to him about a lot of my problems, and he came to me about a lot of his.Some time later, he told me he would be coming to NY, where I live. We were both extremely excited about this, and anticipated the day when he came. Summer rolled along, and he told me his flight date, and for the first time, I stood back and realized, I was just about to meet someone that I've only spoken to and seen over the internet. It wasn't weird like I had expected. We greeted each other in real life just as we would ingame. Making the same jokes to eachother, and laughing about the same things we did online. It was great. I realized how much of a great person he was, and how similar we were in a lot of aspects. We did a ton of things, and eventually he went home. After meeting IRL, we still spoke a lot, and I found myself telling him things that happen to me on a daily basis, even though he wasn't there. When he was here, he met up with some of my friends, and now, ALL of us talk on a daily basis, and we speak to each other as if we were family. We all realized this was, not to sound cheesy or anything, but it was something special. A friendship that could never be broken.There was one big difference between me and him. He had a LOT of money, and me? I'm not ashamed to admit I'm a bit more on the poor end of things. But I'm not sad about it or anything. We still treat each other as equals. He was telling me one day about how he was going to this big prestigious college back where he lives, and when he's done, he will be moving up to NY, we can both get jobs, get a place together, be roommates, and how we could split bills easily with the amount of money he has. It would be the perfect living condition for both of us. This also happened to be the same night when I decided I really didn't want to go to college, being fed up with my crummy high school, and never wanting to step foot in a school again.Our conversation that night is the reason I will be going into college starting September of this year, majoring in communications. I'm going to be learning about what I love, and anticipate the day when one of my best friends, that I've only met once in real life, but a multitude of times online, comes up to my state to help me kickstart my life and career.A lot of people tell me that it's impossible for us to be that close, because we met over a "stupid online game". Well, that "stupid online game" is called World of Warcraft, and it's the reason I'm going where I am in my life, and the reason I know one of my closest friends. Thank you for reading, and I hope this is a reminder to anyone that just because you meet a person online, or never meet them in real life, doesn't mean that you can't be close.
i have been playing wow for nearly 7 years now and i have had a lot of friends in these yaers... sadly they all have stopped playing... idk why im still playing lol....
I have a buddy that I meant on wow back in the BC days when I had my warlock, we steady stayed friends since then and ended up moving in together a year ago or so back..cool stuff.
One of my actually best friends, was found while i've started to play WOW on late 2005. He was playing a levl 70 rogue and he helped me while levelling and protecting me against world-pvp ganks.
I have met so many friends IRL that I met in WoW. Two of my really close friends, who also met in WoW, are now married!WoW, destroys relationships, but also makes them too!
Enough said, I have met love of my life in WoW.
