When I joined the game in 2007 on my first character I was spending my time running around doing some random stuff for hrs on end, and at one point in Darkshire this random guy asks me what I was doing there... we talked for a while and he said he wanted to join me on my epic journey. So we ended up walking all the way down to Booty Bay in our early 30's and had some really good fun on our way. Anyways, this guy that I met still plays with me to date and we still reminisce on the days we spent getting ganked trying to find our way to Booty Bay. :D
Back in Cata, the tank of my first guild got kicked from his guild. I was mad, because he didn't deserve that. Next I made them kick me aswell. Me and the MT got in a new guild, but I knew his dream was to have his own guild. So he made one, I joined him. And we're still good friends. Though it's not the person I'm good befriended with.I met a guy in that guild whom i trained my first character to max. level. After a week or 2, we found out we were from the same country, and even more, he didn't live more then 25km away from me. Still I didn't had the chance to meet him IRL. But odd or not, this week I was thinking of arranging something :pBut I don't think I am going to do that after all...
I joined my guild back in BC and eventually worked my way into the core 10 man group; not even realizing I had raided Crossroads with them like 3 months earlier (fate I guess). 8 out of 10 of us still raid together today and have plans to continue on into WoD. We still keep in touch with others that have come and gone.Since we couldn't go to the wedding, we threw an in game wedding for the GM and her husband back in WotLK. We raided Silvermoon (we're Alliance) because she wanted to have the wedding in what she considered the most beautiful capital city. Her husband (pally tank) actually ended up tanking Lor'themar Theron in his tuxedo after the wedding when we got stuck in combat and he couldn't swap gear.We've always wanted to have a guild get-together IRL and have tried to go to Blizzcon together but sadly the tickets have always sold out. But that hasn't stopped us from celebrating together, whether it's guildies having kids, soldiers coming home from war, or an old friend coming back to the game after a long break. I can't remember anyone who has not been received with a warm welcome after being out of game for several months.My guild is truly a family and my WoW experience wouldn't be the same without them! <3
I joined a guild 4 years ago and met a lot of people. some times later I discovered that 3 of my guild mates were in my school and now we are real friends and we hangout together
I've met a lot of good friends over the years, but I still remember two occurrences quite well. One, the guy was getting thrown out of raid for being 'disorderly' when he just speaking the truth - a few individuals were playing absolutely terribly and needed to do better. I whispered him after and told him he was in the right, and then we spent the next hour talking about how bad some people on the game can be.The other, I was going to sell a BoE blue to, and I have this thing where I decide how much I want to help someone/the price I sell something to someone based on a few minutes of conversation. I had a feeling about this guy and ended up just selling him the blue at vendor price. Joined his guild and started raiding with him about a week after.
Platonic relationships these!Four friends - Dudes - TBC - Miss them dearly as they all suddenly dropped off & never saw them again.: ' (If only Real ID existed back then.
I met some great friends through the guild I joined, and another couple through random raid pugging, seeing each other a few times in LFR and striking up conversations, you meet some wonderful people on WoW.
I made lasting gaming friendships with my raiders in classic. Whenever we returned to WoW after a break we always messaged eachother on facebook to find out what realm and faction we needed to play when we started back up.
The idea of featuring on that show would terrify me, although It'd be nice to get to know some of my senior Guild Members better, in a safe, controlled environment.
I've made many friends on WoW and I'm glad for some of the great friendships I've kept over the years. =D
I met my boyfriend in wow and we've been together for almost 5 years now. I'd love to meet more of the many friends I've made over the years in azeroth and hopefully some day I will :)
5 years ago, I was a Pally tank and I met a girl that was a priest. many fun times were had ingame.a year or so after that, we really began to get to know each other outside of the game. 3 years ago we moved in together. last October we were married. people laugh when we tell them we met in WoW, but the joke is on the people that laugh. sure its a game, but it allows you to get to know people pretty well, and you never know how the interactions and friendships you make in-game will lead.
In wotlk, I was just casually questing on my druid in Howling Fjord on a weekend. I found this DK, hopelessly trying to kill a rare spawn. I whispered him and asked if he needed some help, and after together killing the mob, we quickly became friends. Sadly, he quit playing a few months ago due to irl trouble.
I met a friend that I still keep in touch with. I always enjoyed playing and chatting with him over vent, and then I got the chance to go out and see him in person. He was really cool in person too. He took me to see some things that I would not have seen on the trip on my own. Props for everybody else who has also made RL friendships from the game.
I thought cat-fishing was just pretending to be someone else online, like that what happened to that football player. I thought the show was just a new version of punked only even sadder.I am happy for those people who found legit happiness online.
Few months ago, I met a fellow on LFR, who was from my server, so we started chating how s*cky group we have and wipe a lot , and so requeued, (and then we won ofc :P). After that we keep chatting day by day and turned out we are not just from same country, but same city! We met IRL, and still friends, not just online! yay for LFR :P :)
While we never met irl, did meet someone special over WoW. Back in Bc, had a twink who kept running into this guild and this girl in the19s bracket. Ended up convincing me to swap servers, reroll several chars, and that server became my home. while I don;t think i've seen her for almost a year, i valued the time we had together.
I met my wife on wow, through a mutual friend. we started to bg together then wen I went to Sydney for my b'day we met up for dinner then we couldn't be apart after that, soon after she moved up to brisvagus and the rest is history!
Found out one of my co-workers has been playing since Day 1. He gives me tips on a regular basis & when I was low level, helped me run one of the Blackrock Mountain instances & keep all the loot. We plan to roll a couple of alts on the Horde side & level them together.
Well, I actually used to play Alliance exclusively. I never played horde and had no desire to. But then my little sister from RL joined WoW and she started playing as horde, so I created a character to join her. I then joined a guild she joined and I started talking with the guild master, and it was amazing. It was so easy to talk to him and it just awesome all round. There were some others in the guild that I also connected with but not as well as what I did with the GM. It went well for a couple of months and he even got me tanking after I only ever played DPS.Sadly, though, that friendship seems to have bombed when this GM and my sister had a falling out. I tried to reason with them both and I had hoped to remain friends with the GM even after what had happened but he decided that he was having nothing to do with me because I was related to her. So, unfortuantely, a great friendship died that day but the others from the guild are still there, at least. :3Also, that Skyreaver is so awesome! I just wish the exchange rate was lower so that I could actually afford it. :(
