started playing wow with my sister and since then have made friends with alot of the guild members and a few people that are now friends outside of wow
My wife had spinal cancer at the beginning of Cataclysm and was in the hospital for nearly 6 months trying to reteach herself how to walk twice.Through the entire ordeal, she was able to keep 'social' by hanging out in vent because the hospial wi-fi was abysmal at WoW, and I credit a huge chunk of her positive attitude and outlook by her ability to relax and hang out with guildies instead of being driven insane by oddball roommates and mediocre food.
I've met several great people playing WoW. I'm currently the GM of my guild and I can say I'd likely meet any of my guildies if we were in the same area. I've made great friends and had a great time.
I met one of my good friends after we fought each other outside the strangethorn arena in really silly looking low level armor, he was horde and I was alliance. That was back in early lich king and we still hang out and play nowadays.
My guild was started by a group of scottish friends which me and my best friend (from Essex) got to know through WoW several years ago, most of them stopped playing a long time ago but we have each other on Facebook and regularly talk. We know all sorts about each other, from giving each other advice on relationships or work etc, to random presents and if things go to plan I'll be spending the summer working with one of them in Cyprus. When we can all arrange it with our jobs we're hoping to finally meet up, despite the awkwardness of distance. I have a very large social circle IRL but I still find time to chat to my scottish WoW friends, it just goes to show that you can make a good connection with people even if you haven't met!
My guild I joined in Cataclysm was awesome. Through raiding and just enjoying each others company I have standing invites if I'm ever around where old guildies live to text them and come visit. We still text each other on occasion though most of us quit playing.
I'd love to win one
4 years ago I met my best friends on Warcraft. Much time passed and we had many great times in Azeroth, but one of them, living with certain health obscacles, had ended up passing away only months before we were supposed to meet. I drove up to Oregon from California for the funeral and to meet her roommate whom we shared all our WoW experiences with (even if she was the one stuck at level 30 while Silenti and I were off raiding then telling her about it) and still talk to the roommate every day. We are now talking about who is going to visit next, early this year :)
My friends (local friends) and I became friends with some people from another state when some of them were recruited into our guild. A few years later my buddy and I went out to meet them and we had a big guild picnic. Most of my friends do not play anymore, but I am still in contact with some of my out of state buddies I met in WoW.
So it all started when my family guild went to another realm, and I wanted to gank them in the game so I made a toon of the opposite faction. They left the realm, so I never got a chance to gank them, but I did stay since my character was almost level 70. I met my friend by hanging around in Goldshire, on Lightbringer, not Moon Guard, and then I talked to a few people and met Rosie! She was pretty rad, we did dungeons with a few other girls and she eventually introduced me to roleplay. We then both moved to WRA and roleplayed together since~!
I've met my best friend in WoW exatcly 6 years ago and later on he introduced me to my girlfriend . If I havent met him I wouldnt have 6 years of laughter and 3 years of solid relationship !
In WoW i have met few friends that i talk in daily base offline.
It was the game's first year. I was questing by myself (I was an Orc Shaman) and had this quest in the Thousand Needles where I had to release this panther or something from a cage and beat it and all the mobs around it. I kept dying. In between, corpse runs, I'd notice a Tauren Warrior trying the same thing. He kept dying as well. He then asked me to help him, in which I was glad to. We beat them and completed the quest and started questing together. After then, we kept in touch. I was part of one of the realm's biggest raiding guild at the time and had gotten in from a recommendation from another person whom I had met. I happened to be on at the time the Guild Master was on when he decided that he was going to disband the guild. He bid me farewell and good luck in my future endeavors in Azeroth. I was devastated for, I had a fierce sense of loyalty to them.I wandered around for a while, not knowing what to do. The guild was extremely helpful in guiding me then. I then ran into the same Tauren Warrior I had met before. He noticed I was guildless and invited me over to his. I was reluctant, but eventually warmed up to his persistence and decided to give it a try. His guild was not a large one, but had pleasant people. I came to know them and ran dungeons and quested with them. Conflict eventually arose when the GM of that guild eventually sided to Alliance and seldom showed up.The Tauren Warrior's sister and Brother-in-law decided to take the rest of the guild and form a new one. One that grew and became my home. I became an Officer, and years later, I became the GM. The Tauren Warrior and I had become great friends and played together often. Mostly to fish. Instead of questing or doing other important matters, that became our thing. People would often see us fishing for Deviate Fish outside of Wailing Caverns. The Tauren Warrior and his sister came down near where I lived (in real life) for vacation and invited me to come over.I hanged with them and enjoyed getting to know the people behind the characters I had met online. Even though now they don't play anymore, I still keep in touch and keep the guild that means so much to us and remains a symbol of our friendship up and running.
I actually met my current boyfriend of 19 months on WoW. It's crazy how you can meet someone so incredible over a game.(: We've seen each other 3 times now, and plan on moving in together soon. Despite meeting over WoW, we connected better than I've connected with anyone in person.
I met my boyfriend of 6 years on WoW and I don't regret a single second of it. We first met in old Stranglethorn Vale (BC) because we were in the same guild and he needed help killing King Bangalash on his warlock, and I just happened to not be doing anything and agreed to help on my hunter. All my RL friends and even my parents had the same notion "What if he's just some 43 year old homicidal maniac living in his mother's basement!" Luckily for me he wasn't any of those haha. That is my real life catfish experience. :D
I started WoW in Rage of the Firelands as a Tauren.( Mulgore is awesome)(Tauren are awesome)(Paladins are awesome) and the first time i found my way to Thunder Bluff i got this weird pop up recruiting me to a guild. Having no idea what it is, i accept and am now the seventh member in a brand new guild made by an old(mwahahaha) and yet very awesome person. She helped me out a lot and answered however many thousands of retarded questions i had. We were achievement hunters, and although we(our guild) never got to any of the highest level raids(Bastion of Twilight is the top we did) we did a ton of older raids and had a blast doing it. Sadly, she had to stop playing near the end of Cata for financial and time-consuming reasons (she's in uni). We still talk frequently on facebook and she plans on returning to take charge of the guild again(she left it in my care) in Warlords of Draenor some time.
Haha. I met my husband whilst braving the demons of the burning legion! (Wow, THAT long ago.)We've both met people from the game in real life, and formed some lasting friendships! We're planning on meeting one of our guildmates & HIS wife once the weather turns nice.Looking forward to some enjoyable times.
I met my guildie, right-hand-man, and best friend on WoW, I can always count on him when it comes to raids, and such :D
Oh wow, this adds insult to injury for having no friends... T_T
in 2008, my little sister and I went on a tour of the states. Two guildies from Florida drove up to Canada to pick us up, and from there we drove around the US, staying with guildies. From New York we hit Indiana, where we stayed for a week with a family group of guildies, 2 generations, mother, daughter and son in law. We spent a week checking out Chicago and seeing the sights, then drove all the way across the northern states to Wyoming, where we had dinner with another guildy and his family. The next day we drove up to Montana for a mother's day meal with two of our guildies, before taking a lazy week long trip through the mountains to California, where we stayed in San Diego for a week with a guildy ho had gotten rich as a bering straits fisherman, and owned a mansion. We had no idea. From there we did vegas, the grand canyon, and the southern states before staying a week in Oklahoma with three guildies who'd been high school buddies and now all taught college around OKC. Two of them even married each other's sisters, ha! Down into texas to meet one of the most infamous trade chat people on my server, before driving around the gulf to spend three weeks fishing at my buddy's house in Florida. On my way home to drop my sister off (as we flew back) I spent some time in South Dakota with a girl I knew before WoW, but who joined my guild when we started playing in 2006.So. There's that.
