I've made several friends in WoW. Several that have become IRL friends. One my best friends, literally lives on the other side of the world from me, was a friendship started because of WoW.
I have met several ppl a while back. we have decieded to meet each other in person and i must say we r still friends and we keep playing together for like 5 years. ANd since environment in wow is getting a bit harsh these days i am happy to have them and i would never change.PS: Met them in arena :)
It all started through a pug dungeon group in WOTLK. I was a druid tank looking for 1 more dps. That happened to be rogue. We chit chatted for a while then I ended up inviting him to our guild. Soon enough he joined our raid team and turned out to be one of our top dps. Since I am a friendly guy and a GM during our summer break I told our members that if anyone is in Greece this summer and wanted to meet up, they could contact me and we could arrange it. Long story short my friend visited Athens for 2 days during his travels. We got to talk about gaming, work, and our wives. 5 years later we are business partners in an IT consulting company, are practically neighbors, our wives also became friends. Now we are trying to level up our little ones to pass the torch on this friendship. :)
my wife and I are playing from allmost day 1. In my guild we talked alot and eventualy some of those players from all over the globe came to the Netherlands to visit us. I wish we could visit them but we dont have the funds for that.
all of my old friends and guildies quited wow, so i merged to another realm and in the new guild i become officer, find new frends even some ppl are from my town
I have met a good handful of folk from WoW, but look forward to meeting more! A lot of the friends I currently play with reside in the land of Oz, while I am in the U.S. It would be wonderful to hang with them IRL sometime :D
Friendship huh...Well i started to play wow during wotlk...Acc got hacked so i started to play again when cataclysm came out. I started to play on argent dawn since some of my IRL friend played there and said i should join. So i went and made a worgen warrior (Worgen Ftw!). As i started to level him my friend quit to play wow which kinda sucked at the time so i was doing what every bored student does when he gets free time. I continued to play wow. As i played someone went and invited me to join a guild. I was bored and really wanted the guild exp perk so i decided why not. The guild wasnt large as there were few active members active. But they were nice peeps. As i got to know the guild better i realised that they were a rp guild. At that time i had no idea what rp was so they started to introduce me to it. I actually enjoyed it quite alot and those who were active in the guild were nice silly people that everytime you would log on they would greet you. As my worgen reached the level cap i decided to just log on and be with my guild buddies as that was way funnier then getting better gear. Sadly time pass and those people i enjoyed talking to started to stop playing wow. It was quite sad and now only one of those people still play wow. But i dont mind it. We chat whenever both of us are online and are just being silly or hyped. We we´re hyped when MoP was confirmed to be the next expansion and i gotta tell you we´re hyped for WoD aswell. And of course whenever a new improved character model is released we just write on how awesum it is.Sure, this may not be the greatest friendship text out there but i dont really care. I´m really happy for meeting those people and i keep on playing wow as i continue to meet new and awesum wow players. Yeah, that gotta be the biggest reason why i still play wow ^^...But i gotta say, i wouldnt mind getting that iron sky reaver mount...Just saying :P
i met one of my best friends till this day on wow when i started playing at a very young age we skype everyday and play league together pretty
In classic I met some nice folk in Alterac, start playing together battlegrounds and a few days later I joined their guild.In that I met some of my best friends till this day and I'm still in this guild.
Have refound many IRL friends through WoW, but one new guy who I met from Sweden in-game I found randomly looking for arena caps and went well so decided to take it a little more seriously, but then IRL stuff meant it was harder for us both to be on at the same time and then he ended up quitting, although we still talk through Facebook every now and again.Also keep in close contact with an old raid leader who lives near me, although we have never met IRL before.
for 5 years of playing WoW, I never bought any friends, but lost all the friends in real life... don't forget about real life
Met my current boyfriend from wow and he has completely changed my life. Words can't describe all the feelings I have for him.And ofc I've gotten plenty of friends from my guild and I hope I never lose them ^^
I've never met anyone in person through WoW but I have made some great friends nontheless!Two of them helped me get over my dungeon fear and now, long after they have departed from the game I am still playing and confident in my class. My old guild leader also still plays and even though he's on a different server it doesn't stop us having a laugh every now and then!Another has been like a rock to me. We run old instances and try to collect mounts together. There have been times when she has really helped me through hard times in my life as she has this eerie skill of knowing exactly how you are feeling even though she never hears my voice. She just KNOWS when bad stuff is happening and is there for support!
My entire guild went together and bailed our raid leader out of jail during sunwell progression! that was quite an acomplishment.He got a dui so yea.. he was a moron! but we went together and helped him in a day of need!
The guild I'm in right now is great. Some of us are getting together around Easter, but there are two very notable exceptions that just don't have the cash to join us. It makes us kind of sad, but that is life.
I met a random warlock in the bank one day when he whispered " Love the name". We connected instantly, playing everyday together for months til finally I took a chance and drove to meet him. Still going strong playing wow together and recently moved in together. I'd love to enter the contest but I already had my Catfish moment. Thanks WOW!
I met my best friend tanking heroics during bc. Even though we've never met in person and I later went horde (and there was no realid or battletag connection yet so we only talked on and off) we've stayed friends the entire time. When realid was implemented, we were able to talk again with more frequency and I eventually ended up alliance on his server again (though it was a different server from where we both started). I've switched to yet another server now but I seriously can't imagine life without his friendship and I'm really grateful for realid as it keeps us in touch in the game more than we ever could have been without it. We don't even really have the same game interests anymore (he mostly pvps and I mostly pve but we do both love battlepets xD) but as far as I'm concerned, we will be friends till the real world spins right into the sun.
I met my now husband on Daggerspine about 4 years ago. When I joined the guild he was in they wanted me to join the facebook group but at the time I didn't have an account on there so I made one real quick. The first person I saw on the facebook group's website was my now husband and in that moment I knew I had to make him mine. He lived in Oregon and I lived in Illinois. We had our ups and downs but now we are married and expecting our second child together. I couldn't be happier. Even geeks can find love in unexpected places. :)
I met a friend of mine in wow from doing achievements. We both love doing achievements and we just became friends by doing them together.
Oh digeh, how fantastic of a friend you are. From leveling together through outlands, to wrecking it up in 2's. No matter the class race or faction you always had my back. We even almost got to meet up in philly that one time. Too bad for the plane delay. Hope you're still kicking ass somewhere-Zanzill
