i was there when it all begin
Mine is killing normal 10 deathwing when i was 12, i linked my achievement to all my friends. on my main Shadowpriest
I remember it very well. My family and I had just moved to the US and I had to do A LOT of convincing to get my mom to let me use her credit card for the subscription. 😂
I started right when the AQ event was happening. Never got close to ringing the gong, but I remember the insane lag in the zone during the Elite mob invasion.
18 years ago today I picked up my collectors edition from a gamestop store that no longer exists. That store has been turned into a bookstore. It was a 45 minute drive back to my house because the nearest videogame store was about 30 miles away. I never would have imagined I would still be playing the game 18 years later. So much has happened, so much in my life has changed. So much in the world has changed.
The way people were not worried about Item level and Mythic Plus scores. Just coming together to defeat powerful foes without all the Toxic Chat that goes on now, cause if you treated people the way you treat people now you would not get invited back to do any Major Raid. Item levels and Mythic Scores just ruined what was good, My personal opinion, and made it all more toxic
Met my wife when she recruited me to her guild in BC. Proposed at Blizzcon 2010. 12 years and three kids later, so far so good!
Were legal boys !
Best memories? I think that'd be when I bought the game on Christmas 4 years ago. I boosted a Rogue that I always wanted to play, was slowly leveling to 120, enjoying hot choccy milk during winter times. It was nice and cozy.Now I raid mythic and I'm still enjoying this game with my fellow guildmates. One of best decisions I've ever made 4 years ago by starting to play this game. I met awesome people, shared great moments and that will continue in Dragonflight.
From Dial-Up >> DSL >> ADSL >> Cable >> Copper/Fiber BroadbandFrom installing the game using multiple CDs, waiting for months to have a patch release and then taking hours to download it >>To installing the game using DVD, waiting for weeks/months to have a patch release and then taking an hour or two to download it >>To downloading the game from web in mins and installing it right away, reading all the complains about bugs/class imbalance on web and waiting for those to apply in hotfixes and frequent minor patches release and downloading and applying major patches in mins too!Yup, I feel really old now, and I am not getting any younger either. 👀
Next year will be the year I played WoW for half of my life. Started 13 years ago, and never regretted a single day.
yes, for example, shop mounts should have gone on sale to celebrate it. Even though it was black friday, no mounts were discounted in the shop, it's ridiculous.
I started out in high school playing Horde because my family played it. Granted, my older sister is more inclined towards the Alliance. Still, I played Beast Mastery since I wasn't interested in MM and I didn't think Survival would be fun. We also used to run dungeons every weekend, which was always fun.That said, I'm just hoping that Dragonflight runs well enough because I really do want to fight alongside a Veilwing for once. Of course, i'm going to give the other major factions love. And this might be the first expac where I actually want to get different toons to max level.
Over half my life has been in this game now.. Jesus Christ this post made me feel old.
Played WoW for more than half my age. Started 2 days after release. Time flies. Happy birthday World of Warcraft.
Merely playing around in Ironforge, then Goldshire.
The day that ruined so many lives...and marriages. XD
As a noob Prot Pally off tank in ICC. Watching my main tank and prot pally mentor die during Sindragosa fight with 10% left. Raid leader called a wipe but I told everyone to keep going, I can tank it!We persevered. I pulled off a clutch Bubble/cancel aura, retaunt to clear my stacks.We killed Sindy first time. Cheers were heard, my relief was immense. Those that remember, still talk about it to this day. I was never questioned on my performance as a tank again. My guild still raids. We had to switch server to recruit but we're still raiding!I've tanked every raid since ICC and I can't see that changing in DF.I'm maining a Prot Warrior in DF and can't f##king wait!
I remember going into Molten Core as an Orc Warlock and chain-critting Shadow Bolts, pulling aggro of a tank. That was scary fun.I remember the first time I ran into Stormwind and hearing the music swell, and realizing the game was more than just killing kobolds and bandits in Elwynn Forest. I also remember being a lowbie when someone did the Reginald Windsor quest and Lady Katrana Prestor turned into Onyxia in the Throne Room.I remember when the servers lagged so hard during the AQ event that when I summoned my mount it didn't actually spawn, so I just ran at 200% speed through Un'Goro Crater. Naked, because I kept dying to everything in Silithus.I remember solo-tanking the last 10-15% of KT with 2 DPS and 1 Healer alive, having to hold aggro on KT and the bug adds.I remember when Mists launched and I discovered that my forever favorite race/class combo is Pandaren Monk.And even as the game, and I, have gotten older, there's still something about WoW that keeps me entertained, keeps me playing. Happy Birthday WoW.
