My very first character was a Tauren hunter. He's currently level 58 and sitting in Everlook. He can't cook, he can't fish. His clothes don't match. His engineering skill is pathetic. He doesn't go into dungeons or battlegrounds. He's still using the wolf he charmed in the starting area, which is named after my first dog. I don't particularly identify with the character anymore, and effectively just ignore him. When I stopped playing him, I stopped playing warcraft altogether for around a month and a half.Then there's my rogue. He's an undead L70, decked out in Kara drops and badge-purchased gear, with an assortment of pvp gear "just in case". I rolled him when I came back to warcraft, and identify with him the most. He cooks, he fishes, he makes potions. He's got stockpiles of herbs out the wazoo. He's got a pvp kill count approaching 10K (pve server, and I don't like pvp very much, so 10K is a lot to me). I've written and re-written macros just for my rogue. I browse shadowpanther.net spreadsheets when I'm bored.I might never play that hunter again. But you're absolutely right; I can't just *delete* him. So I see him in the character selection screen every now and then, looking out at me, ready and willing just in case I want to give it another shot.
