Breakfast topic: Getting started in WoW

Before I started playing World of Warcraft, I hadn't played any other MMORPGS. As a matter of fact, I didn't even play video games regularly at all. I was always fascinated by hearing horror stories about the crazy things people did while playing Everquest. But I was also amazed by achievements and the vastness of the settings.

I've been playing WoW for about two years now. My boyfriend suggested I try it. I was hesitant to begin my adventures in Azeroth. I was afraid that buying the game would be a waste of money. I dragged my feet as I walked into the game store and grimaced a bit as the clerk swiped my debit card. I was dreadful at navigating in video games and was overwhelmed by the amount game knowledge it took to be successful. It took me about ten months to get my first level 60 character. I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I first started playing. I really wish I had discovered WoW Rookie sooner. In the end, I discovered that WoW is awesome. I love being part of the community.

I soon found that it was definitely not a waste of money. Although I've taken some time off here and there, I just can't imagine a world without World of Warcraft. Although it means little in the outside world, I'm very proud to have mastered many aspects of the game. My proudest accomplishment was multiboxing two characters to level 70. I've been a gamer from the time I could count spots on cards. I still play table-top RPGs. WoW is the perfect addition to my repertoire.

What did you play previously and what brought you to WoW?
