I've had quite a few moments...- Before WoW the most graphically intensive MMO I'd played was Ragnarok Online...I started a WoW trial to see what the hype was about, rolled up a night elf, and just sort of stared at how gorgeous Teldrassil was. - I refuse to run PUGs, so I've never seen a lot of content until hitting 80 and started running with my guild. We just recently started doing old world achievements to get them for as many members as we can before Cat hits, and seeing the infamous Onyxia and Molten Core for the first time was just great. Especially the epic swell of music as you run up the spiral to Ragnaros. - My very first PvP run. I -hated- PvP in almost any form, but especially world PvP. I decided to try AV, though, just to jump in and see what it was like. The Horde had us 500 to 100 and some reinforcements, most of our spots captured, and pressed back to our own keep. Somehow we managed to turn it around, press the horde all the way back through the map, and took the win with just 15 reinforcements left. It was an incredible rush and turned me on to PvP from there on in.- When I convinced, just recently, my WoW-hating girlfriend to join me in the game! She's now even more into the game than I am, and it's been a thousand times more fun with her around to play with. She's getting along well with the guild, and the occasional little love note in my mailbox can't help but make me blush like crazy. Finally...- Hitting 80. WoW is the first MMO I've ever capped a character in, and I've played a -lot- of MMOs. Seeing the flash of that achievement and the reaction of the guild was great, and the sense of power that comes with being the highest of the high is fantastic. I basically steamroll anyone that crosses my path, and it's delicious. xD Add to that how much content and things there are left to do, and I've realized people are right--The game really -does- start at 80.
