I've got more moments than I could possibly type here in in any reasonable time.Chromie's quests were great, except I did them both at 80, one right after the other. Having past me complimenting future me's awesome gear that was the same when I was past me loses some of the effect. Having future me tell me to get some better gear was still funny, though. ;PMy best friend and I decided to start WoW together, pre-BC. We'd played MMOs together before, but this would be the first time we were starting a whole new game together. It'd all be fresh to both of us and something we could do together. From level 1 to 70, we did everything together. Every quest, every kill, every bit of lore, every bit of XP we got at the same time, at least with our mains and 90% of our alts (of which, there were many). We didn't hit 70 until after WotLK came out (showing how casual and alt-a-holic we are), and by that time my best friend had gotten married and gotten a better job.Before anyone thinks that this is going to be one of those "wife didn't like warcraft so we parted ways" stories, he got her hooked on WoW pretty early on in their relationship and she hit 80 before we did. She's now our preferred healer and a darn close friend to me.Still, being soulbound to the missus and the new job eating his time, we found that our free hours didn't match up so well any more. So, around 73, we agreed to part ways a bit and meet back up once we got to 80. Weeks went by and I discovered just how long it takes to kill things as a solo warrior that's used to being a tank (answer: "an eternity"). One night, my buddy and I, both 79 at this point, decide to do some questing together in the Storm peaks. We compared XP levels and, amazingly enough, we were within a thousand XP of each other. So, with all this background...One of my favorite moments in WoW was dinging 80 at the same time as my best friend upon turning in the exact same quest. Some of our other moments:- Swimming across the river between Elwyn and Duskwood "How hard can they be? They're wolves!" "Their level says 'skull'." "... Right. Back across the river, then."- Seeing an elite that's 5 levels higher than us (mid 40s). "Wow..." "Yeah." "He's coming this way." "Yeah." "Good thing his name's yellow." "... No, it isn't?" "It isn't?" "No...?" *best friend blinks away, leaving me to die* *best friend reminds me that he's colorblind*- The sheer number of times I've heard "oops" and had to tank way more than I was expecting... and still surviving.- Dancing with an undead mage that came to Sentinel Hill to kill anyone that was flagged. Nice lady, got plenty of laughs with her.
