I started playing in May of 2007. I had returned home from University for the summer to find that my younger brother had started playing. I created a trial to play with him, and here I am! It took me almost those entire two years to 'hit my stride' with WoW. I played off and on, let my subscription lapse for months at a time, kept creating new characters once I got tired of old ones... Then, about a month after Wrath launched, I rolled a Shaman. The class 'clicked' for me more than any other before, and now he's been my main ever since. A year ago I never thought that I'd be at the level cap, but now I'm not only there but raiding as well. All in all, it's been a good two and a half years for me. I've enjoyed exploring Azeroth as both Horde and Alliance.

I forgot to tell a story from when I first started... My first character was a Dwarf Hunter. I was running around Loch Modan at around level 15 when I found the dam. Amazed at the scale, I climbed it and looked out over the Wetlands. I was enjoying the scenery, then- bam! I accidentally fell off the dam and plummeted into the Wetlands. The mobs were all a good 5 levels higher than me, and I have no idea how to get back (I had no idea what a hearthstone was:P). I thought I had but one option- press on until I could find a town with a griffon back to Loch Modan. So on I went, dying constantly from mobs I had no hope of killing. I just kept going straight ahead... totally missed Menethil Harbor, until I ended up in the Arathi Highlands. I saw a sign that pointed to "Hammerfall". Great, I thought, Dwarves are all about hammers, right? Surely that must be a Dwarf town! Slowly, I made my way there... only to be dismayed when it was crawling with Orcs! Finally... at the end of my long journey, with rez sickness and completely broken armor, I made it to Refugee Point- and boy, did I ever feel like refuge at the time!

Ah, exploring.... I thought I was amazing to get on the ridge that separates the human starting area with the rest of Elwynn. Swimming from Westfall to Menethil around level... 20 I'd say. Oh, there's a train? Oh, and Darkshore to Azshara. I couldn't even land a mind vision on the mobs there. Luckily, I did know about hearthstones though.I still love exploring areas. Imagine my joy when I discovered hunters' eagle eye ability :DI'm gonna miss sneaking into all those areas when Cataclysm revamps the world.
