My friend was in the beta for this game, and constantly told me how amazing it was and that I just *had* to get it. It already had a reputation for being incredibly addictive, so I staved off signing up until college was over, 6 months after the game launched.I got a trial key from my friend and asked his advice on what character I should play, wanting to have a melee fighter. He suggested a Night Elf Rogue, since they guild needed one and "nobody plays NE Rogues anyway, so you'll be fairly unique".I had so much trouble learning the rogue back then, stealthing and trying just to survive a battle against a single mob. I was amazed at how beautiful the zone was, and Darnassus just blew me away. I remember leaving to go to Auberdine and realizing for the first time that I had spent the past week running around a GIANT TREE! I was hooked and bought the game immediately.I thought that Teldrassil was a fairly big place, and when my friend told me to come to Red Rigde Mountains to play with him, I figured it would take me a few minutes to head over there. I took the boat to Menethil and started running for Ironforge alone. At level 13. A few hours later, I finally found myself wandering around IF, looking at how many players were just hanging around the city, and I was blown away again.I love that sense of awe at being a new player discovering just how huge this game really is.
