I just passed my one-year mark in the game right after Love is in the Air. That's one year that started with never having seen the game world before, never having followed any quest lines, never this, never that.In one year, I have tried out several different servers, even two different types of servers. I've tried out almost every race in the game, both factions, quite a few professions, and most classes. I've spent more time in battlegrounds than I should have... before doing so gave XP. I've done quests that slowed me down when I could have leveled faster because I wanted to get the story. I've done as much as I could of every holiday event that I could simply because I had never gotten to do it before.I have only managed to get one character to level 80, and I hated the class so much that I've changed to something else now. I do not have heirlooms, nor was I able to accumulate enough massive wealth to fund this new toon. I'm really starting from the beginning again, just with more knowledge of the game world and not such a desire to go talk to every idiot with an exclamation point floating over their head.It can be very frustrating to run into the common mindset among the playerbase that you're either an alt with heirlooms and gold, or it's a wonder that you can get yourself past the login screen if you're neither an alt nor an 80.
