way back... almost six years in fact... when WoW was released. a friend of mine bought it and i was watching him play... two days later i had my own account and we were rolling together. we didn't get very far on those first characters because we rerolled on a different server. we wanted to play paladins. leveling wasn't the finely tuned art that it is today, and it also wasn't just a means to an end(game). there were only a handful of 60s on our server after that first month or so, but we couldn't quite level that fast. my awe-inspiring moment came when i, as leader of a small guild and the first to hit 40 in that group, dinged 40. I went to my trainer and learned how to summon a mighty steed dressed for battle (as it turned out he wasn't as battle ready as i thought seeing as how the epic mounts at 60 were decked in armor and all glowy). my whole guild, RL friends included, gathered around in IF in pure awe and excitement. Then we went and raided SFK... I'm pretty sure Arugal cried when he saw all 20 of us pour through the door directly across from him. Things don't get much simpler than that and the game has definitely changed since those days, but that was an awesome night.
