It was the summer before BC dropped. I was out of school (college) at the time and spending the 3 month break at a friends place in another city. Our goal was to do P90 (P90X wasn't invented yet) and otherwise I had nothing do all day but sit at his house. I had no job there, and they did, so from 8-5 I sat there watching bad TV. About a month in, some friends of my friends basically gave me their login and said "Hey, while we are all at work, you should play this game." That game was WOW. Over the rest of the summer, I leveled LordSkeletor the undead Warlock. I didn't get to 60, but I had a great time. I stopped playing when school started back up because I had so much to do, but one of my roomates (a guy i didn't know, but it was one of those student apartment where they give you roomates) still played. AS BC approached the hype about Outland and flying mounts had 3 people harping at me non stop to rejoin then, so when BC dropped I did.I played with them for the rest of the semester, but I was not hooked yet. However, my girlfriend at the time (who was playing Godfather on XBOX) saw me and wanted to try. So we rolled some toons together and started playing together as a team. Having someone in the room with me to help me with instance and raid awareness without the work/delay/technical issues of Vent really made questing fun. 4 years passed and we have been playing together since. (except for a brief stint about a month after Cata dropped, due to PUG irritation.)And that's my WOW story.
