My first character was a dwarf, so I started playing, did a few quests, and got to Anvilmar. It seemed like a pretty cool town, and I thought I was starting to see how big the game world was. Then I progressed to Kharanos, and I thought, "Wow, this is a pretty big town, they have an inn and stables and beer, everything a growing dwarf needs!" Having never played the RTS's or read the books, I didn't realize that Kharanos was just another small town.Then an hour or two later, I get an assignment to Ironforge. I took the long walk up the mountain, and was stunned by what I saw. It was huge and detailed and gorgeous and packed with other players; I must have spent two hours just walking around the city, looking at everything, learning what the bank and auction house were, training professions, and just soaking in the beauty. It's been three years now (I started in 2.4.something), and I've started a bunch of alts, but I still consider Ironforge home. The city is largely abandoned now, but I still take the time to go to Ironforge to train, restock, and just hang out.One of my other first memories, from maybe a week later, was when I successfully sold my first stack of Light Leather on the Auction House for 1 gold. I felt like I'd just won the lottery. I could fill the rest of my bag slots and maybe buy a few potions; I was set for life.
