When I started playing WoW in vanilla, I had a serious lack of identity within the game. I've always been a fan of melee classes, but the choices I had just didn't speak to me. I flip-flopped between Rogue and Warrior, while dabbling in the other classes here and there. It didn't help that I wasn't that crazy about the races either, except for Gnomes, but my friends played Horde.When BC hit I found a favorable Horde race in Blood Elves, and while I've always loved Paladin characters from a lore perspective, the BC WoW Paladin just didn't do it for me. So I ended up with a Blood Elf Rogue main. I enjoyed it, but still felt a sense of detachment.Then along came Wrath, and with it Death Knights. At first I just wanted to try it out to see what it was like, but as soon as I did I knew I was rolling a Death Knight main. Everything from heavy armor, to lifestealing, spells, minions, and the option to dual wield or go 2h, it all resonated with me. It was the first class to "click" with me and I enjoy it more than any other class to this day. I also love the lore of a fallen paladin struggling with finding his own redemption.My previously-Blood Elf DK is now a Goblin because the one constant I've loved since vanilla was the quirkiness of Engineers, and I don't see myself looking for a new main anytime in the foreseeable future.
