May 21st 2008 9:18AM When I first bought WoW, I didn't like the game very much.
It was mostly my own fault, I didn't bother to learn to play properly. I didn't know I needed to get training or how to buy stuff from the AH, or how to distribute my skill points properly, if at all. So by the time my first toon hit 20, it was an under-powered mess of a human warrior who was having a very difficult time completing quests at his level.
I found out about Glider and bought it impulsively (just like I had bought WoW) leveled that human warrior from 20 to 24 (impressive, isn't it?) with the help of Glider but quickly got sick of that as well and just quit it all. A few months later I decided to give WoW another try, I deleted the human warrior and started playing (as opposed to botting) an undead lock. I don't know if it was the switch to a ranged class or the simple fact that I was playing the game properly, but I wasn't feeling the need to use Glider at all, and I was seriously hooked on WoW. Since then, I've levelled a couple of toons to 70 the old-fashioned way and feel that I'm 100% legit. I'm not scared of Warden or any other spyware Blizzard may scan my system with, I've been "clean" for years. What DOES scare me is if that they get their hands on the list of Glider customer transactions and start banning all accounts with matching credit card numbers.
I've got over 1000 human hours "invested" in WoW and I would hate to see it all erased.
