Jun 13th 2009 5:33PM Runescape, is what you're probably thinking of. I tried it, it's horrible.
Jun 13th 2009 5:14PM My main (dwarf priestess) was based off of myself, but my rogue is a re-working of a D&D character. As for RP age, I haven't worked out exact numbers (see above issues with conflicting lore for race ages), but I see my Priest as being an adult, almost to the age that her family's wishing she'd settle down sometime soon and find herself a husband, but she's made it clear to them that her dedication to serving the Light and making Azeroth a safer place is more important right now.
My Rogue is human and in her early 20s, she's at the crossroads of "rebellious teen sneaking around and picking pockets because it gives her a thrill" and "taking pride in her abilities and putting them to good use".
My Draenei Paladin is very young, not so naive now that she's seen the worlds and fought some dangerous foes, but she is still young enough to be idealistic and not remember much of happy life in Shattrath. Her life goal is to become a Shield of Velen, but she is currently a devoted Argent Champion.
Night Elf ages are hard to determine, but my hunter is a mature adult, though she has spent most of her life in the wilds with her animal companions, so she does not have a good grasp on social graces and politics. She has, however, in the past couple years, fallen in love and married a fellow adventurer, a NE Warrior.
Jun 13th 2009 4:17PM I do that too. My first WoW character was a dwarven priestess. Female dwarf because I am female and short and stocky, a priestess because my favorite class in any RPG is a cleric/healer type.
Jun 11th 2009 1:19PM Having worked retail in an electronics store before... people will actually do that.
Jun 7th 2009 10:27AM I was in a pug group that decided to do a nostalgia run through old Naxx before it was moved and changed for WotLK. We were going fine until somehow we managed to kill Noth the Plaguebringer while he was up on his balcony. No one could loot him, and the doors to the next room didn't open.
The raid leader put in a GM ticket, and a few minutes later a GM showed up. The character was just a plain night elf in simple-looking clothing. The GM tried a few things, like teleporting the master looter up to Noth's ledge, but Noth was still unlootable. We didn't care too much about the loot (it was old lvl 60 stuff anyway), and the GM went to work on trying to get us through the door. In the end, the GM just teleported the entire 30+ people in the raid one at a time to the other side of the door and we continued.
May 17th 2009 1:09PM It's the fate of all tech support/customer service people, we only get called and talked to when people are pissed off about something. Sadly, after a while, you either begin to loose faith in the company you represent, or faith in your customers (or humanity in general).
So, as a tech support/customer service person myself: yeah, it's WONDERFUL to get messages/calls from people thanking you for your hard work and saying how much they appreciate you! :)
May 4th 2009 12:00PM I agree, it was horrible, My guild went as a group of 8 into BGs to try to get the achevement, and while having a pre-made group helped a bit, it still took us 5 hours of frustration to do it. We would have liked nothing better than to either help win the BGs (which we did do as soon as we got whatever we needed from the specific BG, unlike others who would leave the BG as soon as they got their achievement), or to avoid the BGs altogether, but we're a group of mostly PvEers who have worked very hard all year to get the Holiday achievements, and not just so we can get the Mount, but because we like doing achevements and getting the titles.
Feb 2nd 2009 11:44AM I agree, my Draenei Paladin was my first character (even though she's the 4th one I leveled to 70) to ever get exalted with the Argent Dawn, so I am working on getting her the rep with Argent Crusade for that title.
