Sep 28th 2010 8:40AM Oh absolutely! Not so much family, but friends. Our little guild consists of only real life friends from all over the country (our friend circle moved all over the NY tri-state area and also all the way to Cali) so it's fun to hang out together in game, catch up, help each other out, and pick on one another. It's probably the main reason I continue playing.
Aug 27th 2010 8:24AM Female here.. my very first character was a female nelf druid. So pretty, how could a girl resist? And shapeshifting? yes! sign me up. Then I got to about level 17 or so and it just didn't really click for me. My friend who got my playing suggested we reroll Horde and give that a shot.
So my first REAL toon was a female troll hunter. I can train pets? Yes! Ranged! Yes! It just worked for me, and also being new to the game the hunter seemed like an easy start.
Eventually I rolled some alts and thought a warlock might be fun - has pet and is ranged also. Hmm I see a pattern here! Warlock is now my main. But those two ladies are the only ones who've ever made it to 80, even though I've tried just about every class now.
Classes that just don't appeal to me at all - warriors, paladins, rogues. No interest at all Every time I try I just don't get very far.
Aug 17th 2010 9:24AM Yellowstone with all it's geysers and pools definitely reminds me of that area of Borean Tundra around Taunka'Le Village.. appropriately named The Geyser Fields. But a lot of the landscape of that zone feels a lot like Yellowstone.
Also, if anyone has ever been to Burning Man in Nevada.. I can't help feeling like we need a Burning Man yearly event in the Shimmering Flats :)
Jul 27th 2010 2:08PM Ooh I am feeling lucky!!!! lucky lucky and ducky.
Jul 13th 2010 8:24AM For the love of god, please Blizz.. please update the female troll models. My poor girl can't even blink.
Jul 6th 2010 1:25PM Balgair I'm in the same exact boat as you! Female with a highly unusual first & last name. No joke, I'm the only one on FB, and a quick google search on me brings up tons of info. I never give out my name publicly because of this. So yeah, I will not be posting in the forums.. ever.
Jun 29th 2010 8:12AM I doubt Blizz will get rid of it, but maybe it's time to work on getting that Venomhide Ravasaur mount just in case..
Jun 22nd 2010 9:50AM Similar happened to me, but the other way around.. tank rolled need on the dps agility cloak which would have been a huge upgrade for me. grr. After over a dozen runs it only dropped that one time too. Good thing there's still plenty of time left :) that cloak will be mine!!!
