Oct 7th 2011 8:19AM My main is my first and only max-level toon. I rolled a priest on a whim because something about it seemed unique, and human female because my friends all played alliance and I wanted an eyebrow piercing. Once I learned how to become competent at holy, I never looked back. I'm so in love with the play style I've developed with holy, that I get bored whenever leveling an alt, so I just can't get them all the way to max-level.
Sep 6th 2011 12:34AM Wow and I thought leveling as holy during Wrath was hard. Even then people were calling me crazy, but it was my first toon and I didn't know any better. Still, even as easy as I had it during Wrath, I get extremely bored with alts and end up abandoning them because they're all so easy in comparison.
Aug 22nd 2011 3:38PM I'm with you, and I don't do half the raiding that you do. My guild is hitting Firelands hard, so we don't have the time to do any of the last tier raids, so unless I join a PUG on a whim, I don't ever set foot in those raids. Still, I like to get as many VPs from regular heroics as I can because trolls PUGs can still be painful, and I'm just *so* sick of the same 2 dungeons over and over again. I run 2-3 trolls per week with guild groups and that's it. The monotony is more tolerable with a group of friends, after all, and 2-3 runs is about all we can get in when all of us are online at the same time.
My raid leader has been trying to set up teams to do BwD or BoT to gear up like your guild does, but for whatever reason, there's no interest. But I'm so sick of the trolls that I'd definitely do those raids every week in order to cut out even the limited troll runs I'm doing now.
Jul 8th 2011 11:15AM Why does the king need me to steal catfish for him every few days or so? Can't he just order the fishermen to give them to him?
Jun 24th 2011 10:27AM Dornaa, for sure. I wish I could go to the Exodar and check up on her watch her shaman lessons or whatever.
Jun 13th 2011 10:50AM When my main, a holy priest, had both Whitemane's Chapeau and Robe of Doan at the same time, it was incredible. I didn't want to take those clothes off, and I held on to them for a while and wore them as a set of "city clothes" like memr0yburn does.
This was back at the beginning of WotLK, and I have a couple of friends who still make fun of me for it.
May 25th 2011 11:01AM I'd also like to add that I was recently explaining the game to a friend of mine who is in no way a gamer, but has an academic interest in virual worlds and online identity. I was showing her my character on the armory, and the conversation came to what it means to role-play and not role-play. Two things happened at this point: 1) I felt like a liar when I was telling her that my in-game friends and I don't role play, and 2) It didn't make any sense to her to *not* role play.
She didn't understand being in a virtual world and not fully immersing yourself in it. The idea of "Hi, I'm a regular person controlling this character" seemed at odds with the fact of being in a virtual world.
May 25th 2011 10:37AM I do like to think about how my character would react to things. She doesn't have a backstory, but, for example, I like to think that--as a healer--she wouldn't run into a village and slaughter people just because they're "suspicious." She was also a firm believer in the cooperative effort to take down the Lich King that was the Argent Tournament, and as a result, spent levels 78-80 almost exclusively there and so sometimes still wears her Crusader title. Also, there was no way in hell she was helping out those jerks, the Frenzyhearts.
She also has a spot she likes to go to relax and get away from it all sometimes: the bottom of the waterfalls outside of the Lost City of Tol'Vir.
May 18th 2011 11:38AM Not strange, but a guildie and I one day spent about an hour or so looking for the perfect mushroom in Zangarmarsh for the achievement.
In case you're wondering, there's the platform partway up the stem to Telredor.
May 12th 2011 2:05PM You've all hit on some great sad quests. I'd like to add some of the quests in the new Darkshore, like when you get sent into the Auberdine and see all those familiar old NPCs dead. The body of the flight master laying there especially gets to me. So many memories of that town.
There used to also be a quest in there where you had to find that guy's former lover and you fight her ghost. I don't remember their names. You bring the locket back for him and her ghost appears before him. His sobbing always really got me. That quest alone was a major reason that Darkshore used to to be one of my favorite places to level, despite all the tedious running around you had to do.
