Oct 18th 2011 9:44PM I remember wanting Divine Spirit so bad that I stuck all my points in Disc while leveling during BC. Realized it was useless and almost deleted my priest. Instead, I said "if I don't like shadow, I'm out of this class!" And I went shadow and loved the hell out of it so my priest remained my main for the rest of my time playing WoW.

That is all.
Apr 27th 2011 8:11AM I'm actually currently taking off from Azeroth.
I let the game lapse because I could not afford a newer-ish computer to play the game with any kind of fluidity and it just killed the appeal of it. Plus, I was much more of a PvP-er so, any kind of "omg it was lag!" Was just intensified and it became a hassle to play.
Plus, I got re-interested in my Xbox 360 and got a girlfriend, moved, and started a new job.
RL stuff got in the way. I don't really miss it, but I know that if I could go back and have fun playing the game again, I would be back.
Apr 22nd 2011 9:30PM Here's how I got used to leaving WASD: unbind them.
Don't use left or right turn on the keys, learn to use the mouse. I only have left and right strafe and forward movement bound to keys. All turning is done with the mouse.
As someone said above: mobility is the key. If someone can't track you, they can't hit you.
Apr 12th 2011 2:03PM The first week that I played WoW I was leveling my priest on a new server and the guilds and groups were looking for a healer. At the time I was under the impression that disc was a great spec because you got Divine Spirit (2.1 or so) and so I was leveling disc/holy in the lowbie zones.
A group for SFK forms and is asking for a healer and one of them spotted me. I had never healed before and didn't know what to do so I went in and... immediately got the group killed because I was incompetent. I was so scared and nervous that I immediately dropped and alt+F4'ed and didn't play for the rest of the day.
Later I got picked up by another group and they were patient enough to teach me how to heal and from then on I was that lowbie, leveling guilds go-to healer and I loved SFK.
Much later on I turned to the dark side and have been shadow ever since (except on occasion), but, yes, I lost my nerve before. It's not hard to do when you realize that other people are playing and they will remember if you suck. Now, with the dungeon finder, it's much more difficult to take failure seriously but when realms were their own little dungeon-running ecosystem? Much more on the line.
Feb 13th 2011 2:40AM Actually, my computer is dying fast and WoW just can't even run enjoyably anymore. Luckily, I just bought Transformers: War for Cybertron. That will rule. Possibly also trying to play Fable 2 and generally dicking around in the wastes of Fallout.
Feb 8th 2011 6:43PM I remember that I was incredibly proud and glad to have done the Blood Elf Paladin Charger quest on my... BE Pally. Anyhow... I thought that it was a great quest and really was cool that I was able to do something that no other class got to do. I keep wanting to go through the game as a Tauren Pally to see if something like that has been implemented because something like the Sunwalkers seems like they would need a bit more lore to feel really integrated but, from the sound of this article; no, they haven't. Really a shame.
And the eye of Divinity? I never got it but a guild mate of mine bought and gave me the Eye of Shadow because he thought it would be cool. Now, I would have loved to have done Naxx during BC when I could have gotten Benediction/ Anathema but it was still a giant pain in the ass to even GET there at that time. Too bad, really.
I can't stress enough how very little the classes feel different once you know your role. I'm a tank; I get hit, I am melee. Got it. I am a healer; I heal, I try not to get hit. Got it. I'm dps; I hit things, I might do an interrupt if it will help, I will try not to break CC. Got it.
Feb 7th 2011 12:16AM I used to have a lot more...
That said, I have mostly costumes and fun stuff from world events and other things that I liked. I even made a plain copy of the letter from the first time I did Children's Week with the little Blood Elf girl because I thought it was so sweet that her little story gets tied up that she gets chosen to be a Blood Knight and takes part in the story that we all play through. It's like Pinocchio. She was just a little nothing character that was there just to fill a spot and then she actually becomes a part of the world; her story doesn't just stop when you turn her back in.
Yes, sad as it may sound, I do keep things in a video game- one that I can't even control when I get to see them or how long they'll be around- for sentimental reasons.
Jan 20th 2011 12:34AM I asked in guild chat which to level: priest or paladin. The unanimous answer was paladin. Fortunately, I mostly PvP and with all these buffs... I'm going with priest anyhow. Shadow ftw... forever.
Jan 17th 2011 12:20AM I was the newb when my friends got me into WoW and I didn't play on their server but, after taking the time to play (and become addicted to) World of Warcraft, I moved to their server and had better gear and tactics than most of them. One of my friends came back onto WoW late in Wrath and I was able to help him through dungeons, level his new shaman and even show him rotations, gear and stats that would help him be a better player.
Now I'm trying to get my girlfriend to start playing once I can build her a better computer. Soon... soon...
