Nov 29th 2011 10:22PM My turning point was the Operation Gnomeregan event way back in Wrath. I had always had a fascination with Warcraft's lore and characters, but roleplaying just seemed to be... not for me. I spent most of my time on WoW raiding with my guild.
However, when wow.com made that event, I decided I'd give it a go. I made a gnome, joined the guild, and found I really love roleplaying. I still raid every now and then, but roleplaying's become my focus whenever I log into the game.
Nov 26th 2011 7:53PM I myself have three warriors.
My first is Gozzix Goldgear, a gnome, though he is not what most would call a warrior. He is a self proclaimed "Self-protection warrior", using his thick armour and sturdy shield to keep himself safe from danger. Others may just refer to him as a coward, but he shrugs it off and/or runs away from them if they seem intimidating.
The second is Drok Boulderskin, an orc, and a fanatical fighter for the Horde. He used to be a higher ranking officer in the Orcish military, but was demoted to a Blood Guard after "accidentally" headbutting his commander.
My third warrior is Rogik Facepounder, a freelance goblin bruiser. Rogik never had the knack for engineering like his father, so he instead took after his mother and became a bruiser. On Kezan he helped as security in a Kajamite mine, but after Kezan was destroyed Rogik decided to travel the world looking for strange and exotic things to beat mercilessly.
Jul 12th 2011 12:38AM I completely agree. Wasn't Muln Earthfury the leader of the Earthen Ring? When did Thrall take the reigns? I am just so tired of seeing his amazingness all the time, why not shift the focus to somebody else for a change?
Jul 7th 2011 4:05PM Playing a death knight. I always thought "Ha ha, look at those little scrubs and noobs with their flavour of the month class. They're smelly and will be back to their old classes in a week." A few years later I decided to swap realms but wanted to level cap myself immediatly, so what do you know, I roll a death knight and now use my "Dork Knight" as my main. Don't knock it till you try it, I suppose.

...Who? What? Am I being trolled here? I don't even know a Mackenzie.
May 10th 2011 11:13AM I was in a predicament where I couldn't raid, at all. I solved my problem, however, by becoming a roleplayer. It's not as demanding as raiding and nobody tries to bite your head off like in pvp (okay, sometimes they try that). I am usually quite competitive, and roleplaying was completely new to me, so I decided to try be one of the best roleplayers there was. I'm not sure it is even possible to be "the best" at roleplaying, or sure I am even close, but it definitely solved my reverse burnout problem.
May 5th 2011 3:07PM Any news oh the High Society Top Hat? Because I REALLY want that thing, I've got all of the materials collecting dust in my bag since a week after Cataclym's release..
Apr 25th 2011 3:34PM I think this will be cool and all, but I like the trolls, what if we actually force them to extinction?
