Jul 5th 2006 3:29PM I've levelled a hunter, pally and mage to 60, and by far the mage was my favorite. You conjure up piles of food and water, kill till your mana runs out, drink and kill again. In most places, you can kill without taking a single hit. The downside is that it only works 1-1, or 2-1 if you sheep something. If you get an add, or even worse, 2 adds, you run or die. But 1 on 1, or in a good group, you're a killing machine. If you're working with a really good warrior (who aggros everything) and a priest to heal, you can do some amazing damage. And 99% of the time, you're the top damage class in an instance run. (or first to die if things go bad)
May 15th 2006 3:11PM For me it was the first boss (bat boss) in ZG. Our guild had just become big enough and good enough at the time ZG was first added, and we got to run some 20 man groups there when it was still new, and we didn't know what to do yet. I had run groups in LBRS, UBRS, Strath and Scholo so many times, I forgot what it was like to see something new and have to come up with a strategy to take down a group or new boss.
We wiped like 10 times learning how she worked, but eventually made it. Quite memorable.
Apr 27th 2006 11:57AM WoW is my first MMORPG, and I remember my first character running around Wetands and all of a sudden a new icon would appear at the top. Took me a while to figure out random people were buffing me as they ran by. Since I had a hunter as my first character (didn't everyone?), I couldn't return the favor. But whenever I'm on my mage, I make sure to drop Arcane Intellect on anyone with a blue bar. Especially if I'm waiting for a boat or something where I have time to kill and don't have to worry about an empty mana bar. Most of the time I get the same back from most priests and pally's. But for some reason Druids seen to be stingy with the Mark of the Wild...
Feb 27th 2006 2:49PM The Drakefire Amulet/Onyxia Key quest was a big deal, I agree. But for me, my greatest accomplishment was soloing the entire Deadmines instance. I was pretty high level at the time, but WoW is my first MMORPG, and I considered quite a feat that I learned enough about the game and my character to solo a whole instance.
Feb 7th 2006 12:09PM On an UBRS run, had a hunter who did little more than sit above beast bodies so he could skin them for leather and dragon scales. As a DS leatherworker myself, I was interested in sharing, and asked nicely if he would split. My answer was "you snooze, you lose". Since 12 of the 15 were from my guild, I made this an issue to the raid leader, who told me it wasn't a big deal. I should have left then.
When we got to The Beast, there was some argument on who should grab some BoP blue drops, and this skinner-ninja just grabbed both, and after everyone said "WTF", he replied "oops, accidents happen". Finally they booted him from the raid party, so he proceded to pull all the mobs in the next room and train them to the party, causing a full wipe.
About the only good thing about this is that someone knew the guild-master of the guild this loser was in, and got him booted from the guild. And the last time I saw him in IF, he was still unguilded, and is pretty much blacklisted from runs with the larger guilds.
