I made a Night Elf Rogue and a Draenei Hunter before this.
Neither are with us today (dunno why I deleted either of them).
Started this character shortly before the release of Black Temple.
Somebody helped me out with the Voidwalker quest, then gave me 5g… I thought they were rich. I thought that Undercity was enemy territory, because it looked “so scary” compared to the Blood Elf starting zone.
I didn’t have my own PC, so it was WOTLK by the time I got to level 20… and almost ICC’s release before I made it to cap.
I still didn’t understand raiding, but my guild and I managed to down the Lich King when it was current so there’s that.
I had rolled on a PVP server because of a friend… big mistake, especially because we never met before breaking it off. Noob me had no idea that “PVP server” implied “players can kill you at any time”. Outside of Wintergrasp, being flagged started to make me anxious.
Eventually I met somebody in a random dungeon who said MG was a nice, friendly server. Made a Death Knight, and went to Goldshire because I was told it was the place to be. Amusingly, my first impression of the place was a guy telling a story in-character and a few people sitting around… rather than what it’s currently known for.
Early Cataclysm, I race changed this character to a Troll; another big mistake. Eventually I was able to move this character and my main Death Knight over.
After a while, I race changed my character back to a Blood Elf and changed her name to its current iteration (the previous one was insulting to a deity I now follow).
MoP was great, but I picked up a nasty bit of PTSD due to an incident I won’t get into. I then found myself in an abusive guild… which is a trend that sadly continues today.
I’m kind of lonely now, but at least I’m not surrounded by sacks of piranhas or bothering anybody.
