I saw this floating around the internet and even though I am not the most active player when it comes to World of Warcraft I have been part of it since 2004. I think it's always going to be a game I play off and on. Let's get this started!
Why did you start playing Warcraft?
It feels like such a long time ago considering I first picked up a copy of the game when I was in high school. I started playing because my group of friends were talking about how awesome it was. As someone who played strictly console I was intrigued to try a computer game.
What was the first ever character you rolled?
I was THAT Night Elf Hunter idiot. You know the one who always had their pet on aggressive. The one who would cycle tab and pull extra monsters then feign death killing the group. The one who would right click the boss in Molton Core forgetting the doom it brought upon the 40-man raid.
Yes, I was the typical horrible Night Elf Huntard. I eventually improved but to this day I look back and laugh so hard over everything.
Which factors determined your faction choice in game?
Oh dear god it's another one of those moments where I have to be one of those people. I loved Lord of the Rings and Legolas. So I picked Alliance so I could be an Elf Hunter. By the time Burning Crusade released all my new to MMOs quirkiness was pretty much gone and I rolled Horde and have been Horde for the most part since.
What has been your most memorable moment in Warcraft and why?
I would have to say grinding ranks in vanilla with a group of friends. There was something special about PvP back then.
What is your favorite aspect of the game and has this always been the case?
I would honestly have to say huge raids were my favorite aspect. I loved the feeling of working together with a larger group of people. Not just the 40 man raids but I enjoy 25 man raiding, too. 10 man just doesn't feel right but I understand not being able to find a full raid so 10 is easier.
Do you have an area in game that you always return to?
I would really say I return to any one area but there was a time when Green Dragon's felt like home. Nothing like racing other groups and guilds to take on these dragon's. Camping their spawn points and wiping until you killed them. Sometimes I look back and realize they are no longer in game and the area feels sad and empty.
How long have you /played and has that been continuous?
I don't have an active account right now as I am waiting for Warlords to release. But I have 16 characters ranging from 80-90. I have logged a lot of time into the game.
Admit it: do you read quest text or not?
No. I am sorry! I just don't. Maybe one day I should. (Terrible!)
Are there any regrets from your time in game?
Honestly, my only regret is skipping all of Cataclysm. Okay, not all of it I did level a few to 85 but for the most part I really missed out and it's always bothered me as someone who really felt like WoW was her home for years.
What effect has Warcraft had on your life outside gaming?
I met my husband during vanilla and I would like to think it played a huge part on my life considering if I never met him I would never have given life to my two children.
