The middle of the year is usually a good time to get into MMOs. But if you’re not sure what to play, or you’ve been thinking about returning to the land of Azeroth for a bit, then there’s World of Warcraft: Legion.

The full game isn’t out until the end of August. But if you’d like to give the beta a go, we’ve got 500 keys to give away.

As a small reminder, here’s some of the new bells and whistles that Legion is adding to Blizzard’s long-running MMO:

New Hero Class: Demon Hunter—Unleash the demon within as an all-new melee hero class gifted with preternatural mobility—and the ability to metamorphose into hellish new forms.

New Feature: Artifact Weapons—Smite the Legion with class-specific weapons of lore. Unlock abilities and traits, and customize your weapon to suit your needs.

New Continent: The Broken Isles—Discover the fate of a lost night elf civilization, confront twisted fragments of the Emerald Nightmare, and hunt agents of the Legion in all-new zones. Forge your own path through the Broken Isles as you explore content that dynamically scales to your level.

Boost to Level 100—Come fully prepared to battle the Legion with a level-100 character boost, and fight alongside your friends in this epic new chapter of World of Warcraft—available immediately upon pre-purchase†.

New Feature: Class Hall—Gather with fellow members of your class and unite followers of your order—including iconic characters from Warcraft lore—to carry out missions at your command.

New PvP Honor System—Fight for fame, glory, and a range of new PvP-specific powers as you face the opposing faction in Arenas and Battlegrounds.

[clear]

The main hook for many people will undoubtedly be the Demon Hunter hero class. People have been wanting to represent Illidan’s kind for years, and while your progress and access won’t carry over from the beta to release it’ll be fun to see what Blizzard is doing with Demon Hunters.

Comments

  • Close to 10 years worth of memories but the most vivid memory was more recently bringing together a great group of friends across Australia for warlords and being able to all meetup in Melbourne for one of the guildies birthday and all of us chipping in for a replica Frostmourne

    • One of the funniest nights we’ve had, as with every other guild get together we have

    • My funniest moment was when me and my friend were camping time lost proto drake and we saw a horde guy and we tried to kill him but we died because of our awful ilvl and he got the drake

  • Our guild loves swapblasting each other to death (lava/acid ponds) between pulls on heroic/mythic runs.. managed a last second swapblast under iron reaver on one of our mages who was prolific in getting ppl killed – best part is noone saw it coming and few actually saw me do it.

  • I think my favourite memory of world of warcraft would be 2vs2 arena with my mate from highschool the amount of intense matches that we came up against (we were fire mage and moonkin) we had a lot of fun times either one shotting teams or being one shotted ourselves – at least we got a lot of quick games in

  • Best thing I can think of is needing to rez 90% of a raid group each week after the dreaded SSC Elevator boss, followed in Wrath by the horrific Frogger boss (let’s not even mention the safety dance).

  • It was still vanilla wow, I had a 60 on a PvE server already. Rerolled on Mannoroth PvP. Soon as I got to Stonetalon Mt, 1st PvP zone I went to. A Horde Warrior with Hand of Rag (1st I’d ever seen) came and one shot me. Great intro to WPvP lol.

  • When i first started playing Wow i was stuck in ghostlands and had no way out, i found a guy who said he’d show me the way out if i added him, 5 years later we’re still friends who play allot together. Ghostlands always being my favorite zone ever.

  • Ill never forgot the time my mate and i were going for the achievement to win 10x 2’s in arena in a row, his mum had come to pick him up and we around 5-10 mins into a resto druid arms warrior fight (which we knew was gonna be a long one) when we were 9/10. We managed to hold off her aggro for probably 20 mins and eventually won

  • It was during the early Burning Crusade expansion – Was leveling with my friend while on school holidays on PvP Frostmourne. He was a prot warrior and I was a holy (No idea why we were both spec’ed like that – guessing we were planning to just do instances). Doing quests near the right side of Hellfire Peninsula. This lvl 70 alliance paladin comes ganking us but for some reason he was really low geared and must of reached 70 recently. I ended up healing my friend for like 10 mins + and running around kiting the pally and eventually killed him :D! Started /laughing at his corpse and went off on our jolly way only to get ganked by him and another 2 friends :(.

  • As a noob I remember trying to walk from Stormwind to Ironforge and getting absolutely destroyed in Burning Steppes. This was before I knew there was a train.

  • On my first character a warlock trying to do a quest to get my class clothing, I grinded for 5 hours in a depressing tower with a friend only to have said friend reveal that as a tailor he could make the clothing for me 🙁

  • My most vivid memory is one of my first: Listening to the Lament of the Highborne after giving Lady Sylvanas the necklace gifted to her by her sister. Such a great lore moment for an old school Warcraft fan.

  • That would have to be during a mount run with mates recently and getting Ashes of Al’Ar. I ride it anytime im with them in-game just to rub it in 😉

  • I remember being convinced that I could jump off a cliff in the Badlands… They even offered to jump first, as long as I followed. They did, so I did… then toward the bottom they pulled a parachute… I died.

  • Me and my friend were flying on my 2 person mount. I kicked him off over the horde base in tanaan jungle and he instantly died. On this day the PVP plane was born.

  • Was learning to play and was doing my first Dungeon. Learning the need/greed system – was needing everything and they explained it to me. Jump to last boss and drops a cloak I needed.
    Was kicked from party, everyone /spit on me. Wore it for the next 12 levels.

  • When I was a young noob I tried to get to Stormwind. I looked For 6 hours until I found the road to stormwind. I did not know how to use a map. lol

  • So many memories, but I think my first guild who were also my coworkers at a Bank. Giving tips and advice on playing MMOs, watching the admin officer teach the stockbroker accountant how gold farming works :P. Raid kills were celebrated more enthusiasticly than real life project milestones.

  • When I first started playing, around the tail end of vanilla, I remember leveling my paladin (aooman) all the way to level 34 on DIAL UP!! I have no idea how I managed to do that with the crazy lag.

  • Played all the way through vanilla. Tarren Mill PvP, killed Rag in Molten Core etc. Had an absolute blast.

    Then I walked through the Dark Portal when BC came out. Seeing Hellfire Peninsula for the first time = mind blown. Was so different and alien. My jaw dropped.

  • During raid break, one of our tanks went to Stormshield and went AFK. What he didn’t know is, one of our Mages secretly followed him and swapblasted him into the water. The tank returned to find himself swimming with the fishes. 😀

    • We seriously need to create a Death By X ranking system for our guild.. style points and multipliers included

  • Getting into raiding properly for the first time in Cata (been playing since BC) with my fiancé, and downing Deathwing while he was current content with an awesome guild that we are still with today. That and getting that first epic in BC felt so good!

  • Had to pull out of a 40-man Blackwing Lair raid after our dog fell violently ill (she chewed a cane toad and needed a vet ASAP). I was primary tank, my wife was primary healer and we essentially ruined the raid for 38 other people. The dog was OK, but we were gkicked for putting our dog’s life ahead of everyone else’s entertainment. That night, we learned just how cruel some people could be in the name of epic loot. The incident also triggered a bunch of gquits from nicer guildmates protesting our treatment. Definitely a vivid memory.

  • Raiding with my mates when everyone dies. As the only rogue taking on the last 3% of the boss popping all my cooldowns just to survive. Eventually the boss dies and I’m feeling good about myself. Until someone points out my damage is low for not having poison’s equipped

  • Doing progression on ZA back in BC, everyone dead except the holy priest with the boss at 1%. Managed to kill it with a Shadow Word: Pain tick right as he died!

  • With the intro of two-person mount I tried to ‘drop’ my friend from maximum height and bubble myself to safety (I was a pally). My internet dropped half way and I couldn’t bubble. Logged back in to my corpse on the ground with my friend lol-ing at me.

  • Raid leading my guild 2nd week into Ulduar. Halfway through a fight with XT one of my officers goes “AFK in a high speed chase”. And we’re all like “Okay…”. 2 hours later he comes back. And wasn’t lying. We couldn’t believe it until we saw the pictures.

  • My most vivid memory was teaching my (ex)girlfriend WoW. I watched her through the baby steps; first mount, first max level, first raid, joining another guild and eventually leaving me for a guy in her guild.

    But my guild had better raid progression, so I’m obviously the real winner here.

    • Thats like 55 words but you can just count the top part if you want.

      EDIT: It’s now cropped back to 50.

  • One of my favorite moments of all in WoW was the one thing I was good at in pvp: Sapping people and then evading them. I wouldn’t fight them, but I loved moving up, especially to a group waiting somewhere, sapping one and then moving off. It was like playing silent hunter, sap one, watch them start spamming aoe trying to find me, and move in to sap another.

  • Playing EotS with a ridiculous number of priests and death knights. Couldn’t walk near the centre point without getting mind controlled or death gripped to buggery.

    The match went reeeeal slow because we all felt the only true aim was to sacrifice people to the great unholy chasm below.

  • During vanilla was helping a low level in Westfall. As we’re just about to move into Duskwood, I asked if he wanted to see something funny, so had him run into that house filled with the invisible ghosts and told him to use an AoE. It was mean, I laughed.

  • hELLO I REMEMBER WHEN i first started i asked how to join a guild somone in trade yelled at me to type alt-F4 and i could make my own guild well i did lol ..BOOm everything went black and my wow closed i was sucha newb

  • Ok this goes back to Wrath and my guild was Raiding ICC and we were learning the Blood Queen Fight. I was Assistant Raid Leader and we had mage who wasnt never the top dps in any fights. Ive got the Bite order set and everyone knows what to do when to do it. The first person bitten happened to be the mage, he was so shocked his just stood there for a full 10 seconds doing nothing. So i yell out over vent ” (name) Attack god damn it!” to which everyone else just started pissing them laughing causing a wipe. because i dont wear headphones and instead use speakers my guildies heard me at the same time as sounds from the fight was going on

    edit: Woot at least with competition theres no chance that the keys will end up on Ebay!

  • Another memeory was me teaching my brother to play at the end of wrath just before cata came out. he was never a fan of video games, but i mangaged to get him hooked with wow and still plays regularly today along with me

  • Late in 2008 I started playing and made a Night Elf hunter. Eventually I ended up in Darnassus. I distinctly remember needing a portal to Ironforge. Trade chat: “LF port to Darn PST” I posted a few times then was whispered “Dude….you’re in darn already…” The embarrassment was palpable.

  • Most vivid memory… playing through cataclysm with the wife. It was about the time that Lonely Island released the song “I’m on a boat”, and when we got to thousand needles we blasted the track and sung along while trekking around the newly flooded area.

  • Missed raid due to dinner with friends, came home *very* drunk and hopped into Mumble while guild were doing mythic prog.

    Me: “QUICK POP HERO NOW, NOW HERO GO”

    *shaman pops Heroism*

    Raid leader groans and tells me to f*** off. Ruined attempt. I cackle maniacally.

  • Vanilla raiding AQ40 C’Thun. It takes fooorever to corps run back and buff for the next attempt, like legit 10 or more minutes. Patiently waiting and buffing when some ADD kid rogue jumping around jumps in front of the boss door, starts encounter, runs back to us and we all die to chain lightning.

  • I got another good one. the game came out over here on the 24th of November 2004, my Birthday was the following day. i had never played an mmo before and the only rpg i had ever played was Diablo and Diablo 2. Cue me making a Tuaren druid and proceeding to play the game like it was diablo, furiously clicking my mouse and wondering why the hell my druid wasnt swinging as fast

  • My funniest memory would probably be back during BC just after finishing a ZG run when we were running heroics. We needed a tank as I was a holy priest, saw that the Guild leader was on (Who was a prot Pally) joined his ventrillo channel to hear him having the cyber nasty with one of the guildies. That was weird for a time, but the rest of us had a brilliant time laughing about it.

  • A’Lar progression in The Eye- we wanted to use the phase 1 adds to drop alars health in phase two so we adopted the suicide druid strategy where the tank would hold all the adds in phase one than the entire group would aoe all the first phase adds instantly killing the tank.

    Hilarious watching the tank take one for the team. ofcoarse the entire guild taunted him during the process.

  • Back in Vanilla in MC! We killed Ragnaros and were so damn happy about it, everyone frozes IRL only to notice that there were still banished Sons of Ragnaros

  • My first character (and still my main) in Vanilla was a Paladin.
    I didn’t know any better and leveled 1 to 60 as Holy, sword and board.

  • My fond memory was early on playing wow during Vanilla. I was added to a guild by some of my RL mates, within weeks I was fully accepted into this awesome group and was traveling interstate to meet them. Some of these people are still close friends to this day!

  • I’ll never forget the first character I ever got to 60 with, back in Vanilla. Eastern Plaugelands on a priest, farming random mobs. After such an effort to reach 60 back in those days, it will always be a memory!

  • Right near the end of Mists I was able to finally upgrade my PC. I went from the lowest graphic settings to something near high. It was amazing…all detail, shadows, lighting and the Shrine of Two Moons was gorgeous.

  • As a returning player my most vivid memory is being the underdog that didn’t make the BC raiding cut in my guild, starting my own with a ragtag bunch of misfits and actually beating them to clearing Kara. That feeling of accomplishment is driving me to come back for legion.

  • My funniest World of Warcraft memory is when our guild fought the lich king and then we all got knock backed over the edge

  • Most vivid memory is sitting in a tattoo chair for over 40 hours having Arthas, Illidan and Deathwing permanently inked into my skin.

  • My guild and I were grinding away in vanilla pvp system, it look 3 months of hard work and jobless at the time gave me lots of free time, the greatest achievement in my wow experience that i reached high warlord rank 14 during that time only 1 person in each faction were allowed to be rank 14. after all that i only just found out we can use them cheap potions to be used in battlegrounds. for real!

  • Me and my friend were pvping on a mountin by storm wind I was a druid he was a dk I typhoon ed him off and gripped me while falling we both died and we couldn’t get to our bodies he got on swifties stream donated and he came to res us it was awesome

  • Me and my mate were having a how far can you slowfall across stormwind from the mountain nearby. He said he was ready so i told him go ahead only for him to go crashing straight to the ground. I never used slowfall on him. We dont talk much now.

  • I took my partner to see the movie without her knowing what it was about. I enjoyed it, but I am not sure if it was worth the wrath afterwards…. ‘What the hell was wrong with just taking me to Finding Dory?”

  • I used to be an officer in one of the top horde guilds on the Frostmourne server back in Vanilla and I had someone make multiple accounts to abuse me after kicking him from the guild claiming I had “ruined his WoW career”

    WoW is not a real career.

  • Each and Every mythic kill in HFC.. been playing for 8 years and only in the last 12 months have i attempted mythic raids, now in a raid guild full of nutjob DPS, psycho tanks and our ever patient raid leader and healers (remember these are the ppl not to piss off )

  • ive been playing wow for a long time now and momory is what got me into wow is the leeroy jenkins video it was the funniest thin and till this day i still think about it but alot of great memories with doint raids and awesome time in pvp with rogue and warrior love 1 shotting people

  • Molten Core….We had that 1 stoner Hunter who was such a great guy that everyone would let it slide when he would say those infamous words “Hey has anyone seen my pet” moments before the boss train would wipe us 😀

  • I remember playing the original beta…being my first MMO I was truly blown away by the scale of walking between areas and nothing loading and have millions of other people all playing the same thing.

    Oh and Nightelf Hunters for life!!!

  • Running from Tirisfal Glades to Mulgore as a level 1 in Classic and TBC because ‘dat ambiance.

  • I went to a legit RP wedding on my old server, Sisters of Elune. Wore my red suit from the Love Is In The Air event. It was a rather serious occasion, until their vows when the groom proclaimed, “I will cherish our onion,” making everyone in Stormwind Chapel /snicker.

  • Probably being server first on Blackrock for downing Ragnaros. It was about a month or two of solid effort, we had cascaded instances and geared up a lot. Took 9 warriors and 8 rogues and killed him before the sons of rag phase. Was ultra cheese but the feeling is something I’ll never forget.

  • My most vivid and funniest memory was in Darkshore while playing as my first character, a Night Elf druid. It was a time of open pvp and Horde were invading. We fought them back and had them on the run. The last invader was an Orc mage, fresh out of mana, low on health and swimming into the ocean. I cast Entangling Roots just in time to get him killed by a combination of water mobs and drowning!

  • Raiding MC a rogue back in Vanilla full T1 after wiping on Rag for hours, the raid leader fell asleep missed the kill and due to his own weird DKP rules he missed out on loot due to being ” AFK”

  • I love to tank, but my confidence was shattered when I barely scraped through bronze proving grounds for tank. I queued my Blood DK as DPS for my first heroic, and the rest of the party wiped on Roltall… who I then soloed. I started queuing as tank after that.

  • Funniest moment was in Naxx40 back in Vanilla. We had one of our guys afk in the main room during an attempt on KT – he came back half way and killed Mr Bigglesworth and KT did his line and the member got gkicked. Hilarity ensued on Ventrillo

  • Back in the days when most of the servers still down because of the maintenance we did 40-man raid full of 1lvl’s and rekt hogger 🙂

  • I was about to finally hit max level, i only had to do one more quest. Then for whatever reason a raid of allys corpse camped me and most of the spirit healers. Fun Times.

  • My favorite memory in WoW was during Wrath of Lich King camping the rare spawn “Time Lost Proto Drake”. World PVP was very popular during those days. After 5 days of camping it, it had finally spawned! I ended up fighting two alliance players while killing the rare spawn. This is my favorite mount to date because of how intense the thrill of getting it was!

  • Was on /follow in Tanaris with a mate, he took me & another friend off the cliff into Un’Goro Crater when he was al+tabbed out with auto run on, we joked about that for years afterwards. Good times.

  • Accidently posted this as a guest.. so ill post on my account

  • I got drunk one night at a mate’s house & created a WoW character. I couldn’t even tell you what class it was, this was years ago, before I was even married.

    Good times though, I love character creators.

    I’d give WoW a go but I’ve never owned a gaming rig.

    That’ll change by month’s end.

  • Honestly, doing the Shattered Sun Offensive dailies with my brother and our friend. We all set up our computers in one room in our basement and had one of the most fun summers we’ve ever had. So many memories. I loved BC.

  • The time our guild killed Heroic Archi for our GM who had been gone for several months and didn’t have his moose yet. Our guild all lined up in Moonglade and gave him a salute as he walked towards the lake to get the moose as a thank you for all he did.

  • My favourite memory was first playing World of Warcraft. It was my first RPG so I was incredibly confused, but I was amazed at the size of the world and I just ran around and explored for my first few hours, despite dying a lot.

  • Still remember the time I discovered wow, back in 2005 I was 13 year old that was addicted to Runescape, I was in Dicksmith and they had playable wow display up. I spent like a hour in that store enthralled with it. That’s how a new addiction started.

  • When i use to raid back in the vanilla days (I was 14 at the time) I use to join onto our guild team speak server who were all adults. I never use talk online (broken mic syndrome) because they seem to look down on the younger players and sore its self as a mature raiding guild. One time after chatting to my school friends over vent, I logged of vent and i joined into the TS server for a raid, forgetting to deactivate my mic, whilst waiting for a raid, the server TS went quiet. I decided to do what every 14 year old male does in there room alone with a computer when they are not gaming…… lets just say the embarrassment caused me to give up on my raiding holy paladin and start fresh on new server and never made contact with that guild again.

  • The dodging and snowball throwing at members of your own team to try to knock them off cliffs/bridges in battlegrounds during the first wow Christmas.

  • I don’t think this will help get more subs. I mean I hope so because it is looking a bit drab atm. To many other MMOs out there that are not severely dated.

  • I was playing some low level female night elf walking towards Darnassus when I stumbled across this other guy night elf. I don’t really remember what happened next but… we both ended up with all cloths gone and dancing with each other. At the time I thought it was hilarious, and I still do. But now that I think about it… I was like 7 years old and this guy on the other end definitely wasn’t… 🙂

  • Farming for Netherwing Rep just after BC release, “ooh what’s this? A Netherwing Egg!”. I beeline for the 350xp, and notice another Lock’ doing the same. We make it there almost simultaneously! But I must have had an extra second or so, as our flurried farm fling finished in me fingering the find! (Cough) In my triumph, i performed a /dance, only to realise that in my rush, I had beaten my Guilds Warlock leader to the punch. His character /laughed at me, then, promptly /guildkicked me. That was the end of my adventures with Qualinesti Blood Guard of Laggrammar, but not of Sade the gnome lock, who became a Belf after a few talks with his Doctor….

  • Most vivid memory was acquiring my first piece of tier gear from Gruuls Lair. I pugged a group and tanked my first 25 man raid. I was so excited to gear tier shoulders. Little did i imagine it was the start of many raids and grinding.

  • I remember when I just started playing in the ALPHA version of the game. I just ran and ran like noone else could run from Stormwind all the way to Lordaeron.. luckily there were no mobs or anything! But I was just amazed by the amount of detail (and bugs :P). haha I have such fond memories of that time. Simply magical.

  • My best memories were of that owning 2V2’s in the arena. Man, those were the days. I was a rogue and my buddy was a nightelf priest. Together in Cloak of Shadows we waited till the enemy had no idea where to look for us. And from the shadow we striked! Me opening and going all out on their healer, once he/she was down we just finished off the DPS. We felt like true gladiators! XD

  • Several years ago I was driving to a mate’s house one day when I checked the corner of my windscreen for the minimap to see where I had to go…

  • i can remember back in vanilla WoW in westfall Chasing chickens around waiting for that prime moment when “the chicken is looking at you strangely” CLUCK! lol im not sure if that is the definition of insanity or loneliness! but that what the highlight of my Saturday night!

  • I was soloing on a PVP server. The constant threat of danger was something that always lured me to play on such a server. As I was questing I was just jumped by a pally *back then in Vanilla most OP class*. Me, as a rogue, got him down pretty hard, he had to bubble and heal up. I used Vanish, he had no clue where I was. The hunted became the hunter, From the shadows I got him: Ambush-Backstab- Kidney Shot- backstab-backstab goodbye!., such a rush I almost never felt quite ever again.

  • In vanilla WoW, my Alliance guild had a rival guild that was very rude and elitist to the rest of the server. We joined forces with the top horde guild to drag a quest npc to Orgrimmar so that our rivals could not use him for their AQ scepter quest.

  • Not a funny one but vivid. Prior to the regions being split we used to raid with a multi-national group of German, Lebanese, US and Australians. The Lebanese players all played from a net cafe and during a Blackwing Lair they had to suddenly leave (and subsequently immigrate) due to the 2006 July War between Israel and Hezbollah.

  • Having only started playing in Warlords of Draenor, the experience that stands out the most is easily defeating Heroic Imperator Mar’gok in Highmaul. The encounter must have been almost 13 minutes long and was one of the most grueling but rewarding experiences I had as a new player.

  • Playing rogue during start of BC when nearly everything had sweeping strikes/cleave. Mates laughing on vent as you’d run in on trash to get one shot instantly… It was around this time I switched over to my priest to be a mana battery!

  • Walking around in Stormwind for the first time! Man, those were the days. As a huge Warcraft 3 fan I could only imagine seeing that city in full 3d environment. My jaw just dropped and I remember sitting there for hours on end just watching people passing by.

  • 3 guild mates in Vanilla WoW farming mobs. Mage (AOE), Warrior (Tank) and Paladin (Heals). Mage, always had serious lag issues. He had ½ health…I said he was just lagging on his end – I whispered the Warrior to play along…nek minute…he wasn’t a happy chappy on his next pull!

  • “IT’S LEAVING! GET ON QUICK”

    My partner screams a warning at me and I can see the boat’s slow movement as it starts to leave.

    I knew I wouldn’t make it to the plank, so I had to try jumping past it and onto the boat itself. There were a few boxes stacked at the edge of the dock, and they were my only chance at greatness.

    I jumped on each box, horror filled me as the boat was pulling away from the dock. My last jump towards the boat was short and I regretted it the moment my boots left the ground.

    I landed on a window sill, a ray of hope glimmers within me…right before I slide off of the window sill and into the murky depths of the ocean below.

  • I was doing Forge of Souls dungeon during the WotLK expansion with 4 of my other real life friends and we were at the last boss. We somehow managed to die leaving a hunter as the last man standing. The boss was quite far away and was at 1% HP and the hunter decided to feign death thus resetting the boss. We still sometime bring up this topic every time we meet up and laugh at the hunter.

  • Funniest memory was our first attempt on Morchok in Dragon Soul. 4 raiders of our 10 man team where late, so we decided to try the boss anyway. Half way through we realised we were actually going to kill it, with 6 people no tanks and 1 healer. GG Blizzard.

  • One of the funniest moments over all these years raiding was when we enter in the Serpenshrine Cavern and all raid got wiped after falling down from the lift platform, and it didn’t ocurred only once!

  • Spending a year farming the wrong boss in TK for ashes, realizing, then getting ashes on my first attempt!

  • One of my fav memories will always be my guildmates. We did alot together. From raiding to hunting rare spawns, even celebrating the three of our birthdays with /dancing, jokes and fireworks outside the UC :3 <3 we became good buddies outside of WoW :3

  • My guild planned an old raid in Northrend. One of our mages offered a portal to Dalaran. We all naively clicked away on the portal, only to find it was to Old Dalaran. I levitated just in time to watch the rest of the guild fall to their deaths.

  • The funniest moments I have had in wow come down to one single ability, Dominate Mind or Mind Control. A few examples:
    -Opposite faction trying to gank at the Elemental Plateau finding themselves quickly Mind Controlled off a cliff.
    -While waiting for zeppelins, starting duels when the zeppelin is coming and throwing people off the edge just when it leaves.
    -Waiting for players doing world events that require going into the opposite factions cities and mind controlling them into all the guards.

    These were all great, but my favorite was the huge Fel Reaver in The Burning Crusade that you saw in Hellfire peninsula and dueling people right next to it, just to have them smooshed by the Fel Reaver. MC = Hours of fun!

  • Ganking lowbies in Tarren Mill back when all out warfare between Alliance and Horde was at it highest.

  • My most vivid memory, probably like most people is finally downing the lich king. It was even more impactful for me because I did it with my own guild I created during the time ICC was out.

  • My most vivid memory would have to be Tarren Mill and Southshore PVP back in vanilla. It was an epic experience. I was so mesmerised and terrified at the same time being a level 23 on a PVP server. Found myself hiding in the bedroom in the inn and behind shrubs!!

  • The funniest one that always sticks in my mind is a guildie who, back when flying mounts had just become a thing, plummeted to his death after mounting his horse instead of his wyvern and leaped off the edge of a building.

  • in a raid, guy suddenly exclaims “shit, my girlfriends husband just parked outside” and he isn’t heard from for 40 mins. Comes back breathless telling us how he jumped out a window and hid in a dumpster.

  • My memory would have to be the epic 48 hour + server first raids we did during WOTLK less than a week after it was released. I left the raid to sleep, and came back and still managed to get all 3 server firsts, my favorite being the magic seeker achievement

  • The most vivid memory for me was seeing Ragnaros being summoned in molten core for the first time. This boss so enormous had to scroll camera all the way out and still not able to see all of him!

  • Joining in WOTLK and being carried through ICC by friends with a lot more ability than me, and thinking how epic is the Lich King

  • Killing Arthas for the first time. My biggest hero/anti-hero and the feels when his dad spoke to him..

  • My funniest memory was just before I started playing. My cousin was showing me the game on her main, a level 40 something Night Elf Hunter back in BC. She rode to Crossroads in The Barrens and used Eagle Eye. For some reason, she decided to get a little closer and that’s when two level 70 Blood Elves, a Mage and a Warlock respectively, saw her. They proceeded to spend the next 45 minutes alternating Polymorph and Fear on her. She was furious and I was laughing the entire time. It was so great.

  • My best WoW memory is when I kept getting kicked from dungeons because I was new and didn’t understand the need/greed system. Then a guy came up to me and taught me proper dungeon etiquette. I was and still am very grateful for the help he gave me.

  • Fantastic memories of attacking Tarren Mill in Vanilla. My Hunter, friend’s Warlock and Paladin all in mostly Tier 2 wrecking up the place in a back and forth battle with 50 or so mixed level Horde. Despite just the 3 of us none of us died due to ridiculous use of tricks (and doomguards)!

  • Ok so this one’s a pretty short one:
    This one time I was approached by a priest (I was playing as a hunter) who was pretty persistent that I could heal him. He kept following me around and telling me the same thing so finally I had to turn off the game for the rest of the day to be rid of him.

  • Long time viewer first time poster! My most memorable moment would be back in WOTLK having a warlock and 2 friends go to the edge of ice crown citadel and 1 person spamming trade LFM ICC25 2 SPOTS LEFT! inviting them and then summoning them to their death.

  • My favorite memory is I think that the launch of burning crusade. We were all gathered with my guild has close from the assault of this new land! I remember that my pc was extinguished at the launch of the extension ^^ I could not turn of the night . it’s an amazing memory! 😀

  • When my guild and I couldn’t finish Heroic Ice Crown Citadel, turns out the tank’s cat was pressing his keys. After that, she had to leave the cat outside for the rest of the run.

  • When I kited Kazzak to Stormwind and had blizzard shut the server down because he proceeded to wipe out the entire stormwind. They needed a server restart and I promptly got a warning to never do it again.

  • The Oondasta boss during Mists of Pandaria expansion on a popular PVP server, Huge 40 man groups would run in and the opposite faction would do everything to kill there tank and watch the boss aoe everything down with 1 ability, Great times 😀

  • WotLK we had spent nearly 5 hours on Sindragosa 10 man and we were all pretty exhausted and started fucking around talking trash the whole fight without caring anymore…and then it died and we were all just silent…not a word…and then “So we aiming for realm 1st Lich King now?”…

  • We were having a long night of trying to beat MC Ragnaros. After a long prep via UBRS putting mind control buffs on 40 people, the guild leader gives an impassioned speech to motivate the group. As soon as he’s finished, the guild 2IC’s chair collapses, hits numlock as he falls to the ground and auto-runs into the boss, wiping the group.

  • 40 man raid groups going to Orgrimmar to kill their Warchief for the achievement “for the alliance”! Yelling “for the alliance!!!” Then getting slaughtered by the always superior Horde. Good times.

  • I remember back in vanilla how a member of our guild pretended to be a girl for over 1.5 years before the story didn’t hold up any longer.

  • Running to Goldshire Inn..finding a nightelf and a dwarf roleplaying, and I mean SERIOUS roleplaying, in one of the chambers I had a quest in. That scarred me for life.

  • My best memorie is running around BG’s as a priest. I was adored my many, but hated as much by the opposite faction. Getting to rank 14 on my priest in Vanilla was one of my greatest achievements and memories in the world (of Warcraft).

  • My guild attacked HFC on mythic. We tried to progres Kormrok. The last phase of the battle, only few guys survived. When the boss had 1% of HP runes exploded. Everyone thought it was a wipe, but DKs at the last minute finished off Kormrok using Purgatory and then died.

  • Playing the BG with the tanks and sieging the forts. Sometimes you’d win within a minute or so, orther times losing to as a close as to 1 point was devastating. Then again, storming the main objective with 4 buddies in siegetanks and dps’ing those gates down so fast was a blast.

  • Epic Battle in the elemental Plateau in Nagrand right after burning crusade came out. Started out as just some farming elementals and turned into a epic 20v20 PvP battle! The battle was what real PvP is all about, not grinding or getting sweet epics, just PvP for the sake of PvP!

  • My best experience was when Swifty arranged an attack on the 60 man multiboxer at the Vale of Eternal Blossoms horde base. We had like 5 full 40 man raid groups and attacked the multiboxer at once. Unfortunately we lost, but it was my best experience on the game.

  • For me the most funniest thing was when friends of my brother with which I was playing WoW for around 2 years realized that I’m his brother… It was like ,,Oh, So he was hiding you under a rug or blanket for all of that time?!” | Maybe it isn’t memory directly connected with WoW content, but it is connected with playing it. Beatiful times of WOTLK <3

  • During one dungeon run,Caverns of Time: Escape from Durnholde Keep , we all charged ahead to the meeting point and someone forgot to talk to Thrall in the prison and then we all raced to the farm without Thrall, spent hours backtracking and searching for Thrall,he was dead by Captain Skurloc since he fought them himself for so long lol

  • My favourite memory was when elemental shaman first got the spell Thunderstorm. I spent days in Eye of the Storm launching unsuspecting players off the cliffs and into the abyss while laughing maniacally. Good times

  • The most vivid memory I have is killing Heroic Will of the Emperor in Mogu’shan Vault. I was one of the dks doing mass grips for the ring of frost tactic. I almost cried when the boss died….

  • One of my fondest memories would have to be ganking people in Tanaan. Actually that was today, fun times man.

  • Best memorie must be raiding with my own guild. Raiding 40-man dungeons as the guildleader, Being server 2nd was a great feeling when Naxxramas hit live and we were up all night (to get lucky)!

  • Epic pvp Fight in Hillsbrand Foothill
    Only 1 FP in the Barren
    MC people in fire while waiting at Molten Core portal
    4 days battle in AV
    Grinding hours and hours for epic mount
    Doing insane damage with my rogue without any weapon

  • so a bunch of my guildies and I got together and created a cult to a god of a role-playing server while our server was down, once we created enough traction in the server we organised a mass suicide of about 50 people, great way to spend a few hours.

  • The most vivid memory is falling again and again throughout the years in the Undercity elevators. God that running to corpse adventures was time wasted !

  • Sneaking into Orgrimmar as a Rogue and sapping random Horde. Or throwing distraction while they were riding by. Nervously looking for me, little did they know I was on the roofs overlooking them the whole time B-) hahah.

  • My best memories were looking for treasure early vanilla WoW. So excited when I was alone at night around Southshore and I found 1 or maybe even 2! treasure chests. Hoping there would be a green or even a blue weapon inside would make me feel so ecstatic!

  • Playing since the vanilla release beta, the game has given me many fond memories and continues to as I have made many friends who went from in game acquaintances to real world friends. My husband and I continue to play together, but one of the funniest memories I have would be a hunter I raided with. His go to during a wipe was “brb iron fell on cat” or “brb cat on fire”
    OR the hunter that pulled visidus because she was too busy looking at shoes.

  • Best memorie? How about farming Yeti hides for gold. Oh……. my ….god… oh.. my ….god… So many yeti’s … only to get enough leather to get my leatherworking up so i could make epic armor.

  • My most vivid memory of WoW was using an alliance treadblade w/ my friend to annoy my fellow casual raiders. One night we had to pug a tank for H Imperator and when we were outside heading to his throne this pug tank also pulled out an alliance treadblade, we then proceed to spam its obnoxious noise which annoyed many raiders! 😛 We were never allowed to use it again feelsbad..

  • After leaving Wow towards the end of Vanilla, returning and soloing all the previous content we were spending months working on as progression raiding. Particularly BWL and AQ40

  • I can’t believe no-one said “doing a succesful Uldaman run”. If those worked out it was the best times, if not.. well, prepare for ALOT of whining and scolding haha.

  • Making my first Night Elf Druid called Nika I remember running into my future guild mates in Auberdine we decided to go to Stormwind after killing an infinite supply of bears and ended up dying about 30 times in the Wetlands it was a nightmare but we had a blast!

  • Fave memorie gotta be meeting my current BF. We were doing some dungeons together and we kinda just stuck. After 3 years playing WoW he came over to Australia for me and we’re expecting a little one soon. (don’t worry, not gonna give him’/her a WoW name :P)

  • My favorite memory would have becoming exalted with Iron Forge as a Human Mage and getting a Ram mount in Vanilla just after obtaining full Tier 2 and riding around IF and SW like a absolute boss and just the good times of 40 man raids and the good times talking in vent with guildies

  • Kiting Banthar with another Hunter when TBC first came out. Complete strangers, but worked in perfect sync with our Feign Death to shift focus to one another. The kiting went for over ten minutes, and we couldn’t chat. Years later and I’m still annoyed I didn’t friend list them

  • We had been stuck on Chromaggus in BWL for weeks and after a long evening of tries we finally took him down. Of course everyone wanted to check out Nefarian, so we discussed the tactics and just went for it. Unexpectedly we took him down. Truly an epic evening.

  • My best memory has to be the first raid i ever completed outside of LFR. It was SoO Normal and i was doing it to get the heirloom weapon off of Garrosh Hellscream. 2 hours later after many attempts to down Garrosh we finally got him and my weapon.

  • I use to play Wow with my older sister and I really wanted the white hawk strider mount my sister had but she told me good luck took her about a year and a half of farming to get it, and I ended up getting it on my First ever heroic MT run my sister was pissed I just laughed

  • Vivid memorie must be when I just moved to Australie for schoolproject and I had no friends and knew nobody. Then I started playing and goofing around in WoW and met so many fantastic people that are still real life friends to this day =)

  • Being the only girl in my guild I used to get alot of stuff. The top was when someone , when nobody on the whole server else but me, got an epic horse. I got 1k gold from someone and they bought me the epic mount. I’ve never been treated so well by someone my whole life 😛 just kidding, but it meant a lot to me.

  • I was a main tank, protection paladin, during wotlk naxx25 for over half a year and we went in each week and cleared pretty fast so it got boring before it ended. I decided to troll our raid leader by using Divine Intervention on him for the last 3 to 5 percent of the first boss of the spider wing. He didn’t realize that he was DI’d and I egged him on by asking how I died, since DI kills the user, which made him go on a rant over Ventrilo for about 3 minutes to the raid about healing the tanks. Once he realized he couldn’t move or do any action with his toon DI’d, the next words outta his mouth weren’t very nice words, at which point I busted out laughing and everyone on vent was rolling with laughter realizing what went on.

  • Early vanilla I played a warlock. After (finally) completing my infernal quest, I remember feeling like the ultimate badass raiding Astranar squishing lowbies with my new demion. Such a power-trip.

  • It was few years back when people were going for ‘For the Horde’-achievement and especially the ‘Storming Stormwind’ part. We got 3-4 full raid groups and went for it.. soon SW began Horde’s second capital city 😀 It was hilarious to watch Horde players swarming the streets of SW like it wasn’t nothing special.

  • I was dying to get into the new WoD content, so I immediately logged when the servers were up. Out of nowhere my PC bursts into flames. I’m not kidding. I went over to my grandparents house and played on their 1997 computer. Still got to play!

  • My most vivid memory has to be being a new player during the Corrupted Blood incident i was lvl 15 at the time and would die every time i rezzed it almost made me quit the game that was almost 11 years ago =(

  • Most vivid memory hmmm… downing Garrosh. Oh I hated that dude lol! He was so bad for the Alliance but also the Horde!

  • The funniest thing I can think of was in MoP with Garrosh bugged out at 4% – our best run! He was just standing there, axe held high. We had 20 people milling around under Garry’s legs trying to get him to start back up without resetting!

  • Way back in vanilla: After weeks of farming Tyr’s Hand I had everything for the paladin epic mount quest. My brother, three friends from school and I went to scholomance for the last fight. It was so damn hard back then. We tried for hours… And in the end I finally had it, my golden epic mount… I was so happy! 😀

  • the first time i ever played wow was during wrath, i chose to be a night elf priest, i was basically noob with a capital N, i died to level 1 enemies, i clicked abilties, i keyboard turned, but i didn’t care because i was having a blast.

  • We were on one of the early bosses in heroic SoO and having trouble with people not speaking up on voice chat for certain mechanics. During the fight when one of the healers wasn’t talking our raid leader said “*healers name* TALK!” The healer misheard and proceeded to wipe the raid by taunting the boss. After we figured out what happened everyone had a good laugh and it diffused all the tension from the previous wipes. We killed it a few pulls later.

    So if you’re ever having trouble on a boss and everyone is getting worked up, have your randomly taunt.

  • My first day in WoW with my brother. Logging in for that first time, and seeing all of the players running around us, turning in quest, hanging out, and killing monsters. The community was so alive and it felt so alien to me. I had never seen anything like it.

  • It was July 15th, my birthday, when I was invited to raid with my guild outside of a raid day. And as soon as I’ve entered Hfc all of my guildies had arranged a “surprise party” that was epic. And I felt so loved.

  • Most vivid memory was downing Raggy. Holy crap that guy was HUGE! Then after defeating him swimming in lava and, hopefully, getting that last piece of armor you needed to complete your armor set.

  • Walking around in Stranglethorn Vale on my hunter, when suddenly popping a flare showed 2 rogues trying to gank me. Immediately I went into survival mode 😛 popping a few traps and kiting them resulting in my very first two honorable kills ever 🙂

  • Started playing a DK in WoTLK in hellfire peninsula and got attacked by an aliance player – managed to jump off into ‘the sunset’ and drag the dude with me ^))

  • Vanilla Warsong Gulch as an enhancement shaman.. alliance flag carrier was in the middle of the map with his whole team surrounding him.. i was on my wolf mount and said to my mate who was lanning next to me , “Watch this”.. as i kamikazed into the middle of the pack and hit the flag carrier with stormstrike! Boom crit.. Windfury Proc Crit Crit . Dead flag carrier and flag returned. Geez i miss the 2hander Enh shammy days!

  • well my most funniest moment is when I discovered moon guard my 2s teammate realm was moon guard and I always like to hang out in the gold shire inn then I enter it but its in moonguard all I see is everyone armor less and little midgets twerking lol I busted out laughing while they asked for gold

  • My first time in Alterac Valley ! I was playing a mage lvl 53 , I enter in the bg , after two hours , I had to leave , I told myself ” Ah, sadly, I cannot end ” I come back the next morning , the bg is still not finished !!

  • Well, one day we had to wait for extra raiders during mythic Gorefiend progression. And the guildmaster tried walk to edge of the cliff and failed. here is the vid: https://youtu.be/190hfkHX1gM?t=29

    P.S

    If you managed to do it you could swap players and kill them without them even moving

  • Best memory I’ve had of WoW, would probably be just starting out in the game back in 2008, playing on antonidas and coming across a certain guild who recruited newcomers. Not long after joining I discovered multiple guildies actually went to the same school as me! Who would’ve thought. I never really met them in person at the school, but I did see them around. After finding them on the game we became really great friends, and continued to play together for multiple years until one by one ended up getting bored and quitting, or growing tired of it until it was just me. I still really enjoy the game.

  • Playing Arena skirmishes with my friend for the first time as a druid, killing the enemy rogue oneshot and winning that first arena. Happiest moment for me personally 🙂

  • First introducing my girlfriend to WoW, we were leveling in the badlands. On our way to a quest, she asked what the blue flags were, and I was confused until 2 alliance guards chased both of us down and killed us.

  • Back in WotLK with less than 10 people, we cleared the entire Sartharion trash before we noticed it was set to 25 man instead of 10 man… hehe… at least it was a challenge right…

  • Always enjoyed seeing people get tricked into killing themselves back in classic molten core. Raid leader would tell new raiders that you could catch a glimpse of Ragnaros by looking through a crack behind Golemagg. Little did they know that this lava crack would instantly kill them… good times lol.

  • Flying in Dalaran, went to rings above highest tower to get a good view. Saw a dead body, but they already released. Didn’t know if he was even online, but being a Holy paladin, I resurrected him. He resurrected after a warlock landed next to him, and thanked the lock.

  • When I was new to the game, I joined a guild after meeting a few friendly people. Every week we would run the Ulduar raid, trying to get the achievements and mounts. Jumping on vent and running it each week quickly became the highlight of my week.

  • Firstly Sorry about my poor English..

    year 2007. WoW was my first mmorpg experince game. I just reach lvl 70 with my retri paladin. I dont know anything about other classes. My friend helping me and he is saying. Careful about Feral Druid. i asked what is feral druid? He said. They transformation to like Lion – Tiger – Cat -cheetah they can be diffrent animals (he started wow 2 weeks before me) I said okay.
    We join to Alterac Valley. after 2-3 min later. I ask my friend to help me. I’m say: I found a feral but he is not dying help me please… He said okay…
    but Feral is very fast runing hard to catch him. We both runafter him long distance…a few minutes later we see the truth. it wasnt a feral.. It was Beast Master Hunter pet 🙁

  • Guild used to go to one of the highest spots in wow, we would usually say we need help with wpvp or killing a rare, ofcorse guildies are so helpful so they would offer their “help” and we would summon them off the cliff to a few hundred foot fall 🙂

  • I remember my first time playing the game on cata, i started as a blood elf mage and i go to the zone where the abomination are, which are elites. I pick up the quest. the quest says recommended 3 players i was in awed. I gathered a group of newbs just like my self to destroy this almighty powerful beast. Even with 3 of us we kept wiping and wiping it was increadibly hard but at last we took it down/ it was freaking great from that time on i was hooked. Then i manage to get to silvermoon where i see all this level 85 riding dragons looking extreamly cool man that was great. now that I’m a 13/13 mythic raider i hope little noobies get inspired by me like i once did when i saw heroic raider ride their dragons around the city.

  • I remember during progression in 25M Blackwing Descent, with the other 24 members dead and Chimaeron at 1%. Popped evasion as a rogue and managed to get him down while the entire raid was screaming in voicechat!

  • Killing Arthas for the first time. My best friend and I were tanking when all members except 1 mage and a druid healer died. Arthas summoned his ghosts and my friend, off tanking, heroically sacrificed himself to the ghosts so we could dps the remaining 5% to end.

  • Like the time my friends said that – to get here quickly from Stormwind to Ironforge have to jump off the subway in the middle of the path . Oh I how I long run to Stormwind=)

  • The best feeling I’ve had was back in TBC, when we as the first on our server downed Illidan, after 23 hectic minuts. Best feeling ever!

    Best regards, Holymoomoo

  • Funniest memory would be when I started playing WOW. As a level 25, I started doing dungeons and was quickly kicked out of every dungeon, come to find out I was queuing as a healer but was not healing… good times. I have since learned how to heal 🙂

  • Had a guild dinner IRL. After the dinner a guildie told us they ran scrabble tournaments for ESPN. Gave us a tour of tournament day before broadcast. Big party at hotel suite, was awesome. Stormfist on Silver Hand – US Horde

  • i missed all vanilla and tbc so cant speak about anything from there, i started playing mid wotlk and i remember everytime the gates of wintergrasp falling was just a mad rush and a huge battle in the courtyard truly epic!

  • One of my best and most recent memories would have to be the pvp in Ashran, seeming not a lot of folks enjoy it. Anyways, our 40 man went for a trem kill against the alliance. While they pushed I set up below the bridge with a small group. Once trem was killed and the alliance poured out of base in chase my group popped a bubble and pulled every alliance in the instance down underneath. If it’s never happened to you, it’s a very disorienting experience and basically they rip’D instantly and had no idea.

  • 6 weeks in half our guild members couldn’t make the final fight, so we pugged and to our delight 5 Banes agreed to help us. They were charming, polite, good humoured and superb players , Our Gm gave complete control to them and they explained the fight clearly so no-one was in any doubt of their role/positioning etc (we had been stumbling around Icc quite a lot previously).

  • I think the frst time I ran around in Elwynn Forest on my first char, and thought ”Wow this place is big!!” and wanted to see and explore every zone. Or the first time I was in Blackrock Depths, no Dungeon Finder yet, just a group of friends from my realm, and it was so new, overwhelming and epic!

  • When I made my first character, a human warlock. I happily ran off into the world and ended up in duskwood, needless to say those level 20 mobs didn’t take to kindly to lowbies entering their domain and they taught me a lesson.

  • Lioren, my hunter, was pretty much my first ‘main’ character in the game. I started this one out as a blood-elf (pretty soon after BC was released). At around level 15~20, we got around questing in the old Barrens / Crossroads, following every little detail of the lore. It was awesome back then 😀

  • I think my funniest moment was when i was in the southern barrens just talking to someone like this:

    Aerska: So what brings you to the southern barrens
    Stranger: I plan to train here and all around the world until i cant take down deathwing
    (Sky goes red and deathwing appears)
    Aerska just got stood in fire achievement.

    I thought it was amazingly funny and ironic.

  • The very beggining, first time launching the game, seeing epic TBC cinematic, then, seeing that glorious Login Screen with WoW’s login screen’s best music ever! That portal… Creating my human rogue, when I first reached Goldshire I was just like wow… I was only looking for hobbits running around 😀

  • The very first week of cata. Racing to 85, doing heroics while decked greens. And the completly chaotic and undergeared raiding on the very next day.

  • Except old memory lane nostalgia i had a blast raiding in cata, great guild and no loot drama at all. Fun encounters and my first exp as a healer.

  • On topic: killing Curator for the first time. Was a step up from the first four bosses and seemed like a barrier. But eventually we downed it and it opened up our way into the next part.

  • I have many good memories from the game it self when it was more fun, but I like the most from the years of playing WoW is how many friends I have met that i still have contact with. Best thing was the people you raided with even if the guild was crap in progress it was still fun when people where more relaxed in raiding.

  • When I dinged 85 for the first time last summer holidays, such an epic feeling 😀 and also when i did my first raid, BoT, and won the shoulder token, was so happy and when i walked into ragnaros’ room for the first time in firelands, it was so awesome

  • Not to be boring, but I think my happiest memory was when I was new to the game and joined my first Guild. I made friends who I’m still in contact with years later, and they were very patient and kind to a Warlock new to the MMORPG scene. It was the biggest game I’d ever played, I had awesome friends, and I could summon demons. It just doesn’t get any better than that.

  • When i first started my paladin in 2005. Just the whole learning the whole game kept me wanting to play more and more, i was terrible mind you.Holy/Ret/Prot paladin in cloth and intel gear haha.

  • Well, i was killed by a orc enha shaman when i was trying to do a quest, so i got mad, i mount my fly mount( I was a fire mage back than) so i canceld my flymount i used slow fall and i put the dots on him..he treied to run away but i killed him too 🙂

  • My first char was troll priest. I started playing in late 2007. And my best memories were in the barrens … so much quests so much friends there i got while doing the quests( i got so messed up lol I still remember the apothecary undead who wanted me to go from crossroads to thunderbluff with a timer i was walking all the way to there and the NPC to whom i had to give the quest was under the bluff i couldn’t find him at first and i failed so many times xD) … good old times

  • Back in Ulduar, we had twin sisters who were both healers. We pulled the crazy cat lady and they started screamin in vent. We wiped and one of them says “BRB Our house is on fire”

  • ICC has to be my favorite memories, first real endgame content I cleared with my guild and the 10 man team we had were relentless in clearing it pre nerf. The LK kill was fantastic and felt like a real achievement, we all still refer back to this as one of the best guild moments and some of the best content in the game.

  • Fondest memory has to be back in TBC when i first started playing, grinding AV for honor points to get my first set of PvP gear. Remember those big orange crystal shoulder pads for Paladins? ^^

  • for me it was when i finished for my pally 1st big chain for 100% mount, ye it was kinda hard, long and expensive.

  • i got my 1st tear, at the time it was just T0,5- also known as D2, ye back in time wasn’t real raider just done dungeons and well it wasn’t easy as it required to looking for ppl on trade just like we do for raids today.

  • I have so many great memories of this game. The first time my boyfriend and i made our first characters, they were undead mages, and i remember being so freaked out and scared because it was so atmospheric..i logged out and deleted her and made a human mage 🙂

  • Listening to my boyfriend..night after night, effin and jeffin down his mic to his raiders!. Original Westfall music ( my favourite zone ).

  • Epic city raids(The best one was,before the flying mounts in Azeroth;when allies raided Thunderbluff,some shaman dudes stayed at the top of the elevator and pushed back whoever comes with that spell of theirs,so .. they wiped

  • The nights I spent with 3 of my friends in Nagrand, just chatting and doing random things. That place was beautiful. Caught some sunrises too, up on those isles. My old TBC guild was formed with those nights in mind and this song I found in one of those nights

  • Raid standing inside the door discussing who knew the dance and where to go. I hit the wrong key and autowalked up to the boss and wiped us all. it was my first BIG oops moment, luckily i got along very well with my guild back then..lol

  • The first time i ever played WoW. Me a little night elf warrior, Level 7. Heading to Iron Forge getting killed 2 times :DDD Then i got there and saw all the Level 60’s! Man i was so impressed. I just stood there for the next 5 days and watched people dueling an stuff. This was the greatest time in WoW.

  • I was level 9 and got a quest to kill Vagash (Yeti in Dun Morogh) who was 11 level elite. Oh God, I got ganked by it for 2 hours.

  • WotLK expansion – We’re done raiding Ulduar for the night but had some people who needed some filler gear and decided to do a cruisy mount run of Obsidian Sanctum 3 Drakes alive and Malygos for gear and mount chances. But it’s late and people are getting tired due to the Guild having players from New Zealand to Western Australia we had to have a specific raid time and the NZ’s were getting tired.

    We knocked over OS without an issue just a lazy wipe – so everyone mounts up and starts flying to Nexus – Our main hunter at the time decided to just point his mount in the direction of the Nexus and grab a drink.

    We all get there and watch him fly straight over and then watch him on the mini-map get further and further away – all the while yelling to him over Vent to wake up or come back. By the time he finally came back his character had flown so far that he was unable to run and collect the body due to fatigue.

    We’d waited for nearly half an hour for him – I can’t remember his excuse but he had to eat a resurrection at the Grave Yard and was unable to enter the instance thanks to the Debuff and the raid had mostly disintegrated by then.

    While a lot of it was “you had to be there moments” as we’re all insulting him in Vent and betting on why he was AFK so long – it’s a raid I’ll always remember because it was a combination of late night giggles and just laughing at the absurdity of it.

  • When I got my very first mount. I was level 45 and the joy I felt cannot be described. Also, I didn’t want to jump while mounted, because I didn’t want to hurt the mount hahaha. 🙂

  • I remember once during Lich King progress our guildmaster went afk mid raid to have sex with his girlfriend, that night we downed the lich king! To this day i’m not sure it was luck or the sexy time!

  • Once I asked a Mage to make me a portal to Shattrath, even if I didn’t know what is that city that I heard of, but when I arrived my jaw dropped to the ground when I saw Shattrath in it’s full glory, and a Human Warrior on a 280% gryphon, and then going through Outland and getting ganked for the entire time (I was level 48) haha, couldn’t fight the curiosity. 🙂

  • Funniest memory I have of wow is getting kicked out a pug raid mid raid because the raid leader’s friend wanted in, pulling a boss, wiping the raid, getting summed by and game master and explaining to them that 24 people were ruining my 1 man raid.

  • Seeing Zangarmarsh first time. Still my most beloved place in this game. Especially at the top of Telredor.

  • Mine would have to be our weekly run in BWL , i used my last rogues deck and boom i got my insane title,everyone on vent was like wtf just happened there lol fun times.

  • Best raid: When I sat my feet in Ulduar for the first time I was in awe and to this day still ranks as my best raid experience ever.

  • Best q-line: The Silithid q-line that originally stared in Feralas and the took you over several zones; Tanaris and Un’goro to end up in Silithus.

  • Best zones: Well there are more than one. I love Winterspring, Nagrand and Storm Peaks. No favorite in Cata really.

  • When the Paladin was Alliance thing and Shaman Horde thing, the best thing ever made, every race had they unique class which wasn’t able to choose on other races, that’s very good memory for me.

  • I remember I was new to the game and my girlfriend was showing me around. I was so astonished by the ability to swim around the game that I thought I could swim all across the ocean to this giant tree. Little did I know, I drowned and my girlfriend and I were laughing are butts off. It was a funny moment as a noobie.

  • I remember my trial account like it was yesterday. Walking into Goldshire at dusk and just standing there bemused that everyone round me actually existed out there in the world somewhere – probably one of the most exciting and surreal experiences I’ve ever had. Felt like the first time I actually understood what the internet really was – as if I could actually see what human progress meant.

  • This one girl started flirting with me suggesting she really “liked” me. Eventually it was revealed that she was threating fellow guild members and no one would speak up because she had “the guildmaster’s (my family ran the guild) baby brother under her thumb”. The whole incident resulted in the guild falling apart.

  • From an artistic viewpoint, probably the first time I caught the ferry into Howling Fjord – I actually gasped. The scale and epicness -wow. Like when you find a �20 note in the back-pocket of jeans you haven’t worn in a year.

  • I would have to say luring one of my friends into the minefield in Storm Peaks when he was new to the game still and watch him flip out because he wasn’t able to control his character for quite a few moments.

  • It had to be when I first did the “For the Horde” achievement. It was so exciting to rush through the gates of Stormwind in a huge group, killing every player and NPC on our way up to Stormwind Keep, where we rushed up the stairs and fought the King.

  • Ulduar in general really. Everything about that place is amazing; the music, the boss models, the artwork, the boss mechanics, the loot, the Raid Destroyer, everything.

  • One of my most memorable moments of WoW was when I first got to Un’Goro Crater on my Shaman – my very first WoW character long long long ago. I didn’t know the zone at all and was happily killing the mobs there for quests and skins. Then out of no where I see this massive dinosaur heading straight towards me. It kills my friend – a Druid. It then turns around and looks straight at me, actually eats my totem then chases after me. Still laugh to this day, whenever I see one, just remembering how it looked bending over to gnaw on my totem. I went back when I changed to BM spec on my hunter to later tame the mighty beast. 🙂 Stuff like that really makes the game for me.

  • My most vivid memory would have to be the first time enter naxx with my guild.
    I was impressed by the raid dungeons.

  • I love the content so much, and how beautiful all the zones are. But there’s nothing quite as enjoyable or memorable for me such as the little things in the game that make it one of the best if not the best mmo I’ve ever played. It’s also one of the most fun games to meet friends on. Some of my greatest friends I have met through the game. And it’s always nice when you meet a new person and they say “so what are you into?” and you list of a number of things then drop “WoW” in there, for them to simply say “Oh me too!”.

  • Back in Mists I would have one of my guild mates get on me while in travel form on my druid and use Falling Flame to launch us off of the mountains. I’d then go into flying form and they’d plummet to their death.

  • Massive mammoth walks in Dalaran each week with both Alliance and Horde partaking. Accidentally killing a low level quester in Amberpine Lodge when doing a daily with my shamans chain lightning (not realising he was there). There are so many memories I have of WoW that there are simply too many to list in all fairness.

  • The last run to hand in the (old) Winterspring Frostsaber RRQ. I have always been fairly casual so having something reasonably rare (About 4 active people on my realm had it) and that I liked the look of made me feel quite good.

  • Getting my first dungeon group together with a few friends and grabbing the rest from trade long before LFG came about, then riding on foot.

  • Cata for me has been a little bit of a killjoy as to me personally, it has seemed very much like a “you can do it all on your own!” expansion, with the nerfing of group levelling quests and so on. So I am eager for mists where it seems they are bringing back more things to do with friends and like-minded players.

  • my very first gold, after selling random crap i’ve looted and skinned from mobs as i started out as a tauren druid. That gold lasted for ages! :’)

  • It was day when i first time took 2000 2×2 rating. It was final boss, 12 min arena and my mate died, and i was 1v2, it was insane fight. Priest and hunter tried to kill me, but I raped them, my holy pall best <3

  • My first ever world raid group. I must have been about level 30? Easily about 30-40 of us just battling it out at the Crossroads… Ahh. Those xroad battles were the best.

  • My best memory, however, was by far my first ever character being a human. I know every zone now like the back of my hand and there’s very few surprises. Back then, at the time, there was an element of fear because you had no idea where you were going. Everything was an exploration. Quite frankly the memory of levelling my first character and experiencing EVERY zone for the first time was the best.

  • When I made my first character “Palakiller” and I constantly dueled paladins and lost. I remember how sad I was back then, but today it’s my favorite memory.

  • The first time i got to westfall. Remember i thought the place was pretty cool and then looking at the map and realising the world contained much more zones.

  • When WoW used to be fun; getting friends, the good old AV, when the game was hard. The outdoor pvp, the effort to get good gear and alot of bg farming. Back then everything was good 🙂

  • My first wsg. remember my friend told me about battlegrounds. Had to run the npcs to get in there after being owned by twinks.. (not a nice memory :D)

  • Forming a group into Scarlet Monastery, after having spent 1 hour to gather party, we headed there, nobody knew where it was exactly, we only guessed, we were really scared when we entered Undead territory .. You dont get to know something like this nowadays

  • I met a nice dude when i was like lvl 15 and he took me to every zone on azeroth on his travellers tundra mammoth. (this might be the best i tried in wow ever). that was just so epic.

  • Funniest without question is my quild trash talks each other in RBG’s and while waiting for the flag in eye of the storm I had a Hunter try to explosive trap me off the ledge only to have me panic enough to disengage and fall off the other side lol

  • Initiating Ragnaros, reading epic words and shaking with terror when he emerges 😀 I bet killing Ragnaros was the most epic pve moment for everybody. Nothing can compare nowadays.

  • Getting my first epic mount at level 60, I had been farming so many AV marks just to buy Frostwolf Howler. And when I got it I was like woaah! Then I realised I had to buy the riding skill…

  • Joining a guild, progressing all the way from UBRS via Zul Gurub into Molten Core, BwL and Naxxramas, having laugh and cry, joy and drama, socialize with people and realm… And again, you dont get to experience these things now 😀

  • Back in pvp season 2 in Arathi Basin, I was on my Draenei warrior and our team had 4 capped and were going for the 5th. My shaman guildy and I were in gm when 7 horde rushed us and we somehow managed to kill them all. Best memory ever!

  • So I was questing in Netherstorm. Just a few more quests and I would hit level 70. I didn’t really want to level yet, as I didn’t have money for flying. So I was planning to farm some gold, I just had to finish this one quest. Kill 10 mobs it said, I was like sure thing. 7 down 3 to go and the loot I got was just stunning, a level 70 epic mace ! So well, guess what ? I sold and bought my flying !

  • The feeling I got when Zulian tiger dropped for me.. Yeah, I was soloing it. Just had to kill him before reset, suddenly halfway fight my friend called me. So I thought well okay, it’s a level 60 boss, I wont die ( remember this was at level 80 ). When I looked back at my screen, release spirit or reincarnation, so ankh it was. Killed the boss and took at look at my new mount.

  • I have so many great memories in this game. Yogg saron, Illidan, Naxxramas… And Iv’e found a great new hobby which gives me a good night sleep, random bgs in pve gear : )

  • After finishing WC3 Frozen Throne i saw advertises about WOW, i went all excited to see the site and considered proposterous having to pay to play (how my opinion changed…), so thats why i didnt started at Vannila, anyways a couple of years later decided to give it a go and played on a US trial account as human pala, was so fond about the game that decided to pay to play, so my first char’s was a Tauren Shaman and a Human Priest, and on a Dungeon i saw a Druid casting a BR (because i had no idea what to do as healer and was leting everyone die) and got all amazed about that, that these days its still my main.

  • When I found out I had a Warlock instead of a Paladin. You can’t have Gnome Paladins, I guess, my bad. But I won’t namechange. Ever.

  • In BC my guild was progressing on Prince, and everyone in the raid had died except for a hunter and his pet and the pet ended up downing the boss, after 3 weeks of work and a bunch of shit-talking!! LOL!

  • defending nathanos blightcaller against an alliance raid in an epic battle.we started with 2 people+nathanos against 10 allies then it turned into raid vs raid slaughter fest more and more people joined both factions it was very close to tarren mill vs southshore battles but more epic.

  • Those random ganks near XR/TM that escalated in total war that went back and forth until people got bored, often quite some time later… Good times!

  • A few memories. I started playing just before WOLTK. The hogger quest, gees that was hard until I cried out in general and a lvl 50 came and helped me! 1st arriving at Stormwind, had to run there for a quest. The city seemed awesome beyond belief and I always got lost there! My 1st raid in AQ40 and SWP, I had a rubbish computer and was running at like 5 fps sometimes! but it felt truly epic being in such a large group:). The Wrathgate quest chain, that was something else. Killing the Dragon in duskwood, sady no longer there:(. Scarlet Monastery and the ganking and PVP at the summoning stone. Sadly miss those times and the great people, many who have gone now, I played with.

  • I logged on to say it was my 18th birthday, several people wished me a happy one. I got talking to one of the people who said it and to make a very long story short… We now live together and have been going out for 3 and half years! I asked her to marry me last year in September and we are due to get married on 19th April 2014 😀

  • At level 60 getting the duel fists from ZG. Turning into a big tiger really got me a thousand whispers or more haha. just the hole level 60 time was epic. if you had some epics you were godlike. Completing AQ40 was serious .. let alone Naxx

  • When i started on last years halloween event, it was so epic to just find so many new places and new things to do, after i got in to goldshire i did some halloween quests and i got hallowed helm, it was amazing to see headless horseman riding and it was so epic to be there.

  • Being introduced to the game by my cousin and brother a few weeks after vanilla release.

  • Racing to lvl 60 with my cousin (keep in mind, we where both young, roughly 12-14 and didn’t have our own PC’s so we couldn’t play for much more than 2-4 hours a day during the weekdays due to school+sports), I did lose the race, however he was lvl 12 when I began playing (which took a few hours to get to back in the day).

  • Being able to buy myself an epic ground mount in vanilla (roughly 900g, which was A LOT of gold back then), and having people ask me where I got that cool mount!

  • clearing all the vanilla raids excluding naxxramas (vanilla naxxramas however was probably one of the greatest raid instances so far, only killed 5 or 6 bosses in there) – maintanking it all on my orc warrior.

  • Probably the moment i found out about the achievement “Down Goes Van Rook”. For about 2 minutes straight me and my mates died as we watched Venruki fail to block that magical day. I truly have never been prouder of a WoW achievement.

  • Entering the dark portal on TBC release and seeing hellfire peninsula for the first time – amazing!

  • Rerolling rogue and starting to pvp in season 1, achieving gladiator in the same season as well as the 2 following seasons, season 1 glad is definetely one of my greatest memories from this game!

  • Getting “the Immortal” on my priest during t7 content, clearing Ulduar the first day of it’s release, amazing place, scoring a world 30th lich king heroic 25man kill.

  • Back in the days (around 2005) when i was farming Target Dummies for Fused Wirings to sell them, expensive on the auction house. Oh my, i racked up alot of gold back then. so i started twinking <3

  • Getting to 85 on my druid which I rerolled to back in the beginning of cata in 1 day and killing al’akir on normal the day after as resto as well as clearing BWD normal the day after, and nefarian normal the day after that, felt great.

  • gotta be back in vanilla when i was very serious about raiding, and i got accepted into a very high end raiding guild. arround the time that naxxramas was released, i was only arround 15 years old so i felt really pro and was truely just happy.

  • Killing Sinestra with 2 healers in 10man me being the maindispeller as well as topping the healing (not counting healing done on the NPC).

  • first week we went SFK as a raid group of 7 of us, we ran that place 7 times before realising you couldnt loot his head in a raid group 😀

  • Rerolling back to rogue in firelands, and then join another high-end guild (Loot FTW), landing a world 26 Deathwing heroic 25man kill, although killing spine heroic was the greatest part of this expansion, such an intense fight and it just felt so great to finally have it done after 100’s of whipes.

  • playing zepelin roulette, where the load times would sometimes be so long that there was a chance you would either be on your way back when you loaded in, or you double dipped load screens and apeared back in Org / Stranglegank

  • On launch day for MoP about 10 minutes into my new panda character I fell through the world down to this spot where there was a whole bunch of other players floating who had it happen to them also. And if you looked up you’d just see pandas falling from the sky

  • We used to play a drinking game while raiding, 1 shot if we wipe. Ice crown raiding got interesting one night with the raid leader falling asleep open mic snoring in drunken sleep with some incoherent ramblings for everyone to hear. Absolutely Hilarious!

  • playing ghost zepelin, where sometimes it would bug and drop you in the ocean to swim back

  • Fondest memories, me and my buddies raiding ironforge in vanilla and tbc, those were the days, now ironforge is just a city no one goes to because for some reason everyone has to be in stormwind, same as the situation wih thunder bluff and orgrimmar tbh.

  • First time I entered Wow after strugling to get an Internet connection, was damn expensive for my country.

  • Me and my friend questing as Night Elf Hunters in Teldrassil, with this, my very first character. We talked on Skype while playing the game, having started a few days earlier. I remember the soothing music of the forest and, knowing nothing at all about the game, we had our little adventures, tried to fight the raiding Blood Elves and had our own little community of unknowing ‘noobs’, the best part of WoW imo. 🙂 I also remember the first time I left Teldrassil, and entering Stormwind and seeing imposing stone walls stand before me… Good times…

  • I still remember getting creating my first character, a Night Elf druid (as I was a big fan of Malfurion), and logging in for the first time. I think I spent 10 minutes just looking at that big tree in the starting zone. That was epic. The ambience of the zone, the pure hugeness of things, the awesome panther models.

  • My next memory comes from almost a year later. I had recently joined a guild thanks to a sucessful instance group, and all of a sudden it was decided that we were to try raiding. Said and done, our little guild managed to assemble a mighty 19 ppl, and with a random dude joining in we ventured through the gates of Zul’Gurub. That Venoxis kill will be in my heart forever. As will the first Hakkar kill which followed about a month later.

  • I remember starting off as a low level Tauren on my first made character all the way back on launch day. Visiting Thunder bluff for the first time and in awe of its size. How little I know of the world at this stage.

  • I really really enjoyed levelling my first ever character, that being Saw the almighty paladin. Everything was new to me, and I’ve always thoroughly enjoyed my gaming. Sadly, my computer at the time was pretty poor, so it was probably on lowest possibly settings, but at least I get to appreciate the graphics now (when I actually play).

  • One last memory would have to be a social one. I was happily mind blasting away at some random scourge mobs in EPL, when I suddenly run into a guildie. We stop for a bit and just talk about random stuff, and after awhile she throws down a campfire. As we sit there a couple of more people run past, and some of them actually joins us. When the two of us decides it is time to abandon camp and get on with it, we realize that there is 80+ people surrounding us, all happily chatting with each other. It felt so awesome that I began discussing the possibilities of building a city on the spot which we occupied.

  • In the far eye sight, between the mass of people, great stone gates were moving, dust and sand were covering the entrance of this new found place. Ready as ever and eager as child in a candy store, I rode towards the gates (anyone who played at this would know this was a bad idea).

  • Running around in a (illegal, I suppose) World of Warcraft Friends & Family Alpha sandbox along long roads and seeing what I now know to be Stromgarde suddenly loom in the distance…

  • Surpricingly scary, GIGANTIC egyptic dogs and scarabs MASSED out from the gates. In a panic, I quickly turned around to seek refuge at the mass of the people around me.

  • Many years ago, I was near the Blackrock with my troll rogue and another rogue and a druid, and it was awesome that they joined in a prank I suggested. I really enjoyed the influx of creativity seen manifest thanks to people who cherish this.

  • Creating my first char, made an Orc warrior because Orcs seemd cool and had been playing a warrior in Baldurs Gate before. Little did I know about differences of the 2 games.

  • Leveling my first character; a Tauren Hunter named Bonswah. I still play this char now and then, and still have the same pet by my side which I tamed back in the days on the plains of Mulgore! (a Flatland Prowler named Tinus)

  • Firts time with a group in groupquest in Stromgarde Arathi Valleys. Some nice more experienced people told me about need/greed and the basics of tanking and being in a group.

  • Actually meeting some people you could call FRIENDS in a game. Never happened before.

  • Going to Karazhan. We had prepeared it for long. Everyone had done attunemetns etc. My job was to bring flasks and I farmed for mats. When we killed Attumen The Horseman we felt like really achieving something.

  • completing rhok’delar questline and getting my rhok’delar longbow of epic bragging rights in vanilla which still lies in my bank,shame i couldnt find a good transmog set to use it.

  • A battle between horde and alliance(players arranged it) at Ashenvale-Barrens ramparts…15 allies against same number of hordies….died a lot but I”ll never forget the feeling

  • Needing on a blue staff in my first instance at level 20ish(2005)-making mage and priest rage badly…lol. I won and in vanilla trading BOP wasn’t allowed.

  • Levelling my first character, an Undead Rogue, with my mentor. Running around near Crossroads in complete awe over the size of the map. Little did I know there was so much more to explore.

  • Just the pure awesomness of walking around in Mulgore, getting up to the city of Thunder Bluff and walking the whole end to Orgrimmar via the Crossroads….. did i know the world was even much bigger than that!!

  • I was so excited to see any new mob we encountered. Constantly saying �look at this, look at this� over every new sight I�d seen. My mentor must have gotten tired of my constant excitement.

  • Some people wonder if they would remember WoW when they are at the age of 70 or so; I know for sure I will! Too much experiences, friendships, long nights of guild chat to forget 🙂

  • These days, I am a mentor to a new player. Although I do occasionally bring in a max level character to help him out, I have been levelling a Hunter with him. It�s good when he points something out, and I get to view it through his eyes.

  • being the main kitter in the guild and kiting the dragons in UBRS and scaring people to death by kiting next to the afkers to wake them up 😛

  • In Vanilla it’s AQ20 (dunno why, but i liked it very much) and farming twillight dudes in Silithus for quest epic weapon (i still have it on my priest and use for transmogrification).

  • Back when both me and many of my friends were just beginners and had loads of fun, this screenshot is from our first run through Shattered Halls, where our tank was convinced to take off his gear because it would create more aggro cause he was so ugly…

  • During MoP Throne of Thunder we were on Lei Shen and I was tank. My guildie was a priest, I went to pull Lei and my guildie runs to the edge of the platform, and leap of faith’s me right as he jumps off, right as I taunt. Pulled Lei and wiped raid.

  • Skipping school to attend the opening event for the Gates of AQ in Vanilla. I had just joined a new guild and had tons of fun running around silithus.

  • My most joyous memory has to be my first Lich King kill shortly before the shattering, it was such an exciting moment for me, especially since the dagger dropped and i won it ^_^ I’d only been playing 6 months or so then, and ICC was my first raid. The LK is still my favourite fight.

  • Rolling a nelf and befriending 2 other players. We decided that we wanted to see Stormwind/the Eastern Kingdoms rather than staying in Kalimdor. This was in BC, I think.

  • I also loved downing Deathwing pre-nerf (the day before the first nerf but still :P), was way easier than the LK but still felt really good.

  • Unofficial class quests. Rogue soloing plugger for the shanker, my druid soloing mother smolderweb for the druid boots? or was it shoulders I forgot. But it was dam fun.

  • When i first time entereted Outland in TBC – graphics really shocked me i was lvl 53 not even lvl 58 i died in Hellfire and corpse runned to Shattrath city. I almost didnt played WOW during TBC because of real life problems. Too bad that TBC is gone

  • That was nothing compared to sitting around with a group of friends getting drunk smashing though Kara. Times have changed, the game has changed immensely (some good a lot bad), they have all gone on to play other games and im sat here twiddling my thumbs thinking why do I still play as they lol at me on TS.

  • Stepping from Elywnn to Westfall for the first time, changing zones and colour palette and… not having a loading screen. Coming from the likes of Star Wars Galaxies and City of Heroes, this was breathtaking.

  • miss the community back from banilla when we had the LFG channel and could talk to everyone on the server i remmeber my first treck to SM as alliance being more dangerous than the actual dungeon haha

  • The Scourge Invasion was superb and I still keep the Blessed plate outfit I won then to this day, which combines with later Argent Tournament stuff for much preening, polishing and showing off.

  • After 5 years of saving gold I bought a spectral tiger I’ll never forget that day and raiding karazhan I dunno why I just loved that raid

  • When you druid heal and take 4 friend druid heal, go to the arena in 5v5 for to have fun, and meet the same team mad opponents as you from 5 Druid heals! This unbridled joy!

  • Any time when you’re in a guild or a group of great people Raiding, RPing, Questing, or Achievement hunting. It’s the people you play with that really make this game what it is.

  • Mid to end of Vanilla. I was in a solid raiding guild (tho not top notch) and had a blast doing PvP which was a lot more fast paced than today and at a certain point, where raid gear was about equally good as PvP gear, even pretty balanced. I still did tons of 5man dungeons just for fun (didn’t need anything from them but even in MC/BWL gear they weren’t a total faceroll and could easily occupy you for an hour or two.

  • I remember back when I started in vanilla, EVERYTHING was awesome. Though, one of the most memorable memories has to be the great battles at Hillsbrad, between Southshore and Tarren Mill.

  • I’d say my favorite moment, in such a short time was definitely stepping through the Dark Portal. It took us quite a while to get to level 58 and to me, it felt like a real achievement. Outland felt very monumental, a real moment. I’ll always remember that. We even RP walked our way through #swagoverload.

  • When you could be at it for hours and hours, having this great pushwar, battling back and forth. The first time I ever saw it, was on a lvl 44 hunter. It was way out of my league, but anyways everyone else made it a great experience, helping and guiding me.

  • n the EU open beta I started a Shaman and got hooked, started one at release and been playing it ever since (this very character). The fondest memories to me will still be the smaller things from back then, like raiding Astranaar, Southshore vs Tarren Mill, the first Ragnaros kill, the AQ40 opening event and our first C’thun kill (world 11th!),

  • the feeling of seeing the first epic item. Wasn’t even me that got it, a friend of mine did, but it was awestriking. And the amount of players that roamed the lands back in vanilla/BC. Good times, good times.

  • The fondest memories are hard to explain, they happened 8+ years ago and just appear from time to time. I get glimpses of the most mundane moments that really wasn’t anything special, yet still warms me and will stay with me for the rest of my life.

  • One would have to be entering Dead mines for the first time on my mage (my first character) back when i first started playing at the beginning of TBC.

  • Seeing the first flying mount, a guildie came to help me with a group Q in hell fire and they flew towards me on a flying mount and I couldn’t believe it, I didn’t even know they existed at that point!!

  • For me it was back in vanilla, I was playing my first warlock. I was undead, at level twenty something and I was killing murlocs in hillsbrad foothills. A gnomish mage ambushed me in the middle of battle and I didn’t manage to do much more than cast my dots on him before I died. The gnome proceeded to dance mockingly upon my corpse after my death, my dots slowly eating at his life while I waited for the perfect time to use my soulstone resurrection.

  • Entering, and then after much hard work with my guild, clearing Karazhan for the first time! It was an amazing experience.

  • Back then everyone was a noob, and I don’t think he really expected me to suddenly pop up again. Not that there was much he could do since my first immolate was enough to kill him. That was my first pvp experience in wow, and the adrenaline rush felt quite like something.

  • My story is very simple, but for me it was the most vivid moment in my entire WoW-life. It was usual day, until i realize, that it is my character’s 2-year “birthday”, so me and my guildies went to tavern in Dalaran and got drunk until our chars start vomiting, talking to each other in a process. Atmosphere was very warm and cozy. Also, in a week there was my own birthday, and in that day we got our first kill on Lich King, and my warrior got as a B-day present Warmace of Menethil. So i remember this days for my entire life, this moments make WoW my favorite game.

  • The last run to hand in the (old) Winterspring Frostsaber RRQ. I have always been fairly casual so having something reasonably rare (About 4 active people on my realm had it) and that I liked the look of made me feel quite good.

  • Also when i played trial and everything was new and shiney a Troll came to gank lowbies. Don’t know what level he was but i remember seeing him as a TOTAL badass even though he got obliterated by the guards…. I tried to kill him along with every other lowbie and we ALMOST got him but then he AoEd and a massacre took place.

  • First time entering Azeroth with my friends back in 2005. Making a NE hunter and starting to explore the huuuuuge world. Back then it was immersive experience.

  • Have to say mimron fire fighter, first kill, the joy of it all actually coming together on 25 man was just insane. Could not fall asleep after that for a good 4 hours. Would call that my first hard core raider kill. 4 weeks just going at the same boss was mind blowing.

  • Molten Core….We had that 1 stoner Hunter who was such a great guy that everyone would let it slide when he would say those infamous words “Hey has anyone seen my pet” moments before the boss train would wipe us 😀

  • Vanilla. Raid passing above Golemagg when someone ninjapulls. Entire raid starts running around like headless chikens. Then someone played the Benny Hill tune on Ventrilo. Priceless

  • For me it was my first days in game. My first chacter was human lock, traveling around Elwynn forest was so exciting. Was dreaming about possibility to get to that world when i was playing Warcraft 2. For me it is not some accomplishements, it was just being in that world.

  • My funniest memory was when people kept asking me for a teleport to dalaran. I got so tired of it that I just send them to the old Dalaran crater. When I went to it, I laughed really hard at all the bodies there 🙂

  • Also when I first started playing with 3-4 school friends about midway/towards the end of vanilla. We had never played an MMO before and we were essentially the worlds biggest noobs. We never even reached level cap. We were all nelfs and travelling to do Dead Mines was some serious [email protected]#$. There was no harbour in SW so the journey was truly epic from the other side of the world.

  • I don’t think wow was a better game back then. It was far more basic, tedious and a grind – and pretty much everyone was a complete noob by todays standards. Raid bosses had mechanics that wouldn’t look out of place in a 5 man today.

  • Making fake portals in Wrath front of orgrimmar portal and people were like whatt the fuck its broken ;)))

  • First I rolled an Orc Shaman, played a bit around the starting area and then rolled this Paladin (used to be Human). I stayed with him and when I reached Redridge Mountains because of the red soil I thought I was close to the Horde area, so I was like “Dude such a small world, the Horde starting area is so close to the Alliance”

  • Swimming across the river between Elwynn Forest and Duskwood, bam! contested territory, I HAD to get back to Elwynn 🙂

  • Entering Duskwood, entering Westfall, both truly epic feelings. Getting my first mount (lvl 40) and riding through the world, I even reached Plaguelands were I just rode as fast as I could

  • The night I fell in love with raiding and my guild. Paragons of Klaxxi. Been wiping all night. Now all dead but two. 1% wipe incoming. Last man standing resses hunter. He kites like Mary Poppins and somehow boss gets it done. Crowd goes wild.

  • In vanilla wow I made a night elf hunter but I wanted to level in elwynn forest so I took a long journey on the boat to wetlands and walked all the way to elwynn dying many time only to get there and find no hunter trainer. But it was still worth the adventure.

  • i was in Goldshire and dueled a pally on my rogue. Drank a noggenfogger and shrunk then proceded to fight him. he was kicking my ass so i vanish and hide behind the mailbox by the inn and wait there for 30 minutes watching him run around like an idiot trying to find me. so he gets on top of the forge and whispered me that i cant get to him. i shadowstep up and and suprised him but by then all his CDs were up again and he just wacked me. while i was hididng we had a decent conversation too. really goood times

  • Getting lvl capped 60, I remember getting on Andorhal alone, with my 2h as a Retribution Paladin, surrounded by undeads to reach lvl 60, and then dungeons, dungeons dungeons for the Lightforge set!

  • The epic mount quest in Scholomance, the Pristine Black Diamond. The first time I saw the Charger was in Loch Modan. I saw a Paladin on it and I was like O.O shiny! I MUST have it!

  • this happened to me some months ago… i was browsing the alliance AH for upgrades and herbs for inscription and suddenly i noticed the AH guy was dead… i looked up to see a lvl 75 troll rogue standing next to the npc and i proceeded to torture him (i was a lvl 71mage) he was dead in less than 5 seconds haha

  • I loved the Draeneis when TBC launched. I wanted to have a Draenei Paladin but I just couldn’t leave my Ranked 13 Human. I lvled to 70 and then started a belf Paladin which I changed to Tauren on Cataclysm. The Human changed to Draenei when it got available.

  • My most memorable moment in world of Warcraft was when my guild and I downed 25 man 3 drake OS server first . At this time my 2 Rl friends were doing it with our guild Wrecked. Me tanking as unholy on the dragon. Friend healing as a resto shaman and topped meters 🙂 and a Mage that also topped meters. The Mage friend would complain the whole fight and Everytime something went wrong he called random people out even though his fault. He ended up dying 15 sec till ending too fire on the ground from adds. Everyone was laughing at him and when he rolled highest roll for the twilight drake no one wanted to give to him, until the gm said “well he did top meters by 5% and was dead 15 sec” the silence and the laugh of the Mage in ventrilo, lmao, I still remember it like yesterday.

  • Running with full Judgement set and Herald of Woe or Epic pvp Golden set with the 2h Mace. There is a lion carved on the side of the mace and I was like “It leaves a mark, an Alliance lion mark”

  • I loved learning about the lore, I’m 10000% happy cause questing is getting better and better with each expansion

  • Achieving twilight vanquisher with my Rl friend Mage in raid , won the roll on twilight drake, no one wanted to give to him cause all he did was complain whole fight and only one died. gm said ” well he did top meters and died 15 sec prior.” Silence in ventrilo, and the Mage was dieing of laughter.

  • I loved just doing stupid things around, like jumping of cliffs with Divine Shield. Exploring before Flying Mounts were available (Old Ironforge/Hyjal…etc)

  • Probably the most funniest memory I could think of was when i was playing Eye Of The Storm. I was playing a shaman and everyone was going mid so I thought to myself why not go mid for once So I reach there. I end up using Thunderstorm and everyone falls into the pit xD

  • Probably my first ever raid, being asigned a mark to sheep and the tension of the first trash pull as all the marks are Cc’d then the tanks run in to get aggro and the wait till the all clear to begin dps.

  • Back when we were progressing on Brutalis, our only rogue with an OH Warglaive had to go out of town for a weekend. We ended up clearing BT -> Illidan and the MH dropped. We had someone play his toon so he would be able to complete his set. We enchanted it and hid it in his bank. When he returned the following week to play with us no one said anything until we had raided for about an hour. When we asked him where his main hand was he was genuinely confused. After being informed he probably left it in his bank he was able to finally complete his set. Had a few giggles at his expense, but he got a legendary set for his trouble.

  • Posting this on my first char ever just because it’s the one with the most memories. Well, I started in March 2004 and I turned 20 a bit more than 2 march this year so yeah I was a kid, it was all so epic.

  • I have a great moment that I can’t ever forget… This was during Vanilla on my Hunter. I was kiting Teremus from Blasted Lands to SW keep for Bolvar to kill. However, as I reached Goldshire I did another jump-shot/Distracting shot at Teremus to make sure the guards couldn’t pull aggro off me, I saw him use his frontal cone flame breath ability, and killed everything. All of the Goldshire NPCs? Gone. All of the lowbies and new players picking up quests or selling random items… dead. General chat blew up with confusion and rage. I was laughing so hard that I almost failed to continue bringing Teremus to the keep!

  • My funniest memory would have to have been tricking my real life friend into jumping into the whirlpool in Darkshore. I did not know that it teleported you to some hidden cave before, so I thought he’d die. Jokes on me, he survived and laughed at me for failing to kill him after letting him know what my original intention was.

  • Probably when I first started playing. The music and ambience of Teldrassil when I started my newbie hunter. The excitement of doing the pet quests so I could finally tame that grey leopard I wanted.

  • I was so excited every day, couldn’t wait for school to end so I got the two hours my parents allowed me to play. Oh well, to the moments.

  • My most vivid and earliest memory of WoW was when I still had free to play status. I was learning the game and I had reached level 20 and had just finished the forsaken quest line in Gilneas and stood outside Shadow fang keep wondering how the hell I was gonna do the dungeon. Luckily a group of 20s came at that time and we all did the dungeon together, afterwards we went to the dark moon fair to celebrate! (Conveniently, we are all friends to this very day lol)

  • Finding Time-lost back in WOTLK. it was one of the awesome thinks that ever happened to me in wow. There i was, minding my own business, mining some nods and picking up some plants, when, all of the sudden, that big yellow-like dragon just spawned right in front of me… Scared the crap out of me, but i give him a beating he never forget! We have been best friends since then =P

  • My surprise when I visited TK for the first time, and ashes of al�ar dropping while I only wanted to get the sword from kael.

  • The night Mists came out – staying up late to get an hour or so into it then missing school to play even more! 😀

  • One day i logged in with my Druid and I had a mail. A player I didn’t know send me thousands of gold, because i told him where a npc is. Best moment so far 🙂 GL to everyone!

  • My friend logged on my account in order to tank for a raid, we didnt tell our guild. During a fight I was getting yelled at for not taunting the boss. Out of nowhere my friend just shouts “I DONT KNOW HOW TO TAUNT” really loud, it was hilarious

  • My funniest moment was accidentally use shadow step on Ultraxion. I tought it wasn’t possible, but it is. It was a large fall and death, and lots of laughts on raid chat.

  • Picked the game up when it first came out. Really had no idea about game mechanics, levelling builds for your class , skill rotations etc. There were no guides or even YouTube!!!
    My first class I rolled was a warrior, I picked arms as my skill tree, not knowing what a skill tree really was.
    I vividly recall using rend and pretty much only rend on every enemy till I FINALLY got to level 60!!!!
    Do you know how long that took me?!
    REND
    REND
    REND
    REND x 100000000000000000
    Needless to say I’ve played every expansion and still love the game!!

  • Completing my legendary cloak in Mists of Pandaria was an incredibly rewarding experience – the storyline was involved and epic, and the culmination of our efforts to create the cloak made me feel like my character was a true influence on the ever-changing world.

  • My most vivid memory was back when I was selected as a raid leader for an Naxxramas raid back in Vanilla. I was quite young, about 10, and had no clue how to play WoW. I didn’t even know how I got to be selected into the raid. It was all just so majestic at that time.

    Thank you, and good luck all!

  • One time me and my friend were rping and we got bored. My friend was in the king role and decided to go full Palpatine and execute order 66. For some reason the rp host accepted it and put out the warning that all worgen are to be killed.

  • For initiate guild members, they’d do a normal trial run, but we’d start cursing like they did in the Sailor Mouth episode of Spongebob (sounds and all). Each had one of the thirteen bad words and we’d be spewing them out left and right till someone got the reference.

  • The most fun I had in the game was when the patch was released at the end of the Burning Crusade and my insanely geared Ret pally gained Divine Storm. AOE’n packs of miffed hordes on the Isle of Quel’Danas was awesome, that is until we got NERFED TO THE GROUND BABY.

  • Oh man that Lich King raid.
    Because the Lich King didn’t aggro normally we’d all sit in his lap and decorate him with our cosmetic items. Then when the fight started half of us were punted clear over the throne and the rest of us broke down laughing.

  • Most vivid memory of playing a paladin in vanilla and mashing the decursive hotkey in Molten Core till the damn button came off the keyboard! And falling asleep and hitting my head on my keyboard and accidentally casting divine intervention on the main tank causing a raid wipe.

  • When I got hacked by a gold farmer then I got to keep the gold he farmed.. it was one way to get a sky golem I can say that!

  • Downing Karazhan for the first time with my guild many years ago. It was truly like having a second family, made me realize the key to a great mmo is the community.

  • My friend had trouble with Frogger, he couldn’t get past it. I always ressed him on the Patchwerk side so he had to run through it again. He had to strip his character and just spam run at it, often taking 10+ minutes to get to the right side. With a death count in the dozens.

  • The most vivid memory I had is of leveling up in the orginal world of Warcraft as a night elf hunter called “haviinfun”, which I still play, and being super excited about finally getting to use “volley”. Also, using the 100% mount when reaching max level and playing Alterac Valley, summoning the beasts from both sides! Those battles lasted dayssss!!!!

  • One of our off-off-off-off tanks in vanilla used his keyboard to turn and clicked on his buttons.
    During our first attempts on Vaelastrasz. He was basically the last person who would tank should all the others died. We all hoped it would never come to that. But it did. On a very close downing. Our raid watched as Vaelastrasz quickly turned to face him from taunt, putting everyone in the tail swipe range. The group holding their breath hoping he could turn him fast enough. I being another one of the tanks laying dead in front the throne, watched in what seemed like an eternity in time of him slowly turning left in place before then moving in a straight line towards the corpse pile. He couldn’t make it tho. The remaining raid got swiped.

  • I remember farming Cursed Vision of Sargeras for like 2 or 3 months and after all those Illidan kills I’ve got both Warglaves ON MY DRUID. Never got the head btw….

  • Back in WotLK when i started playing WoW, I wanted so bad to get to Northrend that I tried to swim from Tirisfal Glades to Howling Fjord and after dying going back to my corpse and continue swiming. I did this until a guild member told me that I had to level up to get to that zone.

  • My funniest and most vivid world of warcraft memory was when I was new to the game and was for the first time, going to use the dungeon finder to go into my first dungeon. I was a warlock and did not know how dungeons worked at all. Luckily I was playing with some of my friends when I went into it. Lets say it did not go so well. As I did not know how dungeons worked I was pulling mobs left and right! Little to say we wiped many, many times.

  • This was 2005. Most vivid memory of playing the first characters created with surprise from the graphics . At that time, the maximum level was 60. A year later came the update Burning Crusade. New , weapons , new things. So what is next update Lich King. This was VEEEEEEERY COOL update. Raids, again things, weapons and other. But then update was cataclysm. Deathwing was first boss who’s I liked. And summing up about the first character , I have a lot of 100 levels and a ton of wasted time.

    Thank you, and good luck all 😉

  • Walking into Goldshire for the first time and seeing all those naked toons and going what did I just get myself into..

  • My most vivid memory of wow is doing 100+ vs 100+ open world pvp in tauren mill and hillsbrad foothills during vanilla. Just a giant mob of players and huge spell effects everywhere. It was a magical time 😀

  • I remember when my vanilla WoW Horde guild on Barthilas dressed up as pirates and camped the boat between Wetlands and Dustwallow Marsh. Just after the loading screen we would jump on deck and use mind-control to make the Alliance walk the plank. Was so much fun. YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OL8IIMo3hs

  • the most halarious moment in wow for me was that i was leveling a rogue decided it would be funny if he would gank me over and over. I told my guild to come help me and over 20 guild members came to help me kill the rogue non stop

  • My favorite moment in wow was when i was on my level 100 alliance rogue running through frostfire ridge for draenor pathfinder. I ended up in the middle of 6 level 90 horde horde players and destroyed them all.

  • I found a mispriced Magic rooster egg @ Horde AH , listed up for 100g. I bought it asap. I decided to transfer from horde to Alliance using neutral Gadgetzan AH, I listed it for 1g thinking what could go wrong. I switched to the 2nd game window it was gone.

  • Back in Vanilla I had a hunter and a warrior, both lvl 60. I was farming for Ashkandi Greatsword of the Brotherhood on my warrior in Blackwing Lair. I was in a whole raid. The sword sadly didn’t drop when I was doing the raid on my warrior. The next day I decided to do the raid on my hunter with my guild. The sword ended up dropping, and I won the role. I was pissed, I wanted the sword on my warrior. I had to wait until I was able to solo that dungeon which was about 4-5 years later. I then finally got the sword on my warrior in about 30 attempts of soloing. Worst experience ever in WoW.

  • My best memory wasn’t in game. Our small guild had members in the US, Canada, and Sweden and on my friends 40th (yes old) they all sent us video messages. It was amazing to see them all and bought a tear to the eye of my friend.

  • My funniest momemnt was when i just started playing the game, 2 weeks of playing or so, and i started looking for transmog gear for my hunter so i went to the tempest keep raid looking for some awesome shoulders i’d seen some other hunter wearing, and when i killed the last boss for the first time i got several achievements. I didn’t think much of it until the guild member that got me into WoW in the first place went apeshit in the guild chat. He was so mad cause i’d just gotten Ashes of Al’ar on my first visit to temepest keep and i had no idea i’d even gotten the mount or that it dropped there. I found that really funny because he always complains that i’m so lucky, and he was grumpy for days 🙂

  • Looong ago in the before time (vanilla), right after release in fact, my pal Ehrich and I found our dwarves wandering around in Goldshire. Even then there was something funky about that small town. I’m not sure if it’s some Fel energy surrounding that place or what, but we decided to duel each other… with fishing poles… in the nude. I think I won. I’m not saying we were the first people to get naked in Goldshire, but… I’m saying it’s possible.

  • My favourite and best memory of WoW was back in Burning Crusade with my guild Nameless on Dreadmaul. We were doing progression on Illidan and I was playing my Holy paladin. Our Main Tank Maimaimoo would always scream out *HEALS ON MAIMAI* and in a moment of desperation just before the final phase I Divine Interventioned him killing my pally in the process made him lose aggro and have Illidan lay into all our DPS wiping our raid. The laughs and anger that ensued afterwards: priceless

  • I remember I asked my twin brother and best friend to help me farm in BWL for the Ashkandi. I was the one who wanted it, but my twin bro got it haha!

  • One time me and all my friends were doing dragon soul and doing the zonozz fight. We had messed up and we’re all in skype but I was right beside the ball and needed it to go back into the group. So I said screw it and sacrificed myself.

  • Back in the beginning of Mist I created a ticket concerning my character being bugged. At the end of Mist and beginning of WOD a cs contacted me in game about the ticket. I reported the cs and ignored them. It took quite some time to recover my account after.

  • Well I have to say the funniest moment in World of Warcraft was just recent, me and some of my guild mates decided to watch the fireworks in booty bay and well let’s just say we had a Toy battle XD squirrels, gamon, millhouse manastorm and a lot more lol was great. [email protected]

  • The first time I stepped into the Frozen Throne and stood before Arthas. Just the anticipation of the fight was amazing! Then came the wipes. Loved that final boss encounter!

    That, or once when I won Alteric Valley as horde. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • Nothing is more vivid and notable than the legendary Westfall raids. Leveling was the truest bitch in that epic battlezone of 20-50 alliance vs horde when youre the lone lvl 10 just trying to turn in a damn quest but they keep annihilating the npc!

  • Was doing a transmog run the other day in sunwell plateau. Half way through the run one of the bosses weren’t spawning so I watched a video which talked about the legendary bow that drops off the last boss. Here I was thinking that would be nice to get the bow on my first run… I GOT IT! just my luck.. maybe I’ll get lucky again 😉

  • The day before the Black Portal opened for BC and my PC running 2 fps along with all the disconnects and not even getting through for awhile, man I miss those days!! Let’s bring the fight back to the LEGION!

  • A couple years ago I recently found out about this mount called the Onyxian drake it had about a .1% drop rate at the time. On my first run with 3 other people it had dropped and I lost it because i tied a 45 with some Undead priest.

  • Having my raid leader break down and cry after raid wiping on Chess event in Kharazan, those were the days, all whilst recording the whole ordeal on Teamspeak.

  • I was in ZG when the Zulian Stone Axe dropped and my troll shaman won it. I was getting congratulations from the other raiders before I realised what happened. I ended up screaming with delight (forgetting my voice chat was voice activated) and got teased about that for years afterwards.

  • Around cata, I had learned about a lenendary called thunderfury, desperate to get this Item I had spent countless hours soloing molten core for the bindings of the windseeker and blew through 10,000 gold for Enchanted Elementium Bars… So worth it…

  • I also loved the feeling of Wintergrasp and Tol Barad – staying online for just “2 more hours” to get into the next battle, which led to me staying online all day to get honor! The early Cataclysm days were the best imo. I hope there’s a Warlord’s version of Tol Barad and Winterspring, which MoP failed to deliver.

  • But In all honesty, some of my best memories are of Raiding Naxx in WotLK. Our guild was very casual, we didnt have a “Raid Team” we just cobbled together what we could from whoever was online. We wiped soooooo many times of Grobbulous, but when we got him down for the first time ……. Fantastic !

  • When i start play in WOW, it was Lich King and we had other system of tallants. In this talants I did not notice the arrow that drops down and i start put all point in all skills what i have in screen
    and does not scroll wheel down, in lvl 65 i have full tallants and i think I’m cool because I have at 65 level was bled whole system tallant, while other players when I pressed the view theirs character not all tallant have been studied. 2 months later I saw the game that you can scroll through the lower and there other Tallant that can be pumped, it was so funny, all the friends and acquaintances who have played in WOW with me a long time to laugh)))

  • Then Heigan, failing on the dance for weeks, watching everyone else get it right, then suddenly “click!” I saw the pattern on the floor that I could use to mark where to move to, never failed on the tat dance since.

  • Raiding MC Vanilla one night. 40 of us No Vent… Raid Leader would Macrosplain the fights. We DCd at first boss came back in and for what felt like 30 minutes one of his macros kept spamming us and dcing us… We had a good lol.

  • The Foursmen ! We wiped there for an hour or so, shuffled our group around 3-4 times, then, we got one rider down but half of the Raid was dead. Two of us managed to finish off another rider, but one of us died, so by now there are only 3 of us left, a Pally healer, a DK and me. We managed to 3man the last two riders of the Foursmen in 10 man Naxx. The relief, the joy, the cheering ! Good Times.

  • Have to say I’m a bit surprised I hadn’t already posted in this thread given that it was started a couple of years ago. Bit of a trip down memory lane though – before Eolien got made MVP, b some of my fondest memories are probably from cata raiding with my former guild. I was enormously proud of my guild. We were only social raiders, but we managed to clear normal content whilst it was still current. LFR kind of killed our cause though.efore Doomsinger stopped being MVP, lots of old faces that stopped posting…

  • some of my fondest memories are probably from cata raiding with my former guild. I was enormously proud of my guild. We were only social raiders, but we managed to clear normal content whilst it was still current. LFR kind of killed our cause though.

  • I’m equally fond of my first ever levelling experience through the game. I came via recruit a friend, so I was always with my partner. I had rolled a belf warlock and was questing through the tauren levelling zones. The first time I saw the great lift on my way to thousand needles was pretty memorable. Also, as I started playing during midsummer, the midsummer event always brings back a pleasant wave of nostalgia. 🙂

  • Remember those “it’s not a game it’s a world” ads that Blizzard used to run? My fondest memories are when that was true for me. When I was levelling my first ever character, seeing huge cities for the first time, learning spells which were new and exciting..

  • Trisfall glades mainly because that was the zone I started to play for the first time. Loved the darkness, the music and atmosphere. Also the first walk to Brill and reaching that little town was so awesome.

  • I think MMORPGs are at their best when you’re new to them and they feel mysterious in a way which is never possible when you’ve been playing for years and have seen it all before. Also a lot of RL friends have stopped playing – it was definitely nice to have them around. Though I’ve made friends through the game (and forum!) which is cool.

  • Undercity was and still is one of my favorite places. First time i got there it was a real puzzle how to enter the city. I remember walking up to closed elevator doors.

  • heading out the black port the 1 time and own by the fel rever is hight up there but my best time ever was when i got my 1 epic shield the the for zg somethings of the blood god fely like a real raider and was happyle siting in if with it like a god 🙂

  • Didn’t have a clue they would open when the lift came so just kept walking around ot the next closed door.

  • Way back when I made my first ever character which was an Undead Warlock called Immazombie, doing the quests for summoning the demons was, I thought, epic.

  • Killing a random dragon with a friend out in the world, we had died to it twice, both being warlocks we used the Voidwalker in the end to finally bring it down, nothing before or since filled me with a greater sense of achievement!

  • Barrens was also one of my favorite places during vanilla. Not only because I spend a long time levelling there but nothing beat the barrens chat during vanilla.

  • Just exploring, I remember going around the old Eastern Kingdoms it was blowing my mind how big the place was, not realising there was two more continents and another world to see.

  • I wish I still used that account, but I never really played much then it was more checking WoW out than really giving it a proper good go.

  • I was levelling my main character in vanilla WoW. I levelled as a Tauren Druid and I remember having reached only red level quests back in Un’Goro Crater. So I decided to go explore Silithus. Only strange obelisks were marking this area and I remember stepping into the Silithus desert. It was so alien and unlike anything I had seen in the Warcraft universe. The desert felt vast and dangerous since even the basic scorpions were higher levels than me.

  • When I started playing and discovering all the new zones, it made the game feel big and mysterious, but now after playing for so long there isn’t really much more to discover.

  • There was only a small camp with a few Tauren and Night Elf NPC’s. I managed to finish one quest that sent me to the ruins of Southwind Village. Until now Night Elven settlements had be predominant in Kalimdor and for the first time I saw a Night Elf Village in ruins and a victim to an insect plague. I thought that Silithus was home to something alien and sinister and left the are before I got killed. And truly enough – Silithus was the home of an old god.

  • When there was still a night and I could travel by ground mount getting scared of things jutting at me from the night.

  • This particular moment stuck with me. I realized that MMO’s and WoW had the potential for discovery and exploration – and that there was a world out there for you to explore.

  • Mostly just when I played the game during Vanilla. I was incredibly young at the time, and didn’t really have any idea what I was doing. As a result, I spent hours and hours in Elwynn Forest, Westfall, Redridge and Duskwood, not really doing anything.

  • A lot of the newer zones are very pretty and looks nice – but the questing system in todays WoW feels more like you are being taken on streamlined tour in a zone rather than exploring it. Not to mention flying mounts and flights paths being literally everywhere in the game now. I am not saying you have to have draconic delivery quests that takes you across each contintent everytime – but questing seems more like a thing that needs to “be done” rather than a explorative journey.

  • Back in the day when there was just a graveyard at the crossroads for the barrens, dying from the razormane near RFD/RFK because I wanted to explore at super low level. I auto-ran and went to get a drink and go to the toilet because it was so long, thinking a tree would catch me or something, or maybe I’d die from mobs closer and have a short run. Someone came to the door, and I was gone so long that when I got back I had run off the cliff and was in thousand needles, and being a super noob I had no idea how to get back, so I made a new character and never played that one again.

  • I think before Cataclysm most players didn’t care about the old zones, they were just places we were before, places we were done with. However, after the remodeling of the world in Cataclysm when those places were reshaped and basically disappeared players miss them because they are gone. My reaction to the Cataclysm trailer when Deathwing ravaged Loch Modan and destroyed the dam was just – NOOOOO! Don’t destroy my favorite zone!

  • I remember when I was a low level newbie hunter in TBC and I met up with another random hunter in Auberdine. We got chatting and started questing together, but then we decided to go exploring along the coast. When we found the entrance to Blackfathom Deeps we were like, “Woah, what is this??” We went inside and somehow managed to fight our way to the first boss.

  • The first time entering the game on TBC launch, being hooked within a couple days and getting my mate into it and playing months just trying to level, but being distracted all the time by things we saw and things to figure out *our minds were blown*

  • Falling off the waterfall on teladrassil back in beta, dying and emoing out because I couldn’t ‘ress’ above the waterfall. I can’t remember whether there was spirit resses back then or whether I was a total noob, but it made me not touch the game again until release. It makes me laugh thinking back to it.

  • The old defias brotherhood quest chain (from lvl 1 all the way to 19/20). Yes I know it carried on further later in DWM, but the basic story from human starting zone through to DM & killing Van Cleef was epic

  • I remember walking into Ironforge for the first time and realising how big WoW really was. Some druid was spamming rejuvenation, and now every time I hear it it reminds me of that moment.

  • Hey Guys,

    Back in vanilla WoW when world bosses were a big deal, our guild spent over 13hours trying to secure the kill of Lord Kazzak. It was a crazy day, since it was so easy to stop opposing guilds (of either faction) from taking your kill. We won!!

  • Ah the good old days where we used to make threads about memories of Vanilla and TBC. Farming Stranglekelp off the coast of Wetlands for hours and hours in order to sell them on the AH and have enough money to buy first mount.

  • We used to have a ritual for new members when we ran MC. There was a little hole in the wall behind Golemagg, and after we killed him we would swear blind there was a secret chest full of epics in it that you can only get the first time you kill him, and that they had to go into the hole and loot it quick, that we’d bop them and hot them etc so they’d survive as it was a team effort to get them lewt.

  • Anyway, most people went in, died and realised that they were being trolled, all had a good laugh, but there was this one rogue who, I’ll give him credit, was very determined. He went in, asking for heals etc, died, screamed for a combat ress, got ressed, died etc, didn’t twig from our muffled laughter. When we were all too busy wetting ourselves to ress him, he actually ran back in, stood by the hole and demanded to be hotted/shielded up as he was ‘really going to get it this time.’ He tried a good 4-5 times before someone had the heart to tell him what we were doing. He was completely gutted that he wasn’t going to get his chest full of epics.

  • I started playing towards the end of TBC, having only played WC3 and WC3: TFT before (and trawling the wiki). So I knew a good deal about the background lore, and if it was one thing that always fascinated me it was the lore about the Titans. I LOVED the Titan lore. I was practically an honorary member of the Titan Appreciation Association (if such a thing existed).

  • I was really really young back then. Like really young. This was like 7 years ago, mind you. I used to level on roleplay servers. And then I managed to get to get a boyfriend on wow… And then I got another one. And they had no clue about eachother. And then I panicked and logged out when I saw that they met(Goldshire). And I logged back in on my alt and I heard one of them say:”So she cheated on both of us?”. Yeah, this wasn’t a roleplay relationship, it was a lame online one. Shortly after that, for some reason I had to change my name. It was against the name rules, but it happened exactly after that. And then, whenever I had some drama, I would have to change my name again for some reason. I guess people reported my name whenever they got upset with me.

  • Someone said they’ll report me for yelling ONE sentence from a MCR song. And no, it wasn’t obscene whatso ever. Using the mailbox and wall facade to wall jump ontop of the roof of Goldshire inn

  • Coming home from after school to play The Burning Crusade on launch day. Staying home from school to level my Death Knight on launch day.

  • Staying home from school to level my Worgen on launch day(I have a mom who supports my gaming and since I had nothing important going on on those two days, I got a free day.)

  • Then WotLK hit, and I was running around Sholazar Basin. It was full of Titan structures and lore and man, it was heaven. And then I got a little quest that took me through a portal…

  • Ending up in a hidden Titan structure in the Ungoro Crater just… blew my mind. It may sound silly now, but damn, I felt like a scientist or an explorer that had just found something that was going to change the way we see the world! I was so excited I could barely form sentences (no seriously, my thoughts went something like “wha… but… I’m in the old world… are you saying this… the old world has Titan structures… wha…?”) even though technically I did know that the Titans were the ones who created the world in the first place so it shouldn’t have been that surprising. But damn it blew my mind.

  • Speaking of lore, I was always SO curious to see what was behind the Gilnean wall. I’d travel down to Silverpine and stare at that door for hours, just trying to imagine what it could look like behind it.

  • When Cataclysm was first released (within the first two weeks or so, I think) there was a bug in Shadowfang Keep, in which the first boss killed you with his force grip if you were shape-shifted. We had three druids in our group, and we just kept wiping and couldn’t understand why. I had never been a raider, and had never really had to think about any sort of strategies before – figuring out how to avoid that bug, and telling the rest of the group (who gave me pMy first character was a Night Elf. One of my fondest memories was running into the spider cave and getting eaten by red mobs for the first time. I remember that I was so upset when they made those neutral in… was it in Cataclysm? I know they changed them back afterwards (I guess I wasn’t the only one), but I haven’t checked recently.

  • Also, the first time I saw a draenei was when I saw a player who had drowned in a river on Teldrassil. Me and my brother (who had introduced me to WC3, but who couldn’t afford WoW and thus had to watch me play) were so excited since we’d only heard about the new races, and we must have looked really silly trying to get a good look, since they were sort of floating face down.

  • Learning to dance as a newbie. Learning herbalism and fishing, without knowing what professions are and then catching fish in the Troll starting area.

  • i miss hauling my butt down to the meeting stone, and actually having to explore, this whole instant dungeons and flying mounts, have ruined most of my fun, and defo ruined wpvp for me, used to love killing questers now i only ever see lowbies, but i dont want to kill them if theres no fun involved 😀 yet i do it anyway… love being in a pvp server 😀 haha

  • I really enjoyed this, and I’ve also seen people from Blizzard talking about their favourite WoW memories (think it was during Blizzards 20th anniversary), so I decided that I’d post this quick thread, cause I enjoy reading other people’s great stories.

  • Hanging around dalaran with a friend. We had just started and were levelling through nordrend at the time. And boy did we have some craic in dalaran. Like sitting down in the sewers to fish or hitting up the local tavern to stock up on drinks then head to an alley to drink.

  • My fondest memory of WoW was back in Tbc. I was losing badly to some Ogres in Nagrand when a max level paladin swooped in on her white griffon and nailed them all. She invited me to the guild she was in.

  • After a long time I married that girl. In SW cathedral and most of our guild turned up for the RP event. Funny thing was is I got married to the real person 15/12/2012. We now have two children and still play WoW to this day. 🙂

  • This was on Nordrassil EU Alliance 2007. Hunter was called Cashis. The guild was called V For Vendetta, and the one I created after was called Annihilation.

  • When I tamed my beloved spirit beast “Skoll”, back in WotLK. It was such a great moment. I have the screen, for a bit nostalgia…Storm Peaks, mana on hunter…

  • It’s extremely hard to point at THE best memory, but it’d have to be my druid-only RP-guilds 1st anniversary.

  • Though there’s this one particular moment that keeps popping up in my head when someone asks me about this:

  • We had invited everyone from all over (including other realms), and we did a bear-march from Darnassus, boat to SW, up through trade district and onwards to the park… where we all stood on the edges of the moonwell and cast Teleport: Moonglade simultaneously. (Which also weeded out the non-druids and kids that were foillowing us in SW, ofc ;))

  • The best memory was playing together with all my friends during Vanilla Wow when everything was still new and fresh and everything was an adventure.

  • Arriving at Moonglade, we had a druid-only no-mounts race around the lake – and while most used travelform, some were smart and shifted to bear to charge at critters to gain an advantage.

  • Well… it all ended well, Little Red Riding Hood became a good druid in the end, and we had to do an encore in Teldrassil a while later, since non-druids were complaining that they hadn’t seen the play the first time.

  • Good times… back before Cataclysm, where guild levels tore apart both many small RP-guilds and the cross-guild raiding communities that made it possible to get both the small-guild-feel and the raiding-with-friends at the same time.

  • Our guild died too. Everyone wanted high level guilds, guild levels sure didn’t come easy, and the raiding communities became solo-guilds… for all the benefits it brought to only raid with guildies.

  • In vanilla WoW, me helping a lowbie Night Elf making her way from Darkshore to Ironforge. It was a young Dutch girl playing (or at least that’s what she told me, I know it’s still the internet). She couldn’t speak English very well so she was lucky to come across me, being a Dutch speaking Belgian. It was good fun just helping her across, even though all we really had was a fun chitchat while travelling through the Wetlands. Occasionally me slaying a croc she had aggro’ed.

  • We actually played that angle for a while with a few of our friends which led to some duels. Was some great fun but that’s all it was on the RP side of things. Oh yeah the Priest that married us in game was also a priest in RL so that was funny.

  • Best raid moment: I managed to tank and kill Anubarak in TotGC 10, for tribute to mad skill achieve. And everone cheered and I was the champion who saved the day… trully epic moment.

  • Too many, frankly. Oddly, most of these are actually things that just seem like tiny, minor moments. But these really stuck with me for some reason.

  • Best PvP moment: Was on my warrior in Arathi Basin LM, where a priest mc’ed me and made me jump. I hit the ground and had like 5% or so left and imidiately started patching. Two of them saw me survive the jump, and jumped down after me leaving them with little hp. Killed them both. That felt good.

  • PVE moment: A friend who use to play WoW boosted me from 2pm untill 4 am in the morning nonstop. I went to bed, woke up at 11 pm or so, logged and to my surprise he was still on. I asked him: dude, did u even sleep? He said: maybe? That guy was extreeme. He actually managed to lvl a hunter from scratch and raid SWP and got the legendary back in TBC in about 3 month.

  • We were having a guild officers’s meeting in Tanaris, down on the beach. Just as we were wrapping up the meeting, a guildy reports that Crossroads is under attack.

  • Most importantly: Exploring all the zones. Since leveling was slow, you spent a lot of time in each zone – meaning you’d learn a lot more about the environment & story. Plus, spending a lot of time there = I’ve made several amazing memories in each and every zone.

  • My most vivid memorie is being chased by the roaming t-rex in Ungoro Crater..oh, how that *censored* killed me so many times when I was just minding my own business XD

  • Elwynn with its insanely homely atmosphere, giving you a great introduction to the defias threat, which would continue in Westfall

  • I’d love to have seen the Alliance faces as 10 high level guildies flew into Crossroads within seconds of each other and wiped the place clean.

  • So, I was sitting here afk in main town eating a soup(IRL) and i had my bag up wich shows how much gold i have.

  • Redridge with its beautiful town by the lake. Dun Morogh, a place of beautiful nature and tranquility.

  • I remember going WOW everytime I saw an epic ground mount! This was back in the vanilla days of course, when pretty much everyone ran around on their 60% mounts. Nothing felt more epic than calling in ‘that guy’ from your guild who had the 100% mount to intimidate gankers in Stranglethorn Vale.

  • My best kept memorie of WoW must’ve been raiding ICC. It started with the patch cinematic showing Arthas coming outside to defend his fort. As Arthas is one of my fave hero’s I was so thrilled to face him! We whiped so many times the first weeks it was unreal. In the end we killed him and we celibrated in real life with a party at my house!

  • I remember running around Arathi Highlands and meeting tens of another players of same realm. Ah these golden days..

  • Going through Stranglethorn to Booty Bay as a lowbie – stunningly beautiful, yet it seemed like death was just lurking behind every bush.

  • And the moment my friend asked me if i want to do Scarlet monastery and was actually afraid about over agroing and dying there.

  • Best memorie? Gotta be facing Illidain during The Burning Crusade. After I think around 300+ runs I got both his Twin Blades of Azzinoth and I felt like a boss!

  • Mine was just the character customise screen, when I joined, the 8 races you get to choose from, yes 8 lol, I immedietely went with undead, I thought they looked so badass, so my first character was an undead warrior named Grizzy 🙂

  • like so many people this was my first real MMO, i came here from Neverwinter Nights which was amazing at the time but in hindsight pretty small, so i guess it will be some time before i feel very little in a very big place again, even the Horseman put the fear of god in you..:D

  • My most vivid memorie is falling in love with a guy during our daily play sessions and farming materials. We hit it off and I got the nerve to meet him. We both came to Melbourne and it was incredible. Now 4 years later we’re living together and I’m expecting a little Anduin 🙂

  • These days dungeons were epic adventures for casual player instead of loot festivals for leveling. I gathered up 5 level 8-12s to take on, wait for it……. THE BARRENS!

  • I had a accound in 2008 or 2009 but i only reached level 24 downloading the game took weeks when i was level 24 there was a patch that i cloud not download so i quit and after a few months i forgot my password.

  • I remember farming the spiders in Wetlands with my friend when we were level 20 because they dropped Spider Palp which sold for 3 silver, we used to jump with excitement when one dropped. Funny times.

  • I remember running everywhere with aspect of the cheetah on and have races with my mate, a mage, to see if blink or aoc was faster to travel. And being envious of his ‘minor speed increase’ boot enchants. That and many other things.

  • Discovering actually how big the game was when Level 25 female NE Hunter took me and another lvl 13 Druid from Darkshore to Ironforge on foot via the ferry through the Wetlands. Until that point I had only seen Darnasus and didn’t realise there was multiple low lvl starting zones. That was in Vanilla.

  • When Auberdine was large quest hub. Now my home village is in ruins and makes me sad everytime i visit there. I told my rank 10 mage friend that he’d get 50g if he could kill my felhunter 1v1. He lost. Every time.

  • Discarding blue items with + spell power in favour of green items with stamina and intellect on it because it meant I could cast more spells before going oom and had moar HP.

  • Probably the funniest memory I have was back in bc. I just got done leveling my mooning for my friends raiding guild cause they needed one for progression, anyways there was this warlock who hated moonkins who kept getting mad that all the gear I needed was dropping and even though he didn’t need it was upset that I was getting it. All of us were dying on vent cause he kept yelling “oh my god don’t give it to the moonkin!”

  • getting my pet out in the AH only to find it had the ZG virus on it which spread around ironforge killing people, i ran out of bandages that day 🙁

  • One of my fondest WoW moments came from a normal night of progression raiding with my guild, , on Burning Blade. Everyone has something to do to pass the time. Some guilds talk strats, others reminisce about their real life (sports and jobs mostly), but nope… we talked about poop. A wide…. variety… of poop (facts included).

    Oh boy was that an interesting conversation. We weren’t just talking about the duty (lol) that everyone in the world does, we were making a conversation I haven’t forgotten in more than two years (does help that I recorded it). We talked about astronaut poop (how much it would sell for), one’s curiosity of pooping into a vacuum and OF COURSE: TIL Poop Particles get on your toothbrush. Obviously some of the raiders had gone a little coo-coo from all the progression, but then again, don’t we all?

    It’s always been one of my fondest memories of the guild, because despite the fact that we were stuck on a boss for progression, some of us weren’t frustrated to make light of our situation and talk about poop. I’m not really sure what spurred that conversation, but once someone brought it up, people just couldn’t stop talking about it.

    Link to the audio from Mumble that night: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqou1OQYO50

  • During The Burning Crusade me and my buddy would quest around Hellfire Peninsula. Ofcourse there was a quest where you had to capture a few towers which belonged to the opposite faction. As lowbies we were ganked a couple of times. Sick and tired of the herassment we logged our main characters and got some good payback! haha

  • First time I discovered the hidden troll village in between Darkshore & Winterspring. There was one route you could take over the mountains and as Rogue at that time you had to have a parachute cloak and position & time your jump perfectly or you would get stuck on the way down.

  • I levelled from 40 to 41 almost all the way (on my first-to-be 60, a rogue) by killing turtles along the river of Hillsbrad Foothills (from Dalaran to near Tarren mill and back) to vendor some grey they dropped that seemed to have a high vendor price in order to buy a level 40 mount.

  • Game was still new to me so I was so immersed that it felt like I actually stepped into an alien world.

  • When a couple friends started playing in my server and we tried to do Deadmines (I had already been there, they hadn’t) we attempted to get a random PUG paladin to come with us, mainly because we wanted a resurrecting character just in case – he said no because we were “too low level”. We shrugged and went on to clear most of it with my druid and friend’s hunter alternating tanking between druid-bear and pet.

  • There was a very small troll village between Felwood and Winterholm. You fly over it when you take a Gryffon between the two places. I found a way to get between the rocks by precisely wallclimbing in a few places. There I was in the middle of this troll party island! It was great for farming back when ice mages were the bomb!

  • Also trying to do Scarlet Monastery – the armoury section, if I remember well – with two “DPS” paladins, my rogue, and two hunters. It was odd. We gave up at some point, it wasn’t going well with that setup, needless to say <.

  • One of his alts yes. Shoulders the mage was his main. He left to spend time with his family. ( newborn son ) I myself was GM for a time as was the wife 🙂 hehe fun times.

  • Leveling herbalism from 1 – 200 without knowing you could track herbs. Yes, that took a silly long amount of time I tell you. (Back in those days questitems etc. didn’t sparkle like they do now as well).

  • I think I have my best memories from The Barrens, while playing at night. At this one LAN party, we were 4-5 guys really into the game, and only one of us played the zone music. The nights in the game was really dark..

  • I remeber when i started on this accound in cata and we where in logmodan and i found out that the dam was broken and the lake was gone it was very sad and then we wanted to take a short cut to the wetlands so we jumped off the dam and we died and my frend blamed his little brother who was in the group with us it was funny as hell and im laughing now just thinking about it.

  • Westfall, that place still holds some of the old magic before revamp. The music there still brings memories.

  • Zul Farrak, the old questline where you had to go to Hinterlands for Mallet to summon the boss.

  • The funniest thing I can remember was my guildleader when he explained the patchwork encounter in naxxramas to us. While he was explaining the mechanics you could hear sound in the background every guy knows as soon as he turns 13 years old. He just asked in an angry way: ,,C’mon guys?! Whos fapping during the bossexplanation?”.

  • Old Azshara….it was wild, mysterious, one would roam there in search for hidden secrets.

  • Hot sunday summer afternoons begrudgingly starting MC, only to emerge 10 hours later; soooo roasted and toasted, that I’d go grind Winterspring Frostsaber Trainers rep just for a change of cooool scenery 😉 luv’d the muzak up there^^ I remember not being able to pick a class/race I wanted to play with because everything was awesome.

  • Why? Because a very, very simple reason. It is where it all started for me and my beloved Blood Elf Warlock.. Every killed mob, every 1 point of XP gained, every quest item collected, every time I died due to pulling 3 mobs, every long walk from quest giver to quest giver, the music, everything was making me so happy and immersed in the game.

  • I remember jumping of the eastern cliffs of Winterspring with the intention of using my parachute cloak. 2/3 the way down I hit a shelf before I could activate the cloak. Closest graveyard was in Azshara. The run from there wasn’t too bad except that my body lay to high to reach.

  • Being there I got to see a lot of people passing through, both alliance and horde and for some reason I usually managed to avoid the PVP fights that often started, heck, I even stopped one and made the mage polymorph that poor orc warrior back to full hp!

  • My options were: Spirit res or run Azshara -> Ashenvale -> Felwood -> Winterspring and jump down to the shelf again (and making sure I hit it or have to run again). Naturally I chose a sprit res, but even that required a bit of a run. The was no button for returning to graveyard and you couldn’t climb the northeastern coast of Azshara. I had to run to the beach at the tip and then back to get my spirit res…

  • I remember being a melee hunter till I was 40ish and using Herod’s axe from SM. I remember levelling 44-49 in ZF. I remember grinding 50-60 in Winterspring and by Karazhan (forgot name of zone).

  • The Loch Modan quest, Wanted: Chok’Sul. I remember running all the way to the far corner of Loch Modan trying to kill this ogre and getting killed many times on my Mage. Then a guild mate offered to help and I remember the moment I saw the dwarf hunter come riding into view over the ridge on his white night sabre and literally one shotted all the ogres in the camp and then proceeded to slay Chok’Sul without pausing. I was in awe, admittedly he was level 70 at the time and geared in full Kara gear, but still have memories of that Dwarf Hunter on his white night sabre coming to my rescue

  • Kharanos and old Brill, the first towns you visit are bound to be special for anyone as well as the path from the starting area to that town whether it’s Goldshire, Bloodhoof Village, Razor Hill or Dolanaar. In particular I’d like mention the gates of Ironforge, back in the days when it was blowing a blizzard at the entrance with snow flying all over the place. Places in Dun Morogh and Tirisfal Glades that I remember most vividly are the mongrel farmstead in Tirisfal with Maggot Eye and the Agamand Mills. As for Dun Morogh I remember the western part well with Brewnall Village and the yetis right by Kharanos and let’s not forget the yeti elite in Chill Breeze Valley.

  • In vanilla I would ask my pug if I could kite a room or two because I enjoyed it (scholo ^^). I ended up with non stop invites for MC Garr banish duty and friends from so many different guilds, Greater times than 50 words can do justice.

  • I remember when my first thing when levelling wasn’t “DO IT AS QUICK AS POSSIBLE” but slow down and enjoy the game, explore, earn money, make friends.

  • Original Westfall first time around…but before that I would have to say walking into Stormwind for the first time. Crossing that bridge, the music kicking in. Goosebumps!

  • When repentance was the top tier in the paladin’s protection tree. I remember a level 58 hunter challenged my level 45 prot pala for a duel. At first I wasn’t serious, but he couldn’t kill me with my blessing of protection, divine shield, holy shield and heals. He died a slow and painful death. Oh, and divine intervention; such a beautiful spell.

  • My first character was a Night Elf, and the moment I realized that the world was actually bigger than Teldrassil… the name of the game naturally came out of my mouth. “Wow !”, I interjected.

  • At the release of SoO Heroic Mode, we kept wiping on the first boss, but on one try, we managed to kill the blobs to kill him until almost everybody died; as a mage, I managed to IceBlock our way out of P2 alone to confirm the kill.

  • Teldrassil – making a nelf hunter and just being in absolute awe at how different a game wow was to anything I’ve played before…

  • Now it feels very silly but at that time it felt amazing being so overwhelmed by the tremendous vastness of it all and the mysteries that were sure to still be hidden in the world, just waiting to be discovered?

  • There are many moments in wow that I remember, but the oldest one is leveling in old Eastern Plaguelands and doing my first Stratholme run! I love that zone event after cata hit!

  • My best moment was when I won the Less than 1% drop chance mount which was just great, my best memory was the beginning of Lich King, Burning Crusade was cool but so many more people at Lich King boats

  • Leveling my first character in Mulgore. Killing the mobs. Dying all the time and looting white items with a large smile.

  • Killing Illidan for the first time, rotating shamans to the rogue group to give them heroism many many times, not to mention how hard we focused on the end and how loud everyone screamed when he went down! 😀 Imo, the best wow memories comes from raiding at its finest… But then again, I am a PvE person ^^

  • ahhh the good old memories…..
    The first time I ever stepped into deadmines. 😛
    I was absolutely overwhelmed by the whole experience, more specifically, when the cannon went off and Mr Smite yell out about landlubbers 😀
    I made it my lifetime WoW achievement to 1shot Mr Smite, every few levels I would see if I could oneshot him, one day I achieved my goal.
    It was monumentus. Damn you Mr Smite -.-

  • Oh my that are so many places. Best places for me are trisfall glades and undercity.

  • Well since this was my first character. Me and the guild master hanged out in Zangramash on mushrooms. xD It was so funny. I had many good moments when i was in that guild. Sadly i made mistake leaving the guild. Kinda miss the old times.

  • I was helping my friend get his Onyxia Helm before they upgraded her to level 80. We roll up and see a group getting ready to go in. A few 80’s and the rest are 60-70. I go in, solo the shit out of her, and when I come back, they’re recovering from a wipe. My friend got his helm too.

  • Probably most funniest thing we did in the guild was me and guild master(Magtheridon was kinda dead in some point) was spamming guild chat with random stuff and laughing our heads off. 😀

  • Running Wailing Caverns in TBC. We were posting in chat and LFG, got a few guys together. Still needed a healer. Warrior we PuGed with

  • Vanilla: Sitting on the thanadal span chain and mind controlling mid 20 alliance players into jumping off. That swim was balls if your hearth still had an hour on it.

  • I used to be really bad at earning gold. I started playing in vanilla, but I didn’t get epic flying until about the time Ulduar was released. The reason why I got epic flying is because this awesome dude on my server gave me the gold. This inspired me so much that I worked on earning the gold so I could pay him back and ended up paying him back the full 5k in two days.

  • It was on WOTLK pre-patch, zombie event. Im with my friend came to crossroads to infect everybody in there, but we started to push aside, and when we thought this is the end for us – the large crowd of zombies came from nowhere screaming “ATTACK!!!!” And then crossroads fell)

  • My server had an elekk march that my guildies and I happened upon in Stormwind – and then some of us (with me leading) took it to a whole new level. Some Hordies logged onto their Alliance alts and asked wtf we were doing and Alliance people from the raid group logged on to giggle with Horde people in Orgrimmar, myself included. Everyone got laughs 🙂

  • I was a total noob, WoW was my first ever MMO and I had no clue whatsoever as what was effective play. I made a Nelf hunter and practically grinded my way to level 16 or something, running around just killing mobs, having no idea what to do but having immense fun having to effing clue what I was doing. I remember just running around the forests, gaping in awe at how big it all was, and this was just the Nelf starter areas. Imagine my awe when I found it that was just a scrap of the World. A couple of fellow “no clue what we’re doing’ers” made a guild named Spears United, we had so much fun with each other, about in- and outgame stuff.

  • Vanilla wow. I’m on my level 36 druid walking through Stranglethorn vale trying to hit level 40 for the coveted frostsaber mount. I’m running to kill some tigers when I see a night elf hunter being attacked by a big scary tauren warrior. Being a noble and protective night elf, it was my duty to help a brother in need. Together we killed the enemy tauren and continued questing throughout STV for the rest of the day.

  • Me and 4 friends doing my warlock quest for the mount, even if they were lvl 70s and i just got to 60. Was cool. The other would be completing the immortal acheivement in Naxx, we were trying for about 6 weeks before we finally got it. Certainly made farming Naxx more fun trying to complete it.

  • It’s not a memory, but a ongoing thing. Me and my dad play WoW together. He introduced me somewhere around end of vanilla/ beginning of TBC, and we usually sub when a major patch rolls in. My main used to be a dwarf hunter, but I ended up putting him on the burner and made a human warrior, like my dad. He plays Arms and I play Fury.

  • Years ago, we would play on the weekends or on holiday breaks until 2 a.m. We never did raids, mostly because he didn’t like waiting hours, then having people bail because food or other reasons. We have started raiding after Cataclysm, through LFR.

  • It was getting ready to do ahn qiraj. The guild leader made the call to prepare for it by getting rep and material and gold to get all the consumables and the recipes and the nature resist gear and our guild was always in silithus. We always had a group there getting texts or killing horde or skinning worms and it was a great month or so. There were other times like that but the first was just memorable for being the first.

  • Looking back at how I’ve learned so much more about WoW in the last 8 years, progressing, raiding, learning the meta game, focusing more and more on just getting the best gear, min-maxing, etc.

  • I wish I could get that “innocence” back I had at the start in 2005, looking at the World of WoW and just gaping in awe and how awesome, big and magical it all was. Just stupidly doing what seemed fun, not caring about what was the best way to play and what stats mattered and all that. Hanging around with guildies in abandoned cabins in the middle of zones, just chatting, going exploring with friends.

  • Back in Burning Crusade. I’d just got into my first raiding guild. First attempt on Gruul, I’d never done a 25 man raid before or anything above 10 man for that matter. Killed him on the first attempt and the entire raid was cheering on vent. That actually blew me away, I hadn’t experienced anything like that online before. It wasn’t hardcore or anything special in the grand scheme of things but it meant a lot to the people who were there.

  • I’d never played an MMO before (apart from RS, lol) with IRL friends and one of mine had just started playing WoW as well, so we levelled together and we really shared a lot of lols.

  • When friends and I were levelling new characters, one of them was new, but she picked a Paladin. So we went through until we got to the logging camp near Goldshire. She started slaughtering any cows she saw and we teased her about being the ‘holy blade against the bovine’.

  • Mine is more recent. As a background, I only played in vanilla, all of BC and early half of wrath, 95% of which I was just a regular raider in a regular guild.

  • My favourite time was probably when we were complete noobs, I was a 40-something warlock and he was a 39 pally, we just ran around on our mounts looking for anyone to kill…we had literally been doing this for around 6 hours, to the point where it was 6am and I wanted to go to bed because I didn’t want my parents to wake up and be like “wtf haven’t you slept” lol. We killed in total I think maybe 2 horde who were quite obviously looking back either goldfarmers or bots but we didn’t care, I was like 14 back then in 08 and it was the best thing ever to kill a horde. Damn. I miss that fun that came with just doing whatever you wanted to…might have to re-evaluate some aspects of both my real and wow life.

  • I just came back to the game late in MoP in time for the expansion and joined a guild made a week before Highmaul. The guild almost fell apart in January with all the original founders leaving the game/moving on to a different guild because they weren’t patient enough to get the Heroic Imperator kill and there were still a handful of us that stuck around. At that time, one of the officer who was a recruit stayed and I told him I’d help him rebuild. He took the GM-ship and I became an officer of a small guild.

  • Stepping into wailing caverns for the first time back in vanilla. that dungeon hooked me into the game. Amazing atmosphere. Creating a group for Deadmines when dungeon finder didn’t exist.

  • We went from an 8 man team that had to pug with an almost complete mythic team in a small server. We finally killed Heroic Blackhand last night and we’re 2-3 bodies short of mythic. With the group that we have, we’re all confident we can get at least get some progression on mythic.

  • When i was new to this game ,and i was level 11, exploring the world and i was on the boat a higher level char gave me 1 g ! He/she didnt say anything,just started trading me.I was sooo happy 🙂 1 gold is not much i know ,but 7years ago for me it was .

  • My friend played since Vanilla. Due to a number of different circumstances, he quit at the end of Wrath, having raided through ICC up to the Lich King, after which his guild fell apart because the leader was using the guild to get up to that point then jumped ship to a larger guild on a different server.

  • My most vivid memory of WoW is when i brought a friend into the game. He had some trouble with the basics. Me and my entire guild got him to believe that you had to visit a class trainer to move your new abilities onto keybinds!

  • The day i started, A friend i played another game with and i decided to give wow a try. We made ally chars and took ages gob smacked at stomwind. We walked from stormwind all the way to ironforge ( tram what tram) died countless times and both felt this was the biggest game we had ever seen.

  • Being in the first raid on our server to down the first four bosses in ICC when it came out, stage by stage. And so he played for the first time since Wrath, and the joy in his voice was fantastic. And as his month was running out, he said he wanted to do something he never got the chance to: he wanted to run ICC. Which was good, because just before he started up again, I had run and completed ICC by myself.

  • Exploring!! I remember I used to love exploring, and was really taken by the atmosphere in Ashenvale especially and Stonetalon. Just used to run around and look…

  • In November of 2013 I had to have surgery to fix my pectus excavatum. When I got out of the hospital I was still really really high on morphine and as soon as I got home I played WoW for the first time. I made a Worgen and ran around the starting area doing nothing for a few hours. Needless to say it kept me really busy.

  • My best memories go back to the burning crusade. I liked the difficulty of the dungeons, and i liked the prequests.. to some degree (not to repeat them for some alts, but hey..).

  • I started in End Vanilla just before BC dropped. I rolled a troll hunter, i had a pet tiger named tiger, and i melee’d everything i fought. I had friends and guilds i’ve joined and so many memories that i cannot even express!!!! My FAVORITE moment, was being on my (BC) Belf Pally at level 62 having my EPIC KODO PVP MOUNT!!!! I was so estastic!!! I miss the feeling of going “Ding!” and having your whole guild woo you for being one step closer to cap!

  • I liked arena those days when it was new. I liked to raid karazhan and will always remember it as the best 10 man raid. I loved to go to the 25 man raids as well..

  • great memory was during Cataclysm, I mained a Worgen DK that i loved to death!! I remember capping Herb/Scribe and just feeling so accomplished that i can finally craft endgame stuff! This to me was the greatest and favorite thing ever. I loved leveling professions and having the ability to mass farm/produce, but now i have lost that feeling in Warlords, and it actually makes me sad knowing i’ll never have that feel again :(!

  • Funniest moment – Back in either Vanilla or BC, logged into WoW and was inside the Stormwind trade district inn, walked out to people saying horde were attacking and this lowbie running around the corner yelling “THE ORPHANAGE, WE MUST PROTECT THE ORPHANAGE!” and then getting cut down. It became a line my friends and i yelled when fighting horde for years after that.

  • I was raiding with Baffo (HUZZA!) at the time and we had tons of fun! Me, Darkstarr, Haargoth, Lazermon and Lell (hunters) had our personal feral and shammy (Halby!), and ruled the board on most fights. We also had tons of fun being bastards and screwing up pulls when we got bored.

  • What made me fell in love with the actual world of warcraft was leveling and gathering proffessions, when I first went near Goldshire, it was packed with people talking and doing some weird stuff which I thought was pretty hilarious since how the leveling started.

  • So many memories over the years of playing the game,i cannot choose one.But outplaying people in PvP 1vX and arenas with friends would bring many lol’s and rofl’s. 🙂 good times christ.I dont want a beta key now,can you turn back time for me please??Pretty please?

  • A holydin said in healer chat not to heal hunters and our shammy was nice enough to tell us, so he ended up with 4 misdirects on the next pull. -After a nasty wipe on trash in BT, our raidleaders (Muppers and Zesauce) started yelling at the locks and priests, while I casually mentioned in our hunterchat that it was nice that nobody remembered we had Scare Beast.

  • Level 78, in howling fjord back in WotLK. Was a frost mage with the perma pet glyph and happily wandering around stomping things, questing etc when a level 80 mage (other faction on pvp server) tears up and hits me with a couple of spells. I hit invis and started running but, of course, the pets still following me so he’s just following the pet.

  • Trying to raid Stormwind with my guild while drunk, we even got our toons drunk ingame and had hard time entering the city. And guild leader passed out after like 2 hours and we could hear him snoring.

  • At the starting months of World of Warcraft I remember open world PVP in Black Rock Mt. The funniest moment for me was when my friend would use mind control on players to throw them off the cliff into lava.

  • My fondest and funniest memory was riding around Icecrown Citadel and posing for boss kills on my magic rooster, which stood in stark contrast with the scenery and the rest of the raid group’s glorious woolly mammoths and proto drakes. Frozen chicken, anyone?

  • I remember the first time I ran Stratholme living, I met this amazing druid healer, Ijy, who helped get our group through, what used to be a 1 hour or more run! But over that hour I never knew I’d meet my future wife! Thanks WOW!

  • The neverending fun at Sen’jin during Village-hours time, which seemed to be so populated for YEARS! That and when me and one of my old roleplaying buddies spent three hours RPing at Jintha’Alor and ‘accidentally summoning Hakkar’.

  • I was in a half decent raiding guild, we weren’t top tier or anything, but we where making progress. I wasn’t able to make every raid due to real life commitments, but i maid enough that i had a spot on the raiding team whenever i could make it.

  • A few guildies and I were up late one night and we decided to go mess around with the horde. We traveled out to Thunder Bluff (This was during Vanilla) and decided it would be awesome to have a race around the outer edge of the plateaus of TB. If anyone remembers, the raid mod to have back then was CTraid. It had an option where if someone died there would be a bell dinging noise. I never laughed so hard in my life listening to the dinging happening every few seconds while trying not to fall off the ledge lol.

  • Unfortunately, as we where progressing through firelands, my PC gave up the ghost, leaving me using an old machine that simply didn’t have the specs to handle the raid smoothly. Leaving me unable to play at peak ability, handicapping me beyond my pre-exisitng handicap of being poorly geared. (i didn’t GAF about farming gear as long as i had good enough to keep our tank alive, and i could compensate for the poor gear when my machine was running smoothly)

  • So! i dropped out of the guild on my main, to join a much more casual guild who where struggling to start raiding, which my dad played in. After a few false starts in raids where people would completely mess up on the tactics completely, i decided that in order to ilustrate the importance of planning and tactics, i’d take them to clear the litch king, wich i knew would still wipe the lot of them if they ignored tactics. I’d assume that after a few days of wiping on old content they’d realise that tactics actually are important and to actually do the prescribed reading before we went into the raid, so they had some vague idea what was going on.

  • Haha this was during Wrath and just thinking about it makes me laugh. We were a small guild who actually became decent friends after a while and we tried to get through Lich King together. While we were waiting for others in vent and in guild chat before we ran our weekly raid, Andy went, ‘Haha Oda, I beat you in robot unicorn attack’. It was around that time that game was getting popular so a few people in our guild would play once in a while. Andy showed us a link so we could all see his score.

  • So, after a few days of wipes on the litch king, i figured “sure, they aren’t reading the tactics but they must be starting to learn them by trial and error, right?” Scroll forwards to a week later, and after all that sweat blood and tears, one of our tanks nearly having a breakdown from their armour repair costs, we had finally downed the litch king. a year late. The joy was palatable and the guild finally learned the importance of knowing what the [email protected]#$ is going on, we cleared BWD the next week in one evening with only a handful of wipes.

  • really good memory was that I have always been on an RP server. I saw this flagged alliance mage a few feet up the ground… but AFK for I don’t know how long. I don’t like to flag myself but I couldn’t help it. Normally, I couldn’t reach him bc I play a warrior. I tried charging.. didn’t work. didn’t have a bow or a gun equipped for some reason… But because warriors can use most, if not all, weapons, I totally upped my throwing skill by continuously throwing a knife over, and over, and over, until this mage died (we were the same level). He fell to the ground and I laughed so hard and ran away before he could come back and realized he got thrown-knifed to death by a melee dps.

  • It was in my Stormwind days and I was stood outside the Pig. This Paladin approached Vaxir and asked if she had bandages. Vaxir said yes, down this alley way… So they went down the alley and Vaxir attacked him and drank loadsa his blood then hid away when his friends came to look for him.

  • We were doing Trial of the Champion (Wrath) (I think that’s what the raid was called) and we were 10 maning it (same guild as previous). We were waiting for our raid leader to come back and of course, Ben/our resto druid goes, “I wonder if my little train will pull the boss” (it was like a mechanical train that you could manuever around). And we were all like, dude, try it. So he directs the train into the champions and nothing happens… then suddenly they all start running for us. In vent: “Oh shit oh shit!” was met with tons of laughter as we, in vain, tried to run away. Raid leader comes back laughing.

  • For me? Making a Death Knight. In fact, it was this bag of bones. Going Unholy, having a pet Ghoul that was tanky and killy as hell, stacking Blood Plague, Ebon Fever and Frost Fever on my enemy to buff Scourge Strike to insane levels…

  • In Wotlk we decided to do For the Horde! After 1 hour of searching we did a 30 man group and just went. In the way we found another group composed of 12 people and they rolled and 2 left to go back since max raid size was 40. We killed all the bosses except in Stormwind City,it was so crowded that we couldn’t even get in after some point. After almost 2 hours of trying to get inside we gave up and decided to login again at 5 PM to go sneaky.

  • From my start in MMORPGs with Ragnarok Online, I’ve never been big on leveling. So you can imagine how slowly I moved through WoW when I started Aklom, my Undead Warrior, back in ’04. I took my time, socializing with my guild (who constantly yelled at me for not even having a mount yet), and exploring with my younger brother.

  • The first was after finishing the Northshire starter quests and thinking that this was actually quite huge compared to some levels I was used to on the Playstation 1 and Nintendo 64 at the time. Though I did have a PS2 as well but even so. Anyways…(Got to love the red hostile mobs in the starter zone though, that was a challenge. Think I died once or twice in that area.)

  • PvPing in the wilderness (though I couldn’t do much at level 20 or 30), ignoring collect-five-bear-butts quests to find some weird areas, and overall just ignoring the vagaries of high school for the beauties of Azeroth.

  • going through the O section and you just stop dead. There Elwyn Forest is just there and it continues to sprawl ever onwards and yeah, my thoughts of the starter area being big was quickly forgotten.

  • everybody riding around on Kodos did drive me to get a mount of my own, which meant I did have to level, which meant I eventually got swept into the endgame grind. But for a while, life was pretty relaxing in WoW. I miss it sometimes– but hey, raiding is fun too.

  • Started playing in The Burning Crusade at Halloween with my friend. Most epic experience ever in my gaming history. Just leveling at the starter area as a human Rogue was so fun,

  • Hitting my first cap character, it was shaman during TBC and i remember the next day my guild brought me in for my first raid ever. Karazhan it was the best

  • i completed the starter area (took about 2 hours) I went down to Goldshire and there I see all the Halloween things and Hordes fighting with level 70 epic gear.. it was so cool to watch them fight. daaaaaamn so much to write about the time i started play it was so epicccccccccc now I have to say goodbye 🙂

  • Mine is when i played holy priest during vanilla and started my very first dungeon Deadmines and everything went chaos , we managed to kill van cleef at the end but it took alot of patient and hours, i was such a beginner back in those times.

  • We had everything in SSC and TK on farm except for Vashj and Kael. It was literally the night before they were set to nerf those two raids and remove the attunement need for BT, and all we needed to finish it was Kael. We got to him, and managed to down him on the third attempt. The whopping and hollering was like nothing else I’d experience before or since. We were the last guild on our server to claim BT attunement and the Hand of A’dal title legitimately.

  • Invincible dropping from LK solo, 8 minutes before realms went down for pre-patch 6.0 mainentenace. A week before that my friend “bought” it from BMAH for 999,999 gold. He was pretty salty after i linked him the achievement :p

  • The sheer mass of this game. I started off as an gnome warlock in Dun Morogh and zooming out on the map gave me the feeling i would never ever could explore anything. The following year was really amazing. I started with TBC btw. .

  • 5 allys about to gank me, im doooom not until, my good paladin friend used divine intervention on me making me a immune to all damage for 3mins, he died and i logged out safety

  • Pubbing ST with 3 other shadow priests and a tank (they were 4). Tank dies, group leader tells me he’ll kick me from group if I drop shadow form to res the guy. Was the most fun I ever had in an instance.

  • Mines probably entering ICC25 for the first time, the atmosphere was so spooky, yet epic. Seeing Marrowgar in the distance while clearing trash was just amazing. I wish I could have that feeling back. 🙁

  • My friend and I first started playing WOW in December after launch. We had just become roommates and were Lanning in the kitchen ( lol ). We levelled together to about 26/28 or so. We were in Blackfathom deeps. And we were definitely noobs. Still figuring out which spells to use, and whatnot. But we had played EQ a bit so we had the healing/tank dynamic down. I was a warrior tank, him a Undead Priest.

  • We got past the 2nd last boss ( the caster guy who puts everyone to sleep ) and there were those candles behind him. Each candle spawns a wave of adds. But it was our first time in there, so after a few minutes a groupmate says: “Light a Candle Kaer!” I’m Kaer, I went and found it, clicked it and I had no idea what was happening. So I saw there were more candles and I’m like, oh, obviously I have to light these to open a door….

  • This was an older and smaller city. But the scale of it still stunned me, and it was then I started to realize just how much content WoW had. That I was at the start of a long, interesting and fun journey. It’s common not to appreciate things at the time, but my first glimpse at the city made me really anticipate what was to come.

  • In Blackwing Descent, I would teeter on the edge of the elevator and leap of faith unsuspecting guildies so they would comically fall to their untimely death. All while yelling “by elevators be purged!”

  • I clicked all the candles and we were swarmed with crabs and crustaceans and and I couldn’t get threat on everything so somehow we survived long enough to have his healing pull threat off of me. I remember seeing his little undead head in the corner of the room with what felt like an army of crab-men converging on him and I couldn’t do anything about it.

  • It was the first time I knew I’d upgrade my account and keep playing. The first time I decided I’d wrap my head around all these spell ranks, get to grips with all the skills my class (Warlock, at the time) had and it’d all be worth it.

  • we were laughing, like in tears, the rest of the group was too. I apologized but no one could even play for a few minutes as we were dying from laughter. To this day I sometimes rarely hear, “Light a Candle, Kaer!” whenever I fuck something up in battlefield or whatever game we’re playing together.

  • I think a part of what hooked me on WoW was the combination of how social & complex it was. Not stupidly complex. Not insufficiently complex. It felt just right – that things were achievable, but you got a sense of accomplishment. The game’s neither as social nor as complex as it once was. The devs cater to the instant gratification crowd, then wonder why they can’t create content quickly enough to keep people engaged. It’s a shame, really.

  • Starting the Warlock quest that allowed you to learn Ritual of Doom. Having to form up a small raiding party just to get through those Legionnaires was so fun.

  • When the Sunwell patch came out in BC, some guildies and I ran Magister’s Terrace for the first time. We were undergeared for it, but we kept trying and finally finished it at like 3am. And to top it all off, I got the phoenix pet from KT at the end. It was such a fun night.

  • It was during the Midsummer festival, I made it my task to visit every single shrine, even the horde ones (I was Alliance). And that’s what I did, all day I ran around EK and then Kalimdor on my 60% speed mount. I saw the gates of Orgrimmar for the first time and Thunder Bluff too. As I went along I made sure I filled out my map of each zone I visited.

  • My favorite memory occurred during BC. My uncle and I were both 14 and had recently purchased the game together. We rolled orcs, I a warrior and he a shaman. We were noobs and had no idea what the hell we were doing, so we decided to explore. We came upon Tiragarde keep, and we thought that the NPC’s inside of it were real alliance players. For about 5-10min we deliberated attacking these real players and capturing the base for ourselves. It was exciting as all hell. However, once we killed like 3 of them, we discovered they were NPC’s and we laughed hysterically for like 10min straight. Great times.

  • My favorite moment was the first time I hit level cap way back in Wrath and had a bunch of friends and friends of friends congratulate me. But then it was quickly followed by my least favorite moment: spending the next few months chain running heroics alone while my friends were either too busy raiding or doing BGS or Ranked Arena to help me gear up and learn the game.

  • I have waay too many memories, mostly from tbc. Back when there was no dual spec I was leveling my priest in the tbc zones as disc but it was really tough.. holy fire and smite hit for nothing and I would go oom after every pull. So I ended up spamming trade chat all day to run dungeons to level up.. I made so many friends this way! Every time I would log on I would whisper one of the many people I befriended and we would start a group and run stuff. It was so much fun, sometimes I still wonder what those people are doing nowadays, if any of them still play wow.

  • very fond memory is the world pvp on isle of quel’danas. I really hated doing dailies but I would occasionally tag along with my 2v2 partner. A lot of times we ended up 2v2ing other people.. no one interrupted the skirmishes or anything. It was a lot of fun (and a lot of shit talking heh).

  • Downing H LK 10 with my guild for the first time. We were actually in the first 10 guilds on our server to do it, and that was with Midwinter/Altwinter/Pugwinter taking up three of the first 4 spots. It was definitely a high point in WoW for me, but the sad thing is the grind of pushing H ICC ended up contributing to that guild’s burnout partway through the first raid tier in Cata. It’s a real shame because we had a fantastic group.

  • I can still remember my friends and I finally meeting up in Ashenvale during Vanilla. Some of us started nelfs, some started dwarves/humans so we had been playing a week or two and hadn’t all met up yet. We trekked across what at the time was a fresh, vast, and dangerous world to meet up. And then stand in awe as a level 60 Horde rampaged through and melted our level ~20ish faces off.

  • Back in TBC I was told by my current guild that I wasn’t viable for a main raid slot, the GM/Raidleaders brother was also a fury warrior that out geared me a good amount, they finally needed a filler for HKM/Gruul. Beat the pants off nearly everyone in the raid in just my few Karazhan pieces, destroyed the GMs brother as well. They were so impressed that they quickly booted me from the guild when I pointed this out. Got an immediate invite to another guild I had friends in and went on to be a raidleader and progress all the way through Hyjal while that first guild ended up breaking up because they couldn’t beat Hydross enrage timer…justice…

  • The entire Sunwell raiding experience. Black Temple and Mount Hyjal raids were RELATIVELY easy with only a handful of bosses that really caused trouble for my guild. Most of the bosses? Easy. A couple of wipes and we got the boss down.

  • Look, I really, really, needed money, so I decided for once I would “partake” in the activities of Goldshire, Argent Dawn EU. One virtual striptease later, I found myself quite a bit richer and in a relationship with my current fiancée of 3 years.

  • But Kalecgos, the very first boss, on Sunwell? Oh my jesus christ. The first few nights we did it, we got completely stomped by the boss every time and BADLY too. It was like pull, do some dps/heals, something goes wrong and we wipe all within under 3 minutes. We were completely stumped on the strategy. We read about it, we researched the fight, etc – but there was not a lot of information sharing going on with the fight since most guilds were in the same position and didn’t want to reveal any precious strategy before they cleared the raid.

  • There was this Druid on Mal’Ganis that grinded High Warlord twice. He actively avoided playing against us. One AB were playing and my friend gets a whisper from someone else in our group. He said “So and so is my cum dumpster.” So he tells us this and we all look at our minimap, and two of our guys are in their graveyard not letting this two time High Warlord out. He got so mad he AFK’d out of the bg. Mal’ganis horde ques in Vanilla could be like an hour long.

  • I managed to get to Outland, I can’t remember how. I ended up filling up my map of Nagrand at level 45 and completely fell in love with that zone. Today it remains my favourite zone in WoW. I tried Zangarmarsh too but got killed by a giant wasp within the first few seconds so I called it a day and went back to questing in Feralas or somewhere like that.

  • Downing heroic Garrosh 3 days previous to 6.0. We were a small guild formed by 2 groups of IRL friends (exactly 10 total). We started playing in march that year (when SoO was already out for around 6 months) and most of the players had never played wow before. Going from total newbs to total badasses (only guild on alliance that killed heroic (new mythic) garrosh pre 6.0). We had around 400 wipes on him, and around 300 on blackfuse, it was far from easy but the feeling was epic!!

  • Successfully pulling off an event with a massive, zombified Crust-Burster, a Death Knight, a Frost Wrym, a horde of skeletons, and a few abominations. Running RP events with 40+ people can be a nightmare but when it all goes to plan good god you’re on cloud nine!

  • I starting playing in Vanilla during a free trial, so there were tons of players around me as I leveled (NElf). WoW was the first open-world game I played and I was hooked.

  • my favorite memory is way back before they brought in Azeroth flying, the game seemed much friendlier, and the bloody horde couldn’t just fly away while ganking lvl 10’s at Sentinel hill.

  • As I was questing in Darkshore, I started seeing chat messages about “IF”. I realized it was a place from context – I didn’t search the web or ask around (I don’t think I had discovered Thottbot or WoWWiki yet). All the buzz about this “IF” place made me realize it was important.

  • I used to be in guild named Someone stole my bicycles or something like that and we had events with insane participation.In example we jumped into Un’goro crater while drinking noggenfogger to see how many of us would survive(of course all mages coincidentally survived,them lucky b#st$rds).It was a epic sight though,over 100 dead skeletons in a big pile surrounded by some skeletons that didn’t die(“mages”grrr).

  • When I got to Wetlands and saw a signpost pointing towards Ironforge, I set off to find it. A long walk later, I run up the path and see the entrance. I thought Darnassus was cool, but this place was amazing. So alive with people. So many things to see. Players on mounts – I hadn’t seen any yet. An auction house – I spent hours looking through all the stuff. And that music – still my favorite in the game.

  • The first time I glitched in Mount Hyjal and saw that Archimonde’s skeleton. each mint from 2005> 2009 was best memory for me . my last 19 bg in wsg before turning 20 I topped the leader board!! was so happy with my prospectors axe. good times.

  • My favorite memories were our guild’s first kills of Lady Vashj and Kael’thas Sunstrider [when the content was current].The amount of weeks that we spent wiping on those two bosses was terrible, but the screams and cheers when those two bosses died on our Vent was unforgettable.

  • I absolutely loved raiding in early Wrath. I never got a chance to gear up in TBC, although I hit max level and farmed all the mats for my first purple on my warrior just in time for Wrath to come out. Anyway, Naxxramas and Obsidium sanctum were the first raids that I ever got into. I mostly pugged raids at the time, answering “LFM dps for OS25” in trade chat in Dal.

  • I got invited to their group, played it cool and all. We then enter, and The first thing that happens is that my pet keeps running off…. repeaditly (spells?), I thought it was because of the sad, and very red smily-icon at its icon… Didn’t know there was something called “aggro” stance back then, or what it ment for the pet xD.

  • I remember getting my mage into a Nax25 late one friday or saturday night. It was a mostly guild run and ran smoothly. Most of their clothies were much more geared than I was so tons of drops went to me by default. The raid leader didn’t mind so much because I was very competitive on the meters despite my heroic 5man gear, and he was also impressed that I didn’t die during Heigan’s dance. So, we get to Kel-thuzad and downed him fairly easily, when The Soulblade drops. I roll on it. I think it was the first roll I made that anyone else rolled against me on, and I won it with something really high, like a 98. So the raid leader gives it to me despite the protestations of another clothie DPS in the guild who had been waiting for it a while. I don’t think he meant to do that, because he messaged me afterwards and said “Don’t worry, you keep it. Your dps was way better than [complainy guildie]’s. Just promise me you’ll come back and raid with us again if we ever need a pug.” I messaged him/her a few times after that, but they never needed the pugs. And anyway, I’m pretty sure I got in another guild shortly after that.

  • When I for the first time, and by accident met a group of people at the Black Fathom Deeps (isn’t that what it’s called?) In Darkshore, with my little Nightelf huntard 😛 Back in TBC when I first got my flying mount. Best moment in WoW by far.

  • Customer support restoring my old, hacked account and merging it with my main battle.net account, so amazing getting all my achievements back, seeing some characters still sat at 60 way back from 2006.

  • I remember I registered my account at around 6:30 in the morning and I was nervous about this game. I didn’t know if I had made a mistake buying it and then paying for a subscription. I could tell my mom thought I was nuts. But once the main menu music started playing and I saw the character creation, I was in love. I could not focus at all that day during class, and all I wanted to do was to get back to my level 3 dwarf warrior.

  • my single biggest moment was probably when I finally hit 1800 rating in arena so I could but a weapon. My computer was awful, so pvp was even more of a challenge with <20 fps than it souls have been. But I made it, even if it was only briefly.

  • The first time my old guild graduated from Kara to Gruul’s Lair (we finally managed to get an extra 15 people together) and then when Zul’Aman dropped and we could start going there instead. I have tons of memories though from 2006-2009.

  • I started a few weeks before BC was released so i missed the opening of the portal events and such. But the first raid i ever did was Karazhan. It was an entirely guild group and the scale of it just blew my mind, it was so huge and seeing all of us fighting all these cool enemies with my guild who i got on with really well as we were all social back then and the fun mechanics of some bosses i thought was just brilliant. Loved every minute of it, shame it doesn’t have the same feel anymore.

  • I had a dude with some ridiculous grudge against me fucking with my ranking. It was sad he was that desperate to keep me from getting it. I still got it playing my own character myself while he had 2-3 playing him. Two of them were good friends, too, so it was amusing that most of the server knew me and the character would never chat, but the people who played him that I was friends with would talk to me through him. “Which one of you is on?”

  • Visiting Kalimdor for the first time on my warlock at level 20 to get my succubus. When the boat pulled up to Ratchet in Barrens and it read HORDE TERRITORY in dangerous red font, my fucking heart was racing. Haha, just thinking about it makes me giggle still.

  • Pvp is a bloody mess, I dont blame you. I gave up on it as well. On a side note I tried grinding my way up solo in the old honor system. At around rank 8 or so I realized something was off, I was barely getting any progress per week yet I spend a good 3-4 hours pvping daily. Little did I know about premade groups queing and working for that (solo queues could be as long as 30-40 minutes)

  • During heroic (pingpongfuck in DragonSoul), our guild master said, “Why don’t we just all stack for the balland just SPL it?”

  • Killing Lei Shen heroic after 250 attempts and then getting realm 1st Ra-den (on a shit realm but whatever). Awesome team on a social and raiding level. That was the moment it came together and felt worth it.

  • I enter the main area, with all the lava in the middle, and I get jumped by 2 warriors from East Dragons, a alliance guild that did a lot of world pvp back in the days. I sucked at PvP, still do, but I get a fear out before I die, MC one of them and then tosses him into the lava. I turn around and discovers that the other poor sod is still fear locked. So I MC him aswell and throws him into the lava aswell!

  • Well-diving in Dalaran was people mounting up and flying as high as they could above Dalaran, then re-positioning above the well that ports you to the sewers and dismounting trying to land into it. A lot of deaths were had, especially those hitting the little beam in the center. Most days you’d see people randomly dropping from the sky to their death. A few of the more seasoned “well-divers” would go for the Superman approach, removing all their gear except for the cloak in hopes it would make them more accurate (or to avoid repair costs, depends how you want to look at it). It was great. And sometimes you’d make the portal and still die while holding the pose, like so:

  • I was questing in Feralas on my first ever character, a Human Mage named Zandaros, when I met a level capped warlock mindlessly killing everything in the area. So I whisper him and ask why, and he says there’s a pet he wants. He offers to run me through Dire Maul, and when we get there he kills an Ogre outside, I loot it, and get the Sprite Darter.

  • During BC a casual raiding guild successfully poached my rogue from a serious raiding guild, all based on a Karazhan PUG we were involved in until 3am. I ran with those guys until personal bullshit pulled the core members away, and no guild has ever come close.

  • He was really jealous, but he wouldn’t let me give it to him. So I kept it and made friends with the guy. I raided with his guild in WOTLK. I actually ended up driving out to meet him while I was on a road trip through the state he lived in.

  • When I finally hit level 10 on my Blood Elf hunter when BC just dropped (my first character) and got my first pet. It took me forever to get to 10, probably because i was a noob and the starting zone was actually mildly difficult (which made it more fun), so when I did I was so elated. The taming quest was very fun, I remember going back to the Farstrider Retreat with each new pet before I could finally tame the dragonhawk I always wanted, who I named “Hawkman.” Still have that character, still use that pet.

  • Spending time with my girlfriend in Ironforge after the day’s events, back in Wrath/early-Cat. We met in Ragnarok Online and both migrated to WoW together, and after questing or raiding or whatever neither of us particularly wanted to quit for the night. We’d just idly run laps around Ironforge or fly around through the gaps in the floor while chatting about anything at all for hours on end. Why IF? I have no idea.

  • Raiding (and yes, I mean raiding – as in 10-man) Stratholme and Scholomance with my previous guild. Most of us had all green gear, and no raiding experience. Our guild leader would literally take 5 minuts to set up every single pull (there were no target markers back then) but it was still exciting. That’s where I really learned how to function as part of a group.

  • It was during ICC and our 25 man was working on progression. We just downed Festergut and were taking a short break before Rotface. Ventrillo was perfectly silent for about 3 mins, and I mean not even the sound of random clicks and background noise could be heared. When all of a sudden, the loudest fucking sneeze just blew up vent and scared me the fuck right out of town.

  • we started raiding Zul’Gurub (when we were finally geared enough), and the first time we downed the Spider boss (Mar’li) was on of the most exhilarating feelings I’ve ever had in a game. I timed the fight with my stopwatch – it took 17 minutes.

  • In the beginning of Lich King as we were waiting for other players to level up, we were doing some heroic dungeons and thought it would be a great idea to try Volunteer Work. We didn’t realize that you could damage, but not kill the volunteers to reduce the duration of the enrage. We still manged to get though it after a few wipes though (thanks in part to DK tanks being a tad bit powerful at the time).

  • My absolute personal favorite memory in WoW was killing Ragnaros with my guild on Darkspear-US; PREY was the guild’s name. They weren’t my first guild on the server, nor was it my first Ragnaros kill, but the way it went down and the celebration of the folks on Vent was a moment I’ll always remember.

  • in BC, our guild (which I recently joined) wanted to do Magtheridon despite the fact no one on the server did him since he didn’t drop ideal loot and the attunement he gave was lifted at the time. We manged to get a server first kill on him, and I was the only one who did the other attunement parts The title “Champion of the Naaru” was introduced for those that did this the following week and I was the only one on the server (minus a few server transfers) with the title.

  • To give a little more back history, I was a class officer in my first guild (Ruin) as a priest, but got burned out on healing and wanted to play dps. So I rolled mage, level and geared up, and joined the second guild as a raid adviser/officer – my main priest had cleared BWL and was close on AD rep to be able to even set foot inside level 60 Naxx, so I had “experience” in raid strategies and compositions.

  • Being told on my druid in WoW Classic in BWL on the Nefarion fight: “Druids will be rendered useless by being forced into cat form.” My response to the raid leader: “I’m already feral and in cat form…” Much grumbling came from that. But, during the ‘class call’, I was the only one in the raid that wasn’t affected.

  • A friend and I were going to take a ship to another part of the world. He was already waiting for me at the dock when the ship arrived, on vent he shouted “Hurry, ITS HERE!” Anyone who played in Vanilla and TBC can tell you how long you had to wait for the next ship to arrive.

  • I’d been raiding here and there in TBC, and throughout Wrath, but the first time I felt the profound rush of achieving something was killing LK. One of the most awesome nights ever.

  • I was a Draenei mage and did my best to hurry. With no mount and Blink being one of the worst transportation moves in the game at the time (would only teleport you 2 feet if the floor under you changed from grass to wood, etc) I hoofed it as well as I could.

  • So happy we were that we went and did the boss in Naxx for the weekly raid (remember those?) and because I had forgotten to put up Fury (remember having to rebuff it?), I pulled a room full of trash that ate the healers and wiped us.

  • Back in Classic, I was fairly nooby (as were many, many other people). I think I’d just recently hit 60, and I’d got it in my head that I wanted to run Dire Maul East. So I started looking for a group, and got my warrior friend to tank. Found a warlock to come with us, but I couldn’t find anyone else as we were heading out to the instance. My warrior buddy bailed, so I (a shadow priest) and the warlock decided we’d just try 2-manning DMEast with the voidwalker tanking, and vampiric embrace healing. We did kill a few bosses, but couldn’t complete the instance. I added the warlock to my friend list, though.

  • Out of combat rezzing in MC. thats all pallies were good for. My pally had mostly cloth and leather to heal with. Something I dont miss was having to manually click on each flightpath to get to somewhere.

  • Karazhan and flying around Howling Fjord collecting herbs inbetween raids and listening to the music, just very peaceful and really felt like I was in a “World” rather than a game

  • I had just left my guild to server transfer to a new one, they were progressing on HM Iron Council in Ulduar which I had already done. I gave them some advice on the strategy and when we downed it Fang of Oblivion dropped and the rogue officer told them to give it to me for being so helpful. As a teenager at that time I was so happy not only because it was BiS but because it looks freaking awesome. Sadly that guild stopped raiding ~2 months later so I had to transfer back.

  • I will always remember downing Rag and Nef in vanilla for the first time. So many screams on Vent. I remember my first outdoor boss too. Everyone screamed at me as I almost kited Kazzak to the raid. Good ole days

  • During the old valentines event, when I was on a totally different server and a noob, I went and got the boxes from each city, as many as possible, and I made the box with all of it combined. I was selling it, I made like 500g, this was when 70 was the cap. I don’t think since then I ever worked so hard for my gold. I was such a noob lol..

  • I started playing during Wrath. For me it was when we finally downed LK 25 Heroic on the 10% buff. Next week I got my Shadowmourne, and two weeks later I got Invincible. We were sweating during the progression, thought it was impossible, but we did it.

  • The first time I saw the green dragon that used to wander around Duskwood. This was early in BC. I was on my little warrior (that is still my main!) exploring with my husband’s warlock. Up until that moment, I had kind of begrudgingly been playing the game because husband had asked me to. But once I saw the big dragon, just pacing back and forth I was hooked. I also loved the first time I walked into Stormwind City, but it was the dragon that did it.

  • Completing the questline for my Dreadsteed back in vanilla. Also grinding a ton of felcloth and making a Robe of the Void. Never was in a raid back then, but those things were worth respect.

  • Man, yes. The worst was I worked Tuesday the last few weeks. Many phone calls home (I worked a dull job), “hon, please check the rankings!”

  • old AV. Before resilience and all that. I was in half blues, a couple world epics, and greens, but I was still good at it. Even got exalted with them (But didn’t have the gold to buy the Frostwolf Howler and BC/tokens came out 3 days after I hit exalted, go figure, heh).

  • Was home the day I got it but I think they patched the weapons in that day so I was late getting on. Mage I ran with threw a group together and I went to get my weapons. Someone stuck a star on me (markers came that patch). Friend said “don’t go into a BG today. You have a star on your head. You’d be obvious.”

  • I got BC (Midnight release, Forsaken fist-pumping cheer in the parking lot) noticing the the Stone Guard in Hellfire saluted me and noted I was a Blood Guard. Times with friends of course, but unlike the above I can do that today 🙂

  • The best, and worst, of WoW was vanilla. The best (social interaction, meaningful progress, sense of adventure) hasn’t been replicated by anyone, incl Blizzard, and the worst (no raid finder, ‘worthless’ offspecs, mount @ 40) was what made it darling. Thank you for this slideshow into the past.

  • I’ve played since vanilla so I’ve experienced a lot in this game, but my favorite memory by far was the pre-wrath scourge invasion event. My group of friends and I turned into zombies and held the Stormwind portal room for hours. Every time someone zoned into Stormwind from some sort of portal they would be killed instantly.

  • Ok heres a great story from vanilla wow. Every night for 3 months my friends and I would all camp darkshire roof tops and kill lowbies. We used a shaman who had Invunerable Mail chest with a Paladin type proc that would proc every 10 secs and give him DI for like 5 secs or osmething he would tank an entireee village of guards kill lowbies and we all on rooftops being horde. Then the mates came 20 or 30 alliance would come from no where and it’d be a WORLD event. Sometimes we would have like 5 of us vs 30 lowbies and 10-20 55-60s it was awesome. NOthing will ever recreate these types of events because of the instanced PvP people fell in love with.

  • Christmas AV games with the snow patches: Hiding in stealth with snowballs in hand; knocking unsuspecting healers ( or really any one) off the side of the bridge in front of Vann’s area lol. (not as momentous now that we have skill based knock-backs.)

  • I miss so much about Vanilla and the older versions. Everything seems so easy and watered-down now. I like that they made purples a little more accessible without being in a big raiding guild, but I think they’re a little TOO accessible, because pretty much everyone has them. Someone could make a NetFlix series called “Purples are the new Blues”.

  • discovering the gates of ironforge on my very first dwarf toon back in 2004. finishing the quest for my charger. battles between TM and SS. AV battles that would last for days.

  • New talent trees are much better. As a DK yes, I would like to have 2H and DW buffs and On A Pale Horse without giving up DPS, thank you! We no longer give up a skill to get a skill from the old trees, we get them all (for the most part).

  • I know most people probably hated it, but I loved trying to get from the Western Plaguelands to the Scarlet Monastery to do the Headless Horseman (I was Alliance at the time). I was newly level 80 and it was the first time I really did anything with my guildies. I had a blast trying to sneak past the horde lining the path, pvp-ing as best I could, and running for my life to do a very short fight once a day. I think I would hate it now, but at the time I loved it.

  • I played from the Beta right up to the Cataclysm release. WoW had consumed my life, and I was far too addicted to it (almost lost my job because of my own poor self control). I finally quit cold turkey.

  • attacking goldshire with a raid of about 14 peeps. We owned goldshire then went to stormwind. We all died horribly due to the massive number of alliance. It was awesome!

  • I’m sure this was a blast as a max level character. And I would love if they revisited it so I could try it. But I had just started wow when this happened. So for me, all it meant was that all my questgivers were either dead or would one-shot me and everyone in towns would one-shot me. It just meant I couldn’t play for a week.

  • Getting my dreadsteed with a group of 4 locks and a healer when there was still a quest chain for it. Defending the barrens from ally and being able to catch the other 60’s that didnt have a 100% mount yet and I finally did.

  • When this happened, my guild took a break from raiding to get a 25 man group together and go infect as many cities as we can. That was back in the day when Kel’Thuzad was full of Horde and it was just an awesome time. Nostalgia out the ass right now.

  • Kara for the first time was a good one too. I had no idea what i was doing and I was in gladiator’s gear, but I still got carried through it which got me into the pve part of the game so i grinded heroics and continued to raid until ICC. Havent tried any of the cata raids yet though.

  • Highest was the first time a serious raid guild tried to recruit me, just a few weeks later. Just knowing that I was good enough to get offers from raid guilds, even one that wasn’t top echelon, was a high point for me. I’ve gotten other offers since then, even one for a startup guild that wanted me as an officer, but that first time was the best.

  • First i remember how awe struck i was at the environment. Azeroth looked amazing. I remember getting lost in iron forge for the first time. I swear i spent 10 minutes running aruond before i realized it was just a big circle. ( i hadnt noticed the in game map yet)

  • Best wow memory: Ulduar 10. For 9 of us, it was our first time past Kologarn, so we had a lot of learning to do, but in the hours that followed Kolo, we 2 shot Assembly, 1 shot Auriya, 1 shot Freya and 2 shot Thorim. It was very fast progression downing bosses that most of us had never seen before. Our coordination and teamwork was spot on for that raid.

  • Best WoW moment was a 6.5 hour Shadow Labs run for the first key frag for Kara. I know 6.5 hours is just too long but not one person in the group had ever been in SLabs. What made the experience great was that no one %^&*!ed and moaned at the wipes ( 21 alone at Grandmaster Vorpil ), no one cared about repair costs etc. This was a pug with only two people in the group knowing each other. We did eventually clear the place. After it was over we stood there and joked about the fights/wipes, etc. I don’t see any of those players anymore in the game but I’ll never forget that epic run.

  • The trek to level 60 was very long back then, and would get boring after a while. During the grind i recall fondly trying to get into places we werent supposed to be in. Using summoning spell to get inside the dalaran shield, and under Iron Forge. Making my way to the Dwarf Airstrip.

  • first time in naxx, 2 hours after having dinged 80 and with hardly any good gear and not much experience healing , to be welcomed to this guild raid with an awesome bunch of people. Then getting to Grand Widow, seeing as not many of us had been there before, no one quite knew how to go about mc the adds to dispell the frenzy. Me being a wowhead #$%^& quickly looked it up and told the whole raid, we then one shot her and i get promoted to raid core elite. I know it sounds sad but that first adrenaline rush of raid healing and downing a boss was just epic. Group of guys was from

  • Something that is still a bit of an inside joke was when another Guild Warlock and I would have boxing matches. We would debuff and box (usually this took place in felwood because we were in the mid 50s) This would take forever but it was great fun.

  • Back when I was on the free trial, I was going to the Royal Quarter in UC on my first character to get a quest from Varthimas, for Ragefire Chasm or something I think. Anyways, I go in there, get the quest, when suddenly, an Alliance raid runs in to kill Sylvanas, with literally every level 80 in Undercity following them (on my server it is more crowded than Orgrimar sometimes…) I stood in a corner and hoped they didn’t attack me, since I didn’t understand the concept of PvP flagging at the time.

  • Seeing Rag for the fist time (W.T.F!), Rushing to do damage on the 2nd miniboss in Strat Deadside so you would be the possessed person. Unfortunatly there arent too many recent fond memories as the game has become too practiced and streamlined. Leveling my druid was a blast as i found out they almost have as many lives and warlocks have stolen souls.

  • My last memory was when i returned to WoW. Shortly after BC released i was tottally bored with WoW. Decided i wasnt going to play every again, vendored all my stuff and deleted my warlock. Few years later Wrath comes out and i get the Itch again. My lock was able to be restored, but i forgot about vendoring all my stuff and giving the money to a guildie. So a naked lvl 66 warlock stands in iron Forge utterly broke. it was interesting questing in Outland without any items at all, but at least there is the felguard he makes for good company.

  • ever moment last night, we are on Anub’ark on 25 man, the only time totc gives us trubble. On the third attempt we get him to 30% and all seems to be going well. At about 10% someone says in vent that we arnt going to beat the enrage timer by a few seconds. But thats ok. At 2% enrage, seen as we had everyone at about 40% (Not tanks) To reduce his healing and healing we needed to do. Everyone drops in a second save two pallas. He turns and one shots one. Vent is going crazy with everyone being really ^&*!ed off. But the last remaining pally bubbled and got that last 68% health down SOLO! We were all stunned and vent was crazy with laughing.

  • Back during the zombie invasion event, being a holy paladin and my best friend had the disease, he was very close to me, begging for my holy cleanse…. And I tried… I really tried…. I must’ve spammed cleanse atleast 7 times before it happend. My undead rogue friend became a new form of scourge before my very eyes. And he went for me! What a cruel day that was, smiting him down…. We lol’d

  • Downing 10man orbituary after about 4 hours of wiping with a group with an average ilvl around 213. I love that fight.

  • moment in this game was my first raid kill; old school Kazzak. God it was so epic. It was such a dps race that we were so eager to get Kazzak down. Fortunately we got him down on our first try.

  • When BC launched I was stationed overseas in Korea and was lucky enough to have the game purchased, installed, and ready to go when the Portal opened. The sheer amazement at being the first two people in Outlands (roommate and I), and the never ending tells we received: “What’s it like? Is it cool?” To which, we could only respond: “OMFG! Awesome!” or “Like WoW, only… lonelier”.

  • I was never into MMO’s or any type of fantasy game until I started playing WoW, I think going out to buy BC at midnight, 24 hours before the launch, and going thru the entire event sequence at the Dark Portal that night was the first time I truly embraced my nerd side. <3

  • I logged on 8am one day and found nobody in my guild logged on. I really needed 10 more badges for my cape but I didn’t wanna run heroics. So instead I joined the server’s top guild’s Kara run. At first I told them I had &*[email protected] pve gear but they said okay. These guys were all TK/SSC geared so I expected a fast run (note this was after series and series of Kara nerfs making it into a free badge instance).

  • One of my earliest wow memories from vanilla. Running through stone talon mountains with an elf and gnome warrior as a human warrior, hunting down horde. Whirlwind axe with some green iron armor was serious business!

  • my first time in Kara. I finally got attuned to the place and was equipped almost entirely in quest blues and even a few greens. That first night I got Legacy off of Opera (hunter main); it was my first epic ever and I was soooo happy.

  • Questing in STV in vanilla when a Dwarf paladin comes out of nowhere and ganks me. First thing that happens is I get hit with a giant meteor from out of the sky. Wasn’t til much later that I found out it was the server first Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros user. :/

  • My first raid that i ever did at lvl 80 was for 25 Naxx. We cleared through everything and arrived at kel’thusad. We ended up wiping 8 times over the course of 3 hours, but we finally downed him. The betrayer dropped and everyone rolled, and i ended up with the highest roll. The raid leader at the time was a hunter, who attempted to remove me from the group, so that he would win it with the second highest roll. And he accidentally ended up leaving the group himself.

  • I remember my first time doing raids. It was with a guild which I later joined. We did Zul’Gurub – I healed in Enhancement spec and caster gear – Onyxia, and possibly Molten Core. I was in my mid-60s at the time – but not on this toon.

  • When I got into Beef Gone Bad (BGB is one of the top raiding guilds on my server) and then a week later getting brought from their ‘B’ squad 25ulduar to their ‘A’ squad 25 Ulduar.

  • The ZG plague that decimated the capital cities when Zul’Gurub initially launched. Funniest. Thing. Ever. First character – Night Elf Hunter (yes, I know)

  • Best memory is when I first made it over to Stormwind from Kalimdor. I was amazed at how many characters were there (looking back it was probably a world event although I didn’t know at the time) and it seemed massive. That’s when it struck me that this was an MMO and all those characters had real people behind them.

  • For me, I recall when I was as of yet, not working for Blizzard and heard about Warcraft being taken into the MMO space. I was, let’s say, apprehensive about how the designers would be able to capture the essence of Warcraft and make it work as an MMO. I am happy to admit, that the first moment I made a character (a Night Elf during the alpha), I knew it was magic. The leaves floating down from above in Darnassus caught my attention from the start and walking into Orgrimmar for the first time, accentuated that I really was in Azeroth.

  • I continue to have fond memories of the immersive feel of the game when I first played it. It was the first time I’d ever truly felt immersed in a game. I remember grinding the Unstoppable Force for my Tauren War, and then when I got it I realized I was the coolest person to ever play the game.

  • The first character I ever made was a Night Elf Warrior. I had never played Warcraft before, but a friend convinced me to try WoW 5 years ago. I had been playing with the sound off until I got to Dolanaar, which was when I realized that the game actually had music that I could turn on.

  • I haven’t played that long to have a memory, but I will remember when some of my guildies and others raided the horde. Twas so fun, First time I was actually invited for something that I could do without instruction.

  • I have a memory from when I had just started and sunwell had come out. I was about level 60 on my highest level toon and I was reading the patch notes and they said “Daily quest max has been increased from 5 to 25” And I thought it was a typo or something was wrong because I had done more then 5 quests a day multiple times. (I didn’t know there was a different type of quest called Dailys :P)

  • The first day I went down to Northshire Abby with a stack of explosive sheep. PvP Flag > Set out sheep > Stealth > Wait . Probably the best Sunday I’ve ever had in WoW.

  • I used to farm Scarlet Monestary on my lock back in vanilla, and would pull groups of 3s. I would always use curse of doom on the 3rd add because it would hit about when i was getting to him anyway. One day i was running a guildie through so he could get some Gear, and the curse Proc’d and spawned a Doomguard. The guildie freaked out in TS and ran for it, if i hadnt’ of banished it i would have died because i was laughing too hard.

  • I friend decided to play wow I played for Troll mages he nachil to pester me
    and removed all his armor

  • Seeing Darkshore for the first time, and being amazed at how huge and beautiful it seemed, and being even more amazed to think, “and this is only a small percentage of the whole world that they’ve created!”

  • I still remember where I hit the level cap for Vanilla (lvl60). I ended up grinding the last 1/4th of the level in EPL killing undeads on my mage. Great times.

  • Going into my first ZA run. The original one. Being kinda new to raiding I didn’t know if I could handle ZA. My gm referred me to a guild that was looking for some dps for the run. I was nervous about being good enough for it. Then I topped their charts and I was just thinking, well it looks like I’m going to be some pretty sick enhancement dps. Still topping charts to this day…

  • Dethecus, Azuregos, Adkins, 80+ horde vs 40 alliance trying to down the world boss. Dead alliance everywhere. Victorious horde sheering after their kill. Adkins, know gold farmer, invited to raid grp 1 for some reason. Use some glitch to take all the loot on the dragon.

  • my best memory though is hitting Lt. Commander on the old honor system. For those who didn’t experience it (or just dont remember) each week you gained honor for your kills, and your total honor was compared against everyone else on your server. Then, based on your rank, you either went up or down ranks. Lt. Commander was rank 9 or 10 out of 13 (probably wrong) and I had been grinding it for months. I didn’t expect to get it when I logged in, and randomly looked over at my honor pain to see I had barely gotten it (I actually only had 13 people below me in that rank, so basically I beat out 13 people to get the rank instead of staying where I was). That was probably the coolest achievement I have gotten and the one that holds the fondest memories for me, even above downing raid content.

  • Many years ago, when you could only queue for one BG at a time, and when that BG queue would often last over 30 minutes, I needed something fun to do, but I couldn’t think of anything. And then one day, I saw this “invincible” mob in Stormwind. It was a Servant of Alistarj, which had come all the way from the Blasted Lands. A whole group of players and Stormwind Guards kept hitting it over and over again.

  • So me and my best friend had just finished year 12 when warlords came out.
    two 18yr old guys, 3 giant pizzas from the local pub, 12 pack of mountain dew, several bags of Doritos. We where set to pull an all nighter, til the servers went down. Ended up just going to bed when they went down, and woke up and started playing again when they came back up. Had Doritos and mountain dew for breakfast.
    His mother got so worried about our health she made us salad sandwiches.

  • I remember the funny and witty remarks people would say in Trade and General Chat while this was all going on. Probably the line I heard the most was, “Take him to the king!” So whenever the BG queue got insanely long, I decided to pass the time by kiting a Blasted Land Servant to Stormwind myself! The kiting took such a long time that, a lot of times, the BG queue would FINALLY pop while I was still kiting him! Of course, I’d be along so far in the kite that I would decide to decline the queue. “No, I’ve come this far without my PC crashing or getting disconnected; I’m gonna finish bringing him to Stormwind!”

  • I remember back in Vanilla this one time. I get a message from a guildie requesting help in the badlands against some horde ganker. I show up and we kill the guy, but he apparently does the same and is a member of the then infamous “Banana Boyz”, a popular horde guild on the server at the time. Needless to say, the fight turned into a 30 on 30 battle of wits between guilds.

  • Walking into Ironforge the first time and standing in awe of the big statue there. Then being even more awestruck once I rounded a corner.

  • Making my first character (a paladin) getting to 10, then deciding I wanted to be a druid. Not knowing how the mailing system worked, I begged chat to find someone who would hold onto the little amount of silver I had attained and to trade it to my new Druid. This person helped me, and also gave me 20 gold as a thank you for trusting in the good faith in people.

  • Zoning into AV the first time (back when it was the Old AV) and fighting for hours. Seeing Lok’Holar (by the Stormpike GY) the first time, and dying b/c I was stood still in sheer

  • My first raid. Molten Core, which started as a PuG between 4 guilds, on my druid who was resto because innervate was needed (and also the 31 point talent). This group ended up becoming my step into the raiding scene.

  • Looking into Duskwood for the first time, and being genuinely afraid of what was in there. Looking into Zul”drak for the first time and turning around… again being genuinely afraid by sheer atmosphere alone.

  • Killing Vael in BWL for the first time, after weeks of wiping. Having changed mains from my druid to a rogue as this point, I also attained the dagger from him. It was a wonderful day.

  • Going through Tirion Fordring’s quest line in plaguelands, all of it, was an amazing story. I still have the Mark of Fordring item in my bank as a reminder.

  • Stepping into Black Temple for the first time and seeing the detail and attention to the little things. I felt like I was really there… I was not prepared.

  • Beta- I woke up my Forsaken and thought- Holy Sh$# this is going to be a great game. The graphics are timeless IMO. The Feel is perfect.

  • I remember the days of World PvP, the epic Tarren Mill Vs Southshore raids, where those two places were in such close proximity, an assault on the other was ONLY sensiable! ahhah, I remember DHKs…. how miserable they were. I remember when brackers were level 11-20, 21-30, 31-40 (the most game breaking one). Oh the good times.

  • Possibly when world PvP still existed, or rather, was still realistic, ie. when mounts were limited to land (and I still argue against ‘death from above’ ganking).

  • wandering into Hitherlands on a PvP server, only to encounter a higher level enemy faction. Through shear better pathing and a brief skirmish, he chased me down and killed me. After commenting about it in chat, I was amazed to see such a rally of faction members to come and hunt him down, coordinating their attack through general chat.

  • I have a lot of great “aesthetic” moments that are imprinted in memory from Teldrassil to Dun Morogh to Elwynn Forest, but in terms of gameplay…

  • dying a couple times to overpulls when I was first starting out, this was the first time I’d really had a challenge, and it was awesome fun. Dying over and over until I figured out just the right combination of abilities… HoT myself up, Root one ogre, Moonfire the other, switch to Bear until I got to low health, Bash, heal, re-root/moonfire, back to Bear…

  • Playing WoW and listening World Up from Korn. This song became my anthem for World of Warcraft after I saw the music video of the song with a gnome. I don’t know who made it, but if you are reading this, you made my long days in Azeroth awesome.

    here is the video that I’m talking about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgN4ZrramSs

  • Won a giveaway after 5 minutes for Grove Warden carry that my friend had been trying all day to get, so naturally I gave it to him. When they pulled Archimonde, he got so excited and accidentally fat-fingered bloodlust and ended up wiping the raid group and getting kicked!

  • One of my best memories in WOW was simply meeting people in my guild and getting to know them. Learning that a few of them actually lived just an hour away from me was a cool experience. it showed that the person behind the keyboard is just like you and me, and that you will find friends in the weirdest of places. Here’s to many more friends that I will meet in the world of warcraft.

  • One of my funniest memories from Vanilla Wow was this. I rolled a female Dwarf Warrior – I wanted my warrior to be tough chick and not a babe. Back in the day female dwarfs were rare and I kinda liked that. I had people tell me that my warrior was the first female dwarf they had seen in the game. I had one random person as me to put a certain friend of his on my friend s list because he had never seen a female dwarf. I did. When he logged on I whispered to him and we met in the zone I was questing in. We ended up questing together for several levels.

  • I lived in the dormitory when I was in high school 10 years ago. There was one night three of my best friends and I escaped from the campus to raid Karazhan. Next day morning, on our way back to school, we ran into our headmaster…

  • Back in the vanilla days, a few friends and I were teaching a friend how to play. We soon realized that no matter what gear we would buy him, it was gone within two hours. Lo and behold he was trashing them, not even selling them. He thought that since his gear was broken, it had to be “thrown away”.

  • doing battle of darrowshire, all of the lead up quests alone or in pairs with other people, then going into undercity and gathering 20 or so people who all had it sitting in their quest logs for who knows how long, I think we got another 10 on the way there. Such a great quest line with an epic ending.

  • my most triumphant memory is killing lord Valathak for the end of the dungeon 2 quests. My guild didn’t raid, so a few of us had done the quests, and every time we went through UBRS we’d try him for an hour or so, but eventually the group would disperse.

  • Good times. I’m not much for rose-tinted glasses, but I miss elite mobs/quests : / Very sad to hear that they’re being removed from Outlands and Northrend the way they were in Azeroth.

  • We cleared the place, then started working on him. We wiped to Valathak until all the trash re-spawned, but we weren’t giving up. We cleared the trash again, and 3 or 4 pulls later downed him. Nobody in the group had any gear from molten core or higher, it was all dungeon and quest gear, it was an amazing feeling.

  • Opening of the Gates of Ahn’Qiraji. So many people. Kiting Doomlord Kazzak to Stormwind. So many corpses. Having my pet get the living bomb off of Baron Geddon, and then using it to blow up the AH in Ironforge.. weekly.

  • Taking the flightpath from Rutheran Village to Auberdine for the first time. It was the first flightpath you could take as a Night Elf; the world seemed so large back then. Spreading the ZG Hakkar cursed blood throughout towns. Was a glorious ~24 hours.

  • Getting Tribute to Insanity while it was current content. Was crazy hard at the time. Exiting Teldrassil via the huge waterfall. Early Vanilla, no one knew how to get out and into Rutheran. So… jump off the water fall, die, run back, rez, repeat until you hit the water, then swim all the way around. Good times.

  • getting my lvl 60 epic ground mount.. and promptly turning it in a bit later for one of the armored ones. Sigh. Killing Molten Core Ragnaros for the first time. Wiped on it for months. It’s the only time I ever felt like I “beat” WoW.

  • Completing the Epic Hunter and Priest quests, and the Scepter of the Shifting Sands quest. Nothing in the game compares to those; not even the Dragonwrath Nexus soloing. one of the things that most people didn’t know though is that the naga in the isles of quel’danas were humanoids, could be infected just like anything else, and they were many many many of them near the shore. So I would infect the entire shore with the disease, and it would get so bad that people would have to make small groups/raids to kill me and my zombie hoard just to do dailies.

  • I’ve been playing this toon since release and he’s always been my main. My fondest memories were not so much in-game but kind of meta. When Wrath of the Lich King was released I was absolutely stoked. I had a decent guild, some good friends, and good groups and I was ready to finally break through some of the stumbling points we had during BC raiding. Having played WC3 & The Frozen Throne I had been salivating at the chance to take down Arthas.

  • Pulling Lord Kazzak to Stormwind on my friends NE hunter… I feel dirty just mentioning I played an alliance character at some point…

  • one of the things that most people didn’t know though is that the naga in the isles of quel’danas were humanoids, could be infected just like anything else, and they were many many many of them near the shore. So I would infect the entire shore with the disease, and it would get so bad that people would have to make small groups/raids to kill me and my zombie hoard just to do dailies.

  • Cata hit (a lot of guild shenanigans later causing some collapse, reforming, and collapse) I tanked (along with a good buddy of mine) my guild’s first and only Arthas kill after months of just getting hammered. After that, I felt a giant sigh of relief wash over me. Everything I wanted to accomplish in-game had happened. I’d tanked (and led) every first kill for my guild and I got to take down the one creep I’d always wanted too. Everything after that would be gravy. And it has.

  • shattrath got so bad nobody could stand on the ground or else they would almost instantly be a zombie. infecting the cluster of shattard sun guards in shatt was the greatest thing ever.

  • The first time my guild downed the Lich King is a real highlight. Yes, we did it at 85, but there were only eight of us, our gear sucked (this we before even 4.1, so few epics to be seen), and most of us had never seen the fight before, so it was still pretty challenging.

  • I had been playing the game for about 6 months and been in the same guild, i didnt really click with anyone and just did my own thing. Well one day out on a quest i met someone else doing the same quest that asked if i needed help, i said sure and i had the most fun doing this quest with him and a couple of his guildmates that they asked me to join there guild.

  • Starting an orc hunter and taking prob 6 months to get him to lvl 40 cause every night wen the world defence channel came alive withs xrds under attk i was always defending it.

  • raiding astranaar in retaliation. Then rolling a holy priest just after bc was released and finally realising tht nothing beats healing horde.

  • I started playing three months before Cata so I haven’t been playing as long as the other veteran players, but one of my fondest memories was working together with 7 fellow guildies and completing Tempest Keep. We had a good time working together even though all of us died at least three times before defeating Kael’thas.

  • Back when city invasions were near impossible and in the day of dishonorable kills, on the server Akama nearly every guild on Horde created a mass move to invade Ironforge. Several guilds had themselves 2 40-man raids and even awarded DKP to participants, leading to a mass-up at Kargath that numbered in the several hundreds of players.

  • Our guild leader had to go to bed, but we decided to give it one final go. We make it to phase two, and people start to die again. But we don’t want to give up, so we scurry away from the spreading defile and keep fighting. I go down. Our resto druid, the last healer left alive after my fall, battle rezes me moments before dying herself. I struggle to heal the handful of people left alive, but I’m OOM. We somehow make to phase three, and I get eaten by Frostmourne. Somehow, the group survives without heals until I get spit out.

  • A massive wall of Horde hit Ironforge… and then we discovered that the first WoW servers could not handle it. While a few were able to stay in Ironforge and kill the faction leaders, most players were disconnected as soon as battle broke out and forcefully teleported to random locations on different continents, I presume by the GMs.

  • I remember the long treacherous run to Booty Bay back when you didn’t get a mount till 40. So many long walks. So many days and hours of straight dungeon grinding for blues, if you could get a group together. Months of FR gear preperation for MC. 15 minutes of planning just to organize 40 people to down a boss or wipe. Finding the Kroll blade on a random mob in WPL and selling it for 600G and thinking I was rich. Having over 100g for some was rich. Having an epic was truly epic. No give me’s. RAG Down!

  • I was in the Barrens with one of my first toons and asked for advice on a quest. Between all the Chuck Norris jokes and insults going around another player answered my question. I later met this player at the xroads and she gave me a gold piece! That’s right a whole gold piece!!! I couldnt believe she was so generous lol. Anyhow I wound up friending her and her husband and kept in touch until I started playing on a different realm.

  • One of my best memories was playing my level 20 Forsaken warrior in vanilla he was the bomb, with my 5/3/3 talent spec, the “Scout” title and 1 gold to my name. Good times.

  • Finally killing Arthas and jumping into 25 man Heroics like a boss. Getting an average Ilvl of 274 and being one of the most geared warriors on my server. Having 100% armor penetration, passive and just wrecking battlegrounds in my PVE gear. Being in a successful 25 man raiding guild.

  • when the AQ gates were opened was awesome. Unfortunately the server crashed due to the high volume of people in Silithus. Also, I remember doing some of the AQ scepter quest. Fighting Maws and Eranikus in moonglade was awesome. I wish they didnt remove that questline 🙁

  • I can honestly say the best moment for me was flying from Rut’theran Village to Darkshore for the first time in 2005. It really felt like something special flying over the water, seeing the light house and watching the ship sail under me. That was the point that the “adventure” really began.

  • ZG first came out and people were spreading corrupted blood plague from Hakkar to all of the NPCs. It was so so so annoying but at the same time hilarious seeing all of the dead bodies in Ironforge.

  • For me, the most epic (and therefore my favorite) moment in Wow was a halaa battle. i have posted it several times before. I am too busy to look it up now. It was a truely epic battle with ever-changing tides of war as more and more people showed up to bosst both sides. Search it if you are interested.

  • It was about a month before TBC was to be released and we were working our butts off trying to clear the original Naxx40 (Guild – Dark Nemesis (Bloodhoof)). We managed 8 bosses down before TBC, and it was some of the funnest times I’ve ever had in this game. 40 man raiding was epic, and I was sad when the model went to 25/10.

  • Stepping through the Dark Portal for the first time after BC was released was amazing. The scenery was beautiful. The thing that sticks out most was seeing Rags for the first time in Molten Core. My first kill of him was a 6 hour full clear that ended at 4am my time.

  • I came across Eversong Woods, the belf starting area. I though I’d have a little fun and torment the newbs there, so I went to the place right after the starting island and started killing everyone there. A bunch of lowbies got on their mains and we had a bunch of WPvP. I invited my rogue friend to come as well, and we eventually captured the place, as in all the horde left and didn’t come back while we were around.
