Just to check in in case anyone reads this thread:
Came to Rexxar a few months into Burning Crusade with the remnants of my Classic Guild, Anomaly. I was never a server personality, I didn't pvp, although some might have run across me as the enthusiastic Polymorpher who would gladly run heroics I didn't need merely to have some fun with the good folk of the server.
Outland seemed like a wild frontier then. Yet to my amazement, out ragtag Karazhan team coalesced into a 25 man raiding guild. Compared to the other guilds at the time like Farm Status or The Exiled, we were mediocre at best. Somehow, through sheer persistence we managed to take down Lady Vashj. Yet the WoW of T6 attunement was quite cutthroat, and the Vial caused the loss of a handful of essential raiders, in a scenario paralleled in countless other guilds. Truthfully, I sobbed out loud as I watched Anomaly disintegrate.
I drifted towards the end of BC, first with Unforgiving, then with the Exiled. Prepping for WotLK I resolved to reinvent myself as a paladin healer with lmperium. Imagine my surprise to find myself sitting pretty as the Wrath Ret Pally for one of the server's top guilds! My time with them was short, and I didn't have the deep emotional commitment I had with Anomaly, but I was privileged to raid with (in my experience) such a pleasant and professional group.
Real life intervened before Ulduar hit, and I spent the next year cut of from WoW, and subsequent years playing with RL friends who shared a schedule with me too irregular for raiding. Nonetheless, I am starting a new chapter on a high-pop server, leveling up to witness the inevitable end of this cultural phenomenon of a game . If anyone who knows me from the old days sees this hit me up on the character Qwarazam or Arazam on Area 52.
