I remember when I hit the barrens for the first time and accidentally found the Crossroads. It was there that I witnessed a battle of epic proportions as Borrus (then a Tauren hunter) in his Season 1 gear fended off two gnome mages and a night elf druid. That sight alone inspired me to level my hunter (Vax) and make him my main for all of BC and Wrath.
Some great memories overall. Too many to list here.
I'll never forget raiding with Agurno and Crustaceo in <Drums of War> and <Thanatos>. Leveling up with Hellsfate, Kichi, Evanescently, Necropheliac (later changed to Liesandtruth), Kildraad, Formargo and many others.
I'll never forget running Zul'Aman with Emg and Wodinaz (the latter inspiring me to make this druid) or raiding Karazhan, Gruul and Magtheridon with <Shadow of Intent>. Nor shall I forget joining <Veterans of the Phoenix> for the first time, raiding Mount Hyjal, Tempest Keep and SSC with Arcticon and Bartley.
I won't forget running dungeons with powerhouse players like Malybean and Jellibean, and the amazing trio of Annzi, Kallahan and Grazzt.
And then Wrath came out, and we all rushed to level 80. I won't forget joining <Team Fail> and raiding Naxxramas for months and months. I won't forget Stoli's magnificent tanking, Arcticon's 'no nonsense' leadership, Vanny's horrible internet connection, Terronega's untouchable DPS and Iammika being overly protective of Frizy for some reason. All fond memories.
I won't forget raiding Ulduar and ToGC with <Reagan Smash>. Winning Wintergrasp at 3am with Kichi and her sister Priamsgirl (later changed to Frankkie). I also won't forget raiding with <Armageddon> all throughout my WoW career all those times they needed a sub after meeting Shadowspawns and Bootaka in early Burning Crusade.
I won't forget running old raids and collecting sets of armor with Phlegyas and then finding out Transmogrification would be implemented months later.
And even though Cataclysm seems to have taken many of our old friends away, we've still had a good time. I won't forget raiding with <Wasted Epics> with Painme and Lokki, as brief as it was. Then, most recently, joining <Veterans of the Phoenix> once again for Firelands fun and the long and arduous journey to being 8/8 in Dragon Soul with Wellivan, Klemedia, Pandabearr, Arcticon, Crimznrain (later changed to Chaos), Upnsmoke on his priest and druid, Dwarfeater, Astrida and Hellsfaith on his warlock.
All great memories. A few favorites would probably be raiding with Stoli, Arcticon and Terronega in Naxxramas. Emg and Wodinaz in Zul'Aman. And BGing with Frankkie.
So many friends. Many of them are not listed here. But you are missed.
Looking forward to more great memories in Mists of Pandaria.
