Torran's Nostalgia Thread

Hello Azshara,

Most of you don't know me, but I have been playing here since January of 06 and in that time I've gone from a totally solo player to a semi-hardcore raider, to a fairly casual guildie and had the opportunity to play with those who I would call the server's finest.

Anyways, the point is that in that time I've habitually taken screenshots of random events that seemed noteworthy so when an in-game friend asked me about an event that happened years ago I found myself going through this massive archive of images to dig it up. After having quickly looked over them I wanted to upload just a few from my experience on Azshara.

What would you guys consider to be your most memorable in-game event while playing on Azshara?

07/29/06 - Score screen of a vanilla AV - check out that elapsed time (we called that a short one back in the day). This was an I'm-so-great shot at the time (Rinth is my first char), but I like all those names that we don't see any more.

10/29/06 - In what must have been a massive faction-wide coordination effort, the horde raids Stormwind, Ironforge, and Darnassus. This was not just one guild's worth of horde - the streets were literally jammed and I think this ultimately brought the server down. I lived because I was so laggy I couldn't successfully flag myself for PvP.

11/19/06 - An old-school vanilla Onyxia raid. I had to throw this in because its so iconic of WoW's good old days.

03/12/07 - Torran, my second character, at level 1. Nothing to see here, unless you're me.

09/28/08 - Azshara's first successful alliance bear run. This was the group's first run together and we would go on to get 5 mounts total before the WotLK prepatch hit and took it away. The winners (in order) were: Nikram, Animals, Vaj, Noralaane, and Inexorus.

01/18/09 - Naxx10 run with our regular group: Iamgandhi, who was doing this for the first time, was convinced by Vaija that when the monkey in the purple sphere appeared he had to follow it and aoe; Chrissie help out by cooking up some fake DBM warnings. This would be funnier if I had video.

08/06/09 - Asmodeus, a fellow tank, and I would always introduce the other as the server's second best tank. :)

11/03/09 - I'm not proud of it, but sitting on the bank steps with Jachyra has made up a large portion of my WoW time. :)

HI TORRAN AND CHRISSIE AND SENNY!

I miss you guys! Or as the Russians say, "In time of Great Stalin my brother was sent to gulag, but communists gave us loaf of bread."

I'm surprised the time you finally got the tanking trinket from Heroic MGT wasn't on the list. Hahaha. I remember running that with you every single day back in TBC. (Luongo - used to be Enhancement Shaman)

We used to spend houuuurs trying to find a healer to come with us.
