Your first class and why?!
Unfortunately i fell in love with my shaman (ele) and have been trying way too hard in pvp ever since. I am too scared to roll a mage or warlock because i fear i will never come back to my ele shaman.
At that time (2007), I didn't know about "burst damage" classes, but I really didn't enjoy playing with a warlock and it's dots.
Then I made a druid. Kinda enjoyed it, but really wasn't my kind of gameplay.
So, when I started playing again last year (early 2011), I decided to create this mage.
My all favorite class ever.
To be honest, I've always played caster classes in every RPG game: Diablo 1, Diablo 2, Neverwinter Nights, Dungeon Siege (I know, I had to control 3 chars, but the casters were my favorite), WoW (warlock, first char) etc.
I'd still be playing with my warlock (since it's destruction talent tree is based on bursts and dots), but I think I like all this fire/frost/arcane thing too much. :D
The mage was fun and I got to experience a little bit of the game since I didn't even know about it until my brother came over to my house and played on his computer.
I got my own account on September 2010 and tried out the warlock as my very first character on it but the class just didn't feel right to me. Then, I rerolled a night elf hunter during my trial account and never looked back. Shooting enemies from a distance while letting your pet deal damage up close was fun.
I enjoy experimenting with different classes so I am still trying to figure out my preferred play-style. So far, healing with my paladin has been fun and leveling this rogue is interesting too.
I made a shadow priest and it was the coolest thing ever. In vanilla wow shadow priests and feral druids were the red-headed step children of blizzard and by level 40 I got sick of being told to make a warlock if I wanted to dps and that priests should heal.
I was new enough at the game so I listened and made this lock that has been my favorite toon for over 6 years.
Granted, I'm not terribly happy with the state of warlocks right now, but locks will always have a special place in my heart.
I found it appealing to wield two weapons, hide in the shadows, and, greatest of all, be dead, and not dead at the same time. Rogues seemed uber cool, and my name was just me hitting random name generator and picking out the first 2 letters from different names, writing them down, and combining them.
De - Ca - Ez .
Sounds like an undead rogue to me.
I eventually leveled seven toons to 60, a Rogue... just to pick locks (he was terribad till after Mid BC), Warrior (tanks were in Shortage!), mage (Gotta have water and the Dire Maul quest to get it was awesome!), Warlock, the Felsteed quest was awesome!, Priest (Healing Strat and Scholo was fun!). Then... I got them all to exalted in AV, because the mounts in AV were only 640g instead of the 1000g if you wanted to buy them from the regular vendor.
Yes, I was the Prot Tank in AV, Yes, I was that Rogue in AV that just sapped people trying to back cap (Knowning damned well that a 4 year old duel wielding wet paper sacks would pwn me).
I honestly didnt "get" my shaman till I was in Nagrand in BC, I had a guild shaman walk up to me and watch me kill things for a bit, you know in Enhancement Spec with 1.6 speed blue axes or daggers, and laughed at me and gave me a green 2.6 speed weapon and linked me the damage meters.
Just reading this thread prompted me to look up the video and give it another watch. I’m just as captivated by it now as I was then.
My druid is the first toon I got to cap and have stuck with him since. Sometimes I hate druids, sometimes I love them. He's grown a part of me.
