I started the game as a warrior having come fresh from FFXI. Deathknights didn't exist yet, so warrior seemed like a good choice. I went tauren, cause I remembered those big taurens in WCIII putting out the hurt with their trees they'd whack at stuff with.
Found that I loved warrior pvp, and hated warrior pve.
Ended up going with a druid, enjoyed healing, played feral pre-1.10 (lol) in pvp cause it was fun and I'm a defiant sorta guy.
By the time BC came around, I was ready for something new. Paladins were a new class (to horde) and BE's were a new race (don't hate me!) so I levelled one up to 70. Tried out this new thing called "arena" - 5v5 - and quickly learned I hated being the center of attention. "Why didn't you dispel my fear? How did you die? Why didn't you heal me??" Yeah - no thx. So I started healing in Kara and spammed FoL till I thought my index finger was going to fall off. Ended up trying ret out (told you - I'm a rebel!) cause I was a BS and had lionheart or whatever it was called back then - the epic bs crated 2h sword.
WotLK came out - and it had special meaning to me. I mean it's the LICH KING man! One does not simply walk into his citadel... Anyway, it also allowed me to make this very fun to play DK! I was a Galk Dark Knight in FFXI, and now I could finally play a melee-caster with a big 2 handed weapon again. I was stoked. So stoked I kept it as my main throughout Cata (a record for me).
But now, sadly, I think I'll be moving on to a Panda Monk. I love the way the DPS is like DK dps in reverse, and the new healing concept (especially melee-healing) is just way too fun to pass up.
What's your story?
