Let me start off by saying that I started playing WoW on literally the 1st day of January 2008. My first toon was a Night Elf Hunter called Twellyn, and my first ever in-game friend was a Night Elf warrior called Kaellron. I deleted that hunter at level 17, and don't have much to tell about him.
I've had this Warlock since February 2008 and is my oldest character, and 1 of 3 remaining from The Burning Crusade. Akavir has been in MANY guilds in the last 4 years and here is a list off the top of my head in order, maybe you've heard of:
<The Sunwell Covenant> 3/2008 - 3/2008
with: Keavy, Adramir
I left them dishonorably after a guild mate made a false claim to the GM about me. They have since moved to Moonguard and are still active to this day.
<Crazy Canucks> 4/2008 - 12/2008
with: Necrosomatic, Tynian, Thelesseron, Janosindra, Demastic, Soprersot
The guild was renamed <House of Darkness> in August of 2008, after Zangwen from <Deaths Handicap> reported our guild name for not being RP enough. Tynian quit playing, GM Necrosomatic quit WoW soon after hitting 80 when WotLK released, Demastic became GM, but the guild folded in January of 2009. To this day it has remained my best guild experience ever and I will never forget them.
<Decimate the Weak> 1/2009 - 4/2009
A very mature hubby/wife guild, and the guild I was in when Akavir hit level 80. A good guild experience, but the active top tier of members stopped logging in, and it became a ghost town.
<Lords of War> 4/2009 - 11/29/09
with: Gulthrak, Fightem, Twistokane, Mookin.....etc
I was introduced to <Lords of War> by my IRL bud, Mookin. It was a guild with fun games and events, though I was more of an outcast, and never felt I was a part of it. I was online on 11/29/09 when it collapsed and literally 100 people /gquit.
<Shadows of Lords> 11/30/2009 - 12/2009
An attempt to revive Lords of war, but it never took off, and I took a 5-month hiatus from the game.
The hiatus was due in part to changes in the game. Patch 3.2.2 was the first ever hit I took from Blizzard that shook my faith, by making Onyxia, my favorite classic, into a level 80 raid. Patch 3.3 sealed the deal, by introducing cross-realm dungeons. This new feature literally took the fun away from the game for me and my willingness to play the game depressed like air from a tire.
I returned in 5/2010, and played around on other servers, like Darrowmere, Balnazzar and Draka. I quit playing Akavir, and started leveling one of my remaining Burning Crusade characters, Silverhoof, a Tauren druid. He was on Balnazzar, but I brought him to Sentinels and gave him a race change into a troll when able and named him Jinzuma. Then Cataclysm happened, and I quit the game indefinitely on 12/26/10, and I have scantly been back since, but I look forward to Mists of Pandaria and want to return.
It is so weird to write and reflect on some of the people and guilds I've been in, who are no longer here, even though they aren't dead IRL (well some of them could but let's hope not) I feel like Captain Picard at the end of the Star Trek TNG episode "The Inner Light". If you've seen it, you'll know what I'm talking about. *pulls out his tin whistle*
So I'd like to hear from others on here, their history on Sentinels, their memories, old friends and guilds and what made this realm a great place to be?
