have you ever created a new toon from scartch

That said changes to gold earnings and how cheap everything is from vendors and whatnot really damaged the sense of "I did something". I remember when I got my first gold... that was a good day.
I may have started in Cata but I do remember that very clearly. I thought I was incredibly rich. I told my friend "Dude look! I finally got a whole gold!"
He responded with "Dude, I have 5k."
I was humbled indeed.
I've gone back to my ol' human warrior for MoP though. It's hard to let go of all the old memories and items I've accumulated on this guy. I think I'm stuck with him no matter what lol.

I actually really enjoyed the experience (and challenge!) of starting over from scratch and making entirely new friends along the way. Especially with the advent of the Real ID and Battle Tag integration, it’s also become increasingly easier for me to keep in touch with and group with friends from other realms. :)
Earn that meal ticket!
I'm level 44 or 45 (I've not touched her since shortly before MOP) and with the help of skinning/herbalism I have a nice stash of gold. Unlike when I had to work my rear off for riding/mount money my first go around.

What he said. Since that Key is my main, and I'd say he has accomplished more than my first serious character (and former main), a warlock >o<
I rarely return to my old server nowadays, when I look in the bank savings of my old toons I get sentimental, as well as over how the server went down. A bit sad indeed.
So, I discovered via the forums here that there were a few Horde re-roll guilds that had been started and I joined one on a different server. I created a couple characters and got them to 85, having no heirlooms or gold when I started. It was a bare bones start and I actually had a lot of fun with it.
The only real "challenge" was making gold, which was fun, and before long, I was doing quite well for myself (it's not that hard to do it really, just have to get it jump-started) ... then Mists release came and back to the Alliance I went!
Usually, I'll find myself taking an extended break from WoW, and then when I come back I just don't feel like picking up where I left off.
So I pick a brand new server that I've never been on before, make a brand new toon and go from there. No money, no heirlooms, no help, etc.
It helps me to remember why I love this game so much, and helps me re-learn how to play it.
