Did your first character become your main?
11/08/2012 09:25 AMPosted by WolfmotherJust curious as to how many people's first characters (when I say first character, I mean the first character that you got out of the starting zone) became their mains and still are their mains? This was my first character, I'm getting bored to tears with him because he's getting stale, and am thinking about maining a new character. Can't stand the thought of lettin' ol' Wolfy go though :( my first flying mount, first healer, first heroic, first level capped character, first character through the delicious northrend.. the list goes on to the point where it would feel awkward for him to not be my "main"
Yes, and no... My first character was made on the wrong realm. I had started playing WoW to play with a couple of RL friends, one of which gave me vague instructions regarding the name of the server I should join to be able to play with them... I made an Orc hunter on the original realm, and then found out about the wrong server issue, and recreated this mage on the correct server... Since then, he has, and will always be, my main, and favorite character.
Started as a Paladin. Ding'd 60 and realized my end game position was not what I wanted. Decided to try a Warrior and fell in love. Played my Warrior throughout most of Vanilla before creating a Rogue for PvP(city ganking was very appealing) Once BC dropped, I stuck with the Rogue and haven't looked back.
I can't say I have a main - I have too many alts that at one time or another I'll play more than the others for a spell before switching again.
When I first started playing WoW in vanilla, naturally I was brought in by a group of friends that wanted me to raid with them. I've always been the kind of person to adapt to a group so I asked them what they needed. That was my first mistake.
Oh, we need a healer, they said! So I poked around and thought Discipline Priests looked kind of cool, so that's what I started with. No one really had time to help me level, despite the promises of "Oh, we'll get you to 60 in no time!" so I got to around level 27 or so with no help. I was actually pretty proud of that accomplishment at the time. >>
Then, someone hit me up and said "You know, we've filled in our healers recently, but we could really use a tank!" Okay, I guess... I didn't get too far, I can change what I'm leveling. I then rolled a warrior. I had a lot of fun leveling as Arms, and now that you could change your spec, I didn't feel like I had to level as something sub-optimal. I got really into PvP and had a 3rd rank title on a level 47 character... It was kind of ridiculous. But, I spent so much time not leveling that I wasn't going to hit 60 before Burning Crusade came out.
And at that point, I was approached yet again. "You know, since Horde are getting Paladins, we're really going to need a few of them..."
ALRIGHT, ALREADY. FINE. ONE MORE TIME.
I never regretted the decision though. This guy has been my favorite character, and probably always will be. He has a personality as much as a rich history. Right now, though, he's taking a break. My main is currently my Death Knight. I'll come back to being a Paladin at some point, I'm sure. But I've learned throughout my years in WoW that sticking yourself to just one main character is a disservice to the rich gameplay that each individual class offers.
