Did your first character become your main?
I started (in closed beta) as an Undead Mage. Then when the game launched I decided to play an Undead Warrior instead, raided MC for a bit and got tired of it. I decided that the warrior playstyle at the time wasn't for me, so I leveled a Mage and raided with that instead. I leveled a 2 Handed enhancement shaman after that, for fun.
TBC came out and I'd not played a paladin before, so I (regrettably) rolled a BE paladin. After hitting lvl 70 I found a raid group as a healer. I raided once with an ele shaman named Wolfspirits. He inspired me to try my shaman again, so I picked him back up, geared him ele and Nohorns here has been my main ever since.
It took me a long time to really find the class / spec that best fit my playstyle, but I'm happy that I hopped around, made alts, and kept my mind open to finding the right fit.
I've had issues during a couple of expansions where guilds didn't want a Holy Paladin and so an alt got to see more content, but whenever they wanted to find me I was generally on Solaria.
My first character was a Dwarf hunter that in my newbie confusion couple with the holiday event that has you running for coins of ancestry all over the place. ended up being repeat ganked by level ?? dinos in arathi and as far as I know is still a ghost in the graveyard there. LOL.
After rerolling I found out about things like boats and the tram and the hearthstone and did much better. :)
She has always been and probably always will be my main. She's also my only character above 70. I love making alts, but they always seem to fizzle out before even hitting Outlands.
I've also never changed her hair or horns. She is just as she was on the character selection screen.
It doesn't feel the same though, I even created a dwarf warrior with the same old name and everything just for nastalgia.
I still have my undead mage and I do consider her one of my main horde toons, but now with account wide achievements, the lines are a little blurred. When I realized my heart was better suited for tanking/healing, I made a blood elf priest, that took over a lot of my progression on horde side, but I am finding at the moment, her shadow spec is actually much easier for me than actual healing, so for that reason, my original toon, might become a more dominant force again soon, given that dps has become somewhat easier this expansion, as getting a lot more help with advice on rotations etc in-game, which you never got before.
It's also the fact that frost was the spec of my choice as I just loved having my water elemental follow me around, but in cata that wasn't really viable for pve, but now it has become actually quite useful for pve, not just pvp, which is going to make my original toon much stronger. It is possible she will become a "main" again, but only time will tell.
After that I actually ended up playing a Hunter for a long while and that's when I first started raiding, then I got tired of her.
Next was my druid, I leveled her and mainly was a bear but played resto for a little bit as well. While "maining" as my druid I deleted and leveled a new Deathknight and learned to play her this time around.
Continued maining as my Druid but then leveled a couple more toons, a Priest and a Pally. Unfortunately, people were mainly wanting me to heal all the time now and didn't like healing on my bear so I switched mains again, to a Shaman.
Actually Played her the mostly, throughout the entire last Tier of Wrath and up to Firelands in Cata. At this point the guild I was in need of tanks again and had been enjoying tanking on my Deathknight. So I switched to her and played her throughout the rest of Firelands.
Near the beginning of DS we had many guildies leaving and was now needing almost every role. This time I decided to try a pure again and begin playing a Rogue and finished Cata with her.
Now, we are at Mists and I was going to play my Deathknight again. However, I found out the new guild I was in didn't need tanks so I decided I wanted to play something I haven't in a long while. Thus, I am now back to my Warlock. :)
This is also why I just post on this toon instead of my "main". Because I have no idea who my main will be at the time. >.> Sorry for the long read as well. <.<
