Why did you start playing Warcraft?
My husband and I were looking for a game to play I saw WoW and it took me ages to get him to give it a go, it was new out and I had been hearing good reviews, so we have been there from the beginning.. well a few months in.
What was the first ever character you rolled?
Her name was Goldenarrow and she was a Night Elf hunter, boy did I feel an achievement getting to 40 and managing to have enough gold to get my mount.
Which factors determined your faction choice in game?
My husband, we originally chose Alliance I think it was because he liked the Dwarves, then we switched to Horde we do not have a set affinity to one faction or the other we enjoy playing both equally.
What has been your most memorable moment in Warcraft and why?
I have many, One of them was completing the story lines in Northrend, I cannot remember the name of it but it involved the Gates the Lich king and fighting in Undercity. Another was the story-line involving the dying man (where all the whelps are) you try to save him but cannot and he gets lifted up by the Narruu, that brought a tear to my especially after realising it was put there to honor someone who had died. And of course earning my Dreadsteed of Xoroth, they should never have got rid of that quest it should have been optional, and the quest for swift flight on my druid although the warlock mount quest was epic and amazing.
What is your favourite aspect of the game and has this always been the case?
I enjoy PvE, grouping questing and dungeons even the odd bit of PvP now there is the raid finder I will occasionally potter around in there but I do not play to raid I play to enjoy my time there and immerse myself in fantasy for a while. I also really enjoy RP.
Do you have an area in game that you always return to?
I really enjoy Northrend and my fondest memories are from there, I first got into heroics there completing them all I thoroughly fell in love with the story and the areas and Northrend feels like home to me… if only I could build a ingame home there and be happy I would
How long have you /played and has that been continuous?
I have played for about 9 and 3/4 years my time has been on and off but I always return.
Admit it: do you read quest text or not?
I used to especially after cataclysm and it all changed, if I have done it a few times then I tend not to.
Are there any regrets from your time in game?
The only regret I have is I did not stick to a main, even after all this time I still have trouble with mains… I did however find my original warlock whom I did the dread-steed quest on sitting at 71 considering I have 2 warlocks at 90 re rolled this seems sad so I will be leveling her. If i had a main i think of all the achievements I could have obtained.
10. What effect has Warcraft had on your life outside gaming?
My sister started playing so it became a family affair, my sister then found her current boyfriend through wow so left England and moved all the way to Scotland to be together, My husband and I spent many happy hours playing together.
