I don't know how. I don't know why. But I have done it, finally, I have succumbed to the beast. Yes that's right ladies and gentlemen: I am playing World of Warcraft!!
Actually, I do know how. It all started with a dream. I was an undead warlock. And... that's about it. But that dream stuck with me! And it bugged me for weeks and weeks, and I couldn't stand it until I downloaded the trial and I played that undead warlock I so dreamed about.
Little did I know... how fun WoW is! And really, that is why I am playing now and probably will continue to play (remember though, I can't stay in one place long nor am I a one MMO man) for the foreseeable future.
That is the biggest reason why I have now chosen WoW over EQ2: it's simply more fun. I like how my characters move and control, I love the style and the color. I honestly never ever thought I could enjoy WoW and I must admit that I have been very judgmental about the game, without having actually tried it.
There he is, my undead warlock.
Good thing I don't have any nasal functionality left, so I can't smell this guy.Summoning my first minion.
Sadly however, my all time favourite guild the New Outriders plays alliance. And this game is just so much more fun with some reliable and friendly people, so I made a night elf to join them. (I actually have made multiple night elfs, so don't freak out if you see her hair change or something, but in the end I stuck with one)
Not unique to WoW, but still cool, is some great looking armor. Nice tentacle staff buddy! (It wiggles hehe, it's awesome)Here you can see Cownose my human mage. Aint' she somethin? I like her, but anyways, look at this outhouse! Now that is hilarious. I always wondered how these virtual characters did their business, finally we have a reasonable explanation.
Like any good MMO, WoW has castles. Lots of castles. Ok probably not as many as Dark Age of Camelot but yeah they are around.Back in the Night Elf lands, I ran into this ent guy. Looking good! I like that color.I'm not sure if I'm supposed to bathe in here, I think this waters are sacred or something. Oh well.These spiders are coool!
Just to check out their starting area, I made a troll. Needless to say, I like it!
Undead horse mount, good stuff, good stuff.A sexy blood elf doing her thing.
These imps are pretty cool. In the end the warlock class was not my cup of tea, but they have style in what they can summon.
And finally, I just love this picture of the night elf starting area. It really gives you a good impression of what the forest is like and the color.
