Early Memories

I was reading a guildies blog, The Tank Hunter, and he had a great post entitled Memories. I thought I would do a similar blog with my own wow memories. 

I remember my husband played wow for a couple months before I decided to play. He kept trying to get me to play, but I always put it off. I kept watching him do dungeons with his guild Guardians to the Throne, and I decided it looked pretty fun. He got me a trial account and I made Lunas. She was my first character and my favorite. I haven't found anything yet that has beaten playing a druid. 

I remember my first contact I had with Eternity Matters, I was lvling up in Duskwood when a priest named Nathaniel was advertising in general chat about a christian guild. At first I just ignored it, but then I saw people in general chat making fun of him because he was a 'priest' promoting a christian guild. I stood up for him in chat and he whispered me. I politely turned down his offer to join, but added him as a friend. We were also watching a guild fight one of the dragons of nightmare in the center of duskwood. That was pretty fun. :) Later on we had to quit playing wow due to a tighter budget and when we reactived our accounts the guild we were in transfered servers. That's when I remembered the preist and his offer, and this time I accepted. 

I have some very fond memories of going into Strat and trying to get Firager his pants. Schnookms his gorilla tanked for us because no one at the time tanked. Poor Firager never got his pants but we had some good times :)

My first epic was from dungeon set one, I don't remember which part of it, but I was VERY excited. Pre BC getting an epic was a lot harder to get than it is now.

In BC I had my first experiences as a tank. Scary huh? Again, I can't remember the very first time, but I was pretty much the only tank in the guild. I was a very busy bear. By me becoming tank I was able to help us get better gear and let us get further in the game. Now when I try to tank I feel unneeded. We have many great tanks now. :)

My first experiences with kara were with a guild called Order of Nightwolves. Unfortuantely my husband and I left Eternity Matters for a short period of time and joined the Nightwolves. They were a wonderful guild, very progressive. They were casual/raiding. They didn't make you raid, only required you to have the gear to support it. I helped tank Maiden, but unfortuantely we didn't get her down. They were also new to kara, so it took some time to get the fight down. Later on we joined EM again and shared with them about casual/raiding and they decided to try that approach, and it has worked out very well for them :)
