The reason you started playing WoW. The most awesome event you where part of in WoW. A open world pvp battle. A insane close Raid boss battle. Your favorite WoW lore story. An epic guild event from the past. A story about your favorite place in WoW. A story about friendship.
Or what have you.
One of my recent favorite stories is, that i created a Ally toon, lvled him to lvl 5 and than made my way down to Booty Bay (up from Gnomergan) by feet just to talk with the Nr. 1 Seller of our Realm. (That is still Essence btw.). God i love Booty Bay. Its one of my favorite places in WoW period.
I've got several things to list! The most Epic would be on my Hunter (Tentzu, called Zebrahoove when it was Alliance) when we were doing SoO 10 man Normal with the guild, we were were close to wiping, with 9 people dead, last man standing was our Discipline priest VS Thok at 3% health. The TeamSpeak was hardly bearable because 9 people yelling because it was so close AND HE KILLED HIM.
Another memory which is probably some of the most fun I've ever done was in Wrath of the Lich King. I played a Rogue with my brother, we both went with Combat spec, and gear to fully optimize a Killing Spree. We stealthed in arenas, and we both focused the squishiest target and popped Killing Spree right away. If we were lucky we'd kill him with that combo, if not we'd lose the fight. It was extremely risky, but amazingly fun! As an off-note we made it to 1800 Rating 2v2 with probably the worst but most fun combo ever.
And to cover your last one; "Story about friendship", when I was still a noob to WoW; I only played with a 7 day trial. There was this random dude that invited me to a party, as well as some other person, who also happened to be a trial account. The person who invited us left the party after a while, but we continued to be in the party, and we quested for a bit, chatted, and had a nice time together. We added eachother to friendlist so that we could whisper eachother. We even planned on going to a city to find people that could invite us to a party so we could do quests together, even if it took us hours! That's my fondest memory of my noob days. Sadly we never met again after the trial ended. )': *Wipes tear*
Back when I first started WoW, in 5.2, my first character was a blood elf Warrior* named 'Boxingdave' - please don't ask about the name, even I don't know why I called him that... I basically spent most of my time running around Eversong woods, killing dragonhawks and doing the occasional quest every now and then. Somehow, I got to level 20 doing that... somehow. I think I must have visited ghostlands a bit as well. Anyhow, I remember dinging 20 in Eversong, getting super excited at this 'massive accomplishment', and legit threw a small party in game. I bought some food and drink from vendors, found a nice spot, and /danced away, tasting in game food and drink every now and then.
I know, such a fun life I lead.
Moving on... It was around this level that I decided to learn mining. For some reason. I remember when I first saw some copper ore, my thoughts were 'OMG, they must be soooo rare! I gotta hurry to it, otherwise someone will steal this precious ore from me!' For some reason I had thought that dozens of people would be running around in search for the oh so 'rare' copper ore.
A couple weeks later, after venturing into - and exploring all of - Silvermoon city, I came across the Orb of Translocation, in the Sunfury spire - that orb that teleports you to Undercity. After thinking long and hard about it, I put all my valuable items - mostly copper ore - into the bank, equipped my best gear, and clicked on the orb. I was so tense and nervous while the loading bar filled up, just waiting for my character to appear in whatever this place would be. As soon as I appeared in the Ruins of Lordaeron, I froze solid. I looked around using the camera, my character glued to the spot where he landed. I was so scared of that place, with its creepy music and creepier atmosphere, that I didn't dare move.
Naturally, using my very limited MMO knowledge (WoW was my first) I concluded this dark and scary place must be a 'Dungeon'. Terrified I would be killed because it would be too hard for me, I clicked on the orb and went back to Silvermoon, never to return for at least a couple more weeks.
Fun fact: the first real dungeon that I ended up in was Scarlet Monastery, and I died on the first trash pull. Nearly in tears, I debated leaving the group as 'they must hate me already'. Instead, I was rezzed by the healer, continued on, and managed to survive the rest of the dungeon.
Back in the glorious Eversong woods, I'd seen a lot of people running around with a dragonhawk pet that would attack for them. Thinking that I, a warrior, should get one of these pets, I looked around fairbreeze village for any clues as to how to get one. Eventually, I came across a vendor that sold dragonhawk companion pets, and I thought these were the ones I needed. I saved up my money, killing so many mobs just for their copper, I finally ended up with the 45 silver I needed (or 50, I forget the actual number) After buying the pet, I summoned it, and tried all manner of things to get it to attack: click the pet, then the mob; click the pet, click one of my attacks, click the mob; and so it went on. Eventually I googled it and was sad I didn't make a hunter in the first place.
My last tale of silly new mistakes, lies within Orgrimmar. I (finally) got up the courage to return to Undercity, and then saw the zeppelin tower. Of course, I tried out all the zeppelins, ending up in northrend getting lost, then getting killed by level 30 mobs in Stranglethorn, and finally getting lost in Orgrimmar. In Orgrimmar, I came across garrosh hellscream, who gave me a quest to go to ragefire chasm. I found the place eventually, and tried to solo it. Suffice to say, that did not end well.
Wow, okay, sorry for the wall of text, I didn't realise I had so many small tales of my stupid mistakes of starting WoW. Apologies.
*Don't tell anyone, but my first character was really a human mage whom I deleted after getting lost in northshire. Shhh!
