“How was your 2008?” A simple question asked by Samodean of Hardcore Casual. Granted I am a tad bit late on replying, the post had gotten me into thinking more about my past years experiences. I realized 2008 had ups and downs but overall still provided the fun aspect of WoW for me. (Obviously since I’m still playing..)
At the beginning of 2008, my only real “main” for me was my mage, Topz. I have been playing a mage since Pre-Tbc and the class always will probably attract me. I never took burning crusade seriously on my mage. I’d do dailies, try to get a Heroic Magister’s Terrace group for a chance at the mount / pet and generally go play an alt or log out when that was finished. Pretty boring WoW time, I jumped across alts and couldn’t decide what to do to make the game more enjoyable. After a few months of accomplishing mostly nothing, there was a time where I quit Wow.
I stopped playing for a couple months and was trying out some other MMO’s. None of them had made enough of an impact on me to post them here now, wouldn’t want anyone looking at those horrible games -twitch-. I eventually got back into wow, trying to pvp on my mage while leveling alts. An amazing part about 2008 is that, I actually managed to get another character to 70. (This was amazing for me) I started playing my hunter in August, and had hit 70 sometime early October. This was pretty accomplishing for me (/Grin?) I’ve never not liked hunters, so having one of my own was exciting. I played this character a lot more seriously than my mage at the time. I did heroics, got gear for karazahn did Tier 4 content. (Mags/Kara/Gruul/Za). Raiding was really fun to finally try and do. I wish I could have gotten farther but I did wait really long to even begin trying.
The pet aspect of my hunter is what draws me in so much to the class. I planned out all my stable slots before even getting level capped and well I love my hunter. (:
The best part of 2008 by far had to have been getting my hunter to 70, and enjoying the game with it. My hunter is now a “Scribe” and a viable character for me to play when I feel like shooting people …/cackle 0.o
(I didn’t level my priest until this year…nothing to post about that character in this D:)
