My Journey into WoW.

Wark

Animal
Preface

Dear Friends,

I have recently got my hands of a 7 day trial of WoW,

I'm goign to go install it now, and see for myself how it's like, and bring you inside details.

This will be a dangerous journey, but i am willing to take the risk. If i do not come back within 14 days, please, go on without me.

I will be updating my Journey on this post, with screenshots.

So begins my journey, into World of Warcraft.

Here I go.

Unlocking the door

Unlocking the door 2

After many hours of trying to unlock the contents of the "warcraft disk"
I have finally managed it. Am I ready to step throught the door into the new world? No. But I must. I might never be the same after I go. But I must, But I must.

There I was, ready for my adventure, but first I had to create myself. I looked at the two factions. The Alliance, or The Horde, Firstly I looked at the Horde choices.

Should I be the blood-thirsty orc? I glanced at my Orc-Self, ugly, rotting teeth.. no, Orc is not for me.

How about Undead? I'm stunned at the sight. No jaw, no blood, just weak flesh and bare bone. No thank you.

Next is the mighty tauren. Hmm a walking, talking bull? Sound pretty nice. While i think this, my Tauren-Self scratches his back obliviously. Hmm.. lets see what other choices there are...

I take a look at the Alliance side. There I see a Good, Clean-shaven human. Good ole' humans. Boring, and dull.

Moving on is Night Elf, while the females I admit, do look pretty nice... The males... well HUGE ears that stick out left and right, blue beards? Not for me.

Then I take a look at the Dwarfs, a little midget with an axe stares at me, he looks very angry, I quicky move on.

Gnomes? What is a gnome? I asked as I was looking at the "Gnome" section. At first I didnt see anything, but then i slowly moved my head downward. There I saw it. It was the tiniest thing I ever saw, even with his huge hair. I thought about it.. If I were a Gnome how would I open doors? How would I be able to pee in a toilet? No, definatly I'm not going to be a Gnome, I will probably get kicked around by Humans, and face certain death if a Tauren doesen't watch where it's going.

I thought about Tauren, The all mighty Tauren, big and strong. Tauren is perfect for me. How will I go through doors? Nobody knows.

Watch out Gnomes, Warkk the Tauren is coming!
Perfect.

I don't know what I'm goign to face, who I'm going to meet, or what I'm going to do. At this point my Tauren-Self is yawning with bordom, So i shoulden't keep him waiting.

Here I Come World Of Warcraft, Here I Come.

I was standing in the middle of the Tauren village; Camp Narache. I was talking with the Cheif of the vilage and he told me a few stories and sent me on my way. I was stunned. After I left the village I saw trees, mountains, and endless plains of grass.

After participating in the Tauren Great Hunt, getting some animal meat and pelts, I stood at the top of a small hill. The sight is amazing.

Today was a good day, but there shall be many more adventures. I sit under a large pine tree, and quickly fall asleep.

I coulden't write in my log for the last 6 days, I have been ahrd at work training my character. I converted from Warrior to Shaman, after trying out all the classes, I am level 7 now, I made it to the next city after doing quests for the elder Tauren. I am in Bloodhoof Village, I will finish more quests as soon as I can, and mabye someday they will let me in to the Tauren capital of Thunder Bluff.

This may just be me, but I think it would be a kick ass idea:

Imagine if there was a forum set aside for WoW "journals", where WoW players could make entries, explaining their days of WoW, in a role-playing manner.

Well, you could just do it all here, actually, but I thought it might be neater in a special forum :) And perhaps only Special Members and up who play WoW, so no one abuses it, or anything...

Just a thought :D

20 minutes has gone by, i have lost all hope...

On my jorney looking for wark i tripped on a funky looking gnome that gave me a quest, Something with buzzboxes and spiders wasnt really listening to him, Good thing i have my quest log...

Personal note of the day..

Buzzboxes.. Talking to people over a distance? What will the next be, sending invisible letters through the air for others to read at home... Ghee this gnome is demented..

I dunno if i will, probably not just because i dont like paying 15$ a month. But now Tauren are my favorite unit in warcraft.

Ok my trial is almost up, I thought I'd have to leave WoW but then, yesderday, my brother came home:

"Hey Alex, look what I got"

What could it be? I wondered, I quickly ran up stairs to see what he had.

And there I saw it.

"And there i saw it"

Three retail copies of WoW, one for him, one for his girlfriend, one for ME!

But no, thats not all, im his other hand was something even better

"somethign even better"

His new MasterCard.
