Welcome to my monthly WoW column about, well, WoW. This is sort of a primer for what this column will be about.
World of Warcraft is a big game. Ten years old, in fact. My WoW career started probably a year after the premier of the South Park episode, “Make Love, Not Warcraft.” For whatever reason, back in 2007, this was my turning point.
I started with a Tauren Hunter. Now? I play a horde of Dwarves, Pandas, and Humans on Aerie Peak US as a part of the CTR guild, raiding every week, and having just put 115 days into my account, since keeping track of it. (Get it? HORDE of Dwarves, etc? Get it? DO YOU UNDERSTAND?)
This, I realize is a little like saying, “This is the most snow we’ve ever had… since we started keeping track of the weather.” It’s quite possible it’s much closer to 200, but I’ve probably made, deleted, restarted, about 100 characters since 2007.
So, in taking my extended WoW career into account, I feel somewhat qualified to come to you, dear readers, and tell you about it. You might hear a story of my climb to raiding, you might hear me complain about not being able to fly in the Warlords of Draenor, you might even hear about the economy of World of Warcraft. But one’s thing is for sure, you can come here ever month to read about my little corner of the World of Warcraft.
You can expect my official debut article of The State of the World to come out sometime next week. Stay tuned!
