Mountains rise in the distance stalwart as the stars, fading forever.
Roads ever weaving, soul ever seeking the hunter's mark.

My first character was a Dwarf hunter by the name of... Joedwarf. The first time I encountered a hostile mob, I ran away as quickly as I could. Shortly after I deleted Joe, I rerolled a Night Elf druid. I distinctly remember going to Dolanaar, and upon seeing the Ancient Protectors (or whatever those giant trees are called), I attempted to hide in the bushes surrounding the inn. It must've worked, because they didn't attack me! Right..?
Not WoW, but MMORPG related.
A friend and I started playing Everquest back in 2000 and we knew about the "Spirit of the Wolf" run speed buff and it had a boot for an icon. Well, he rolled a druid and we were hanging out in a city and he was like "dood I think I can "SoW" you!" and proceeds to cast ensnare on me. The guards didn't like that and promptly killed him. We couldn't figure out what happened so we go to do it again with the same result. We're perplexed as to why the guards would kill him for run speed buffing me and then he realizes the spell is an offensive one (EQ let you cast those on players even if they had no effect).

The first thing I did in Elwynn forest was attack a wolf, and somehow I turned off the auto-attack and I didnt know what the heck I was doing so I died ;(
Started as a Night Elf Rogue back in TBC, and was under the impression the game had a linear, platform-like structure, so I ran off Teldrassil thinking it would take me to the next area and then rolled a human.
Worst one though, was shortly after LK was released, and I first got interested in raiding. I was searching for raids and got lucky one night and got into a Naxx10 alt run with the top raiding guild on my server. I was ecstatic and intimidated. We down Anub'Rekhan in one shot, then comes the part where I was completely unfamiliar with loot rules in raiding. The need/greed screen comes up and I see a pair of gloves that are a nice upgrade, so I greed them, thinking I'll just be rolling against a few others. To my horror, everybody else in the raid passed and I was immediately kicked. I promptly messaged the raid leader and apologized. A day later, I did a name change. ._.;
I spread my talents between the 3 trees without even going 5/5 in each talent. 7/8/10 build goooo!
As a hunter....my first toon..........at lvl 70...........I didn't know what kiting was.
"Canada is a country where fake girlfriends live"
I may not go down in history, but I'll go down on your sister.
back in early 2006, I never learned about the game because I assumed it was just like City of heroes and/or WC2/3... so I never learned about talents or specs. Until i was around lvl 35-40, when I started tanking SM a lot.
Also, I used to think shield bashing and retaliation were the coolest things since sliced bread
My boyfriend recruited me to the game. He helped me create a rogue and I found it very good to open all fights with my throwing weapon and afterwards run away while he killed them. I also created a mage and thought that I was very intelligent to try to kill the "enemies" with my staff.
i use to get completely lost in deadmines... thats fun lol... couldnt find the entrance
Made a druid solely because of Feline Swiftness or whatever it was called back then since it let me get a 30% movement speed buff at 21. Then at 30 just ran everywhere in travel form because I didn't have enough to buy the riding training and 60% speed mounts at 40. Don't think I bought a 60% speed mount until 60, as I just didn't see myself ever getting enough gold to buy the 100% speed mounts.
After that, tried to make a rogue 19 bg twink. Had most of the gear for her too but never could get a group to run WC since I was alliance. Still have that character, shame they nerfed Assassin's Dagger.
Walked from Theramore to Teldrassil through barrens. Then found out about the "other" ship.
Level'ed much (up till 80-ish?) of my first toon, a "shadow priest", by killing mobs with Penance and generally nothing else... derp.
Another thing was that on my first character (a warrior) all I did was stack stamina because I figured the more health I had the more powerful I would be in battle (???????????????????? wha?????? yeah....I know....)
uh embarrasing... probably the most newbie thing of everything possible lol, i thought killing critters could get you banned, i thought sorry for the deers running around, especially the ones with little kids, if i saw some1 killing them or if i killed em myself i always expected a ban or a warning lol, dam i were stupid..
All sorts of stupid crap I presume when I was -10 (my English back then was veeeery poor, so I had to learn everything the hard way) and I still kept using a 1h+oh until level 40something, 'cause of the stats.. >.<
Edit: Feeling like it's worth mentioning > I was a druid
