    Firstly, putting myself on an oceanic realm even though I'm American.. screwed me over hard until realm transfers came out lol

    I started out as a Tauren Hunter.. Thought 100 melee damage was great for dual wielding swords. Didn't even know quests existed until level 30-40 (I came from the game Tibia originally, which is extremely monster-grind oriented.)

    Didn't eat food until level 60ish playing a Rogue. I'd fight one mob at a time (Sinister Strike combat with daggers!), didn't use poisons, and waited in stealth until my health recovered. I never used Slice and Dice, either.

    Also: a friend of mine has been a rather decent player for the last four years. He only learned a few months ago that you didn't -have- to match gem socket bonuses (he was inspecting my Rogue, where we had the same piece of gear. "Wait, how the hell do you have a red gem in that blue socket?")

    Hm, things like buying a complete armorset without stats from a vendor, and being proud of it. Furthermore.. Falling off the Undercity elevator, twice in a row.

    I equipped a very rare item worth a lot of gold I had found while questing, not knowing it would become Soulbound.

    I put a very rare item on the Auction House before checking its value. Turns out, I could have made about 3k more gold.
    Statix will suffice.

    I leveled all classes to 20 to see what kind of play style suited me the best. Druid won :P

    Wow was my first MMO and I started in vanilla. The first toon I played was a pally and the pure amount of noob things I did was amazing. First I was ret spec with a sword and shield. I based all items on armor value, higher the armor the better I thought it was. Did not understand the seal system. Just thinking about how bad I was makes me sad lol.

    On my hunter, I ran a dungeon (Wailing Caverns maybe?) and I left aspect of the pack on through most of the instance.

    The people in my party were SO PISSED lol. I felt horrible after I realized it but I look back on it and laugh.

    I once explored Silvermoon for about an hour trying to find the massive amount of players speaking on the city's trade chat, unaware that most were all in Orgrimmar...

    The oldest character I still have is a pally, started in Vanilla. I started off putting points just wherever. Someone told me I was doing it wrong, and I had to be Holy, that was the only way anyone would group with me. So I put all my points in Holy. I did run a number of dungeons as a healer, but I hated (and still do) healing, and I hated that charcter. I ran ZF (level 40-something) with a shaman tank (??), and we failed miserably and I was told how bad a healer I was. After, I swtiched to Prot spec, I liked it more, but that was some slow leveling.

    On my hunter (made early in BC), I put all of my talent points in BM. All of them. I didn't understand maximizing from the top rows of others. I had a bear pet. I would run dungeons and constantly be at the bottom of the DPS list, and I couldn't figure out why. Finally someone told me to look up guides online, and that helped a lot.

    The worst thing I did, on my first toon (who got deleted), I was a warrior with Blacksmithing. I would make my own armor, spending all the time farming copper and crafting. Then I would go quest/grind. When my gear was completely red, I'd sell it and make more armor. I didn't know it could be fixed.

    I walked from Thunderbluff to Stormwind at level 7 so I could meet with my human friend irl to group up and quest together...didn't work out so well as I was shocked when the guards attacked me. I thought I had broke the game.

    You can imagen how sad I was as it took me a lot of hours, as the distance wasn't far enough I didn't even know their was a map in game...it took me about 5 days to travel to him. (couple of hours a day of traveling)
    I just made an account to MMO-Champion to say, you sir deserve free subscription.
    Btw I don't remember any newbie things I did but the fact that it took me 50 days to go from 1-85 kinda speaks for itself.

    I tried to level tailoring through the AH at level 20. I also thought you could only have one character, so I deleted my first toon to play on my friends' server.

    Humm, I started with Blacksmithing/Mining on my Warr, but then decided Enchanting was more leet (OMG red glow-enchant! ), so I made alot of bracers with my small blacksmithing skill, enchanted all of them, to vendor them (Didn't know you could enchants stuff more than once :/), and then proceed to run out of mats, and thinking by myself: Hmm, tailoring doesn't require a gathering profession, and gets me green stuff to DE... So yeah, that's how My warrior got Tailoring as his second profession back in Vanilla
    What'y mean I have to taunt it? It looks cuuute! Look, it just wants to hug the healer : D

    haha same, buying grey items from the vendor because they had more actual "armor" than the pieces i currently had.
