    Right now my main is my Gnome Frost DK (although I change mains fairly often). Tried a few times to level a DK and could never do it till I rolled Gnome, just love the little wrecking ball. Also my guild needs Tanks more than healers (I'd prefer to heal but we have a ton of healers already), so having a tanking OS is handy and probably the reason I jump on my DK for most of my guild's group content.
    I actually dont have 1 main! Got 2Mains, 1 alt and alot of Trash alts

    Mains are Hunter(Survival or MM), and my Enha sham. Alt is a Ret pala.

    Why? Because i love their gameplay, and their gamestyle, and there are ALWAYS something you can do, to perform a little better.

    Tho i got every class ingame at 85 - 90. But thats trash alts i only use for Professions (lies, my monk is still 21)

    It has been Hunter since Vanilla, and Enha sham since the very beginning of TBC.
    And they have both followed me since
    Main(s) since Vanilla: Enha sham / Hunter. Alt since TBC: Warrior.

    My original main in TBC was an undead warlock, as I liked the concept of a dark, distrusted character who basically harnessed and manipulated the powers of evil in order to fight evil.

    However, I tend to prefer melee to ranged, so later on my DK ended up becoming my main, as he fit the same concept as the warlock, except, as a melee toon.

    wanted a Female NE mage when i was reading the manual before actually installing the game when it was released, noticed i couldnt do it so rolled a human female, being the only thing close to attractive and easy on the eyes available at the time (gnomes yuk).

    Then draeneis came out and rerolled Draenei for that beautiful wiggly bottom.

    Always loved mages, all games i play always go for a mage first (rogue second)
    Guess it started when gf introduced me to D&D (yes, yes a girl playing it, wtf i know right) which was.... 2002? 3e or 3.5e? 3e i think.
    Anyway, and mage was a class that required more thought into it, due to all the different spells, circumstantial utility and needing preparation.
    In WoW, well, it had a lot of nice cantrips which were slowly removed out of the game (yay, blizzard's definition of fun(tm) is to remove anything that doesnt do MEGA-DAMAGE and give more MEGA DAMAGE SPELLZ, hurr)

    Anyway, yes, mage for its glass cannon, high risk-high reward playstyle.
    Sadly then they messed everything up sooo just went with shaman (again wiggly bottom draenei) aaand then they decided... yeah.
    So nothing atm, world of tanks and soase.

    I like spells.

    I picked my DK over the holy pally I played in vanilla and tbc. I figured my guild would never let me go ret even if it was made viable because I was too good at what I did. Rerolling seemed like it was the most legit way out of healing.

    My first character that I leveled in Vanilla was a human paladin. I liked the idea of a holy warrior but ended up a healadin. In Burning Crusade, I learned I could tank and switched to that for a while. Didn't play much Cataclysm and switched to a Horde hunter. When MOP was announced and Transmorgification was in full swing, I knew I could design my Paladin in true crusader fashion though I became a fan of the power that healing now has. So, for me, the reason I play a paladin is for the whole pompous, shiny, tough to kill, savior image with a bit of arrogance and pride mixed in. I put on my scintillating golden battle suit and parade into the battleground and keep my team alive or die while they achieve their objectives. The human to me is the prototype paladin from D&D days and that is who I am.

    Human paladin and the reason for that is because humans fits so well in plate gear! Really a big reason i even made my paladin back in TBC was because they could have really cool gear! And then i love playing paladins, been playing my paladin 4 expansions now and still enjoy it a lot and the storyline behind paladins are really good aswell.

    I'll sum it up with 2 words and a number: Warcraft 3 Arthas!
    Yep I'm guild-less because of toxic elite-jerks in my old top raiding guild. Why can't we all get along like normal human beings?

    Well my first main was a Blood elf Mage.....raided through BC and Wrath with him. But then I play an Undead Priest through cata, and a NE druid through the end of cata. Now i play a Troll monk who was originally a Tauren when I leveled. But yeah I loved the blood elf lore when BC came out and the whole lust for magic made me want to play a mage, also fire/frost/arcane was the greatest idea for talent trees when I was a noob. Undead Priest......idk I like their animations and it almost seemed like an oxymoron at the time. The NE druid was simply because of lore and how original it was. Now I play classes for the racial buffs...which I hate, but I guess that's what I get for playing WoW for 7 years...

    I went with a Worgen Druid. I've played off and on for 7+ years and have tried and leveled almost every class (except clothies - I am just too used to tanking). Here are the reasons I picked what I did.

    Worgen Druid:

    Bonus to Crit
    Extra run boost (Dark Flight)
    Instant Shifting
    Instant Flight Form
    Tank / Mdps / Rdps / or Healer
    Skinning / LW to make my own gear
    Bonus to skin speed as Worgen
    Better looking bear and cat than Night Elves
    Human or Wolf form, makes it nice for mounts
    Running Wild, just looks cool from time to time

    and about a hundread other new reasons including Herb gathering in Flight Form (recently switched to Herb/Scribe before I go Resto/Balance)

    This pic in the TBC page screenshots sealed the deal for me:

    The male blood elf looks odd... I can't pinpoint what's the problem, but is he skinnier then playable blood elves or am I imagining things?

    Those are the Alpha/Beta TBC Blood elves. Notice the Blood elf female in the backround, She has the skeleton of a night elf female.

    Playing Amazon's and Sorceress's in Diablo 2 made my choice of main being a Hunter, that is the only reason, otherwise i probably would of went Warrior or Mage.

    I played a mage full time from Vanilla up until Mists of Pandaria when I chose to switch to mistweaver monk. I originally rolled a mage due to being tired of melee from Everquest when my guild received Vanilla beta invites.

    I fight for what is right. In real life I am a combat vet having served in three different conficts. I will even but my head against overzelous moderators if need be.

    That is why I chose paladin tank.





    There is no bad RNG only bad L2P

    I spent a lot of time thinking about whether I should pick up WoW or not, browsing the WoW website etc. I decided I wanted a nightelf, as they were the only elves available at the time and I preferred the Alliance. I also wanted to play something that wasn't very common, so I ended up having to choose between hunter and druid. In the end, shapeshifting won out!

    You are probably right. Having played night elves so much she didn't seem too different from normal because of that.

    Female blood elf paladin, because of the sex appeal, voice and fighting animations. Right now i'm not able to play a female pandaren, because they lack of sex appeal for me.

    When I was first handed a trial copy of the game, I did some quick (~15 min.) research on wikipedia about what each race/class was, and decided to go with an undead warlock. By the time I actually built the character, after some discussion with friends, it became a blood elf warlock. Somewhere in Wrath, it got a race change to an orc warlock, which it still is.

    I decided I didn't want to play a healer (hard to do stuff on my own) or a tank (sounded boring). I decided that warlock sounded the "coolest" from a RP/lore perspective. The idea of having a pet "help" sounded like fun.

    My first character was a draenei paladin. I got him to level 80 during WotLK and I got bored of him pretty quickly. I made my second character, a human warrior, soon after. It was a bit difficult at first because I didn't really understand the logistics of the class. After I learned about stance dancing, defensive cooldowns, and weapon swapping I fell in love with the warrior class. The slightly higher skill floor made it unfriendly for me as an awful play to pick up. After I figured out what I was doing (for the most part) my warrior became my main and has been ever since. I still play a lot of alts and get other characters to max level. My warrior is almost always entertaining and I enjoy DPS, tanking, and almost all aspects of PvP.
