I was always a big fan of console games, however i'd never played any online games. My boyfriend back then was playing WoW regularly and I used to mock him and the game.
He turned round to me one day and said why don't you try it? So I made a toon on his account and played around for a couple hours, loved it so much I had to go buy it myself the next day :P
I rolled a night elf druid, as they sounded so cool, with all the different ways you could play, alliance as thats what faction he was on. Started levelling as boomie, later switched to resto and that toons still my main to this day
