When I first started playing WOW, I created a Human Paladin on a random server I liked the sound of. When I told my brother I was on this realm his response was “Wasn’t the point of you creating a character was so you could help me out?” True enough I guess; although he never told me the name of his realm at the time. Shortly after, I created a NE priest on his server Khadgar – the guys at the game shop apparently recommended this realm as the one to be on. That was six years ago now.
Tallys wasn’t always a female Tauren mind you. I started her as a male Tauren since the males always seemed to have better stats in the previous games I played. So I created a male hunter, levelled him to L17 and then realised I couldn’t take a tauren scratching his ass every few seconds so I re-rolled a female and the rest is history. A lot of things have changed since then. My first and really only character to get to 60 in Vanilla was my hunter Tallys. She remained my main until BC came out. Actually a little before that since Cool and I decided to do a trial run of our future BE’s on a couple of humans we created.
Since then my Priest has been my main for a long time and I pretty much stopped playing my Hunter. Partly because I really like the BE race and priest class. I’ll always have found memories of my first 60 but my interest in her has dwindled over the years. I’d go through long patches not really paying her much attention but out of all my alts I consider her my main alt. I tend to play the minority specs, not necessarily the most popular or the like.
Lately though, I have been trying out different specs and filling up my stable with A LOT of pets. In fact my 20 slot stable is almost full :P After trying MM for a while, it was a nice change but yesterday I went back to my familiar SV role. After doing 4 heroics yesterday I think I’m starting to like my hunter again. It’s been a long time coming and I’m glad.
