I first saw this over at Warlockery – and decided what a fun way to update my blog, plus it lets me procrastinate just a bit more about those entry quests into Pandaria that I’ve been promising you for a week or two…!
Day 1: Introduce Yourself
I usually call myself “not your usual WoW demographic” – meaning that I’m NOT a teenage boy. But the longer I’ve been playing (just over a year now) the more I meet people from all walks of life, and although people like me are still in the minority, there are definitely more people like me out there than I imagined.
In real life I’m a 30 something woman, happily married with two kids, and a freelance graphic designer.
My first character was Macnessa, a night elf priest. I then decided that priests were too hard to level (though at this stage – it was because I was being hopelessly nailed in battlegrounds and not understanding a THING about proper gear), so I created Legolene, my draenei frost mage. I leveled her up to 85, and then started leveling Macnessa again.
I found my groove with healing, and although I love to give the horde a massive gank on occasion, I think I’m a natural healer at heart. Possibly because I’m such a chick.
I’m currently leveling my Mistweaver Monk (Bruuslee). Another healer! I’m really liking the more evenly balanced healing/damage-dealing features of the monk, that allow me to choose my style of gameplay much better, healing from the rear – or if I find myself in front – being able to hold my own (to a point) with damage.
Feel free to introduce or link to your own WoW blog in the comments, I’d love to hear from other players.
