    @KathyGaele if I remember correctly, the nelf mage thing started with the elves from down around Dire Maul way, whose name I can't remember even though they were a group you could earn rep with back in vanilla, coming to Tyrande and going "okay so I know you all don't trust mages because Queen Azshara etcetera, but we've had visions of something really bad happening and we'd like to help you fight it and also maybe not be on our own for fighting it cough cough" and Tyrande going "okay well you don't seem crazy or powermad and bad stuff happening can always use more people to fight it, we will let you in for now and keep an eye on you" and then nelfs could be mages.

    I found this guy and spent a solid five minutes watching him do his thing. You can't get up there. I suppose maybe a dedicated person could find a way to hit him with a ranged attack, but why would you? He's so happy. Shine on, you crazy diamond.

    druid, lore nerd, will check server tomorrow, starting to collect pets, prefer alliance currently because FUCK Hellscream :/, I used to like PVP but haven't tried it yet, night elves & trolls are my faves, by looking for my fave names and then hitting randomize until I find one I like and slightly adjusting it once my faves are inevitably already take

    Also this just happened and I can't deal with it so I'm going to bed now x3

    Wyrmrest Accord/Moonguard (and one toon on Emerald Dream), and going into Legion it looks like I'm gonna be maining my Holy Priest Ally side and my Blood DK Horde side. I'm basically an Alliance junkie, but by that I mean I'm so fucking fond of the Draenai it kills me (and I actually have more Belves on every realm than I do Alliance characters.) Horde vs Alliance? MORE LIKE SCRYERS VS ALDOR AMIRIGHT.

    I have a frankly obscene number of tmog pieces for my clothies, and getting there on my leather characters. I've got some pretty decent sets for plate, and mail is... sad. Mail is always sad. Why is mail the way it is. (SWITCHING SPECS AUTOSWITCHES YOUR TMOG IM SO EXCITED I HAVE SLUTMOGS ON ALL THE SPECS I HATE AND I'M LOVIN IT)

    We PVP'd our way up to 90 on one set of characters, and I did actually enjoy it a fair amount, but it's not like I'm hopping in the Arena or anything. And despite being on a non-PVP RP server, I adore world PVP ngl. Ganking the shit out of a poor flagged Hoardie in Shadowmoon Valley was one of my favorite experiences in WoD.

    I'm not a huge lore nerd, but I do live with one, and I care about getting characters mostly right, so I tend to hyperfocus on specific areas of lore. Which given that HALF OF WoD CONTRADICTS EXISTING DRAENAI LORE was a big fuckin issue for me while playing through it, because established Draenai characters were getting snarked at by fake lore junkies because they were ~inaccurate~ and no, actually, we aren't because the lore for Draenai diverges spectacularly enough that the many worlds theory here has to apply, because [spoilers] in Legion contradicts WoD lore and reaffirms existing BC lore, SO ANYWAYS. I'm. Really invested in the Draenai. Love me russian space goats.

    (At some point, I am getting a tattoo of the Draenai racial emblem. It'll probably be after my wings, but I am getting one.)

    And I let the random name generator give me names. Because I'm more willing to click the 'random' button a million times than actually alt-tab and look for a decent name myself. Surnames I do research, tho.

    Former player here, troll enh shaman main since vanilla, was playing inconsistently during WoD, quit sometime into the last patch... not really regretting it. I was originally on Firetree during vanilla, but transferred to Destromath not too long after transfers were implemented. I think only the deaths of green jesus and/or SHUSH TYRANDE could convince me to return, but alas. Metzen continues to disappoint, especially with

    the cocktease where Xavius corrupts Ysera (I'm so sick of generic corruption as a plot point) and captures Malfurion, forcing Tyrande to choose between trying to rescue him or defending the Temple of Elune and letting him die... and she chooses the defend the temple. But Malfurion still lives in the end. I was so disappointed to hear about that, I really cannot stand the complete reaming his already kind of insufferable character got during Cataclysm.

    I had also really hoped that this had been how the enh shaman artifact thing had played out, but oh well.

    Whining aside:
    • I was a huge pet collector (I think I'm actually still at #7 on my server despite quitting before Legion was released '_,), sitting at 668 unique pets iirc
    • love transmog but banks could only hold so much stuff when I was playing
    • I'm horde all the way
    • I have a love/hate relationship with PvP since I play to win (I was SO CLOSE to gladiator in season 4!), but overall I really like it. MoP and WoD being what they were meant that I was doing it alone and that is the fucking worst, though
    • I'm definitely a lore nerd but my interest in that definitely waned during the end of MoP and WoD as a whole as my frustration with Metzen's hilariously bad writing and character assassination continued to mount (Garrosh '_,)
    • naming toons is the worst god damn thing ever. I think the only name I've thought of that I've been proud of was my worgen rogue named Furfrag, and I'm pretty sure that's not even original.

    I also own a magic rooster mount. I miss that guy :(

    oh man alliance pvpers are my Enemies because i am very much a Why Can't We All Just Get Along type player (unless someone significantly less geared than me tries their luck, in which case i temporarily become a FUKK THE ALLIANCE HORDE 4 LYF WHOOP WHOOP TRY ME AGAIN I FUKKIN DARE U type player)

    i only started playing a few years ago!! halfway through MoP, a little bit before garrosh went Officially Off The Rails.

    i am TERRIBLE at pvp because i panic and forget all of my spells :( it's really nice when people are friendly across factions!! like cheering for you after pet battles or helping you out when you're overwhelmed by a mob and stuff like that :')

    i am one of those obnoxious people who spends a million years naming their characters. my greatest naming triumph is Nyx, but Adele is a close second.
    Ukala, Zarazi, Senzala, Javi, Jinkha (trolls)
    Yemaya, Nyx, Brinne, Inaya, Ilera, Solean (blood elves)
    Roowa (orc)
    Mathilda, Camellia, Lenora (undead)
    Lexi, Kazza, Wixe, Ixxa (goblins)
    Onah, Topanga, Lenali, Hotah (tauren)
    Meiling, Yajiri (pandaren)
    Meena, Kaaris, Olenya, Bramir (draenei)
    Adele, Leylenne, Nyshara, Allenne (night elves)
    Fizze, Bixiwin (gnomes)
    Marinne, Morwenna (worgen)
    Adelia (human)
    Hera (dwarf)

    i.... think that is most of them? only Yemaya, Senzala, Nyx, Adele, Wixe, and Brinne are over lv 90 tho :U i FREQUENTLY make characters just for funsies then abandon them forever

    fun fact: the only toon i have leveled from 1-100 without any kind of boost is senzala, my destro lock. nyx is a DK, yemaya (shadow priest) i boosted from 60 to 90, Adele and Brinne are both DH, and Wixe i boosted to 100. i am The Worst
    i!!! love making transmogs!! i am super excited about the transmog update. i work rly rly rly hard for arguably pointless minor transmog adjustments.

    my pets are all VERY DEAR TO ME!!! they have names and i love them

    (also i dont know shit about the lore. i pretend i do during nerd conversations but i Do Not. i am constantly learning. i never know what is happening during lore-heavy events)

    I'm on Wyrmrest Accord Alliance and Moon Guard Horde.. current main is Wyrmrest Alliance. My main has almost always been my shaman since BC who has gone through many faction and race changes, but will always be a pandaren when she's alliance unless they come out with another cool alliance shaman race in the future. Right now I'm resto and have been maining as resto for a long time now though I did start out that character as enhancement and raided as both enhancement and later elemental DPS all the way up til the ToC tier in WoTLK. then it turns out I am very good at healing, much better than I am at DPS, so i've been sticking with that.

    i was more of a collector of pets before pet battles became a thing and having to travel and battle was a little too tedious for me to want to grind through, i like to collect mounts but I also don't have that much gold to be able to do it well, i only really go out of my way for transmogs i know that i want and i'm not really a completionist there either, i like both factions but horde lore post-Cataclysm makes me upset and agitated and i miss the old 'underdogs who are generally good' feel, pvp makes me get way too upset for me to really allow myself to do it, i'm not much of a lore nerd though i do read the quests on my first way through and i like to have story knowledge because even if I don't RP i am on RP servers and have friends who do, andddd... it's hard to pick a favorite race. a lot of my characters are pandaren but that's mostly because the models are cute. MoP was a fun expansion and the zones were great but i don't find pandaren lore that interesting. but in contrast i really like night elf lore but i wouldn't call them my favorite race. i think i really like tauren? but in a way i feel bad that they're still in the horde. if any horde race seems better suited to just move alliance it'd be them. i miss the pre-Cataclysm horde.

    also naming characters is literally always terrible. my technique varies. sometimes i just randomize a name and change it up a little, or keysmash without looking and try to make a name out of it that sounds race appropriate. in the case of tauren and sometimes night elves i try and mash two words together and hope the name isn't taken sometimes. though my current main-alt is a night elf druid i actually managed to name vaguely after a species of owl (she's a moonkin). pandaren names have been kind of 'see if this chinese name isn't taken' or 'see if this chinese word-name isn't taken'.

    Realm: Wyrmrest Accord mostly, some alts on Moonguard and one on ED.
    Mains: Draenei Paladin and it seems like my Troll Druid is the horde main this time around.
    Pets: I have a good amount but I'm not a big collector, mounts however? I'm trying for the big acheives in that part.
    Transmog: It took me nearly two hours to make sure every transmog piece I had was in my appearance thing and then to delete / sell those pieces. This was only on one character.
    Horde v Alliance?: EEUGHHHGHG For the HORDE but also for the Draenei. (Mostly I'm horde at heart, but I do love the space goats).
    PVP?: I. LOVE. PVP. I'd love to get into arena stuff again but PR and I tend to duo bad combos lmao.
    Lore nerd?: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA Yes. I'm a big lore nerd, I use to be RP officer in one of the top guilds on The Venture Co.
    Fav Race?: EEEH Draenei and Blood elf are tied, Night elf and Worgen are also tied for second. Trolls live somewhere in there.
    Names: I either hit the randomizer until I like the name then tweak it, use one of the 'random wow character name by race' generators, or do tons of fucking research as in the case of one of my dragon characters Atramaku.

    WoW is just... rly a part of me.

    Okay, shameful confession: Ellphu is the only character I have legit leveled from 1-100. And that was when I had the newbie buff from just joining the game in MoP. Almost every 90 I have was boosted from 60, my DH doesn't count because they start at 98, and my Shaman, Monk, and DK were all boosted because fuck WoD. (Tho I do grind up to 60, because old world grinding isn't the hell that Cata/MoP/WoD grinding is, and I like the profession bonuses. I do miss leveling through Northrend tho. Northrend is one of my favorite zones to level in.)

    I have a GDoc with all my TRP profile written out (both for spellchecking and SAVING THEM FROM INEVITABLE HARDDRIVE FAILURES AAAAAAAUGH THREE TIMES THIS HAPPENED) and it's like... 14 pages long? Half the characters were deleted midway through leveling for new characters, but by god if the first thing I do when I come out of CC isn't making a TRP profile for my babies.

    edit: Also my greatest tmog achievement is getting the Frostweave, Cindercloth, Mageweave, and Goldweave mogs. On one character. (Is it Ellphu? It's Ellphu. BUT NOW EVERY CLOTHIE CAN WEAR IT.)

    i was once upon a time a major altholic and had basically everything up to 85. i even leveled plenty of alts in WoTLK when the majority of the leveling experience was still very painful vanilla questing which a lot of people didn't do.

    i have since deleted shit and moved stuff around so much that it just kind of ended up being cheaper and less time consuming to make something new on the server i want it to be on and just boost it to 100 off the bat.

    i had grand plans to reroll a bunch of stuff elsewhere then realized that i've already done the leveling content so much that i have a painful reaction to even the thought of doing it again.

    It helps when you level with friends (me and @Mendacity pretty much never level solo, we level together) and do dungeons for the brief stints of particularly grindy zones. We have a friend who managed to get from 1-90 in... a day? Doing dungeon runs with all heirlooms and a seconday XP bonus. It was wild.

    (Also I wish I'd hopped on it, but apparently in the Legion launch event, there was a way to cheese the invasions so that you could do the first two parts, log off, and reset the invasion to the beginning and get XP hand over fist. A different friend of mine leveled three chars from 1-100 just doing that. I should have done it too.)

    yeah, the invasions were crazy for leveling. i had a warlock sitting at 65 for the longest time and i just moved her to kharanos and chain did the first two phases over and over again and got her to 100 very quickly.

    Guy whispered me inviting me to join the guild he's started with his wife. A 'nice, friendly place free of trolls where people can be themselves =^.^='
    I say that sounds pretty good, ask if they're LGBT+ friendly.
    him: 'i'mnot one for agendas of any kind being public or paraded'
    me: okay maybe not then, have a good day!
    Dude. Chill.
