I started playing World of Warcraft sometime in 2006 after my sister had been playing for about a year. At the time, I didn't quite get the appeal--years before I had tried Ultima Online and hated it. I tried again after seeing the neat stuff my sister was doing with her character, a hunter (Thatrous on Galakrond). She let me create a character on her account, and Persea was born.

If you haven't noticed by now, I have a thing for Greek mythology, and Persea comes from Persephone. (My other characters are Cerebus, Dionisis, Ceresia and Prosperine [my Death Knight!]). I thought about being a Blood Elf, but from what I saw everyone and their mother was either a Blood Elf or a Night Elf. No one was playing trolls, especially not female trolls, and especially-especially not female warrior trolls, so that's what I went with. Plus, trolls are really tall, and so my character towers over the puny humans. It's kinda awesome.

I played intermittently for a year or so, but it wasn't until my senior year of college that I really started to play and level my character. I joined a guild and found that that a lot of the players on my server (Zul'jin) were around my age. In fact, there were a lot of 20- to 24-year-old chicks playing. I don't socialize too much in-game, but I do think it is so neat how far technology has come that we have this epic (really!) gaming platform where people can play with kids from around the world. So yeah, neat.

I know a few of my friends are on WoW on different servers. What do you like best about the game?

Wow, that's a good question. I don't even have many friends who do play WoW.

But right now i'm playing on a private server which I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not.

um. Hmmm. in the retail version of WoW... It's nice to be able to play along side people. It's actually better if you have friends to play with if you ask me. Guilds are really cool too. I've been in a few where they weren't helpful at all. I've actually met a few cool people on there.

but the one thing i hate about WoW is the price of the games... and then having to pay 15 bucks a month or 30 for what... two months... to just play...

Yeah, they can get pricey. The sistergirl and I switch off who pays, which eases the hurt.

My brother plays on a private server--he likes being able to instantly create level 70 characters and build things...I should just get him to play Sim city with the cheat codes, lol.
