    I have 2 favorite moments. The first was when I beat Karazhan for the first time.  It felt like a great sense of accomplishment that I actually completed one of the raids.  I felt that same sense of accomplishments later on when I beat the heroic Naxx raid.  I had been running Naxx a while with my guild and had picked up a lot of great lewt along the way.  When we finally beat it I was like WoW!  That was a lot of fun and feels good to beat another raid.  I finally felt like I was an elite WoW topping the damage charts with my mage during raids made me feel pretty good.

    The first time I did a 5 man and realize the amount of teamwork needed to finish certain task in game. Soloed my way to 50 and when I did my first instance my mind was blown by how much of the game I was missing.

    When I first stepped into the game during the EU release. It was an amazing experience and was the start to years of entertainment, which I will not forget.

    Hands down, my favorite questline to date was the Harrison Jones questline in Uldum. Every part of that quest had me squealing with joy and geeking out. Maybe it's because I loved the Indiana Jones movies so much as a kid, but I absolutely loved that questline, and made a point to do it on all of my characters. This is my loc discovering what's inside the Coffer of Promise (I was too enthralled when I did it on my spriest main to remember to take screenshots).

    Doing a guild running of the bulls from Thunderbluff to The front gates of Stormwind.


    For those who dont know the running of the bulls is taking a LVL 1 tauren and running though the biggest and scaryest areas you can. FIrst group there got a prize from the guild master.

    Because i can.

    On Christmas Day 2008 I stood in Stormwind giving away free gold 500 per person.

    I made a list of the people I gave gold to so they couldnt recieve more than one gift.

    I gave away 15k that morning and made people very happy.

    Also leveling a rogue in vanilla after my son was born, I would have him sleeping in his crib next to me while I leveled.

    That rogue is now his rogue, hes 7 years old.

    On November 23rd 2004, World of Warcraft officially opened it's gate for launch.

    I remember my twin brother and I logging in for the first time seeing those glowing gates and feeling like a champion entering it's gates for the first time. Throughout our time we have created many bonds and friends.

    My moment of complete "WoW" was when logging in for the first time and knowing we were taking a step into a game of wonder and

    My favorite moment in wow was just a silly moment with collision. I was a new player in 05 and a bunch of my buddies were helping me quest in Western Plaguelands. One of my friends was a Orc warrior who decided to show off. He jumped onto a fireplace in one of those half burned down houses and started to dance while everyone took a break.


    When it was time to move to the next area he fell in the fireplace and could not get out. We all rolled laughing for ten minutes at the silliness of it all. We tried everything to get him out. In the end we went and got a Mage to port him out. We ported him out and as soon as we did someone had pulled  a world boss to ogrimmar. He was insta killed after his loading screen cleared. We laughed and laughed over our mates poor luck that night. We've gamed together for many of years, but that is a night we will never forget.

    I was doing a Heroic Steamvaults run on my hunter back in BC and we were fighting the first boss, Hydromancer Thespia. Well everyone but myself had died, including my pet, and both myself and the boss had a sliver of health. So she charges me and I hit her with a melee attack (damn deadzone!) and it crits to kill her! The group went nuts and I always regretted not having fraps running :/

    End of WotLK, we managed to kill Lich King as 25men with all the bad luck and server lag. It was one of my best moments, I called my mom and dad while Lich King was around %2. They pretend to be excited  (even tho they dont understand much) for me :) That was hilarious, they were asking "is this Lich King, where are you, which one is that? oh,you are the cow with the tail! :)" That was the moment that my parents were beside me even tho they hate that I was playing WoW. But since it was something that I enjoy most they didnt talk about it much. So I was so happy that day to kill Lich King for the first time with my parents beside me :P

    The most memorable experience in WoW for me was finally downing The Lich King.  We worked on him for a solid 3 months before we were able to kill him.  I'd been waiting since WoW was launched to fight him, so seeing him in game was amazing.

    My most meomrable moment would be when I encountered an event by accident. I was just walking into Stormwind Keep minding my own business when Lo'Gosh came running in and starting accusing the noble Katrana Prestor as being Onyxia and out of nowhere she turned into a huge dragon and the knights in the room turned into dragonkin. This was when I had just began playing WoW so I didnt really know what the game was about, but it was definitely the most memorable moment.

    One of my favorite moments in World of Warcraft was one of my biggest achievements. I accomplished by finishing the battered hilt quest and had obtained a weapon called Quel'Delar, the Might of Faithful. It was a long, painful quest I've ever encountered and at the end I was mesmerized at the Sunwell in 2010. The feeling was like, "Wow!" Hehe.. Screenshot enclosed below.

    My favorite moments in wow, were the massive world pvp battles in silverpine forest. Show up in the location and have Alliance and Horde staring each other down in the hundreds of layers. One person moves forward and the giant battles begin!

    First time I saw Ragnaros in Molten Core during vanilla.  His intro scene just felt epic back then.  Even more so when most of the server hadn't even started in on MC.

    My favorite moment was the very first time I walked into Orgrimmar as a tauren after a very long run from Mulgore. This was like 4 days after the game just came out and I just couldn't believe how epic it looked.

    One of my favorite moments was being recruited in my friends server first guild and doing BT pre nerf and getting 2 piece tier 6.

    When I first got the game I was torn between getting it or Everquest 2. (they came out a few months apart from one another), I decided to try WoW, since I loved the previous World of Warcraft games. 

    I've always loved hearing/reading stories of dwarves and their trials and tribulations and their craftmanship.  So, I was very, very excited when I was able to actually step into the shoes of an actual dwarf (a female one at that).

    Playing through the starting area was fun, the Scottish accent had me laughing out loud, but it wasn't until I walked up a hill on a path and saw the entrance to Ironforge that my mouth dropped open.  The entrance was intricate and ornate and just how I pictured how an entrance to a Dwarven city would be, but so much more.  Upon entering the vast Ironforge, my mouth remained on the floor.  I was just enamoured by it all.  It was actually a living, breathing dwarven city.  The stories from my books came alive on my screen.  The thing that made it better....I was now a citizen of this great city that my dwarven brothers had built.

    I knew then that I had made the right choice in which game I had chose.


    An interesting side-note - I have yet to feel that same feeling upon entering any other cities of any other games I have played.  Ironforge still holds a special place in my MMO heart for the feeling it game me that day.
