After going through my screenshots folder – I really need to organize the thing – I found what I think is my first WoW Screenshot. I had taken a screenshot to put on my Lifejournal to show my friends aha. I was so proud of this little gnome.
This is Prim. I obviously didn’t know how to change the setting to not show helmets at this point.
I loved questing at this point! Running around like a little maniac, stabbing and collecting things. I read the quest text religiously – the thought of asking for help mortified me. I discovered Wowhead pretty early on as well.
The Shattering was taking place when I started WoW. It completely freaked me out one day when earthquakes started. I had no idea what was happening! I didn’t even know there was an expansion coming. And when I logged on one day and all of my interface and abilities had changed I was horrified. I couldn’t figure out what I had done wrong! I wasn’t even in a guild at that point, so I just … figured it out and plunged on.
And that is how I started WoW.
I found an even older screenshot! Hadn’t the foggiest how to make the UI disappear. And I’d never seen another dead character before. Oh, dear.
