Wednesdays seem like a good day for polls. 🙂
We were all new to the game once. For some that was years ago, for some it was quite recent, but we all had to start somewhere, and chances are, during those first few weeks of WoW (unless you were a prodigy), you did some very silly things.
Last Wednesday, when my druid was running to talk with the Bear Spirit in Moonglade, I was telling my fellow Poxers about how long it took me to find that bear the first time. It was back on one of my very first Alliance characters, and I don’t think I even realized that I could press “M” to see the map of the area. Instead, I was relying on the general directions from the NPC, wandering around, getting very dizzy running up and down the mountains, finding one dead end after another. FINALLY, after something like 45 minutes, I found the bear spirit and then struggled quite a bit to find my way back. (What is this mysterious town, and why is it so empty?) After turning in the quest and being done there, I couldn’t figure out how I was supposed to get back. There was a similarly confused person hanging out there, and when we asked someone for help, they said “hearth.” What? “Hearth.” Is there a fireplace I’m supposed to click on in there? OH. HearthSTONE. *blush* Eventually I learned that there was a flight out of there, back to civilization. Oh, the noobness.
How about you? Tell me something noobish you did in your early days of the game. Confess!
