I rolled a warrior.
This is actually the third warrior I’ve tried. So far, she’s at level 12, putting her further than either of the first two. My very first character in WoW was a human warrior. I chose the class because I assumed it would be closest to the barbarian in Diablo II, which was probably the simplest class to play. I’d say it’s nearly the opposite in WoW — seems warriors are one of the tougher classes to get the hang of, and require a bit more finesse even in the early levels. Anyway, I didn’t last long with her, mainly because I had trouble killing stuff. The first problem was that I kept clicking on the attack icon, turning my autoattack on and off repeatedly (/blush), but even after I figured that out, I wasn’t quite clever enough to kill my enemies before they killed me. I moved on to other classes and had much better luck.
Later, when I settled on my current Horde server, I tried another warrior. I made it a little bit further with her (to level 10 or 11), but got tired of getting my butt kicked whenever I pulled more than one mob. (I also hated Tirisfal Glades.) As soon as I made my hunter, the warrior was relegated to bank alt status, and that’s where she’s remained since, running a circuit between the bank, mailbox, and AH in Silvermoon.
So, why a warrior again? Maybe it was having seen my husband’s warrior tanking in action. Maybe I just wanted a new alt. Probably some of both, but mainly the latter. My sister and her husband are both playing WoW these days, and they have a wide variety of low level characters that I could potentially group up with. We started a little alt guild with them, too, since they decided they’d like to get a better foothold on the game mechanics before joining a larger, more experienced guild. So, my little warrior is heading up that guild, and I’ll probably add my baby shaman to it, too. Mm… alts.
(And, in case you didn’t get the title reference, here it is in its awesomely bad, cheesy glory: The Warrior. I was a child of the 80’s.)
