Once upon a time in 2010 Tam of Righteous Orbs (no, not that one as far as I know) had the idea to collect all EU bloggers who played WoW at the time and form a guild to play together for a bit, this was <Single Abstract Noun> on Argent Dawn-EU. I don’t exactly remember who was in there at the time (I think Jaedia was there), because that was a long time ago.
I started a male Troll Hunter – I’m pretty sure there was a little inspiration because I was watching Kripparrian at the time when he was raiding and making cool videos, but not the main one. I’ve had several hunters over the years, I always liked them, and my second most important char at the time was a male Troll Warrior on my main server. I actually leveled quite a bit in 2010 and 2011 and because this was an RP server, I remember a few occasions of stopping by and looking at RPers in Orgrimmar doing there thing. It was nice, especially on this remote (to me) server with no pressure to level up or get anything done – yes, I’m usually very goal-oriented in WoW and there’s always something to do.
Anyway, at some point I reached Northrend and stopped playing and when I came back, the guild was pretty dead. A single person had a few max-level chars and we chatted for a bit, but that was it. Then I hardly logged in once a year for another few years and that was it basically.
When I bought the bundle of 8 or so transfers a few months back I only had used up all but two and I was still unsure what to do, but I never wanted to just delete this Level 30 (after the squish) Hunter with a history, so on the weekend I transferred him off to a server where some friends play and I already have 2 Level 60s. I changed the name and it’s now a female Troll Hunter who just reached the Shadowlands last night, 20 Levels in current retail are easily doable on a weekend without stressing too much.
Unfortunately I had only made a single post about this but at least it helped me pinpoint the start pretty clearly. So here’s a second post now, as the final end of chapter. Thanks to all who participated back then even if your names are lost to time, it was a fun project and came just at the right moment, in the middle/end part of WotLK.
