I had an urge last night to create a warrior. I’ve played a few low level ones but I always end up deleting for one reason or another. I need a blacksmith, and didn’t feel it would be a good fit for either my monk or rogue, so it was really the perfect excuse to start a new character.
I’m not really a fan of starting out in secluded starter zones (Wargen, Goblins, and Panda all share this fate). I can’t mail myself any heirlooms since there are no mailboxes, and once you’ve gone through the story one time, it gets old. I have a panda monk, rogue, and now the warrior, though the rogue has also not made her way out of the starter zone yet (something to work on today, I suppose). Thankfully the starter zone for this race feels much shorter than the one for the goblins and wargen, you leave on your way to Horde or Alliance by level 11. First thing I did was get situated with some bags and mail my heirloom over (I never realized just how much heirloom I have. There’s a lot of it). I didn’t own the plate pants (I don’t think I could afford them at the time) so I picked those up and decked the little warrior out.
I’m hoping to level this character up as a tank, and try a lot of LFG. I’m sure I’ll get lots of ‘creative comments’ from people and maybe even kicked out of an instance or two. That being said, it’s just a game, and I’m looking forward to it. Tanks are always the one class I tend to stay away from, but in WoW it’s just so easy to get a group, I would like to give it a go. We’ll see.
As always, happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself!
