…like the corners of my mind
Misty Darkshore screenshot memories
Of the way we were…
I got to feeling a little sentimental tonight and figured I’d share some old school Gar with y’all. I wasn’t very screenshot happy during my early playing days, but here are a few from the archives that you might enjoy…
My first ever WoW screenshot. I felt very proud at this moment, having ventured out upon the bowsprit of the boat from Darkshore. I was also into my twenties and feeling very capable. Sadly though… Delilah, my Moonstalker Runt and first pet, was eventually kicked to the curb in favor of Broken Tooth. Her only trace of existence being this screenie right here.
The second screenshot I’d ever taken. No real significance to it, but it seemed like a good photo op at the time. Definitely a familiar scene for many.
What Night Elf doesn’t remember their first trip to Stormwind..? This may not have been my first trip, but it was close…
Anyone remember the cooking quest..?
The Great Chasm
Still relatively fresh off my taming of Broken Tooth, I was feeling pretty accomplished at this point. Such a noob…
Upon seeing Booty Bay for the first time, that was by far my favorite vacation spot in the game. It wasn’t until months after this screenshot that I discovered there was a giant on that island in need of an ass-kicking. Anyone do that quest anymore?
I remember these things scaring the hell out of me when I was trying to fish. I’d always vowed to come back and teach one of them a lesson.
What a strange and incredible place, and what a huge dragon… Ooh, he’s elite… I bet he has some decent loots. Let’s check it out…
Volchan, the molten giant who you’d think would drop a nice rare item, but instead only has crappy greens.
After months and months of warfare, the prodigal son has returned to his roots… Garwulf at level 60, feeling pretty godly in his rare PvP set.
I hope you enjoyed this trip down memory lane with me. I’m sure many of you can relate to some of these screenshots. 🙂
One thing that saddens me… No matter how cool Cataclysm is… with its new playable races, graphics engine, dungeons, ranked BG goodness, guild leveling, archaeology, masteries, and other Catclysmicky awesomeness… WoW will never be as enjoyable as it was back then. Back in the ol’ days.
I miss those days.
I’m looking forward to Cataclysm and I have no doubt it will be a blast. I just know that nothing they do to the existing game will ever make me feel the wonderment I experienced the first few months of playing. Those were the best months.
