WoW’s 9th Anniversary: Memories

I’ve been playing Warcraft for 7 years. My husband (and many, many others) have been playing the full 9 years–and beta! We’re going to take a photographic walk down memory lane:

Ambermist

This whole blog is basically a chronicle of my WoW time, so I’ll be brief–one quick Then-and-Now. 

This was then, Level 70, clueless (but able to avoid fire) resto druid Ambermist:

I AM more demented than you (thank you, UK, for making sure to capture that moment on a screenshot. Now go fix that horrible UI). 

And this is today:

My husband and mageboy wasn’t always a mage. In Vanilla, he was an officer in the guild More Myth on Durotan who went by the name McStabb:

McStabb enjoyed, well–stabbing things. He also enjoyed his pickpocket macro that sent many a naive player into fits of rage and, apparently, killing yetis:

In Burning Crusade through Cataclysm, and now again, he played his mage, Ultraking. You know that pic from your middle school years you really hate? Yeah, this is that one:

But his fashion got a little better over the years, thankfully:

And this is UK today:

Well, now here’s some history. My guild formed in 2004 for the purpose of raiding, and has continued to do so for the past 9 years. With the exception of a few weeks between xpacs and the holidays, CCT has been raiding non-stop since Molten Core and AQ. Here are some pictures fellow guildy and officer Fingolfin dug up from those days:

In Burning Crusade, we killed every raid boss up to M’uru, falling just short of clearing Sunwell before Wrath launched. Here’s our Vashj & Illidan kills:

In Wrath, we got through about half of Heroic ICC, here are Yogg & Lich King kills:

Cataclysm saw a bit of upheaval (thanks, Deathwing), but we got through Heroic Dragon Soul! Here’s our Heroic Staghelm & Heroic Ultraxion kills:

And finally, here we are, poised to make better progress in a raid instance than we’ve ever made. Our new goal is not the old 60% of the Heroic bosses in an instance–it’s 100%. I want to see Heroic Garrosh dragged off in chains. Here are Elegon and our most recent screenshot (because everyone ran off before I took a photo for Heroic Protectors…):

We’ve come a long way, baby; but we aren’t done yet!

Happy Anniversary, World of Warcraft, and thank you for the memories!

  1. Ultraking’s fashion sense has sure improved over the years!
