MMO Memory Box: World of Warcraft ~ #Blaugust Day 16

This is part of the Blaugust series!

What’s this? Me… a usually non-WoW player… have a box from WoW launch? Well, yes, I do!

Funny thing. I was really into EQ2 at the time, which happened to launch just a few weeks before WoW. WoW wasn’t even on my radar. I was in love with my Ratonga. But, even though I convinced my younger sister to purchase EQ2 and play with me a short while, she eventually went off to play WoW with other people.

So, guess what happened to me? I ended up buying WoW in order to play with my sister. (This is a common thing between us… I have so many games I bought at the whims of my sister’s enthusiasm…)

I don’t remember a whole lot about the game. I know a rolled at least two characters: a Night Elf rouge and a Night Elf druid. I remember spending a lot of time in the starting forest questing and skinning helpless animals. I remember loving fishing and spending a lot of time just chilling by the ocean. I remember enjoying many things in Vanilla WoW, actually.

Ark: The First Night of Ooga Booga

Oops. Looks like Ark was on sale at Steam and my zombie hunting troop decided to play with dinos for a change in pace. Took most the day to figure out how to get the private server to work properly, but it was worth it.

Syn even figured out how to build us a nice little beach shack pretty quickly.

I find it strange that when you log out of the game, your body still remains in world, interactable. Just kinda… flopped over.

I have a feeling our little Ooga Booga tribe is going to have some fun! 🙂
