So, there I was, sitting at my desk and contemplating my life, asking myself the important questions like what am I doing with my life? Why does it have to be so damn cold in the UK right now?
But I had the most important question pop up during my musings and I could not ignore it any longer: What happened to my old World of Warcraft account?
So I opened up the battle.net website, went to the customer service section and opened a ticket concerning my old account and if it would be possible to get it consolidated under my current one. I ended up having to give what felt like my life story to a representative and trying my best to answer some security questions that haven’t been relevant in 11 years (seriously, what was my favourite movie back then? War of the Servers? Rambo? I even asked my mother if she knew these answers because I sure as hell didn’t!). In the end, I got access to my old account as it had been merged into my current one. What was the result of this?
Firstly, I am super pumped for vanilla servers. Just seeing my old characters reminded me of how much I used to enjoy the whole experience, before heirlooms, before dungeon finder. Seeing my old characters in their ramshackle gear, as well as my old level 19 twink, brought back that sense of achievement and the struggle that came with playing a holy paladin at lower levels.
Secondly, I realised that I hold a key to some extreme money making. I logged in to my level 16 blood elf mage and saw it. The incredible opportunity. A relic of the past, lost in the cataclysm…
Mix this with some transmogs that I earned, including a tabard appearance from the olympics, and I am now in one of those nostalgic moments. There’s project60 that I know is going around, but I think I will just let this feeling stew and develop until vanilla servers are properly implemented. I will either play a night elf or a human, and I will play a priest, hunter, mage or paladin. Sorry Horde, without blood elves you have nothing I wish to play; I was always an Alliance player back in vanilla and I don’t intend to change that.
I do wonder what chocolate flavoured World of Warcraft would taste like…
