Who is/are your main toon(s) and what role does he/she/it/they fill?

Goquelyrslf is my main guy. He's a (currently) 26 Dranei Mage, so obviously a healer. I also have a 63 Tauren shaman on Balegun, but he was a transfer from Magtheridon.

How did you join the guild?
I've been posting for a while. I quit WoW a time or two, but decided to see how the other half lived and rolled a ally character.

How long have you played WoW?
Since patch 1.4. I would have been on sooner, but I decided to graduate first, then start obsessing over fictional gear.

Is WoW your first MMO?
Very first ever.

What are your current goals as far as WoW?
Level up to 70, run some instances, pwn some faces, escapist fun.

What is your real name? Seth

Age: 25

Career/job:

More thoughts:
Its still strange for me to be an ally character. At the very least I miss yelling "For the Horde" randomly.

Updated!

Who is/are your main toon(s) and what role does he/she/it/they fill?
Goquelyrslf. He's an 85 Space Goat Mage. He would be a face pwner, but he's perpetually behind all the other mages in deeps. Must be my rotation of AB, AB, stand in fire, die.

How did you join the guild?
I did /who GWJ and pestered people until someone caved and invited.

How long have you played WoW?
Within a year of it dropping. Long enough to remember how awesome Windfury used to be on Enhacne shammies.

Is WoW your first MMO?
Still very first ever.

What are your current goals as far as WoW?
Money money money. MONEY! Also collecting a crap ton of vanity pets.

What is your real name? Seth

More thoughts:
We need more meaningless conversation in gchat. Everyone's so timid it seems. Start typing random stuff and see what happens. How do you think WELCOME TO AWESOMEVILLE started, eh?

Main toon-Pequena Enhancement shaman, working to get geared for healing.

Snuzzles the feral druid is my leveling toon.

How I joined
Been a GWJ forum member for 3 or 4 years now. Cat got me interested in going back to wow.

Wow is not my first MMO, played some of the progenitors from the 90's.

My goal is to play so long as it is fun. Right now I want my arena rating over 2200.

I have played Wow for maybe 1 year and a half or two total. I played for 10 months of Burning Crusade, quit just after the Sunwell dropped, missed Wrath.

Real name is Dan

mmmm, with an arcanite reaper. I swear shamans were not overpowered!

Who is/are your main toon(s) and what role does he/she/it/they fill?

Rantin. He brings the heals. Kelenda is sitting at 73 who will tank eventually and I have a few baby tanks waiting in the 20s. It's weird that the character I started when BC came out so I could learn to do something other than tank became my main. /shrug

How did you join the guild?
Pfft, you guys will let anyone in. Been part of the community for a while and been playing WoW for a while, I figured I only play more than a month when I have good people to play with, so I came along.

How long have you played WoW?
On and off (mostly off) since closed beta

Is WoW your first MMO?
Nope but it is the first one I played for more than 2 weeks.

What are your current goals as far as WoW?
Stop being a crappy healer and get some of my alts leveled so I can see all the content I've been missing.

What is your real name?
Brian

Age?
29

Career/job
IT... person. I kind of run a department, I kind of don't. /shrug

Who is/are your main toon(s) and what role does he/she/it/they fill?

Alydrra. She's currently in her OS healing gear from where I healed my first Heroic (BRC) on Sunday night. I so don't know how to properly Druid heal right now, anyone want to help me practice? According to recount overhealed by 26% and was OOM by about 15-20% left on bosses, but we got through it. But she's primary mDPS.

How did you join the guild?
I was initially in the guild back in the BC days and then moved on to Horde for a while. Came back for Cata.

How long have you played WoW?
Early in the closed Beta. Back when all there was was Alliance and Priests could keep their shield up full time!

Is WoW your first MMO?
First was EQ. Man o Man did I play the heck out of that and still never got a character higher than 35.

What are your current goals as far as WoW?
See the rest of the content. I've never been much of an end game raider but have been having a blast.

What is your real name?
Jeff

Age?

Career/job
Network Engineer

Who is/are your main toon(s) and what role does he/she/it/they fill?
Mudbunnidin - Currently a L29 Protection Paladin. When she hits 30, I am thinking of dual-speccing to holy to get some healing in as well.

How did you join the guild?
I joined the guild for a brief while about a year ago, but got bored always playing by myslefr, as everyone else was raiding. What with the levelling groups, I have people my level to play with that I *know* aren't going to be complete idiots.

How long have you played WoW?
Total, maybe a couple of months.

Is WoW your first MMO?
My first MMO was City of Heroes. Spent about 4 years on the Infinity server as part of the Simian Defence Force.

What are your current goals as far as WoW?
Enjoy myself. I wouldn't mind getting to end-game raiding, but if I can get to the point where I can help running people through farm-able instances so that they might be able to get the foozle they need to raid effectively, I will be happy with that.

What is your real name?
Marcel

Age?
37 (as of yesterday, the 24th of Jan)

Career/job
Patent Examiner

Who is/are your main toon(s) and what role does he/she/it/they fill?
Jornn - paladin. He's specc'd double prot (PvE and PvP) at the moment. I leveled him mainly as ret and switched to prot in Wrath to take advantage of the quick queues. I might take him holy simply to complete the paladin trinity.
Sherrman - resto shaman. He's my leveling toon.
Discco - priest (guess which spec?). He's the toon I'll play when I want a break from my main and can't play my level-capped shaman.

How did you join the guild?
I've been on the forums for a while, and folks here seemed serious and mature about the game. Cata came out and most of my old WoW friends on my original server (Steamwheedle Cartel) have either quit the game or transferred, so this looked like a good time to make a change.

How long have you played WoW?
Since Vanilla -- not day 1, but within the first year.

Is WoW your first MMO?
First and only.

What are your current goals as far as WoW?
To level a bazillion toons. I have a crippling case of alt-itis, which is why I rolled another priest this weekend, never mind that I left a perfectly good one back on SWC. Oh, and I want to actually do a raid or two and rack up 10K honor kills on my paladin. Or maybe my priest. But I think I'd like to roll a goblin, too, and maybe a worgen ...

What is your real name?

Leveling a couple chars: Graemling - ~33 resto druid; Coalfoot - ~32 hunter; Graemlock - 29 warlock

How did you join the guild?
Joined up for cata and the leveling groups. My old guild on another server mostly disappeared or got replaced by strange people.

How long have you played WoW?
Since open beta, on and off. Have a couple horde 80's (resto druid and hunter that I used to raid with)

Is WoW your first MMO?

No kidding, right?

I, three years ago wrote:

Who is/are your main toon(s) and what role does he/she/it/they fill?

My main character is Zerokfe, a level 60 (for another day or two) beastmaster spec Draenei hunter. Most of the time his main role is forcing his poor, loyal bird to pretend it's a tank while he rains pointy death from a safe, comfortable distance.

I also have a banker alt named Zerobana and two banker/potential true alts called Zeroymme and Zeroanne. (I like it to be clear who I am no matter what character I am logged in as. )

How did you join the guild?

I only play multiplayer games with people I know in real life and Goodjers, so while I would very much like to play a Horde character, it is far more important to me to be able to interact with the good denizens of GWJ.

How long have you played WoW?

Since January 1. Yes, I've only ever known patch 2.3 and I like it that way.

Is WoW your first MMO?

Yes, more or less. I've always known it was a genre that would hold great appeal to me, but I've never wanted to let one game dominate my gaming time to the extent an MMO unavoidably does. Oh well, so much for that.

What are your current goals as far as WoW?

Aside from not let it completely dominate all my gaming time, I just want to have fun, see the world that the game has to offer, and enjoy playing with friends. Once I get through the soloable/easily groupable level 70 content, I'm not sure if I'll get into raiding or PvP or just stop playing until the next patch/expansion/time when I have nothing else exciting to play, but I'm not too worried about it either way. I'll do whatever is fun when that time comes.

What is your real name?

My name is Ethan, nice to meet you.

Age?

25, rapidly approaching 26.

Career/job:

I'm a web developer, although I work at a small company so I do a lot of IT work as well.

Honestly, it's funny how little has actually changed.

Who is/are your main toon(s) and what role does he/she/it/they fill?

My main character is Zerokfe, a level 85 SV/BM spec Draenei hunter. Most of the time his main role is lazily shooting exploding arrows into internet dragons from a good safe distance while some other poor sap gets punched in the face.

I also have a banker alt named Zerobana, a level 83 DK farmer named Zeromala, a level 81 resto/ele shaman named Zeroanne who makes my flasks while waiting to be leveled, and a level 33 resto/balance druid named Zerokami who I'm running with the current Monday group. (I still like it to be clear who I am no matter what character I am logged in as. )

How did you join the guild?

I only play multiplayer games with people I know in real life and Goodjers, so I when it came time to play WoW I joined the GWJ guild, despite at the time mistakenly thinking that I would have preferred to be a dirty hordie.

How long have you played WoW?

Since January 1, 2008, with a 5 or 6 month hiatus at the end of 2008.

Is WoW your first MMO?

Yes, more or less. I always knew it was a genre that would hold great appeal to me, but I never wanted to let one game dominate my gaming time to the extent an MMO unavoidably does. Oh well, so much for that.

What are your current goals as far as WoW?

Aside from not let it completely dominate all my gaming time, I just want to have fun, see the world that the game has to offer, and enjoy playing with friends.

What is your real name?

My name is still Ethan, and I'm still reasonably pleased to meet you.

Age?

28, rapidly approaching 29.

Career/job:

I'm still a web developer, and I still work at the same small company so I do a lot of IT work as well.

Happy Birthday, Mudbunny!

Nope, that would be Dark Age of Camelot.
