Breakfast Topic: Say anything

Anne Stickney

Sometimes I get reminded exactly how long I've been playing World of Warcraft. It's a simple enough matter to say "Oh, I've been playing since" and insert vanilla, TBC, Wrath, Cataclysm -- it's another to really think of just how long that has been. In between the first day I picked up this game and rolled my first character, I've moved three times, met countless new friends, watched other friends move away -- and really, the only constant was that regardless of all the various things I was doing out here in the real world, Azeroth was still around through it all, able to be put away when I was too busy, picked back up again when I wasn't.

And in a bout of late night musing, I wondered, because I do sometimes -- if I could go back in time and tell that me in 2004 anything, when she was first installing the game, anything at all, what would I say? On the one hand, the idea of being able to send my past self a message sounds pretty cool. On the other, I don't know if I'd really want to give anything away. Between everything that's happened out here in the real world -- both good and bad -- and everything that's happened in Azeroth, a lot of the fun I've had over time has been in discovering and experiencing it all.

Although I might tell her to pick something other than a druid for her first class. At least until patch 1.4 or so. What about you guys? If you had one piece of wisdom to impart to yourself, and a bronze dragon to conveniently deliver the message, what would you say?
