The MMORPG World of Warcraft is coming up on its 10th anniversary and there have even been players (still playing) who started right at its onset. This interview, however, is with a player who started slightly more recently–only seven years. That said, seven years playing the same game means a lot of changes have been seen and a certain amount of cultural shift.

World of Warcraft has seen numerous expansions, the addition of races, classes, and even a dramatic change to the very map that the game is played on itself (see: Cataclysm) and even the addition of whole new maps (see: Outlands and Pandaria.)

  1. 7 years is a long time, it’s really amazing he can still be passionate about the game after all this time. I’m not familiar with the taming mechanic in WoW but getting that spider sounded epic. It reminded me of Guild Wars 1 “death leveling” pets before taming them… basically you’d find your desired pet and then repeated let it kill you leveling it up. The length Rangers will go to for their pets knows no bounds ^^
