The recent Sixth challenge made me go back through my screenshots and arrange them by year that they were taken. As I was going through them I was reminded about everything that I’ve done throughout the years, and I decided to do a little post on each of the years with a few select screenshots.
I first started playing WoW in April of 2006. Sadly I have very few screenshots from my first year of WoW since I switched computers at some point and was too much of a noob to even know where the screenshot folder was. (Hence it was never saved.) The few screenshots I have are ones that I saved separately through photoshop and stored elsewhere.
My first ever character on my own account was my Priest. I named her Braithe and she was a force of smiting destruction. I was a complete noob of course and my brother sometimes came by to look in on me and see what I was up to. One of my first screenshots is of him turning me into a Leper Gnome, because I was so shocked and didn’t know what was happening or how he did it.
Because I wanted to try everything I also made myself a Tauren Druid, named Rhawne (now the name of my Warrior). The various Druid forms were awe inspiring to me and so of course I had to take a screenshot the moment I was able to turn into a big, furry bear!
Already back then I had a penchant for taking screenshots of the various night skies of Azeroth. I don’t know why, but the majority of my screenshots are always taken at night time. Maybe because it’s when I normally play, but also because a lot of times it’s when I find the skies and atmosphere the best.
