Extreme makeover

December 2, 2009

My mage was my second “real” character. I’ve had plenty of low level alts that got deleted or simply forgotten, but my mage got leveled to cap. Lucky little thing.

I created her after discovering the turtle polymorph book in Zul’Gurub. My guild went there to farm books back when they sold for a small fortune on the AH, and I just knew that someday I had to have one. And so my mage was born. A pink-haired gnome. She was more or less made as a joke, because I never intended to do anything with her except level to 60 and get the book of awesomeness. But somehow she eventually found her way to 80. I even raided a bit of Naxx with her. But the thing was, she was just so annoying to play. I don’t know if it was the pigtails, or the fact that gnomes run and jump like they’re on valium, but one day I decided it was time to retire her. Temporarily anyway.

When I heard about the race change feature I was ecstatic. It couldn’t come quick enough, and when it was finally implemented my mage was first in line. She’s now a draenei, and getting all the attention she wants. Really, what’s not to love about draeneis? 1% hit racial is just awesome. And she has a tail! Doesn’t get much better than that.
