Welcome once again to World of Warcraft Throwback Thursday. Today, I am feeling very nostalgic, so we are going all the way back to the beginning; back when the Undead were really cool, and the Orcs were super feral and barbaric. Today I have picked the original cinematic intro to the game, for to feast your eyeholes with.
Wow, remember how good that trailer was? it still gives me chills to this day. I was playing the now defunct City of Heroes, and the granddaddy of them all, Everquest, when I first saw this cinematic; it made me want to play the game right away! Tell the truth, you made an Undead Warlock just so you could have that huge badass elemental for a pet, right?
My very first character was a female Night Elf Druid (I later abandoned her for a Nelf Hunter named Elysius) just so I could morph into cat form and jump through the woods like the Druid in the trailer. My buddy Stephen made a Dwarf Hunter and tamed a bear as his first pet, just because of how awesome they looked in the trailer.
Did you play WoW from the beginning, and does this trailer bring back all the warm and fuzzy feels? When did you start playing Wow? Let me know in the comments below, and while you’re there, tell me what you would like to see as the next World of Warcraft Throwback Thursday.
