Hello and welcome back, I will continue my twinking story here, if you did not read the previous entry please do so.
This mindless grind mobbing would continue for a good few months whenever I went over to Tony's house and got a chance to play. On my last visit I remember going into Tony's room during an arena in the Ruins of Lordaeron (though I had no idea what it was called or what he was even doing at the time). He was on a dwarf rogue with a straw hat and funny looking green goggles.
"What character is this, Tony?" I asked, once his arena was over.
"This is Boaa, he's my twink." he opened his character menu, "See, I level up to 19 and get the best gear I possibly can, then I just do PvP so I don't level up anymore, and I shit on baddies, it's really fun, and perfect when I am bored of higher level stuff."
I understood the concept but had one million questions to ask him. Why level 19? How did he know what was best? Why was it called a twink?
"Would I be able to make a twink?" I asked Tony.
"I mean you could, but they cost a lot of gold, you probably wouldn't be able to afford it."
I understood what he was saying, but I completely disregarded it. I was going to make a twink, I didn't care how much of an uphill battle it was going to be. Keep in mind this is all before I had a copy of the game to myself, I was still only playing on Tony's computer at this point, but that was all about to change.
I did not have the money to afford the game for myself, but we had a computer, and I was damn well ready to play. I asked my Mom to buy me the game, and at first she was very hesitant.
"You already have a GameCube, and you play that enough as it is." She told me, "We only have one computer in the house as it is. I am not sure about this, Pat."
"I really like it, Tony and me would have something to do together, please." I pleaded.
"I'll think about it." My mom said.
With a spot of luck, a lot of pestering, and a birthday around the corner, I was destined to own WoW. Destiny pulled through, and on July 4th, 2008, my 11th birthday, I was gifted my own copy of WoW. Shit was about to go down.
