An introduction to Sara&Kleeyo's cast. No doubt the variety of characters will increase as the comic goes on, but here are the initial 3 who will appear throughout the series.

The only other MMORPG I played was ROSE online, there dps classes suffered incredible amounts of downtime between kills to the point where they were a burden to play, while self-healing classes, despite having lower DPS, leveled far more smoothly. So when I first picked up WoW in 2006, I already had my mind set that I wanted to play a self-healing hybrid class, which left me with just Paladin, Shaman and Druid. I wanted to play Alliance (from my Warcraft RTS game bias) as well as human, so the process of elimination was fairly easy. Saradenko (originally named Vgsatomi) was my main for four years, and raided as a holy paladin for three and a half years- up until the Great Holy Paladin Castration Patch of 3.3.2, where I promptly shifted main spec to prot and found out I enjoyed it a lot.

When it came time to roll my first alt, I already figured I would roll a Horde because I figured it would be beneficial to have a high level toon on both factions. I leaned toward wanting to play a shaman. At the the time only Horde had shamans and tauren was the only Horde race I liked. Also at the time, female taurens were probably the least played race-gender combination on the game. Thus was the birth of Kleeyo. On my first server, Veknilash-US, there was only one 60 female Tauren on the entire server. By the time I leveled Kleeyo from 1 to 60, she became #2. One peculiar thing about Vek was that the Horde was outnumbered over 3-1. There simply wasn't enough player base to support many large raiding guilds, so there were perhaps 2 or so 40 man endgame guilds while most everyone else was lucky to see anything outside Zul'Gurub. However the Horde had one valuable redeeming quality- they absolutely DOMINATED the server battlegrounds (this was before cross-realm BGs) as well as had incredibly short que times. So when it came time to gear up Kleeyo, I was really only left with one alternative- PVP. I quickly l discovered the shaman's versatility at taking on every other class, and my battleground playtime accumulated immensely. Of the five classes I've level to 80, shaman was, in my opinion, the funnest to play as well as the only one I developed enough skill in to hold my own against every class. I never originally intended on developing a PvP-only toon, but it was pretty much an unspoken and unavoidable destiny on vek....if you wanted to raid, you played Alliance. If you wanted to PvP, you played Horde. So if Kleeyo was to ever see epic gear, she had to knock around some Alliance skulls. Naturally all that changed for that server once Burning Crusade was released and the implementation of crossrealm BGs, paid server transfers and Alliance shamans/Horde paladins.

After Burning Crusade came out, dreanei quickly became a popular Alliance race to play. In my opinion the male dreanei models were the most hideous and malformed creatures every to step foot in Azeroth, however the female ones actually looked quite majestic. I wanted to try a hunter, who my hunter guild mates insisted was the funnest class out there, so thus was the birth of Jyosette. I do agree that hunter is one of the funnest classes to play. Jyosette became my raiding alt in Wotlk and saw a decent amount of content.

Exit question: What made you choose your particular race/class combination?

Which server do you play on?

Greetings, 2gcomic! Welcome to the site. My characters are on Blackhand-US. My account is currently inactive, though.

I picked a hunter because I started playing with a friend and we could only play together a couple of times a week so I figured it would be good to have a pet to help me out when we weren't playing together.

I almost always pick elf ranged classes to play in the beginning. Why? Tolkien. 'Nuff said :)

I'm an altaholic, but I chose them based on look and racials..and sometimes just cause I haen't played one of 'those' yet like my new dwarf pally.

I hear 'ya, there. I had 5 level 80s. Its fun playing the game from so many different angles. Just those 3 above were the ones I played with any sort of dedication.

When I first started WoW (Back when Battlegrounds were juuust implemented), I rolled a Mage because my roommate went with a Warrior. We were gonna travel together, blade and magic. I enjoyed being the glass cannon simply because I could dish out an incredible amount of damage to make up for my lack of health.

As the game expanded, I began to see that Warlocks... while not having good AoE or quite as much burst damage... had incredible surviability. I went Warlock next, and raided extensively in Northrend, before finally quitting when I got my first job.

Tauren hunter. Why? Because they get guns! :D Or they used to, pre-Cataclysm patch 4.0.1. When I started playing the game in '09 I was (and still am) working third shift, so I figured I'd be alone a lot, and the idea of a long-range support character able to hold its own for a short time in melee had a lot of appeal to me, and so hunter was a natural choice. Almost was a human warrior, though, as homage to my favorite Diablo II class (Barbarian), but in the end the cute tauren lady won out. NOW SHE WON'T LEAVE ME ALONE. She lives in my head, taunting me with repeated pokings from her over-sized hands!

I told you, I am not psychotic. I'm schitzophrenic: completely different!

Undead warlock because I started playing with a couple of my rl friends and they had rolled other class/race combinations (I originally wanted to go with an undead frost mage - Warcraft 3's Lich - but we already had one of those, so I went with the "born with magical talent" type). Second one was a Blood Elf Protection paladin, simply because it filled a niche in my guild's raiding needs and I was itching to play a melee caster tank (this was back in BC, when paladins still relied on magic to tank properly, none of that "hits the target with the shield" or "hit 3 times with your mace" stuff). Before I before became inactive (a few weeks before the Ulduar-patch), I had rolled a troll Discipline priestess, but not for racials or need, just for the fun of it. And it was, indeed, quite fun to play and role-play.

Goat from space.
That shoots fireballs.
That just sounded like the funniest/coolest thing ever. I ended up rolling frost though, because I wanted to be less squishy.

My first character was a Blood Elf Paladin. This was in BC, and I was a total noob. What I was looking for was something that could wear heavy armor, as well as cast spells and not have to rely on pure melee. Why Blood Elf? My friends were Horde...:P

I've played every class in the game, multiple times. Must say that my Holy Night elf Priest is by far my favorite. I origionally made her to fill a void in my guilds raids, she ended up becoming my main and the first character I got geared for PvP. I believe I picked Night elf because if the group wiped I could run around a corner and shadowmeld then come back and Rez everybody :P

Well, my mum introduced me to WoW. I just instantly picked blood elf because of their cuteness and I chose the hunter class like my mum. However, I like rogues better. Shame there's no class change...
