After playing World of Warcraft for four years, I am about to take on a challenge I haven't attempted since I first installed the game. I'm starting fresh. New server, new character, no heirloom items, no max-level sugar momma to help me out. Well, that last part is only somewhat true. I do have a death knight on this new server who has about 50 gold to help out. That's nothing compared to the thousands I usually have to spoil my alts.
Why am I doing this? I want to see all that the newly shattered Azeroth has to offer. I want to level at a normal pace so I can fully experience all the new quest zones. Being unspoiled, I will also have to learn how to fend for myself again.
I am not completely abandoning my grownup shaman, however. I really, really want the "What A Long, Strange Trip It's Been" achievement. So, during all holiday events, I'll be logged in on that character trying like hell to get it.
