The header picture is of my Shaman in World of Warcraft. I made her with the launch of The Burning Crusade because of course I made a Draenei Shaman; it was just what you did. She was meant to be a bottom-tier character whom I occasionally played, not a priority. Years later, I’ve been playing her consistently as a main and my first character to the level cap for every single subsequent expansion to the game. She stuck with me; I stuck with her.
Some characters get that coveted “main” status for a little while, but some manage to be our stalwart main characters for years on end, fixtures of our gaming worlds. So what MMO characters have you stuck with for years? Are they old favorites, or just characters that always avoid getting deleted even though you rarely play them?
