Over the past month, I’ve been chronicling how I started adventuring on a brand-new World of Warcraft account after gifting my old one to my wife. It’s been bizarre to let go of an account I’ve had since 2004 and start completely fresh. For the most part, it’s been a lot of fun, mostly because I do like the starting-from-scratch feeling and have gotten over being way too attached to characters.
That said, there are some things I miss that I wish I had. Mostly this falls into the realm of certain unlocks (like going through the mailroom quest to get Katy Stampwhistle or unlocking flying and allied races everywhere) and some beloved pets and mounts. RIP, Grove Warden! We had many great rides, you and I!
So for today’s discussion, imagine that you had to completely start over with a brand-new account in your MMO. What would you actually miss the most from your old account and why?
