My Massive Multiplayer Online Gaming Career spans over ten years and more than ten online worlds. As near as I can remember, this is how it went.

  • Foton’sPriest, level 70 human priest on the same U.S. PVE server, aliases: The Alt, The Main Alt, Foton’s Cleric. RETIRED: February 2008 because Flash Heal is so pre-BC.
  • Foton’sWarlock, level 70 human warlock with massive OPness, excess Auction House inventory, runecloth netherweave bandages. Hell, he’s just all about the OPness now.

  • Foton’sDruid, level 20-ish fruity night elf druid, herbs and extra potions
  • Imagine at least 5 other alts created solely to hold crafting materials and quest items because that’s how stupid this game was/is with bag space. Maybe always will be.
