I was in a time of crisis after losing someone close to me and some of the members of my guild got me something to cheer me up and helped me through that situation. And I'm still in touch with them. =P
Nop..nop nop...this is one of the reason why human relationships are so bad at this hard times...cause making friends or even something "more" than that starts behind and pc...and thats a bad thing in my opinion..way to many reasons to be explained in a short post..ill just say ...think about it why its not good..(i have met my self few people from other games or even wow,that doesn't change my opinion at all,and it was under certain conditions) but +1 for the mount!
reconnecting with old friends from High School through wow years later has been an amazing thing.
I've been in allot of friendships during my time playing world of warcraft but my best friend was a guy nicknamed Kirbi we always did stuff together raids heroics pvp even going as far as doing 2v2 and ranking rather highly so after around 2 years learned he lives about 3 blocks from me so every week end i go over there and hang out even tho he no longer plays wow his still one of my best friends

My first toon was an Undead Rogue during TBC and I was clueless on how to play. My first WoW friend was a level 70 Undead Rogue as well and taught me everything. He spent days tutoring me and taking me on raids, telling our guildmaster that I was okay to go. He sacrified a lot of his time and sometimes his own reputation for me. I'll never forget his kindness or our misadventures. <3
Many of my friendships have come from guilds I have been in, lost contact with them before battle.net got implemented when they hopped servers and never saw them again. However managed to stay in contact with some guys who have similar professional backgrounds :D
Love the show Catfish!
2 of my guildmates (one in Canada, one from KY) fell in love and got married through our guild. They came by to meet me in Chicago when they were moving him to Canada, and they were amazingly sweet people.
I was 18 when I first met Tash, she asked to join our guild back in WotLK when we were raiding. We don't raid anymore, the guild has been through a crapload of stuff and has died off several times, but she never left. Most of the times it's just me and her online, and we have fun and laughs, duo old content for fun or transmogs, we send each other birthday gifts in-game, help each other with boosts and achievements, battle pets, rare pets, items, enchants, and many other things, and we are just basically a girl-powerhouse. The best bit? She's over 40 years old. She is one of the awesomest people I've ever met with a wicket sense of humor. We've never met in real life as we live many countries apart, but I'd love for it to happen some day. I'm 23 now and we've been in the same guild for 5 years, and still having more fun than ever.Good luck to everyone :)
I've met lot's of great people through my 9 years in WoW. Some last, some fade. It's not different from real life in that regard. Although the lack of face to face communication probably doesn't help. I have too many great memories of old friends in WoW.Good times.
I switched from Kael'thas Alliance to Wyrmrest Accord Horde many years ago, and one of my first friends there was a blood elf rogue that randomly happened upon my guild's roleplay in the Barrens. She joined our quest, and then eventually decided to join our guild. She became one of the most active members rather quickly, and eventually, the two of us took charge of the guild and led it through many months of roleplay. The guild finally died out, but we had added each other on Battletag and stayed in touch. She quit the game when she had too much in real life business to take care of, but decided to come back after once again seeing a piece of WoW art I made for her. We both still play together now, on Sentinels Alliance and Wyrmrest Accord Horde.
I gotta say the best friendship I made on wow was meeting my boyfriend.Was many many years ago during the end of vanilla. I decided to join this raiding pug with my priest, and over time I was brought back. Soon becoming a normal member. There was this one guy that I was jonesing for pretty bad. I never really talked on vent. I mean come on, you mention yer girl and people go nuts.. at least back then. :P But anyway, I spent a lot of time with him, and just started getting this insane crush. Was finally around the start of BC that I mentioned I was actually a girl.. He of course didn't believe me. Then he uh kept telling people I was a guy all the time. Drove me nuts, so one night during a karazhan run, I keyed up my mic and just told him off. EVERYONE flipped out.. And you'd think I would be mad at him but I wasn't. It just.. made the crush a lot worse. So we stayed friends for a long time. It wasn't until like 2 years ago that we really started getting more attracted to each other. And now we're dating, which is pretty awesome. I'm pretty sure this man is suppose to be my husband but, who knows. =p And shockingly.. I have blizzard to thank for allowing me to meet a kickass guy whom I love dearly.
I met my boyfriend through wow, who was the tank of our team! He was living in UK, I was living in Greece, so after months of talking we decided to meet in the middle for the first time, in Rome! I've never felt more nervous than that first day at the airport of Rome, trying to distinguish a face you've never seen before in real life amongst all the others! Everything went even better than expected, and now he lives in Greece with me! :)
I remember joining a pug back in Wrath. It was an alt run for a guild one of my friends was in. Apparently my performance was so good that I kept getting invited back. Soon I was grouping with a lot of well-known personalities on my realm and became friends with most of them. While some of these friendships lasted the expansion, a few endured, particularly a specific friend from the aforementioned guild who I (sort of) convinced to roll a Hunter and we occasionally ran instances and the like. He's one of the few people left on my friend's list who I don't also have as a Battletag who occasionally got on until Mists of Pandaria.There's certainly a lot more friendship stories but that's one that comes to mind.
I don't have a great friendship that started in WoW, but I used to play with one of my best friends. We've known each other since college, and meeting in WoW was a great way to feel like we were hanging out and doing stuff even when we were many, many miles apart. Sadly, she doesn't play anymore, but it was awesome while it lasted.
About 6 months ago, in a pug Throne of Thunder run, I casually mentioned that it was snowing really hard outside to the group, followed by one of the dps saying the same.I asked him where he was from, and guess what, he lives in the same city as me.I ask him what part of the city he lived in, and lo and behold, he lived about 4 blocks away from my house.We've been buds ever since.
I have been going to this little site called GAMBREAKER.TV for about two years now. Since GG was in his basement. Last year on the show Legendary Gary and the gang talked about starting a guild on as many games as they could and call it GAMEBREAKERNATION. I am happy to say that I am now a WoW NA Event Planner for the NATION. The first week we had our soft launch I met a fellow named Stucky. This guy started talking about his home town and I came to find out he lives about 3 minutes from me. Now I have a lot of friends that play from my town but to randomly have someone else join the NATION was pretty cool. Such a small world.
The first person I met in WoW was way back in Vanilla. I was just a week into the game, I was trying to find people to group up with me for some of those old group quest...... after hours I couldn't find anyone to do it. So I tried to solo it to no avail. Finally a Nelf druid comes along and offers his help, and we were able to defeat what at the time felt like an impossible en-devour. From there until about cataclysm we would raid together and do pvp and other such things. It was cool having someone to play with that I considered a friend. I feel like those kind of social connections are what kept me playing wow for so long.
I met my wife during Wrath of the Lich King. I have been playing since vanilla and she has been playing Burning Crusade on the same server. When she applied to the guild I was an officer in I flat out refused her application and argued to the other officers that she would be no good. They voted against me and invited her in. Well a lot of time talking together and a chance meeting from a 2 hour drive and we fell in love. Blizzard provided me with a legendary beyond compare!
