I....still play my first character. She's still my main. She's been through some stuff in her day. She started as a dwarf back in WotLK, then I went Horde because of some friends at the time, so she spent a while as an orc, a goblin. Then she traveled a bit, different servers, etc. Finally turned her back into the dwarf she started as at the beginning of Legion and she's staying that way. She's always been a dwarf at heart.

Unfortunately, I can't find any screenshots of her orc and goblin days. Due to computer issues, I've lost most of my older screenshots. But I did find these ancient ones from 2010....oh, times have changed. And yes, her name was originally "Tejon" >.< I can explain...

Outland Nagrand. Still a favorite zone

Shortly after taming Loque for the first time. I got better at screenshots over the years....

My first character was a nelf male hunter named Gormanghaste that I got to 40-something. At that point (for reasons), I made my current nelf female hunter main and stopped playing him.

I ended up deleting him to make room for a level 1 gnome for a guild Hogger raid. True story.

Later, I name my troll hunter Gormanghaste, who I maxed out for the first time in wrath. He's currently in his 100's.

My very first character was a night elf hunter, Vephriel (1.0). I'm not...the biggest fan of night elves in truth, but Teldrassil absolutely has that nostalgia factor for me so I have a fondness for it (and Darkshore). My boyfriend and I only rolled Alliance because that's what our friends were playing at the time. I think we got them into the late level 30s (which sounds like nothing these days, but in Classic it was a considerable amount of time spent, especially as newbies).

After that we shifted over to making some Horde characters and never looked back really. :D

My first character was, technically, called Krysteena as well, but I spelled it weird(er) and I honestly can't remember the spelling. It was back when I was 12 - I grew up in a family of WoW players and so, when I was 12, they let me make a character on one of their accounts and I basically ran around on pretty mounts in Ashenvale.

Then, once I got a bit older, I made my own account, and made Krysteena. From the days of Cata she has been my main and, up until recently, my only character. I very much doubt she ever won't be my main, since, for nostalgic reasons, I'll take her through content first. I feel like I can't just drop her as a character anymore, even though I tried to when I thought that I'd quit WoW when WoD came out. However, she bounced back again, and she's still my favourite.

My first toon was Nightzephon a moonkin. Back then when people saw a moonkin you got /hugs and people asking what the heck you were :lol: He's still my main, but once I saw I could get pets I made a hunter too.

Still have my first character, a Tauren Warrior. Other than a name change not much has changed outside level and gear. I don't think he's ever been to a barber.
