I was such a noob when I started, I ...

I was lucky enough to have RL friends to listen to, and I spent a LOT of time soloing, both of which helped me keep my learning curve private, in early BC.
But it's still upsetting that agility doesn't help my toon get up steep hills better than without it.
And O Dear God why can't I skin Murlocs?
I took it out on dragonkin later. Dragonkin are like one-stop shopping: silver, cloth, AND leather. Heh.
...tried to find a way into Mulgore on foot because I didn't know anything about zeppelins. Worse, the most obvious entrance seemed to be the gate on the east side, so I was trying to navigate the Southern Barrens without even having reached level 20... and when I got there, I found that the gate was locked.
...thought that getting anything good from the Darkmoon Faire would take years because I didn't know anything about profession quests or Darkmoon artifacts. I could only see the games and Test of Strength.
...was amazed by the level 85 characters who were walking around in full purple gear. They must have been
players, the best of the best!
I started playing in Vanilla, just before BC came out, and wasn't even 70 when WotLK arrived.
From about lvl10 I used to trawl the ah for greens. I would buy, for my mage, all sorts of different gear because I thought I needed to balance my stats as they were int-heavy. Agi staff, str rings, all that sort of thing.
I would get lost exploring anywhere and everywhere, the non-instance area in front of DM's was always a good one, and the bit in front of BFD.
The obligatory confusion with the need/greed system (I took over a year to figure that out, I didn't do dungeons at all just because I didn't get it).
My original char, that mage, still has leatherworking/enchanting.
I used to /lol @ all the lvl80's that would sit on their mounts outside the bank in IF and /say "Damn, I can't wait until I'm lvl80 so I can sit in Ironforge all day t-talking shush it in /2!"
True to my word, at lvl80 I went and joined them. xD
At 80 I was such a nubchups I had no idea about rotations or gearing. I'd missed out on Naxx and Ulduar and dinged 80 at the tournament, while it was still under construction. A kindly guildie spent a good few hours explaining that I didn't need Fire Blast in my rotation just because it was instant-cast, I needed to use Arcane spells as an Arcane mage.
Stood in fire..... a lot.
Didn't have Ice Block keybound, or Slow Fall, for that matter.
I think it's safe to say that for the 1st 2 years of the 7 I've been playing this game, there was no bigger nubcake on Bronze Dragonflight-eu.
It may be worth mentioning (maybe not), I saw a post at the start of this thread, posted over 6 years ago, talking about not knowing about the Orb of Translocation in Silvermoon. I just found out about that 3 months ago. >.>
Chose my first character based on how pretty her starting outfit was.
Guilty as well.
..Didn't know instances were meant to be completed with a group. Didn't make the connection between instances/dungeons.
..Didn't realize that different classes required different stats, so I'd just get gear that increased the most stats, regardless of their relevancy.
..Was scared of selling things on the AH, so I sold all my herbs/ores to vendors. So much gold... lost...
..Couldn't figure out how to get into different chats like Trade or General. Thought you had to type /trade or /general first.
The list goes on and on. When I first started playing, I played by myself mostly so no one was there to yell at me haha
When I first started out, I didn't know you could revive your pet as a hunter.
So I leveled from 15 to 45 before my kind big brother asked me why I didn't have a pet active....
I leveled several characters to 50 and deleted them to start over, because I thought it would increase my stats-per-level with said class...
I didn't loot/use vendors until around level 70 on my first raid-ready character, because I thought it was useless to loot things I couldn't equip... On that note, I destroyed everything I couldn't use anymore.
Didn't get a professions before well into Wrath, because I thought it wasn't worth it to spend time "working" when I didn't even want to do my homework, lol...
... deleted my first toon (druid) because I could not survive the Orcs just past Lakeshire. (made a hunter instead)
... thought IF was a dungeon, due to the portals to and from the tram, from SW. Walked into IF for a few seconds and ran back out. I was so scared that mobs would come and kill me because I wasn't in a group.
... cried, REAL tears, when I had to release my
in lieu of
. (didn't know about stable masters)
... my hunter loved her
... repeatedly left guilds because people talked about their real lives in guild chat.
... I gave up on my first character, and Undead Warlock, because it kept dying in the stupid murloc village, around level 10. I thought I had to stand on his corpse to rez; didn't realize that I could be a safe distance away and still rez, so I died every time I'd rez. After a week (YES, 7 DAYS!), I deleted that toon and started a human lock, which I'm still playing almost 4 years later.
... thought the AH used real money, so I refused to even walk in the building.
... didn't find out that guilds were helpful until somewhere between level 40-50 on that first human lock.
... was scared to raid on my first max toon (at 85) because I sucked. Bad.
... couldn't tell the difference in a fire mage and a destro lock. Now I know that a fire mage is just a wannabe destro lock that can't handle the evil spells nor the power. <evil grin>
rolled an Boomkin in 2.4.
