*My* Life in Azeroth

Continuing on with my "thinking about wow too much" line of thought...

One thing that is missing from World of Warcraft's armory and achievements and I believe Warhammer's tome of knowledge or Lord of the Rings Online's deed log are dates. Dates when you accomplished something. WoW's armory has your date of last logon. And Everquest's character sheet goes as far to show how much you've played.

But as far as I know there is nothing that shows a history of your character. And what I mean by this is, there is no easy way to tell a 4-year old WoW character from a 30-day old WoW character. There is no stardate for when you first looted a green upgrade, or when you killed the Baron within the time limit. Yes achievements are covering some of the bases here. But what about doing something pre-nerf or level appropriate, dates would take care of that.

Warcraft realms is the closest you'll come to having a time line.

There would be costs for maintaining that data I'm sure. And the risk of being able to stand apart due to time played is bad for overall business when it comes to recruiting players (Sure *you* have 150 AAs, but that looks like Mt. Everest to a new player). And...it's not something players have been clamoring for.

So maybe it's not such a great idea. I'm just an "old" player pining about the days when I first started playing. Ought Four 'twas.

Actually, I believe the WoW achievements do have dates tied to them. You can link your achievements in chat channels just like quests and items, and when you do it shows your name and the date of completion along with the description of the achievement itself.

I think it's a pretty cool system!

WOW Power Leveling

Yes! Your blog is great, and I know something about the night elves, they are the race I WOW power leveling when I get my first account:The reclusive Night Elves power leveling[ were the first race to awaken in the World of Warcraft Power Leveling. These shadowy, immortal beings were the first to study magic and let it loose throughout the world nearly ten thousand years before Warcraft I. The Night Elves' reckless use of magic drew the Burning Legion into the world and led to a catastrophic war between the two titanic races. The Night Elves barely managed to banish the Legion from the world, but their wondrous homeland was shattered and drowned by the sea. I love this race and suggested everyone that start their WOW power leveling a rogue or druidof night elf

Your site is great, I cud tell something about the [url=http://www.igset.com]tyrande whisperwind[/url] and [url=http://www.igset.com]WOW night elf power leveling[/url]:Millennia before the Great Sundering, Tyrande Whisperwind grew up as the childhood friend of [url=http://www.igset.com]Malfurion[/url] and [url=http://www.igset.com]Illidan Stormrage[/url]( I started my [url=http://www.igset.com/wow-power-leveling.php]WOW power leveling service last year, with our help, you could kill Illidan one day and get his swords). One day Malfurion came across several legends that referenced a reclusive demigod of the forests. Malfurion had always had great reverence for the natural world, although the [url=http://www.igset.com]night elves[/url] as a race had long since abandoned any interest in such matters. He shared the legends of Cenarius with [url=http://www.igset.com]Illidan and Tyrande[/url]. The three night elves decided that it would be an exciting adventure to search for the demigod, though in truth they no more believed in Cenarius than the rest of their people did. The laughing trio was shocked into silence when Cenarius stepped out of a shadowed thicket and offered to teach them the druidic arts. They accepted eagerly. [url=http://www.igset.com]Malfurion[/url] proved a quick and talented student, but his brother was clumsy and quickly grew impatient. For her part, Tyrande was glad to learn what she could from Cenarius. Nonetheless, she was already a novice in the Sisterhood of Elune and so had dedicated herself to the goddess above all others. Malfurion alone would go on to become a [url=http://www.igset.com]WOW druid power leveling[/url].
