Meat-Vendor’s prompt for Day 1 of the 30 Day Challenge is the simple question:
Alliance or Horde?
Since the later half of Wrath of the Lich King, I have been an Alliance member, and mostly a Draenei. Yes, yes, I am Wrath Baby. Be gentle.
The Draenei are my favorite race – I love the race, the classes, and especially the lore (what little there is, because I happily fill in the blanks in my stories). I originally started with a Night Elf Druid, because at that time (“back in my day…”) the free trial only included Vanilla. But after my first day, I was hooked, and I knew I wanted to be a Draenei Shaman.
The next day, I bought WoW and BC, and Effraeti was born!
I have been mainly Alliance since. My first max level Horde was a Tauren Pally back in Cata who later became a Draenei. Then, I faction changed my Hunter, so I could at least run old content with Horde friends. She has since been leveled to 90, as well.
More recently, I have been drawn more and more to the “other side” by my boyfriend, who mostly plays Horde now and runs a guild there. Because of this, my Tauren Monk, Leilae, was born. Eventually she will be 90.
I have always raided on Alliance. Most of my raiding has been on my Shaman, Effy, but through most of Mists it has been my Monk, Ireenia. It has only been within the past month I have quit raiding.
Because of my love of Draenei, especially considering all the time and effort I invest in my stories of Effy, I do not see me ever going to Horde exclusively. Without raiding, though, I suppose anything is possible. Besides, perhaps I do need some Horde-based stories…
But still I say: For the Alliance!
