Might be the wrong place for the topic, but I’m having doubts as usual.
I used to main a worgen druid on Silvermoon, it was my only real character. With the start of SL, I ended up transferring and swapping him to horde, to follow a guild I was in with the intention of actually raiding. It never really happened, and now said guild is slightly in limbo as well.
Over this time, I’ve made quite a few horde characters I really like, gotten a few to 60 too. But Elune be my witness, I miss my Worgen. Don’t get me wrong, I like the tauren I made, but I really vibed with being a worgen more. I’ve been considering my options, and am wondering if blowing another 49 bucks to go back to alliance on here would be a good idea, since it would seem I can’t ever get to do more than casual content anyway.
I like the idea of an RP server, I definitely don’t have many real connections to feel attached to in retail wow as it is. And even here, I’m sure if I really wanted I’d be able to do endgame content, if it ever got to that.
My problem, as always, stems from the issue I really want to play races on both factions, which always puts me in an undesirable position. My original worgen druid will always be my favourite, but I’ve grown attached to an orc DK I have, a highmountain hunter I’ve been leveling, a vulpera warlock, nightborne mage, etc. Most of my characters are not worth transferring, except my main and the DK as it is, but even then, it’s not negligeble.
Another problem I’d have is how most my names are inexplicably taken on here, even the less serious ones (surprisingly.) But all in all, I could rethink my race/class choices and still make adjustments. One of the bigger reasons I get attached to characters I come up with, aside from looks and general personality/backstory, is I guess names. Whomever took both Moousse and Mousse, I’ll find you >:(
Is it even reasonable to want to maintain both horde side and alliance side characters? The faction split has always found a way to foil my plans, and I can never settle down properly in big part because of it. Realistically, I want to eventually have 1 character per each class - but my Shadowlands goal is to have 4, one in each covenant and ideally 1 with each armor type, for easier tmog grinds.
