WoW changed your life?

I know alot of WoW is corny and or edgy with it’s quotes but are there any quotes that effected you irl?

I know this might be a cheesy thread but mine would have to be:
“But the truest victory, my son, is stirring the hearts of your people.”

from the wrath cinematic.

What about you, anything that suprisingly inspired you either as a kid or even now?

Changed it in the way that I spend my free time but other than that not much.

But this thead did make me think of this (old) news article I read once

TL;DR:

Hans Jørgen Olsen, a 12-year-old Norwegian boy, saved himself and his sister from a moose attack using skills he picked up playing the online role playing game World of Warcraft.

Damn that’s insane, go him wth

Considering a huge failure/losee to be “merely a setback” is a definite positive influence tho

Not really, I just quote it half the time like:
“A turtle made it to the water!”
BURN IT!!
“Merely a setback!”
“YOU FACE JARAXXUS”

etc.

Would exactly say it changed my life but this is reflective of gearing up every season and bashing our heads against higher keys/new bosses or difficulties in raids:-

All the exposure to wow spiders has helped me get over the worst of my arachnophobia, i can now deal with small spiders and only freeze/freak at the mahoosive ones :dracthyr_hehe_animated:

Saame boat here, was really bad, used a bike shed with dead/small ones everywhere on the ceiling and stuff, problem is I was relatively tall so I had to crouch otherwise my hair would get in it and then I’d freak out. Nightmare fuel that was, but my arachnaphobia is thankfully residing.

Probably.

Think of all the more productive stuff I could’ve done instead!

get an emulator and play eye of beholder 1. the 3rd level helped me a lot. now spiders never bother me anymore.

What you’re saying doesn’t make any sense , you don’t know what your future would have been if u didn’t play wow or played another game .

Impossible to tell if u have done something more meaningful than platying wow .

A quote? No.
The game itself? Absolutely.
There was a long time where i felt lonely. I had people around me but no friends, no one i could be me with.
When i started WoW it gave me some escapism from it, while over time it brought me in contact with all kinds of people that i never would have met otherwise. One of the most important people i’ve met was my wife back in 2012.

I joined her guild back then and started playing with her and talking over skype. At the end of 2013 we decided to meet up and i flew to Sweden in December of 2013. I was not prepared(I guess one quote applies :joy:) for the cold weather in Sweden and stood there freezing my butt off at the trainstation in jeans, a shirt and sneakers. 3 months later i decided to give up everything i had in my own country and move over to her. We’ve been living together ever since and are currently engaged and we got 4 kids.

Mostly mine comes down to Quoting too.
When anything bad happens, I just tell my friends ‘At least I have chicken…’

I mostly learned English by playing the game.

This game also taught me that I enjoy annoying people a lot.

Now I like if the orc does a fart , before I am afraid of him . Now he is O K
