So, I’m finally getting around to Spellbound’s 20 Day Blogging Challenge. It’ll be great because it’s all about MEEEEE! 🙂
Hi, my name is DarthRegis and I’ve been a WoW-aholic for about five years now. Technically longer, but I didn’t really take to the game the first time around. The name “Darth Regis” has been around for over ten years now, going back to when I played a lot of CounterStrike. It was inspired by a name that Pacheco‘s husband came up with while we were in the same CS clan. (A couple of other close friends of ours pick up their own Darth [talk-show host] names as well.) So, yes, the “Regis” part is reference to Mr. Philbin, although there is absolutely no resemblance whatsoever.
Anyway, as for WoW, I picked it up because those CS clan friends of mine played the game and I followed suit, signing up probably around April-ish 2005. I made a night elf priest. That first character didn’t last past level 16 because the group made a switch to the Horde. That’s when I made my first DarthRegis. A Forsaken Mage. He made it to level 14. By that time, those same friends were getting a little frustrated with the grind and started playing a lot less. So I got bored and quit. Both characters still exists, but for no apparent reason.
Then several months later… I’m going to say November-ish of the same year, those friends and myself picked up the game again. This time on a different server and still playing the Horde. That’s when I made the character we now love and know as DarthRegis. My Troll Mage.
Since then, my subscription has been continually renewed. Alts have been made. Alts have been deleted. But all have the “Regis” part to eliminate confusion as to who the alts belong to. 🙂
There. I’ve been introduced.
Here’s a song for you:
