Started 3 days later on the 14th, a Monday. Had no time to go to the shop(!) to pick the game up on Friday.
And I still play the Priest I created that day. Though she got a race change and a server trans since then.

And (after a reload to make the picture load) I do remember that screen. Pre-Launcher era install prompt after putting the CD(!) into the drive. I believe WoW had four of those.

And I wouldn’t get the game until that following July. 5 months to go 😛

I absolutely remember that screen. I still have my vanilla box. I still main the druid I created when I first started the game. (Friend tried to talk me into making a rogue instead, but I saw the night elf shapeshift in that intro movie and was sold.)

You forgot the N in Easter(N).

I will never forget that long run I had to make from Darnassus to Westfall for the Druid Seal quest. I don’t remember how many times I died between Wetlands and Ironforge, but it was A LOT.

Created my main that day. Still the main. Never even changed from Destruction. Same name and race as I played on the Beta.

Should’ve been shut down like 10 or so ago. r
You either die a hero or live long enough to become a villain.

I remember the game coming in 4 CD’s and you had to switch them out during installation. Fun days. The highlighted character in the screenshot were the Alt key shortcuts in windows installer. Alt+W to install.

I won the Collector’s Edition by entering a contest from a TV show. That’s how I got into the game.r

No CD switching for me. Had the game on DVD.

I opened the forum topic, and in a reply, linked the sound effect from that installer screen.

I got autobanned upon clicking “Reply”. For “violating the Code of Conduct”.

Another thing is that it was nothing but a link, and that youtube link included “0-G” and some numbers, but… is youtube a gold seller?

I’m so glad we don’t have to install from discs anymore

Oh, god, yeah. I still have, somewhere, a screenshot of my druid looking up at the gates of Ironforge that I took on the way. Different days… better, in some ways. The world certainly felt bigger.
