What are some of your regrets in WoW?

Never managed to get that awesome weapon you wanted? Did you spend your raiding career in a role you despised or stayed in a guild that couldn't make it past the first trash pull in a raid to save their lives? Perhaps the PvP title you so coveted escaped your grasp, or maybe it was something not in game and leaned more towards the players that inhabited the world. Describe and share some of the regrets you have obtained throughout the years of delving into the world of Azeroth, also in an attempt to brighten the mood and keep the topic somewhat lighthearted, with the release of Classic do you intend to fulfill those lingering wants and desires?

I can tell you one of my greatest regrets is not starting WoW sooner, I started playing roughly 5 months after the NA launch as I had gotten the game for my birthday, and while that may seem an insignificant amount of time to some, you always want more of what you enjoy! Another one I have is loosing all of the screenshots and videos of my early days in WoW, yes I still cling to many of the memories, but having a visual for some of those events would be so much more gratifying.

Not pushing Arena or RBGs harder.

I was 110% in on Vanilla and got just about everything accomplished that a Priest could want during that time frame.
I do regret giving my 2nd (Rank 11) account away from Vanilla though. I dont have any of that awesomeness on live right now.

No regrets.

Edit:
On second thought - I remember once rolling need on one of the Dal'Rend swords as a noob hunter.
When people (rightfully) lashed at me I felt very embarrassed.

I wish WoW hadn't stolen my teenage years from me. Oh that's not what you meant.

I wish I had not been such an alt-aholic. I didn't have a 60 until just before BC.

I wish I had started earlier. I remember when runescape was the game everyone played and would talk about at the bus stop for school.

One day one of our friends talked about this new game that just released and was way better than RS. Me and the other guys stuck to our guns and ribbed our buddy over leaving RS for this new scrub game.

A few years later I was introduced to WoW for the second time and gave it a shot. Wish I started at release ever since!

My biggest regret is clearly the fact that I lost all my screenshots. Beside that, nothing really as I was just too young (13/14 yo) to regret anything :p

Biggest regret is that I started on a French server because a mate was on there. I speak a bit but not enough slang and defo not enough French gamer chat. Barely ever did dungeons/group stuff because of that. Was only in wotlk that I switched to English and actually played the game as it's supposed to be - with people! This is the main reason why I'm so up for Classic, it'll be almost like playing it for the first time

Two regrets :

First, despite a large number of kills, the eye of Sulfuras never dropped.

Second one is that I missed the opening of the Ahn'Qiraj gates, even though it was, apparently, a major shitshow.

Yeah I wish I had started earlier but actually knew what the game was about. I probably spent the first 3-4 months playing the game just constantly rolling characters, leveling them to 14 or 15, then starting a new one.

I wish I had found a good guild earlier / made more connections. Don't really have anyone in particular to play with now. It's funny because back growing up it made far more sense to make friends IRL because that's just what you do, so I only played WoW with those I met IRL. Now that I'm a college graduate whose gone off to work, only one of my IRL friends live close to where I am but they don't play WoW, and the connections to others have dwindled. That's partly why I can't wait for classic though, as the community will go back to the way it was and new friends will be made for everyone very easily. With the way the world is now and where jobs are it's funny how people no longer stay in their hometown (myself included) meaning that you either make connections online that you can always use, or try again and again IRL.

It was an absolute shitshow, and it was amazing fun. This should definitely be on peoples regret list if they missed it. I don't even know if I was 60, I think I was - but damn, it was mental/fun.

Playing too much in college and not socializing enough on the weekends.
