The kids and I never dreamed of of having high level characters when we began World of Warcraft characters together. We were watching Charmed DVDs together at the time and decided to create 3 caster sisters to adventure together and the Chilli sisters were born. So the Blood Elf Mage, Warlock and Priest set out to explore Azeroth doing as many dungeons as we could given our caster group. We played in pockets, diving in a little more when school holidays would come around.
Well this school hols the final step was taken, the original Chilli's hit 85. Having never had a max level character in any game, this was quite something for me, but all the more impressive that we did it together. Along the way we have plenty of other characters that adventure together in various ways, questing and instancing plus doing trades along the way (I enjoyed maxxing Herbalism and Alchemy).
WoW has proved to be a remarkable gaming environment, catering to all manner of play desires and allowing our casual group to progress and enjoy the experience as a little family. Blizzard have done a super job of crafting a game that continues to grow and draw us in.
I think what I will do next is a few drawings to celebrate the 3: Alichilli, Nachilli and Kischilli.
In the meantime, here are some official promo images for the 4.3 expansion as the Cataclysm storyline continues to unfold - I think the team does a great job of injecting so much quality into an engine with such a low polycount and tech bar.
