The Joy of Azeroth Shared, of Enduring Love and Gut-Wrenching Loss - One Man's Story

The Joy of Azeroth Shared, of Enduring Love and Gut-Wrenching Loss - One Man's Story - World of Warcraft - MMORPG.com

Get a tissue. Don't say you weren't warned. The World of Warcraft US forum has a new post called "I may be done". Of course, most reading the title would assume it's another QQ post about someone rage-quitting WoW. However, it only takes reading the first paragraph to realize that this is something utterly different, heartbreakingly sad and that there are real human stories behind the avatars we run into every day in the MMOs we play. Perhaps it's the latter that's most important of all.

She loved World of Warcraft. Perhaps I did too, but it was mostly my love for her that drove me to continue adding expansions I could no longer fully explore since raids and pvp and many of the things I once enjoyed were beyond my declining abilities.

I cancelled both of her accounts less than thirty minutes ago.

Sharley will no longer be running beside Acktion.

Lubov will no longer be guarding Panaceah.

All of the characters I have built specifically to run amok with my beloved are now as alone as I am in this home we once shared.

You can read the rest of Acktion's post on the World of Warcraft forum and add your thoughts to the thread. But before you do, go tell someone you love what they mean to you. You'll be glad you did.

Rest in the Light, Sharley.

Have you shared Azeroth with someone special? Tell us your stories.
