Me and one of my galpals thought it would be a good idea to get a mutual guyfriend into WoW. Big mistake.
He's not a bad guy but he's awfully passive-agressive and likes to guilt-trip people. Ever since he joined our guild on the Alliance side, he keeps whining about his lag. "Oh, I'm being killed by lag!" So my friend has to get on her lvl 42 warlock and run him through every fucking thing, including quests. If he was a cloth-wearer, I'd be sympathetic but he's a warrior for pete's sake.
I prefer playing Horde side but last night I got to feel my friend's pain when she tried to run my lvl 14 pally through Deadmines. Whiner decides to come along on his lvl 29 warrior and proceeds to run ahead and aggro every fucking thing, dying in the process. Despite being able to rez, I decide to just let him run back to his corpse.
It's gotten to the point where I don't want to play my pally on Alliance anymore and just reroll so I don't have to put up with Mr. WAAHMBULANCE. I mean, MMOs are supposed to be social but my friend hardly has time to level her own character because he wants her to run him through everything.
Maybe I'm a believer in tough love but I don't really think that powerlevelling your first, main character is a good idea. At least not for the first ten to twenty levels. When you're trying to get to 40 then it's great if friends want to help you reduce the grind of getting to your mount. I just hope he never comes over to play Horde because I sure wouldn't want him to annoy the people in my guild.
