I have a friend. A friend that wants to play WoW. A Female friend. How epic is that? We both rolled new toons. She made a lock, I went priest. Good stuff. We are both currently level 10. I will likely buy classic WoW for her account. That way she can get to 60.
I really want 4.0 to launch though. Would make that leveling so much more fun. I would want to play hunter though! Oh well. When it launching she might be interested in leveling another toon as well.
I think Warlock is a good first class choice for her. It's a rather basic class to play. With a warrior I think she would of had a harder time.
