Top 14 MMORPG Icons of All Time
I'm not an expert on MMORPGs - I've played only about four major ones (and one of those only during Beta), and a handful of indie MMO's. I have to get all my World of Warcraft information vicariously. But I'm tuned in enough to get a good chuckle out of this list on Amber Night's site:
The Top 14 MMORPG Icons of All Time
The definition of "Icon" is a little bit on the fuzzy side. But hey, just smile, nod, and enjoy.
Would I add any to this list? I dunno, she's nailed them pretty well. Here's my candidate for #15:
Lady Vox, Dragon (EverQuest) - the first well-known "epic" raid-mob. Lord Nagafen shared her spotlight, but I think she was the first one raided - something like 3 months in, by a bunch of level 35's - 45's. They complained about her lame loot then, too. Much later, to prevent her from being soloed by level 60 necromancers, they put a limit on what levels were allowed to fight her.
I think I fought her twice. Got a nifty spear from on the very first try. Of course, by that time, I was so far behind the power curve that I was about the only person in the raid who actually WANTED the spear. But enh. It was fun.
