Dynamic Duos

One of the great joys of WoW is how cou­ple-friend­ly it is. My wife and I are suck­ers for some coop­er­a­tive mul­ti­play­er, and we haven’t looked back since we set up her account. We play togeth­er all the time, doing dailies, farm­ing mobs, instanc­ing and raid­ing (although we’re learn­ing that being new par­ents isn’t real­ly con­ducive to raid­ing, so that’s trail­ing off). Also, lev­el­ing alts.

We have some expe­ri­ence lev­el­ing a num­ber of duos.

The Pleasant Surprise

In The Incred­i­bles, Dash is the young son who can run and move very very fast, like the Flash. There’s a scene where he’s run­ning away from some mer­ce­nary vil­lains, through a jun­gle. So he’s zip­ping between trees and jump­ing over logs, but his vis­i­bil­i­ty ahead is lim­it­ed because the jun­gle is so thick. Sud­den­ly the for­est ends and there’s a tiny bit of beach before a large bay of water, with him bar­rel­ing towards it far too fast for him to safe­ly turn away. Dash clench­es his eyes closed, expect­ing to wipe out spec­tac­u­lar­ly… and then opens them to learn that he can run across the water’s sur­face. Sur­prise! He lets out this mis­chie­vous, joy­ous, relief-filled laugh, then zips away. It’s a great scene. (Brad Bird for overlord)

In World of War­craft, my wife and I have had that laugh many times.
