World of Warcraft

So who here plays this Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game? I got an account a few months ago but never got it set up. I know a few people on the forums play this game. Discuss your experiences, post your server, your toons, etc.

Re: World of Warcraft

I played pretty much all summer but then the "real world" set in and I had to stop. If your looking into buying this game I'd actually reccomend not to. It's really fun...but too fun. You get addicted trying to 'beat' the game, but in reality it's impossible, you can always do more and you'll never stop. Seriously this is addicting, don't take it lightly.

Re: World of Warcraft

I am currently trying out the hazardous combination of World of Warcraft and medical school. So far both are going well... I started playing on official servers only a month ago, so my Troll rogue (I've known Warcraft since I was 5, and I've always been a big Troll fan ) is only level 20. I play on a French RP server, the Sentinels.
Although my main is only lvl 20, I know quite a bit about the game, but that's because I've played for over a year using rather illegal means I will not expand on.

I just can't make money though. I mean it. How do you people do it ? Seriously... I put a lot of stuff in the AH, but as soon as I get the silver by mail I spend it all on my profession and upgrades.

Re: World of Warcraft

I need a life outside of Warcraft. Sad thing is, I'm in better than T4, or at least some of my gear is better.

Re: World of Warcraft

Well, I played it for a few months but stopped and went straight back to DaoC. A MMORPG must have PvP or in this case RvR for me to be any good and WoW just doesn't has a good concept on that.

Azuremyst server.
68 Night Elf Druid and assorted level 30s

I pretty much just solo. So the more rare items I probably won't see.

The Outlands expansion are amazing! (And flying mounts YES!)

Looking to see what they do with the next expansion and the introduction of the Hero class the Deathknight.

I was disappointed when Blizzard announced only one Hery class per expansion... I thought there would be a bit more. I'm just too eager to discover new classes...

And while we're at it, here I am. Not much for now, but I'm very much of a casual gamer. Sure, I'm a nerd who always stays at her computer, but I also like to do other things, not always playing WoW.

Lol you're level 20 right now, so im guessing wool is coming in pretty nicely? Get a buddy to run you through vc a couple times, and just collect all the wool... sell the stacks for approx 70s each (depending on ure server prices)

As you level up move onto silk, a 1g - 2g each etc etc...

If that isnt your thing... go into tailoring. At your level just making 8 - 10 slotters will rake in plenty of money for equipment and or skills etc...

i've never had much of a gold problem in wow.. im usually the one who lends my higher level friends gold, (my main is only 33... go figure eh..)

Anyways yah, i play on the PvP server archimonde.. but with school and such have no more time for WoW.. i will probably pick it up again over the summer, buy 2 months worth of time and play it out over the summer then let it sit for another year :P

Re: World of Warcraft

I played from release day in November 2004 til May 2007. Quit when I hit 70 and saw that they were making raiding more based on 5man groups and smaller raid groups. I was always a fan of 40 man raids so that didn't really do it for me.

Thanks for the advice, but now I'm not as poor anymore. I just sell lots of random stuff at the AH, e.g. stacks of leather found by fishing, stranglekelp, cloth, ore, oily blackmouths and such...
Heh I think I'm going to sell my stacks of copper ore for more... Way too many twinks around, full of gold and eager to powerlevel their profession.

Re: World of Warcraft

I played the game 1 month...I got a Tauren Hunter to level 36. The first two weeks were fun but I got tired after a while. Its always the same thing ; go there kill x monsters and come back, get experience. I heard WoW is a good game when you really put a lot of time into it with guild mates etc. MMORPGs are not for me.

Re: World of Warcraft

After making fun of my friends who played the game, I finally downloaded the trial and started playing. I am a lvl 29 Night Elf Hunter at the momment.

Also if you are complaining about not having enough PvP action, I would suggest trying some of the battlegrounds, even at the lower levels they are what makes the game fun in my opinion.

Re: World of Warcraft

I agree, PvP is a very fun part of the game. Personally I don't play on a PvP server because I wouldn't like getting ganked all the time, but battlegrounds are lots of fun. World PvP in Outland is nice too, until the Alliance guy you've just slaughtered thrice brings in his little lvl 70 friends. Not fun anymore.

Then I suggest you reroll Alliance to take on Haala. That is if you play on Zangarmarsh where the alliance always control it.

But, I must say, the Horde do the same thing. They call their friends too so it's not a strategy that's foreign to either side.

Haha, I suppose so. While Outland World PvP can be attempted at any level, I think that ultimately it belongs to level 70s. I haven't been to Nagrand yet, I've just hit level 65 and I am currently finishing all the Terrokar quests I can do, so I don't know how Halaa is on my server.

By the way, I'd like to have you guys' (and girls' ) opinion on this matter : I'd really like to have a Talbuk mount, but which way is it easier / less tedious to get ? Exalted with the Kurenai/Mag'Har or Halaa marks ?

Re: World of Warcraft

Depends how active Halaa is on your server. On mine, it's pretty dead most of the time, so the rep grind would be faster. However, if Halaa is active all the time, then your best bet would be Halaa marks.
