People in Wildstar forum were talking about (the more hardcore MMMOers complaining really) that World of Warcraft was too easy. So I though I finally give that game try. Turns out they have a free version which lets you play up to level 20. After WS, WOW does seem very easy at least in staring areas.

I was trying out a goblin warlock when a GM came in chat to welcome me and asked if I had any questions. I did. My quest cliched. I think you cant go from being in car to control robot. GM said to abandon the quest and retake it. That worked.

My first WOW character: Qazari: Alliance: male Draenei Shaman - yes name recycled from one of my SWTOR characters.

My second WOW character: Yulyadya: Horde female Goblin Warlock - also recycled name from SWTOR character.

Jaivyn: Alliance: male Human Paladin - Afican for "light spirit"

Cereneril: Horde: female Blood Elf Mage - WOW name generator web site supposed to refer to fire.

Merilinor: Aliance: male Night Elf Druid

My ugliest character: Kumori: Horde: male Undead (Forsaken) Rogue - one of several Japanese words meaning "shadow"

Lykaoun: Alliance: male Worgen Hunter - misspelling of Lykaon meaning "little wolf" since Lykaon was already taken

Lykaoun when he's not transformed

Tanox: Horde: male Tauren Warrior - built in random name generator

My cutest character: Raiini: Alliance: female Gnome Priest

So I have one of each class except Monk (requires Mists of Pandaria) and Death Knight (which start at level 55. Missing races: Alliance: Dwarf and Horde: Orc, Troll and Neutral: Panderen

I'm not necessarily going to keep all those characters. I just made them to try the classes. The Worgen starter area seemed harder than the others or maybe I'm just bad at Hunter, because I actually died several times. I think I'm deleting that character.

Oddly enough the Starter Edition will let me make a pandaren, just not a monk, says monk needs the Mists. It also shows death knight as a class I can make which is odd because it starts at level 55 and the SE only lets you play to level 20.

Every time I log in I get a screen offering me a deal on the full game, I believe Mists is extra though, but I won't to try out the game some more. Its a good deal to upgrade, reguarlly $19.99 on sale for $10.00. Mists I think is still full price though.

Yehtzu: female Pandaren Hunter, replaces the other hunter I deleted - Chinese for "coconut" (no good reason, just hard to find Chinese names not already taken). I love that she has a vicious turtle pet.

The pandas are fun, and usually, hunters are a great beginner pet as you can send your pet in to tank while you range. wave

This character replaces Tanox Chuugra: Horde: male Orc Warrior

Qazari has learned Skinning, Leatherworking, Fishing and First Aid. Haven't found anyone to teach cooking yet. And cant find any linen cloth so cant make first bandage. He has made himself some chest armor, bracers and a cloak. Next quest will reward him with equally good boots. So if he make boots would sell them.

I guess I should give Yehtzu the same professions plus cooking as soon as I find someone to train in that. Or I could try Alchemy.

Guybrush, when your are choosing professions, each one has a kind of bonus so you might want to consider those. For instance, Alchemists potions last twice as long on themselves, and enchanters can enchant some of their own equipment which can't be enchanted for anyone else. I just chose what I wanted to do, but more serious players who want to maximize their characters take those bonuses into account. wave

I also found I could just have one character cook for all my guys. puppy

I went with alchemist just to be different. You mail stuff to other characters? Right now I cant use the mail. One of the restrictions on the Starter Edition.

Free to level 20 after that no experience gained.
Cap of 10 gold (yeah right, I'm terrible at money management)
Can't start a chat except in /say, can only respond to whispers, if someone talks to me first I can reply but can't start a conversation.
People higher than level 20 won't hear the say or any emotes I do.
Cant use mail
Can't form a group
Can't join a guild
Can't create a guild
Can't post on most battle net WOW forums (new player one is an exception)

There's a cap on crafting too but I forget what it is.

The Starter Edition keep tempting me with $10 purchase offer (not including Mists which I think is $20) but that would start subsription, after a free 30 days.

Goblin starting area is crazy. Seems like goblins not yet officially members of the Horde or Draenei the Alliance and of course Pandaren start out neutral as well. My Dranei just met some Alliance member night elves and goblin just met some Horde member Orcs. So they're on the way to joining. I figure those two opposite opinion pandaren NPCS are meant to be hints at the alliance and horde philosophies.


Jaivyn has learned Blacksmithing and Mining.

Yes, you mail stuff from one character to the next and you have to be in town to pick up mail.

Yep, it is fun to be able to choose your faction.....that was something that was added later wave

I made a dwarf. Kind off odd to see all these NPCs with Scandinavian names but speaking with Irish accents. I named mine Anvindr, same name I gave a Norn in Guild Wars 2, which is supposed be from the Norse. Replaces human paladin

Only a dwarf could fit 3 cegs of beer in his backpack (lol),

My Draenei reminds me of Dracula so I think it would have been a good voice for the Forsaken.

Merilinor the druid has reached level 10 and gone Feral, because I enjoyed cat form so much. Though I found a very effective chain is to start in normal form (night elf in his case), use Moonfire to start over time damage, than switch to cat, Rake to start bleeding than switch to bear to Maul because it does extra damage to bleeding foe. Enemey still alive, rinse and repeat.
