Are there any World of Warcraft players lurking about these parts? I actually just started playing the game last week and am so far really enjoying the experience, which is awesome as I never thought I would really "get into" a MMORPG. Was just wondering if there were any other fellow WoW'ers in the ranks here, and if so what kind of characters do you play? Also, what server do you prefer . . . PVP or normal?

I don't play it, but there have been a few members to talk about playing from time to time. Here is one such thread that may be of interest to you.

I don't really play WoW specifically, but I did for a couple of years. I enjoyed it as well, but just got a little old.


I played a Hunter, Paladin, Warrior, and Warlock substantially.

Normal is better if you're a first timer or don't really want to get attacked by higher level players frequently after you reach level 20. PVP servers are better if you feel like you want the extra challenge (or frustration) of leveling up under constant danger of being attacked.

That's basically the only difference. Some players (the least achieved in real life, in most cases) see getting to level 80 on a PVP server as sort of a thing that makes them better than others, so you'll get alot of elitists and brats on PVP servers.



I'm a little biased towards normal, though. smile

I'm taking a break from it right now. Thinking about getting a game card and loading it up again sometime soon, though. Highest for me is a level 74 Night Elf Hunter. I just hated only getting half a bubble of XP for each quest I did, though. Hah. I might reroll a DK on a different server if I start back up. The main DK quest was tons of fun.

I have a Blood Elf mage and Night Elf hunter going, depending on where I'm playing. But it will be awhile before I am a level 74. But I'm having fun 'loving' the critters. wave

Ahhh Night Elf Hunter! That is actually the character I am playing on the PVE server . . . however it will be years if ever before I hit the 60's / 70's range . . . but it is definetly a way fun distraction! I have always enjoyed Blizzards games though, and was a huge WC III fan, so to be able to play with the same characters in an open environment is awesome for me . . . actually cannot wait till they release their upcoming StarCraft MMORPG . . . *drOOl*

ANd I definetly have to say I enjoy the Hunter far more than the Mage . . . I always intend to be a pure spellcaster however I find that I get bored easily just standing back and nuking stuff . . .

*shrug*

I am an altaholic. I have about 30 toons going. My highest is a DK at 64. My favorites are my rogues and priests. I never thought they would be but I have realy gotten into them. The main servers I play on are Ghostlands and Arathor PVE all the way.
I never thought I would like an MMORPG, but then at one time I never would have played an RPG. smile
If you're ever on Ghostlands I'm Kajis (DK) in the Born to Die guild.

Debra, son had a bunch of characters going, but then decided to just go with his 2 main. I know I can't keep more than 2 straight--I keep looking for a spell that the "other" one has.

We are on Burning Blade and on Draka. I'm more comfortable on the PVE but my son has assured me that if someone decides to make my life miserable by following me around and killing me that he can take care of it.

But so far, I'm too low a level for anyone to care about. lol

Catbelly, I love the game. I have several characters. Most of them are on a PvP server (Burning Blade) because that is where my kids play. But Soot and I also have characters on a PvE (Draka, no getting jumped by other players, heaven) server.

There are a lot of very nice folks playing and there are some jerks. Unfortunately, you meet and remember the jerks and you hear more about the jerks.

It is very helpful to play with someone who has experience. There is a lot of information and it seems incredibly comples (at least to me), but the learning curve is pretty gentle, I think, especially if you play with a friend.

WoW is such a big game and so multifaceted that you really can play most of the game solo. There are parts you can't do alone (raids, instances, arena teams) but I'm not interested in those and they are not necessary, though you can get some good gear by running them.

In some ways it is like a Sim. You have to have a way to make money to train and gear your player.

You can have up to 10 different characters on one server and you can have characters on several servers.

Obviously, you have to pay every month in order to play which is what kept us from playing. I was worried we'd have to pay for 2 accounts (me and Soot) and not get our money's worth, but that has not been a problem.

If your really want to play, then PM me and we can get you on our PvE server and then we can quest together. wave

Yes they are Marie.

Sometimes we play with our sons or their friends, and holy moly, they jump and spin and zip zip zip zip around. When Soot and I play together or alone, the pace is much more leisurely rotfl

Hey Looney. Thank you so much for your info and for being there. I would love to have you be my wingman (lol) so to speak while I get my feet wet. smile I'll re-install the game tonight and will PM you soon so we can set up a time for us to hook up. I have to warn you I am a very newbie-newbie---I never got beyond running around a small area. lol So I have lots to learn, but am willing. smile

Oh, btw, I know that there is a dark side and a light side, and I played as as one of the undead so I think I was in a different section than you guys. I'll make my new character one of the Horde gals so I can be in your area. (then when I know what I'm doing I'll sneak over and do an undead character on the dark side---mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!)

Thanks again Looney,
Cat

Cat, we'll need to be on the same server in order to play together. Hubby and I play as Alliance (Light side) on Draka (PVE) and as Horde(dark side) on Burning Blade (PVP). You will either need to make a character on one of those, or you can tell me your server and I can make a character there and we can be newbies together.

PM or email me and we will work it out wave

Well, after many excursions and a few breaks here and there, I have returned to WoW. Announcing this a little late, mainly 'cause I now have an 80 Undead Mage on Burning Blade.

I wouldn't say I'm obsessed with it, but I've gotten the character some pretty good gear from Naxxramas so far.

Anyways, the character's name is Segador, if anyone wants to look me up sometime.

Grats, looney. Invisibility's great fun to use. Mages get all the cool novelty spells.

While checking out casual forums I ran into these posts on WoW. Welcome me friends, Im a fellow addict! I have toons on both Horde and Alliance. When Wrath of the Lich King came out I created a death knight. The first 10 quests for that class are awesome and totally different from anything you have so far done on WoW. I have pretty much played off and on for 4 years so am familiar with most things you guys may need to know. I have level 80 warlock, mage and death knight on Alliance side and a level 70 warlock on the Horde side. Thanks for the link to the other forum on this but those posts are a year old so Im not sure if some of the folks are still playing.

Feel free to pm me here or post on this forum if you need to know something you cant find elsewhere. Am currently playing PVE on Hyjal server.

Hi everyone,

I've been playing WOW for one year now. I have a lvl 80 Blood Elf hunter, lvl 62 Blood Elf DK, lvl 50 Troll rogue and a lvl 49 Tauren druid. The hunter I use mostly for farming items for my rogue and druid. When I reached lvl 80 I became bored with the game. Right now I'm playing my rogue and druid the most. My druid is feral combat and I love prowling up behind the bad guys. My rogue can stealth behind them as well.

My son and I play together on Blade's Edge PvE server.

Hi ya Spirit, I think we are all still playing.

You have a lot of 80 toons. We've had some 80's run body guard for our 40's for the Midsummer Festival and other 80's kill us and camp our bodies.

We have toons on Burning Blade and on Draka. My son who has been playing the longest loves the PvP servers so that is why we are there. After honoring and desecrating fires and being ganked and camped, I was so happy to be doing the tour on Draka (PVE). What I didn't realize was that desecrating the fire put our flags up. I didn't realize we had flags on the PVE servers until I was riding down the road and my life starting going down down down rotfl

Lindy, I love my hunter (45). She has an owl as a pet (my other love). My problem is I love all my toons--each class is so much fun as is each profession and don't get me started on the AH.

My druid is going balance 'cos I want a Moonkin. I'm getting ready to make a gnome deathknight on my PVE server just because that is such a funny concept, and I definitely want to play a rogue as every time one has PVP'd me, I died!

Hey Looney ~ Good to hear from ya. On the flagging during fire festival; theres a couple achievements im sure you are aware of. One is Honor the Flame where you travel to various locations (not capital cities of enemy) and finish the quest. In certain neutral towns Everlook, Booty Bay, Gadgetzan, Cenarion Hold and Area 52 there are both Horde & Alliance flames. If you time it right, you can honor your own faction flame and then extinguish the other which is close by; hop the bird or bat and be away before they know you did it; then land in your own territory somewhere and voila...flag will soon be gone. Theres a list in your achievement menu for Flame warden of Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms, etc.

Yep, that's why we have been traveling. Our problem is that we are now on Kalimdor where we just don't have many flight points and as we are Alliance on those toons, there aren't many to pick up lol

This is our first time going after achievements and we are having a blast. thanks

We have Horde on BB and Alliance on Draka. I much prefer Draka--I don't mind being killed but don't really see the point when a geared out level 80 kills my level 40. There is no honor and no doubt of the outcome, so why????

But, as long as they kill and go away I'm ok, but being camped gets my dander up and lands them on the Kill on Sight list lol

I keep telling my son that when I become a geared out 80 I'm going on PvP patrol to protect the innocent rotfl I'll still die, but hopefully the lowbies can get away puppy

Good Man! I never cared for pvp so i stay as far as possible away. The only exception is the daily Wintergrasp fishing quest which pops up about 1X per week in Dalaran. I wait til it is Alliance controlled and then fly up there from Dal. Incidently, sanctuary cities are no combat zones so you can go there while flagged and remain safe.
