Doc, sometimes it is hard to find your way around on the minimap. Don't forget you can look at the big map too-sometimes that helps.

I have a hard time seeing that arrow too--I wish it were red or orange or something.

It's easy to train a pet--you get the skill and put it on your hot bar. Then go find the animal you want. Target it and click on your train animal. Have your friend heal you, but no one can do any damage to the animal while it is being tamed or it won't work.

After he is tamed, then you need to feed him and you will need to feed him periodically to keep him happy. What level are you on?

Ah ok since you say its ok to recommend a help site for WoW then I strongly reommend Thottbot.com and WoWwikki. Both are excellent.

Anyone whos interested in trying out the game for fun can download a free demo of the single player game WarcraftIII. There are many quests to complete plus building your village and army; as well as a dungeon to explore to rescue 10 prisoners you play as Thrall, the Orc Chieftain. The game is rather old and does overhead 3rd person views but hey its free ! The demo will easily take you 10+ hours to finish....Happy Hunting! lol

Oh yeah, Middle son has played WoW since the beta and finally seduced Eldest who know has one 80 and one 62 and one 44 and digs deeply into different specs, etc.

I'll have to look for those videos puppy

Does anyone know how to chat/type faster? People seem to be able to fight and chat at the same time. Is there a trick to this or an addon I'm supposed to have?

Debra,

I agree with you about people fighting and chatting at the same time. How do they do it. One time I was is a group where a couple of players they got into a heavy discussion that had nothing to do with the game, but they were fighting and typing fast. It was a distraction because I just wanted to stop and read what they were saying. I really wanted to just tell them to let it be untill later. Another thing I'm having trouble with is the chat abbreviations that is used. Is there a web site that can help me out? I know alot of it is young players that have cell phones and are use to texting. Not me.

Now I have a question for the people that heal/rez players. Do you have what is called a heal/rez button that can do this quickly. I have read about it, but have seen nothing about how to set it up.

install the mod HEALBOT get it at cursegaming or wowinterface... it will change your life if you are a healer. (it is not a bot or illegal.. in wow a good healer is called a healbot)

wowhead has all but replaced thottbot. It is wowhead and wowwiki for all your needs and bosskillers if you are a raider.

For those that think wow stinks... .. you have no idea lol
(this is just a few bosses of the new 25 man.. and not even some of the really good ones)

Debra, I just think it's experience. Both boys can carry on a vent conversation, a typed conversation, and fight or heal all at the same time.

But, they grew up chatting on the net while carrying on conversations at home while watching tv, so .......

If conversations are bothering you, you can add those folks to your ignor list, but then you won't be able to see anything they say.

I just open my combat log instead of my chat window when I don't want to see the chat.

Lindy, I have no idea, but am betting someone will.

aNew welcome to GameBoomers. Son uses wowhead also. He likes some of the info at thotbot and some from wowhead. He also likes to read at Elitistjerks.

The great part of gaming is that there is something for everyone. wave

Lindy, there's an addon for WoW called Healbot, in which you can click the screen and it automatically prioritizes everyone in your group and heals accordingly. I don't know how to set that one up, however.


I guess in theory you could make a macro to target the nearest dead friendly player and resurrect them, but I wouldn't know how to do that either. The only thing I've ever made macros for is for targeting a rare creature spawn.


Also, Debra, Looney's right. It's just practice and multitasking. I can do it when I need to, but it's hard sometimes.

Thanks everyone. I'll check out Healbot.

NewHobby those vids are great. I can't even imagine what it is like to be in a group of 25 or even 40. Knowing me I would probably get lost and left behind. I have a hard time keeping track of people on the mini-map.

Lindy, I have a hard time keeping track of everyone in instances. Middle son is always showing up in a new face, and so does his girl friend and then usually we pug someone.

So now I have son put a raid icon on his head so when he yells "Mom, go bear and get this thing off of me" I know who "me" is. I would be soooooo confused in those huge raids. rotfl

It's nice though that you can't harm the friendlies wave

I have a demo disc, but I'm used to Guild Wars' no monthly fee policy (not that it saved me any money what with buying extra character slots, unlocking all the skills and buying extra storage space). Besides I don't have time for real world work, GW and WoW. And Guild Wars 2 is going to come out someday.

I just deleted my Guild Wars healer. He got killed, losing Survivor 2 title (getting to level 20 without getting killed earnss Survivor 1, getting to level 2 is a whole lot harder). Anyway its a whole lot easier playing a smiter monk than a healer.

I don't mind the chatting it's just that I can't run and chat. Maybe if I use numlock to just run then I could do it. I'm gonna try that.
About the abbreviations- the Wow forums have lists of them. Go to the forum section for new people called WoW Getting Started then search for abbreviations. I copied and pasted it to a Word document so I can keep it when I'm playing.

Guybrush, I hear you on that time thing. I'm always complaining that the real world thinks it should come before gaming.

Poor healer. He gets killed and deleted in the same day rotfl

Debra, auto run sure is great though you have to be careful that you don't get too involved in what you are typing and run off a cliff. I only say this as I have indeed done it--splat--dead---long run back to body.

Another way to run/chat is when you are grouped with someone is to right click on their portrait. You will get a menu select follow and this free's up your hands to type. This is great if they know where to go and you can't lose them. I do this when I'm playing with my son. I just sit back and type away. I don't know how he types back when he is running need to ask for his secret.

Yes do find out his secret Lindy!
Is anyone playing a Paladin? I got to 60 and now the quest for the epic mount. It's long and expensive and requires you to group with people for three instances.
After I got started and have invested 300g already, someone told me you could just buy your mount from the Paladin trainer at lvl 61. I am confused. Why would you have this quest for the mount but in one more level be able to buy one? I have scouted the WoW forums, but it leaves me just as confused. Can anyone enlighten me?

"Follow" is great, but be aware that it is easy to fall off. So, if you are sitting there typing that works well, but if you are away from the keyboard, for instance, following someone on a long run while you are getting snacks, you can drop off and the person you are following will not necessarily know.

I have a call in to my Wowpert about your mount quest.

I know with the Warlock, there is a quest which it used to be necessary to do and which can be done, but it is no longer necessary to do.

I'll let you know as soon as I hear back.

Edit: Expert called back and said, No you don't have to do it, and yes, it is really expensive. You can buy it from your trainer. luck

Debra, alot of things change because of the patches. They keep the quest in for people who "want" to do them just because they can. The next patch coming out in Aug. will change the mounts again. Players will be able to get a mount at lvl 20 instead of lvl 30 and the price will be cheaper. Flying mounts will be at lvl 60 not lvl 70, at least I think thats the way it will be. Its always a good thing to read the patch notes when they come out.

Yes Looney following someone can be dangerous to ones health and if they go over a cliff so do you.

Yep, think I've done that lol

I wonder if they will let you fly earlier in Northrend when the new patch drops?

I just got my flyer, but as I'm questing in Northrend and not Outland, I never get to use her. wave

I think you will be able to fly in Outland and Northrend because of the lower lvl 60 versus 70. The patch will also let druids change the look of the cat and bear form. Yay.

I doubt they'll change the Cold Weather Flying skill level requirement, Looney. But the good thing is it's (comparatively) inexpensive and you can get it at level 77 as opposed to 80. The Epic flyer is what kills you as far as price goes.

Lindy, it would be nice. puppy

H4, son agrees with you--he thinks they will keep it at 77 sad

Yes, that price is high--I'm planning on calling in all the gold I have "loaned" or else doing some serious farming!

Though son got a flying mount last night from a run.

Looney, that's pretty much what you have to do, haha. Of course all the daily quests at 80 give you somewhere between 13 and 15 gold when you complete them, so if you farm those casually you can get it without trying too hard in a month or so.

Still, 'tis tedious work.
