I'm not sure about the unlimited access. We are limited to how much we can download in a 24 hour period...does that count? I will check it out and see if it even works for me. Looks like I have some company so have to go for now. I will let you know if I can get it to work at all. Thanks for all the info, wave

Yes, that is what I am worried about with satellite. We need some techie folks--I have no idea how much uploading and downloading I do when I'm playing WoW, but I would think it's a lot.

Maybe someone with more upload/download knowledge than I have will be able to answer that question for you.

Enjoy your company.

I don't know much about how your internet connection works, as I myself am on High-Speed Cable, but what I do know, I'll try to share.

World of Warcraft (and pretty much all other MMORPGs) use a system of "packets." This system is similar to mailing a package full of contents back and forth between two people. The WoW program you run on your computer is called the Client. Basically, it is your key to playing the game, since your computer would most likely crash if it held everything a WoW server did (think every item in the game, every enemy in the game, and every quest in the game).

To circumvent this problem, your client only holds about 10% of the information required to play the game. The other 90% is held on the server. Let's say for instance you're going to fight a wolf. You start the fight with Charge. Your client has just sent about 20 packets to the server, with which it responds with how much damage your character does, and how the wolf responds to your attack (this is the reason that when you lag, the damage you hit for does not show up immediately, because your computer has to get that information from Blizzard's server).

Obviously, the problem with a slow internet connection is the fact that the packets (incoming and outgoing) will travel substantially slower than they would on a high-speed connection. This basically means that after you click a spell, it could take up to 20 seconds for it to activate and trigger, versus a fraction of a second on a high-speed internet connection.

The first thing I would recommend is downloading the trial. If the game is lagging awfully (you'll know it when you see it), I would suggest going with a more widely known IP, such as Comcast or Charter, that are very good for things like this. I'm in West Texas, and use a semi-local service, so I don't think it would help you much.


To answer your question about the download limitations, I don't know if sending packets and receiving packets counts toward your download limit, but I'll bet on the safe side and say it does. In this case, you'll want to probably go with something that doesn't limit downloads. But again, try and download the trial before making any big decisions. It's always a good idea to try before you buy.


Hope this helped a little.

Ok, Brewfest has a few more days to go. If you don't know already, and you like pets (I do obviously), there are 2 pets that you can get at Brewfest this year and only at Brewfest. So don't delay. Go get that Pink Elek and Wolperthingy puppy

I love the Nightelf the Best! I love the land! oh yeah, I have a Night eld Paladin lvl 17, named Kara. mine are all females, so I'm gonna make a male next time lol How many do you have??
I have tons of time to play, more so right now cause of my leg.
So I'm trying to get leveled up higher on my Blood elf & Night elf. .
How's the 4 S's doing? give them all big hugs for me hearts

Sorry Lotus~ That would be so much fun if you could

Hi ya Karen, I hope they get the quests fixed quickly.

On Draka (PVE) I have SnowOwl who is just about to pop 57. She is a hunter and I just lover her.

I also have Owlsong who is a Druid. She is level 10, I think. I don't play with her a lot but I will eventually.

Then over on Burning Blade (PvP) I have Owlheart who 75 and a Frost Mage.

And I have Owlstryke who is a Death Knight and level 60.

And Owlhawk who is a druid and level 30ish.

I mainly play Snow and Heart--Snow with Hubby and Heart by myself or with one of my sons. But once I get her to 80 I'm sure I'll level up Song some more. I really like my druid, but Hawk is for playing with middle son and his girlfriend.

And now that I've discovered that Shamans have a wolf form, you just know there is a shaman in my future rotfl

Mine are always female. I have a night elf, a blood elf, and a tauren.

When I get around to making my DK on Draka, I think I'll make her Drenai.

It only took me about a week to get from 71-75. Of course, this was on a Paladin and I was pretty obsessed back then. Leveling in it isn't "hard" per-say, just takes a little while. Not to belittle anyone's achievement, it's still a huge milestone when you hit 80, especially if it's your first time.

I'm a bit of an Aion geek at the moment, but my laptop that runs it well is off being repaired. For now I have to play it on my old computer which is kinda graphically challenged. That's to say it doesn't run it as well as my gaming laptop does. Currently on Aion I have a 15 Gladiator, and in that game it really is hard to level.

But enough about Aion, I'm sure I'll start a rant thread sometime soon. I'm gonna go back to WoW when Cataclysm releases to play Worgen, my dream race. Hopefully, the changes they've made to Azeroth will be enough to keep me interested through 1-40 at least. Again, that Star Wars MMO I made a thread about might be coming out around the same time, in which case I'm dropping everything I have and trying that out.

Enough of my MMO rants.

H4, you sound like my kids--they power level and go zip zip zipping along.

I, on the other hand, quest much more slowly. Partly, as a mage, I have to--if I'm alone, I can't afford to just run in and try to slaughter everything in site.

Doc, my mage was helped along in part for the time that my account was linked to my son's. That gave us both extra experience. We started playing around Easter of this year I think. I remember because of the egg hunting. I still have items in my bank from that.

I always like to know how people pick names for their characters--that is the hardest thing for me, so this time I just started with something I love (owls) and stayed with a theme.

Doc, I think you have to go to the trainer and tell them you want to unlearn your profession. And then you would have to to go the appropriate trainer and start over from the bottom.

You don't get to take any of the skill level in your profession with you.

I know you can move your character. You have to pay.

See if the info on This Page answers your questions. wave

To unlearn trade skills open up your Skills window. Then click on the trade skill. At the bottom of the Skills window is a crossed out circle next to the selected trade skill. Click on that to unlearn the trade skill. Then go visit a trainer for the trade skill that you want.

I've been reading this thread and decided to start a new character on Draka since some of you are playing there. She is a Draenei Shaman
named Juhani. She is only level 9,so Doc if you transfer maybe we can play together. I would very much like to play with some of you, if that is okay.

L4L have you gotten a pet "moth" from Exodar? I just saw the vendor that sells them last nite. I plan on buying one as soon as I have more money, just like in real life never have enough. rotfl

Well, I'm off to play.

Hi ya Lindy and glad to have you aboard on Draka. I'll go add her to friends.

Thanks, I do have a pet moth--I have 46 pets--which is why my son says I play World of Petcraft, and I do indeed go out of my way to do pet quests lol

I'm trying to figure out how to get 4 more without breaking the bank so I can get the skunk puppy

Can't believe with all the animals they have, they don't have a doggie sad

I have added all of you to my friends list. Andrea, it was nice meeting you last nite.

L4L, wow 46 pets! I'm happy to have one from the Brewfest. I'm going for the pink elekk today, which I think is great because I'm a Draenei and their mount is an elekk. Won't Blizzard be giving everyone a pet for their anniversary in Nov. like the white bear last year?

Off to play.

Hi Karen!

I like the atmosphere on Draka very much. It's a PvE (Player vs Environment) and not a PvP (Player vs Player) server. That means that other players won't generally attack you. They might invite you to a duel, and I don't know if the Horde can attack you unprovoked. Maybe L4L can advise this.
My Human Mage, Ardyth, got to lvl 20 last night, and got a mount finally!

Hi ya Doc,

Most quests you can do on your own, but of course, they are faster and more fun if you have friends with you. Some you have to do with a group, but you don't have to do those if you don't want do.

Hubby and I usually don't do those, and if we want to, then we blackmail the boys into coming and helping rotfl

However, there are often folks looking for people to join them on those group quests. I think there is even a channel just for that.

Horde players cannot attack you unless, and it's a big unless, you attack them first.

So, the first time this happened to me I was completely confused. This is how it happens. They put up their PVP flag, which means they want to do player vs player. Then they will get between you and whomever you are currently fighting in the environment. Since they are the enemy, they get whacked at which point, they whack you! sad

However, this does not happen very often, and I've never had anyone camp me on Draka.

bravo Andrea yay Mounts are wonderful.

Hubby and I are flying in Outland and it's a night and day difference. I played Outland with son on the Horde side and we had to run everywhere--plus we were both clothies. PvP city and camped and fighting our way into every objective and trying to stay alive when surrounded by evil.

Now, Soot and I can fly around, scout of the area, find the guy we want to kill, drop in, Soot is a Pally so he tanks and heals, and then whoosh straight up after we are done. yay happydance tomato

Hey Doc, whenever you need help just give me a yell. I would enjoy helping you out. I wasn't on much last nite, because I watch the football game with hubby. I plan on being on tonite so I'll watch for you.

I finally got my mount and my ghost wolf spell had this at level 18. I'm riding a purple elekk. So cool.

wave Linda

PS. Since Draka is a PvE sever you cannot be attacked by PvP, unless you are flagged as a PvP. To do this you right click your portrait and check the PvP mode then PvP players can see that you are flagged as PvP and they will attack you. I have had quest that will flag you as PvP, but this will last about 5 minutes. So I hide untill it goes off. lol
