I just thought it would be a good idea to create a central thread for all us fans to discuss the game (experiences, gear, quests, etc.) and for those new or interested to ask questions.

Presently I'm a level 22 Paladin and my realm has been down for a good 20 hours, so yeah I'm a little ****ed. Besides that though the game is incredible and in a few weeks I anticipate a new patch to fix the bugs (especially my lvl 20 Paladin quest that gives me a awesome new weapon Posted Image) as well as new servers to alleviate the queue issue. How has the world of Azeroth treated the rest of you?

Im only a level 13 mage, I love it but it sucks trying to level up. I guess I need to make more friends to party with.

What kind of machine were you playing it on? I have my settings maxed and it looks pretty good. But MMOs generally aren't focused on too much flash anyway. I actually find the graphics to be very hand crafted as was their intent, and enjoy them. I do know what you mean though, if anyone is looking for hyper realism then they need to look elsewhere.

lvl 25 night elf named shadowelf on the bleeding hollow server. spent 4 hours today in the charred vale killing harpies by myself because I kept getting pvped by lvl 28 rogues. However I still had tons of fun and even managed to walk straight through the barrents all the way to the thousand needles today with only getting caught once. i am so glad that I got this game. still has a few bugs but I feel that after the first month things will be fine.

Level 9 Night Elf Hunter on Eastern Lothar Normal server. So far since the day it came out, i've had no lag, or server queues, and no problems. (except the normal maintenance Blizzard is doing.) No complaints at all.

I only wish i had more people to play with!

The problem with some is you can be surrounded by people and still not find someone who wants to party. This is why I'm quitting Ragnarok Online and switching to WoW.

Can someone explain to me the general idea of a MMORPG? I loved WarCraft III and would like to try this one out.

From what I can gather, you meet up with a bunch of people. Now, when you join a clan (party, whatever) do you all set out on the same quest and fight the same enemies? Are there quests designed specifically for parties (meaning they require 5+ players to beat)? I realize these are pretty general and rookie questions...gotta start somewhere I guess :)

Thanks.

Mainly the general idea for MMORPG is the community to delve yourself into. To either solo or party with people. To level and have some fun while your at it.

Clans are a different matter. It all depends on what kind of clans you join. Some clans work mainly as a group of friends that you can chat with and get some help. While others work like a pack of wolf going from one to another. I prefer the 1st kind.

By what I understand they have both kinds of quests in the game. Some for soloing and some that do require more than 1 person because the dungeon maybe a bit hard for 1.

Oh and also if you have anymore questions or wish to look more info up on this one check here: http://www.worldofwa...t.com/info/faq/
