I'm a level 16 Shamen on the Uldum server. If anyone on the west coast needs a server, try this one. I live in SoCal and at one point had a 13ms latency :D

Bought the collectors edition of Everquest 2 (regret), and after seeing broken quests, gameplay issues, shader lighting glitches, mob bugs, and a multitude of other knick knacks... not to mention Sony's beloved NVidia they so proudly promoted doesnt pull through in providing the game with ample performace while keeping an expected level of quality. IE my 6800 GT, 3.2 AMD XP, and 1gb 2225 pc3200 ram cant play the game @ Balanced settings smoothly...

I goto WoW.. guess what?! Perfect release, smooth gameplay, polished look and feel, and the performance, while expected to be better since WoW's engine lacks the uber-detail the Granny3D engine EQ2 uses, runs at 1280x1024, 8xAA, and 16xAF over 40fps at ANY given time, and looks gorgeous doing so. The low poly count is easily made up for with the fluidity of movement in the animations of the models, as well as over all movement throughout Azeroth shifts seamlessly from one zone to the next.

I love how they have a mailing system (to send items or money right to a players door step), and Auction House (both the states idea from FFXI), Honor point system (for PvP), Honor point incentive based merchants (honor equipment, really nice gear for talented PvPers), Well Rested State bonus expereince, to mention a few.

World of Warcraft blew me away, and after playing Everquest Live! for 4 years I must say I am sorry to say goodbye to Sony, but I must tip my hat to Blizzard for a job, well well done. <applause>

lvl 12 Priest, the Horde - Gorefiend (PvP, EST) server -- and loving it.

See you in Azeroth!

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/

Great info, thanks!

I think I'm going to pick this up after xmas shopping is done. This seems like a game with infinite replay value, which is the most important aspect to gaming in my mind.

im just curious about how long till the lvl cap is removed and how many quests there will be to do around lvl 60 or so. I know there will be the big pvp battles but there is only one way to find out. Anyways I hope to be level 27 before I head off to work again so we'll see. I really like my druid and I advise any new guy to try it out. Great for party and solo play and while not the most powerful guy, can still do some cool stuff.

I only have a chance to play about 3 hours a day with work and all. I have had a Lvl 7 Priest, and now I have a 15 Shaman. I didn't like the amount of Alliance I saw so I decided to give the Horde a try. Strong, Hornorable, I love my Tauren. I have to say that the Shaman IS the Horde Paladin. Great class, I have damage spell, totems for AOE spells, and I can heal and revive. The buffs are very good also. I'm working on getting the second Item in my Fire Totem quest right now. If anyone plays on The Burning Hand, let me know.

It's about time this thread was made. Now to get it pinned.

No Blizzard hosts the server, everything is played off of there.

I also like the Tauren Shamen. I really would like to play an undead character, but they don't have the shamen. What is The Burning Hand? As in, what time zone is it in?

The Burning Hand is on Central and it is PvP. If you haven't played PvP it is well worth it and MUCH fun.
