Wow is right! I'm in and playing retail! Is there going to be another guild (RedJake, Lasereth?)

Which server is everybody playing on?

What are your Retail character names?

I'm so elated, I have not blinked in about 12 mins...

So, here's a post for you WoW junkies.

I, destr0x, have never played a mmorpg but am maybe thinking about doing so. I truely love rpg's of all flavors including fps style (morrowind, vampire masqueredes, etc) 2d Fallout style and ones like Neverwinter Nights.

So lets take WoW for instance, what would it be most similar to, and would it be hard to just jump right in? Anything that is good to know as a beginner, do's and dont's.

Sell me a winning pitch.

Destro:

WoW is one of the most "noob" friendly mmorpgs I've played. Your hand is pretty much held through the first few levels where you learn the ins and outs. Here are a few tips.

1. READ YOUR QUEST LOG!! I cannot stress this enough. You will find all the information you need to know for all your quests here. Sure you may have to wander around looking for a specific spot but the info provided there is more than enough to start off.

2. Guards in towns will show you the way. If you click on a guard you will get a dialog box. You can then ask him about any type of npcs in the town. Say you ask where the Hunter trainer is, they will tell you and then a dot will appear on your map.

3. Take as many quests as you can(you can have up to 20). Most of these quests will involve killing things you'll be killing anyway or collecting things that they drop. Trust me, the quests are worth the XP....and sometimes the reward.

4. Dont be afraid to group. Groups are a good way to get a quest that is a bit high for you completed. Some people will just invite you without asking, if you're adverse to this just decline and whisper to them you do not want a group. I don't really care if they ask or not, once in the group I find out what is going on, if they're working on the same quest why not help each other out...it is a mmorpg after all.

5. Try to keep out of the general chat dumbassery( I just made that one up) You'll see what I mean after 5 mins of being in game.

6. Go PvP. Kill Alliance scumbags.

7. Get Cosmos UI . It blows away the default UI. You may want to wait few on this though, until you're ok with the game.

I hear that choosing an East Coast server if you live on the West Coast or vice versa doesn't affect gameplay at all. The only thing that would be off was the hours of tech support. You'd have to call 3 hours ahead of time for any questions!

I went to the west coast server garganosh or something like that because there was no wait. I got to level 6 with my tauren warrior "Circe" and then the lag set in. So far I have a good impression of the game, provided they fix lag issues. The graphics are excellent despite so much fanboy-wanker whinning. The map seems nearly useless, it doesn't tell me which ways are passable through the mountains or not. I gave up on one quest because I couldn't find the jerkbait whose head I was supposed to gather. I was in a party for a few minutes but then a kodo killed us both :] Looking forward to an extended weekend of play. I hope the quests become more imaginative once I level up.

A few questions:
1)Can I have more than one character per server?
2)If my normal server is busy can I move my character to another server with less traffic?
3)How characters are you allowed to have?

Thanks

1. Yes, either 8 or 10.
2. You can move to another server but your characters do not move with you (so far...they may change this later on, Sony did with EQ).
3. I believe the limit is 50.

Had my first taste of PvP today!

I was heading to Orgrimmar after getting off the Zepplinn, and I soon as I get down the tower, there's a group of 4 NEs killing boars in the area. I immediately Stealth up, walk up right behind the lowest level person in the group, and Garrote his ass! I do my usual stuff and he goes down before the rest of them know I'm there. Once they all turn on me, I'm done for, but I still got the one of them. I love being a rogue!

I usually have around 1g 50s, but level 16 left me with a lot less. I hit a wall with UC quests (all elite or level 20+) so I moved to the barrens to level. We'll see how much money I can rake up from skinning mobs in the barrens.
