Join server Gorgonnash, and I'll hook you up :P

I have 3 70s and 2 have the best PvP gear possible, so I know what I'm doing :)

SimplyNic September 29 2008 7:54 PM EDT

>,< Yea I have a suggestion... Don't play it D:

My friend gave me a 10 day trial and I regret the hour I spent playing it.

Tyriel [123456789] September 29 2008 7:55 PM EDT

Don't play WoW. That's about the best advice I can give.

BadFish September 29 2008 7:56 PM EDT

Right! Well, other than the fact that we already ARE playing WoW, and enjoy it, we're on server Anub'arak because we enjoy low population servers. I appreciate the offer though 3D!

Anyways, as Paladin, the fastest way to level is to use "Retribution" talents. For Warlocks the fastest is Affliction or Demonology, both are arguably the best for leveling. Don't worry about PvP until you are level 70, and really be frugal because it's nice to have $$ for WotLK. Running instances is great for XP, especially if you have the bonus from someone referring you.

And with the low pop thing, I see your reasoning, I had that reasoning too when I first started, but I couldn't imagine playing without people I could contact outside of WoW. I would have probably quit a long time ago if I didn't know anyone in RL that played WoW.

Don't touch Paladins until the patch hits.

Then go Ret all the way and have a tonne of fun!

For Warlocks, roll your face over the keyboard and kill everything. :P

demonology warlock is great for levelling and very fun to play as well.

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] September 29 2008 8:39 PM EDT

Agreed with Dude... I play a Demonology Lock and use Dots and kill everything quickly....

3D September 29 2008 8:45 PM EDT

Affliction is more fun imo. Try both out! Changing your talents costs gold, so don't change too often.

Mesoshort September 29 2008 9:43 PM EDT

DON'T PLAY WOW... Its so addicting.. -whimpers, wanting to play-

Goodfish September 29 2008 9:49 PM EDT

We both thought long and hard (~6 months) about whether or not to start up playing it. We finally decided to cave and jump in. Don't worry, we both know WoW sucks. ;)

3D September 29 2008 9:52 PM EDT

Most everyone I know in WoW knows that its a bad thing to be playing. But it hasn't killed anyone. Yet.

Sickone September 30 2008 12:52 AM EDT

Don't play WOW, play EVE-Online instead :)
I mean, come on, where else can you find a game where the "leveling up" continues while offline ? :P

Goodfish September 30 2008 2:50 AM EDT

EVE-Online seems [admin edit]: non pg too bad I already paid for 3 months of WoW, though. =x

TheHatchetman September 30 2008 2:59 AM EDT

wow... WoW is already rubbing off.

"CB has a PG rating policy. Foul language, including abbreviations or censored portions, is banned in most aspects of the game. Do not try to debate the policy, that can get you kicked as well."

"Most everyone I know in WoW knows that its a bad thing to be playing. But it hasn't killed anyone. Yet."

Actually, it killed a gamer in China. Seriously!

He literally played non stop until he dropped dead. :/ As far as I know, this led to China installing measures so that WoW discouraged you from playing for long streches, something about it reducing the XP/Drops you get after a set amount of time.

Cube September 30 2008 4:02 AM EDT

I think I remember seeing a news article about someone who was killed over stealing someone else's in-game weapon before too.

Flatcap [East Milwaukee Devival] September 30 2008 5:34 AM EDT

Yeah, that was the kid who camped for a year for something in everquest then shot himself when someone else took the spawn.

I'm going with sickone on the Eve. Much better game.

Pally is the hardest class to level, and warlock is very easy, roll your face across the keyboard and everything dies... It's the truth :( so easy (I have a 70 lock)

I've played most classes, and I've found Mages, Warlocks, and Hunters to be the most fun (rogue can be too). Pally is a bad class for many reasons (I also have a 70 pally) well... depends on what you want to do ... raid or pvp... but it's pretty not fun at lvl 70 in either situation because you're hands are tied...

Hunter is the most fun you should consider rolling one, it's the FASTEST and most EASY to level // play (Beastmaster spec you're basically your own party, you have a tank, healing abilities, AND dps) You never die, and your only job is to KILL...

GL: Just by looking into it for a few minutes it seems that there are a couple more WoW attributed deaths.

A 13 year old Chinese boy jumped to his death out a 24 story building last year after playing too much WoW.

2 Korean parents went to play WoW at an internet cafe, lost track of the time, and left their 4 month old baby alone for several hours as the baby suffocated.

Truly sad and pathetic.
