WoW, WoW really is WoW-crack

    I finally got World of Warcraft.

    I haven't had that much addictive fun in a straight 12 hour period since i played Solar Eclipse ( a favorite MUD of mine). Absolutely awesome. The game is just a joy to play, and at times, the graphics are gorgeous. Dun Morogh is just awesome looking.

    If you dorks ever want to create characters on one server and play together, let the forum know. My girlfriend and I are pretty hooked on WoW, too. We play on the Medivh realm.

    I currently an officer in a guild with about 30 members, so I don't see myself jumping forums.

    The fact that you can't change realms at will is, I believe, one of the biggest shortcomings of the entire game. What's funny is that all of the people on Blizzard's forums think Blizzard is retarded because they can't figure out how to copy some bits from one server to another. I'm pretty sure the real problem has nothing to do with bits -- they could easily zap a character from one server to another, since it's just a database record. The problem is likely with the game's economics -- if people zap players with large amounts of money back and forth from one server to another, it's possible that some servers will end up quite wealthy while others become poor in both magic items and in currency. Imagine if people made characters on other realms simply to get magic item drops, and then moved those items onto their preferred server. It would be unfair for everyone. Blizzard has announced plans to allow people to move their characters between realms, but I have no idea how they've decided to solve this problem.

    I'm on Scarlet Crusade (RP) right now, but i'd be happy to make a character on another server to get a PF group going at some point.

    I think one of us should stake a claim, since it seems no one wants to be the one to suggest a realm. It takes ten people to create a guild, yes?

    Let's pick one low-traffic PvE (or RP) server, and we'll all make new characters there. It seems fair that everyone should have to start afresh.

    Any thoughts? Scarlet Crusade is one of the few low-pop RP servers, so it actually makes pretty good sense.

    Well, I for one will not be moving servers. I'm firmly entrenched in my guild on Silvermoon and am extremely hesitant to dump a L52 mage for the heck of it.

    You don't have to lose your characters -- just start a new one on another realm so we nerds can play together (some of the time).

    You can have characters on more than one realm

    Sounds like it's time to cut you off! Do they have a 12-step program for this addiction? :tongue2:

    :rofl: It's good for couples to have common interests.

    Although...Chroot, do you and your girlfriend IM each other when sitting in different rooms of the same apt to let each other know when it's time for dinner? How about if you're sitting in the same room? :biggrin: If so, we're going to need a 12-step program for you too. :tongue2:

    Well, I have been playing since final stress test. I've done the lowbie quests for humans and dwarves so many times it only takes me 8 hours to get a player to level 10, and about 2-3 hours per level up to the high teens.

    I am now drooling for the endgame raiding quests. My guild has already started hunting the globe for dragons to kill. Occulus, Tick, the one in Alterac Highlands, the two in Badlands... all have fallen. We're getting reeeeallly close to being able to take out Erinakus in the sunken temple. Once we get a few more L60 peeps (we've got 2), we'll start hunting the really big ones... the ones guarded by the L60+ dragonkin. Onyxia will be our b****.
