anyone here ever played world of warcraft? it's just about the greatest game i've ever played. the quests, storylines and even the characters are awsome. what are your ideas about this game?
My boss' kids play it. At least until her one son went into the navy just this past weekend. Yes, I hear it is addictive and yet I have no interest in it with all the writing I do on various websites, being involved with scouting and looking for a new full-time job.
yeh ive spent way to many days on it. I might go on it now actually
Yes I play WoW. I love it and am very addicted to it. I have 8 level 80 characters. I have 2 warlocks,1 warrior, 1 shaman, 1 druid, 1 hunter,
1 paladin and 1 priest. In addition a 76 rogue and a 78 deathknight. My girlfriend and her mother and father play it as well. As gear goes I have exceptional gear on all my healing characters and one of my warlocks. I continue to work on my hunter and warriors gear. I started playing it before Burning Crusades came out. It has change for the better and worse sense then. They have made it far to easy to level a character from 1 to 80, but have made getting gear at higher levels much easier. This is due to other games coming out online and Blizzard trying to keep in competition with them. I have a vast knowledge of the quests, how to make gold, professions that are usefull. Yes I am that WoW geek. I cant help it, its such a wonderfull way to pass time in my profession.
disagree with you! WOW is the supreme of all games! lol
I'd played for couple of months and last night i hit 80 (atlast) thanks to wow strategy guide it guide me from start. Well its still nice to play with companion.
Hi i have been playing wow for about 8 months it is the best game in the world as far as i am concerned now I have 1 warlock I death knight I rogue and a driud I talk about my toons abit on my hub come and check it out and please leave some comments http://hubpages.com/hub/Worldofwow
I've played for a while. It was KINDA fun. After a while I played again and I sucked at it.
ive never played but i think i will try it soon!
seems to be a really popular game...
yea i play i have 2 level 80s a lock and pally but im rather burnt out on the game now ive been playing since vanilla =s
I love WoW....
I have an 80 deathknight...
Few smaller characters... Holding my name space for Cataclysm with a level one character...lol
There are lots of comments and some hubs on it. http://hubpages.com/hub/goldonwowIII
It's reputed to be addictive. I know someone who lives in the WoW to the detriment of real life so be careful if you're that type!
Omg I just love Wow. I am level 80 now and I am so addicted. I know things are getting bad as I prefer to play it each night than play poker with Bill Ding next door.
i'm more addicted to hub than to wow. thanks for the advice but i just play it occasionally for fun. i've only had 1 character and she's level 59 now. i find all of the quests very interesting. but hub takes up most of ny time now.
have fun and be creative
what's the hub you are speaking of? i can't afford the wow subscription now and am looking to play different games anyway.
i meant, hubpages. sorry for the confusion. if you have a ps2 and some games for it that your tired of you can take those games to just about any game store and trade them for different ones. this is good for just about any gaming system not just the ps2. most game stores will let you do even trades that don't cost you anything. good luck.
I play Wow. I'm currently on a break though since university is more important so I temporarily canceled my subscription.
But once summer vaca kicks off, I'll be back priesting ^^.
< Level 80 Warlock. The game is a slippery slope. If you do it right the game is a lot of fun and a great way to relieve stress. However if it gets too firm of a hold on you, it can waste countless days doing things in the game that you don't even like. It took me a while to find the right pattern for me, but now I'm a happy casual player. However I did end up writing a hub on how to cope with the game for someone trying to avoid falling back into bad habits.
I thought I'd give the 10-day trial a go to see what all the fuss is about. I have spent the last 3 days downloading the game plus patch after patch. There seems no end to it. As far as I can see, most of my trial period will be spent downloading without any chance to try out the game. Is this the total scam it appears to be so far?
the people I know that play love it, and be ready, as it is very addictive. I've never played it but watch my son sometimes when he's raiding, he plays with people worldwide, you talk to each other while playing. it's fun, you hear other peoples accents. his favorite is an australian.
his character is a druid.
your computer may not be able to handle this game. you may want to invest in upgrading.
write angled, dont upload patches for trial... just the first trial, then play it..... dont bother with patches, then not a "ripoff"
i never did the trial i just bought the game. it is really fun and the raids are great when you have all of those other gamers helping you through. that's why it's so fun. you can quest alone or join a group for raids or dungeons. at first there is alot of patches. but once you're past them you'll see a great game with awsome visuals and storylines. make your own character and have fun. my character is a hunter i don't really like the others as much like the warlock i find to hard to play.
Played since it came out (30 days after release). Have 80 mage, 80 rogue, 80 priest. It really was a great game. It's still very popular, but much easier and it lost a ton of the satisfaction it used to have when getting good equipment was really hard and took 40 people coordinating effort over a long time to beat the hardest stuff. Now if people are willing to put in the long, endless hours of "farming" or "grinding" they can all be magnificiently equal. lol. A socialist world that exists in a capitalist created universe. The irony is spectacular.
Still, will rank among the all time great games, even if it's past its prime for hardcore gamers. Makes a good family activity for families with kids to seniors... everyone can play. Brings people together. (When not destroying their lives through addition.)
You mean you're a plate wearing, full-healing, ranged magic, stunlock rogue with a two-handed weapon, ridiculous DPS and an invincible bubble?
Haha I am a female butt kicking paladin with a gear score of 5215,and I ressurect the dead, ignite my seal of vengeance and chat up the members in my guild LMAO.
And that's just before breakfast!
Hey there Logic and you should know. How are you???
I have had better days and will again.
Seeing you has put a smile back on my face though!
I have also played "Withmyself". That one is REALLY addictive!
Did I mention I have played "Withmyself". That one is REALLY addictive?
I have personally played it, And I have found it very fun to play and as you said its amazing, And I give props to the Blizzard team that created WoW. Very nice game, A side from the immature people Its a very fun environment to be in, If you manage your time and take breaks to go outside or just to go hang with some friends is still great.
It is worth the monthly subscription, And If you find you don't like it there are plenty of games out there to suit your wants.
I was in it for a long time, tehn I got in to a serious relationship and BOOM no more time to play it
I also used to make quite a lot of cash of my WoW Raid Guide site on blogger, but since I don't play it any more it's just too hard to write boss guides.
I keep meaning to start writing the guides again just so I can get some cash together, but I just dont know all the little tricks you learn after attempting the same boss fifty times over anymore!
Did I mention I have played "Withmyself". That one is REALLY addictive, know what I mean?
You don't need to say it 3 times to understand that we don't find such an obvious joke to be funny.
We were not aware we had written it three times. We doubt it was read three times by the same person if at all. We find that a lot of times people post without reading all the other posts.
Sorry you didn't think it was funny--no biggie. We did not realize it was so obvious that others had posted it as well. Of course, we think if it truly was so obvious that many others would have posted it.
No one is perfect. We'll take a 99 percent any day.
At first its great, but then years later you can't get out and don't even enjoy the game anymore.
I've spent more hours playing WoW then I'd care to admit. It can be quite addicting sometimes.
I have not played the game, but heard it to be very good and also addictive.
I used to play Evony, which can also be addictive.
I have been staying away from those types of game and focusing on real life.
from all of the feedback i got off of this topic i decided to try giving up playing to see how addictive it is. i myself have not had the slightest urge to get back on although i've been surrounded by people who can't stop. i don't think it's very addictive. if you want to stop playing my advice is to try finding something else to do in it's place. like working on your writing, drawing, painting or whatever it is you may be good at. just do something productive for a while and after you begin making acheivments without the game look in the mirror and see if you really were addicted or just bored or procrastinating.
I have played the game before, but just got off when you reach the high level and started wondering where its going then. After i hit level 70 (no lich king yet that time), I focussed on spec building and equipment which became tiresome. But it was fun playing the game.
I played wow too many years, I think like 6 years...pfui good thing i gave it up
I played Wow for a few years and have several level 80s. My toons have been in top raid guilds and very anonymous social guilds. The thing that kept me gaming was the social aspect as I made a few decent real life friends through the game. It is very addictive and I don't know what I think about this aspect of the game. The addiction might be good game design, but is it really desirable?
Anyway, one day I thought that enough was enough and quit. Looking back, I wish I had made one hub a day for every day I played. By now I would be making retirement type income!
I played the demo version and reached level 20. But the quests and everything got repetitive and boring so I didn't buy the game.
From what I've heard it can get really addictive and many people spend more time on these MMORPG than they do real life. The reason is because these MMORPGs give rewards much faster than in real life. It's the same concept as in real life, that is you do hard work, do tedious tasks, improve your skills and you get rewards. Except in real life it is a lot harder and takes a lot of time to get rewards. In these online games, the work is just clicking a button and the rewards are much faster.
I played for a while off and on, I had a few level 70's.. got the next expansion and got I believe 2 of my characters to about 75 or so and then burnt out on it. It is a fun game, but it can be very time consuming, and these days I'd rather spend time doing something else.
I don't play it. I've watched other people play. Looks pretty cool.............though I imagine it could take some time to level up to 80.
I played WoW for a few months after its release. It was decent. I'm surprised the game is still around. I'm a fan of PvP, so I quit WoW for Warhammer online and Darkfall.
I've played WoW off and on over the years. It's a good game with a lot of rich backstory, but I just can't tolerate the end-game grind for very long.
i played Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, never played wow though.
I play WoW, as does my husband. I've written a few hubs it - it makes me feel less guilty coz playing is "research."
I've played WoW for a couple years now. I've amassed an incredible (some might say embarrassing) encyclopedic knowledge of the game from 1-80 including end game, which I'm sure will continue through Cataclysm (the next expansion).
It's interesting, I'll give it that. Then again, I probably wouldn't still be playing it after 5 years if it wasn't interesting.
I used to play WoW. But it got to where It was affecting my everyday life,so I had to stop. Plus I could never figure out what character i wanted to make. I would just go around making a lot of new characters just because i couldn't decide what combination i wanted. I also just got tired of paying a monthly fee, so I figured i would give some other games a try.
I've thought about getting WoW a couple of times, but never enough to pay for the online. People really must love it so I might give it a try one of these days.
I played WoW for a little over 5 years. I had an 80 DK, 80 warlock and 80 paladin (along with several alts). I quit last March for several reasons, one of them being I was spending WAY too much time on the computer! It really is a great game though, but people need to be really careful about how much time they're spending on it, it's very easy to lose track!
Played since vanilla, and still dip my toes in now and then , but not so regular now even though I have 3 80's. With Cataclysm and The Shattering, that might just change
I played for many years, good times, but its no longer really my cup of tea, i did enjoy the social experience of it all though, the sheer number of players was the best.
Now i play eve online
Yep, I play and going to be doing a lot more now that the Cataclysm update is upon us!
Get out now, while you still have a chance. This game can ruin your life. Seriously it will probably take you only a few minutes to find someone in game that is divorced or never goes out because of this game. I know, I spent 18 months addicted to it.
Yes... love the game. took a month or two break before coming back for cataclysm though and I was a little late because I was short on cash. I was part of my guilds main raiding group and now im 80 (almost 81 hehe, just got back today) and they are all 85s gearing up for the raids.... I need to do some serious catching up...
and to the post above me, yes WOW addiction can get out of hand I've been through that and I think all long term players have at some point in their lives. But It's pretty much the same with alcohol and smoking IMO. Too much is always bad but if you can make it work for yourself and your lifestyle, keeping things that you consider important above WOW and placing others below then you should be fine with the game.
I played WoW and I loved it for a while but then for me it became too much grinding and I left it for good. It is one of the greatest MMORPGs of all time but it is was not as a breakthrough as Warcraft 2 of Blizzard once was. I would say in MMO World the same role goes to Ultima Online or some other great MMORPGs. I have heard that Blizzard is developing another MMO, Titan, and I hope that will bring some new concepts to dried MMO world.
yeah most online games if not all will force you to grind and it can get extremely boring. With WOW though I'm more into the social aspect of it now. So when I was 80 already pre cata I never really logged on for anything else except raids and daily randoms. So that was just bout an hour a day and 3 or 4 hours on raid days.
I hate grinding and I dont really care If im not as rich as everyone else. I just keep my money at 1k more or less and do the raids.
Hello. I've played WoW for about 2 months now. I think it's an incredible game. Full of history behind those towns, cities, characters, quests, etc. I began to play it because of my fiancée and frankly I cannot regret it. It is AMAZING!
I play wow, I really love the game.
Ever since I bought some guides it has been such a great game,
you can also buy those guides at http://wowguide.tk/
It's really recommended!
i used to love the game. It consumed every hour of my life for a good 3months then for some reason it got boring. so its an off and on thing for me.
I so love WOW. Have been playing for three years now. Have had a little downtime but I'm on there in my freetime especially since Cataclysm launched.
