    Anyone here a regular on WoW? I'm planning on getting it (sometime in the next century, hopefully :p) and I realize a game like this requires some sort of grouping to succeed.

    I'm a level 21 dwarven hunter on the Windrunner server, I play in a guild that consists mostly of people I know IRL, but we're willing to make exceptions ;) I believe WoW costs $15 a month but it's worth every penny, although I just got it the day after Christmas so I haven't had to pay a fee yet. :D

    I will be getting it at the end of the week when I back on broadband internet. I didn't get it before because the past week and this week I am staying away from home right now.

    It's worth it, though. A really really good game, very atmospheric and with lots of options. You don't have to put hours and hours a day into it to enjoy it. During beta, most days I only played about two hours.

    I currently have a 42 rogue on Stormrage (PvE).

    As for cost its $15 a month, but like most MMO's if you buy multiple months the price goes down. For instance you can buy six months (the current max) and the cost per month is $12.

    I've been trying to get it, I was in the beta test and WoW is by far the best MMORPG ever made, and easily one of the best RPGs and games of 2005. It is $50 for the software and $15 a month, with one month free. The only thing I hate is having to pay for the software. I think the software should be free on this mmorpgs. I have no problem paying the monthly fee, but the fee for the software just doesn't make anysense to me.

    At best, it should be 20$ to download. Since that would count for the "free" month and give 5 more dollars to Blizzard. They need a better patching system though. This bittorrent thing they have sucks. Slowest tracker in the WORLD.

    I found it easier to search for the patch name on google when I first installed.

    Woo! Blizzard has it on their website! Ordered! \o/

    Now: do I sell the copy I ordered here at work for $40 on eBay, or will the game become that easy to get that people won't pay more than $40-$50 for it?

    I'm playing in the EU final beta, got a level 14 gnome mage

    really loving the game, the characters are great, it's got humour, adventure, danger, all sorts. Some highlights for me are the griffin flights, the /train command, and trying to run through a level 20+ contested area as a level 5 Night Elf to try and get to the human and dwarf lands.

    Diablo 2 = action/adventure-role playing
    Warcraft = real-time strategy
    WoW = massively multiplayer online role playing

    So...no. :D

    There are some differences between the gameplay and how the game is set up.

    I don't see how it looks at all like D2, except that both have swords and magic. o_O

    D2 = Hordes of monsters, lots of killing that is practically real time point and click combat. Very action focused.
    WOW = Traditional MMO "cooldown" based combat against usually one target at a time, except for AOE attacks. Not so action focused.

    Also, D2 multiplayer is just the single player campaign on coop mode. :p
