First, Robin, you remind me of that guy on Ed Sullivan(oops, an age tell) with all the spinning plates. How do you get it all done???? Congrats on the new assignment. Next, I'm so glad to see this article. I'm an older player who enjoys the beauty and social aspects of WoW, also the success perks. Got started by doing the parental eval. when my youngest son began playing.I play a Hunter, a Priest and a Mage and a recently created a little Rogue. None have reached 40 yet.I quest mostly alone or sometimes with one or two others, primarily because I share Roberth's wife's reticence about groups and for the reasons you listed.I appreciate your comments about not wanting to makenoob mistakes or not wanting to wipe a group. Inreal life, I'm not bothered by "noob calling" becauseI'm thinking everyone had to learn and some of us have less time to play. But it is intimidating to become part of a group in a new situation. In the heat of battle, it does sting to have someone type something caustic. But, oh how sweet to be part of a group where everyone is doing what they do best and the team works like a well oiled machine...uh, recently defragged computer. All the enemy corpses and the loot sharing and the congratulatory comments...It's just enough to make a "noob" like me think, "Wow, I AM going to do this again...sometime."
