2) Since you won't listen to the first point, roll a Tauren Druid, not an Orc Warrior; you'll like it more, and you're going to roll Horde anyway.
3) Avoid Venture Co at all costs.
4) Don't start.

My jealousy meter's hitting 11 right now.

Aug 16th 2007 7:13PM I started playing in Dec. 2006, got one past 60, currently working on my second character which I started in early July, who's now level 48. Because everybody's either tending to their 70's or leveling their alts, I feel like it's at a nice, manageable pace now (though it can be a BITCH to get instance groups sometimes - I just put on the LFG tool and go grind until I can get a group going.)
I think that, with the new expansion, there should be a bit of a speed-up for the 1-58 leveling... like, install the game, automatically get a 25% speed boost in leveling from level 1, and it caps off at 68 before you get to Northrend.
If you're bringing in a friend or getting an invite from a friend to a new server, you should be able to catch up to them fairly quickly, otherwise it gets boring. :\
Aug 8th 2007 9:13PM Was anybody paying attention to the rest of the patch notes? You missed this gem right here :
"Acquisition rate for the following old-world factions has increased : Timbermaw Hold, Cenarion Circle, Argent Dawn."
Does this mean... that the Azeroth rep grind for those factions might be *bearable* now? :D
Also, some decent changes to Pallies, the usual stuff they were talking about - buffs lasting longer, etc. All in all, good patch a'comin' our way. :)

Somebody's got to go back and get a $@%!load of dimes...
Jul 26th 2007 8:47PM I see fishing's proponents have no problem with their habit, maintaining their "I leveled mine to 375 and you didn't, neener neener neener!" stance, while the rest of us who're used to the action, adventure, and certain progress of every other profession are left out in the cold.
I realize they want some element of reality, but for crying out loud - it takes longer to level fishing than any other single profession, including the "Main" Professions.
Why not skill-up with the misses, increase accuracy of the fishing (enough that you can catch lower-level fish), and once you hit an area's ceiling, be FORCED to move on to skill up, like the gathering professions?
Jul 24th 2007 10:19AM Wow, 18-21 are the best years of your life? Good thing I took up WoW at 22 then :P
I've been playing for about 7 months - friends always came before WoW, but playing made me realize that all the drunken shenanigans and random girls associated with party life weren't really my thing. Kind of got me back in touch with my inner nerd. :P
WoW's actually helped me better organize my life, and I've met some great people through it. I actually play with 6 of my RL friends over on Ravenholdt in a medium-sized guild, and it's been a blast.
Would I change anything? No. Leveling up a character the first time taught me all of the pitfalls of PUGs, the value of solo play (and the lack of aggravation!), and best of all, spending more time building relationships with my friends and new guildmates.
Also, when I was clinically depressed, WoW helped me get through a couple rough days, so where some people say it ruined their life, it might've actually saved mine. :P
