My little brother learned his English through WoW. We are from Denmark and play on English EU Servers. He is turning 12 soon, and about 1,5 years ago he got his first subscription for Christmas.
At first he could not understand a thing, so I had to sit with him while he played to translate everything (that's how I got hooked on WoW), then I made him a small list with common words etc. Now 1,5 years later he can play and communicate without a problem - and he likes to speak English IRL just for fun. (I myself learned a lot of new words)
Who said that you don't learn anything through games? =)

Aug 30th 2008 6:43AM I myself is somewhat a WoW-newbie, I started playing over 6 month ago (comparing to ages of playing like my friends did). I did not see much of a problem with being a WoW n00b in the leveling, but after hitting level 70 I find it quite hard to stand up against/together with people who have played for ages and know the game in and out.
I always am being bullied for my crappy gear. Well, I am sorry for not having good gear since its hard to get when its your 1st lvl 70 and its hard for you to get a group for kara/instances and find time to grind everything in the world.
Its also impossible to get into a good pve guild because they expect you are imba, but really, its hard to get imba with random groups who just screw you over in the middle of Kara (and you are left with 5 days save).
I also am scared of Heroic, cause well, I am too weak and don't always know what to do. Which makes me feel like a n00b, and it sucks.
*For all those ppl thinking "OMG, L2P!" - My answer to you is - STFU, I spent all those month learning to be a mage, reading wowinsider, talking to friends, reading tactics and bla bla bla. You can't just have skill with knowing what to do, u need opportunity to use it.
So, no, its hard to find a space for a newbie in the WoW.

this makes me happy... rogues are quite annoying. My druid friend was very happy too, right after logging in today he went to do some BGs, just to gank some rogues. ^^

May 6th 2008 4:46PM First of all I am a girl and personally, I would never play as a Tauren Female, just because I think that they are too ugly and so not feminine *and so tranny* (plus they are Horde - Ally FTW!). I think all of horde characters are ugly, BE are pretty though - but they look too snobby to me.
I remember my first char - NE female druid and I chose her cause she was beautiful, I loved that about her. I loved her beautiful long silver hair, her emo markings... ah.. she was perfect. I like the whole fantasy thing. Then I decided to roll a mage.... it was painful for me to realize that NE cannot be mages. So I had to decide between gnome (too short!), human (to ordinary -too IRL) and draenei (disturbing wiggling tail, hoofs and weird face tentacles). So I rolled a tall draenei mage whose looks disturbed me for months - now I love her, but still miss my NE.
