Jan 8th 2009 11:30AM Starting on a new server is kind of what I did with my wife. I had her look at all the races and pick her favorite... which of course was a blood elf. Since I only had Alliance toons we started out on a new server. Its been a lot of fun. We only play our characters together and when I have some free time and she is doing her thing, I go back and play my old Allys.
A lot of people are defensive of the 'girl gets the gold' stereotype, but that did happen in my case. My wife doesn't like playing the AH. She would much rather just hand me all her greens and cloth after a questing session than figure out prices. Its not fun for her and it is very fun for me. I imagine there are a lot of cases where this is reversed. We have taken it slow enough that I do have more than enough gold for both our epic flyers.
Overall I have really enjoyed having her play. My advice is to just let her pick. Give her the information and try to emphasize what she likes. If she likes story, let her take the time to read every quest. If she likes PvP think about twinking out a duo. We aren't really hardcore players, but its nice to have WoW as an option versus TV/Movies/Other games/Shopping... ;) GL
Dec 16th 2008 3:16PM Eh. No matter how you spin it or how optimistic you are about it the decent gear needs arena rating. I don't think this season is very accessible at all. Then again I'm not level 80 yet... so I'm going to get pwnd no matter how you cut it.
Dec 16th 2008 2:09PM I do think its interesting that Blizzard has said they want more content accessible to more players (hence semi-easy mode raiding) and then they turn and base everything in PvP off of really-hard-to-access arenas. It seems like they have different visions for PvP and PvE. Which makes no sense. I love to PvP with a passion, but I am no longer a fan of arenas. I played a comp at 70 (with my brother) that was completely inviable. We tried. We tried for hours!!! We put out more than 400 games in the season and BARELY got the rating for our helmets the last week. Sure he and I aren't the best players ever, but we aren't bad.
So bottom line do I PvP still? Yeah, thats why I play this game. I want to get geared and duke it out with other players. Will I arena? I probably won't. It just isn't worth it, really. Blizzard really has botched PvP in my opinion. They have created an awesome new BG and Wintergrasp is AWESOME... but they haven't added anything new to the old BGs and they have taken away incentive to play them at all. Honor capped anyone? Lol its a joke.
