Oct 27th 2009 11:41AM Eating then drinking separately... one tip that I could have used way before I saw it in the Tip line in the loading screen!
I started playing back in mid-2006 (after seeing my friend play fall-2004 and thinking that mobs would change as you level, which is kinda what will happen in Cataclysm and following game changes on worldofwarcraft.com waiting to get a high speed connection to play)... Played an Undead Warlock to 34 (retired).
Came back in BC in fall-2007 to play a mage (in vacation atm at 64) with my coworkers (EBGames, yeah...)... and still didn't knew it before winter 2008 lol.
Came back again on my own in fall-2008 on the same server... to attend the WotLK midnight launch in Montreal, finally to transfer my mage, which is still in vacation while my main (a DK) is 80 and working to get Loremaster...
Long story short (or TL;DR): I played since Vanilla and it took me a while to learn that you can eat and drink at the same time! Kudos to tutorials! :)
Jan 31st 2009 11:08AM I came back to WoW one week before WotLK. I had a 53 mage. As a casual player, I'm very happy to have a 73 death knight, a 12 paladin (not played a lot with him) and leveled my mage to 64 (I plan to level him to 80, but DK is so fun...).
My guild is not very active, so the only thing I miss is group experience (I would pug but my server is low-populated and I can't play at peak hours).
I would like to see more BC content (as I only did hellfire peninsula, zangarmarsh and terrokar forest before going to northrend), so I will probably do it at 80 or while leveling an alt. But so far, I'm really impressed about WotLK lore and storyline so far. I can't wait to do Wrathgate quest chain.
It was funny to be a casual player at midnight launch. I was with a friend and he was confused to see that many people waiting for an expansion (in Montreal).
Jan 5th 2009 1:58PM In my case for practical reasons Orgrimmar or Undercity, and Silvermoon for its beauty.
Orgrimmar: I'm on a low-pop server, but there is always some action near the bank that makes the town alive. AH is near, and I always like to run RFC for fun from time to time.
Undercity: Confusing at first, Undercity has everything I need next to each other. With the bank in the middle and auctioneers all around, no time is wasted.
Silvermoon: I love the architecture of the city, it is awesome. But I really hate how everything is spread all around. No wonder they have two banks.
Thunder Bluff: I'm sorry, I just hate TB. Maybe because I've never played a Tauren, I don't know. I like the fact that the city feels peaceful.
Exodar/Darnassus: Both feel desert, but calm. Exodar is eye-catching.
Stormwind/Ironforge/Shat/Dalaran: As I've never leveled an alliance character more than up to level 11, I couldn't say. I'm not in Northrend yet, I'm in Terrokar Forest but never been to Shat yet.
