Call for Submissions: Confessions of a noob {WoW}

Sep 4th 2010 4:14PM My first fail, when i started my hunter? Dismissing my pet cuz it was getting in the way of my shooting *facepalm*

Breakfast Topic: The alt before the storm {WoW}

Aug 28th 2010 2:08PM lol, I remember when I first found out about Worgen/Goblin, and the new race/class comboes, I planned on genuinely rolling one of every class for the new races, and each race class combo.

Then I remembered. leveling a lot of the classes available, never clicked with my playstyle.
Spamming Thunderbolt and Wrath (shaman and druid respectively) never clicked with me. Also, who in their right mind would dare level one of EVERY CLASS.... so after calming down and thinking it through, I'm only gonna roll

-Worgen Warrior (never leveled a warrior past 19, but I like it a lot and Fury spec needs a Worgen)

- Worgen Mage (for RP purposes, I have a neat character in line for this role)

- Worgen Death Knight (cuz I don't have one yet, and yes I am new to WoW, started late last year)

-Worgen Druid: Forms are awesome... NO BALANCE, I hate wrath, Im Feralin

I might roll a Rogue and Hunter, though I suppose my younger brother will level those for himself....

-Goblin Shaman, becuase im hoping the new race, and new starting zone will get me over my spam woe.

- Tauren Pally : DEATH TO BELF PALLEHS

-Tauren Priest: Tenative, never played a priest...

- Troll Druid: the forms are awesome
(I have a sever case of Alt-itis I know, but I get bored of one character, so yeah)

Cataclysm beta: Gilneas and the beginning worgen quests, part 1 {WoW}

Aug 28th 2010 4:40AM i think evryone does, even graymane

WoW Rookie: Choose your class! {WoW}

Aug 20th 2010 6:10PM well, being a new player I found these classes comfortable and fun to play:

- Hunter: It's pretty hard to get used to, as your play style is constantly changing, but, if you learn and adapt fast enough, this is a great class to play. They are super versatile and have an engaging play style that relies on many different moves and combos. Leveling is never boring, as your always having to change your fight pattern. In terms of PvP, the hunter is fun to play, because they are unpredictable and flexible.However, if you don't like to learn how to play a class STAY AWAY, because you will only mess up and further ruin the classes reputation.

- Mage: Another fun class, in terms of move pool diversity, and the fact that the moves sound and look awesome. In PvP, mages rock and running around and blasting all their opponents. However, you must be a high level before you go there, as you will die quickly. Leveling one can get a bit boring in the very beginning stage, mainly due to having to drink water after every skirmish, as well as the fact that you die. A lot. Really fast.

-Warrior: Surprisingly, warriors, can be very fun to play. Their high health and ability to wear mail from the get-go is ideal for players that like to attack a bunch of enemies, and manage to kill them all (with only a little health left). In PvP nothing is more thrilling than capping a flag, or successfully holding off many invading players. PvE is a bit more boring, as you will constantly rely on heals and potions. But again, the berserker, or the guy whow wants to have the BIG BAD armor and weapons, this is the perfect class.

- Warlock: Another class that has a very hard learning curve, but very fun to level. For lazy players, this is awesome. You layer a bunch of status draining moves, as well as health eating curses, and let your minion demon do the rest of the work. Also, survivability isn't too bad either. Whenever you die, wait for the threat to leave and use a soulstone. It can get a bit boring if you aren't leveling fast enough as you will quickly notice the cons of your demon minion, so a fast leveler is key here.

These classes were all right, and may suite other players

- Rogue: pretty fun, however, managing energy is very different to managing rage or mana, and be quite tedious to get used to. However, if you like attacking you opponent just when you want and finishing them quickly, the Rogue is perfect. Plus, the moves and combo point system are intriguing and fun to use. However, you must remember to use stealth a lot, because rogues don't like taking damage.

- Paladin: not too bad once you get the Judgment abilities, but, from level 10 to 15 can be a very annoying, because you learn many moves that are very pointless and hard to use, such as Lay on Hands, Divine Protection, and Hand of Protection are rather pointless to have at the time.

-Shaman: Really fun, flashy moves. Versatility and fast healing spells are great too. But spamming Lightning Bolt for nearly 15 levels as your main damaging move can be daunting and boring. Managing totems is a bit dull to. I was actually having fun, till I cast Lightning Bolt for the umpteenth time and suddenly logged out, deleted the character, and hit a BG on my hunter.


These classes, on the other hand, I found impossible to continue with

- Druid: I was a bit off put when I decided I really hated druids, after making three, because every where I looked, people said it was a great class. For some it might be, but the first couple of levels are truly a trial of patience. In the beginning, versatile heal spells, and buffs are cool. But there are no damaging spells besides, Wrath and Moonfire, TILL LEVEL 20!! And the only form you get at level 10 is bear form, which is pointless, as it only provides armor and health, which you don't really need at that stage of the game. Cat form, or even Travel and Swim Form would have been far more useful. Shapeshifting is cool, but seeing as this is supposed to be the main style of play, it's disappointing that this playstyle doesn't start for a while)

P.S. : Thankfully, come Cataclysm, the Cat form will come at 10, Bear at 15, and the travel forms at 16, so I might actually roll a druid again.

-Priest: A diverse healing class. But for starting players, unless you know for a fact that you want to heal, is horrible. No DPS abilities besides Smite. You spend most of your time defending yourself.


(WOW I wrote a lot)

Again, this is just my experience with the classes, and my suggest which I hope will help other players. If you have a different playstyle, I'm sure that the classes I negative wrote upon will be better for you, or maybe not.

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Arms report card for Wrath {WoW}

Aug 20th 2010 4:51PM Im kinda new to WoW, so Im not super informed about specs for PVP/E, but I'm leveling a warrior right now, and I'm specced in Fury currently, but I like PvP, it's just that Fury appeals to me more.

Maybe I won't notice it at lower levels, but why exactly can't Fury excel at PvP?

Breakfast Topic: The things that keep us playing WoW {WoW}

Aug 16th 2010 4:34PM I only recently started playing, so I can't claim to have as much a rich playing history as others. But I really like the design of the world, the lore, and the challenges (or sometimes, lack thereof) of PvP. nothing satisfies me more than beating a tough player in a BG. I also liked the Velinda Starsong questline, about the worgens. The game is really awesome, and, I'm gonna be a bit addicted for a while.

Arcane Brilliance: The early levels for Cataclysm mages {WoW}

Aug 15th 2010 2:01PM I know what you mean. I am a new WoW player, but I got onboard really fast, as I clicked really well with the game. Now that mages don't have to worry about mana, it's like warriors starting off with a full bar of rage. Managing resources is fun. Managing finite resources against annoying odds is not.

BTW i tried your quest idea. Yeah didn't work out so much, lol. I think maybe yellow and orange, not orange and red. But then again, to each his own.

Cataclysm Beta: Worgen /silly and /flirt sounds {WoW}

Jul 5th 2010 7:37PM Haha! These are epic... sucks that not all of them will make it into the live version.
