Nov 16th 2006 10:34AM This was obviously a mock piece of literature, I think he was just contrasting WOW to Real life in a humorous sarcastic way.
Its funny though because with so many people playing Wow at one time or another its not inconceivable that someones first experience was something like this. I can only compare the first time i walked into stonetalon mountains with a racing heartbeat worried that the alliance was around every corner. It may not have been love, but it was pretty close to fear. Of course you grow out of it... eventually
Nov 14th 2006 1:39PM #34 has it exactly right.
I remember reading the section in the WOW strategy guide about social interactions and money and it said something to the tune of, 'Dont ever expect payment, and always offer payment' it sounds silly when you say it, but it would keep alot of annoyed people happy.
oh yeah, and it also mentions NEVER open a trade window, group invite, guild invite etc. without first talking to the person. Especially in the AH.
Ha, and i guess i should ask if anyone else pictures all those low level toons walking around begging for gold as 16 year old lazy spoilt kids that would rather sit on the street asking for change then get a job. Does anyone give these guys anything?
Nov 12th 2006 10:05PM I too have ran into problems getting toons above 30. It seems that as you enter the jungles of stranglethorn everything becomes alot larger and its easy to get lost with no clear objectives.
I played about 15 alts to 20 after getting my main to high 30's before i could go back to him. And the reason i did is because i bought the dungeon companion and used it to set those mini goals to give me direction. I strongly recommend it to those that don't have the time find there path by socializing in game.
My girlfriend just yelled over her shoulder that the reason for losing interest in toons at 30 can be summed up in one word. GNOMER.
