Adequate for things like WOW and the other MMOs I play. I'd really like to be able to run Supreme Commander full-out, though. :)
Nov 13th 2007 2:41PM Low sec scares me, but that's because some kids beat me up and took my lunch money. Also, the two times I engaged other players I nearly died of adrenalin poisoning. :)
Free time card. W00t!
Nov 13th 2007 2:05PM Ahhh, 100 free days of ore theiving. Count me in!
Nov 8th 2007 4:13PM Now, a lifetime subscription to Lord of the Rings is enough to get me to stop playing WOW.
Nov 8th 2007 4:05PM They took away my Second Life Insider, changed to a new domain name, and made me read posts about Everquest over and over again.
I'm going to London.

Dec 24th 2006 8:20AM Crafting's not worthless, but it's much less important than in many other MMOG's. The now defunct Earth & Beyond had a superior crafting system; player-crafted items were usually of better quality than those dropped as loot. The incentive to craft and to excel at crafting was quite high.
Crafting in WoW is almost a mini-game. There are a small number of items that make it worthwhile to maximize crafting skills, but not many.
