    I downloaded EQMac the other day and just got a chance to play today. All I can say is WHAT DO I DO? I tried reading the help at the bottom of the screen but it hasn't helped very much. This game seems to have a huge learning curve. Can anyone recommend where to find resources/tutorials for beginners?

    One of the first things I did was accidentally attack one of the NPCs which proceeded to knock me into unconciousness in about 0.2 seconds. :eek: Not a very good start.

    By the way, this is the first MMORPG I have played. I was really looking forward to playing WOW but if it is this unintuitive I will be very disappointed.

    Am I just a complete moron or has anyone else had the same experience?

    Yep, you can go ahead and play a 3 or more year old game instead of playing what will be the sweetest MMORPG that ever existed, WoW.

    No thanks, EQ, I'll stick with my reserved WoW Collector's Edition. ;)

    I picked up a demo disc out of a stack at CompUSA a few days ago, and after I installed it, it tried to make me give them my credit card.

    ...No way in hell I'm giving a credit card number just to play a 30-day trial.

    When I beta tested EQ for Mac I had the same experience. I had no idea what to do and I just eventually gave up.

    WoW is much different. They give you quests and hints on where to go. Also the first monsters aren't really hard so it gives you a chance to figure out the controls/combat system which is nice. In EQ I was always getting killed by giant bees and other nasty forest creatures.

    So to sum it up, when playing WoW, you won't be completely in the dark.

    Thanks. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who had this experience. I am really looking forward to WOW. I want to preorder the Collector's Edition but I'm somewhat worried about what kind of performance I will get on my PB. Someone posted that they were getting only 17-19 fps on a PB with the same specs as mine! If this is true, I'm not sure if I am going to enjoy the game enough to buy it. Bring on the Open Beta!
