    I was in the same situation as you, thought it was really strange that ppl could be soo in love with this game. So i tried it out, and i must admit that once everything starts rolling it is very hard to stop. I have stopped now cos i need to settle down and do some studyin' but i am pretty sure that when i am done with that i will be back.
    I am lvl 58...grrr so close yet so far.
    Look if u want to try it, i say go for it, but be warned it is very addictive and it will take up LOTS of your time.

    If you have lots of free time and are prepared to be addicted, then wow is the PERFECT game. If you don't have lots of free time or don't want to be addicted, don't start. I know because I played TONS last summer and had to slow down when I started college.

    It's a little to demanding me thinks.

    These are the things you have to give up:
    $40 to buy the game
    $15 a month (thats $180 a year)
    social life
    life
    Job
    Time

    Im waiting for Leopard and Boot Camp and get Guild Wars. (It's Windows only)
    Guild Wars is really similar to WoW.
    It's more geared towards casual gamers.
    Plus it has no monthly fees.

    wow is seriously addicting. listen to everyone and stay away unless you are prepared to spend countless hours/days on it, or unless you have some super will power.

    I was able to quit for 3 months or so recently, which I am very proud about, but I recently started playing again. This time around, though, I dont expect to be as addicted.

    spoken like a true WoW anonymous addict.

    /cheer

    hehe, ok well goodluck and before u make a character do some reading and i REALLY recommend u first make a bunch of lower lvl dudes and try em out to see which you like the most. But when in doubt just go for hunter..cos they are the best :p
    /sigh i miss the game...must study

    Ahh! Your slipping!
    OK, take a deep breath.
    *inhales*

    *exhales*

    Just remember the five Wow's
    Wow, that game is screwing up my life.
    Wow, that game cost so much.
    Wow, I haven't showered since I bought that game.
    Wow, I can't believe my boss fired me.
    Wow, I can't think of anything else.

    You won't regret it fun wise, its a great game and I love it. If you're in the UK join the Bloodhoof server. If you're an alliance player I might see you around there, I'm a hunter night elf on there. :)

    OMG, you read my mind! :eek: :D I started playing the day the game came out and played straight through the first 10 months of it. Then I quite so I could actually get some work done at school and now...somehow, my friends have convinced me to come back after 9 months of being clean. :rolleyes: But it's just for the summer holiday...yeah that's it. It's just for the summer...:confused: :(

    No, but seriously...It's a really fun game, but as the others said: It's *really* addictive. You have to be strong to play the game. Both my wife and I play, but we only spend a few hours per week on the game. Just keep things in perspective and you won't succumb to WoW. :)

    Wait a minute...

    So you asked about WOW, and everyone told you how addictive the game is and how it has ruined their social lives...

    And you think that's great- so you're going to buy the game?

    Maybe you should do something with your life instead- so that you can look back in 10 or 20 years and be proud of the hard work you put into getting somewhere.

    By the way- why does everyone say 'addicting' as opposed to 'addictive' these days? I'm not sure that 'addicting' is even a real word.

    You're quite right, it's not. However I suspect that we'll hear more of it :(

    WoW took my life for about 6 or 7 months last year. It's really quite an immersive game, and if you have real-life friends that play with you, it's a lot of fun. Of course, having to pay nearly as much for the game as I do for my internet connection every month, I quickly grew tired of wasting time and money.

    Recently however, they've added so many new things with the patches and whatnot that I'm actually considering starting up again.

    Argh that game.

    I admit WoW is amazingly addictive, although I found myself playing it less as I levelled because I didn't have the time to play for extended periods to organise groups for various quests, I preferred soloing in the earlier levels.

    Saying that, I know a friend who hit level 60 before I'd hit 35, and he still plays it constantly, so you can definitely get your £8.99's worth every month!

    Learn how to use an apostrophe and capitlization and I might believe that you've got time to put down your school-work and spend hundreds of hours playing a computer game.

    The beginning lvl's are still very basic and can sometimes be a bit tedious. They basically give you a feel of your character and how the game works. I say only after lvl 30 does it really start to get interesting. And at lvl 40 you get your mount. You will understand this later ;)
    Its the end lvl's that eat up your social life. Oh and i recommend this guide for lvl'ing it is the most fun and by far IMO the best way to lvl... Linky There are others who disagree and say that grinding is the way to fast lvl'ing...pfff dont listen to them.

    Well GL :) My guess is that you will be coming here less and less :p

    PS: May i ask where u at EU, US?

    WoW is great because if you put the time in, you'll get to 60. I've been playing since January and am a level 50 Druid. I installed CT Mod and it totals up all your time you've spent playing. I've spent 14 days total playing that character. That's insane!
