Why Is World Of Warcraft Addicting.. *10 Point’s For Best Awnser*.
I dont play the game but i tryed and, i seen a documentary on t.v about these loser’s who play world of warcraft all day, seriously, i dont see the use of even playing a game for kick’s and virtual friends who in real life are loser’s aswell. And i played the retarded game for an hour, and i got bored…
I am myself a World of Warcraft player. I am also getting my master’s degree (and maintained summa *** laud while playing it during my undergrad), I am quite thin and in shape, I have friends and family who love me and see me often. I play enough to know that some of the people who play are obviously lonely and perhaps overweight, but there are just as many who are successful, well-adjusted people. A good friend of mine plays with her son occasionally, and is able to bond with him while also getting a sense for how he interacts with the medium.Video games are like any other form of entertainment, they allow people to experience a certain escape, a fantasy not tied to their daily lives. As a person who reads hundreds of books every year, and who must in turn do a fair share of writing, I find that some mindless entertainment which still engages me is ideal for unwinding and to getting the distance from my life that allows me to appreciate it and produce it successfully. I also watch television, movies, surf the web, contribute to yahoo answers :), read comic books, enjoy hiking, and go out with friends. No one, however, would assume I was addicted to these activities nor assume that taking part in the makes me a loser.While I would say that WoW, like any other form of entertainment, should never eclipse your inter-social activities, participation in it should not come attached to a social stigma.
How many people read fantasy Books in the USA.
Like lord of the rings, and the world of warcraft book, and so on
I play world of warcraft didn’t know there was a book.
Could anyone help me find the World of Warcraft lore.
There were old posts I could find on forums but sadly the links were not available anymore. I don’t want to use wowwiki mostly because I don’t want to jump from a piece of story to another. Thanks.
Your best bet is wowwiki i’m afraid. unless you wanna buy the books.http://www.wowwiki.com/History_of_WarcraftRead the chapters from top to bottom then you should know enough of the history to understand any new information you read. I’ll even give you the Readers digest version of the very beginning.There are a group of people known as the Titans. There were 7 of them that went about the Twisting Nether (universe) to create. They made many worlds together and that’s how they created Azeroth where much of World of Warcraft takes place. The Titans discovered worlds that housed many hideous and evil creatures known to many as the Demons. http://www.wowwiki.com/DemonThese Demons were locked up and were guarded by the Titan Sargeras. Sargeras diligently did this for millennia’s until he found himself being changed by them. Eventually Sargeras lost his sanity and got into the mindset that the universe must be unmade. So he released the Demons from their prison and started going to all the worlds the Titans made and eliminating all life on them. Sargeras found a race known as the Eredar. He deceived more then 2/3 of the Eredar to join his demonic forces while the rest had no choice but to flea the wrath of Sargeras’s forces. Forces known as the Burning Legion. They fled the Burning Legion with the help of the Naaru.http://www.wowwiki.com/Burning_Legionhttp://www.wowwiki.com/NaaruAfter hiding in many worlds the naaru led them to a world that they called Draenor. For several hundred years they lived there in peace and called themselves the Dreanei. They often traded with a race known as the Orcs. The Orcs were a peaceful yet barbaric race that lived in separate clans. These clans fell under the influence of the Demons and started complete genocide against the Dreanei. They were driven into hiding after their homes were destroyed and the Demonic power the Orcs were given was starting to drain the life out of Draenor. In response the Orcs were promised a new world to rebuild in on the other side of a portal. That world was Azeroth.http://www.wowwiki.com/Draenorhttp://www.wowwiki.com/Azeroth_(world)The world of Azeroth has a history that dates back to the creation of its world but to understand it all would require a lot of digging into wowwiki and i am just to lazy to find all of that. If you want to understand more of the current history of Azeroth read up on everything that happens after the Orcs come to Azeroth and the War of the Ancients.
World of Warcraft.
I’m going to give World of Warcraft a try with the ten day trial, but before I start I wanted to get some advise on choosing a character. Since I’ve never played a game like this before I want to choose a character that would be not only easier to play but that isn’t some blood lusting fighter (LOL)….
I’m female too, and had never played an massively multi-player online role playing game (MMORPG) before WoW either, but after over 2 years playing (with a year break) I think I can give you some tips.First, there are two ‘sides’ to the world, the Alliance races (human, night elf, dwarf, dranei, gnome) and the Horde (undead, tauren, blood elf, troll, orc): the Alliance are considered the ‘pretty races’, the horde, the ‘ugly races (except the blood elf, which was added recently).There are nine classes to choose from-rogue, warrior, hunter, paladin, mage, priest, druid, shaman, warlock).You can have up to 8 characters per account, so in your ten day trial, you’ll be able to try out a bunch.I would recommend, even before you start the trial, to read some of the pages about getting started and character creation on the WoW website – they aren’t too long, and will give you a feel for character creation and what to do as you start and how to do it.I’d also recommend getting the Brady game guides (paper) at your local gaming store- they have great sections on your first few days of questing (receiving assignments from in-game characters, completing objectives – this is how you earn levels, money and gear at first), and the books have maps of different areas.There are many many websites out there that can help with with quest objectives, character builds, weapons, armor, etc. The main one I use these days is wowhead.com, but there’s plenty of info out there to help you along – so much so, it can be overwhelming.A popular race/class for beginners is the night elf hunter – cute, and easy to play to start – but difficult to master in the ‘end game’ (more on that in a bit). You get to use a wide variety of weapons, and you get to tame pets who fight for you. You don’t die too much, like some of the ‘squishier’ less well armored classes (mages and priests).The world of Warcraft is vast and complex- this is not a game you’ll master in a few months, like a single player game. You’ll be meeting people from all over, and as a female in this world, it can be pretty rough. Some of the guys are crude and low-class, but you can put them on your social ignore list so you don’t have to talk with them in the in-game chat.You can play Player vs. Environment – PVE – which is mostly questing and suchYou can play Player vs Player – either in battlegrounds (restricted sessions on a server just for that kind of play) or you can choose a server that is PvP all the time (hard to level if you are being attacked all the time, but some people like the excitement). This is fighting against other people, rather than fighting against the computer generated enemies.End Game – this is called raiding – when you reach the level cap of 70, groups of from 10-40 players run dungeons and kill very difficult monsters, called bosses. This is very challenging, both from a game play standpoint, and a social standpoint.Role-Playing – some servers are designated as RP – people will actually create a character biography and act out that character with others. This can range from light RP all the way to acting out complex story lines with other people, like a sort of drama club/play acting. This isn’t as popular as it used to be, sadly, and many of the niceties of good manners and gallantry it used to bring to the game are lost (I play only on RP servers – supposedly they have the more mature players).Speaking of servers, there are over 120 to choose from for the US version of the game, if I remember reading right. Different servers have different time zones, so you’ll need to visit a few to find out which one has the time zone you want. There’s an in-game clock in the upper right of the screen that will tell you what the ‘local time’ of the server is (at least it I think there’s a clock now, in the default game package. I have added modifications to my game, so it’s hard to say what’s standard and what’s an ‘add-on’. Google ‘warcraft add-on’ if you want to know more, but this is an advanced concept you won’t need right away)Guilds – these are groups of people united under a guild name, who help each other out, and have their own private in game chat channel. You won’t need to join one right away, but you’ll want to eventually. You can solo the entire game, except the end game raiding and the 5 person dungeons, but I think you miss out on a lot.There’s a lot to the game, this is just the tip of the iceberg, and it can be addictive, so be warned. If you find it interfering with your life- grades, relationships, money – know that you are not alone, and take a break. Take it slow, be patient, remember to explore and drink it all in. It’s a pretty amazing place, with all the good and bad of humanity within.Good journeys,PaoolahLevel 70 huntress

Hello there!Mages are very powerful characters and very usefull endgame,Talents:Fire – Single target dps, Good for raiding and killing bosses (Leveling 2)Frost – Multi Target dps, Lots of area damage and good for leveling, the best to level with.Arcane – Single and multi target arena and battleground pvp, Poor for leveling and raiding, but good to use in pvpSImply the spells in the book arn’t powerful enough and you will find leveling a bit more tricky, the best thing to do is follow a leveling build, click the link below to choose one.

World of Warcraft books.
I have been playing World of warcraft for a few months now. I have a lvl 67 hunter and i want to start reading some WoW books to help me understand the story more. My question is, What books are there that will help me understand the story better, and how many books are in the series if there even is one…and…
I personally would recommend the Warcraft Archive. It has 4 stories in it including my personal favorite about Thrall.War of the Ancients is also a good 3-book series.
What free websites and books are there for World of Warcraft.
What free websites and books offer maps, walkthroughs, strategy, and game information about the world of warcraft?
if u go to curse.com u can download a ton of “addons” for ingame play on wow. My personal favourite it questhelper, it makes icons appear on ur map for wer u need to be for that certain quest, there is also an arrow that will point to your nearest questing area, whether it be doing a quest or handing it in. it will also show you how many yards far away u r from the destination. if u can’t download the addons automatically, like i couldn’t (idk y my comp. didnt work) then go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-jYdIDGVgI its a youtube video that shows u how to manually instal them. its iz and it worked for me. gl!
