I was thinking about getting the game since so many people seem to be picking it up, but I think I'll have to wait till I get a new computer in order.

What's the gameplay like in the game, some people say the creatures respawn too fast?

so far I have found the respawn time quite nice.. but I am still a lowlevel .. But Downtime in that game is next to nothing. So far I really like it.

Easy to control the character, easy fightsystem, but that will gradually be harder as you gain levels and more and more complicated spells/skills.

I've played the Open Beta and a friend of mine preordered it, so he's in the final beta now... I really want WoW as well since I've played both AO and DAoC and have been looking forward to WoW for a few years, but my bank took away my credit card... Totally unfair! user added image

I've been playing it some over here, state-side. It's definitely very fun! Too bad about the whole nationalized server thing as it'd be cool to play with some of you guys when it gets out over there. user added image

i for one was really dissapointed with it.. to me it was too much like dark ages of camelot... i liked starwars galaxies but that come dull and limited and really buggy...

i was really waiting for warhammer online to come out but the idiots pulled the plug on it because they said financialy it would have not been worth it... games workshop alreadys makes its millions so i dont know what they are chatting about lol

Mike : I was really shocked last nite.. I mean, I catually found tradeskills fun !!! I must be ill or something.

I really like that when you start on tradeskills, you actually start by making stuff for your character that can improve him! Good planning from Blizzard on that point.

Ive been playing for a while now, I have a 43 Rog on a pvp server, and have loved every min of it.

The game definatly breaks up the level grind that killed EQ for me. The quests are fun and the tradeskills are great too. And I love how the encourage exploration by reqarding experience by finding new screens.

depends on how much you buy. 1-month plans are 14.99 a month... 3 month plans, 13.99, 6-month - 12.99. That kind of thing.
