  1. Hi thank you very much for your post! This is very useful for a beginner who wants to play wow

  2. Been playing for almost 4 years now. If only the gold I make on WOW was real gold. If only…

  3. lol. Would you call yourself a WoW addict? The fact that I have an addictive personality is the reason why I’m kak scared of playing the game.

    What speed line does one need to play the game smoothly though..?

  4. Galen,

    Even people with addictive personalities can attempt this game, assuming you’ve quite a while learning how to control and manage that part of yourself. It took myself quite a while to get the hang of it and since I do not find myself getting overly attached to games.

    I will say this though, if you have not then you will find WoW overly addictive and consuming of your life. But seeing as you’re aware of your addictive personality, I don’t see why you shouldn’t be able to handle it 🙂

    WoW is a lot of fun, as long as you do it in moderation

  5. There is also another store you can buy WoW Game Cards online with instant email delivery, the store is called http://www.pcgamesupply.com, you can buy WoW Game Cards from here as well.

  6. I must admit that I’m really keen to give it a bash! As you say, everything in moderation though 🙂

    I’m just concerned that the game might be laggy and frustrating to play with my connection speed. What speed line is required to have to have a smooth playing experience?

  7. Well I’ve played on a 384kbps line and it was ok, just not good for pvp. I’ve got a 4mbit line at the moment and its quite nice. It hugely depends on what country you’re in. Here in South Africa they really limit our upload speeds and shape our broadband connections. If your upload speeds aren’t limited and your line isn’t shaped then you shouldn’t have to worry at all. But there are many options that you can explore to greatly improve your ping.

    However, if PVP isn’t your main focus in the game (which it definitely doesn’t have to be) then you really don’t have to worry all that much because PVE play is fine, even with a 600-800ms ping.

  8. @Nexorsist: Thank you for your input. I currently have an uncapped 384kbps line, but on most days it is painfully slow. Even checking email can make me want to pull my hair out on some days…

    I have quite high standards when it comes to gaming performance – if there is any lag involved in online games it’s not worth playing them in my books

  9. Okay, I’m soon to give into temptation! Is this the right version of WoW to get?

  10. Check out: http://free-wow-guides.weebly.com/ for lots of completely free World of Warcraft Guides, including the famous Zygor’s Guide!

  11. I am a long-time player of WoW (since May, 2005) and have 20 toons, both Horde and Alliance on two accounts. I am always looking for a good guide on the internet, whether it is for leveling, gold accumulation, or trading. So, when I saw this guide listed on Amazon, I jumped at the chance to check it out. Disappointing is the best way to sum up my impression of this guide. At least it’s better in format than the comparable Horde leveling guide World of Warcraft Horde Leveling Guide.

    By following this guide, an Alliance toon can be efficiently leveled from 12-60. It is assumed that your toon will be level 12 after completing the starting zone and the accompanying quests. This guide accomplishes its goal, and with dedication, a player can level to 60 within a short period of time. The format and layout of this guide is excellent. It is identical to that of the older version of the well-known downloadable internet guide by Jame ([…]). This link is for the newest version, and he is about halfway through the Northrend portion of his guide. I am not sure if the author of this guide is Jame. If it is Jame, I understand the delays in production and printing schedules, so that can explain the outdated nature of this guide. However, this guide would serve the needs of a player who doesn’t want to print hundreds of pages on their printer at home. I have used Jame’s guides to level my toons and I like them very much. I have not found any leveling guides for either Horde or Alliance that I like better.

    Why am I so disappointed in this guide? It’s outdated. At the time of this writing, version 3.0.9 of the game has been released, with two add-ons (Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King), yet this guide covers only the original game. Clearly, this guide was written prior to the release of the Burning Crusade and the game patch which lowered the XP leveling requirements for 1-60; it only covers the quests up to the Eastern Plaguelands. Quests that will take you into Outlands for levels 58-70 and Northrend for levels 68-80 are not addressed.

    I hope you find this review helpful.
