The hugely popular MMORPG title World of Warcraft came out in 2004 and since then has started a huge pop-culture fascination with the genre and online gaming in general. More and more people are being lured into the game when they have not necessarily been hugely into games in the first place. There’s something about this game that even non-geeks get attracted to and after almost 3 years of staying clear of the sensation, I caved and went out last weekend and bought World of Warcraft.
Its not like I haven’t liked the idea of the game since it came out, I just knew that if I started playing this game, that I would never want to finish playing it, and my entire life as I knew it would be lost, lost to the world of Azeroth. I would no longer call myself an average 20-something year old guy WITH A LIFE; no, all I’d be interested in would be when the next time I would gain an extra level, and where the hell I could find a way to increase my mana lol.
So as I said, I went out last weekend and picked up a copy of the game. I have installed it on my PC but have yet to set up my account and start playing. I only have three weeks to go until my semester is over for uni, then I have all of November of exams which I should be studying for I suppose, and not playing WOW all of that time. So, I think I’m being quite good and holding off of my huge temptation to start playing right now.
I haven’t started playing yet, end of November I think I’ll start. I want to start playing with all the time I have in the world, I don’t wanna have any huge school committments in the way when I start, but since I bought it, I have been thinking about what character im going to start playing as when I do start playing.
I’ve been thinking of either:
- Human Paladin
- Night-Elf Druid
- Tauren Warrior
If any of you guys play World of Warcraft and have any good suggestions on which race and class to start playing as, I’d love to hear your comments, you know where to leave them :).
