The funny thing is I want to get back in to the game, I even went as far and already bought the new expac...i just dont know. I am hearing alot of good things about the game. But i no longer know anyone who plays, not in a guild and i do have a 85 horde mage. Semi-hardcore is my style, dont mind raiding couple nights a week as long as it not 3-4 hours of us not getting anywhere. Problem my last guild had a big problem with.

I could count on both hands and then my feet on how much guild drama I've seen over last 8 years. It's apart of the "social" mmo's bring. Sad thing is, same thing happens in real life because of politics and social issues...humans can't get along no matter what.

Yeah tell me about it, 3 or 4 guilds ive been in just totally dispersed from guild drama. Are you currently playing? You alliance or horde?

I might just have to make friends with some guys on these forums and transfer to a server to join a guild lol. Playing alone is really boring lol

Horde on Zul'jin. I'm in a casual guild that just joined since we just transferred to Zul'jin. Don't know where or what the guild will wind up doing, but all I really care about is LFR truthfully, and maybe some normal. I have a child on the way in 3 months so I don't know how having a dedicated schedule will work...My hardcore days ended after I graduated college 3 years ago.

also I see you are in GA. if you pay attention to any college football...especially this weekend... Go Cocks! :-p

Yeah I'm pretty much casual now, I like doing achievements and tribute runs and fun stuff. I have a 6 months old son so i know what youre talking about. Well if I were to transfer would i be able to join the guild? I was in GA, the ARMY moved me to San Antonio, TX this summer. Im not a huge sports fan, dont keep up with any teams sry

Leveling from 1 - 90 can be solo but reaching 'end game' will require raiding with a group of 24 other people. Recommended that you join a guild for this. I like being in a guild for the social aspect while leveling as it tends be be quite monotonous.

But as a new player coming to WoW, it's easy to get into. Maybe a little too easy to some hardcore players.

I will not play a MMO just to solo...I hate it. If I am just going to solo a game I will play a single player RPG with a much better and more apparent plot line.

So what I am asking is would a level 40ish player for example be able to actually get people together to go crawl a dungeon?

Not hard. I am a long time player, but I started a brand new character Friday night. I am already halfway to max level in 3 days without having to play 24/7 or use recruit a friend. You can solo all the way to max or you can solo to level 15 and do 5 man dungeons until max.

From what people are sayin theyve kind of gone back to the ways the game used to be. Its more traditional which is a good thing, cuz they almost ruined the game with CATA. Its fairly easy to get into the game. I mean its like other mmo's and the fact its been around for 8 years you can find anything online if you have a question. The game has a lot of really cool stuff to do whether you are casual or hardcore in terms of PVE or PVP. But like the guy above posted, you can solo 1-90, but if you want to conquer any of the END GAME stuff which is what this game is mostly about. You will need to group with 9 or 24 other people depending on the raids you want to do.

WoW is called an END GAME, because you dont even get to experience alot of what the game has to offer until youve reached the max level and are at the end. I played for 6 years and had a blast.
