myself for wasting bandwidth and dirtying up my nands on my SSD.

What do you all think?
hey sounds exactly like what i thought of it... except for me it was Die-Respawn-spawn killed by lvl 60 some odd animals near my quest

Find a good guild.
Me and my guildies always have fun just chatting.

If you know what you're doing and listen you shouldn't die on any quest, only time I have ever died in WoW was BG and bad instance.

There are no level 60 odd animals at beginning zones.

You were dieing to wolves because you were moving to far ahead in the zone. You progress through levels by doing missions and as you do more missions and level up you can move further through a zone and eventually out of that zone.
I absolutely despise leveling. I find it extremely boring and not fun at all. It takes a lot of time and there is virtually no challenge.
The real game starts at max level (currently 85). When you hit max level you can do more dungeons (5 man bosses), raids (10 or 25 man bosses), battlegrounds (massive pvp), and arenas (4-10 man pvp).

WoW is a ton of fun but it is just extremely time consuming. The world is so insanely expansive with so many different things to do that it can be overwhelming. You really just have to give it time and learn the ins and outs of how everything works before you can really enjoy it.

To give you a rough estimate of the time you would spend leveling to max level though is probably 2-3 months if you only play it a few hours a day and are still learning how stuff works.

I gave it an honest shot for about a week but then I grew bored. Had some people from school help me get started and all of that, but I quickly realized how MMOs aren't for me.

I bought the game day before it released. Worked at a compusa at the time and my boss let me take it home early and install. I thought it was sweet while I had friends to play with problem was for some it was like crack and the next time I logged in they would be like 20 lvls ahead of me. Got boring pretty fast. I absolutely hate it now.

I tried to play for about a week or so. My problem is that I played FFXI for 5 years or so. No other RPG has been able to hold my attention like that. Even FFXIV is bust. The whole run here do a quest run there do another quest kill 3 animals come back and do it again stuff gets way to boring for me. Sucks that damn near every MMO is exactly that.

I want saints row 2 mmorpg. Or just a brand new redone version of XI
