A lot of the human female faces look strange, a shocked look. Everyone of the new models runs like a female panda, like they are skipping, that includes trolls, orcs, humans etc.

Suggestions/feedback needed on a group of 4 friends' professions:

Each of us will only have one (boosted) 90 ever most likely.

Me (doesn't like questing, mainly dungeons and eventually raids) Monk
Alch/Herb

Wife Hunter
LW/Skinning

Friend Paladin
BS/Mining

Friends gf Rogue (maybe, hasn't decided 100% on class)
JC/Ench

I would prefer to synergize on a per character basis first, followed by between couples and finally, a group as a whole.

Thoughts?

well xp has been boosted while leveling again.

we have forced queued each instance once from level 15, and are currently sitting @ 43.

bonus xp @ gold for optional bosses ftw.



editski: so... looks like deathwings back.... azeroth is fubar.

Hi all. I downloaded the free starter pack last night and the game looks like fun. However I'm concerned that after being out for years, I'll never really be able to compete. Very interested in people's thoughts before sinking any money and time in to it.

There's always something to do, especially at the start of the xpac. There's lots of catering to casuals (like me!) and it works well.

PM me if you're keen and I will recruit-a-friend you.

Now is the perfect time to come in - get some leveling in before xpac, and everyone's gear is reset coming into new content so you can keep up.

Just make sure you level, not take the 90 boost. There's so many bads in the game that a fresh influx of boosted characters with people behind them with no idea will just make it worse.

Boosting a lvl1 character is a waste as well. If you're over 60, your associated professions are boosted to 600 if you are 60 or higher.

I only started a month ago and pre ordered WoD last week. I used the level 90 boost and did the quests to gain all my skills and now have no idea what to do with it. The 90 boost really isn't for new players lol.

Otherwise I have been playing as a Pandarian Warrior (horde) currently at level 36. Having a great time with the game. I played the beta all those years ago and bought it on release day however I never had the time to play then and fell behind and gave up. So happy to get into it now.

Hey all, new player thinking of diving in, only 10yrs late on starter acc atm

What server are the aussies on? PVE and or PVP? US/Aus pop would be good so stuff going on 24/7

OR does it matter? e.g. is everything cross server etc?

Default WoD looks interesting!

Comming back after a break since start of Cataclysm.

Regretably it looks like the old guild from the WOTLK days looks like it's long since dead and am looking for a new guild somewhere to experience WoD with.

Anyone here know of any nice social type guilds on Oceania - Either faction - looking for experienced mature players to quest/pvp and maybe a bit of raiding with? I'm mainly active weekends and one or two evenings during the week, not looking for a heavy duty raiding guild.

WoD looks intriguing, especially how you can build your own little town (Garrison, but i'm calling it a little town).

I've rolled a Worgen Lock on Jubei'Thos as I've never had an Ally char. Been Blackrock horde from vanilla. Really trying to create a fresh new WoW experience for myself this expansion.

How is Alliance on Jubei'thos? As far as I knew the Alliance population was dead on that server. A lot who role Alliance are on Frostmourne, huge population there.

Might end up rolling elsewhere or just going back to Blackrock. Fkn. Can't decide.
