What Class Should My Next World of Warcraft Character Be?

Found this question being asked online:

What should my next World of Warcraft character be? I have a level 80 rogue and I don’t want to do any of the healing classes.

Warcraft Gnome MageMy answer: For a good change of pace, why not try being a mana-slinging Mage? With several 80-level toons in WoW, I’d like to be able to play both my 80 rogue and mage simultaneously.

With both the magic-user and dagger-wielder, you get to experience 2 diverse ways of playing the game. With my high-level frost specced mage out there, I can solo open areas with easy while many of the mobs never even reach me before I have executed them. Fast, hard DPS is a great tool for fun.

The other very different way to play Warcraft is with a hunter. A hunter takes different paths to eliminate the enemy. Although some people think hunters have been nerfed a bit, I really like the different classes of pets available and their very different ways of aiding your success. Whatever you do, have fun. Remember, it’s a game. A good game for sure but if make a character that is just a big grind for you, then why bother? Go experiment.

Warcraft Quests: A Brief Summary

World of Warcraft Quests – A Brief Summary
By John Dobbins

World of Warcraft is an exciting MMORPG game that is absolutely filled with quests that you can do to gain levels, money and reputation with dozens of different factions.

Beginning with level 1 you will be offered quests to help get better armor and weapons and the better equipment you have, the easier it is to survive in the World of Warcraft environment. Often times you can accomplish several quests at the same time or at least in the same areas. The trick is to know which order to do these quests to get the most done in the least amount of time. This can be tricky at times, especially when you are dealing with “chain”quests.

Chain quests are a string of quests that tie together. You do the first part of a chain before you are eligible for the second part. Once the second part is turned in you become eligible for the third part and so on. These chain quests are usually a good way to build your reputation with whichever faction you are questing for and generally have a pretty good prize for finishing them. That prize may be a new piece of armor or a weapon and money. Sometimes the quests in World of Warcraft only pay money but that money comes in very handy for buying potions, buying materials to raise your skill level in a trade or saving to buy things that are expensive, like mounts.The higher your level, the more money you earn with each quest.

If you are looking for an exciting way to explore the many different areas and fascinating creatures of Norrath then log into World of Warcraft and start questing.

Getting Started in World of Warcraft? (Part One)

Are you just getting started in World of Warcraft?

I’ve been playing World of Warcraft (WoW) since its debut several years ago. It’s one of my favorite MMORPG (means “Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game”) ever- and I’ve played almost all of them as well as being a Game Master (GM) back in the day for a game.

So, let me share with you some of the things I have learned about my favorite hobby, playing WoW!

1. Enjoy the Quality of the Game
WoW is filled with boatloads of content! Although I have maxed several different characters of different classes, there is still some content I have not yet played. That amazes me! There is so much to do in the game. Don’t get too focused on leveling that you miss the huge content and quality that the folks over at Blizzard have created for you in WoW. Since Warcraft is an immersive experience, spend some time immersing yourself!

Once you have some experience and you are ready to move along a bit faster with a second or third character, there are many excellent leveling guides out there. My favorite in-game World of Warcraft leveling guide is the one produced by IDemise. You can learn more about that when you click here.


2. Talk with Other Players

Wow is not a game you play by yourself. Although you can solo in WoW, it is not nearly as much fun. Most people in the game will be willing to help you if you are polite, not begging for Warcraft gold, and able to take “no” for an answer. If you ask another player for help, they may be able to assist you with your needs, just part of your needs or not at all. There are many reasons a person may not be able to assist you at any given time, so if someone denies your request for help, thank them for their time and move on.

3. Do All the Newbie Area Quests
The designers at World of Warcraft are smart people. The starting area for each race is well thought out. Unlike most games that give you a time-wasting tutorial, WoW starting areas give you the training you need to play the game while at the same time you can earn coins and equipment to make your new character stronger. Do these quests, enjoy the fun and easy leveling up to about level six and don’t miss out on one of the best designed parts of the World of Warcraft universe. If you are brand new, the newbie areas will take you about two hours to complete, more or less.

This ends part one of my getting started guide to WoW, the World of Warcraft.
