I'm really considering WoW....
So, whats a good way to get started? What server is best? I'm assuming I'd need multiple expansion packs?
The part thats been holding me back is starting alone. DH was always playing with me when we did EverQuest so I had someone to group with and walk me through setting things up (and I had leveled pretty high and was in an elite guild before our server merged with another and screwed it all up). So, if there are MDC moms that like to help newbies.. do speak up, lol.
Yep, I would definitely start off with a 10 day pass to see what you think. There *is* one offered on the WoW site, but it is limited time, so if you're thinking about trying it, I should do so soon - https://signup.worldofwarcraft.com/trial/index.htm
As far as what server is best, it really defends on the play style you like, there are normal servers, pvp servers, rp servers and rp/pvp servers. Personally I play on a rp server, not because I like to rp, but because I like the way it filters the people who play on it, hehe. If you *have* to name yourself leethaxnoobpwnerlol, you can't do it on a rp server, hehe. I just think there's a little less immaturity and a few less a-holes on rp
I also am heavy into pvp however, so I simply play with all of my characters permanently "flagged" for pvp, allowing any enemy player to attack me at any time. There weren't rp/pvp servers when wow first came out, or I would have started on one of them :P
And I wouldn't worry about the expansion until you've played for a bit and know you want to keep playing, unless you absolutely *need* to play one of the new races.
My play time is sporadic now with dd, but I generally play every day for at least a bit, you're welcome to look me up on my server, I play horde side on feathermoon. I'd be happy to answer any questions and help out when I can, I can't guarantee help all the time, but I do have a guild you could join of generally helpful people that will at least answer any of your questions.
