Just kind of wondering how worthwhile getting started in wow would be.  Will I be shunned for not being uber enough?   Will I be a pariah because my gear comes from quests and random loot drops?

Some folks are like Slinkies, totally useless but great fun to watch when pushed down stairs

No you will be fine.  There is all walks of life as the game is vast, do some research on the server forums and find the type of group/guild you most closely can relate and join them. You lose nothing by trying the game.

Its definitely worth checking out. The game is HUGE, and there are still many people online. Check out the free trial and give it  whirl.

It's definitely worth it. However, I will recommend you know your stuff before you play. Basic MMO knowledge is necessary unless you want to be constantly flamed. At this point, most low level characters are people that already have a max level character and if you dont know how to play your class you will piss a lot of people off.

i bought battle chest on blackfriday and i dont really bother to use the CDkey.

infact, i'm enjoying starter edition more. just sitting, walking , chating and looking at people showing off at each other or dueling outside cities.

OP should try the starter edition and see if you like the game or not.

also in my OP, WOW is old enough and not worth $15 a month anymore. it should lower the monthly sub like $5 a month and sell cosmetic items or maybe F2P. Blizz is trying to milk the last drop from WOW lol.

or maybe they want to keep WOW until new project( titan) finish.

Yes worth it, it's really the sole remaining mmorpg. After it goes, the genre will vanish. Hopefully it wont go for another 10 years

The thing is... you're important to a lot of people.

I used to play a lot back in the day... And I would only get it now because some friends and I were kind of setting up a nice little group and trying to decide. WoW weighed in heavy for obvious reasons. (I've upgraded my computer a lot as well from last time so that's exciting) But the only thing stopping me is knowing exactly how much everything is going to cost including the newest expansion or all of them?? Total amount of money to get started would help a lot! Thank everyone.

Edit: Forgot to answer the OP =()     I have always felt that once you get into that flow of things and find the perfect group to play with, any game can be fresh especially when playing with irl or longtime online friends!! Good luck!

THIS, and join the other bitter raid addicts in their quest to burn out asap with doing dailies and raids.

 

OR you could make a character when YOU like it and actually have fun, you know; without others boosting you or telling you what to do.

If  you have actually never played WoW before I wouldn't bother with it. The game is on its way down. No point in investing time and energy into a game that has lost half it's player base over the last couple expansions.

the way blizzard handles WOW is basically this: they dont update the game, they just sell the yearly update as an expansion

 

so dont touch the game until the next expansion is released, or else you will be stuck in a limbo where you will have no updates or content patches for a year and youll get bored of the game

Imagine all those internet idiots that you see insulting people saying "lol newb go die lol rofl" you know the ones I mean.

Now imagine each one of those scum bags has a 3d avatar to play around with and multiply that number by the amount of subscriptions that wow has then you will have an idea of your future experience in wow.

WoW IS still the best MMO out there, nothing even comes close to WoW.  People are talking ESO and Wildstar and yet did the same talk with Age of Conan, TERA, Rift, The Secret World, GW2, SWTOR,  and countless others.  And yet WoW is still to dominate MMO, yeah it has less subs but that's only because the market is much wider now.  Unlike most MMOs, WoW adapts to the times and is continuously evolving.

As for being a newb, just find a high populated server and you'll find a lot of friendly guilds.  There are leveling guilds and all sorts of casual social ones.  Really only few are uber, most are mediocere players at best.  If you are willing to improve, research your class then you are ahead of the game.  Find a guild that will show you the ropes and once your comfortable move on to a guild that fits your taste.

Thanks for the input and advice.  I think I will spin it up and check it out.  

Now... for the hard part - faction, race, and class >=)

WoW is the MMO equivalent of training wheels, it's where most MMO players either get their start or at least solidify their interest in the genre.

Actually the harder part is server ;).  I would suggest taking a look at realmpop.com as a dead server can really make or break an mmo for you(or a horribly unbalanced one faction wise).  I would suggest Bleeding Hollow if you're looking to PVP at all.  And, if you want to give RP a try I hear great things about Emerald Dream.  As for a PVE server I got nothing.

I've become dependent upon spell check. My apologies for stupid grammatical errors.

I've been playing on Bloodhoof for years. Around Christmas I'll be firing my account back up and logging back in. There's nothing special about the server, except there always seem to be people there, and I'll be there. :-)

The correct race is any Horde race, of course.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

Well so far, I hate Worgen.  Any Worgen.  the movements and the sniffing bother me.
