Nope,

 

    Isn´t worth for a newb started, just coz Blizz told that don´t care for newplayers and all update focus on vets. The insta 90 says everything about their plans. A newb has to choose begin and play alone in a low -mid zone very dead or jump to lv 90 and try be good naked ( w/o great stuffs ) and be kicked from raid partys coz he don´t have idea how to play his class.

First, find mature guild. You really don't want to play with random people in Wow. Prepare to get cursed, sweared and kicked from dungeons... A lot. Avoid asking questions at daytime in your faction chat channels, 99% you won't get answers, but got called noob or <insert name>, cause every Wow player was born with knowledge about game. 

About gear, do not worry, you'll get gear faster than you think, but I suggest you to not choose quick path, go little bit progressive.

So not true. Blizzard has plenty of things that help new players. They have guides and such u can easily read on there forums, They have cross realm zones so when u are in low level zones u aren't alone. the instant 90 is just one character per account, not every character. And that is aimed at returning players who haven't played in a bit who want to catch up with freinds. 

The truth is wow is fun has alot of players who are helpful but like any game with 7 million players there are a bunch of jerks. pick a pve server unless u want to get ganked regularly while leveling. With recruit a freind , the double xp helps level fast and u can level in dungeons from level 15 up with lfg and learn your class that way. The instant 90 doesn't happen till wod either and that isn't out yet so if u start now any concerns about no one in low level zones wouldn't be a problem i happen to level alts alot and the zones i play in always have a bunch of other players.

OP - WoW is definitely worth it, newbie or not.

 

I'm an 8 year player and sitting here having a hard time not re-subbing and leveling to 90... Might just do a starter edition for shits and giggles to calm my WoW urge.

WoW's still a great way to go, if you are choosing from what is available today.  Most themepark MMO's on the market now may look a bit nicer, but don't have nearly the content, polish, customer service, or active development.

People keep talking about WoW "dying", but even if they got ALL-THE-WAY-DOWN to only a couple full severs worth of players, they would still be more active than most of the AAA games on the market...

A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

This is patently false. Through Cross Realm Zones and the Connected Realms it's rare to NOT see other people out while leveling in the various zones. I just leveled up a new toon and was running into people all over the place.

Secondly, the instant 90 is once per account with the launch of WoD. The instant level 90 will go through a quest series that acts as a tutorial, possibly much like the Death Knight starting area where you gradually receive your skills/Talents over a short period of time. You'll also receive a set of gear appropriate for the class/spec of your choosing. Since WoD has an end cap of level 100 the person will have plenty of time to learn how to play their class.

Additionally, the other advice from many people in this thread is golden, OP. Do some research, find a nice a guild and get into an active server. Not all realms are connected, so there are some dead ones.

I too am a WOW newb. I purchased it and the MOP expansion at 75% off recently and only because of the sale. I rolled Panda because I'm lost on the lore of other races and I find Pandas like me are new in WOW. So far it's OK but I'm only lvl 10.

Originally posted by Dasterdly 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 >=)
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 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.  
Horde - Gotchya!  ;)  

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




I don't know if I'd actually recommend Goblins or not. They seem fine, and the starting zone seems pretty interesting, but really there's not too much to recommend one race over another. When they are all done pretty well, it's hard to recommend one. It does seem like the Orc starting area is the most basic one. It's like the 'generic' area if that makes sense. I think I actually liked the Blood Elf area the most, but that's probably because I had a bit of an idea of what I was doing when I started there, and it was a brand new area when Burning Crusade released. Once you get past the starting areas, there's not too much difference between races though. :-)

**

I would recommend playing at least one character to max level. There is a lot of content in the game, and it would be a shame to miss it.

I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

 You'll be uber enough in no time playing WoW. And asking if it's worth while, it depends on what you mean. If you mean to compare it to future releases like TESO and ArchAge or EQ:N , then yea go for WoW, you won't be missing out on much on those 3 titles even if they were to release now because of all the glitches and bugs that will pop up on release, so I'd wait at least 6 months after any of those releases before even considering trying them out.

Thumbs up for this answer!

On a sidenote, my advice is to disregard 'levelingguilds'. I Think you should just play and level thru questing and try to find some buddies thru out the region. Then either make a new guild with your newfound buddies or join a small guild with a group.

Good reason to roll a Panda. Don't forget the bouncy bit and the beer brewing and drinking. They are fun.

WoW is a huge game with a lot of excellent content created over many years - and you can try it to level 20 with multiple characters.

And getting to level 20 with one character represents a decent trial - not something you will do in a day. Yes there are elements of the game that you won't experience but you will get a good feel for whether you might like it.

Should you wait for the expansion? I wouldn't. Sure you would be able to create a level 90 character but why would you want to - you will just miss out on the lower level content.

That's the way to play a game, get a boost to insta max level or someone to boost you.

Skip 99% of the game and uninstall after 1 week.

 

It does save you sub money though.

"what game do you play?" "WoW", "got a insta level 90 and I did the pug raids in a few hours, then I was done."

"going into arguments with idiots is a lost cause, it requires you to stoop down to their level and you can't win"
