Community Confessions of a WOW-AHOLIC
The sad confessions of an addict, that doesn't want to quit...
Aw shit...I did it again, its 6am and I'm still up. My eyes are bloodshot, my nose is running, my hands are shaking...The only thing that will make me feel good is just one more hit...no its not cocaine, or heroine, something that would be less addictive then what I'm on! It's World of Warcraft, and the one more hit that I'm craving is to run one more dungeon, or level up.
Ok so I'm not that bad, but I can say with no shame that this game is almost like having a second job, or some may call it an addiction. I say nay! to all the haters and shit talkers! WOW is one of the coolest and fun games that I have ever played in my life. Why is that you may ask? Well...
First of all the game starts out very simple and then grows as you do. The main premise of the game is to create a character and to level him/her through various quests, and accomplishments. Later on you can run dungeons or raids (A dungeon with 10/25 people.) Why run these? For the precious LOOT! Oh how we love getting a new piece of armor or a new weapon. These give us the ability to enter higher dungeons to get even better gear, and so on.
Once you reach level 80 which is currently the level cap, then the game actually begins. You gain access to many awesome and challanging dungeons that are filled with cool bosses, that all have a different way to kill, that must have teamwork in order to succeed. Once you kill a boss he drops loot, if it's a rare item you choose greed if you wanna sell it and you roll dice, but if your character can use it as an upgraded weapon/armor then you roll need for it and that gets priority over greed. All who rolls need and the highest number on the dice wins. Yes! My gear score just went up!!
The teamwork is a lot of fun in this game. To properly run a dungeon you have 5 people/ The leader is the tank who's job is to collect all the aggro from the enemies, Then you have 3 DPS or damage per second, they only attack the enemies. Then you have the healer who chills in the back and heals the party.
Alright I may have bored you to death and I could go into all the professions, and all the other things to do but I'd really lose you then! I love this game and belong to an awesome guild! I play with marines, stoners, hot chicks, Moms, Dads, and people like you and me. We talk on mikes through a program called ventrillo, and I promise you its some of the best times I've ever had. I wrote this article to try to give a little insight of the fun of this ever evolving game. The world is alive and is never the same due to BLIZZARD constantly changing the game, and adding content. Shit for 14.99 a month they better do something!
