Just create a horde character on the realm called "The venture co." . Quite a few of us are undead, but orc, tauren and troll characters are fine too, it's easy to us all to meet up etc.

I can show any Taurens the way to a good meet up point.

Quote:
I'm gonna download the 10 day trial, apparently it will play on my system & I fancy a change - If I install tonight, can I join you tommorrow?

also if yes - are we good uns or bad uns?... also - what do you need in terms of class balance?
You may want to get downloading asap. I found that the main download took a long time, but downloading the patches took far longer.

I *think* these are all of them (and a worthwhile download now - blizzards downloader is so slow D: )

Patch 1 - Retail to v1.11.0 450mb
Patch 2 - v1.11.0 to v1.11.2 5mb
Patch 3 - v1.11.2 to v1.12.0 16mb
Patch 4 - v1.12.0 to v2.0.1 700mb

I -think- this is all that's required (I'd also suggest booting up WoW after each install). I've not used this method before so... hopefully it works - someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Any preference for a time Tim?

I'm good for whenever... we should do a ragefire chasm raid . Give it a few days for everyone to level a bit + get to grips with the game, so say... how's Sunday evening for everyone?

There's no need to patch anything skipp - what you're downloading is the entire thing. You may need one very small patch at the end, but only people with the CDs normally need to download the patches. Have you got the downloader port open AlphaWhiskey? because i normally get my download speed from it.

Well, if you're playing with us, you'll need horde. Horde are orcs, trolls, tauren and undead. Soo, go for the cow.

I'm mid way through writing a little guide funny enough .

Yay for cows.


Yeah, wasn't sure about the installer, thankfully they've changed it. Patches were a nightmare for me.

If you hadn't of chosen bloody Horde! Lol :p

Being a WoW geek with way too many level 60s to want to admit; I only managed to get one Horde character past the level 20 mark because of 'The Barrens'.

Oh my, what a dreaded place that is. Luckily I'm quite addicted to my Horde charcter now - it's more fun than alliance once you're past the Barrens section. Unfortunantly you need to do most of (if not all) the barren quests cause of all the rewards, cash and exp you get from them.

I may create a character though... not sure yet >_>

Ya'know what - Bugger it, I will.

I'm having some shit with my current guild in-game anyway. If I begun to tell you guys the half of the crap that went on in my current raiding guild you would laugh fairly hard x_X

But which class... Shaman, 'lock or Huntard come to mind. Maybe a Rogue.... hmmmz *ponders*

Well, i've gone for an undead warrior, so i can get a big thing to hit people with cos that appeals to me and as I'm the only one I could use some backup....?

We seem to be a bit short on Rogues, but Hunters, ranged weapons could be very useful to me while I'm being mobbed....

Whoops, better go do some work. laters.

I'm coming in as a warrior too, as I thought it'd be simple just taking my opponents limbs off with a large sharp thing!

so will that be enough warriors?

My main character is a Warrior - and it's not all it's glammed up to be. Don't get me wrong, it's fun for sure.

But you quickly will find yourself slapping sword n' board on when delving into dungeons and you'll get the micky taken out of you for suggesting you can do more 'DPS' (Damage per second - typically phrase for hurting stuff) or at least keep up with 'real' DPS classes.

None the less, Warriors are good fun. They also help with Pocket Healers xD

If you guys are going to be warriors i'll jump in as a undead rogue. Love the animations for them anyway.

Also yes, warriors can learn every weapon available except Wands. You need to go to the appropriate city where the weapon master is located and demand he teach you them... also slip him some silver =P

You'll go from 1handers to duel wielding (Requires a skill a level 10 I believe. Could be level 20) or 2handing it.

In all honesty, nobody does - but you find a much higher level and average age of player on RP servers. 99.9% of people don't actually use thee-speak, but they use proper English and you don't have people running up to you, opening the trade window and whispering "1G!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1"

Yus - warriors can use any weapon if they train in it except wands (you can train at the 3 major cities - ogrimmar, thunder bluff and the undercity), including 2 handed maces and axes ;).

Warriors *can* squeeze out as much DPS as a rogue if they're specced and geared right. I've seen fury + arms 2H warriors keep up with rogues in raids, the main problem they have is that rage starts at 0 while energy starts at 100... so while rogues can start sinister striking from the start, warriors have to wait to build up the rage to get heroic strikes out. Then again, it's a toss up, warriors get to wear plate armour and, if you so wish can easilly be respecced to tankmode. Though er, druids in bear form seem to be the tank of choice for a fair few guilds since the rage nerf.

Ouch. I feel your pain - there's a new patch out too. That'll be about 2 extra download hours for yah. D:

Anyways - we could really do with a one or two more healers (priest/druid) - unless Finnbar can play anytime, anyplace.
