    So on Tuesday, January 16th, most of your friends will be locked away trying out the new areas and new races made available to the most popular pay-for-play online game ever created, World of Warcraft.

    My question is ... other than myself and a few of my buddies at work ... is anyone planning to pick it up, re-activate their accounts, and go nuts?

    To lead up to the expansion Blizzard has had "Burning Legions" invading the major cities. Nothing like watching a Level 65 Elite do a AOE Shadowbolt blast that kills EVERYONE except for a couple of level 60's with high stamina.

    :D

    Are you going to take your existing character and enter the Outlands, or re-roll a Blood Elf/Drenei?

    Personally, I plan to roll a Drenei Paladin. Have you SEEN their racial stats/passive traits?

    www.worldofwarcraft.com

    And click the flash site for the expansion.

    If a GM asks questions, say that one of your competitor stores broke the street date. ;)

    Even if you installed it, you can't access the content until the 16th.

    Some preorder people have it already.

    Aw, shit! I missed out on that.:(  I haven't played WoW in a long time, and boy do I miss it a whole lot.:( 

    Though I gonna preorder it at GameStop tomorrow and pick it up either Tuesday or Wednesday.

    With the expansion pack, I would so love to play WoW. And since I'm also getting high speed internet this monday and how I have a new computer 100% spyware free, playing WoW again won't be a problem.

    However, with my college schedule, I will only be able to play WoW once a week.

    I'm hoping on getting the CE of Burning Crusade to go along with my vanilla WoW CE. My friend reactivated my account for me last month and I renewed it myself yesterday so I can atleast checkout BC. I won't reroll since it took me forever to get one character to 60 (I'm the definition of casual player)

    Also flying mount prices seem to be crazy (and the first one is only the 60% speed boost), especially to me since I don't do any raiding and never get good stuffs to sell.

    Still not a fan of WoW's game mechanics and all, but I hope it continues to do well, and that the expansion does extremely well. It'll help get other more appealing (to me) MMO's made. Yay!

    I'm probably not going to pick it up for a while. Seems you can't enter the outlands till you're at least level 55. I'm only at 31 right now.

    EDIT: correction, according to blizzard's site, you need to be level 58 to pass through the portal.

    I recently sold my lvl 60 Dwarf Hunter with epic mount and almost full set of Beaststalker armor (haven't played it for a year before I sold it). I *may* buy WoW and expansion again just to play blood elf but I got no free time left now that I am married. Sigh.

    Who is planning to get the Collectors Edition?

    Doing a midnight WalMart run with two friends for an allnight, all day play-fest. Want to make a Drenei Paladin, with the melee attack boost and the ability to have a boost in all healing spells, the Drenei will be the new definition of "tank".

    I havent decided which one Im getting yet. Yhe collectors edition looks freakin sweet. with all of the bonus material (mousepad, in-game pet, behind the scenes DVD & Book) but im not sure on how many copies I got onhand since I got only 1 case in and a shipper of the standard edition.

    I'm gonna try a Drenei Shaman, but I gotta wait until Tuesday night to play. I gotta work and Hiro Prime is running a SW RPG session that I cannot miss (plus the new starting areas are gonna be lagtastic with everybody playing the new races... guess no run to Gnomergon this week :(  )

    Don't do Gnomer. Do SM. Much better loot. Plus you can just reset it time and time again to get the rare spawns.
