      There was a time when I was ignorant to this fantasy world, which only existed within the realms of internet space and imagination, when I had too much free time on my hands and sought to soak some of it up. A friend and I, finally faltering from the latest World of Warcraft ad banner, decided to purchase the demo (for a bargain two dollars at our local GameStop) and wet our feet in WoW’s virtual water.

      For a time, the game was nothing but fun. I cannot stress this point enough, if you are not having fun doing something, what would be the purpose of doing it at all? The


      biggest drawing factor of the game, to me, was being able to play with all my friends. Because of school and work schedules, we could never hang out, so an online multiplayer game was perfect for us.

      At times, the game really does seem like a grind. Just endlessly killing monsters and other creatures for experience points with no real thrill behind it; lots of quests in the game follow the same formula, “Kill *X* for *Y*” or “Kill *X* amount of *Y*”. However, that can be completely overlooked if you happen to be into Warcraft Lore, and enjoy reading each quest and seeing what the results turn up.

      My advice to ...


      • any avid gamer is to find a guild in-game; a collection of players who join together form a guild, to which they can invite more players to join. It’s like having your own community: you even get a special chat channel to talk with guild members. Why join a guild? While you’re spending your time traveling to the next area, or questing, it’s always nice to have interesting people to talk to, especially if they share your sense of humour. Speaking of which, the World of Warcraft consists of a special brand of humour that you’ll get acquainted with (one way or another). World of Murlocs, anyone?

        Overall, the game is a

        load of fun, whether you’re a solo player or looking to make some new friends (by the way, almost all the players are very friendly). It does, however, require a good investment of time and money. At fifteen dollars a month (180 a year), it begins to get a bit pricey, but Blizzard (creators of World of Warcraft) is a business like any other, and with a game that is constantly updating with brand new content (two expansion packs in two years, new content patches every few months or so), it is well worth it’s weight.

        The free trial lasts ten days and is more than enough time to immerse yourself into the world.
