World of Warcraft is the Best PVP RPG Computer Game that Includes a Free Trial

If you are bored of your current computer game collection and you are into player verses player and role playing games, you should defiantly start playing World Of Warcraft. This game is extremely fun and entertaining for almost all age groups. The creators of this game sure knew what they were creating when they put together World Of Warcraft. It is a game so amazing that it is known as the most popular computer game of all time. Best of all, it can be played on a Mac or PC.
World Of Warcraft, also known as WOW, is great for many ages. I have met many older adults while playing as well as young elementary school students. The game does take a bit of strategy though so I would not recommend it to any children under the age of 8 unless they are already true gamers at heart and understand the on line gaming world. Many of the people I meet are saved to my friends list. Saving them to my friends list allows us to chat when they are on line. We can also then help each other out during our game play time. You can even party up with your real life friends if you create your characters on the same server. This makes completing quests and any other WOW activity’s much more fun.

I feel like WOW would make a great addition to any computer gamers library. It is worth the purchase. It is a bit pricey to start playing because you have to purchase the keys to activate your software. You can buy the full version of WOW at almost any store that Carry’s computer games. There is also the option of purchasing the keys on line through Blizzard, it is allot cheaper to do it this way. I suggest before purchasing the game that you try it out to make sure you really enjoy it. That is why they offer a 10 day free trial. Go to Blizzards website and download the game to your computer. Then sign up for the ten day free trial. The best thing about the trial is if you like the game after your trial is up, you don’t lose any of your trial games progress. You just upgrade your account and you’ve got your same characters you signed up with in the first place.

If you like what you played and do decide to purchase the full game, keep in mind there is a monthly charge of fifteen dollars. This applys to everyone and there is no way around it. I can tell you though that is it well worth it. I guarantee that you yourself will enjoy World Of Warcraft just as much as everyone else.

World of Warcraft – Echos of Doom and You

Wrath of the Lich King will be upon us in 23 days and Blizzard has already rolled out a major content patch. With this patch we have been given new and exciting options and enhancements for our gaming experience.
The Echoes of Doom have given us:

1.) A new and Improved Talent System

Talent points have been refunded to all characters to allow players to take advantage of the new talent system. In the new system we will have to be more conscious of the choices that we make. Even at level 80 we cannot completely fill a talent tree.

2.) Barber Shops

Now we can change the appearance of our characters for a few gold.

3.) The Achievement System

Characters can now accumulate achievement points for completing specific goals. How these points can be spent is unclear at the moment and Blizzard is not giving out any real information. I am sure that the use of these points will become evident with the release of the expansion.

4.) Improvements to Game Mechanics

Hit rating, critical strike rating, and haste rating now modify both melee and casting.

While these four points are readily seen by players there are many other changes going on behind the scenes. The patch gives us bit a taste of the Wrath of the Lich King expansion and there is much more to come.

Of course every major content patch has its inherent problems. We are experiencing in game lag that is much worse than normal and the calendar system is not up to par but Blizzard has stated that they are working diligently to correct the problems. I for one believe them.

There are those who whine and complain about blizzard, but having been in the MMO game genre for more than 10 years I can tell you that compared to other companies Blizzard is doing a wonderful job.

Before complaining think about this, I was an EverQuest player for over 7 years. In that time there was never a free content patch and 15 expansions. In the time that World of Warcraft has been on the market there have been numerous free major content patches and only 2 expansions.

Had you been playing a Sony Online Entertainment game the Echoes of Doom patch would have been put in a box and sold to you for $39.95. Then a month or so later the main expansion would have hit the shelves and you guessed it another $40 bucks. My words of advice to those who “hate” Blizzards is that you should be happy that a company is willing to both give you major content patches for free and have customer service that actually cares about you.

Tips for Winning World of Warcraft’s Stranglethorn Vale Fishing Extravaganza

If you are a fisherman in World of Warcraft, you know all about the Sunday Fishing Extravaganza in Stranglethorn Vale. The goal being to bring in forty tastyfish before anyone else can. Between the two prizes for winning, and the three rare fish you may find that gives you even more goodies, fishing in the tournament is a fun activity. You can win a fishing hat, some fishing boots, special fishing line, or a great fishing pole. Keeping in mind that the winning prizes are all soulbound, you really shouldn’t win this more than twice or else it’s just rude. If you haven’t won yet, there are some tips on how to get yourself and your trusty fishing pole into the winners circle.
Location, location, location

Stake out your location before the call goes out for the start of the tournament. You’ll find the tastyfish pools about every 150 meters or so, and they have a respawn rate of about 5-7 minutes. They stay about the same, so try to memorize where the spawns come up.

Speed

You’ll be more apt to win if you can move between the fishing pool spawns quickly. Getting plenty of swim speed potions beforehand will help. Having a speed spell, or a mount, is another way to get between the pools quicker and help keep you one step ahead of the rest.

Tricks of the Trade

Tastyfish are soulbound and expire four hours after the start of the fishing tournament. This keeps you from keeping them until the next tournament.

Practice

Practice your fishing so that you know where you’ll need to stand to cast your line in the middle of the tastyfish pools. As there are anywhere from two to five tastyfish per node you’ll either have to find pools that are yours alone, or fight with others for the one or two you can pull out first. Casting your line correctly the first time may buy you a little time.

More than Two, Move on

If there are already two people fishing a spawn pool, move on to the next one. Usually by the time you unmount and throw your line the fish will be gone before you’ve caught one. This time could be better spent going to the next node and fishing out your tastyfish.

Get in the Water

Meaning; don’t swim unless you don’t have a mount and are loaded up on swim speed potions. Stay just to the water’s edge, keeping free from the Stranglethorn Vale bloodsail buccaneers, the Naga, and the crocodiles. You will still be able to be mounted, or run with speed, and get to the pools quicker without getting the monsters aggro’ed.
