It's so terrible! I sit there and think about how possible it would be to just never sleep because I'm playing it so much. No wonder college kids fail classes because of it!

Don't you have to pay monthly fees to play it online?

I can play like crazy for two more weeks then I have to cut it down because my new semester starts. If I don't I'll be in big trouble!

My sister has started playing it recently. She disappears for hours at a time. Everytime I try to get her to explain the game to me, she responds, "Not now, I'm busy!"

It seemed for the first few days, all she did was kill boars .

he's the short version of what the game is...

World of Warcraft (WoW) stems from a lines of Warcraft real-time strategies. Two factions, alliance and the horde, at war with each other. Now instead of controlling the troops yourself, you get to play one in an epic battle to defeat your enemy! err..little dramatic.....but anyway.

WoW is a mass multiplayer online role playing game. You play a character from either the Alliance or the Horde amongst a bunch of other people in a vast fantasy world complete with towns, creatures, NPC's (non-player characters) to talk, tradeskills, in game economy, and E-bay...hehe..the auction house.

Pick your profession! Warrior, Mage, Priest, Druid, Rogue, Hunter, shaman (horde only), Paladin (alliance only), and Warlock. May have missed one. anyway, each have their own abilities especially when teaming with other players. Start doing quests to level up your toon and make them more powerful by acquiring items. Follow the story, there's a long history behind everything you interact with during your quests.

Tradeskills are cool. You can become a blacksmith for example and make your own armor and weapons. But in order to do so you must have the right materials to make that item. Some of the items can be found out in the environment, like copper ore can be mined from copper veins....if you have the mining skill then you're set...if not, find another player who is or just go to the auction house and bid on some copper. This is just one example.

Auction House. This is the in-game Ebay. If you have an item that you want to sell then put it here cause selling it to the vendor won't get you as much. Good place to sell materials, like ores, leathers, enchanting components, herbs, etc.

Not too short but it gives you an idea of what the game is about. I will also say that the game is just nice to look at, the world large and world literally take you about 30 minutes (maybe longer) to run from one end to the other....for each continent. Seemless zoning, means that there is no loading time going to one zone to another. So, if I did run from tip to tip, I would never see the 'loading' screen. Anyway, I've blabbed enough. lol
