Cool... I put this post up, and thought I wouldn't get any responses. I've been out for most of the day and just got back.. its late, but thought I'd check. Yeah, I'm a big gamer, especially the whole MMORPG genre. Used to be a HUGE Shadowbane player, a very hardcore PvP game that me and some guys up at work play days on end for almost 2 years. Then WoW came out, and our whole guild couldn't wait for it (approx. 300 of us), then it came around but unfortunately the PvP was very weak. However, graphics are tops, environment is huge, great PvE, and the communities are enormous. We played it for a good while, got our chars up to about lvl 50 (2 accounts - easy PL'ing, so 8 chars I think..) and then quit after about a years worth. My main was a gnome rogue. Frenetic, Sakki, Zukki, were the most played Alias'.
Its a great game, and there is way more to it than just going out and killing monsters.... its definatley not your typical Nintendo game. Its more of a lifestyle... be prepared to give up reality! The best thing about MMORPG'S, is that you are playing against realy people, thousands of them. And you can even go house to house, knock on doors, and wont get yelled at! You wont know how engrossing this game can be until you actually play it... all MMO's for that matter.
Haven't played in a while, but was thinking about starting it up again this weekend.
As far as pc specs, more important than your processor speed, is your graphics card. I wont go into what makes a good graphics card, but that is number one when it comes to 3D games such as this one...
