    Anyone in here that plays it? Quite possibly one of the most time consuming games out right now, but there's so much to do. The fact that they added so many easter eggs in it doesn't help it much. Here's a few:

    The UnderCity: There are things only the dead can see. I haven't found anything yet, but appearently there's supposed to be ghosts wandering around. Also, if you walk through the area where the bells are and into the throne room, you can hear through the crowds cheering and the bells ringing, reminiscent of Arthas' return to Lordaeron. You can go through the whole cinematic.

    The Sepulcher: One of the Dalaran wizards from a mission in WarCraft III makes an appearance here. He's standing in front of one of the gravestones, obviously dead.

    Diablo reference: Aside from the Collector's Edition Mini Diablo, you can use Wirt's Third Leg as a one-handed mace.

    Lord of the Rings: The male human has a huge Lord of the Rings reference as one of his /silly commands. It goes on for about a minute or so, but it's absolutely hilarious. You can also fish for The 1 Ring. Not as good as The 2 Ring.

    Ironforge: Want to see a glimpse of what Old Ironforge looked like? Die first, then go as a ghost to where Bronzebeard is. On either side of the enterance way are two locked doors which ghosts can go through, and one of them leads to Old Ironforge. There isn't much there, but it's still interesting.

    Shrine of the Fallen Hero: Another thing that only the dead can get to. It's in The Barrens by the Crossroads. When you get there, there's a Spirit Healer, as well as the body of a fallen orc. On the shrine are the letters MK, which stand for Michel Kioter. He was one of the artists who worked at Blizzard, but died last year unexpectedly at the age of 19 (in fact, the anniversery is coming up in 5 days). Sad, but quite possibly one of the coolest easter eggs in the game. You can read more about it here.

    Un'Goro Crater: Possibly one of the weirdest places in the game. Here you will find references to just about anything, whether it's The Legend of Zelda, Lost Vikings, Donkey Kong, or even Star Trek, chances are, you will find a reference of some sort in there.

    That's only a taste, but there's tons more. You just have to go look around.

    My roommate plays it about 23 hours a day, as a result, he doesn't shower. I hate WoW.

    That's really sad. He's throwing his life away for a game that is no benefit to him.

    Its sad, but I don't have a bit of sympathy for him. This isn't a mental disability or sickness that can't be cured, and its not an inherited addiction like alcoholism, its a freaking video game he's addicted to. Its his choice to never sleep unless its during an important class, its his choice to never study or do homework and its his choice to play the game as much as he does. Its sad that his life is being thrown out with yesterday's garbage, but I don't feel sorry for him at all. I'll just have the last laugh when I graduate and get a good job and he's working at McDonalds making just enough to pay the fee to play WoW

    I was thinking of buying it.

    But, I feel like ranting right now.
    My friend bought WoW, and gave me his 10 Day Guest Pass.
    I went home, installed the game, went through all that shit, then, I find that to play a free guest pass, you need to put down a fucking credit card number. So, I called Blizzard to ask if there's another way, I sit on the phone for 40 minutes listening to WarCraft 'please hold' music, and when I finally talk to someone, she has an Asian-American accent that I can barely understand, and basically says "No." and hangs up. 40 minutes of holding for a 40 second conversation with a representative. And, I'm done ranting.

    When I conjour up $15 per month to play a game, then I'll think of buying it.

    Pay To Play is a bunch of bullshit. You get absolutely NOTHING out of it. Maybe if you could trade some items for free month's subscription or something...


    I think I know what happens. People pay the monthly fee, then they think "Hey, I paid for this, I'm going to damn well play the hell out of it". At this point, they're hooked. Then their life is worthless. :lol:

    That's the exact thinking of my friend.

    It's kind of like an All-You-Can-Eat buffet. :lol:
