I started to play World of Warcraft (WoW), a MMORG (Massive Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game), a half year ago. Now, it’s time to recapitulate the time i spent in this virtual game world.
The name of my avatar is Lúthien, a female druid beeing a night elve. Playing WoW, you have to choose in what way you want to play. There are roleplay servers and normal server. People playing on the roleplay server realy want to play the game as a true roleplay. First, all the avatars have names that follows naming conventions. You can’t name an elvish “Tungdil Steinbrecher” because that would be a typical name of a dwarve. Your behaviour should match your race too. But you’re alway free how to interpret your own character in the game In my case I’m playing a female fashionably druid, roaming forests and helping low skilled heros when they get attacked by wild animals. I’m able to transform into a fast panther, powerful bear, roaming gepard and of course a powerful Moonkin, a strange human beeing, looking like a bear going on two foots with deer antlers in an owl dress. Can you imagine? It looks quite funny ^^
I played the first two versions of Guildwars too. So I can compare them right. In Guildwars you have a very good story that is linear. In WoW it’s not that linear. You have quests and sometimes some quests that are based on other ones. You realy can play without to worry about the big story behind. It’s more a story beside the game you get by reading books you get in the game or on the internet and booklets. I would apreciate if the story in WoW would be better integrated like in Guildwars. On the other hand, you are free to create your own story and that opens lots more possibilities. Sometimes, some guilds post on their websites messages about attacking a town of another party. That’s great imagine an army of h
Humans, Elves, Dwarves and Gnomes attacking a town of Orks.
World of Warcraft is really a great game. You can enjoy it alone. But entering a guild the game gets a new dimension of social gaming. Next weekend we have a guild meeting where the guild leader is changing my status as invited guest of the guild to a real member of it. Well, the location isn’t known be the members, only by the leader. We’ll getting the location somewhere in the World Of Warcraft early enough. I think I should prepare a little speech on getting a member and getting into the hole conspiracy of the guild and buy some beer in the main city Ironforge of the dwarves and some fireworks from the gnomes from Gnomeregan to celebrate it with the other guild members.
So, if you find a group of drunk avatars, that’s my guild
