Re: Too late to jump into WoW?
There's never been a better time to start playing WoW with the new races and the fact that the endgame has been drastically changed to allow anyone to advance and gear up regardless of your play preference (PVP, small group instances, raiding). It takes a significant time investment to level to 70, but not an eternity, as that is when you really start playing your character. I'd advise strongly against listening to people who criticize the game's relatively short leveling process as they are "missing the point" more or less.
