Re: WOW for someone who prefers to play solo.
well WoW is not really geared to solo play past 70. If you play solo, you can skip all the group quests and move on. One option once you get 70 is PvP. It does not require to have people to play with, because the servers will queue people together.
IMO, the best part of WoW is the social aspect.
