Re: Newb WOW Questions
Depends alot on which class you play. Hunters are great at soloing, warlocks are good too. A lot of the fun comes from getting new powers every other level and from spending your talent points, which you get every level starting at lvl10. The classes usually get their class defining powers at lvl 10 and 20.
A lot of the quests you're gonna need help on, and there's usually other people in a zone that will help out. It's easy to find a pick up group for instances and such, but you may end up fighting over loot, or find that some members will leave halfway though. A good guild will plan instance runs and share the loot fairly.
Really, compared to other MMO's, it's easy to play solo in WOW. But it's not as fun. The classes are designed to complement each other. It's an MMO, your supposed to interact with others. Try joining a large guild. It's easier to come and go on your own time and you don't have to commit yourself as much, but there are still players to help you out.
If you want to play a great RPG by yourself, wait for ES:Oblivion in March. I know I am!
