1 - That's entirely up to you, but my personal experience is that Normal servers are vastly preferable. The entire concept behind a PVP server is to encourage world PVP, but the only form of world PVP that really occurs these days is objectives in Outland (not something you'll encounter until the mid-60s) and getting ganked. Getting ganked is generally not fun, and a persistent ganker can actually ruin an entire play session. Ganking is extremely prevalent on PVP servers as many bored veteran players kill time by slaughtering lowbies in leveling zones. There are absolutely no tangible benefits to playing on a PVP server as all meaningful (i.e., rewarding) PVP occurs in Battlegrounds and Arena, which are available to everyone on any server.

2 - That I can't help you with - call or email Blizzard's billing department.

3 - If you don't see Blood Elves (horde) or Draenei (alliance) on the character creation screen, you haven't installed The Burning Crusade.

doesn't he need to go to WOWs website and manually upgrade his account in the account management page to a TBC account? Its been TBC release since I messed with it so I don't really remember.

but yea, run away its a terrible game now and nowhere near as good as it used to be. I'll be leaving 3.5 years of playtime behind in just about 2 weeks, and I wont miss it a bit.

I think you're probably right, yeah.

It's not terrible, you're just tired of it. Nostalgia for Pre-BC aside the game has improved tremendously since release. What's been going on recently with the ridiculous PVE progression curve and Arena e-sport is going to be moot once WotLK comes out anyway.

Stuff like this.. Wrath of the Lich King 10 Minutes Trailer ..is what has kept me interested in WotLK. I don't play a lot, but I still enjoy the game, having played since Dec 04, and seeing whats in store will probably keep me a subscriber for a long while.

Another piece of advice I would offer is stay far, far away from the official wow forums, horrid place.


EDIT: And yes, to echo Ninjaman09, stick with a PvE server. PvP servers are junk now.. on top of that, you have both factions available on a PvE server. Instead of just having one faction on a PvP server - e.g. you make a Horde character, you can't have an alliance character, vice versa.
