Ya see that is justs it. I like every one else complained that the warrior was way to weak when doing PVP. Yet you said you slaughtered the priest when he was not able to heal. Now this just screams the obvious that this game is not good for PVP and is almost purely a co-op game where you need each charater to complete the quest. That is why you are able to have up to 5 players per group. To me the PVP is useless.

Oh, while I was in Duskwood I was in a group and following at 59 gnome. Well I clicked on him and was about to click the "follow" option when I accidently clicked the duel option. Needless to say he stopped, turned around and said "WTF" he is a guild member btw and knew I accidently clicked duel. Any way a crowd gatherd as usual and I when to work SUNDER, HEROIC ATTACK, Rend, BATTLE SHOUT. Leveling damage left and right even click on blood rage and when psycho on his ankle high ass, all the while he was dancing and doing a jig. We keep laughing out arsses off and i had tears in my eyes from laughing so hard. Finally I got him down to with in a quarter of his health and he made two moves *SLICE* *SLICE* and it was over... on with the quest we went. What did I learn? Don't challeng a lvl 59 rogue when you are a lvl 25 warrior. BAHAHAAH! As if I had to go through that exercise to learn that .

I have my toughts about getting this game but I donīt know if it is
anything I like, I have never played a mmorpg before!

I can tell my general gaming preferences and you tell me if itīs worth a go..

I liked Dungeon Siege and diablo much but LOTR: BFME on the edge to be
too complicated. I do not like management games much.

Vampire: Bloodlines I do like (dont care a lot for the caracter developing
though) but I NEED structured quests therefor Iīm not too fond of
Morrowind.

I love the Myst puzzles and worlds.

I enjoy every fps shooter a lot just as pure adventure games like
Gabriel Knight, Broken Sword, Runaway and Syberia.

So I *think* I want a big beautiful fantasy world to explore in my own pace
without to feel the urge to advance in levels and I donīt want to be stressed
by beeing forced into some fights. I would like some "puzzle" kind of quests
and decently mature gamers to populate this world.. and some easy caracter
building.
Looking at screenshots I like the WoW style a little bit better then the EQ2 style.

Now, will WoW be suitable for me to try.. or maybe EQ2 instead ??

If you liked dungeon siege and diablo then you will like WOW, it's fun and simple to play. I proposed to a guild member with a ham last night

Thats crazy, I sluaghter warriors with my priest with ease. Once 6 lvls higher(i was lvl 32, warrior 38) then me and once 5 lvls(me 36 , warrior 41) higher then me. Have I lost to warriors at those lvls before yes, but any warrior my lvl or a few above me I never lost to. Sounds like your guildie needs more practice with the priest(as do those warriors I killed). The only class I have run in to trouble killing is Shamans with in lvl.

We were not having a real duel, we were testing out what happens if they don't heal. Get a melee weapon next to your cloth and your health runs down very quickly.

Plus I also play the warrior extremely well

Shield, mindblast, Dot, fear, mindblast, mindflay, mindblast and you being 5 lvls lower should have killed you lol. If not priest repeats.

Fear? What is this fear you speak of? Also the shield goes down rather quickly

You can resist the fear sometimes and not instantly. If you do zap the fear off of you it still has done enough to disoriente your postioning and you have to reorganize yourself. I disagress about the shield failing fast. It last long enough to do plenty of damage or heal yourself or let your fear rejuvinate or kyte and dot. BTW, I resist most stuns .. lol

I've grouped with a few high lvl mages with my Shaman(lvl 47) and those guys say that a mage is fun. I've seen them in action and they are a force to be reckon with. My last outing with a mage(Mid 50's) and I watched him rock 5 alliance ranging all in the 40's and fast.

Well I'm not arguing that a priest is a extremely tough fight for a warrior, but generally most people underestimate warriors and get quite a shock when the warrior starts winning

My level 35 killed a 43 undead rogue the other day although I did get healing from a guild mate.

Edit: I've never really seen a mage been too powerful, generally we take one along because polymorph is extremely useful. It could be worse I guess, they could be warlocks

Mages are extremely useful in instances, especially higher level ones. They are capable of dealing more damage than any other class. A good mage and a good warrior along with a priest or pally can take on quite a bit of aggro and keep going. Mages are also completely necessary to get through the end-game raid content. And their CC abilities are nothing to scoff at, either.
