Default Too late to jump into WoW?

Thinking about picking this up. I play EQ2 since launch, but I want another MMO to play...too late?

I was thinking about that one and just adding it to my station pass for like an extra 6 bucks a month, but I can't find any reviews and such on the game.

I've wondered about this too. I've never even played an MMO before. My plan is to get online with my mate and have him patiently help me through the early parts.

Ack...station pass is 25 a month now. I thought it was 21 before. Oh well. Going on EQ2 to see if my guild can give me a buddy pass to the vanguard game.

Also, you are saying to pass on WoW. I honestly don't want to end up playin Vanguard to find out it's another EQ2. What are the differences between Vanguard and EQ2.

No zones for one... a real penalty if you die but not as annoying as EQ1s. Classes don't feel useless and everyone looks different, no clones...

Combat is nice with the combo capabilities and isn't slow, much like WoW where its nice and speedy.

Only reason I wouldn't go to WoW is theres no learning curve and well the game is too fast for my liking.

I would not waste my time or money with vangaurd for now. Give it atleast 8 months for them to actually finish the game since it is a darn mess. Maybe in a year this game can really turn some heads but right now its a $50 beta. : (

I have been playing WoW for the past year and a half with a 4 month break between that time. If you like great art, great graphics with 60+ fps, pve and pvp and the ability to solo if you want then I say give it a try.

I would say if you have a friend who has got a free 10 day pass?. Then try it out. I used my brothers 10 day pass about 3 weeks ago and then bought the game. I am now on level 12 (as of writing this) on a PVP server and love it . Try it out?.
