    Ok, so the main hindrance to me getting into WoW right now is that I am home for break and the parents only have 56k internet access. I fear that if I were to buy the game now it would be, regardless of the speed of my computer, too greatly impeded by the slow internet connection to really be playable. Any thoughts?

    Well to make a long story short. I am living with my parents right now because I moved out of my apartment because i am getting married and wanted out of my lease to move in with my girlfriend. They have 56k and while there are times the game lags it runs good overall (faster internet is not an option where they live except via satellite and the contract is to long). The only major hinderance is the updates. If you install the game it will probably take a good several hours for you to be ready to play. I do all my updates at a friends house who has cable. I should be moving into a new apartment with my gf soon so i will have cable as soon as this happens, thank god. So i say if you have a way to get the updates quickly or dont mind waiting then go ahead and get it, the game itself runs fine on 56k. To my surprise.

    I wonder if the newbie areas are abnormally populated right now because of all the new Christmas customers...
