    Of course I want to get Wow :D I have been playing the 21 day trail of CoH and I LOVE that game! Defently going to get that and WoW when I have some free time. Have to be on my PC I built cause I'm still stuck with my 450 G4 :p How does WoW play on 56k? Cause CoH plays quite well on it.

    WoW will play even better than CoH I expect. Except for our server always going down or lagging.

    I need to get used to playing WoW and pick a chcracter I like first (Take a wild guess at the race :D ) before I do any raids. I was just wondering about soloing and small groups, 2 to 5. Oh, and how long of a wait can I expect to patch it from retail to current? I am hoping not a lifetime :p

    Assuming you mean Tauren, keep in mind that Taurens are with the Horde and we are playing Alliance.

    Shoot, all my character ideas are for Tauren and Orcs :( I guess I could create a dwarf or night elf character to play with the clan. Any suggestions on a class to play with either of these kepping in mind that I like to be on the front lines and tank most of the time? Although I am willing to try other things as well :)

    Dwarf Warrior - I think you'll like it. You don't want to be a Night Elf. The Dwarves have pretty much the best atmosphere / personality in the game, or at least tie the Tauren and Orcs.

    That's good. How are the Shamen and Druid classes? I have liked these hybed classes in other non MMO rpg games before. Are there and classes that are a mix warrior and magic? Cause plain warrior is kinda boring :P

    Only Night Elves can be Druids on the Alliance side. Shaman is a Horde class.

    If you don't want a raw Warrior, then maybe a Dwarf Paladin?

    Paladin might be something you would enjoy. I personally just respecced my Priest to Shadow, and the massive DPS I pump out is refreshingly fun compared to sitting around healing people.

    I know we need Paladins, but it really is a secondary healing / buffing / debuffing / offtanking class. You'll find as you get higher that you'll be less and less "on the front lines".

    With a 56k? You might want to get started before the fall term starts. Today's update to 1.6 was 21M.

    The paladins were needed badly in MC. We basically failed there becaue we didnt have enough.

    You should be able to download the cumulative 1.6 patch from 3dgamers, and I'm sure you could use a program like GetRight to pause and restart the download. The full patch will be a hundred-something megs.

    A hundred or so isn't so bad, I've done that before. I also have GetRight, so that should work out fine. Sounds like I'll play a Dwarf fighter and Tauren shamen when I start. Prob try a few other combinations as well. Anything but human, because you ARE human everyday so why bother? :D :P

    It takes long enough to get ONE character to 60. Pick one and stick with it; that's why there people call characters their "Main" versus their "Alts".

    That said, dwarf priest is cool. they have Fear Ward, which works nicely in higher raid areas where being Feared into traps is a major problem. If you want the DPS though, go Rogue.
