Addictive indeed. I started playing a couple months ago, not quite at endgame yet but should be soon.
On a tangent, does anyone get SA while playing? Even behind the relative anonymity of the computer I find it hard for me to group up for instance runs, especially for encounters I haven't seen before. I end up spending hours just reading wowwiki and thottbot to prepare so I don't do anything stupid. My friend (who started playing around the same time as me) on the other hand, just jumps into instances as the tank without knowing anything beforehand. I wish I had that confidence, if I did I'd probably be 60 working on getting some decent gear.
In the end though, all my runs turn out fine and are pretty straightforward, and sometimes I'm actually leading everyone. Eh, I guess the elitist attitudes on general chat and the now global lfg channel along with the fact that most people are leveling alts and have been through everything before scares me off. I can't even imagine getting on vent later on if I do raids.
Anyone else feel this?
Sorry for the long *** tangent. WoW is too addictive.
From playing obscene amounts of street fighter against other people I've learned that taking risks and going on the offensive is important for long-term success. Staying on defense and waiting for guaranteed holes the whole match will cripple you. Balance is key. Yeah, lame sig, I know...
