Sixth 'View From The Bottom' Available
6:58 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Spiderweb Software's Jeff Vogel has released his sixth View From The Bottom, a series of editorials hosted by RPG Vault which cover everything from independent game development to MMORPG addiction. His latest View offers a humorous guide to newcomers entering the massively multiplayer world of online games such as World of Warcraft.

In the beginning, you will be a noob - alone, shivering and afraid, with no armor or weapons to speak of. You will be quarantined in a beginner's area, where you will slap haplessly at your keyboard, drool on yourself, and kill wimpy monsters that you can handle. You will get and complete quests to kill 10 goblin toddlers or gather 70 bricks and take them to Farmer Joe so he can complete his pile of bricks.

As time goes on, you may notice that other people are around, beating up the same toddlers and grabbing the same bricks. You may team up with them, in quivering little groups of two and three. You will start learning about the other sorts of characters and their capabilities. You will learn the chat shortcuts and acronyms (like LOL = Laugh Out Loud and NOOB = you). You will learn not to get up to go get a Coke in the middle of a fight, FOR GOD'S SAKE.
