World of Warcraft from an EQ Perspective
10:13 AM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story

Gamers eagerly awaiting Blizzard's upcoming Massively Multi-player RPG, World of Warcarft, may be interested in the latest preview of the game. Posted on by a former hardcore Everquest player, the article provides a look at WoW from a gamer already very familiar with the genre. Here's a snippet from the article:

Like many people across the world, I spent a countless amount of time and money on a little game called EverQuest. Iíd get home and play for five hours, do some work, play some more, get some sleep and then repeat the next day. It was a vicious cycle that caused my real life to grind to a halt.

This eventually led me quitting the game forever and declaring I would not get sucked in by another massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) again. Iíve done very well for over four years, but unfortunately it is time for me to break that vow, for World of Warcraft will soon be upon us.

World of Warcraft could be the next big thing when it is released later this summer. Using the very popular Warcraft franchise and the familiar setting of Azeroth, players are instantly familiar with the game characters and settings. The first thing to do is create your character. All the familiar races are here, separated into two factions. The Alliance is made up of the Humans, Night Elves, Dwarves and Gnomes. The Horde is made up of the Orcs, Tauren, Undead, and Trolls. Each race has certain classes, such as Hunter, Paladin, Rogue, and Shaman, that your character can be. Once the race and class for your character is chosen, itís time to customize your look through body type, hair, and other features that give your character a unique look and feel. Much like the rest of the game, the character creation process is very streamlined and easy to use. In minutes youíll be in the world of Warcraft.
