WoW info for a noob

10 posts in this topic

Okay so like 8 years ago or more I played world of warcraft but it was a trial version and they told me to pay, I obviously couldn't cause I was nine YO so I stoped playing but then I made my mother buy the game for me, the full game the first version of the game and so, It came with two codes of 1 month each and in later versions they said you could play for free until lvl 40 so I think with codes and all I have like unitl lvl 40 and then two months But that day when I read that I thought wow! This is shiet, I payed like 80 dollars and they give me only 2 months, this is so bloody unfair Im out goodbye

And I left the game box on a shelf and it got full of dust until some days ago when I heard it had a singleplayer mode and I started to wonder if I could still play it. Problem is in this computer I have no CD box or case or driver or however it is called in english, I have no thing to put CDs inside

So my questions are:

1.- Can I still use my codes to play online? (this is not so important, soon you will understand why)

2.- Can I use my codes to activate the singleplayer version? Cause I have bought the game and Im sure they don't make you pay for playing singleplayer, so I want at least my singleplayer game, which have costed my mother 80 bucks

3.- I am thinking about installing a pirate version to play online, does it have singleplayer? To at least imagine those 80 bucks were spent wisely T-T

 

 

I tried to ask these questions on the official forum but when I made my account I couldn't use the WoW forum so I think I have to buy it to use the forum but I have already bought it and I do not know how to demonstrate I already have it and I am not waiting 9 days just to play the original version so I will check if pirate version has singleplayer and if not just play online until 7 in the morning

 

Also does not make any sense that you have to actualy buy the game to ask these simple questions 

This world is moved by money....

You could at least try to explain to him instead of spouting things like this.

I had to make an account just for this. Next time just don't reply to up your count post.

 

As far for OP, no. There is no such things as single player. I don't know where you had this information but that is false.

The only thing that WoW offers for single players are quests (some requires people), collections (some requires people).. etc etc.

This is not a single player game. It's a MMORPG. Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game.

The costs are fair, 15$USD/month, that is fair for the upkeep. It's standard and it will always be for any online video game in its genre.

 

You don't need to pay the game to post on the official forums.

To uses your CD-Keys, you need to have a Battle.net account and you attach your CD-Keys to it.

If you said 10 years ago, you must only have the normal WoW which.. is almost free nowadays.

Then again, I don't know where you had your infos because there's no such things as "free until 40" it's 20.

 

As for the prices, are you kidding me? lol It's standard. It's how business runs.

You pay the game then you pay your subs. That's how it is.

You pay the game, you pay the subscription fees afterward. You don't want to join the bandwagon?

Go to a private server. :^)

 

It's like you're asking that you want a permit to drive a car since you bought one at 40k and you're like "it's unfair that I need to pay for my license then renew it each years aftewards".

 

Anyways, that's my two cents. I don't want to offend you, it's Sith that made me sour.

All Sith did was inform the OP that he had posted in the wrong section so I'm not sure exactly how he offended you.

OP seemed clueless and I hate people not trying to help.

To me, Sith's comment was just a up post for the post count as many does on many forums instead of trying to help the poor guy.

It's not constructive at all, it's just a redirect.

He could have just left it there with no reply and let a moderator switch his topic to an appropriate sub-forum to receives some help.

 

We're all aware it's the wrong section but nothings stops us to try and help the poor guy.

Saying "hurr it's Heartstone" who cares? It's a Blizzard game. He seemed clueless and needs help.

Today though, someone redirected me to a post about Method and their recent win (grats guys) and at the bottom I stumbled across this post and that made me sour as hell.

That's why I stood up and ran a wall of text. It is biter but I'm typing more words than saying "hurr durrr".

 

Something along ;

Hey buddy, you're on the wrong sub forum! No worries I can try to help. Yes you can uses these codes if they aren't already linked to a B.Net account and no.. sorry there's no singleplayer. It's a MMO. Maybe the singleplayer that you've heard of is playing on a private server which isn't the same magic.

I DON'T KNOW.

 

Oh by the way OP, as for your installation you need to download the Battle.net Application.

You don't need CD/DVD anymore. All you need to do is download their app and BAM! ;D

It is. It is exaggerated. To my point of view, at least I tried to help OP. Hell I created an account just for the sole of it because of Sith.

That just baffled me. Like I said, he could have left the post as it is and let you move the topic.

 

When people come to me to ask for help, I'm not telling them "I'm not a **** I'm a ***".

I'll try to figure out what they want and how can I help.

 

We're supposed to be a community, a source of information and help each others with resources and knowledge.

How do you think OP would think of it? Take a second and think.

"Wow, what a shitty forum. I'mma skip that one and go to another source they're just pointing me I'm on the wrong directions with no guidance whatsoever"

 

Maybe someone else would have answered OP in a proper way after that? Who knows.

I just wanted to share my two cents on the matters.

Come on guys. Yes, Nayuki was correct, in my opinion. If I was Sith and responding, I would have actually been helpful instead of using the mindless "..." at the end of the sentence, and I may have said something like "This isn't the right forum for WoW, you may wish to repost at the wow forum, and here's the LINK to there.

See, I think Nayuki was expounding a load of frustration about the mindless, idiotic, NON-HELPFUL state of a lot of people posting these days. If you aren't gonna be helpful and just spout off (Sith) then shut up and don't post. I had a similar experience recently here where I said PLEASE do not post the canned answer "go sim your character" because that's not what I was asking. So the first guy that posted wrote a PAGE on simming my character. It was all done just to make me look like an idiot, he simply could have said "yer an idiot" if that's how he felt, but instead designed a huge long post that boiled down to "you don't know what yer talking about" and the moderators should well have removed it cuz it wasn't even my question and his response served no purpose to the discussion.

And it's the SAME THING with this Sith. Shut up if you aren't gonna be helpful.

So yeah, I get flustered too with the drivel I see, unfortunately the 'net in a lot of ways has made it easy for some people to be faceless, belittling jerks to others with no consequence.

Cheers to Nayuki, I'm with you on this one. Maybe we should both be moderators :)

If you take a look at Sith's post history, he posts a huge amount in the Hearthstone forums, which by extrapolation most likely means he is a Hearthstone player. The OP asked a number of questions aimed at World of Warcraft, a Blizzard game that may share a similar backstory, but has nothing in common in regards to the way in which the games are played or managed. 

Sith commented saying that the post was in the wrong forum. Evidently, the OP did not know that this was the wrong forum or he would not have commented in the Hearthstone forum. Sith may not know the answer to any of the questions that were asked, since he may never have played WoW. There are huge amounts of HS players that have never touched WoW once.

Yeah, he could have just left the post alone and let a moderator deal with it, but if we were asleep or whatever, the post could have sat there with no answers at all. The OP could have been sat there wondering why nobody was answering his question. Sith answered, gave him the opportunity to remake the post and delete this one. Instead, a moderator was available and moved the post.

I'd also like to state that you seem to be looking to pick a fight with the poster in that other thread, smtips. He gave a perfectly valid response. 

I'm closing this thread.

      We apologise for any confusion caused.

      We have some more class changes on the beta in the new build, with the focus moving o to Fury Warriors, who are getting some really huge changes. The big ones come to Enrage (moving to a Haste and movement buff), Execute getting a cooldown and generating rage, there's also tweaks to Rage generation, Raging Blow, Furious Slash and a lot more.

      We also get some more info on Discipline Priest talents, with the new one mentioned yesterday, Sins of the Many, not currently working, as well as even more tweaks to the spec.
      Fury (source)
      This week's beta build caught the Fury Warrior changes mid-flight, and is an incomplete picture of the overall changes. Work is still underway – the spec is currently being iterated on. To give some more information on the overall direction of the spec, here are some points we are looking to address:
      More tightly adjust/control Enrage uptime and Rage income (both of which heavily impact pacing, flow, and the feel of the spec) throughout the expansion, rather than letting both scale up dramatically as gearing happens. Reduce the amount of stacking damage bonuses on the spec that are available simultaneously, which reduces the desire/need to stack multiple at once, which now feels much worse to do now that virtually all of them are on the global cooldown. Figure out Furious Slash’s place on the spec.
      Enrage
      Getting mad and being better and stronger is definitely still the fantasy of Fury, and Enrage is staying as the spec’s core base mechanic and Mastery. However, Enrage is changing a bit into 25% Haste (still being adjusted) and 10% Movement speed. It’s currently 100% melee attack speed on live, and was 50% melee attack speed previously on Beta. Haste is something that’s much more felt in terms of pacing (button presses, cooldowns compressing) compared to auto attack speed, which mostly gets covered up by ability animations anyways.
      The 20% increased damage taken during Enrage is being removed. Along with this, the 15% passive increased maximum health the spec had is also going away – this was largely added to counteract the increased damage drawback that Enrage had. Now, Fury will simply have the bonus of ~8% more health than other non-tanks in the same gear level, due to being able to dual-wield a pair of 2-handed weapons.
      In terms of Enrage uptime, our current thought is we’d like to try targeting Enrage uptime to around ~60%, and not growing wildly throughout the expansion as gear improves. I think there exists a sweet spot for Enrage uptime where it’s not up so often that it’s taken for granted and you don’t have to think at all about playing around it, but also not so rare that it feels bad.
      Because Enrage uptime is a function of Enrage duration and Rage generation (which is directly proportional to the time in between Rampages), Enrage duration going up means uptime can get too high, which means time in between Rampages can get too high, which then feels bad. Currently, Enrage duration is back to 4 sec, but Rage generation has increased significantly since this round of Fury changes, so the spec should feel much faster now and the uptime on Enrage shouldn’t feel low.
      Raging Blow
      Raging Blow now Generates 12 Rage, has 2 charges, 7.5 sec recharge (reduced by Haste), has a 20% chance to instantly reset its own cooldown, and no longer requires being Enraged to be usable. It’s more similar to the Inner Rage version than the live baseline version, where it has no cooldown but requires Enrage to be usable. Raging Blow is doing a lot of things for the spec here:
      Raging Blow was changed to fit together into Rampage and Bloodthirst, both of which we thought were good and didn’t need any notable changes. Being usable only while Enraged, meant you very frequently pushed it multiple times in a row for 5 Rage each time, which didn’t feel super engaging. Having 2 charges baseline felt better, as a version with either a 6 or 7.5 sec cooldown but no charges meant it collided with Bloodthirst’s cooldown very frequently, which did not feel good. Additionally, charges on Raging Blow is sort of the only actual resource you manage on the spec, since Rage is technically a resource but only spent on Rampage and nothing else. Having a 20% chance to reset itself is the random proc on the baseline spec that adds an amount of unpredictability to the rotation.
      Furious Slash
      Furious Slash didn’t really found its place on the spec. it’s a no-cooldown free filler that didn’t feel great to press, largely as a direct result of being the lowest priority/impact ability by design. The version of Furious Slash you’re seeing this week is a first iteration, where we tried giving it more tie-ins to your core rotation/mechanics: Generates 3 Rage, has 10% chance to trigger Enrage.
      Playing this version some more internally, we thought the button felt better, but still didn’t feel great to press. Additionally, it overlaps some with Whirlwind, which is also a baseline no-cooldown free filler. So we’re going to try removing Furious Slash baseline and making Whirlwind the baseline filler in single-target. Whirlwind has the benefit of having better audio/visual feedback, and generally feeling better to press. It also just fits the fantasy of a whirling blademaster/berserker pretty well. It will generate 3 Rage + 1 additional per target hit, up to a maximum of 8 Rage (this is intended to also speed up the AOE rotation). Furious Slash is being merged together with Frenzy (talent) and becoming a talent in that slot, without the new experimental 10% chance to trigger Enrage mechanic.
      Whirlwind's Meat Cleaver effect
      Whirlwind will now cause your next 2 single-target attacks to gain the effect of striking up to 4 additional targets for 40% damage. With the changes to Raging Blow, it made sense to add Raging Blow to this effect, but at that point the only thing not included was Execute and Furious Slash, so we've added them too.
      Execute
      Execute being a Rage spender caused it replace Rampage entirely during execute range (against enemies below 20% health). We are trying a version of Execute where it has a short 6-sec cooldown, and generates 20 Rage instead of spending it, so that it adds to your rotation and helps fuel your Rampages, rather than replacing one of your core buttons. In the current design of the spec, it feels more correct for Rampage to remain the almighty and only Rage spender, and Execute to be a more support role (rather than the spammed Rage spender), even if it deals similar damage to Rampage on paper (because Execute is available less frequently and Rampage Enrages you).
      Recklessness
      With Enrage no longer coming from Bloodthirst critical strikes and instead coming from Bloodthirst at a consistent 30% rate, the spec no longer has a core critical strike mechanic, and it made less sense to have 100% critical strike chance as Fury’s baseline cooldown. Thinking about it more, 100% critical strike chance would make more sense as Arm’s cooldown, because that spec is slower-paced and more about setting up for fewer, larger hits. Fury is currently much more about flurries of many smaller hits, speed/haste, and Rage generation. To that end, Fury’s cooldown turning into double Rage generation from all sources (and some critical strike chance for flavor) made more sense, both in terms of feel, theme, and gameplay.
      As a side note, one of the upsides of Fury’s resource model is that it can support a huge amount of burst/temporarily increased resource income in a way that feels great (something many other specs can’t do as well), because Rampage spends 85% of the Rage bar – we’re consciously leaning into this more with the Recklessness mechanics changes.
      As always, thanks for all of the feedback.
       
      Discipline (source)
      Quick clarifications (all still subject to ongoing change), since this build was in a slightly intermediate state.
      --Sins isn't correctly working in this build. The buff appears, but isn't increasing damage or Atonement.
      --Tuning is pretty preliminary, but for context on the 75 row, Contrition is likely too strong, because it skews the choice between the modes of Penance too much. Contrition's heal should be weaker than a Penance Atonement, so that it's still a choice about doing more group healing vs. focusing on one target.
      --Also on the 75 row--we're currently planning to replace Orison with Shadow Covenant.
      --Luminous Barrier is still intended to replace Power Word: Barrier, as before.
      --Current plan is to buff Shadow Mend a bit, as mentioned yesterday. Less sure about Power Word: Shield after reviewing more. Shadow Mend was more strongly propped up by Mastery: Reverence.
      We're seeing all the feedback on relative balance of talents within a row, but I don't want to make any claims or promises on which talents might eventually land higher/lower. We just rearranged a lot, and whatever I say will probably be proven wrong once we give a more thorough look and heavier testing happens on beta.
