Hopefully, we will have a full review ready soon after the release in January 2007.

I never did get into WoW.

Tried the trial for 10 days. Was very repetitive and too time consuming.

I prefer Phantasy Star Online.

Still, it'll be interesting to see how many WoW players get this expansion. =O

Nope, you'll be paying separately for Burning Crusade when it becomes available.

Yes, but I suspect that a 653MB patch may have some connection to it. Perhaps the game engine needs a major update to support it?

What's sold with TBC is a new zone etc. All the new talents, skills and engine tweaks are part of the patch.

This sucks though, I really dont want to face paladins in battle.
Which is why I usually play alliance, I have a 60 UD mage...and fighting a pally isnt any fun. Dueling them with my Hunter isnt that great either.
I dont mind openly attacking any class.....with the exception of an equally geared pally = (

Depends on your class. Some classes eat others alive.

As a Shaman, the only class that can be problematic is a Stunlocking Rogue. As a Warlock.. the only class is a Shaman really.

The only Paladins that can be a problem are those not trying to be Warriors.

Looks like rogues have been nerfed in the latest patch.

My friend is level 60, and can now hardly touch other level 60's.

Don't know if it is intentional or a screw up?

About 80% of the bugs identified in the PTRs made it into Live. GG Blizz.

All seems a bit messed up.

Most of my guild members are not playing now and my main play buddy, a rogue, is talking about quitting altogether.

My druid is fine, but that's mot much consolation when most of your friends are unhappy.

Rogues were already weak against most classes, most especially rogues specced for PvE.

I quit playing my rogue a few months ago. I was in a raiding guild for months on end, but the guild fell apart when I went to basic training. After being in a raiding guild, it seems like doing anything else is simply too pedestrian in the game. I suppose it's better this way; far too many hours of my life were sucked into that game.

I play mostly 5-6 hours a week, so less than an hour a day.

However my hunter with Beastmaster spec simply owns. I use to get crushed by casters (still have an issue with warlocks because of their instant casts now) but its not the hunter you have to worry about.
Its my damn cat hitting you while I"m @ range, I love it.

My arcane shot got buffed to hell. I see myself at least 1/7 times hitting for at least 1k with that thing. I simply love my hunter now - especially with full pvp gear

I'm not sorry for that actually. Rogues are so overpopulated on PvP servers. I can't go anywhere without some laggy Rogue Cheapshotting me before proceeding to run around me in a frenzy.

And yes, I can't wait for Arcane Shot to be slapped with the nerf bat

So I'd guess it's back to CSS then and DOD? My friend says that playing with little swords beyond 12 may have undesired effects !
