    You get an advertisement in-game on the character select screen which forwards you to an online upgrade to the battle chest for a fiver.

    As I mentioned before, you can be any race even in vanilla now, including a Panda.

    Unless you are joining a guild or have hit level 20 and wish to level higher, I wouldn't bother upgrading just yet, since your account will no longer be free to play (ie considered an unlimited trial).

    The chest for a fiver was a limited time offer a couple of months ago to celebrate WoW's 7th anniversary in Europe. It's 9.99 at the moment.

    It's not if you upgrade by clicking the in-game advert that you see while playing on a starter account. I literally did it last week.

    Considering the next expansion is likely to be Burning Legion related, it would be an ideal opportunity for them to do something with Outland tbh.

    Yeah, it's a shame to see it all gone to waste.

    The current guy I'm leveling only has a couple of guild XP bits on, and I went from 58-68 in Hellfire alone. I had to force myself to go to Nagrand to do the safari quests and the poo quests because it's a bit of a tradition.

    Blink and it's over. It's a real shame.

    Nagrand was a nice zone.

    Nagrand was a lovely zone with horrible quests. Kill 60 of this, kill 50 of that.

    I loved the Hemet Nesingwary quests with the gradual build up to the monster variant of the 150 x you've just been killing.

    The questline that involves espionage to forge a war between ogre factions was pretty fun too.

    The Battle chest upgrade is now 8 or 10euros, for those who want it.

    It's actually 5 if you do it through the ingame advert while using a starter account.

    This is with a starter account. The advert displays this.

    I know everyone says it gets a lot more fun in the later levels of the game, but I just don't feel like I can be bothered to play the game that it is until then.

    I'm being attacked by monkeys, which are beyond tedious, then I can't get to grips with the mouse & keyboard controls and I feel like I'm being treated like a child with the early quests. Just not enjoyable.

    Well done on copying & pasting? So because I don't feel comfortable with a mouse & keyboard to game, I must be a child. Right.

    @Matt36

    I always found the questing in WoW tedious. Got a fair deal of enjoyment from running dungeons though, which you could try. When I last played you could level fairly quickly from 15+ using the dungeon finder and just work your way through the dungeons without ever having to really set foot in the world.

    But that takes away from all the fun exploring and world discovery and things!

    Or have they streamlined all that now too? [i.e. I loved it, it's not for everyone]

    The game doesn't suddenly get fun when you hit end game. "End game" is suppose to happen organically as part of the curve, which then in turn starts a new curve.

    Cuuuurrrrrvvveeees.

    If you're not enjoying it after what, a month? time to knock it on the head and move on. The world either clicks or it doesn't.

    Hi guys,

    For my sins, I've recently got back in to WoW after a long absence. I was raiding back in TBC but haven't touched the game since.

    Myself a three other guys from the 360 clan I belong to have all started afresh. What we would like though is a nice, UK based, guild to call home. Somewhere you can have a sensible chat and get to know people rather than one full of children would be good.

    We're on Thunderhorn and it's a long shot, I know, but thought I would ask in here if anyone had any suggestions?

    The server I`m on is slowly dieing but we have a decent enough guild. Small, sociable and just capable of putting out regular 10 man raids in throne of thunder (new raid instance).

    English spoken with some euro peeps. bloodscalp eu horde side. Welcome to join us but be aware that its not the busiest of servers although no where near the quietest...

    Anyway, good luck in finding somewhere to call home. Better to do some research on server populations before you guys level up too far.

    I'm still really enjoying my return to this.

    There's just something about WoW. I've tried to prefer newer MMOs like GW2 but something about WoW still makes it the better game. It just feels right.

    Indeed. Even though I really dislike the current expansion, and it's utterly confusing endgame progression path, it'll always feel like home in some fashion. Been quite enjoying levelling a monk with triple XP from the Recruit A Friend program.

    I really wanted to like Guild Wars 2, but I found everything so confusing, especially all the abilities and talents you get bombarded with right at the get-go.

    I was pretty quick to slag off Tera during the beta, but I actually quite enjoy it now. Easily the prettiest MMO out right now and the 3rd person aiming system works surprisingly well.
