As I recall, WoW has always had a certain cartoonish look. It really wasn't intended to look particularly realistic.

Sure not - but that is one possible explanation why there is less lag.

yeah its supposed to be Cartoony, and im not comparing it to URU... If i had to choose between the two i'd choose any Myst game without a 2nd thought.

nah, theres probably less lag cause they can afford HUGE amount of servers... think about it they have 8+ Million subscribers each paying $15 (USD) a month.

Theres lots of downsides compared to URU anyway...

URU is a worldwide server (WoW is not)
at times WoW can be really laggy (its an MMO you expect it too though)
sometimes the servers down for days at the weekly maintenance.
the final one... its not MYST ^^

You need to be 58 to get through the portal so I need to grind a few more levels first.

I'm resisting the urge of getting it and playing it. Must continue resisting the urge.

although, I did unlock my WoW account ... from the depths of its depraved self-inflicted lockout from when I fled last April.

Must continue resisting!

heh if anyone plays Horde on Silver hand...

Moleque
62 Troll Mage
Silver Hand

pvp Rank - Blood Guard
Guild - Core

PHAT cash in them outlands... now the freaky part


Selling/disenchanting purples for Burning Crusade GREENS!!!!!

EDIT - 70 in 27hours? Highly doubt it. Rested xp only gives 1000 - 1500xp per kill then it drops to 200-700. so if he did it with his guild... Half all of that. Even running Outlands for 27hrs straight solo couldnt net you enough xp to get to 70. we have a guildie that has the week off...been running the areas straight since launch of TBC. hes only 66...he was also a beta player from the start and knows where to level and get the good xp.
