    Sorry for the Necro, just wanted to pop back and say thank you for everyone who gave me advice on this thread back when I began playing. I did power through the horrible dungeons and ended up a Blood Elf Priest and now raid fervently with a bunch of nice people, in a lovely community, and barring the occasional HC Dungeon with a horrific group (which I promptly bitch about on healing forums) I'm really glad I kept at it. Thank you all for your support.

    Stay tuned, probably Monday.
    Hehe, if you notice it's actually a really, really old necro. My last post there was just a sort of backtrack to thank all of the people here who were nice and helpful to me when I began the game. It gave me hope, and with determination, I ended up making something very good for myself out of the game

    Because there is no reason to be nice to anyone on your server thanks to random group finder tools and most people are naturally cocksucking assholes without threat of being blackballed.
    I've seen what's over the mountain, and you don't have anything to be dancing about.

    This fact will not deter me from answering the question everyone yearns to know!

    I have on many occasions talked about how difficult it is for us experienced players to judge just what the game is like for someone new to the game or even to the genre.
    I have a harsh experience even as a long-term player, so I dread to think what it could be like for a new player.

    So I would be interested in seeing this blog it is up.

    People like that were always like that.
    Just before they had their closed little groups and so tended to interact with less of the community.
    Now they have tools to put them into a bigger audience.
    A lot more visible than they used to be.
    Unfortunately those players are the ones that make the biggest impact on new players, and doing more harm to the game community than anything else.

    It is easy to forget what it was like to be the newbie.
    It is something we really should try to think about more, since I strongly believe the poor experience for a lot of new players is why the game is simply not keeping hold of them, and therefore being a large part of the sub losses.

    I personally think that if a party votes to kick someone when they are in the really low levels it should reverse itself and kick anyone that votes Yes. Because seriously, you could not press a single ability and finish one of these dungeons. just an unlucky bad experience OP - give it another try, im sure you will get a group that says nothing to anyone and finishes flawlessly whether your stats suck or not.

    Also, worry about your stats when you start approaching level 80+ they will start to matter then.

    Not in my experiences, it's usually just the people who realize that you're basically told what to do now and have no patience for the people that choose not to read everything that pops up on their screen. Either way, if the OP knows how to take criticism constructively he could probably become a better player because of it.

    EDIT: I would like to say to the OP, welcome, don't get discouraged, and please for all that is good in this world read everything you can about Druids.

    I'm happy you pushed through it Deleze. It does take a little while to get into the swing of WOW and how you are expected to behave but it doesn't take too long (just feels like it does at the time).

    Has nothing to do with wow. A better question would be "Why are people on the Internet so nasty?". Because they want to and they can get away with it. The urge to troll, to piss off, for no other reason than having fun at the expense of another, is an integral part of human nature and it will never go away.

    Grow a thicker skin and deal with it. It may sound callous but this is what you should do.

    Closing this due to the necro.

    I realize you were bumping it up to say thank you for the former advice, OP, but people tend to respond to initial posts only and not read through the whole thread. I'm closing this to avoid any confusion since the original date was so long ago.
