    Minecraft

    Hey!

    I am not sure how many people here play Minecraft but I just got it today to try it out after watching many Yogscast videos on Youtube. So I started playing today and got myself a nicely built base on the top of a mountain with good security etc.

    My question is, since I relatively new to the game. What is there to do in game apart from building a base and surviving the night?

    Play online with friends, whether you prefer survival or "anyone can spawn/no one can die" sandbox construction modded servers - that's so much more fun than playing solo.
    PvE:er to the bone. Plays a druid. Also plays DotA and a whole bunch of other stuff. Listens to mostly everything.

    Game is awesome. Remember that it is still in Alpha right now. There are plans for some story or end-goal once beta hits. That said, its just simply fun exploring caves and different areas. Multiplayer is fun as well, though it can be buggy and a hassle depending on which server you spend time on.

    Check out the minecraft wiki, theres probably lots of stuff to check out.

    The creation / survival aspect is pretty much the big draw for the game, but of course, as you progress more and more, survival becomes somewhat a less significant factor and it is really just about creating more and more elaborate structures.

    The whole thing with minecraft, the better your imagination, the better the game is for the person playing it.

    Think of something, go nuts.

    Minecraft can be an amazing thing.

    Watch this.

    Wow... that is hard to believe someone actually made that. A lot of time, effort and patience is needed for that. It really looks fun so I just need something to build, starting to think now!

    Grab some friends and set a goal.
    (Maybe a wow themed goal ? .. would be interesting to see someone build stormwind)

    Start off here. Remember to stack up on chests, and don't leave without having your iron/diamond tools safely locked up should you die.

    Regular Dota

    Ranked Only

    Thanks for the link! Many nice things here to build to keep me busy. Then I can do these things while extending my base to a huge castle

    We should get a Server on MC and have all the WoW Players just build Stormwind or Ironforge or Orgrimmar or something.

    Minecraft is amazing. I run my guilds server and we have some pretty great stuff on there.

    Fun things to do in minecraft include trying to find pig saddles and dungeons. Dungeons will have chests in them, and you can sometimes get pig saddles. Weeee.
