B) Burning Crusade (and WoW after the expansion is applied) is no longer 56k friendly.

Can you elaborate on that? Never heard anything like that.

have you checked the recently released Burning Crusade requirements? they specifically state BROADBAND ONLY.

Holy CRAP I finally did a successful 45min Baron run last night. It was exhilarating(however you spell it). That objective truly epitomizes teamwork. Me (the tank), a priest, two mages, and a rogue totally owned it up with 15 minutes at the abom gate.

So yeah, to my despair I received a quest AFTER the 45min Baron quest. I looked on thotbott and there are THREE MORE QUESTS after this one. Man this tier .5 chain is fucking long and expensive. However, I already accomplished two of them; now I just gotta farm Ogre beads and then do some other shit.

Why bother with 0.5 gear? PVP gear and stuff you can get from instances is much better than it, for the most part.

And obviously, if you're able to raid, 0.5 is absolute garbage when it comes to tanking gear.

In my experience, .5 is better than anything that drops in instances other than DM blues for the non-raider. And even then, once you get the full set the set bonus makes it better even than that.

.5 was made for people who despise raiding, like me. I've got the time to be a hardcore raider, but I've stepped foot in MC exactly once. After 6 hours in there, I swore off 40-mans forever.

PvP gear does rock though, but it takes a LONG grind to get anything better than .5 gear - I'd say it takes less time to get .5 than it does to get any really good PvP gear (Rank 10 and up).

I just want to warn you, the Ogre bead farming takes forever. A lot of my guildies are working on their upgrade quests, and the bead farming takes days, apparently. In short, bring a friend who can DPS, especially if you're prot spec.

Does OCR have anything remotely resembling a guild? I'd roll a new character on a new server just for that privilege.

We're all too spread out to have enough people for a guild on any 1 server =\

I'd roll a new character for that. Now the only problem is coming to a group agreement of whether to roll Alliance or Horde ...

Aye, and sgree on a Central Time Zone(preferably PvP) server.

(I say Central because, server time would be right between everyone that way).

Anyone know where the US servers are located? If I ever considered getting a US WoW account it would be handy. Don't think I can handle anything more remote than the east coast.

The server I play on "Lethon" is Pacific Time, and is definitely located somewhere in that time zone. I'm not sure if all of the WoW servers are located in the same area, though. I do know that a bunch of servers went down for some time in my area (a few months back), but all the other servers were fine, so either it was only new servers or all the servers in the area went down. I'm pretty sure they have US WoW servers in each time zone for lower latency to each region, but I haven't read anything official to come to that conclusion.

If Chromaggus has 11000 people on it...why is it listed as "recommended"? I joined the server a couple weeks back, and judging from what I've seen so far, the server population is nowhere near that number.
