Practicum 3

Really not a whole lot to report. I’ve been on WoW doing a lot of experimenting, trying out my different avatars and seeing what each world has to offer(with each race of avatar there is a new world to begin in accompanied by similar, though unique quests).  I’ve decided it’s time to buckle down and actually see what’s beyond the 3rd level, so I’m going to stick with my favorite avatar, a female troll by the name of WertwaMary and see what World of Warcraft has to offer after basic training.

As of now, I am in a dinosaur-infested tropical region, interacting with the shaman trolls of my race. They are teaching me how to use my shaman powers, and I must say, it’s one of the more interesting worlds I’ve been exposed to through WoW. I’ve collected pelts from wolves and destroyed wooden targets. I’m currently trying to find a jailman to help me let loose a criminal with whom I can only assume I will be battling.

Recent discoveries include the map in the upper-right hand corner (duh…) which points you in the direction you need to go to complete tasks. It can be minimized or maximized and has been a very useful and time-saving tool in this journey. I’ve also learned that avatars can swim, which has assisted me in getting to  islands in the region.

    I have never played WOW and really never was interested in it because I really do not understand the craze. What differentiates WoW from any other video game where you pick a character and try to work through levels? I understand that you can create avatars and compete with other online participants, but does it differ from games on x-box live? I have also heard stories about how WoW can become addicting and a lot of users have neglected their children or sufferend strokes due to their intense playing patterns. After playing it for awhile and figuring out all that it has to offer, are you starting to understand the potential for its addicting nature?
