Practicum 4Posted: October 25, 2011
I’ve been playing World of Warcraft for quite a while now, making small strides in figuring out what happens outside of the training grounds, for I have learned all that I’ve needed to learn in from my trainer (i.e. mastering the basic moves and proving myself as ready to face the outside world through battling a seamonster in the “Proving Pit”).I’ve completed a lot of quests on the “outside,” but have only went up one level, and I assume it gets harder to reach new levels the more that you play. Initially I thought that you went up a level every time you completed a quest, but now I’ve come to the conclusion that it has to do with the “Experience” you earn from completing quests along with the “Experience” you gain elsewhere (slaying beasts). This “Experience” is measured in points and is much more important that I had originally conceived.
After completing a bunch of “solo” missions, I stumbled upon a cove with a bunch of sea monsters in it. I can only imagine that there are many valuables stashed in there, and after having attempted to enter and gotten brutally murdered, I think this is a challenge meant for multiple players. The next time I log in I’m going to try and round up my own little army and see what we can do in raiding the cove.
I’m really starting to get the hang of WoW. The controls are relatively simple and everything so far has been easy to figure out. While it took some research on my part, as I am a complete novice, most things are intuitive and clearly delineated. This, and it has been getting increasingly more difficult for me to pull myself away from it…
