World of Warcraft (WoW)

I love playing a game called World of Warcraft (WoW)

The highest you can get a character at the moment is 70, i am on my way to my third level 70 character, at times i feel so like a nerd as i have some many level 70 characters.
The first character i made is called Squg, a Dwarf Hunter, my 2nd a Gnome Mage called Tinyhaed (spelt that way on purpose), my 3rd one which is level 68 atm is a Human Paladin called Boras.

With these 3 characters i go around and kill monsters and collect things so i can get to 70.
Once your character gets to 70, you get to go into raids that can take easily 6 hours to do, by doing these raids you get better armour and equipment for your character, making you more powerful and easier to kill things, even other people

There are 2 factions in the game Alliance and Horde, in certain areas you can kill each other, often people who are level 70 will go and kill someone of a lower level for the fun of it, which as the lower level person can be really annoying.

This game of course can be pretty addictive, people spend days on end in this game, at the start im sure i was addicted to it, but now i am less so..I make sure i get things done during the day before i allow myself to get on the computer to play WoW, while your playing time seems to go past very very fast, and hour feeling like 20 minutes.

Also while playing the game you can use a voicechat program that allows you to talk to people anywhere in the world, i belong to a guild, which is a group of people you go and do raids with, my guild is mainly from Malaysia and Singapore, so it is quite fun listening to them talk and also talking to them
