  • Anyone playing World of Warcraft?? How about an IC Guild??

    My big bro Jack gave me World of Warcraft as a Christmas gift. In case you don't know what it is, it is a giant, live web based fantasy game with more than 9,000,000 players play a variety of roles.. from human mages to elves to undead. But, what's interesting about it is that you can also be part of a guild where, together, you fight for the alliance, support each others quests and, in general, have some fun time together.

    So... I was thinking it would be interesting to have an IC group who might like to play together. Does anyone else have WOW??

    I have two alliance characters and one horde character. If you share your names... I'll share mine!!

    Jill

    PS.. Did I say that I usually hate games because I obsess about them... haven't played one in years... but this is pretty fun for an hour or two.

      Jill,
      I really laughed when I read this because my husband has been playing WoW for a long, long time. He has tried to get me into it and I'll have done is play a character for a very short time. We don't have the money to keep his account but it is a really cool game.

      Mimi,
      You can get WoW at any place that sells computer games. There is a fee to play and you can either pay monthly, every 6 months and possilby pay for a whole year at once. The more months you pay for at once the less expensive it is per month. I think it's about $15 a month if you pay month to month. It really is a very cool game and very popular.

      I have been diagnoised for 6 1/2 years now. I have taken a long break from the ICN but really miss helping out my fellow IC patients and want to get back into posting.
      1st hydro 4/07 showed no visible signs of IC but tons of mast cells in all my biopsy samples which did prove IC.
      2nd hydro 4/13/09 showed dark purple glomerulations and I had a capacity of 450 cc's. This hydro proved that my IC had progressed.
      I have tried every oral medication as well as rescue instills and DMSO.

      I have been lucky enough to see Dr Hanno, the top IC specialist in PA who has told me due to the fact that I have not responded to any "standard" treatments that I have a severe, end stage case of IC with a horrible quality of life (didn't have to tell me that last part!)

          It's a computer game Lisa. You play it online and it's huge! You pick a type of character like Jill said, human, elve, undead, what side you want to be on and you get to make your character look the way you want. You go on quests which are like missions and fight bad guys. If you're in a guild like Jill said you do these things together and help each other out. I'm sure Shane would say I'm explaining this all wrong and he would probably do it better than I would.

                Jamie, my husband is canceling his account due to money issues but I'm sure your husband would like it. It is a role playing game. It has so many options for characters and quests.

                  My Husband played that game two years. He's moved on to another one. I'm really bad at those sort of games but I am interested.

                      I've been playing World of Warcraft for about 3 years, I'm in if we start a guild.

                      It might be good if we start on a newer server with less people just because in game it will be cheaper and easier to get items you will need to lvl.

                      Some good web sites to look at are:

                      http://www.thotbott.com
                      http://www.wowhead.com/
                      http://wow.allakhazam.com/

                      and of course if you need to buy and setup an account I believe you can buy/download via the http://www.worldofwarcraft.com site.

                      Just let me know which server you would like to start the guild on and I'll create an alt

                        I'm on the Blackwater Raiders server and have three accounts. I have no idea how to set up a guild... if you could do it.. that would be AWESOME!! How about a name like "IC Angels" or "Got IC?" or ??? Anyone have any ideas for something funnier yet also fierce. I love the names of some of the guilds... very strong!

                        Heroines of IC?
                        Heroes of IC?
                        ICN Guild?

                        It would be fun if we started new characters and tried to meet once a week to do some quests together.

                        Also, do you prefer horde or alliance??? I'm having alot of fun with the horde characters... as the alliance quests at the beginning seemed a little more boring. But, I"m game for either!

                          :woohoo:I honestly think horde is more fun, just because there are more mature people on that site. Alliance tends to attract younger people, who tend to be less mature.

                          I would be happy to help setup the guild.To start a guild we need 10 members to sign up before its officially a guild. It would also be a good idea to create a set of rules because guild chats can get out of hand pretty quickly.

                          So! IC Angels, Got IC? .... Intelligent Cupcakes , IC Mafia(lol)

                          Brain storming is fun!

                            So anyone playing wow?? I just discovered it because kids have been bugging me to play, and I have to confess I'm hooked! I've NEVER played any online games before and this is just the neatest thing! I play with my husband, kids and a couple friends and that makes it so much fun. Just playing it alone wouldn't be the same for me!
