10 Free Days of World of Warcraft

As regular readers know, I’ve tried several massively multi-player games, and failed every time. That is, they haven’t stuck for more than a couple months. I wrote a short piece about my disinterest in Star Wars: Galaxies (where now anybody can become a frickin’ Jedi–what’s with that?).

It’ll no doubt be fruitless, but I’m going to give World of Warcraft a try because, well, it’s free for ten days:

With over 4 million players online, World of Warcraft has made gaming history. Now you can experience the intensity of Blizzard’s “massively epic” role-playing game for 10 days – absolutely free. Just fill out the form to the right, click Submit and follow the instructions to create your World of Warcraft account.

I’ll take any introductory tips anybody has, such as “don’t take the brown acid” and so forth.

  1. It’s worth trying. Your first choice is a Player vs. Player (PvP) server or a Player vs. Environment (PvE). Actually, I think they might call the latter “normal” for now. I recommend normal if you’re just getting started.

    I started playing way back in November 2004 when it first came out, and put in some solid time that Christmas experimenting/understanding the world. It was fun, but I also started from scratch several times trying to get a feel for it. To really move forward, you have to put in solid chunks of time (like 1-2 hrs per session). If you just wander around by yourself, it can take quite some time to go anywhere.

    Advice? Get the fishing skill. If nothing else, it can be quite soothing to just sit there and fish, randomly catching fish to sell and/or cook, as well as the odd tarnished jewel or other item hiding beneath the waves.

  2. If you end up on Durotan, let me know. This game is fantastically addictive, just ask the Chinese. They’re dying from it. I’m much more conservative in my playing, however. I’ve played several of the former MMORPG’s before and this one is more fun to me. Ultima Online might have been the best until it began lagging and PvP kills became obnoxious. WoW has created an eloquent system of balance using honor and dishonor, rank systems, and general experience bracketing. There are also limitations on what a given level can do or wield. That makes for a good system in which a level 60 can’t unfairly hand over rare weapons to level 1 alternate characters. Because of an in-game auction, there’s a sort of ‘economy’ as well. One thing that really struck me in this game over others was the speed at which I was able to get into it. Within the first hour or so, I was able to bring my first character up to a level 7 with no strategic planning whatsoever. That leads to an inevitable obsession to continue driving this succession. Watch your health, and good luck!

  3. this game is awesome it is the beest game in the whole entire world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!HELL YA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    thank u much

  8. I have tried to download the WoW free trial, but just when i think that i am done, it says to shut down WoW and restart it, and it starts the WHOLE process over again! any body have any helpful tips?

  9. I have played WoW for a good year or so and I love it. But now I am at a dilema. I am not old enough to drive or get a job, and thus my account time ran out one day and now I’m bored out of my mind. If anyone is a kindhearted soul, could someone please send me an unused Time Card, please.

  10. I realy liked this game, but i can only play 10 days. And after that 10 days i trowd the game in the sea. I realy h8 it now, i am not going to pay millions of money for a ”GAME”

  11. It is just stupid of BLIZZARD, you must pay for a game around 54 euro. And for this game you must pay 29.99 for 60 days. I think its a big shame for you ”BLIZZARD”
    I am going to buy good games, and i can play then for ever. and not for 60 days or so 😦

  12. Let’s make a deal evryone !
    Evrybody that’s buys a card, tells de number ! Maybe it works on that key !
    I think Blizzard may have cards with the same key so it’s no problem
    I HOPE !

  18. Yes wow is a great game. But, you guys remind me of gold beggars in the game. Always bumming off the level 70’s. Go and get a job and buy you’re self a card. Damn!

  19. Rather sad that people are begging for game cards authorization codes. Pitiful.. Like this russian lady once said after immagrating to the US to a bum on the street begging for money!!!.. ” You speaka english right?” Bum-“yes”. Russian “Than go get a F***** job”!!! Seriously. If you are that young, tell mommy you’ll do chores for time cards learn to work for what you enjoy.

  20. yea i need a autherisation key ive played this game be fore and i have a 60 day game card but all i need is a autherisation key. cause ive brorrowed the game of a friend and now hes moved and i for got to rite the key down so i really really need 1 please if u can tell me 1 i would really like it thanks a bunch email me at overscore_12@hotmail.com from ben

  21. Plz i need a free game card 60 day plz yes i admit im a kid so my mom doesnt buy it if i dont give her the money and i have none plszzzzzz just gimme the code for one plzz!!!

  22. i was playing my ten days of warcraft and the day i got the ability to transform into a bear it ran out, it was horrible,plz any codes you have for world of warcraft send to jem91994@hotmail.com i would appreciate this very much

  23. The only way to get an authorization code is to buy WoW, and TBC, everyone who has bought wow has used their auth code, and it can’t be used again for any other account. There is not other way really other than buying the game yourself.

  24. Free 10 days trial keys :

    9RJKDN-N8N7-VPRND2-ZFG6-BW4VZ4

    XDF99G-RKG9-MVFCBW-DKNW-2MHFCW

    Enjoy 🙂

  25. i was woundering if anyone had a authentication key i bought the game and still cant upgrade my account.

  26. YOU IDIOTS DON’T ASK OTHERS TO GIVE YOU YOU DOING LIKE YOU WANT 35 EUROS FOR YOURS GO BUY IS NOT MUCH AND OTHERS WHO GIVE KEYS ARE SO IDIOTS

  27. woah, i love WoW but seriously, if your gona make us beg for codes like this, at least give us a 2month one that has all of its figures in!

    jeez, its taking too long to do this.. 5 hours to download and now this shit? i just wanna play with my bf online and you know, do all the cheesy things that are only legal on WoW.

    please just someone, if you have the morals and the love, send me a free code for more than 10 days that actually is complete and ill be forever in your debt.
    thanks x

  28. if you want to play that bad but cant afford it go to your local walmart grab the game go to random ile
    open it and take the auth code and go home dwnload the game and play if you run out do the same for the game cards
    dont be stupid and get cuaght

  29. One, if you’re going to beg here, please spell correctly and use at least the bare minimum sentence structure of English grammar.
    “Subj+Verb+(IO+)DO.”

    Two, no one is going to send you a free card. Seriously, if they have one, I wonder who they are planning to use it for.

    Three, if you’re 13 and you don’t have a job or mommy won’t buy you the game, finding someone online to send it to you probably won’t get you far when mommy sees the mail you received from someone in South Dakota. Then, when she finds out what you’ve been doing on the internet giving out your address and whatever, good luck playing computer games until you run away from your insane idea of “overly strict” parents.

    So… stop begging and just wait until you’re actually old enough to either get the money yourself or continually beg and plead with mommy that “j00 neeedz WoW” and end up living at home till past 20 from your obvious lack of skills in prioritizing.

    Not to mention the various other bad addictions you’ll probably end up having from your pathetic lifestyle.

  30. hey eeveryone…
