Many thanks for your replies. Sorry about putting the thread in the wrong place, dunno how that happened.
I looked at the existing guild names as suggested by Deadard and the first I saw was Batfink. Nice one!
I named my mage Plugin, but in hindsight I guess that is a pretty major RP breaker and risky to use?
Explain why your name is RP:
My character is a Bat and he is a fink and … OK fair enough
My character is a plugin… err yea a plugin is a medieval type of err… crap!
I had a longer look at all the class spells and talents today at work (yes at work). Seems like they have stripped out all the interesting spells from the low levels. I’m mainly looking at Mage, but it seems a similar story on the other classes too. Low levels are massively simplified and the fun doesn’t seem to start until lv50. Or should I replace the word fun with complexity? Is that about the gist of things now?
On the other hand I noticed professions now giving interesting rewards, like the healing spell for herbalists. I would still prefer to have my low level blizzard spell
What really sucked about SWC was going to the Auction House (AH) and finding I couldn’t buy any bags. GRRRRR!!
I guess this could be solved in a guild as a I could beg until a tailor made some, but I took that as an indicator that the economy is almost non existent. What if I wanted to sell my own stuff in the AH, do lowbies have any chance of making a living from ore/cloth/leather?
The first time I quit wow was because of the changes to the Paly talent tree (pre WOTLK). I was mad because I had chosen to level up a Paly to create a specific build which I enjoyed immensely and then suddenly wasn’t possible anymore. I can only conclude that Blizzard is repeating this cycle deliberately to force people to switch classes and keep playing the subscription longer.
I will try to sort out what class and name I want to use and then make an application. Thanks for your time and patience whilst I try to adjust my brain to the new WOW climate.
Blizzard at lv52? WHYYYYYY…..
Sorry about that
