I also have a brain tumor and had to learn to game one-handed a few years ago. Mine is stable now but I still suffer from bi-lateral weakness and other medical issues that cause me to revert to one-handed playing. I just wanted to pass on a little info because I was able to learn to play WoW and other games 100% using only one hand.

For a mouse you can use a left handed Naga:

You can arrange it however you like but as an example, I have auto-run toggle (cruise control on and off basically) bound to tilting the mouse wheel right. I assigned riding my mount to tilting the wheel left. Then all my characters abilities and the menus I need most frequently are assigned to the buttons on the side of the mouse. You can also assign a shift key, meaning you have two different sets of buttons on the mouse that you can toggle between. That gives you 20+ buttons from just your one hand.

I rolled a Shaman and I was able to play healer (restoration) and melee damage (enhancement) specs easily with one hand. There are a few other classes with even less commands that would work for this just fine as well. Death Knights (Frost at least) and Hunters come to mind.

So the mouse, the Razor software that came with it, and the key assignment menu in WoW was all I needed to play completely fine with one hand. I even got compliments on my performance from time to time without anyone even knowing I had a handicap.

If you want even more ways to input commands then there are other devices out there. One that I know is used frequently (even by people without disabilities) is the Stinkyboard foot controller. I have no experience with it but in my time on forums with other handicapped gamers I heard nothing but good things about it:

If you have any questions about my one-handed gaming journey or just want to talk about brain tumor stuff then feel free to PM me anytime.


I just came out of another serious health issue in the past week so this is still fresh in my mind. Just to add onto what I said above, WoW is like the perfect game for people that have issues inputting commands quickly or accurately. I find myself recommending it to SO many people I meet while at the doctor's office, infusion centers, rehabs, etc.

Of course you can play the parts of the game that everyone else does like questing, completing dungeons, and raiding. And there's pet battling like you mentioned. But you can also become the freakin profession master. When I was at my worst health-wise I would get on WoW and level professions for hours on end and forget all about my tumor. The good thing about professions is that you can do it entirely at your own pace. Feel bad all of the sudden? Just stop playing and log out. Or start a batch of potions crafting and take a rest. As a bonus you become a very valuable asset to any guild. And on top of that you can make a fortune off your profession by using the auction house. I'm still WoW-rich from those years of playing while I was recovering from chemo and whatnot. (shoutout to r/woweconomy ). One thing you'll learn is that if it can be auctioned then there is someone out there that needs it. Once you realize that it gives you a nice sense of purpose to know that you're actually helping a real person.

That's not even the best part though. The most important thing about making auctions was that I always had something to look forward to the next morning. I'm sure you know that sometimes it's hard to even get out of bed but you'll feel way more inclined to take that first step each day if you know there's some gold waiting in your mailbox.

There's even more to do beyond professions (like your Garrison and now Class Order Hall) but I'll stop here. Just know that WoW can be a valuable tool to help you cope and recover. Even at my worst times health-wise I was able to truly enjoy myself in WoW and other games. I was able to get some relief that I couldn't get anywhere else and part of me actually thinks I owe my life to them.

u/Glumbot_2 · 2 pointsr/wow

Hey welcome to the game, I hope you enjoy it :D Everyone when they first start playing the game is in the same boat as you, whether it's a 14 year veteran or a 14 week player. Personally, I have been playing a bit over 5 years myself, and I remember being so incredibly lost when I first started, so don't feel discouraged or anything like that. You'll get the hang of it pretty quickly:. I am going to try and make my responses to your questions a bit more detailed and concise, as that helped me a lot in the beginning, so apologies if this is long:

> Auto attacks. Do I have to keep pressing 1 to autoattack? Is there a way to make my warrior auto the enemy minion automatically, when I fight with it, without having to spam 1?

Nope you don't and should not press anything for auto attack, meaning remove the icon from your action bar (the bar at the bottom of your screen with all your abilities). The reason you don't press anything is because when you enter combat, you always use one of your abilities first. So when you first see an enemy, press an ability, when you're abilities are on CD (cool down, meaning if you press them nothing will happen) your character will auto attack. So the only time auto attacking will occur is if you're not pressing abilities, or your abilities are on CD, it's not something you need to think or worry about, it just happens.

> Dual Wielding. Does having two blades double your chances of hitting auto attacks or the dmg of your auto attacks or something like that? Or does it still remain the same?

I am not 100% sure on if it actually increases damage from using one weapon for auto attacking, I main a warlock and have never played a warrior. Apologies if I'm wrong, but to the best of my knowledge it just increases your attack speed. However this should not have any bearing on whether you decide to play fury, it's not something you need to think about ever. Fury dual wields because it's the fantasy of the class, so if that looks visually cool and fun to you try it out, do not worry about what spec does more damage unless you plan on going into high end raiding.

> Isnt a greatsword supposed to be a two handed weapon? Why can I dual wield it with a short sword when I have the fury specialization? Shouldnt I be allowed to just dual wield 2 short swords or a sword and a shield?

You can dual wield great swords because it's the fantasy of the class, do not worry about what type of sword. While leveling and gearing up, just equip the sword with a higher item level and better stats (all of this shows when you hover your mouse over the item). The size of the sword has no bearing, and you can not equip a shield as a fury warrior, it's not part of the spec, as the abilities and mechanics are built around two swords. If you want to use a sword and shield, you could switch to protection, which is the tanking warrior spec.

> A greatsword+short sword is more powerful than double short swords, so why do I see high lvl characters with double short swords? Doesnt that reduce their dps?

This has nothing to do with the size, it just happens that those swords have better stats than other ones. Also chances are if you're seeing a high level character, they're gear is transmogged and that's not actually what their swords look like. Transmogging is when you can pay gold, and change the appearance of your weapons and armor to look like other weapons and armor, once you it max level you'll probably spend a lot of time doing this.

> Professions. Should I pay attention to them now? What professions would u recommend to a warrior?

I wouldn't say you should necessarily pay attention to them, especially while leveling, honestly unless you plan on joining a raiding guild or doing high end content, professions are nothing more than a way to make gold. So since you're new to the game, and leveling I wouldn't recommend going out of your way for it, you'll make enough gold through questing, dungeons and random battle grounds. I personally always pick mining and herbalism for all my characters. If you see rocks or plants and you have these, you just go over and right click to gather it, if you want you can sell it on the auction house. It's great while leveling because it's not something you go out of your way for, if you're questing or exploring and happen to walk past stuff, just go over a right click. It's very laid back profession, that requires no effort or thought.

Sorry for typing so much, I wanted to be as thorough as I could, because I know how daunting the game seems from your position. You'll honestly get the hang of everything in a month, but even as a 5+ year player, I still find myself figuring new things out haha If you are still playing the game in a few weeks or months and like it, I highly recommend looking into an MMO gaming mouse, such as the Logitech G600 (which is the one I use) or the Razer Naga. Mice like these have buttons on the side you press with your thumb. It is honestly a game changer, and makes playing WOW so much easier. Best of luck and just enjoy the game man, don't worry about damage or stuff like that, do what looks fun and cool to you. If you have any other questions feel free to ask :D

u/lololoz · 1 pointr/wow

It's all a bit trial and error really.


The most basic's I'd say to start off with would be to rebind Q E R F (use WASD to move and pan the camera around with your mouse, though some will say to rebind S as well but if you're new to keybinds I'd personally say keep S as a move backwards key, AKA PVP'ers shame button :P ).


Q and E I've personally found are best for the button's you are going to press the most - like filler spells without cooldowns/with procs ie. Frostbolt and Ice Shards (iirc, haven't played a Mage in a while).


Spells like DOT's and/or cooldowns are good for 1-5 because they are a little further away but still easily reachable, and you won't need to press them constantly- if you're anything like me your hands linger around the WASD area by default.


R and F are good keys for situational/utility spells (like an interrupt for example - something that isn't part of a regular rotation, but is still easily accesable when you need it).


As something that is trivial but helpful is to bind your mount button to something like CTRL+Space. It's small but is one of those stupid things that when you get used to it it just makes sense.


Then as you become more comfortable you can add more keybindings (like Z X C V) and using modifiers like SHIFT and CTRL (like SHIFT+Q, SHIFT+E), but to get you going I'd say this is a good starting point. The best thing I'd say would be to practice on a training dummy and change around the keybindings as you prefer until your rotation feels comfortable and you build muscle memory.


If you are new to the game and need a hand getting the rotation down, or even leveling a new class the addon TellMeWhen and u/Chesderman keep profiles updated to import at that tell you the rotation (it's not 100% all you'll ever need, but it does help a great deal).


As other people have mentioned, a multi-button mouse can make the process easier, but it's still a learning process all the same. I personally haven't used one with more than 2 extra buttons, but someone did suggest [this mouse](
=lv_ov_lig_dp_it) on /r/pcmasterrace as a good entry point without breaking the bank.


Is there anything obvious I've missed fellow keybinders? I haven't really typed up a begginer guide to keybinding before.

u/George_Lindgren · 2 pointsr/wow

Hey man,

If you're truly interested in Warcraft lore, I HIGHLY recommend that you look into reading the Warcraft books. It really is the greatest story I've ever had the pleasure to hear. These books are absolutely incredible man, thinking of it now gives me goosebumps. I'll give you a link to two books to start out with. I have no fucking clue why this is so expensive, I suggest looking around to get a better price. I got mine for like 20 USD a few years ago. This book is SO AMAZING, BY THE LIGHT! If your going to get any book, get this. This is the first one you want to read because they all go in order which helps you gain a deep understanding for the chain of events.

After Chronicles of War, this is the book you want to read. Super, super interesting stuff in this one. Please man, do yourself a favor and get these two books. I promise you, you will be so hooked into WoW after you read these haha.

u/saintsnnr · 1 pointr/wow

My philosophy is, if it's free you might as well try it. The trial will let you play to level 20, with some community restrictions (no joining guilds, group finders, etc.) but you can see how the different classes play, how questing works, and a general impression of what the world is like.

If you decide you enjoy the game enough to make the purchase, check out this link

for WoW. That link has shows a discount on the amazon site. If you buy the newest expansion, all previous expansions are included. It will come with a level boost, which I strongly recommend you save for the moment and continue playing your character that you've picked to be your main until you get to at least close to level cap. You'll see reasons for that throughout the subreddit, but what it basically comes down to is you don't want to be overwhelmed by the amount of information you get at max level without having played through the content to begin with.

TL;DR: get the trial, have fun with it. If you buy it, buy cheap. Save your boost.

u/Cloudslinger · 4 pointsr/wow

I think it really comes down to personal preference. Once you've build up that dexterity with your left hand, switching to using your right thumb doesn't magically make things easier. I'd rather use the word helpful, if that makes sense.

With that said, I've seen people use MMO mice in a few different ways.

1 - They use the 12 extra buttons for long cooldowns and rarely used spells. They keep the main "rotational" buttons on the keyboard by the left hand.

2 - They use the 12 extra buttons for all of their most used abilities and put cooldowns by the left hand.

(of course these aren't the only ways, just the ones I've noticed)

I'm the latter. I use my mouse for my most used abilities and put cooldowns on the keyboard. (in all games, not just wow) I prefer this because it feel like I'm able to move better since my left hand is kinda dedicated to movement. Do I actually move better? Probably not but it makes sense to me. & I can't play without one now.

All in all I think mmo Mice are SUPER helpful, but not necessary.

Here are the 3 main Mice - They all have decent reviews.
(I prefer Razer but thats mostly because ALL of my peripherals are Razer, so 1 config software :D. AND I feel like Razers buttons are positioned a little higher which fits my hand better. Corsair and Logitech can usually be found cheaper.)

Laptops don't necessarily suck at gaming, but you'll get a whole lot more value for your money buying a desktop. The differences between a $800 Laptop and a $800 desktop are quite big. Of course the laptops bring with them the convenience of being portable, which for you, being military and all, is much more valuable than the extra performance.

For gaming laptops you just need a laptop with a decent dedicated graphics card. An SSD harddrive is also recommended.

The best one on the market currently under $800 is arguably the Dell Inspiron:

Good craphics card, decent processor. Only 256GB harddrive space but its an SSD so its plenty fast. Just keep your movies, tv shows, and porn on an external harddrive and you'll be fine.

You don't need a beast PC to run WoW though, you might du just as well with a laptop in the $600-$700 range.

Hope this helps!

u/RealSciFiMan · 3 pointsr/wow

Thanks for the detailed reply, I’ll shoot you over some laptops.

I know you said more than 8-12 ram is unnecessary but I think the price looked good for the value. What do you think? Also, this does not have a 144hz screen. Not that it is needed, but perhaps preferred.

The thing is, I’m afraid the gpu won’t be enough to display at 144 FPS to get the use out of the 144hz screen.

This model has a 1050

And this model has a 1060

I noticed that most laptops don’t advertise a 1070 card. Most are 1060 6gb and lower which I think would be good for 1920x1080 60hz refresh rate high settings, but I didn’t want to cross out the 144hz monitor on the overpowered Walmart brand laptops until i was sure that you wouldn’t be able to get anything out of it because a 1050 or 1060 may not produce the frames needed to get most out of the 144 hz screen if that makes sense.

So all in all, it doesn’t need to be 144hz but I want to explore that avenue. Ideally it would have all of the qualities you’d want in a laptop. Light enough to be comfortable laying on a couch, not necessarily needed to put the laptop on a desk. (I’ve owned a 20 pound laptop, only used it on a desk, not fun lesson learned haha)

I’m sure whatever laptop I get will be significantly better than the 18 FPS ultra low quality I’m playing at now. Shoot me over your thoughts if you can! Thank you for your time and help!

If you mean how hard is the physical pressing action, it does not take much pressure. The buttons are small. I'd say it's about the same amount of pressure to push one as it does a normal key on a keyboard.

If you mean how easy is it to reach all of them? All 12 buttons are concentrated in a rectangle that measures probably 1"x2". For me, reaching buttons 1-9 is pretty easy without even having to shift my thumb at all. Buttons 10-12 took some getting used to but now it's second nature.

The biggest hurdle is just adjusting your muscle memory to using the mouse buttons for the majority of your actions. It took several play sessions to get used to it. To be honest, I felt like I was pretty worthless at first because I'd get lost in the heat of battle trying to remember what key I needed to hit. Lost several GCD's every now and then and also casted the wrong spell plenty of times. After a few sessions, it all pretty much clicked though and now it's second nature.

Don't switch to this style and expect an immediate improvement. You will get worse before you get better. Just like if you totally change up your keybinds, your body has to adjust.

Here is the mouse I bought. It's pretty cheap, so hopefully if you think it will help you, the investment is minimal. They make higher dollar ones that are probably better, so you can check those out too if you don't like this one.

They call them MMO gaming mice. If you want to search for that on amazon

u/Cybeles · 1 pointr/wow

The Art of World of Warcraft is a good pick as it shows drawings of various expansions.

Specific to Blood Elves would be the Art of WoW: Burning Crusade but it came from the Collector Edition of Burning Crusade so it could be a bit hard to find (and you definitely won't find it in a store.)

Also, if she likes drawing/coloring, there's a Coloring Book too. :)

If she likes the lore/story of the game at all and likes to read too, I would suggest the World of Warcraft: Chronicle books:

  • Volume 1
  • Volume 2
  • Volume 3

    They are basically history books about the game's world from the creation of the universe up to the first few expansions of World of Warcraft.
u/Max_Splooge · 3 pointsr/wow

I got this one about two weeks ago and it runs wow great. I have the graphics settings set on seven with anti-aliasing and texture filtering turned down and get a solid 60 fps. Overwatch runs great on it too.

Edit: and from what I understand, Wow is more processor dependant than most games so the other laptop linked in this thread may run Wow better but since this laptop has a 1050ti, this laptop should run most other games better. So your choice really but both should run great

u/Luxorgg · 0 pointsr/wow

this homepage seems kinda limited

this one is very nice. that will run wow and anything else you could want for a long time. i have a similar laptop with the same processor and gpu. im european its kinda hard for me to find us offers :)

if you dont want to get this one for whatever reason just look for a

1060 6gb vram,

you definitly want a ssd(preferably m2)

you definitly DONT want those ssd+hdd combinations because your harddrive will constantly go into sleepmode as its not being used and then it will restart and this leads to micro-stuttering

you want 16gb ram(8 is ok-ish but 16 is where youll be able to run wow and side applications and all the good stuff together without it interfering with one another)

a i5 cpu is fine, but ideally youd want a i7 7700hq

Depends on how deep you’re wanting really. A really light uploader to check on YouTube would be The WoW Tea Party ( Really concise videos that are easily digestible with humor.

I realize you asked for videos, but if you’re not opposed to reading I can’t recommend the Cronicle books enough. They cover the material much like an encyclopedia, hitting the facts in an very easy to follow method. Kindle versions are nice because you can just search for the topics/people you want to find. Here’s the first one.

u/m3ga_p1xel · 1 pointr/wow

Sadly, I'm not EU, but I just started playing this week with the free trial. I finally decided that I would surpass the level 20 restriction and ordered the WOW Battlechest and the Warlords of Draenor expansion today. I plan on playing a Horde character, probably a rouge blood elf since I like the blood elf lore. If you were on the US servers, I would've been down to play sometime :(

Happy gaming and the best to both of us newbie!

u/Duranna144 · 1 pointr/wow

This post has the order of the stories:

It's long, as it includes comics, short stories, etc.

Book wise, if you're looking at WoW specific lore, there's a few that are what I consider the essentials. I recommend you start with picking up Rise of the Horde, it gives a great background on how the Original Horde came to be. Then get the Warcraft Archive it has four books that all relate events to after WC3/before WoW. After that, get The War of the Ancient. At that point, you've read all the essentials of the pre-WoW/current WoW material. All the books past there can really be connected to specific events in the game (in which case, see the list on the thread I linked earlier.

u/TrustmeIknowaguy · 1 pointr/wow

Use a left handed Naga. I main havoc and I use a right handed logitech G600 (lot more buttons but I don't use like a third of em). I don't have any issues with my hands but looking at my mouse and keybinds you could pretty much get every important ability on the mouse. If you can press shift with your bad hand, or bind shift to the mouse wheel or something you could double the amount of abilities on buttons and not need a single macro.
Edit: You'd also probably have to bind jump to a button so binding the mouse wheel to shift would be the best option in this set up freeing up your thumb to access to potentially 24ish commands depending on what you do with jumping or other things I'm not thinking of.

u/Pomegranate_Seed · 4 pointsr/wow

A nice thing may be Warcraft chronicles 1. It's an art-book with the backstory of the game that was released a few months ago. It tells of the beginning of the world, how it was made and fought over (long before the alliance and horde came into the picture).

It was very well received by the fans, partially because it has some really pretty art in it and partially because it clarified a lot of the backstory that used to be very vague.

Another thing that may be nice are the mounts & pets in the battle net shop. They're cosmetic rewards that your bf will get in-game. The mounts are the most used ones, they're the big beasts that you ride/fly around the world with. The pets are used for pokemon-battles. Not everyone plays with the pets, but still a fair number of people like them.

There's an option in the battle net store to gift those mounts and pets, so your bf will recieve them in-game. I don't know if you need a battle net account to gift them though, never done that.

If you're considering the mounts/pets, you'd probably want to know which ones your bf already has. If you want to check that without him knowing, you can check his armory. It has a tab with 'pets & mounts', where you can search through all the things he has collected, and which ones he's missing. (This is just an example armory I pulled up, you would have to search for your bf's character name, realm and eu-us-asia-region to find his armory.)

There's probably some more things out there, but these are the first 2 things I can think of. Happy hunting! :)

u/Overrwatcher · 0 pointsr/wow

Get one of those thumb grid mice, like the Razer Naga (which i use) or the Logitech G600. Ignore the anti-Razer hate train, most of their products aren't that great, but their mice are always top-notch.

Got one? Good, it is so much easier using those than binding your whole keyboard. If you haven't already, use Dominos or Bartender. Where and how you place the bars is entirely up to you, and what you feel comfortable with.

For reference, this is how my keybindings look.

Now, the keybind fun starts. Put your main spells, preferably damage ones if you're dps or heal ones if you're a healer, from 1 to =, but you don't have to go that far (i go from 1-0). Bind everything else 1-= using Shift, Alt, and Ctrl modifiers, the way you do it is up to you. I personally use 1-0 for damage and mobility, shift modifier for utility, and alt modifier for self-defense or situational spells. The closer to 1 you put your ability, the more you remember it. You can also use extra non-number keybindings if you like, including Q, E, F, G, whatever floats your boat.

Oh, and remember that not everything needs to have a keybind.

Good luck!

u/Thirteenera · 8 pointsr/wow

The timelines are a bit of a mess, keep that in mind.

Basically it goes like this

[Vanilla Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms 1-60] - original wow, no "big story", just lots of small stories and world building in general. Unfortunately you will NOT see this anymore, apart from a few remaining untouched dungeons/raids. (see cataclysm)

Then demons invade through Blasted Lands portal and next expansion begins:

[Burning Crusade 60-70] - all outlands. It stayed untouched, so you can see it as it was. Overall story is stopping demons, but there's usually a per-zone story that focuses on something. A few max-level quests are cool (like Ogri'La faction, the Netherwing, etc). if you're a horde, recommend doing ALL nagrand quests. Note that Blood Elves and Draenei starting areas are considered part of TBC for purposes of timeline.

When we finally kill all big baddies, a big threat emerges in the north, and xpac begins:

[Wrath of the Lich King 70-80] - we go to Northrend. Almost everything is also untouched. There are a couple "big stories" (stopping LK, and weird stuff with old gods / titan keepers), and a lot of zone-wide stories. DK starting area takes place in this timeline.

When we finally stop LK, suddenly our original world got REALLY fucked up by Deathwing coming out. Cataclysm's area is all of the Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms remade to what they are now - so all "original vanilla" content is gone and replaced by Cataclysm version. This is why its weird for people, because they start levelling in Cataclysm areas, then move on to TBC areas (which are in the "past"), and stuff makes no sense. Cataclysm is also when Worgen and Goblin starting areas happen. Cataclysm both revamped the older low level zones (1-60) and also added new high level zones (80-85).

After that comes Pandaria (pandarian continent 85-90), then Draenor (draenor continent 90-100), then Legion (legion continent 100-110). To help you with the timeline, keep the below in mind:

If you start as a dwarf, gnome, human, Night Elf, Orc, Troll, Tauren, Undead, Goblin or Worgen, then your starting zone will be in Cataclysm (If we say original was Time 1, and legion is now time 7, then you start in Time 4).You will then continue levelling in same Time 4, before heading off to TBC (time 2), then WOTLK (time 3), returning back to Cataclysm (time 4), and then its pretty simple after that.

If you start as Blood Elf or Draenei, then you start in TBC (Time 2), after your starting zone you will jump forward to Cata (time 4), then at 60 you will return back to Time 2, and then time 3 -> time 4 -> onwards. Basically, your starting area is same "time" as you visit at levels 60-70, but your 15-60 zone is the time two expansions AFTER your starting zone. Its fucked, yes.

If you start as a panda, you're even more screwed. You start as MOP (time 5), before levelling in Cata/tbc/wotlk/cata, so your overall timeline will be 5-4-3-2-4-5-6-7.

If you pick a Death Knight class, you will always start as WOTLK time, BUT you also skip the 1-60 levelling. So you will basically be 3-2-3-4-5-6-7.

If you pick a Demon Hunter class, you will always start as Legion time, but also skip the 1-100 levelling. so you will be basically 6.5-7.

Yes, this is confusing. yes, its annoying. You will figure it out.

That said, if you're interested in lore, i REALLY REALLY REALLY recommend the 2 Warcraft Chronicle books -

They are fantastic, and cover time from [Beginning of time] -> [Beginning of Warcraft 3]. Third part is scheduled to be released soon(ish).

I also recommend either playing or watching Warcraft 3 and Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne. They set up the events of WoW the mmo, and give a lot of important (and cool) lore.

If you search around for wow books, you can also find plenty of lists made to help new players start reading the lore.

Depending on which country you're in, you get the WoW Battle Chest at participating theatres. Amazon has the digital code for $5 currently, it has all expansions included, save for the upcoming Legion expansion. You get your first 30 days of game time free with the game. Hope that helps and welcome to Azeroth!

u/Jediknightluke · 14 pointsr/wow

A MMO mouse will completely change the game for you. Back before my wife and I were married I would visit her on the weekends, and one weekend I left my naga over there and didn't play WoW for the whole week. You just get so accustomed to it.
Nagas are normally really expensive, but there are really good alternatives. This mouse is around 30 bucks on Amazon and has 5 stars.

I need to get me a gaming keyboard, I have never had one before so idk how well those would benefit me. I'm just using an old PS2 keyboard now.

edit- Been here almost 4 years and just got my first gold. Thank you so much! I love this community :)

u/Skylerys · 2 pointsr/wow

I have the same issue with hand and arm pain. Few weeks ago I got this mouse and it is awesome. Really great build quality and price. I snagged it for $25 on sale. My friend also has it and loves it.

u/Billy_the_Burglar · 1 pointr/wow

If you really like cooking.. well, there's always the Warcraft cookbook:

(I hope the link works.)

I'm honestly not certain all of what's inside, but there could be something fun to make for him!
There may be some food connected to an area he loves in game, or his main character's race, or something along those lines.

u/Tohms64 · 1 pointr/wow

There's two mice by steelseries, the one op linked and this one :

Great find op, and at a great price ! have fun with it :)

u/Jackpkmn · 1 pointr/wow

Depends on the price you're looking at. This is 2011-2012 computer, likely heavily used, and was only mid range back then. This computer probably would have run Cataclysm pretty well. But i highly recommend not paying more than a couple hundred on this old computer. Once you start getting into the 500+ range you should save up for something nicer like this Acer Nitro 5.

u/Coathanger_Cure · 1 pointr/wow

I got a Razer Naga and have some big mitts as well so I took it back to best buy and traded it in for the Logitch G600. It' exactly like the naga except large, now my man hands are happy :)

u/Ventem · 2 pointsr/wow

I bought a Naga and I hated it. It felt so cheap in my hand and the buttons felt "squishy". It was also a bit on the small side for my hand. So, I gave it to a friend and he loves it, so to each his own!
I ended up biting the bullet and went with a mouse that I've never heard of before, the Venus by a newish(?) company called "UtechSmart". In my opinion, it's miles above the Naga. It feels so much better in my hand, the build quality is superb, and there's no issues after a couple years of use.

If you don't want to go with a mouse that isn't a huge name brand like Razer, then I hear Corsair's mice are incredible too. I use their keyboards and I love them, but I haven't used one of their mice yet. Hopefully this can help to some degree.

u/RedKhus · 5 pointsr/wow

Another good option would be the Logitech G600 MMO mouse:

It's somewhat between the cost of a Naga and the Redragon noted above. I've had a couple Nagas that eventually start to get kind of loose buttons and a squeaky wheel so the G600 will be my next one. I have had very good experience with other Logitech gear quality.

But I cannot possibly stress enough the awesomeness and positive gameplay impact of an MMO mouse like these. It will completely change your play, massively for the better. Just keep in mind--it will feel WEIRD until you're used to it. Don't give up! :) Train your thumb to feel your spells on the number pad and eventually you'll become one with your input device, a moment of mouse Zen, and it's tons of fun.

u/Renixian · 2 pointsr/wow

WoW Chronicles are good if you enjoy reading, Nobbel87 like linked above is good for video/audio.

u/Xunae · 1 pointr/wow

this is where i'd start. They're more dated than some things (predating WoW), but they're very good stories that capture of a lot of the events that built up to the world we have today. Of blood and honor and The Last guardian are particularly good.

u/MrRado · 3 pointsr/wow

If you're not wanting a full keypad - Logitech Proteus - $50 US

If you do like full keypads - Logitech G600 - $53 US

Logitech does pretty good with their mice. While I like the Razer Naga better in use, the G600 is more durable in my experience.

That said, there's plenty of less known brands for cheaper prices that still have decent ratings such as the UtechSmart Venus - $39 US

u/phedre · 9 pointsr/wow

Hopefully this isn't a rude question - do you have a fully functioning left hand? If so, you could try something like a razor naga mouse for left handed people, which has a dozen buttons on the side, plus the standard left/right/scroll, and two buttons above the scroll wheel. Use those to map instead of the typical keybindings. Use shift+1 instead of shift+c for example. It's what I use, and while it does take some getting used to, it's AMAZING once you know how to use it.

u/coin_return · 2 pointsr/wow

If you're into books, check out:

Great book, they're making a series out of it eventually. Basically goes over a lot of early lore and big names. Good place to start, and then you'll get to nerd out in some places you see in-game that pertain to it (particularly Storm Peaks and Northrend in general, lots of Old God and Titan stuff out there).

Also, check out this addon:

It recommends the most lore-heavy way through leveling, and even feeds you additional lore based on your area/quests. The Wowpedia is also a good place to go when you're like "who is that character?" at random.

u/malruth · 2 pointsr/wow

> he also talks about some WOW book that is nice that came out he wants to read that's basically the story of WOW and more into detail of the story line

That is probably World of Warcraft: Chronicle Volume 1 and Volume 2.

u/Amiron · 8 pointsr/wow

Technically, the "Illidan" book goes into pretty great detail about our powers, and goddamn are they potent. Every sense is heightened, in addition to being able to "see" just as well as before, and then some. The illidari can actually see the weaves and layers of magic if they focus their spectral sight.

I was super cautious when they introduced the demon hunter class back then, but after reading this book, I've really grown to love the concept. They're basically hardcore witchers.

u/ripper522 · 1 pointr/wow

I've been burned by Hp products and customer service in the past so I tend to avoid but thanks for the heads up. Had a bunch of Amazon credit built up so went with thanks for everyones input though

u/egosumFidius · 1 pointr/wow

would highly recommend the Warcraft Archive which includes all of the original novels that were published before WoW and I feel are superior to anything that came out after. The Archive includes Day of the Dragon, Lord of the Clans, The Last Guardian, and Of Blood and Honor.

u/MayOverexplain · 2 pointsr/wow

I use this version of the Nitro 5 and it’s been working beautifully. I don’t raid really so I can’t give you specifics there, but everywhere else has been butter smooth. Also, one of the few in the price range with HDD expansion slot which is nice because WoW takes up some room.

u/Sahaul · 2 pointsr/wow

I've used the exact same setup for years now and love it. Left CTRL is push to talk, so shift/alt are my modifiers of choice.

I had one of the original Razer Naga Epics, and I loved it but it had its share of issues. I repaired the switches numerous times until I finally cooked the little PCB inside it while attempting to re-solder in a new switch. I tried out both the new Razer Naga Chroma and the Logitech G600, but the side buttons were ridiculously easy to press by accident (at least compared to my original Naga). I ended up buying a Redragon M901 and absolutely adore the thing. It's cheap as hell and the build quality seems better than the Razer one. It's lasted me three years so far. I use the extra button on the top for the "extra action button" that periodically pops up in game for quests/events/raids.

u/Figueira420 · 3 pointsr/wow

I'm new to Wow. I've been playing the free version and I'm planning to buy 1 month of subscription. The thing is, I'm would like to buy this physical version of the game, because I also want the begginer guide books. My question is, does this physical version come with a key to use on, or is it just a dvd with an install iso. I need to know this because I'm using linux on my pc, and if it comes with a installation dvd, there could be compatibility problems. Thanks in advence

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/wow

I love the [Logitech G13](">Logitech G13 Programmable Gameboard with LCD Display</a><img src=" for WoW. I even have my buttons arranged like they are on the G13. One set on each side. Left side, then hold one of the thumb keys + a button and bam, set two.

u/Snichy · 0 pointsr/wow

The Razers and Logitechs are all fine and good, but for those without that kind of money try the UTECH SMART VENUS - a cheap MMO mouse without the compromise in quality. ive been using it for years without issue and feels as good as a Razer without the high price tag (my last Naga lasted a year until breaking).

u/necros1215 · 3 pointsr/wow

This book is awesome. Ever since seeing the movie, I've really been into more of the lore side even more so than usual and this first volume really helps to flesh out the creation of the Warcraft universe pre Warcraft 1. I highly recommend it, especially with Volume 2 coming out next March.

u/Vejret · 3 pointsr/wow

Honestly, whilst Nobbels videos are the best way to go in depth on a specific subject, you might find it hard to understand the world and overarching storyline still.

Blizzard are releasing books that compile the lore together, This is chapter one: Amazon

I'm looking forward to chapter 3 coming in a month.
These are a fantastic source for beginners with lore, they keep it all in order and don't overwelm you. Then if you want to know more in depth, go to Nobbel.

u/movzx · 1 pointr/wow

You can try this. It will let you move everything to your left hand and give you a way to toggle between 3 different key sets. Then you would only be using your mouse for click to interact stuff.

As far as class? Any ranged DPS would work fine. Minimal movement most of the time. A healer would work as well. You can just make macros for "Heal party member 3", "heal party member 4", etc and not even use a mouse to hover over names.

edit: Didn't see that Amazon didn't have the game pad. That Logitech one looked niftier anyway.

u/histar1 · 1 pointr/wow

Pretty sure the Titans imprison Sarg, with Illidan there as a jailer just to be a speed bump in case he gets out.

Also, if you really want to get into the lore, Illidan was beaten by Arthas when he was fully empowered by the Lich King specifically to beat Illidan. They originally tied when they fought 1v1 right after Illidan broke free. Since being beaten, Illidan has pretty much been consuming demon essence nonstop to get strong enough to face the leaders of the Burning Legion. There's a great book called Illidan that explains a lot around his story.

u/Hakooh- · 1 pointr/wow

I had a Naga for about a year before the left click went out on me. I went a cheap route and bought this chinese mouse from Amazon called a UTech Smart... It has the 12 buttons on the side and a few others, I actually like it alot! Been using it for about 8 or 9 months and it's still working great, was only $35 dollars. Edit: Looks like it's closer to $40. It's a UTechSmart Venus

u/ItCanAlwaysGetWorse · 8 pointsr/wow

just to give you an idea or some inspiration, this is my setup:

I play Beast Master, a ranged DD
W - forward
S - backward
A - strafe left (not turn)
D - strafe right (not turn)
note: I dont have keybindings for turning around, I use the mouse for that by holding right mouse button

1 - one of the main abilities I use all the time
2 - main ability for AoE
3 - 6 utility abilities like stun, slow, misdirection etc. - situational abilities that I dont need all the time.

Q - one of the main abilities
E - one of the main abilities
I also bound the following keys:

All keybinds except C also have a Shift and/or Ctrl modifier.
My essential keybinds are Q, E, R, 1 and 2 by themselves and also with Shift held down, that's 10 keybinds.

to be fair, I also bought a cheapo 35€ MMO-mouse which has 12 thumb buttons, those are mostly utility skills or things like pre-pot, health potion/healthstone, keybind for mounting up etc. BUT I also have 1 important ability on there: my interrupt.

I also use OPie to further decrease the amount of keybinds I need for all the things I wanted to access relatively fast. On my OPie rings I also just use stuff I dont need in the middle of the combat, because using OPie in combat takes too long.

Now your question regarding movement: While holding W with my middle finger, I can easily press 1, 2 and Q with my ring finger. 3-6, which I usually dont need while moving forward, can still be accessed with the index finger easily enough.
While holding D with my index finger, I use my middle finger to press Q, E, R and 1-4.
While holding A with my ring finger, I use my middle finger to press Q, 1 and 2. I use my index finger for E, R, F and 3-6.
You will need to twist your wrist to reach certain keybinds while pressing others simultaneously, but this is really not a problem.

Also might be worth noting: F is also a utility keybind for me, not part of my damage rotation. F is my movement skill (disengage for Hunters, Blink for mages etc.) while Shift + F is my self-heal. C is just my move pet command.

u/H3110MyNam31z · 2 pointsr/wow

I don't think there's any bundle deals going on currently for both, but Cataclysm is only $20 at Best Buy and it looks like MoP can be had for ~$25 on Amazon

I would suggest a laptop with pascal gpu but it seems like you are trying to spend around $800. For that price the best you can probably get is

u/xxSatirez · 1 pointr/wow

I've been using some form of MMO mouse for years now, since Cata, to be specific. I got the SteelSeries WoW mouse, which had something like 15 buttons all across the mouse. I switched to a Razer Naga and I don't feel like I could play without it now. I use my keyboard to type, Orbweaver to move and move through menus, and mouse to do shit. You can get a Chroma Naga for about the price of a AAA game right now. Give it a try, if you don't like it, you can always return it.

I skimmed some of the other comments and the mouse, much like a second monitor, is one of those things I couldn't live without now. The convenience factor is far too great to go away from.

u/crovax3000 · 1 pointr/wow

If you're willing to spend another $160, someone I play with has this laptop and says it works pretty well. Really, just something with a decent dedicated gpu will make a world of difference.

u/SausagePoptart · 4 pointsr/wow

I just got this for playing at work or on the road. For a laptop, its the right mix of processor, GPU, and an SSD drive for the price point. I run WoW as per Nvidia recommended settings at or above most "8" presets and it runs beautifully. Also almost no bloatware. The speakers suck, negated by headphones. Great system for the price.

u/DIXINMYAZZ · 2 pointsr/wow

Well, as many are posting already, you can go through them in a very stringent chronological order if you'd like to... or, you could do what I did, and try to dive right in to the core-lore, the oldest and most central stories: [Warcraft Archives] ( is a book containing 4 original stories that cover topics ranging from the origin of Thrall to Medivh and the opening of the Dark Portal. I loved all of them! The next one I plan to read is the [War of the Ancients Archive] ( which contains the three War of the Ancients books. Lot's of Night Elf lore! I personally find these collected tomes a perfect way to satiate my hunger for the real meat of Warcraft lore.

u/SodoMojo91 · 1 pointr/wow

After using the Naga for a few years I switched to this gem. Pretty much the same thing but more comfortable imo. The side buttons have a better feel to them, and you can customize colors and buttons. Plus it's on sale for 33.99 USD. Not sure what it would be in euros.

u/gnomecurious · 2 pointsr/wow

Amazon still has it for $26.59 (US version, I assume that's where you're from). Can get free shipping if you go with super saver.

u/wandrewa · 1 pointr/wow

Like this? Is the advantage over the standard WoW package on the 30 day trial card?

u/mjike · 1 pointr/wow

If you want a very budget gaming laptop look here:

That's currently the best bang for your buck "gaming" laptop available. It's almost $100 cheaper than the ASUS you linked and comes with the 960m rather than the 950m which is a HUGE difference. If you want a bit more info check out Linus's review of it from a few months ago.

u/ALittlesEnough · 1 pointr/wow

So something like this would be a good place to start?

So essentially I play the vanilla version plus all the expansions that come with the above link until I reach 90 and then I should purchase warlords of draenor?

u/Coheedic · 1 pointr/wow

The War of the Ancients trilogy is amazing. You can buy it in a paperback form that has all three in it.

Great starting point for anyone who wants to get into WoW Lore.

u/BlackThunda · 1 pointr/wow

That's definitely an improvement but you will probably want to save up and get one with an SSD drive. HDD's will tend to give you problems especially if you travel with it a lot. SSD will save you money in the long run.

Dell 15.6-Inch Gaming Laptop (6th Gen Intel Quad-Core i5-6300HQ Processor up to 3.2GHz, 8GB DDR3, 256GB SSD, Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M, Windows 10)

That dell has specs you would want to aim for, about $100 more. you get a bigger screen, beefier graphics and an SSD. Not sure how the i5 and i7 stack up but their performance is probably real similar. The dell CPU has a higher boost clock but the i7 has more cores.

Some people say 256gb is too small but I have no problem fitting all my games and work on mine at the same size.

If you video edit or something you'll need a bigger hard drive but snag an SSD and a 950m or higher for sure

Acer Aspire E 15, 15.6 Full HD, Intel Core i5, NVIDIA 940MX, 8GB DDR4, 256GB SSD, Windows 10, E5-575G-53VG

Oh and same price, but SSD + 950m

I almost got the Redragon Perdition after my Naga finally bit the dust, but ended up getting the UtechSmart Venus. Judging by your pictures the software is exactly the same, the buttons are also angled, but the mouse is all black so you don't get the weird color combos. I can't tell if one is bigger or smaller...I have small hands too so finding a mouse that doesn't feel giant is a challenge. Anyways, just throwing it out there as I am happy with mine too - I think they are both solid Naga alternatives.

u/Torachi · 6 pointsr/wow

This is what I use. I love it. It feels solid, the buttons have a good click to them, it's RGB lighting, and it's roughly $45-50 brand new from BestBuy.

Whatever order you choose to do, I definitely recommend picking up The WarCraft Archive as it contains 4 books: Day of the Dragon, Lord of the Clans, The Last Guardian, and Of Blood and Honor. Saves you a little bit of money as opposed to buying them individually.

Edit: It looks like there's a second WarCraft Archive for the War of the Ancients Trilogy as well.

You have got several options here:

| Book/Bundle | Content |
| Chronicle: Volume 1 | "This definitive tome of Warcraft history reveals untold stories about the birth of the cosmos, the rise of ancient empires, and the forces that shaped the world of Azeroth and its people." |
| War of the Ancients Trilogy | This trilogy covers the initial invasion of the Burning Legion some 10,000 years before the First War/Warcraft 1. Eventhough it is slightly tainted by Knaak's infamous writing and it has become hard/expensive to get your hands on a new copy; it remains essential in WoW's canon. |

Like /u/siphon101 said, if space/portability aren't an issue definitely go the desktop route.

That said, I bought a Acer Predator 300 last June (price hasn't changed) and have had no issues with any games, but definitely buy more storage as a 256 SSD will only get you so far. I used to have a dual monitor setup but surprisingly don't really miss it that much, sometimes I will hook up my old monitor though if I want to watch a movie.

u/nickglowsindark · 1 pointr/wow

I recently bought the Warcraft Chronicle books, and while it's a little disconcerting seeing them retcon a few things from back in the day, it does a great job explaining a lot of this kind of stuff. Specifically, the second book is like 80% "The Story of Gul'Dan." It was totally Sargeras trying to get a foothold on Draenor, finding a weak broken orc who couldn't cut it as a shaman, and helping him gain new power to lord over everyone else.

If you like the lore aspect of the game, I totally recommend getting the books:

Volume 1: (mostly about the titans and titanforged and Azeroth)

Volume 2: (mostly about Sargeras, Gul'dan, and the invasion of the horde from Draenor to Azeroth)

u/vgYoda · 1 pointr/wow

Sorry bud, but you're just probably bad.

Eat your words. If you're one of those people who just thinks it's all razer, you obviously aren't educated on anything gaming peripherals. There's a lot more than just razor at $100 for just a piece of garbage plastic mouse. I've seen and used a lot of different mice and keyboards, Razor definitely has had the worst quality of build and a longevity in how long they actually worked. They aren't bad by all means, but a lot of things are better, way cheaper, and you're pretty much paying for 2/3 the name, 1/3 the quality.

Another really good mouse.

u/Ryltarr · 2 pointsr/wow

Pick up the WoW Chronicle Vol 1, it's a great (relatively) short account of the origins of everything in the game; it tells the story right up to Medivh, in full with just the right amount of detail.
From there, you can fill in a lot of the blanks with gameplay info and wiki pages; and you can further compress it (but you'll lose stuff) for your friend.
edit: [Amazon link] I'm 100% sure you can find a free PDF or something similar, but I'm not looking for that.

u/FreddyPrince · 1 pointr/wow

Yeah the Naga has a left hand version, you can get it on their site or places like Amazon.

Haha, thank you! I use both this and this, hence the kinda weird layout. Do you like the blue and gold alliance colours on the bars and chat?

u/Nagello · 1 pointr/wow

If he needs a mouse this is one I would recommend.

I use the Naga but everyone I know that uses a G600 either wanted a Naga (then switched) or had a Naga and then got this most people tend to have a Naga that dies on them. Mine is fine so far but I heard that the G600 is better than the Naga both in construction and durability.

u/abecedarian_radish · 1 pointr/wow

Surprised nobody's mentioned the UtechSmart Venus mouse. It's inexpensive, better for larger hands and very well-made. 12-button grid on the side, programmable colors, all the good stuff.

u/Hawlingz · 1 pointr/wow

This is a much cheaper alternative, and I personally use this. It works well.

You need to be sure that your friend doesn't already have gaming mouse though.

u/Six6-Seven · 1 pointr/wow

I definitely recommend this one.

With the SSD and the 960M you will have no problem running the game at medium-high on 1080P. I have almost the same machine (i7 version) and I am always around 100 FPS outside of Dalaran/raids.

Aside from WoW, the laptop has been great although the display is a little dull and the track pad can take some getting used to. Nothing a keyboard/mouse + monitor can't solve though.

u/cafecito820 · 2 pointsr/wow

Op, I use the above method to great effect. I would suggest getting a 12 function mouse, like this, as it makes the game a more fun.
For the macro some helpful hints are to use the showtooltip and leave the macro image blank. When you click the modifier button it will change to the image of the selected spell.

> the basic upgrade to the Battle Chest (which comes with 30 days) is $19.99. If you wanted everything altogether through Mists of Pandaria, you could buy it in a bundle pack as a digital purchase through and that would save you approximately $20.

Buying WoW on Amazon is generally cheaper.

Battlechest: $20 from Blizzard, $17 from Amazon
Cataclysm: $10 from Blizzard, $8 from Amazon
MoP: $40 from Blizzard, $20 from Amazon

I don't actually see the bundle pack Araxom is talking about on the Blizzard store, but if we assume it's $20 off the above prices, that's still $50 for the whole kit and kaboodle from Blizzard vs. $45 from Amazon.

Now if you don't mind waiting for one of Blizzard's periodic Half Off Everything sales, that might be even cheaper, but who knows when the next one of those will happen.

u/smallgodinacan · 2 pointsr/wow

I couldn't find if there was any deals on purchase price under refer a friend. The scroll of resurrection promo would have been nice but appears to be over for now.

Probably because it was like 25 dollars for awhile. Guess they ended that sale

But like others said, you don't need to buy BFA

I like the Logitech MMO mouse too. You can map things slightly differently from a naga (wheel can tilt side to side, for example, each tilt can be mapped). Logitech’s software is some of the least aggravating out there. But their MMO mouse is pretty big and not modular, so sometimes it annoys my right hand after a while (small/female hands).

Tried the Corsair one, really didn’t like it or their software, it went back to Best Buy.

I swap between Nagas (currently the cordless epic from about six years ago) and Logitech, depending on where I am.

Ugly url but not a referral link (on mobile).

u/Xeniieeii · 1 pointr/wow

If you plan on reading them chronologically then /u/Cereon-EU 's link is 100% accurate, I can personally recommend reading them this way as it is nice to read chronologically.

If you plan on buying them online, buy whichever ones you think might enjoy. If you are going to buy them in store, try to get the Warcraft Archive Amazon Link
and the Chronicles of War Amazon Link
These are good because you get a total of 7 books(Last Guardian repeats) for the price of 4, AND they are all chronological to each other (no books missing in between)

u/aveforever · 1 pointr/wow

Looks like only EU is getting the super low price.

29.99 for US, still less than it originally marketed for. But it's also a physical copy so you have to wait for it to show up at your door.

I hear there are better options, again I see Razer getting a lot of heat on reddit. Mine has lasted well over two years though!

Edit: reposted under the correct comment thread

u/Athryl · 1 pointr/wow

You can probably find it in stores too...I am pretty sure I have seen this version at my local Target. But it's always been more expensive than the $5 online deal right now.

This will likely be my next laptop. SSD drive which cuts down loading screens by tons, room for a second normal drive for reg storage and good to run WoW on Ultra.

This one seems good.

If you want to read it:

You'll get a lot of "Ah-ha" and "Whaaat!?!" and "Oh, yeah" moments. And please don't do any spoilers for the ones who hasn't read it yet.

u/Itsgoodwhenthingsfit · 1 pointr/wow

I play on my macbook and its all good!

The other day i bought this bad boy and its made it much easier. My fingers were starting to hurt after longer sessions.

u/IOnceWasLegend · 1 pointr/wow

I bought the UtechSmart Venus last year on sale for ~$20 and I've been extremely happy with it:

u/weru20 · 1 pointr/wow

i Think im going for the Naga, im looking at my local amazon and saw varyng prices, this is the correct one?

Thanks in advance guys

u/dothack5415 · 9 pointsr/wow

A book just came out that does a really good job. Its on sale right now on amazon

u/Catheroth · 1 pointr/wow

So a good way to start out is to go to Amazon and buy the BATTLE Chest, it's for $20, it ces with expacs ALL the way up to Draenor and one free month too (the link for it)

u/MeatyChunks · 6 pointsr/wow

How about the Chronicle book? It's full of amazing art and lore. Maybe you could get the Druid job crest put on a cake or something too.

u/Terra_don · 1 pointr/wow

World of Warcraft: Chronicle Volume 1-3 summarize the story of WoW from the dawn of time to the end of the Cataclysm expansion.

u/edmontonherpderp · 1 pointr/wow

Lore catch up books. Mostly aimed at telling us about stuff you probably shouldn't know I'm character, but also covers a lot of history and magic, etc. I find it really interesting and well illustrated, too. Maybe less relevant for why you want to learn the lore, but the best way to keep people from calling you ignorant about Void Lords or other stuff that's barely mentioned in game. And there is information about the origins of the races and significant events related to them. It's just that some of it is arguably too far back, like the Curse of Flesh and Human-Vrykul links.

I linked book 1, but there's also book 2, which goes to the end of the second war IIRC and includes a lot about Draenor.

u/Stirred · 38 pointsr/wow

Chronicle Volume 2 is the Blizzard history book that just came out:


There is online store where you can buy codes to sent to his e-mail for in-game special mounts/pets, but it would be tough to know if that would be something he didn't have or even wanted:


Blizzard also has their own gear store:


I like the Murloc mug, personally.

u/ConceptualTrap · 1 pointr/wow

Here you go...

Base game: Comes with all expansions up to MoP ($16.97)

Buy WoD digitally through Battle.Net for $49.99. You'll get a free 90.

u/moridin9 · 1 pointr/wow

This is a good place to start, and this is the next volume due out next year.

u/Cereon-EU · 1 pointr/wow

Amazon appears to have it for around 27$ too:

I don't know if it's actually 27$ tho or if there are additional costs like taxes and stuff.

u/drich_34 · 1 pointr/wow

I just bought a Utech Venus reviews look good so I am gonna give it a try. I posted the link if you want to take a look at it.

u/Norumu · 7 pointsr/wow

> Demon hunters face blindness (but not really) in exchange for awesome power.

There's a lot more to it, actually! They are in an eternal conflict with the soul of a demon that they absorbed into themselves, which is being held back by their willpower and runic branding that covers their skin. They are constantly in a battle of wills, which is physically, mentally, and magically exhausting all just so they can tap into the demonic powers of that soul to unleash the powers they have.

You should read World of Warcraft: Illidan by William King if you want to get a more detailed description of the Demon Hunter struggles. It's pretty good!

u/rsmith91487 · 2 pointsr/wow

MOP is about $28 on Amazon right now, not a bad deal really. Depending on how long you want to wait, I can guarantee you there will be some type of sale for Black Friday/Cyber Monday

u/gefroy · 3 pointsr/wow - Press look inside button above the image to view a short section of the book. Looks good to my eyes.

u/mmosarecool · 1 pointr/wow

Logitech G600 Way better than a razer product in terms of quality and functionally.

I've never been one for the big fancy mechanical keyboards, way too noisey and cringey for my taste. This is the only one I would buy solely due to it's aesthatics.

u/rcc6214 · 1 pointr/wow

Here, I will actually be useful.

Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse, RGB Backlit, 20 Programmable Buttons

u/TheEskil · 2 pointsr/wow

For some reason your comment made me think that the book had limited availability and thus a steep price tag. Happy to learn that is not the case.

Found it on Amazon for $26.96

u/Zilveari · 3 pointsr/wow

It is in this book. The stuff in his spoiler is true for the most part.

u/psychobatshitskank · 5 pointsr/wow

For quick information I prefer wowpedia. If you're looking to spend money I highly recommend getting Chronicle.

u/peroxidex · 1 pointr/wow

'tag' represents Amazon's referral program, not 'ref'.

If you were simply attempting to clean up the link, then why not go all the way?

u/Vorrigan · 2 pointsr/wow

None of the expansions are obsolete in the sense that tbere is nothing to do, the gear is only worth transmog, but you experience all of it as you quest.

For the game, get this set and then you will only have to buy Warlords of Draenor and the upcoming Legion.

Subscription fee is btw 12 - 14/mo depending on how much you pay at a time.

As for servers, either go with servers designated for new players or ask around on or in this sub.

Hope that helps.

u/Arkimedes5 · 2 pointsr/wow

This is the one I use use as a backup, it is a little more expensive that you wanted but it handles the game real well.

u/edit1754 · 2 pointsr/wow

I am unfortunately not familiar with this game, so I don't know how what the performance would be in specific parts of it. I just searched for Acer E5-575 and found this thread lol.

You can check benchmarks here:

I'm guessing this is what you're looking for

Books came out at different times, but there's a chronological order for the novels on that page. Also, there are the Chronicles. Two books that go through the full history.

Both the novels, and the chronicles are worth reading.

u/Distickstoffoxid · 5 pointsr/wow

There is a Illidan Novel out since april this year: Illidan: World of Warcraft

only have the german link:

u/EthnicTwinkie · 1 pointr/wow

I use an MMO mouse. It allows me to pretty much keybind 12 keys for easy access. I'm so used to it that I have actually set it to use 36 keys. 1 through =, then Shift + 1 through = and Ctrl + 1 through =. I mount up, use all my profession skills, combat, everything through keybinds.

My wife uses the Razer Naga, however I have been using the Perdition Redragon for over a year and really like it - and it's about 2/3rds the price of the Naga

EDIT: They say it takes about 18 hours of actual gameplay to get used to using the buttons on the side of the mouse. I'd say that's about right. Inside of a week I was used to the buttons. In a month, I hated using mice w/o those buttons.

u/Teugeus · 2 pointsr/wow

I got this one about a year ago and it has served me well so far, those extra buttons make all the difference.

u/raynman37 · 1 pointr/wow

This one is on sale for $36 and has almost 2000 good reviews. I haven't personally used it yet, but I bought it yesterday.

u/Captain_Rex_ · 1 pointr/wow

I personally like this one,

I have a Naga but my roommate got the one in the link, I'll be getting that when my Naga dies.
