I know video content on GB has been getting longer and longer recently, but a video that goes for thirty days? That's just ridiculous.

Posted by Aishan

@beachthunder: So how many days have you been waiting to submit that comment?

Edited by DeadpanCakes

Oh right, I forgot there was gonna be an early upload

Edit: Oh weird, I assumed Rorie would be on this for some reason.

Dan is like having someone new to your country come visit, we get to watch him experience so many new things!

Edited by Gaff

Oh man, popcorn time. And I wish I had some beers (at noon!) to fend off the waves of nostalgia...

Edited by Shaanyboi

This is one early-ass upload

Posted by BeachThunder

@aishan: Just thought of it a couple of minutes before the video :P

I've never played an MMO either, but now this is making me want to play WOW :| Help.

What a great time to upload as an Aussie. Looking forward to this, WoW isn't really a very watchable game so I'm interested to see how they approach it.

Posted by Rowr

Awesome! This is a feature I can get behind.

Next I want to see brad supervise Dan playing Dota!

Posted by fredrikb

I would have thought the Panda-race was the obvious choice!

Posted by rmanthorp

This is going to be FUN! Dan I'll help you kill Worgs anyday.

I absolutely hate the direction that WoW has gone, but it was inevitable and I don't blame Blizzard at all for going the route.

You're near the ocean! ;)

Goddammit I have feeling this is gonna get me to play Wow again.

Edited by Village_Guy

I'm a little afraid about this, I love World of Warcraft, but hopefully it will go well.

EDITS:

A human, really? The most boring race possible, okay...

Man, it is weird watching somebody who has never played an MMO before.

As someone who has also never played an MMO, I can relate with Dan on a lot of this.

Keyboard turner, but at least he's not a clicker. Love you, Dan.

The quest of CerebralAss begins

Posted by nobel

Dat keyboard turning.

Posted by Syndrom

God that camera is real close.

Dan just went into a very dark hole.

Edited by fibabanchi

This is a great idea guys! I am now a monthly subscriber :)

Edited by Corvak

opportunity missed, opening on a "Pandaria's Box" pun.

As a WoW player of ten years...I wish I could play it again for the first time :)

I love some things about the game, I hate some others, but it's still the game i've put the most hours into.

Posted by OhDearAudrey

dan should have went shaman :/

Edited by MooseyMcMan

This should be interesting.

Edit: HAHAHAHAHA, that name Dan chose.

Posted by ToTheNines

I have never played WoW or an MMO either, so I have decided to travel with Dan through these videos. Even though I would normally skip any video that revolves around an MMO. Maybe I will like it.. I fear that I will.

Posted by hollitz

WoW Endurance Run?

Posted by Hayt

"I want to use melee and lightning"

Good thing he settled on Warrior and not Shaman.

Posted by fuzzyset

Doesn't WoW have tutorials on first play through? Did Dan intentionally turn that off?

Edited by SKUupin

As someone who played WoW for a month just before BC came out before the boredom set in, and who has no real love for the Warcraft lore, I am astounded at so much of this video.

Also; how could Rorie not be in on this video?

Edit: Much love for the Australian friendly upload time.

Edited by Osiris

Hilarious how Jeff is stuck in Vanilla WoW, "warrior is like the tanking class and paladin is defensive"... These days, any class can play every spec in a viable way, so a paladin is good a tanking, healing and dps. Not saying they are all good especially on a hardcore level, but they are all viable for play.

Posted by obcdexter

Man, Dan is a happy dude!

Oh, F.L.U.D.D.! I just got that.

Edit: It's so weird that this was released a week after the podcast where they talk about all that stuff.

I think they wanted someone who knew a bit about the game, but not much. Dan wanted to find stuff on his own, Rorie would've just guided him to where he needed to go. It would be kinda cool to get a different person in each video though, to get a different perspective on the game each time (Brad knows more about it than Jeff, Rorie knows more than Brad).

Edited by SKUupin

@amyggen: He can level his helper as he levels his character. If the plays enough between episodes, that could work.

Edited by selbie

This is a good idea if they are going to try out different MMOs for a month.

Also, I'm really surprised Blizzard haven't updated the models a little more. Even games like Eve Online have had a few upgrades since its release.

Posted by Flavbot

As much as I have wised up and left MMO's behind I still miss playing WoW with my old guild. Back then I didn't have time to play anything but WoW and I have now realized the genre relies on smartly wasting your time, if you want to be cynical about it, but damn did I have some fun times raiding and haning out with guildies. Made friends for life there.

Edited by sworen

Beginning of this video was me going "He wants to be an enhancement shaman!" lightning and melee all around.

Edited by Willin

Wow, Dan really knows nothing about MMOs.

Posted by D_W

I never played WoW but have played other MMOs and holy shit WoW has not aged well despite the graphical updates, but I guess that's to be expected.

WoW kind of ruined all other MMOs.

Posted by Zacagawea

A Human Male and a Warrior on top of that, boo

Posted by Humanity

I feel like they should have had Rorie riding shotgun on this feature.

Posted by mrblobby64

@ohdearaudrey: Yeah I was thinking this too. I guess from what Jeff was saying from playing a lot of the game in the beta and as alliance that he wouldn't really know much about shamans so wouldn't have been able to make that connection for Dan. But whatever, this still looks to be a great set of content regardless of character choice.

Posted by GeneralBison

8 minutes in and I'm already reeling. I'll try and make it through this one, I promise =_=

Boy this was rough to watch but also kind of amazing. Its like watching a kid learn to ride a bike and constantly fall off but then he gets back up and you're all yayyy. haha cant wait for the next 3 parts.

Posted by Y2Ken

I am so excited about this feature. Looking forward to the rest of it. I think it'd be good to bring Rorie in but not until right at the end, so he can pass judgement on Dan's progress and explain to him where the next steps would take him if he decided to continue on his adventure.

Edited by BasketSnake

Go through the high peaks of the mighty mountains and enter the pass of death! "Oh, it's here."

And you should've named your character Donbradman

Posted by mrwolf710

This is absolutely fascinating. I didn't realize quite how much stuff we all take for granted in these games - things that Dan doesn't have any inkling of. It's just amazing to watch.
