Just bought WOW...
I had to buy it, since everyone touts it as the greatest thing since sliced bread.
Now, keep in mind I'm a FPS fan, with BF2 and fear being my favorites. So, I'd like to know what makes this game so amazing, and also what kind of tips I should know before giving it a go.
(I haven't installed it yet, so the 30-day trial isn't running)

YAY your lucky you have dsl.
If you like FPS' i think that you might not like it untill you level up. Not too exciting buying startup stuff.
Install it and play it its total awesomness that a newb such as myself and someone who doesnt have it and cant get dsl to explain.
NOTE: Ive never bought it cause no dsl/cable so wait for someone who has to post. (I would kill for dsl) That way i could actually get good at the games i like.
Be a warrior or a paladin. Warriors have tons of health and paladins can heal so when you are almost dead you can heal.I'm PL, I've come to suck all the intelligence out of this thread.

When I did game a lot, I was into mostly FPS's. I got WoW, played it for the free month, and then I decided it wasn't worth the $13 a month. Best thing I can suggest is to join a guild, or at least play with some of your friends since they can guide you along the way.

Well you could have tried a 10 day pass... any of the wow players here can give you one.
After that you could buy the game and keep whatever progress you got..
Well WoW is totally different than a FPS... Its totally inmersive and will steal your Real Life...
If you played Warcraft games you will astonished how they mixed all and made it a sucefull MMORPG, WoW is quest based, so you basically choose a faction, chose sex, class and name it..
Progression is based in Experience and Quests, as you progress trought the game you gain levels and new abilities...
You get most of it when you join a guild.. That way it will be easier to level up and explore the dungeons, where the most frustanting and rewarding encounters exists.
Most people that play for the first day tend to continue some not.. the best way to know is that you start to play it!
And for TIMO sake reference behold

Kinda put-off already...
I don't like the auto renew w/ my cc at $15/mo, especially after I just spent $30 on the game itself.
On top of that, between installation and patches, it's been almost 2 hours just to get the damn game installed.

if you;re afraid of paying 13 dollars each month. just get guild wars. who cares if isnt as big as WoW, ITS FREE. i dont play any more, i just got bored of it, if i played WoW i would probably get bored too and pissed off about the fact that i spent alot of money on a semi useless thing.
Games like Gunz the Duel is my type of game. its free and it takes alot of skill to play

What's a "rouge?" You're going to play makeup? I don't see that being a very good class.
It's hard to get into WoW for very long if you don't know someone or meet someone to cooperate with. Otherwise, there's very little point to the game that you're wasting so much money and time on.
But if you do know people, or get into a good guild, playing with the other people makes it worth it.
Then again, you may totally hate it.

Rogue: Pretty easy to level up, end game is questionable.. but great damage.
Warrior: Not incredibly difficult to level but beware that if you die in an instance there isa good chance the entire party will wipe so a lot rides on your shoulders.
Druid: Difficult class to learn, but very high survival rate if you get good at the class... mostly healer though
Shaman: Tough buggers, can wear mail plus great offense skills
Pally: Can wear plate, and heal.. can alt tank when necessary.
Mage: Difficult to level solo, but very effective in instances for crowd control and damage.
Warlock: Good damage, has a pet to help tank while questing.
Priest: Can be slow and Difficult to level, but always a high need for priests in guilds and end game instances.
WoW is a fun game once you get a few friends to play with.
If you dont mind playing on a normal server (non-pvp), you can look me up on Muradin server alliance.
Usually on later at night > 8pm EST
Got a good guild that is getting bigger.

I got a level 60 undead mage.... I bet I can beat anybody in PvP.
Anyways, to the point.
Usually, people are divided on whether to become horde or alliance. Once you pick whatever, then you can choose your character. Let me fix Vass' character overview.
Rogue: The best PvP character no doubt. High-end armors and weapons will instantly grant you easy rankings through PvP and BG, etc.
Warrior: The easiest class to LEARN. Usually, a lot of the noobs pick this class. Very easy to control and not that hard to use. Pure Tank.
Druid: A mix of different classes. (priest, warrior, rogue) Not professional in each aspect, but if a player can use variety of these skills, then he/she can own.
Shaman: Ask washe. He knows what a shaman is.
Pally: Like a warrior. Can heal and wear plate armor. Not effective as a warrior at tanking, but can alt.
Mage: Very tricky and only good to level up in higher areas by group, since it can't tank. However, end-game raiding is one of the most needed classes besides priests and locks. Has a lot of instant cast so you can no doubt kill enemies in few buttons. (also in bg and PvP)
Warlock: Almost similar to mages, but uses dark magic. Debuffs + negative attributes are used. Great for raiding, since it will be very hard without warlocks to take down nefarion or ragnaros.
Priest: the MOST BORING CLASS to level. However, you can choose two different specs. Shadow/healing. Shadow = PvP and Healing = raiding. You can choose.
