For what platforms is the game available?
The game is available for PCs and Macs.

Yes, the game requires a 3D graphics card. We support a wide range of 3D cards that conform to the system requirement outlined above. Specific 3D card support information can be found here.

Is the game playable over a dial-up connection?
Yes, a 56.6k modem or higher is required.

The game supports third-person and first-person camera perspectives. Players can utilize the mouse wheel to adjust the camera angle as the situation dictates and switch between cameras on the fly.

Apple's OS X Boot Camp software lets me boot Windows XP on my Intel-based Mac. Can I run Blizzard games under Windows using Boot Camp on these systems?
Yes, you can if you wish. However, please note that as OS X Boot Camp is in beta form, we can't offer technical support for Blizzard games run under Windows using Boot Camp at this time.

What is Blizzard's plan for native Mac OS support, now that Boot Camp is available?
We have a recognized track record of native Mac OS support, and we have no plans to break with that tradition. We understand that our Mac player base prefers native software whenever possible, and our cross-platform development practice addresses that.

================================================== ================================================== =======================

2) Minimum / Recommended Spec for WoW : The Burning Crusade (TBC)


What does the title of the World of Warcraft expansion refer to?
"The Burning Crusade" refers to the Burning Legion's ongoing efforts to destroy life throughout the universe. To date, the Burning Legion's exploits have been documented in Warcraft III and in our War of the Ancients novel trilogy. As part of World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade, players are able to travel through the Dark Portal to confront the Legion on otherworldly battlefields.

What are some of the features of the expansion?
In addition to new races, zones, and dungeons, there are a number of other new features included in the Burning Crusade expansion. Check out the features page for more details.

What is the ESRB rating for the expansion?
World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade is rated "Teen" by the ESRB.

Do you have to pay any more than the current monthly fee for the expansion?
No. While you need to purchase the expansion in order to upgrade, you will continue to have the same subscription options available to you.

How many copies of the expansion are needed for players with multiple accounts?
You need one copy of the expansion for every World of Warcraft account that you wish to upgrade.

Do you need to own the expansion to play with friends who have it?
There are many aspects of the expansion that are available to all players. However, in order to experience certain content, such as Outland, or be able to play as one of the new races, players have to purchase the expansion.

What content is restricted to those with the expansion?
There are a number of features in The Burning Crusade that are only available to expansion owners. To name a few: the two new races, the ten new levels of experience (level 61-70), all of the new zones, and the new Jewelcrafting profession.

Is there a downloadable option for The Burning Crusade?
Yes. Please go to our Burning Crusade Digital Upgrade page to download The Burning Crusade.

Is there a Collector's Edition of The Burning Crusade?
Yes, there is a Collector's Edition package available. For more details on what's included, see our official Collector's Edition page.

Will there eventually be a "combo pack" including both the original game and expansion (with the appropriate CD Keys)?
We have no plans to do so at this time. However, it's always possible that we will at some point in the future.

MMO glossary :

The Daedalus Project wrote:
MMORPG Lexicon

A numerical translation for "elite" pronounced "leet," 1337 is a slang developed by hackers in the '80s used over the internet. Many words from the slang have leaked to popular culture today ("kidz" is an example; using a z instead of an s is an element of 1337). It is mostly prevalent in the gaming world online where people can interact textually.

Area Effect. Used to refer to area-effect spells or abilities. E.g. fireball, smoke grenade.

Away from keyboard

As a verb, it refers to a hostile mob that has noticed a player and is actively trying to attack that player. As a noun, it refers to the amount of “hostility” the player has generated on the mob. In typical combat strategy, the fighter tries to take as much aggro as possible away from weaker players such as healers and mages.

Short for "alternate". It refers to the alternate character a player has from their main character. This is not a stable category as sometimes alts can outlevel mains and sometimes mains become moth-balled.

Same as AE. Area of Effect.

e.g. Strength, Constitution, Dexterity, Intelligence, etc.

In certain MMOs, characters are teleported back to a safe spot when they die. This spot is predetermined by the user. The act of determining the safe spot requires an explicit action by the user. That action is known as a bind. The spot is typically referred to as a bind spot.

Bio (Biasanya = AFK, Bio 1 mins etc)
Short for biological. Usually used to indicate bathroom break.

Short for "bind on equip" - a term popularized by World of Warcraft. This term refers to items that become soulbound to the player after they have been equipped. In other words, the item can be traded as long as no one equips it.

Short for "bind on pickup" - a term popularized by World of Warcraft. This term refers to items that become soulbound to the player after it has been picked up from a monster. In other words, the item cannot be traded once a player picks it up. BoP items commonly cause looting conflicts and disputes during game-play.

“be right back”

Generally illegal and discouraged form of gameplay, where actions of a character can be automated to perform actions repeatedly in order to gain experience and level without actual user intervention. This practice is continually monitored by GMs and will cause suspension of service if one is suspected of botting.

“be right there”

“by the way”

Temporary boost to character attribute or combat ability

The act of remaining in an area to hunt a specific mob or a specific spawn

Professional archetypes. In D&D games, these would be warrior, healer, rogue and mage. The most typical class types are: close-range damage, ranged damage, healing, crowd control, support.

Cleric/AKA Paladins in WoW Razz
Typical healing class in D&D style games

In certain MMOs, a corpse appears where the player died. Sometimes all the player’s items and money are left on the corpse and the player is teleported back to their bind spot. Corpses typically will decay after a certain time proportional the character’s level.

Corpse Run
The act of retrieving your corpse after you have died. This is typically a dangerous thing because people tend to die in dangerous places rather than safe places.

A general category of skills that allows players to manufacture objects from raw resources

"To crit" refers to landing a critical hit either with melee or spells. Effective damage is usually increased from a base of 150% to upwards of 250% with extra talents/skills/buffs.

Crowd Control/CC
Refers to a set of spells / abilities that temporarily paralyze or stun other mobs or players. Crowd control is an important group support ability when fighting multiple mobs.

Direct Damage. Used to refer to a class of spells and abilities that allow players to damage enemies from a distance. The firebolt is the archetypal DD.

The opposite of a buff. An offensive spell cast on enemies that weakens an attribute or combat ability.

Dirt Nap
Slang for dead. Most corpses lie on the ground when killed.

Dragon kill points. A fairly elaborate score-keeping system used by guilds to fairly distribute loot based on participation and contribution to the guild.

Damage over time. Refers to a class of spells that deals damage over a period of time. These spells typically do more damage than DD spells overall.

Damage per second. Used when figuring out weapon speed and damage.

A quantity gained when completing tasks/quests, killing mobs, or various other achievements in games. When enough experience is accrued, characters often “level up” and become more powerful.

The act of accumulating currency or a specific item by repeatedly killing a mob or repeatedly performing a series of actions

Acronym for "for the win". Refers to the act, ability, event that's responsible for a victory. For example, "Sheep FTW!!" - sheep being a spell that temporarily paralyzes an enemy.

Verb. To be ganked is a term referring to one player being overwhelmed and killed by a large group. Can be either by a group of other players doing player-kill or a group of NPC monsters. Used in a sentence, "I got ganked yesterday in Fel." Typically has the connotation that the other people had an unfair advantage (in number or level).

Game Master. GM's are characters in an MMORPG who are used by employees of the game's creator company. They monitor the actions of the game world and answer the questions and complaints of the players. They have absolute control and power within the game. If the crime (breaking a law of the game, not the real world) committed is serious enough, they could even expel players permanently from the game.

Biasa juga dipakai untuk menyebut Guild Master, alias pimpinan guild.

Title for a player who enjoys inflicting pain upon other players needlessly. If you kill newbies in a PvP game when you are level 50, you will gain no experience or benefit from the victimization beyond the pure joy of knowing you have given the player “grief.” Though griefers are almost always PKers, PKers are not necessarily griefers.

Semi-permanent player groups. In typical games, players must use a substantial amount of capital to start the guild.

“good to go” and “got to go” - can be confusing when context is unclear

Health/HP=Hit Points
A base attribute of characters

“in my humble opinion”

Abbreviation for "incoming". When a tank pulls for group, the tank will use this as warning that a mob is incoming.

“in real life”

An instantiation of a particular dungeon for a particular group of players. Instanced dungeons are then parallel worlds such that different groups of players can explore the same dungeon in separate groups.

“just kidding”

To lure a mob or player around much like a kite on a string while attacking it in some capacity. A player draws agro and the mobility of the monster is reduced. The monster tries to follow the target (thus becoming the kite on the string with the target hold the string.) In EQ a common kiting is DoT (Damage over time) with a snare (reduces the monsters speed) then running in a large circle until the monster is dead. Methods of kiting vary from game to game.

Kill Stealing. When another player attacks the same creature as another player and receives the reward for the kill instead of the person who originated combat. Newer games have mechanisms for discouraging this behavior.

Link dead - when a player is disconnected from the game

Sekarang banyakan pake istilah DC'd (Disconnected)

Slang variant of “elite”

“looking for group”

“looking for more”, i.e., after a group has been formed and more members are needed.

“laughing my ass off”

“laughing out loud”

Line of sight. A requirement of most ranged abilities is that the view of the target not be obstructed by any fixed obstacle, such as a wall.

Currency or items that are dropped by a mob when it is defeated

A commonly-used pool of magic potential (magical analog of health points)

Programming term applied to user-made macros, or scripts that can automatically send messages, cast spells, and a variety of other functions. Mainly used to automate things that are repeatedly done to expediate gameplay.

Massively-Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game

An AI controlled monster. 'Mob' originally comes from the MUD era, where it was short for 'mobile', to differentiate monsters that would patrol a set of rooms as opposed to monsters which would stay in one place until killed.

Abbreviation of modification. Used as both a verb and a noun. As a noun, refers to add-ons by 3rd party programmers designed to augment the game (e.g., the self-cast mod). As a verb, refers to the act of performing this modification (e.g., he's modding the interface).

“mistell”. Mistells occur frequently because of typing in the wrong name before sending a message. Also because of auto-reply features.

Kalo di WoW untuk raids/instaces, MT = Main Tank, biasanya warrior dengan protection spec, gunanya untuk handle boss/mobs, supaya ga ngincer player lain.

In many games, due to long travel times or inventory limits, it is helpful to create a character explicitly for the purpose of being able to check auction houses or store extra items. These characters are seldom actually played and are referred to as mules.

To soften or reduce an ability, item, player, or action. Usually this is a term applied when a power or ability is reduced because it is perceived to be too powerful.

Newbie/Newb/N00b etc
A new player

Ninja (Looting)
Ninja looting refers to the purposeful and malicious looting of a drop from a monster that doesn't follow the rules set by the group. In a sense, the item is stolen. This can take different forms in different games due to game-specific game looting mechanisms. In World of Warcraft, ninja looting refers to rolling for a BoP drop that a person should not have rolled on. Because WoW warns players when they roll for a BoP object, it is assumed that such behavior cannot be accidental. The player exhibiting such behavior is typically branded as a ninja looter.

The pejorative form of newbie

“no problem”

Non-player character (ie. controlled by AI)

Refers to casters, to cast the highest damage spell or spell combo to effectively pull or finish of a npc. Mages usually are the most effective class in highest burst damage.

“oh my god”

“on my way”

“out of mana”

Derived from the original word "own," both words have the same meaning: to defeat some other entity in battle or other form of competition. The "pwnz" origin is probably from the fact that the "o" and "p" keys are adjacent on the standard qwerty keyboard, and were used interchangeably by mistake in games and stuck around since then.

Short for teleport. Used as a noun and a verb.

Power Level
When a higher level player tries to help a lower level player level faster. Most games have mechanisms that prevent power leveling.

Abbreviation of "programmed random occurence", refers to usually the benefits of added damage or other buffing enhancement that occurs randomly when an item strikes or is used.

Pick-up Group - a group assembled on the spot for a quest, a PvP group, or an instance raid.

A standard hunting strategy where a player lures a single or a group of mobs to the group so that the group can hunt from a safe area instead of hunting in areas where new mobs may spawn.

Player vs. Environment. Environment stands for all monsters (mobs) in the world

Player vs. Player combat

same as ownz

Typically fantastical creations, such as Elves, Trolls and the like.

A more substantial engagement involving a large organized group of players typically set in a dungeon and involving difficult mobs

At certain high levels in some games, you are given the chance to “respec” your character. When you respec, you recreate your character from level 1 until the present level in terms of skills/powers/abilities/etc.

Short for resurrection. Refers to abilities that revive players that have just died. Typically only available to healer classes.

“rolling on floor laughing”

To "roll" on an item means to type "/random 100", where the server's random number generator puts out a number between 1 and 100, the most generally accepted "fair" way to distribute loot and settle disputes.

Can refer to a class of abilities as well as its effect. A root spell immobilizes a target. The target is then said to be rooted. Early versions of these abilities involved references to plants, hence "root".

Realm vs. Realm.

Due to technical reasons, each server can only support a limited amount of players. Each MMORPG typically has several servers. Players cannot interact with players on other servers.

The act of playing alone, hunting mobs alone.

An item-control mechanic where an item cannot be traded. In other words, only one person can own the object and it cannot be traded. See also BoE and BoP.

Mobs typically appear (spawn) on a given schedule. This is both a verb and noun.

Short for specification. When used in games, it usually refers to the build/specifications of your character in terms of skills/abilities/magic/powers/etc.

A typical form of crowd control ability that immobilizes an enemy

As a noun, refers to character classes that can take a lot of damage. As a verb, refers to the act of drawing aggro from mobs before other team members strike with their abilities.

As a verb, the act of giving currency or valuable items to a newbie. As a noun, refers to a character that is twinked. In many games, twinked characters are visually marked by their level-inappropriate gear.

Slang form of super

“welcome back”

To "wipe" means for the entire group whether party or raid to all die. However, party or raid can only continue if there is a class that can resurrect oneself, thereby avoiding the time consumed from running back from the the graveyard and regrouping at the beginning of the instance.

Synonymous with "hooray" or "way to go".

Abbreviation for World of Warcraft. An online game.

“want to buy”

“want to sell”
(Bukan "WTS" kayak di Indo Razz)

experience points

A combat strategy where a large group of players rush in at the target. Seen as a simple-minded strategy that requires no skill.

In games where different areas of the world are parceled out for loading reasons, different areas are referred to as zones.
