Question for you wow players out there. So I recently moved and got a new internet connection. Its pretty ******* slow, ( 3 Mbit/s I think) can barely play 480p videos on youtube (will occasionally have to buffer) I played cata up until the pre-expansion patch and was always a serious raider. Do you guys think A. MoP is worth it and B. my connection can handle it?

Wow takes up surprisingly little bandwidth, nuro is right in that you'll need a decent graphics card, but the internet connection part should be fine. The boss he's referring to is the sha of anger, which is a world boss that isn't needed for progression but may cause heavy lag.

I do have a good graphics card (i built my computer for gaming) just my internet connection is ******

Yea, I'd just avoid the sha/galleon and possibly quest hubs at peak hours, but yea, if the bandwidth is the only major concern, it'll be fine.

another problem though - roommates watching netflix like 24/7 :/

Hmm, not quite sure then, I just know that wow uses a lot less bandwidth then you think it would.

Well that is reassuring. I used to play on a 9 Mbit/s connection and i would never have any problems, even in 25 man raids and big BGs. you prolly just talked me into giving it a shot hah

MoP is very very, very pretty graphics wise, but I think if you have the graphics uber low and avoid highly populated area you should be fine. I pity you though, there's a major world boss I believe you have to kill before you can gain access to the raids(that's, at least, what I was told), and he's a 40 man raid... I usually play pretty well with lower graphics and I tend to lag during the fight with him.

I am sure if i do get the game i will have no problem downing the boss, the guild i should still be in was one of the top raiding guilds on my server, im just worried i will go out and spend $60 on the game and another $15 for a month of gameplay then won't be able to play because of my internet

Like I said and other have commented, just avoid highly populated areas and you should be fine.
