hey guys

My gf & I just started a WoW trial together and were hoping to group, only to find that neither of us can invite the other to a group - having read about it I see why they did this (stop spammers) but don't suppose there's any way for us to play together in a group?

I guess if we could get someone else to invite us both and then leave that group that might work, but it ain't exactly practical...

any suggestions???

thanks

I think the only way around is is exactly the one you put.

If you're on al'akir, join the xbrains chat room (/join xbrains) and just ask someone there to invite both of you, everyone there is either an ex-brainser (ie from this forum) or an amazon basiner, so they'll help, i guess!

kaz - think it's a recent (dec-07) thing - we get a message saying something like 'trial users are not allowed to invite'

thanks for the offer but unfort al'akir was full so we couldn't join that. thankfully we've been able to find a couple of people kind enough to help us - at least that way works and it means we have been able to play together.

Also - made our first mistaken assumption - we battled to the end of our hardest quest so far (mine full of level 9-10 creatures with a lv12 boss! omg!), killed the big bad guy but got taken out before we could collect the requisite item to prove success. It was late and we were tired so we thought we'd take the 25% durability hit to our items and get straight back there, finish off the last couple of workers, collect our items and head back and log out.

Of course as you guys all know, it dont work like that :( - when we decided to resurrect immediately we were immensely disappointed!

I take it you are using trial accounts to play the game not the full retail version?

If that is the case you won't be able to invite people to groups afaik as it's an anti spam mechanism to stop gold sellers spamming invites out to advertise gold. Maybe it's removed when you hit a certain level?
Thats my guess anyway!


edit. Ignore me i totally answered a question you didn't ask :oops:
