Greetings! I'm a new member here, and let me introduce myself. I'm from New York, been playing World of Warcraft on the North American servers. I'm still in New York, and I'm keen on playing on the Taiwanese servers.

Is it also relevant that I'm Chinese American?

Anyway, I'm a bit puzzled on how to actually get onto the realms... I was a bit scared when account creation asked me for my ID number. So a whole load of questions here:

1 ) Is a copy of Taiwanese World of Warcraft obtainable in Hong Kong or America?
2 ) Are the cards obtainable in Hong Kong or America?
3 ) Do I have to provide my ID number?
4 ) Can I have a seprate client for the North American game and for the Taiwanese Game?
5 ) Does Taiwan use minute-by-minute cards like Mainland China and Korea?
6 ) How are the servers? (e.g. laggy, smooth)
7 ) How is the community?
8 ) What patch version are the Taiwanese servers on?

I can get some of this information for the official site, but I can't read Chinese - I can only speak it. I'd also much rather get the information in vicious detail from the locals.

Thanks a lot!

1: You want to play wow in English or Chinese? I will try try find a link for TW version
2: Cards available from Taiwan/Hongkong and even China
3: When you register you can give your ID number if you want, just make sure to give a real email etc
4: Yes, make a copy and edit the realmlist
5: Yes, around $38HKD for 1800mins
6: Hopefully you will get 50-200ms
7: We have about 5 regulars with a few more coming, and maybe a lot more when cata hits.
8: Same as in the US 3.3.5, normally patches next maintenance

Most of us cannot read chinese also but get by. If there's enough of us again, we will do 10man raids

Well, I'd like to play in Chinese because it could help me learn how to read it... and I'm quite proficient in the location of things from playing the NA version anyway. I have relatives in Hong Kong so I guess I can pay them to send me the game + card. By the way, how much is the game in Taiwan, or can I use the North American version and just edit the client? The 1800 minute card's something around US$5 according to your price.

EDIT: I forgot - is there ventrilio on the Taiwanese servers?

You can use any client on any server as long as its the same version.

If you want I can rar the chinese version and send it you , 20g with english sounds

I suggest you play with english client and get the TW client later

You can use any game chat system you like.

Nah, I'm fine. I can fare well with the Taiwanese version in Chinese. You download that from the regular website, right?

Oh wait, I forgot to ask - is the Taiwanese version like Korea and you don't need a key code and all you need are the minutes to add onto your account?

Oh, that's cool. I'll probably see if I can get my relatives to get me the card once in a while. Thanks a lot!
