Then get the best you can as the game evolved from an excellent difficult to play game, that could be played well on a basic system, to a game that requires top quality hardware. The reality is the retail game, the one with all the expansions, is made too easy to play and too pretty which makes the game full of eye candy that eats system capacity.
She'll be on the latest version. Not WoW classic.
Hey thanks, I'll look into it. I wonder if the price will drop on friday.
Which version of world of warfcraft does she want to play? There is the 'new' version which is actually the original 'vanilla' version - now called Classic. This requires a lower spec (ignore what the minimum spec is posted on Blizzards site, I play this quite happily on an old i3 laptop). If she wants to play the 'old' full game, she will need a higher spec system, with a dedicated graphics card. I play this on my i3, but in populated areas it gets very choppy and that's on low graphics settings.
