Breakfast Topic: How old is old enough for WoW?


I'm just going to put this out there. My daughter has, at a ripe old age of 3-months-old, completed all raiding content through Cataclysm. She's even gone back to Karazhan and smacked down that venerable old instance, just for old time's sake.

What? Oh, how active did she play? Dad had to handle most of the movement for her, and Dad might also have helped her spam the appropriate spells. But, really, is that so much more help than we're forced to give the occasional Raid Finder member? I mean, really, what raid hasn't had to haul along someone drooling on the keyboard?

Okay, I'm sorry for the Raid Finder dig, it was meant to be a joke. So, all this comedy about my 3-month-old raiding aside, how old is old enough to start playing WoW? The Littlest Gray gets read the Collected Works of Chris Metzen as bedtime stories because Daddy needs to stay up on the lore, but she's a special case. What's the bright line for a kid to fire up their first Pandaren?

Because we all know: they're gonna want to play a panda.
