I've been wondering what the big hype is with this game, but I son't want to spend any money to buy it. Is there some sort of free trial that I can use to get the software and log in, just to try it out for a bit?

Check it out... and my play on my server of course! Don't really judge it by the free trial as I hear it's craaaaapy, lots of restrictions and such.

This is what I found

The following restrictions are placed on all Classic Trial Accounts:

* A level cap of 20.
* A maximum of 10 gold.
* Trade skills are capped at 100 ranks.
* Inability to trade via the auction house, mailbox, or player-to-player.
* In-Game public chat channels will be unavailable. (Players will still be able to communicate using say, party, or whispers).
* Characters will be unable to create or join existing guilds.
* Accounts will no longer be able to whisper other players unless they have been added to those players' friends lists or have received a whisper from them first.
* Characters will not be able to invite or join parties with other players above level 20.
* Voice Chat is disabled on trial accounts.
* Realms with login queues will give priority to customers with retail accounts.
* Will not be eligible for any Character Transfer service.

The reason for all these restrictions is Gold Seller sites like to make a character on a trail account and spam the hell out of everyone.

Pretty much they are limited to just running to the auction house in Stormwind or Ironforge or Ogrimmar and spamming in /say or /yell. They instantly get reported by everyone there, but they don't care. They just get another 10-day trial key and repeat.

It does kind of suck to have such a crippled version of the game, but Blizzard has to enforce the rules somehow.

I do recommend a PvE server if you want to play casually. It's alot easier to get stuff done when you aren't being ganked every 5 seconds, and PvE is easier to level on, for the above reason and others.

Won't really matter what server type he plays on with a trial account. You can't get above level 20 and the PvP zones start at about 20 (minus the Humans (Lakeshire is 17+, but PvP enabled)).
