I just wanted to say Hi!
I read MMO-Champ daily (sometimes twice daily). Never posted on a forum, Never really wanted to. Thought I would today.
Recently started playing again, Some things I found since levelling up after a break since Dragon Soul, Did a couple of LFR's and got to the Dragon boss on 10m.
Since then I started fresh on a new server...
Levelling is fantastic again, THANK YOU FOR CRZ. Levelled a PVP server and although frustrating getting ganked by 90s occasionally (I wouldn't say it was major issue /evilstare dark portal though).
Cata world changes are awesome, I hadn't levelled since TBC and it was a far more fantastic game.
Pandaria AMAZING! I finally dinged 85 and started my journey in the mysterious Pandaland; thinking "ohhh only 5 more to go". By level 87 I was thinking "THIS IS TOO FAST, HOW CAN I COMPLETE EVEN HALF OF THIS IN 3 MORE LEVELS".
Reached90, boredom sets in. Tillers good fun for a fortnight... Dailies good way to distribute things to do for endgame (Don't get me wrong, Its not great -but I don't have a better option) Dominion Offensive/Klaxxi were interesting but whole 90 daily thing lacks any real UMMPH, At least the An'Quiraj was serverwide and felt like you were contributing although my pathetic level 52 handing in bandages felt utterly retarded at the time...
Was pretty much geared for Heroics already, Seems I needn't bother the ilvl is a complete artificial cap, I could blow through most of those dungeons in cata greens, unchallenging, content thrown in our faces like it should mean something.. WHAT THE HELL WAS STORMSTOUT BREWERY ALL ABOUT!!!!1111.... (I completed the zone entirely and it still seems completely and utterly irrelevant)...
Used my available gold I had over 20k from clever auctionhousing (Skinning mainly during levelling and a lucky drop during MOP levelling). Bought some Purples. Joined a MSV (10man normal) blew through content even though I died on almost every encounter due to not having read/researched a single boss and forgetting to install DBM. After that and a few lucky drops in LFR and a couple during my pathetic MSV run, I joined HOF LFR. Mashed buttons for 50 mins and felt like I was just watching static on my TV... Did the other one after that and completed it in backwards order (Sha-water thing-dragon-first bosses) due to stupid queue. Felt like I had little else to do, pet battles amuse me whilst I'm ticking my account down, reading MMOC for the rest.
I know I'm a fully seasoned player, I don't want to play a new game and go through the learning curve. Its fun but new life doesn't permit. I just find WOW completely unchallenging now. At least when I played most TBC/WOTLK/early Cata I felt like some skill was involved. Now I just feel like its a single player game for a week of story with optional extra "endgame" content that feels like some kind of facebook game my wife plays.
Anyway, I still play. I log in get a couple of dailies done, PvP a little still. Say "Hi" to whoever is online.
Anyway.. Pointless thread over, This is my WOW story. What's yours...?
