Jesus, the worst times for you where the best times for me in WoW lol. Quel'thalas Island was so epic, the w-pvp back then is something i will never forget.i thought bout coming back after ~3 month break - but
If its one thing i hate about WoW its "daily quests".
You can send me running the same dungeon over and over - for gear, rep, points, fun, whatever. I never had a negative thought about tbc while running non-hcs for rep to get the heroic-key (and learning to play my class in a not-so-punitive-world); i remember doing the "3 mark mecha run", running utgarde keep for over one month on a daily basis for my tanking-sword. I like dungeons + raids (i prefer the slight more difficult ones instead of the wotlk-zergfests)
Worst time in WoW? Fireland-Dailys (for gear + acvs), TolBarad-Dailys (for tank-trinket with 4 chars), Shattered Sun dailys, ogrilla a.s.o. not to forget you HAVE to quest 2/3 of deepholme to get neutral with therazane with every non-inscriptioneer-toon.
They removed the "you have to"-daily dungeon thingy long ago - great move. But then introduce dailys for gear again?
I'm not a big fan of questing - sure, leveling=questing and that's ok - but questing at maxlevel? nah... that's what alts are for
Tenor was, they want players to have the decision what they want to do - but you don't have it. You "have" to do dungeons till you have your set complete and you HAVE to do your dailys. Dungeons afterwards give next-to-zero award AND are just a simple zergfest.
So i assume, mop is the worst that could happen for me and i should not come back
p.s.: tell me the difference in "5 people running silent through a dungeon" and "5-10 people gathering daily-quest-items without communicating" other then "one is instanced, one is in open world". (playing on a pve-server, so pvp+ganking is not a valid reason for me)
