    MoP Stale Already...

    1) Log in

    2) Stare at character for 5 minutes

    3) Queue up for daily random heroic

    4) Mindlessly grind dailies

    5) ???

    6) Profit?

    7) Repeat the next day

    It seems as though this is becoming the norm in WoW lately. Same ole stuff, mindless grinds, staring at screen, flying in circles at city hub locations, etc etc. Raids are mindlessly boring, imho. No connection, or feeling of being attached to the lore in some way. Mantid who? Mogu who? Panda who?

    Any of you feel this way?

    Nobody is forcing you to play the game if it's boring to you then don't play it, simple as that.

    The shine is coming off by now, I'm already starting to enjoy the game a lot less. The only thing I look forward is to raid Heart of Fear, but for the rest its just grinding the 1000 VP for the week

    I still have plenty of other games that I enjoy playing trough

    That you just don't care about lore doesn't mean there isn't any. Raids are mindlessly boring? Do you have something killed on heroic, Or at least normal? Or are you one of those... "players" that progress Garalon in LFR?

    that is up to you. there tons of things to do. but looks like you are burned out on WoW. just take a break. and let other people enjoy it.

    and the lore for most peopleaka war3+exp is past. lore is all fresh now. and if you took the time to quest instead of rushing to max lvl they will tell you the lore. who they are. what they do and stuff.

    I haven't done dailies in 2 weeks. I don't know why people feel they are forced to do it.

    "I do something too much, it isn't fun anymore."

    No wayyy.

    I'm loving the new raids. So much fun (besides class imbalance on garalon is a bit annoying). However I do wish there was more to do, I love how they added challenge modes (still trying to get a group together for it) but I wish they added more stuff for us to do. Dailies is the wrong answer, I hope they figure something out and implement it in the game.

    I mean its not like MoP is necessarily a bad game. I think they could have improved it a whole lot more if they took a different direction than panda land, but they did a decent job with it. Its just kinda stale.. not really sure how else to describe it
    It is my humble opinion that TBC was the most entertaining expansion.

    What keeps me going in times like that is to take in the lore and focus on enjoying my character specifically. Also, transmogrifying. Hunting Cata rare spawns could be something, too, such as for a rare pattern or something.

    If you are bored, then don't play. I am loving MoP so far.

    Nope.

    It helps to cycle your dailies. Do different factions different days.

    It's an expansion pack, not a brand spanking new game. It's still World of Warcraft. If you're bored of World of Warcraft as a whole, an expansion pack's not going to magically make you love the game all over again. Perhaps it is time to move on?

    Ah crap. I responded to a Jaylock thread...

    OP needs to get out, or at least out of WoW. if you burn yourself out on something, don't complain about the burnout but reflect upon yourself and find out what you can do different.

    tbh, I nearly burnt myself out on dailies... until I pulled the break and found out: only because they are up every day, I totally don't NEED to do them every day.

    you are past that one already, OP, so you need to get away a bit until you like it again. or maybe not.

    Any of you feel this way?
    1) log in my druid
    2) daily august celestials + cooking mop/cata/LK for chef's hat
    3) 1-2 challenge modes and/or raid
    4) log in my mage
    5) bg, rbg, arena 2s and 3s
    6) log in my priest
    7) quest and xp
    8) re log in my druid
    9) venomhide ravasaur quest
    10) old achievements
    11) log in my bank
    12) make money
    13) profit

    Also, randomly cata achieves (didn't play cata), rare mobs, pandaria treasures, changing my professions every 2-3 days, wild pvp, sha/warband, go solo/duo some random old raids/dungeons, farm guild achieves.

    So much stuff to do.

    I can understand that if you only have one char and do no bg/rbg/arena/raid/challenge (which seems to be your case), then it can be boring. But if you keep yourself out of all the fun, you can only blame yourself

    You had me fooled for a minute because you changed your avatar, but the name is ofc always the same. C'mon man, you have been complaining about how shit WoW is for days. weeks, months, years. What is the point? Just find a different game already and let it go.

    So, in short: the internet.

    If you are really that bored already then try something different. Play a different character, or... gasp... try something other than WoW? There are lots of games out there, maybe you just need a break.

    Isn't that what an MMO is? At least you get something for playing the game by randomly opting to do either dailies, or dungeons, or raid, or pvp, or even just exploring, something you didn't get in expansions prior: you grinded, did dungeons and farmed only so you could raid. They aren't connected any more, you can raid w/o rep grinds and dungeon farms, etc

    Thats simply not true at all. Read the quest dialogues, do the Lorewalker stuff. The Lore is very rich, but don't expect an audiobook to tell you the story without reading it...

    Staring at your character for 5 minutes does sound pretty boring! Sounds like maybe you should take a break and go play something else. That's what I usually do when I get bored with WoW.

    A1: She needs to start making eggs for Easter...
    A2: Drunk and sleeping somewhere.
