    Being a questing nerd for WoW lore... I found what they did with Cataclysm pretty amazing - it was the endgame content that was horrid. I loved questing in all of the renewed zones pretty much (completed almost all of them) and then all of the new zones except for Uldum... too much sand.

    Only just hit 51 last night and while I agree that the experience required to get there was vast, I'm not really complaining about that. Definitely going to take my time with it and just play the game. I came back after a year to play so I'm not decked out in any sort of raid gear (one piece of T1). For me, it does feel akin to TBC. Not AS awe-inspiring as when I first walked into HFP, but it's definitely close and having just reached Tempest Bay, I'm definitely looking forward to getting my raid on with this expansion (much like how I avoided it in Vanilla WoW, but jumped in in TBC).

    All in all, very much enjoying it...and the Harbinger soul .

    I'm very impressed! The content so far is awesome! The only complaint I have so far is that the leveling seems kinda.. Slow..
    Oh boy it will take long time for a casual player like me to hit 60, but it doesn't really matter since I'm having lot's of fun leveling!
    I wouldn't mind if they reduced the experience needed a little bit thou, but I bet alot of other people would be against that idea..

    Hit 51 last night, haven't played since the launch of the game and I am impressed with the changes that has happened while I was away and the additions with the new xpac.

    Well since the engine is based off the same game, this expansion reminds me of Trials of Atlantis from Daoc. But damn leveling is time consuming when you're going at it solo. I just dinged 52 so I'll try the new dungeon at the proper level tonight.

    Seratal and carnage quests. Way, way, way too many carnage quests in the starting 1/4 of the zone. I could do with less and more storyline quests. But the immersive feel of the expansion is amazing. And my FPS went up 10-15 on average. I also switched my laptop from low quality to normal textures. I went from 19 fps pre expansion to 34 post and about 18fps in normal quality. So the engine is taking advantage of the newer hardware.

    But from what Ive read, I have come to the opinion that the slow leveling has something to do with the amount of leveling options. Trion probably doesnt want people to level through the content so fast that they miss all of the hard work they put into the game. Something that Blizzard, I think, has always regretted.

    Sometimes I feel bad for Blizzard. They spend a lot of time and effort, but all their players just want to blast to endgame. Then they complain that there isnt enough. The only time I had to agree was in Cata, but all the other expansions had tons of content in the leveling process. Cant say much for MoP, got bored after hitting 86. Not the games fault, Im just done with WoW and thought a expac would change my mind.
    You can get some great EXP doing daily random daily PVP as well. I only tried once and lost but a couple guildmates have been leveling off that.

    Outside of Atrius the expansion has been overwhelming.

    I can say i havent gotten it, but not for lack of trying. SL came out at a good time for me as im frankly getting sick and tired of wiping on stone guard with my guild, 54 times so far, and dealing with struggle of capping valor every week when i play a maximum of 2 days per week. There seems to be no end of it in sight to either issue so ive pretty much lost interest.

    But when i decided i was going to pick up a game today i let myself have several choices in which i weighed the pros and cons carefully several days beforehand:

    Going back to ultima online for a month to visit
    Picking up skyrim
    Buying SL and playing rift for a while till wow nerfs msv
    Picking up windows 7 so my guild wars 2 stops crashing due to memory issues with my 32 bit windows xp

    I did alot of reading about SL both on the offical forums, these forums, and watching twitchtv. And i just couldnt see myself going back for now, the 2 things im interested in rift are pvp and dimensions. From what ive seen conquest has been taken out for the time being, there are also some other pvp problems that ive heard about but yet to see proof of. Mainly though i loved conquest and without that being in the game until later that was one con towards sl.

    Dimensions from what ive read have several issues such as price and the green curtain preventing people from looking into the outside world. The cost of dimensions to me is very prohibitive because when i play rift i hardly do anything else but pvp with some experts mixed in, which nets me very little money. And when i was thinking of dimensions i was thinking of a phased area that was seamless like in wow with their little "farmville" area. If there is a green curtain that prevents you from seeing the outside world it really hurts the value that i had placed in it.

    In the end i went with skyrim as to me it was the better option for now.

    I do look forward to subbing again to rift but unfortunately for now due to being cash strapped and time limited i had to pick something else . Rift itself is an amazing game and i really think its underrated, but i thought i might offer insight on how i reached my decision in not purchasing rift. That way maybe people who do play rift right now can understand some of the reasons why people just arnt picking SL up like most (including myself) thought would happen.

    Skyrim is a game I would honestly still say is worth it - sick game, lots of fun. Insanely gorgeous views, even though "omg lol it's a virtual world, get over yourself nerd."

    Maybe give Rift: SL a couple months and see how it is. I was considering MoP, was going to give it a couple months, but I already know it's not happening. Partly because of old WoW friends already quitting out of boredom and SL is just too good. :P Not to mention all the issues MoP seems to have spawned from valor and dailies, to others.

    Well despite me not liking traditional mmos that much, SL has already lasted longer than MoP for me.

    I don't really like "leveling". Would be happy to do all this "level up" content at a slow pace some other time. Forcing me to go through it now [&slowly], when I am primarily interested in raiding and the full extent of my Paladin/Vk build-- pretty annoying.

    It's pretty artificial too. Just a time sink/barrier.

    Definately see myself subbing again, i actually pre-ordered rift and payed the full price for it at launch on purpose. I wanted to support what i think is an amazing company. I plan on supporting them again but right now that depends on what blizz decides to do about the valor/rep situation cause i was actually enjoying myself in wow.(and i havent enjoyed myself in wow this much since probably late BC, but how they handle the valor and gating of content is what decides if i will continue to sub)

    I agree with this. Skyrim is awesome. Definitely one of my most favourite games.

    As for dimensions, this sh*t is going to be huuuuuge. I didn't actually comprehend how much extra there is to do when feeling like doing something else.
    Being able to earn badges to buy things for the house, being able to craft things for the house. Women are going to frigging love this.

    Ok, I love it too.

    ANd the upgrade-able gear! Wow. Awesome idea.

    I love how you caught people before anyone hounded you for the almost sexist comment, good move, Wocky. :P

    Yeah, anyone who likes to build, decorate, that type of stuff, will surely love Dimensions. Minecraft with decent graphics and ability to tell what something actually is... imo.

    He He.

    Well, I was gob-smacked by it. When I heard them say "player housing", I thought "yeah, okay...big deal" and then when I got to Tempest Bay and saw just how many vendors, recipes for crafting there are, artifact rewards (Rift's form of archaeology for you wow guys) the guys in guild raving about it.

    Me too! Haha can't wait to play this expansion, but have to finish school first . Glad to see most people are enjoying it though! Was thinking of subbing to SWTOR again, but then I saw that gamersgate had SL for $25 so I can't wait to pick it up! (going to wait until cyber Monday to see if there are any better deals).
