I have learned to pace myself and at the start got my warrior to 90 since I have been playing him for the last 8 years, I lie again, it would of been 7 and some change when I decided to level a monk.
Once I leveled a monk I never looked back, but getting to 90 lasted on a few long days, but once there he quickly surpassed my warriors gear score and LFR queue time is not an issue when you got a healer that does them with you :-) I did name my monk Ehonda, some will get it and some won't.
I do not do normal raids well, that one time I did I had to fill in for my guild, which is my guild by the way to raid a day and got lucky 2 or 3 drops for me in MV, but outside of that, I got lucky on Sha both the gloves and pants dropped for me, and sitting at 9/10 wisdoms currently.
I have a couple great Tmogs, Rank7 in the brawlers guild <not bragging, but it was my goal so that I could pass an invite to someone else>
Tend to my farm daily, and my monk was going to be my farmer, at first but got boring so I dropped both herbing and mining and went for leatherworking and enchanting. Since my Warrior is a JC and BS, and my other warrior that is 87 and is leveling up soley by picking herbs and mining, he will be my farmer eventually, (cata was easier to do what i am trying to do with this guy)
That being said I have alot to do, i started my dailies late I acutally did not even start dailies until I wanna say since 5.1 only because I was still into Diablo 3 and by then it kinda wore off, and was able to dedicated some more hours into wow.
Now my wife on the other hand has 9 - 90's all 90's have the 16 plot farms, her others are 88 and 85 right now. And they are all...you guessed it Priests every single one of them, how quirky is that. And all disc priests, she refuses to dps I keep saying you know you do have a shadow spec!!
Got bored/unsubbed before getting revered with the golden lotus...I don't like the way we are "forced" into doing dailies to keep up. and those dailies aren't fun...
Top 5 dps in LFR .
On to the point of this thread, no I don't find MoP fun anymore. I log to raid 2x a week and every morning to do 1 daily. Thats it.
Then again, thats fun enough for me to keep paying so...
I thought I would give MoP a try but it didn't last very long. I quit the very first week. It had been a long time coming since after Cata was released.
However, I had like 2 months of game time on my account, so I logged in during the holidays to see if anything has changed. In fact its the same crap over again and PVP is also a complete CC/Stun fest.
I gave it 2 days and I am glad I can walk from it today. Sure the game was good in its hey day but its a complete money grab for Blizzard right now. I mean they had all this hype for scenarios, I did the Theramore one the very first time and it was quite underwhelming.
Pet battles again ain't very engaging. Its probably cause I ain't a fan of turn based games. LFR was probably one of the worst features yet to be implemented regardless of its objective so I will not comment.
I unsubbed aswell. Don´t like the rotation for Destru Locks at all. Really boring to play now.....
Mope... i get it. hah.
Wow <3 Korra<3 Giants<3
Although I'm kinda bored at times I still find this expansion interesting. My guild is close to killing Sha of Fear normal though and then we will try HC modes which will be fun for sure since I loved most of the raid encounters in t14. Also, another way to spend my time on is to gear up my warlock alt, I really want to try destro soon and I love Demo (I hate affli haha) and warlock island in 5.2! We have a few months ahead of us for 5.2 but I think I can handle it ^_^
So... the expansion is still fun for me!
I think it's probably the best expansion yet. Design is amazing, boss mechanics are fun and varied, and there's TONS of stuff one can do (no, not just dailies).
Just make sure you don't burn out on doing too many dailies. I took the slow approach, I only bought 2 pieces of gear from Klaxxi and that was it, then I took it slow... I'm currently Exalted with Golden Lotus and Operation Shieldwall only.
I do maybe one set of dailies a day *at most*.
Didn't matter at all for my gearing process, sure I could have had more gear faster, but I still got everything I wanted as a raid drop pretty fast too. There's 16 bosses so lots of opportunities for gear to drop.
Now I don't even need to do the dailies anymore, I just do it slowly because I want to be Exalted with everyone eventually and get some vanity items. Just for fun and not for gear. That's really what the dailies should be about - getting achievements and fun stuff. Maybe they should disconnect valor point gear from reputation altogether.
So... yeah. Just make sure you don't burn yourself out with all those dailies. It's not necessary, not even if you think it is. You can build up your item level to the required or desired level purely by doing 5man dungeons, LFR and raiding itself.
I am in love with this expansion still. I am having as much fun as I had back during some of the BC/WotLK days. Still not as in love with WoW as I was forever ago, and some days I feel I put too much time in this expansion, but that is more of a compliment than a take away. There is simply too much to do, that there isn't enough time in the week. Currently I run all kinds of older raids, soloed Glory of the Raider last week, and have done half of ICC/Ulduar solo. I'm hoping to get some tank gear and try some Cata stuff. I also just started leveling a warrior. I love the way PVP works, I enjoy the LFR system so that I don't have to cater a schedule around the game, and I just start pet battling yesterday and it is pretty awesome. In Cata I stood around in Org without anything to do most times. In Mists I rarely have a time where there isn't something I could be doing. I love all the new mounts available, I only need to get exalted with August Celestials to be done with Mists reputations, then try and keep farming earlier expansion mounts.
Unsubbed during cataclysm.
I had always thought I'd pick up WOW again with the next expansion (MOP) and how everything kinda resets with the kick off of leveling again.
Tried the MOP beta thinking it would stir me back and it was pretty bad. It never got interesting, so my $15 a month went elsewhere.
Mop was just not fun and thats from the very start. No way I was spending money per month on it after that in the hopes it would get better.
I played WOW for something like 7 years so I still keep track of it but I'm thankful I'm not spending money on it or with blizzard these days given how there games are turning out. (for me anyway Mop and D3 were quite terrible and SC2 wasn't enough of an upgrade)
So I'm happy buying other games for now.

Yes...raiding with friends in a 25m guild without elitist douchebags. Last time I was able to do this was in TBC.
I do my farming, my Tillers dailies, my Op Shieldwall dailies, run around exploring for all the fun gimmicky little flavor stuff they put in Pandaria (especially the lore objects!), and do scenarios if I start getting burned on dailies. Somehow, among all that I find time to RP for a few hours.
The sheer fact that we have people being so asinine as to split hairs over the exact definition of content is a sign that there isn't any worth discussing for non-raiders.
I think it's about time we stopped scapegoating each other and started demanding better from the devs.
