Rudimentary creatures of blood and flesh. You touch my mind, fumbling in ignorance, incapable of understanding.
You exist because we allow it, and you will end because we demand it.

After playing wow since Vanilla I recently quit wow. Only reason why I logon now is to talk with friends before my time expires(did a yr sub for D3). I invested all of my spare time the whole time. I feel that I will never be back for a few reasons. A huge reason why I quit is because all my friends left. I know they will never come back, and its boring without them. The best time I had in wow was working on the Scarab Lord quest chain(which I did get the mount) with all my friends. We spent days farming for that quest-chain(about 6 of us, eventually 4 of us would get the mount/title thanks glitchy patch before wotlk). Another reason why I will never come back is I miss vanilla and even bc days. When gear meant something, you had to group with people to do almost anything. Now you have lfr, and lfg heroics. The last issue I see with this game is the under pop servers. My original server used to be medium-high, now it is low. At the peak this server had 10+ 25m guilds doing raids(bc on). Now there is only two 10m guilds and horde do not even exist on this server.
I found this xpac to be good at first but after awhile I found rl to be more exciting.
As for talents and glyphs, another lame job... I can't stop hating it, i can't tunne anything, i can't even play the way i have fun... And i'm not paying to play the way they think i might have fun, that is granted for sure.
Raids are another issue, how is raiding once a week better then raiding twice like in wrath??
I don't think I'd be back to WoW or MMOs regardless. Between RuneScape, WoW and Rift, it was enough grind to last me a very long time. I've switched to FPS gaming for my full time online gaming stuff since I can join a team, group up for a few matches for shits and giggles, and log off whenever I'd like. I was a major PvE guy in WoW and it got to the point where I really couldn't be bothered to gear up anymore or do dailies for currency or anything so I just quit. I feel pretty bad about not telling my guild that I had quit but I had already uninstalled the game without thinking. xD
If Blizzard would release a BC server, I would sub for a min of a year at least.
I quit for almost a year between early Dragon Soul and MoP launch.
I quit because Dragon Soul was shocking and also due to a Oceanic 2nd 25M raiding schedule starting to work less and less with my fulltime job + life.
I came back because I decided that MoP was worth it to me as a PVE player, rolled a brand new Pandaren monk and spent 4 weeks getting it to 90, and eventually found a new guild through pugging which raids 10 man 3 hours 2 nights a week, much better than the 5+ hours 4+ nights a week I was doing before I quit. Loving being back, loving my new class and loving the content that Blizz has given us so far.
Eh, WoW is a bit too far gone imo. Now that I'm out I loathe the thought of going back in. It's just too much work. They tried to tempt me with a 7 day trial and I just imagined that I'd spend that entire time grinding like crazy, and by the end of that week my DPS would still be below average.
