With the arrival of “the Silly Season” with the last major patch and we now wait on the next expansion, plus I’m kind of a little burnt out on WoW (hey , 11 max level alts, one of each class) and I took the WoW advice to try other MMO’s.
Tried a few, and just could not stomach once again the kill pigs in the hope a liver with a .0001% drop rate would drop so I could finish the quest. If I’m going to do that, I’ll do that in WoW.
Finally tried a MMO that had bad reviews. It was actually a lot of fun and nothing like what all the doom and gloomers were saying in their reviews. Anyway, I finally got a character high enough to do this other MMO’s version of dungeons using their LFG. What a difference, it was Fun. No whinny complaints. Just do your job and have fun. There seemed to be a “all for one, one for all” attitude by the LFG players.
The big difference is there is no way to know your DPS/HPS while in the instance. I just wonder if that would help WoW. Knowing DPS/HPS is a great tool in a MMo, but what if the DPS/HPS data was only limited to target dummies so you could work out rotation/abilities and disabled everywhere else? Maybe this is the direction WoW is heading, work things out on the dummies (remember the raid test dummies?), test it in the proving grounds, have fun in the dungeons and raids.
