    My hunter and especially my mage are starting to get to be about as geared as I'm going to get them. I still have to finish my hunters legendary cloak and I have a few alts who I still want to finish getting full grievous on. After that, I'm probably just going to farm gold for a bit and I keep telling myself to go for Loremaster finally but I'm not sure what character I want to do it on or if I should make a fresh character and do it that way. I think I'll be able to keep myself pretty busy until early-mid February though, which I think the beta will be on out by then.

    Yeah - a healthy decision, because you must have been playing an unhealthy amount.

    Not sure what exactly you are trying to tell us? Imagine everyone who takes a break makes a topic about it. Happy 2014.
    For people actually doing achievs it's not impressive nor hard to get to 18000 on a long time main.

    To the OP, get over yourself. Nobody gives a flying shit that your taking a break. I quit 8 months ago, heck I've even taken 4 breaks in total and not 1 time did I feel the need to draw attention to myself for taking said break.

    That said, I hope you enjoy wathever your new hobby is and I wish you all a happy newyear!

    Started about 10 mos into MoP, so there is a lot for me to do. But regardless, this whole 'taking too long' BS. I will never get the special ADHD mentality of gamers. Seriously, wtf. Do something else and come back when it's ready. There are next gen drugs up these days for ADHD.

    I just resubbed from a 1 month vacation from WoW. Mainly to help some friends with some things. I share the same sentiment that alot of people are putting out there right now. If I'm online, I'm usually helping my friends with something or idling in Shrine. Sad as it is.

    That's how I felt about Blizzard for years, then I waited 10 years for Diablo 3.

    Blizzcon announcement meant also that the xpac is approaching. How is it any different? You already know it's coming.

    80%+ of the population won't go anywhere no matter how long Blizzard takes. most of the other 20% will eventually come back anyway.

    TL;DR: blizz will do what they want/needs to be done to release a good expansion.

    SWTOR, Rift, and GW2 all put out content far faster than Blizzard. I don't play Rift or GW2, but imo SWTOR's content is quite a bit better than Blizzard's lately.

    So you are saying that the 5 million + that have quit WoW will eventually be back?
    WoW having more subs than SWTOR is the same thing as Justin Bieber having more youtube plays than Tupac. Just because its more popular doesn't mean its good.

    But as they've said, the balancing bit really isn't all that time consuming. It's the designing part that takes ages and then testing it's not broken - so if a spell says you do a kick for X damage +%Y, it actually does that rather than a punch for your health value. Tweaking numbers and coefficients so that they are in line is easy but if its doing something completely different or it causes a server crash or a chicken in westfall to double in size... it's noticing and fixing those that takes time and effort.

    Asctivision Blizz investors would tend to disagree. It will be out when they start clamoring for more returns (dividends/value) on their money. While I used to completely agree with you, Activision sort of has the "EA Effect" on Blizzard, unfortunately.

    And you're entitled to your opinion entirely, but the success of all 3 of those games says that a lot of people disagree with you. SWTOR would've died if it didn't go F2P with microtransactions, Rifts population plummeted and GW2 did the same after initial hype. Sure, WoW's population dropped heavily too but it's still dropped to a massive number. Those games failed heavily after what, a year? WoW is at like 8-9 years now and still going incredibly strong.

    No other company maintaining and creating content for an MMORPG has managed to put out content similar in quality to blizzard so it's a moot point really

    "Quality" suuuuuuuuuuuuuure.

    I would do the same in your position. Also, i agree, it is taking way to long.

    You are welcome to like WoW better than SWTOR if you wish, but to say it failed is just moronic.

End game progression has just become grind timeless isle, do lfr, do flex, do normal. There needs to be something more next expansion.
    Completely agree with this. They need to up their game. I think they will.

    I'm sorry but "I Quit" threads aren't allowed here. This is more appropriate for a blog than a discussion forum.
