    My problem is something like 13 years spent on wow. Repeating all that grind and investment...

    A complete lack of interest.

    With BfA sucking balls I will be back soon as I get my new laptop.

    Mainly because it's not fun. It always felt like a game where you'd open your map and run to the next point. Spend a few minutes climing some walls and open your map again.

    PvP was meh.

    PvE even more meh.

    I have no real guild I am apart of in Guild Wars 2. Also it is time. I do login momentarily when new content comes out so I at least get it for free.

    I spent a lot of time learning to play pvp there. Now after 2 years of break I'll have to do the same again...that's the main reason I don'r start again.

    I just feel like there isn't enough actual end-game content--there aren't that many raids or dungeons and even dungeons get so boring because it's just about people stacking rather than making decent team compositions. Instead, again, it's just stacking. I haven't played since a month into HoT so it might have changed but idk, I used to like the game a lot until I realized there really wasn't much to do aside from the Living World stuff which you can do under an hour and you have to wait again for the next week.

    The open world is, at least in the old world. Heart of Thorns zones ramped up the challenge, and if you're 80 there's challenging content via raids and fractals (you have to work a bit to get to the harder fractals). But largely as with most games, the open world isn't supposed to be super challenging if you're a competent player.

    That's one of the top things I see with new players. If you're looking for direction then not much there. Some people like it because they have the freedom to play where they want, others feel like they are wondering around aimlessly.
    I really can't pinpoint it, maybe it's just a lot of small things that add up.

    I think of the talents and, at least to me, there's no clear path. I start a new character and remember that all resources are shared between them and that somehow makes me not want to play. I'll look at the classes, think I want to play, and having played WoW for 14 years, I go to research everything and I find the class mechanics and it bums me out because I think it looks interesting at face value in the game and it turns out to be needlessly complicated. There's probably more little things. Just can't think of anything else at the moment.

    I'm not knocking the game. I had fun when it came out. It's just when I last tried to play after I quit WoW, all these little things add up for me.
    Just don't reply to me. Please. If you can help it.

    Honestly, you don't need to drill down super deep into the classes to do just fine - unless you're a mix/maxer. I'm bloody awful at the game for the most part and can still get through up to T3 fractals without issue (haven't bothered with T4 yet), and my baby necro is a bloody monster in T1's with exotic gear only. I have only a basic understanding of the classes I play (right now mainly guardian, ranger and necromancer), at best.

    Traits aren't always super straight forward, and stats overall are a bloody mess, but thankfully sites like metabattle have a bunch of builds and guides to help point you in the right direction based off what you want to do. I base most of my builds off of those, but make tweaks here and there to fit my playstyle (my support guardian has some traits moved around to allow me to better use shouts to help fill gaps for some boons, for example).

    As for resources being shared, it's actually a pretty big boon. You can use better geared characters to quickly farm currency needed for stuff on alts, or benefit from getting gold and other shit on alts you can also use on your main.

    And to PACOX's breadcrumbs point - that's what the looking glass folks are mostly for on the maps. They exist to point you towards hearts and activities to get experience while providing some background lore context for the areas. They won't always lead you from zone to zone, but each zone has its level range clearly labeled on the map (and you can still get plenty of XP in low level zones) and it's usually pretty easy to find the zone lines as there's almost always a road leading to them visible on the map.

    Not saying "YOU'RE WRONG" or anything, just hopefully being a bit helpful!

    Yep. This.

    My time invested in WoW pretty much stops me from fully diving into a new MMO, save for a one month or two playthrough. Closest ive got is SWTOR, then GW2. But yeah cant seem to drag myself away from the game ive invested so much time and energy in, and know like the back of my hand haha

    It's kindof insidious if you think about it lol, undermine competition over years of dedication lol.

    I might finally wrest myself free of WoW's talons now though, but if it'll be for FFXIV or GW2 is up in the air.

    I don't know anyone who plays the game. If I could find a nice, friendly guild to level in I'd like to try playing.

    I have a guild (NA). We raid, do guild missions, have discord, been around since launch, all of that. Most of us are lvl 80 but have no level restrictions.
