I feel like the XP buff isnt enough for the fresh experience to feel any different from the classic era version considering it only adds about 15% overall speed.

    For retail, the issues are mostly to do with there not being much to do for a casual aside from LFR once a week and repeatedly doing the same few max level dungeons. I am not a mount or xmog collector since I find the grind to be extremely not fun, unrewarding and time consuming considering the world is massive and travelling to old raids takes a ton of time, one shotting everything for mogs/mounts is just not something I am able to do anymore, might have been OK for a few months initally but it gets old quickly and feels bad since ur all alone.

    I feel like the devs are not thinking outside of the box of "current expansion only" content and are ignoring how the rest of the game can be turned into something much more fun, social and rewarding than it currently is.
    Not active enough? Obsidian Edge is literally packed 24/7. Every single zone.

    A hobby rewards you for your time and investment. Whether thats in pure pleasure, intangible benefits such as mental/physical engagement, etc...

    Honestly gaming has never been much of a hobby, its more of a pure time waster. Its like saying going out to party is a hobby. At least with parties you gain actual experiences, not short fleeting experiences that are gone the second another short fleeting artificial experience comes along.

    I’ll admit I forgot what it was like way back when. Gave in and thought I’d try tbc classic, made a warlock and was out of mana in three shadowbolts. Had to stab that boar to death

Back when I was younger that stuff was awesome cause it just meant "more fun", but I don't find it fun anymore so it's just "more tedium" instead now.
    Damn, I think that's actually true for me too and part of the reason I've gone off WoW. I had more fun in a recent Mass Effect trilogy playthrough than I've had for ages in WoW. Great story, great characters, fun gameplay and almost devoid of anything that feels like it's just been put in to waste my time (Mako missions can piss off though). Thinking about logging into WoW and making all those various bars fill up bit by bit makes me feel mildly nauseous.

    Now a days? It's been like this since WOTLK.
