OP  9/14/12 2:54:17 PM#1

Lately I took advantage of the 7 day return. I couldn't tolerate it. It had been a couple years since I logged in last.

 

While wandering around sparked mad nostalgia, it was impossible for me to take the out-dated game seriously anymore. Everything... everything... was like Fisher Price brand from my childhood or like tinkertoys. I used to like the game ok...years ago. Now everything was silly, repetitive and stale. I made my warlock's pets talk a little, did the dungeon finder some, walked the banks of Stranglethorn and Zangarmarsh....

 

I played WoW tons in vanilla, especially when (after?) EQ2 broke their game in the first few months "to compete", and revisited for expacs. Now I think it's better left in the past. I remember the appeal, but I can't do it anymore. Good luck with Pandaria.

Fisher price.  Classic.  A little harsh though.

I've become dependent upon spell check. My apologies for stupid grammatical errors.

I did the same thing, except I bought the Cata xpac to run around with my son on his server. I found the leveling starting at level 1 OK. There were enough changes that it was interesting to run around and see what changed. Then I tried to run around the level 80 areas. I tried both the Mt. Hyjal and whatever the underwater areas were and I just couldn't do it. The quests weren't that different from the starter quests (in some ways the starter quests were much better) and the zones were so restrictive...it was like running around in a tiny room trying to do stuff. I just couldn't do it. Unless I can get past that level 80 wall, that's it. I'll never pick up another xpac for WoW, no matter how cool I think Kung Fu Pandas are.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

Also took advantage of the 7 days free, logged in, got a few 'hey!' off old guildies and started to see what had changed. 30 seconds later I saw the 'talent twig' said "screw this, im not a retard" and logged off again.

The only way to truly return to WoW is to start from scratch.

Hop on your max levelled toon is never a "fun" way to return :j

It's a combination of Nightingale Armor with the Mod Truebound Deadric Armors

You'd better at least buy yourself a full set of enchanted BoAs if you are going to be taken seriously...especially in dungeons.

Recently started playing SWTOR. I am posting updates to my experience in this thread:

What are you talking about? When I leveled new toons I RARELY ran into twinked levelers. Maybe 1 other person had full BoA, usually it was people in random gear from quests and dungeons.

Actually talent system is much better for most classes.. However I do understand the joy you guys must have had putting that 1 point every level into 1% crit.

I prefer the intricacies rather than being spoon fed.

I actually stupidly paid to come back after listening to one of  my mates, one of the few still playing it. Logged it tried to do some questing, pvp etc. Logged out after about an hour total. Tried to come back so many times after quitting originally in 2007, had been playing since 2005. The game has become an abomination, and will destroy itself, that is my prophecy :) but yea don't take it too seriously. All I know for sure is, the game is dead to me.

It already felt like fisher price to me when it was only just launched. No game had me return to my previous game (FFXI) and then move on (LOTRO) as fast as vanilla WoW did.

Right.. because choosing an ability that does something over another is much easier to figure than 1% crit over reduced fall damage.

I went back to WoW at the start of the year (just after SWTOR failed).

Last time I played was right before the sunwell patch during TBC.

Started a new character, Worgen Warrior. 

It was cool seeing what Blizzard did to Azeroth but overall the game is just bland.

I go numb after awhile when i just continually stack quests in my log, all of that running to waypoints then back tracking it becomes tedious.

Dungeons never change, its always this stressful experience. Stressful tanking for newbs, healing for newbs and with everyone flashing Dps meters even that has become this epeen competitive thing players try to hang over you every run.

I got to around level 58, saw all the new Azeroth content then hit that TBC leveling wall. THankfully my brother (who had a 85) dragged me through instances to get me into the Cata 80-85 content. 

The zones looked nice but it was still just as tedious... its as if the content simply felt in the way. 

Sadly i quit by the time i got to level 84. My return to WoW lasted 3 months with on and off casual playing. 

Shortly after my brother quit also.

I agree! Blizzard has revamped a lot of areas, quests, and dungeons. They really are more fun now. I started fresh on a new server after taking a month break. I've been helping friends level their guild and we're already level 30ish running the revamped Scarlet Monastery.

WoW is shit, but the new talent system is not the reason why it's shit.

 

If you were a player of any consequence, you would know that the 'talent trees' never promoted actual build variation because there was one right path and thousands of terrible paths.  You either picked up the PvP talents (and sacrificed PvE sustainability) or picked up the PvE talents (and sacrificed the PvP utility).  If you did both in some weird hybrid and tried to go 'Look at me, I'm so unique!', an addon pinged you about your build and told you and your four friends that you were straight autistic - and unfortunately, that was true.

 

The choice was simple.  "Will I spec correctly, optimizing my character's performance and making them enjoyable to play, or randomly pick talents as I drool on my keyboard, laughing HUEHUEHUEHUEHUE as I do 4 dps?"

 

The new system has less shiny buttons to press as you get each level, but the buttons are actually grouped with similar abilities and are now relevant.  There was pretty much no reason for a raider to pick up a silence or immobilize talent barring certain encounters or gimmicks, especially over the talent that increases their critical chance by 5% or their off-hand autoattack damage by 50%.  In this system, CC talents are grouped with each other so your choice of CC doesn't make you deal less damage.

 

There's a lot of other reasons that WoW is a terrible game, but the talent system is not one of them.
