OP  1/06/14 12:44:02 AM#1

Recently i came back to WoW, made a new account got recruited and got to level 60 as a druid in about 15 hours played. Already making the decision to leave, this time for good. I've played since very late vanilla and then on and off throughout tbc, and wotlk. Played cata for a month following its release and left then only to come back recently this past summer for panda land and left after 3 weeks once i got a 90 and fully pvp geared, i just lost interest in the game quick, its lost its magic, yet it still has that nostalgia that keeps me coming back, though this time i've learned the old WoW that has left me with so many memories is long gone. There is no longer that nice feeling of challenge but ease at the same time and actually being excited about the rewards that took effort to acquire.

Hoping for that new gem of an mmo on the horizon to come along, but who knows when that will be, maybe blizzards new mmo (probably to be honest)  Guild wars 2 was the closest thing to a solid mmo recently albeit a huge themepark that lacked endgame and did a few things wrong in the form of making the world feel way too instanced and having you teleport 90% of the time for travel. Come to think of it i may play guild wars 2 again casually whenever i need a bit of an mmo fix :)

You averaged a level every 15 minutes...  Maybe you need to slow down some.

I just have the need for speed ;) lol but seriously its because RAF bonus is huge and i was just tanking instances the whole way. Besides, i've done the leveling thing so many times before and i dont really find it all too enjoyiable when compared to activities at max level. Still within those 15 hours i realized the end was going to be the same as before and i lost motivation to play

 

EDIT: Its fine though, i don't really feel bad about not wanting to play it any longer, its a good thing more than it is bad. I'm 20 now and my priorities lie in going to school, job, and those two are really the big ones. WoW is a distraction to all that and a huge timesink that could hold me back from those responsibilities

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

I have been around since release and i still enjoy the game because i accepted it for what it was a long time go and also became a casual player after BC. I don't go chasing the best gear, i don't run top tier raids i just use that game as a form of entertainment in my downtime and that is how i have managed to keep up my interest.

Being around as long as i have and being in the same guild now for a few years i see people coming back time after time expecting to get something different from it, but they burn through the content and fade away again until the next significant patch or expansion. I think with pandaria and now with Warlords they are producing content that can hold the interest a little longer, but at the end of the day where there is finite content there will always be an end for those that reach for and achieve that end point.

It must be Thursday, i never could get the hang of Thursdays.

This is the only attitude that works on the long run..

If you run fast paced trough any games content, sooner or later you are going to burn out and leave. The idea behind WoW is to have progression and instant rewards for anything you do... but if thats all you want from the game, its going to hurt in the long run.. But if you make sure to have fun while progressing and getting your rewards, its actually the best gaming genre there is.

 

I have this attitude in any game i play these days, and it works quite well, instead of pl+aying less, it has me playing more again.

Yes...  because he must use several bonusses to get in 15 hours from 1 to 60

On top of that there are NPC that you pay 10 gold and your level is frozen so you can finish the great solo stories (which none ever play right now after reaching level 15)  

 

On top of that, between dungeons, take time to talk with other people, after all MMos are a social thing..

This is so true. lol

You gotta avoid all XP gaining activities so that it will be slow. :D

This is actually a very good post, i never looked at it that way, perhaps i shall begin to do so. WoW is a very easy game though there is such a huge amount of content where if one chooses to speed through it as fast as possible will get tired of it quick and stop playing

I usually stay in Azeroth for about six to eight months for each expansion. It's a great game (the pvp is, by far, the best part). It's great to revisit the old game, the old-school battlegrounds, see old friends and make new ones from all over the world. The best part of the WoW experience that I've had over the passed ten years has been the friends I've made, from Mexico to Japan (I play out of South Korea). That alone has been worth every nickle. Looking forward to seeing Az again soon.

I played during Vanilla. I took a Nelf Rogue to 60 and raided Molten Core. My guild was one of the first to take down Rags back in the day although the night we banged Lucy was by far our most exciting as he was the first real raid boss we encountered. Shortly afterward, my life took me away from the game and I didn't really play at all again until Sunwell was out for TBC. I ran an Orc Warlock up to level 68 on a dead, dead realm and was disenchanted with arenas and the structure of the current endgame to the extent that I stopped playing. I didn't intend for it to be forever...but it basically was. 

I just came back to the game last week. Here I am leveling a Troll Priest (I always pick the best race/class combo I can put together) and I'm seeing how things go. As I explained in my other thread up here: I haven't played long enough to see how I like the game today. TBC was where I had my nostalgic heartbreak moments. Now? I'm 31 years old and a different person than when I last played this game and between the fact that there's 90 levels to come climb and cross realm play - I'm enjoying it so far. We'll see how long I stick around. 

What I definitely don't like is this "free level 90" garbage that's coming with WoD. WoD actually has me extremely intrigued other than that little tidbit.

WoW is a lot more enjoyable and fun if you leave the Heirloom gear in the bank, skip the chain-running of dungeons, and actually quest out in the world, do some gathering/crafting, some random open world PvP, pay attention to the story and the quests, etc.

Far, far too easy to burn out on WoW (again) if you just chain dungeons or PvP matches. So much more to do in the game.

Best way to play WoW -- get off the gear rollercoaster.

 

Then things are seen for it's worth. I enjoy the game much better when not raiding nor PvP grinding (but still love thwarting Hordies when they come to town), as then the game is about hanging out and chilling, not fighting crazed looters!

Except when you're a returning player who may have leveled for the nth time.

 

After seeing the same thing over and over and over, yeah, power leveling is welcomed!

 

Power leveling to 90 for returnees: Full BoA gear and do every dungeon quest you can get (most XP while leveling other than in dungeon groups -- BGs were seriously nerfed so not a leveling option anymore). If you have the 300% MoP XP token (it's account bound), fill your quest log with the most XP quests (from dungeons, for example) you can find and turn them all in at once near a quest hub (best at level 88) do all of the quests nearby, as the token lasts only 1hr -- Dread Wastes and Klaxxi stuff is a good place for it. Rest at level 88 for the rested XP and 300% if possible for max gain (those last 2 levels are a PITA to get through without rested XP and/or token).

I completely agree.  Like most things in life, things change.  Those who can't deal with the change usually just bash the game.

Instead of stopping level growth.  Just roll an alt and go through the content you didn't on this toon.

Different story for me but kind of same outcome. Didn't even bother about serious raiding only to tick off afew achievments. Guild raids were alright since it was a casual guild I was in but nothing beats stiring up all the LFR people by pretending it was my first raid. Popcorn and major lulz.

This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

I can't believe someone skipped most content and just power leveled via chain running dungeons and got bored. Crazy!!
