Who Amongst us Plays WoW?
« on: September 19, 2008, 05:23:02 PM »
Unfortunately, I am a very big fan of World of Warcraft... If I could change the habit, I would... lol! I just love the game and the dynamics behind MOST of it... (not all)... But, anywho... My starter questions are: (1) Who Plays WoW? (2) What server and PvP or PvE? (3) What race/class?

I'll go first....

Dalvengyr - PvP
Night Elf Druid (Resto spec)

I played for two years but stopped and have been trying other mmorpg games since. Nothing catches me like WoW did, but I am totally bored / braindead when I've decided to go back in the past after 20 minutes. Also I really don't like the values it promotes, I can expand on some other time that if you don't mind a critical note ;)

I play wow on the Stormrage EU server (mostly horde side) - Troll Priest. PvE mostly at the moment.

I also occasionally whip up Guild Wars, and am currently getting a taster of Warhammer online.

I am a casual gamer though, have phases and play a 2 or 3 nights a week, one or the other for about 2 hours.

My type of gaming tends to be explorer - i love to explore everything, tend to find things and places before I have the quest for them. I mostly raid for social reasons, to help people I know etc.

Played up to level ~56 or something like that, tried a friend's homemade fishing bot, stopped using it, got banned 3 months later, shrugged and moved on. Was fun enough, but never got me really addicted... unlike some of my friends who I hardly saw for at least a year.

I don't really regret not making it to 60, from what I've heard there's way too much grinding after that... as if it wasn't bad enough already :)

I've been quite disenchanted with WoW for quite some time. I play it primarily because a good friend from overseas plays it with me. I've been complaining a lot lately about the tactics blizzard use to downgrade efficiency in the game thereby keeping you playing longer for less of a reward with next to no effort on their part. I would be interested to hear a negative take on WoW from someone else. Please do elaborate.

Eh... I'm pretty sure I didn't :-s

I got a mount and stuff, but don't you get that already at 50 or so? I'm preeeetty sure I only got to 50-something, because my guild was about to take on Molten Core, where you needed to be lvl ~60 with decent gear in order to stand a chance (at least back then), and I wasn't there.

Hmm, maybe you were like level 59, I am pretty sure you got into molten core at some point as I remember you helping your guild killing this

I did make 58, but dunno 59.

I'm pretty sure I never went with them to MC though. I should've remembered that. Unless it was one of those "beer raids", if you get what I mean :-[

just curious, how long it takes to get to that level (50-ish to 60)? ;)

nowadays, maybe a day or 2... They have a promotional "Recruit-a-friend" thing where u and a friend get 300% exp when next to each other for like 90 days or something... well, thats what my friend and I did and I went from 50-60 in like 1 day... it was ridiculous how quick it went... 56->57 took me 14 minutes... U get triple the xp for quests too, so I stockpiled a ton of complete quests and turned them in, in mass and i FLEW through lvls... My current played time on my 67 druid is 5 days 7 hrs total time played... its roughly 2 weeks old... Idk if that gives u an idea?

How lame - sounds like they totally ruined the game.

Then again, it was all about camping and grinding... they could've done better from the start.

I think they have done a semi-good job considering that this effort to push players farther in levels, quicker is only to promote people to buy old versions of the game and upgrade to the expansion. There is another expansion, "Wrath of the Lich King," coming out November 13th, so they are doing these promotional's for marketing only. Blizzard would never actually try to HELP us... lol... What they have ruined though is the arena system at level 70; it's completely uneven and it sounds like the programmer's who come up with the match-making algorithms need to be fired and new one's from DC forums need to be hired... It's sad to see such a great feature like the Arena system be so unbalanced by so many uneven classes... After all, even with my complaints about the Arena system, I still manage to play the arena system competitively for money/contests.
