I like a lot of vanilla gamers quit after Cataclysm, the game just got too silly, Mists did reignite my love for the game, but maybe I've just been away too long to enjoy it or maybe I've outgrown it, who knows

The new direction Blizzard is going with Mists isn't working for me. It's not a "take my ball and go home" situation, I just wasn't really having much fun in October. Combine "not fun" October with a busy real-life in November and then Christmas (and finals):it just makes sense to not play for a couple of months.

I might give it a go again in January - I sort of want to make one more "how to UI series" but the fun-per-dollar of warcraft just isn't justified for me right now.

I hear ya. I've been strictly playing only on raid nights for my guild just so I don't leave them hanging. None of the raids have the lore behind them that interests me.

Closed my account last month. Did not play since october i think.

All the people i played with don't play anymore. And i just don't feel like finding a new good group again. I sorta like mist but not enough for that. I just don't like the raids enough. Cata post fireland nerf really purged any remaining interest i had in this game. Maybe i'll start again next spring. But probably not. I'm curently playing Guild Wars 2, Borderlands 2 and Halo 4.

Say goodbye to Granule, Garnotte, Bourlette, Grillepain and Sérac. I'll miss my toons :( specially my hunter Granule and my paladin Garnotte. It's strange but i kind of have a bond with some of my toons. I know it's stupid but it is the way it is.

I just got into the 10 day trial and am leveling up a panda monk. Its ok... Seems like with every exp WoW gets sillier and sillier but I still think it has tight gameplay. I'm still undecided if I'll buy. Maybe if they were still doing a $20 sale on it. Its $30 now. Just the face that they are dropping the price so close to release is a bad sign...

I don't think that the talent changes are necessarily bad. Still figuring it out.

I wish that character transfers were cheaper. I have level 85 toons spread out all over :( I really want to play my warlock and paladin. But they are on other servers and 25 bucks to transfer is not worth it IMO.

I've played many MMOs over the years (EQ1, 2, DAoC, AO, SW:TOR, Rift, Star Trek, Conan, GW:2...) and I always come back to WoW. I'll admit I thought the Panda stuff was silly at first but I got over it and actually enjoy it. I actually like the graphics in this game because they aren't so intense that they affect gameplay.

Last year this time I was hardcore SW:TOR. The one thing that really bothered me was the damned gameplay. It was so laggy, the actions were that is. I also had to decrease all my settings to lowest everything to get 'decent' playability. I'd read about people with mega-gaming rigs that had problems running it. Felt like I was playing through jello or wading through mud. We even had to time our jump for those damned datacrons. The tip was to hit spacebar about .5 seconds before you'd ACTUALLY hit the space bar. Yeah, it was bad. It wore me down and I stopped it and all MMOs for a time.

Fast foward to Mists Beta and I was back at it. The smooth gameplay is just second to none. I also have friends I play with and that's a definite plus.

I've yet to play an MMO that has the smooth play of WoW ( closest was GW:2 but they nerfed my class! :p ). That's my baseline standard for an MMO: how smooth is the play? If your game looks like real life but plays like crap then I could care less. :)

Yeah, I agree. WoW has some smooth/tight gameplay. That is something Blizzard always does well at even if they lack in other areas.

I'm frustrated as hell at the moment though because I'm stuck on level 8 as a figgen n00b Panda Monk at the Temple of the Five Dawns trying to head west to The Ridge of Laughing Winds. It looks like I need to get to the top of the temple in order to cross the bridge that heads west but I'm banging my head against the wall trying to find the friggen lift/stairs/whatever to get up there. I've wondered around the whole map trying to find an alternate route. Grrrr. I feel like such a newbie and my google foo fails me.

One thing I noticed when trying to use Google to find Mists of Pandaria advice: You have to explicitly add "wow" to the search or "warcraft" or else you don't get any WoW results! Crazy! That just shows how downhill population-wise the game has gotten. Use to, type anything and a world of warcraft website would be number 1 or 2 on Google (for instance 'jewelcrafting' or 'mining').

Edit: Click the whirlwind...durp.

Yep. One thing WoW has going for it is that its smooth as butter. When I played SWTOR it was so unresponsive it felt like I was playing it on a laptop monitor from 1993.

Yeah, my examples were those that still bring up WoW stuff first. But I mean, I typed in some places from the new Pandaria areas and was surprised that I didn't find what I was looking for near the top of the search results.

OMG, Demonology for Warlock has become so crazy. There are demons popping up everywhere and a million things to keep track of. I may have to respec to Destruction or something for leveling. And there is some kind of "Tank" build for warlocks now? Are any Warlocks actually tanking or is that a joke?

7 more days of free trial left... Still on the fence if I purchase or not. Wish it was still $20 or the subscription was cheaper... Still $45 for me to have the expansion and play for a month...thats kinda pricy for me.

i decided to pick this up again after about a 2 year gap.

I can't really remember where I was up to but I've only ever been a casual player.. too casual to be involved in a group or a guild, which is why I've never been in one. I'm level 65 at the moment, and I've done it all by myself. :rofl: I would say that the game has gotten a lot easier for some reason. Have they decreased the difficulty of the enemies or something?

Yes, enemies have far less armor than they used to. They have also changed a lot of the gear/talents to do more damage. I quit wow for a solid year, got the 10 day mists trial. Ended up buying it as I wanted to level up past 85 on my priest. Currently don't intend on resubbing, but have the option if I want.

Currently leveling as Disc, I never lose more than 25% HP killing mobs higher than my level, and I can go through a solid 10+ enemies before my mana is considered low. I haven't even used any of the gear from the quests which would increase my stats by a lot. I've been using my cata heroic gear and it's still standing solid.

Also, making 9g per quest, money for repairs doesn't even cause me to blink.
