I played it a lot early on. For some reason, the big changes in Cataclysm didn't sit well with me. Guybrush, you might not be aware that before Cataclysm (the third expansion) the world with all the lower levels was very different than it is now. I got so used to that world that I never really got to like the changed one.

It sounds like there are even a lot more changes now. I might come give it another try sometime soon. I'm happily playing Guild Wars 2 right now.

I don't mean any criticism of WoW. Even when I left it, I thought it was probably the best designed and supported game out there. I'm glad you are enjoying it Guybrush.

Must have been lots of changes. People in WOW official forums telling me that except for whether pve, pvp or rpg rea;ms are not important. Apparently you used to want to pick realms close to you and one for alliance and one for horde but now something about the way the servers work realms are not important anymore.

Mostly for me it was more like a "who moved my cheese" experience. Or maybe another way to look at it was that I was so familiar with the world that I knew that the Cataclysm changes were a bit like taking the world you live in and having it change overnight to a post-apocalyptic world. Everything I knew about safe areas and quests and towns all changed. I think most people welcomed it but it didn't work for me.

Bob, I'm not big on the changes either. I think that is why we stepped away, though we will be back wave

Guybrush, WoW "consolidated" some realms to keep populations up. I don't think that is the exact right wording, but folks from more than one realm are now playing in the same sandbox wave

I've started over. Redoing alliance characters on one server and horde on another one, just because I'm an altohlic and easier this way.

Alliance server: Darrowmere
Kewalaka: male Draenei Shaman, specialization: Elemental

Level 12 but still in 1-10 area. Still quests to do.

Horde server: Hyjal
Yulyadya: female Goblin Warlock, Destruction

Qiong: female Pandaren Hunter, Marksmanship
(Qiong chinese for "Red Jade"

Hmmmm, answered but it's not here.

Guybrush, there are a ton of quests in each area. I do like to follow each chain to it's end, but most people move on to a new area when the quests turn grey or sooner to level faster. wave

L4L, I'll be back too. You know there are big changes planned in December with the new programming, right? I was using an authenticator, but it got lost when I moved. So I hadn't been online in about 3 months. Got that fixed, but now I am so far out of the loop, I feel lost.
Also I've gotten into ESO and am enjoying that. It's much better than when I did the beta.
WoW is still the best as far as I can see.

Andrea, I didn't know that. We have not been playing much so I am out of the loop too, but am feeling the itch to get back. Too many games, too little time....wave

From what little I've read about next expansion it sounds like every class is getting revamped. They're also improving how characters look.
Warlords of Draenor. Right now only orc, dwarf and gnome visual improvments are showing and only dwarf has male and female, other two just male.

I understand why they do it, but I really hate having to learn my class over and over and over wave

Me too, L4L. So many changes. I've stopped being excited about the yearly updates/expansions.

That's one advantage of just starting. By time I'm ready to learn all those skill, they'll be the new ones anyway.
