Wrath of the Lich King: Exhausted?
I have been playing WoW for close to 3 years now, I think. One of the main things that has kept me
in the game so long was a basic MMORPG concept, that Blizzard developed to great heights - there is always stuff to do. If it's not leveling, then it's questing. If it's not questing, it's money-making. If it's not money-making, it's gearing up. If it's not gearing up, it's raiding. If it's not raiding, it's achievement farming. I could probably go on for a while (without mentioning PvP, I don't really do that).
So okay, there is always stuff to do. The game is endless, and that's one of its charms. Look at me though. Look at
Terion of Nathrezim
. I am sitting at a little over 9000 achievement points, 40 exalted reputations, average item level of my gear 264,
(almost 100 in fact),
and a beautiful
. Not a whole lot for me to go for. I know it isn't even near what the top players in the world have achieved, but my goal here is not to brag. I am giving you all this information to show you how actively I have pursued whatever was on my mind, and that I have rarely been idle. Almost every day, several hours per day, often forsaking Friday nights so I can raid.
And I have barely logged in for over a month now. I just can't find the motivation to do more mindless farming, to repeat the boss fights I have done dozens of times, to grind money or reputation, to chase after achievements. I felt similarly a few months ago when patch 3.3 was about to enter public testing - but then the PTR came up and I had a lot of new things to do again. My question to you, readers, is this:
do you think that the
Wrath of the Lich King
has been exhausted?
I know 3.3.5 is bringing a new raid, but a single boss hardly represents a lot of interesting content. Neither professions, nor classes are changing significantly. No new (serious) quest chains, hardly any new achievements.
Is there anything that can keep you playing when you are tired of it, or if you are still an active player - what keeps you in? Are you merely waiting for Cataclysm to rock your socks off, or are you rushing to level your alts, earn achievements that may go away, explore the world that will never be the same? Do you think the Golden Age of LK is over?
: After rereading the blog, I realized it was my fault. I worded it very poorly. So let me reiterate - this is not supposed to be a QQ post, regardless of what it looks like. It's a discussion.
