This is how I felt about elemental shaman. It took until she was near 870 before I actually started to see a competitive improvement to DPS. I was almost to the point of shelving her (she's my secondary character) because I felt bad for the trash DPS I was doing in dungeons. Still doesn't keep up with my ret pally but I am not ashamed to take her into an LFR even anymore.

The game feels too easy, and I don't enjoy the fact that there's no challenge.  I'm sure that changes at max level...but dammit, it doesn't feel very rewarding.  Ever.

Yea leveling has been pretty easy for a while now, although you can make it hard if you want to kick yourself by not picking the best talents to survive. Also depends on spec of course. Playing Warlock was the easiest thing I've ever done. DoT multiple mobs and never fall below 100% HP with a 10% shield. Playing Arms Warrior was still easy, but some of the rares were actually difficult and I died a few times while leveling. But yea, when I first played the game wasn't as polished so some specs were incredibly easy while some were borderline impossible at certain levels.
I have not played since March 2016. But if you raid, the gear drops you get from that pretty much makes all questing a cake walk. Besides which the drops from quests are nearly always what you would have wanted 10 levels ago.

Well I just got sat from my raid team for not doing enough dps. First time that ever has happened to me, blizz has just bent over my class this exp...and they balanced it based on high level outliers, so rest of us less geared ones suck. Ive been top dps pretty much almost every exp, but this one I am dead last, and cant break the 400k dps barrier. Other players are wrecking meters at 800k plus, but no matter how I try, I can not keep up.
I know how you feel. We had a sub rogue on our raid team on Galakrond who did massive dps and could do it with crummy gear for the whole fight. He was just that good. He was also good for going back through old content to get achieves. He knew them all. I gave up playing my rogue and started playing my DK for raiding just to be able to contribute. I keep wanting to get back in the game. But, all these comments about legion just make me want to stop playing entirely.

Got it, thanks. Yeah, only the top 1% of the class determine balance. Again, don't play a Warrior - if you're not progression-raiding you're going to underperform, sometimes dramatically.

It's really been two years since anyone posted in this thread? WoW.

Anywho, World of Warcraft: Classic launches on August 27th (closed beta on May 15th). Seeing as this thread goes back to the beta days, I figured that a few people might be interested. Looks like subscriptions will be tied with the current version of the game, so you won't have to manage two subs. I haven't seen whether you need to buy a separate license, though. Hopefully that's tied into whatever Blizzard call the "base" version of WoW right now.
On second thought, let's not go to TechReport. Tis a silly place.

Let this sad game die already, literally been ruined by a subset of its own players infesting the development.
2018: at 120 Zen cores and counting, so pretty much done with intel on the desktop.

I don't have time to play the games I own, not interested in going back to 2005/2006 at this point. :-?

I am looking forward to playing this again, going back to the more RPG and Less RNG WoW will at least be fun. Im not expecting to play it for the next 10 years but it will be something to do when taking a break from retail. Plus if this does well they will likely bring back TBC and wrath servers too I am sure.

I had to look up RNG because I had not heard the acronym. Ran across this R.N.G. (WoW Parody). It was amusing.

Hell, I might. I played enough vanilla to not have super rose tinted glasses (the horrible RNG, the fact that a lot of specs were worthless) but damnit I'm allowed some nostalgia, and I remember the world of vanilla fondly.

Also on the WoW: Classic news front, beta players needed to be reminded that many of the "bugs" they are reporting are aren't actually bugs. It's just the way the game was ~2006 :lol:

All this Classic talk did bring back the itch, though, and I'm back in for now. I haven't touched any of the BfA stuff since re-subbing, but I am pretty happy with how easy it is to slip back in and level alts.

I played during WotLK, Cata, and Panderia. I quit the spring after WoDraynor came out. I liked Cata the best but I did like Panderia also.

Been playing off and on since Dec 2005. Loved BC and LK, and sorta in and out during Cat, MoP and WoD. REALLY liked Legion, and having issues with finding "fun" in BFA. The story is meh, the end game content is meh (island expeditions are terrible...what were they thinking), raiding hasn't been enjoyable due to odd scaling in difficulties. I am still playing because of my wife and our friends and enjoying the social parts at least. We got AOTC for BoD last night (casual guild, only raid 3.5 hours a week) and might just take some time and not worry about it until 8.2. Hopefully the Azhara storylines will perk the story up because the whole KT storyline (alliance player) while good shouldn't be "done" already in my opinion. Should have been deeper than it was. Not necessarily a hater here...just really apathetic at the game right now. lol

Same. It'll be nice to play an officially supported version of Classic, rather than relying on private servers that seem to have all sorts of baggage/drama. Plus at this point, the post Cata world has been around longer than the pre-Cata world, and I really disliked what Cata did to the base zones.

IT'S NOT A BUG BUT A FEATURE! :P

Meh, I'm on the fence. I don't see myself spending hours in it. (Vanilla that is)

I just started my subscription back up, first time in 10 years. I played heavily in Vanilla and BC 20+ hours a week, I was in my 20s and had no kids. WotLK was good but my son was born and my available time became less and less. I did not buy BFA yet, honestly i'm hoping I get a beta key for Classic. So far I'm enjoying leveling from 80-110.
