World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

I spent a lot of time today reading about the changes in the upcoming Cataclysm expac and came to the following conclusion:
I’m not sure it’s enough for me.

Although I am pleased it will only be 5 new levels to grind out, and I’m glad they are FINALLY doing SOMETHING with Kalimdor (Flying mounts in the barrens? Yes, please!), and the fact that I’m sorta intrigued by the entire ‘underwater’ city they have spoken about a little– I just don’t think it’s enough to make me want to play again.

I’m so burned out on the grinding rep. And grinding instances. And grinding raids. And grinding gold. And mats. And honor. And badges…

I want something fresh. I want something different…

I want a modern day UO.

    First of all let me mention the fact that I am a WoW addict and I play well over 60hours a week on a regular basis.

    Next… I am also very unhappy with WoW currently. For 5 years I have played the game and I can happily say that I have killed every boss avaliable to kill. I have an 80 of nearly every class and I have said on multiple ocassions that I do indeed LOVE the game.

    However… Lately I’ve been distracted by many many things. I have lost faith in WoW and as for Cataclysm… It’s not looking so grand to me.

    Great! Their making all of the old stuff cool. They are gonna let us fly in the old world. Awesome. Here, lets give you dragons to kill! (Done that.) Here have two new races! (Seen that before) That way you can level up from level 1 again. (Been there.) Oops! And another profession… (Imagine that..) Can’t ya give me something new? Please? lol

    Seems to me this game has turned into something quite like “Achievements for EVERYONE!” If a game isn’t difficult, it’s hard to keep my attention.

    Hate to say it. I’ve nearly given up on WoW Cataclysm or not.

    I agree with what has been said here and I would like to say that I am definitely not going to play WOW when Cataclysm comes out. I would like to say that I am going to play Star Wars:The Old Republic and it is going to be the best game ever. Unfortunately I know that I will play SWTOR for about a month, get bored, buy Cataclysm and get addicted to WOW again for another year. That seems to be my MO lately.

    ..so yeah I will end up playing Cataclysm, Hate it or Love it, its a good game that captures the imagination.

    You know, I have heard a LOT of good things about The Old Republic.

    For me, everytime I go back to WOW, I like it even less. Seems like I could save myself the trouble.

  • I’m going to continue playing WoW casually until Cataclysm comes out. There are a few things in it that I find intriguing enough to make me stick around to check it out. If I’m not impressed, I’ll look around then.

    What is it that you find intriguing? That’s the entire reason for the discussion. 🙂
