That's pretty much how I feel about buying WotLK in general. Not worth it, not going to waste my money on it. BC was a huge let down, so why bother? I'll be playing a little each week to have something to do until I get a better computer and can play one of the new MMOs out there, then it's bye bye Blizz. WotLK is their shark jump in my opinion. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe WoW will continue to rein as king of the MMO, only time will tell. It sure has outlived it's fun for me and several of my RL friends. We're pretty well burned out on it I guess. But, really, if you're new to WoW you have to pay about $90 to get WoW, BC, and WotLK then pay $15/mo to even play it. I sure wouldn't have gotten addicted to it if I had to invest that kind of coin in the beginning. Good luck staying on top Blizz, you're gonna need it.

I didn't say anything about poor people. You do realize there are people in the world who are lucky if they get to eat today and it has nothing to do with mistakes they've made right? Anyway, I said it is a waste of money. Would you have honestly invested $90 plus the monthly fee to start playing? My guess is no. Anyone who says otherwise is either lying or a fool.

I don't know what you think is so good about the other MMO's but I don't think BC was a let down and I wouldn't say that Wrath is a let down (yet) So far what I have seen is a large change in the way quests are done lots of new ideas. Yes you will always have the go there kill that go there collect this but that will happen for any quest. The scenery looks amazing and the instances are different and look far better. I do think paying $90 + monlthy (15) to start from scratch wont be as attactive but people can pay $40 to get the Battle chest save $10 and try the game out. It is still worth playing the old content and if they get sick of that then they won't buy wrath. Every expansion it seems the graphics are upgraded things are bigger and fights are more epic. Money spent on WoW is money saved from doing something else for the month :)

The question was "do you think the Dalaran ring is worth buying?" not "Do you think WotLK is worth it" or "QQ about life in general".It sounds like you're especially bitter about WoW because you're bored with it. It's no big deal, move on to some other entertainment, why get your undies in a bundle over it (& why read WoWinsider, for that matter)?

I didn't QQ about anything. I just said that WotLK wasn't worth the RL money, therefore I must think the 8kg for the ring isn't worth it by default. I don't have my undies in a bunch it sounds like you are the ones with their undies in a bunch. Why can't someone just make an observation without it turning it a big flame fest? It's a game folks, let's get a little perspective and not take it too seriously. Oh, and I'm not bitter. I'm just not interested in the expansion. This site has become wrathinsider and has all but abandoned the "classic" WoW at this point. It might be nice for newcomers and those of us who aren't buying it to have some content about the stuff we're playing. That's why I keep reading. I'm hoping something relative to the part of the game I'm playing will be posted.

You can deny it all you want, justify it all you want, explain it all you want... but your comments are purely and simply QQ and totally irrelevant to the article.Sure, you have a right to comment on it as you see fit, and you chose to go off-topic. That's fine. But don't turn around and be complain when others also excerise that right by remarking on your comments. That's pure hypocrisy.
