I have a level 67 warlock and I've solo'ed the entire way. In fact, I've never even been in a guild. I was trying to see if I could make it to level 70 without crossing the Dark Portal (an experiment) but recently decided to cross over to find trainers.I think that solo-ing is a viable way of playing. While I would like to see higher level instances I just can't imagine having to "clock in" and be on a schedule to live up to the comment I made to a group of players. I have a busy life so I feel it would be unfair to others if I couldn't show up for a raid. But I have been able to go to lower level instances and solo there to be able to see the content.I might be unusual in the fact that I am a purely solo player. But it is fun for me and I think everyone should play so they enjoy the game.- Curt -

Lvl 67 affliction lock, same here, I have soloed most content, I am in a guild, and they are really open to my "solo" progression path, I simply log in and talk to friends while I do it, a lot have offered help, but are usually busy doing end game stuff.Sure I end up DE'ing most stuff, but I have a lot of fun trying to keep up the shards while instancing.

It's been done before. The guy killed 60 mobs til about 65ish, then did lots of CoT: Old Hillsbrad til bout 68, then killed the 70 mobs outside Karazhan.On topic, I've recently tried to solo Onyxia as a 'Lock. Voidy tanking doesn't work very well because of crappy voidwalker aggro, and I can't seem to keep myself up when tanking her myself.

I'm right there with your opinions. I've got a lvl.73 human warrior with virtually no contact w/other players. Although I am in a guild, work schedules.personal commitments, and the inability to sit more than 2hrs. playing WoW limit my interactions. I don't mind helping others out when I have time but I find group raids to be restricting. Add the fact I find WoWspeak (cryptic abbreviations) a little difficult to understand at times. To each their own,I guess!

i just hit 68 last night and 99% of my gameplay is soloed. i have missed out on a lot of goodies in instances for my lvl. wearing mostly greenies through out the game and the only difficult parts have been pvp. of course i go back to solo all the instances i can for the achievements, but solo is a fun way to play.having my own guild with no one in it and having all the bank space i need is fun too.

You're not alone. My main is a level 80 hunter and he's been fully solo all the way through (outside a couple of grouped instances early on when my friends were on the same realm). Same with all my alts - all guildless and friends list mostly empty (and the names that are there either never play anymore or are some random names who never contact).So basically I treat a MMO game like a singleplayer game, and I'm loving it.As for soloing content, haven't tried any of the higher level things yet as I'm going through things in order - the next stop's Razorfen Downs so there's still some time before I try and knock down Onyxia & co or the Outland instances, but eventually I'll try out them as well.
