Good article. I’ve always been a casual player and I never raided. To get good PVE gear really never interested me, I never want to lose time “farming” something (even dailies) or thinking about optimization of my dps. The base reason of that is I was only able to play the first half of the day at the week-end last years, so no investment in PVE guilds.I’ve always enjoyed to level slowly, to read quests, to RP with emotes, to randomly /w people to make quests together and to find good world PVP situations (these great moments are enough to make my day),... I’m also found of duels and BGs at max level (or below). In both it has always been possible to blow some guys with a gear twice better than yours, due to the context (in BG) (, some luck) or some talents nobody takes neither in arena specs nor in PVE specs. When you are casual, you can take the talents that fit to you, it doesn’t matter if you don’t have that improved CS, if at that moment you played arms with a shield just because you loved spell reflect or if you level and PVP casting improved smites as a priest, you are free!This year I have much more game time. At week-ends I become a hardcore... casual, I play almost the whole day, on different characters, I can alternate all the things I love of the game in a few hours. All is much more accessible than before for casuals: professions, heroics (I succeed healing in my first heroic last week-end...), money and so on.During the week I take the time to go on some site, sometimes to listen a podcast, to watch videos. Hardcore part of the game is interesting even if I don’t want to play it. There are so many class mechanisms to discover and to never be tired of, so weeks give me inspiration to improve the fun of the week-ends game time.
