Do any other self-described casual players find themselves feeling a bit like the odd one out in the game? I was completely happy with my playstyle until I hit 80. I loved exploring, slow-falling off the highest places I could find, acquiring new tailoring recipes, and dancing around in Org. My guild was happy to let me do whatever I wanted, and I helped out people in whatever way I could.Then I hit 80 and they discovered I had never done a dungeon. Thus began my foray into heroics, and even a venture or two into Naxx. I was just starting to get comfortable when the guild started having issues of its own, and rather than trying to figure it all out, I went back to solo-play.But it wasn't the same. I feel like I'm a casual player who had a taste of the non-casual's life, and I'm left wanting neither. It seems like there's this point that a player reaches where you have to decide if you want to commit and actively pursue gear, research loot and bosses and strats, and download more addons than you know what to do with. Or ... you go back to the "casual" life. Which suddenly seems a lot more empty after having a taste of something more.Are there any other casual players who aren't sure what their place in the game is?
