I'm actually taking a WoW-vacation now. I was ridiculously burned out on this game, every single damned second I spent on it felt like a chore, and I couldn't even bare to login if my friends weren't online and talking because I didn't feel like the gameplay alone was holding up for me.I mean, I did my dailies which are basically a second job, then did my random heroic which have grown very, very old since the start of WotLK, then i'd do any solo content I had off cooldown (i'm a mount collector) which also felt like a chore/job, then i'd look for raid groups which usually ended up in me being frustrated and very pissed off because i'm a PuG player now (I used to be a guild player but.. now I just couldn't get myself into it again, too much responsibility for a freaking video game). Part of that is that i'm a tank now, and there just doesn't seem to be any acceptance for new tanks this late in the expansion (or at least on my server? dunno).3.3.3 wasn't really any help for me, and it's a shame because I was hoping it'd regain my interest. A few attempts using the random battleground feature made me remember why I stopped doing PvP in the first place, and most of the other changes are so small they're barely noticeable.Time off is CRUCIAL in world of warcraft, it becomes very grindy, repetitive and well.. depressing to keep playing on while you're not enjoying it. My friends tried to keep me playing but.. they can't just magically make the game fun for me. I'll surely be back again within a month or two, but for now I need time off. Nothing can make the game fun now, and for some reason some people can't understand that (mainly the ones that are still finding the things i find boring fun). Heroics and dailies and questing and achievements are fun for a little while, but this game just doesn't hold up when you play it alot for a long time.Sorry for the rant, figured I needed to let that out somewhere.
