Wow - two years gone by, and the memories, all the memories. The wins, the losses, the triumphs, the tragedies, wipes and boss-kills, new and old allies and enemies, the comedies and errors, bugged quests and mechanics, OP moments, moments of despair. Two Blizzcons, new guildies, drama, broken friendships, new relationships, the fun discoveries in and out of game, large and small.Memories.Sintra E'Drien of the Ebon Blade, né Sindorei

Those two years felt fairly boring to me. I leveled up to 80 fairly fast, started doing heroics and gearing the old-fashion way which I'll admit that part was quite fun. I remember running AN? OK? like once a day, everyday for like 2 weeks before I got my trinket drop and there were several other instances were I just needed that 1 ilvl 200 purple drop :D from the final boss no less.It was pretty fun running Naxaramas 'remake' for the first time. My guild wasn't too serious back then and I was in a casual guild. We only cleared like 1 quarter and cleared the first bosses of a few other quarters. Took us like a month to gear-up enough to make up for our lack of skill so we could clear all of naxx and get our Kel'Thuzzad kill. 5 months later, naxx was mighty boring while we waiting unhapppily for ANY new content. 20 Kul Thuzad kills, 20 OS kills and nothing to do when not spending 4 hours a week raiding. :(. 8 monts later we were so bored.Wotlk was fun for me but it lacked far far too much content. After Ulduaar, we got another 2-3 months of entertainment, then nerfing came out making the content easier and easier and easier(woo?). Only to find our, gear that was hard-earned would be obtainable by doing 'super-easy-mode heroics'. ... and ToC came out which was extremely easy to do. Another 4 months of waiting then weh ave ICC which was fun for a good 4 months followed by 8 months of wondering WTH was going to come after ICC as our boss kill numbers were starting to reach mid-double digits. Here's hoping Cataclsym is more like BC with lots of raids and fairly regular content rather than content once a 'year' and gear-for-free philosophy. I doubt it, but, I'm hopeful. At the very least, we get to do new dungeons, new roics, new raids for the next 6 months. I can't wait to experience the new content since Wow has been so content-starved the last 6 months or so.

@ WesSince the only thing you level a character for is to raid, I think you're going to be disappointed again. But hey you can always drag out old cliches about free gear and easy content instead of find new things to do, right?

It sounds to me like you weren't doing hard modes. To complain about free gear and lack of content but not do hard modes.... If I weren't doing hard modes I certainly wouldn't be yearning for a return to bc philosophy.Naxx was an ok instance on reg mode. Problem was that it didn't have hard modes. Toss out some of the heroic settings in there and suddenly it fills the gap to Ulduar MUCH better than it did. It felt to me at the time like ToC came out a little too soon after Ulduar and the gap from ToC to ICC was too long. Basically Ulduar -> ICC was the right time, but they got the intermediate step in the wrong place. ICC was obviously out for too long before Cataclysm. I have to wonder if that was Blizzard realizing they couldn't meet the production cycles they had hoped for long term, or if it was just a matter of the Azeroth revamp being MASSIVE.
