I think my perspective did.At first; when I joined the game I was deciding whether or not to go on a RP server because I previously enjoyed RP-ing but I decided against it as I didn't know the backstory and lore. So off I went on my night elf druid, spending quite a few minutes reading quest text just to learn more about the lore. It was quite fun at first but then I got yelled at by people who I was leveling with (random people; none of my friends play WoW) so I stopped taking so long when reading, I kind of regret it now though as I find WoW lore very very interesting. Nowadays I have a forced habit of just skimming over quest text.I also changed my perspective on a lot of other things; take raiding and dungeoneering for example, I used to think they weren't that important, doing some of the dungeons for fun occasionally and taking around 2 months getting my death knight to 80. I kind of wish I still took a slower pace doing things, I find it made things slightly more enjoyable. I remember being in awe of flying mounts; I really wanted one, especially a netherdrake but I never got to 70 before Wrath came out and I had a break between BC and Wrath as well. I eventually got it but now it doesn't feel as great, if you know what I mean, you kind of grow out of the 'oh wow! That looks shiny!' thing after you hit the level cap. But yeah when I first played I remember going all 'wow! Everything's so big!' and I used to spend most of my time just exploring at level 27 (getting quite a lot of deaths along the way as well), I had the blasted lands flight path by level 20 I believe, a level 70 helped get me there. But yes; I believe my perspective has changed but I don't know if it's good or not but I definitely would like to go and level in Azeroth again as if I didn't know a single thing about it.
