This is probably the greatest contributor to my personal burnout: feeling new every 2 months when I've been playing for 6 years. An investment of time like that should be rewarded with a perception of competence and confidence, and WoW isn't providing that.I get that they just re-wrote essentially the game from scratch, I'm understanding... to a point. That point ends when I'm asked to forget that this rollercoaster, while not as steep as the cataclysm dip, has been happening for years, which I can't. It's getting cumbersome. The game is angled to support altoholism, but not with this constant barrage of "feeling new again".I felt out every class in WOTLK, because the expansion was designed, in part, to let us do that, and I don't even recognize my characters much any more unless they have made it into the top 3-4 I've cared enough to maintain (beyond "crafting alt level") through this expansion's twist and turns. I used to be, if I do say so myself, a great asset to my guild for advising just about every class and spec. Now?... I shamefully shrug my shoulders, and go back to reforging my 2-3 active characters.
