Once Again Blizzard strikes to Obsolete not only CURRENT content but to make everyone wear a sigh around their necks. The sign is to remind you that nothing you do or accomplishments you strive to gain for yourself mean anything at all. Why people even continue to follow the PVE treadmill I find astounding. Beat your head against a wall and when you finish the rug will be pulled out from under you. I think their model is wearing thin and the mousetrap will soon snap shut. The mice too learn eventually that it snaps shut on your neck if you continue to go for the cheese.

Your position confuses crow. The objective of the PVE game has always been "beat the bosses, get epic gear, which enables you to beat more bosses." Bonuses like heroics modes and achievements added some new gradients to that formula but it's still mostly the same thing. Content is meant to become outmoded eventually, because eventually people have played it and it's time to move on. if Blizzard just kept on upping the difficulty on Ragnaros people would get sick of his speech and go off to play other games. You keep people playing THIS game if you add new content, but by it's very nature, new content has to replace the old content, and that usually means an increased difficulty, and a corresponding increased reward from gear. It's a game. In the grand scheme of the world, it's meaningless. But the same is true of absolutely any game. Even PVP in WoW. So unless you're somehow curing cancer with your big crits, you're on the same treadmill we are, sweet thing.

What, did you only figure this out just now? What do you get when WoW will inevitably end? A mountain of gold equal to what your character got? A sword that increases your intellect?No, you're left with nothing but memories and experiences. That's how it always has been. That's what it always will be. Nothing we do in here will provide anything tangible. If that bugs you, feel free to quit now and enjoy your life doing substantial things, but I'll enjoy the years WoW has left.

"The sign is to remind you that nothing you do or accomplishments you strive to gain for yourself mean anything at all."It seems like you think only Blizzard assigns value to what we do in-game. If that's the way you think, then I feel very, very sorry for you.What I do in-game, I do because I want to, for the challenge or for fun or because I have goals for my character. The value of my actions is something I alone determine. Outside my guild, no one cares about our runs of old 40-man content. But inside my guild, we had an awesome time running those old dungeons, and we bonded over exploring stuff that was out of our reach before. That value is something no one else can determine, and something no one can take away. If you can't understand that, then as I said, I feel a great swell of pity for you.Also: your mousetrap metaphor is only valid if something bad happens in the end. I've yet to hear about anyone's neck getting snapped over a content nerf. ^_^
