'WoW classic and The Burning Crusade were far and away the eras that pinned me most devotedly to my keyboard, smitten by the game. (Others think very differently, as demonstrated below.)'This. The game world experience itself was what did it for me, not raids. Back in 2006, I joined a guild, leveled up, and enjoyed the gameworld for what it was. However, I (like the overwhelming majority of players) never got to step foot in a raid, let alone beat one. Vanilla WoW is a testament to how NOT to make an end game experience, if you want more than 1% of your player base to see it (let alone beat it). For the average player, the game world leveling experience WAS World of Warcraft. Leveling through though the dungeon content and class quests with my guildmates was what kept me in the game for so long.Trying to become a raider later on, that is a different story altogether.
