May 9th 2011 9:06PM Honestly? I quit in February. As did the rest of my household (a total of three accounts). I know quite a few others that just wandered away. New content? Wasn't terribly exciting to begin with and by the fourth or fifth character from 80-85, dead boring. Ran through new vanilla stuff on both sides.
I think I probably would have left much sooner had I not enjoyed the guild I was in so much...but finally it wasn't enough to keep me there.

I find more fun levelling alts than playing endgame any more. You're right...social raiding guilds rarely exist, and when they do, they tend to implode. I like being in guilds with friends, but when it comes to raiding, I need something more serious (which is why I tend to go on GDKP runs on my server for raiding. Run by very serious raiders who get the job done)
I've ended up discontinuing my sub to WoW...hoping to find the fun again when Cata comes out. Otherwise...it's really not worth spending $15/month just to hear people prating about the almighty grail of GS. There's more to the game that GS.
Aug 17th 2010 7:22PM I'm currently playing a Praetorian Revolutionary, and loving it. My heroes are going vigilante...I like walking the line between good and bad (and sometimes crossing it, if nobody's looking)
My current villains will most likely come up to rogues...I like to inhabit the grey areas, because nothing's black and white. There are shades of grey to everything.
Jul 24th 2010 8:14AM You're right...it's a game. And the object of the game is to have fun. It would be nice to be the best (I have multiple 80s, and I have put in plenty of time trying to get to the top of the game)...but eventually it becomes a huge grind and it's not fun. So I go back and level an alt, play with friends and have fun.
To me, it's more important to enjoy what you're doing than to necessarily be the very best at it. Because if you enjoy what you're doing, the rest comes along with it.
Jun 20th 2010 12:25PM I prefer playing the tree I level in...hence loathing healing on my druid (I leveled her boom, and tried healing because we needed healers in-guild at the time). I ended up leveling my shaman to heal, and my druid does nothing but farm herbs now :/
Jun 20th 2010 12:22PM My first main was a hunter. She was benched when our then-Kara raiding team needed a new tank: I speed-leveled my paladin, who became my new main. Shortly after, I leveled another paladin (this one Ally-side) so I could play both sides of the fence. Those two lasted through Naxx and Ulduar, swapping back and forth as mains.
I burned out on tanking bad after tanking 7 nights a week for far too long...ally and horde-side both. So I leveled a druid, whom I loathed, and my shaman, who is my current main (although will be replaced by the paladin again come Cataclysm...my bf has a shaman healer as well, and it's far easier to level together with a tank/healer combination)
Yes, I have too many alts and a limited attention span.
Mar 27th 2010 7:46AM Distance is no deterrence to a relationship. Nor is meeting online. Both of these obstacles are overcome with persistence and desire on both parts (yes, I met my partner online, in a video game. Yes, we were in a long-distance relationship. We have now been living together four years).
What everyone points out is correct: The biggest obstacle right now, in BOTH of your relationships, is dishonesty. You're dishonest to your earthly partner by not telling her of your online love. You're dishonest to your Azerothian partner by not telling her that you're involved with someone on Earth. Dishonesty and lack of communication are the biggest relationship killers.
Come clean. You owe that to BOTH of these women.
Feb 15th 2010 8:15AM ...and then Buffy staked Edward.
Feb 15th 2010 8:08AM seriously :( There's a guild of RP'ing vampires and their blood servants on my server. Hanging around Darkshire with the werewolf wanna-bes.
Thing is, if they had seriously thought-out backstories and anything remotely convincing, it would be far better than the Twilight crowd that these things attract.
