Jul 5th 2011 12:27PM I started with Vashj'ir on my main and loved it, and skipped Hyjal. I did Hyjal on my "second" as a change of pace and found it boring and (mostly) ugly compared to Vashj'ir. On my main, I went back at 85 and did Hyjal only as far as the quests achievement (which conveniently leaves the Twilight Cultists vendors phased in) then happily abandoned it.
Strangely, I found Hyjal unbearably long, but Vashj'ir held my interest and I never thought "What, another quest? When will this zone END already??"
My two favorite zones were Vashj'ir and Uldum, hands down. I must like being in the minority. :-P
Apr 21st 2011 5:07PM Ok, that pic is very disturbing. Thank you Overachiever! :-)
Mar 15th 2011 12:52PM WoW is my first MMO and so the character I created was as close an approximation as I could get to my first D&D character -- a half-elf ranger-cleric. Since I was rolling Alliance to play with friends, I chose a night elf druid and named her a derivative of my D&D character's name. I made my second character a hunter (dwarven this time) and gave her my ranger-cleric's pet.
I've gone through many other alts, most of which haven't lasted, but those two have ties that go way way back. My druid is still my main, and my hunter is still my "second". Ah, nostalgia.
Mar 7th 2011 8:06AM I work full time and have two little kids (1 and 3) -- I have time for one game, so WoW is it and has been for 6 years. There's so much to do in Azeroth that doesn't require hours of commitment that I won't be able to finish everything I want to do before the next expansion comes out.
Jan 28th 2011 12:45PM @Josin That was my Carbonite experience as well. Much nicer running without it.
Jan 28th 2011 11:06AM RatingBuster, not EquipCompare. Serves me right for commenting while away from my gaming system.
Jan 28th 2011 9:42AM My top addons: Auctioneer, Auctionator, Postal, Recipe Book, EquipCompare.
Since I don't raid and almost never do dungeons, it's all about the information. Questing and Dailies don't require addons (for me).
Jan 25th 2011 3:12PM @egburr Ok, granted, I haven't done Deepholm yet. I got to 85 doing Vashj'ir and Uldum, and my next character (my skinner) is 82 and almost done with Hyjal. So I haven't experienced the Deepholm dailies.
I guess I just empty my bags at every opportunity. My 5th is filled with "permanent" items (pots, reagents, etc). My 4th is my (large) herb bag. My 3rd is my off-spec gear set and a few assorted items. My 2nd and 1st are empty and used for loot and quest items. I just sell and repair every time I turn in quests and since Cata only gives you 3 quests at a time (that's another minor gripe but *shrug*) I'm constantly going back to the questgivers.
It did get a bit annoying in Uldum because it has/had no mailbox. But since I was hearthing back to SW every day for the cooking daily, and I only get an hour of play time a night (if I'm lucky) then my bags just haven't filled up yet.
Jan 25th 2011 11:28AM I totally understand not looting mobs if your bags are full -- that's just annoying to have to figure out what to delete just so you can pick up more cheap vendor items.
On the other hand, the last time I ran out of bag space was running old vanilla instances. I have frostweave bags (which, granted, not everyone has, especially while leveling) and I usually have 1 - 1.5 empty. Mailboxes aren't that far away and my bank alt sells everything that's not vendor trash. Cata quests don't have many quest items.
