Your thoughts on Wrath of the Lich King
By SpACeLy_II

So far, it's very casual gamer friendly and I see no reward for the hardcore/serious gamer. I see no point in doing 25 mans as the fucking scrubs are going to be able to 10 man them aswell.

The landscape is great, the quests are fun (for the first time anyway). I hope they don't re-use old graphic models and they better come out with something for the more serious gamer.

I have no desire to play this as much as I played TBC as of yet. This could change though

Anyone elses thought?

man...I miss the days of DAOC, so much pvp fun in that game with occasional pve raids. Totaly owns WoW.

As for WOTLK, if you aren't keeping up with the news on raiding.
There was a merger between the top two WoW guilds and they beat the new 25 man content in 2 days after WOTLK release. (WTB new expansion?)

I'm playing WOTLK but because of work I'm still 78 and not 80 so can't comment on the raiding aspect.

Redih I am 100% in the same situation as you.

Ppl in my guild got 80 2-3 days after release. They ate all their meals infront of comp and did 30-48 hour sessions.

I have a career and cant be doing that stuff anymore. I still play far more than I should, just not for that amount all at once...

well I work but I still have 5-7 hours in the evenings to burn so I just play instead of going out or w/e, plus I spent the weekends playing a lot too just to get up to speed with the rest of the guild

I tend to be efficient at leveling so I generally level fast (i.e. time played per level)
I don't bother reading lore, or even what the quest says.
Got a window opened with wowhead.com where I pull up the quest name, copy/paste loc #s into the game and do the quest.

This works very well, especially if you don't know the map.
What is nice with this method is that for each quest, users will post comments if other quests can be done in same area, so you can nail down more than one quest per trip to the specific area on the map.

will quest helper work in this situation???

Quest A, B, C, D

Quest A is independant
Quest D is a follow up of C which in turn is a follow up of B
(so B->C->D)

Quest A and D are done in same area so essentialy you would want to do them at same time but you currently have A and B in your quest log.

Will quest helper allow you to figure out that you should finish B, then C, and then go do A and D?

Cause from WoWhead's links I can figure that very quickly.

"man...I miss the days of DAOC, so much pvp fun in that game with occasional pve raids. Totaly owns WoW."

creating Warhammer was such a cop out. They definitely just recycled Daoc, ported to directx 10, and put it in a shiny box and marketed it well.

So basically daoc is paying for itself a second time and left to die

My good friend and GM for 2 years was the first DK in the US, and probably the world ( if you account for EU getting their 6 hours early ) to get level 80 on his Deathknight.

Obviously he played more than one would consider normal but he also went to bed, and was nearly the first 80 on his server.

He happens to design mods and is that perfectionist guy who does every single quest possible, and was in Beta. Nothing substitutes for knowing exactly what quests to do that waste the least amount of time. Still this wouldn't have been possible in the last expansion, and it wouldn't have been possible for him to tank one of the 4hm in 25 man naxx like the 3rd day of the expansion.

They've really dumbed it down but that isnt really a bad thing in comparison to tBC. I wanted to kill myself getting attuned for Magtheridon and helping anyone else do it.
