I don’t have much to say about WoW to be honest right now. I know all the quests by heart, I’ve raided all the content in the game even if it was not current and even tough I haven’t downed the Lich King I’ve seen enough of him to be satisfied. My main is more than geared enough to take on anything and I’ve done most of what I want to do in the game.
Sure, there’s our guild Walk the Plank that I still plan on getting back into raiding come Cataclysm but right now it’s not very exciting. If I was to put a raid up on Sunday for example I don’t know if we would be getting more than 3 or 4 people. Raiding with 6 pugs isn’t exactly super fun to lead but thankfully I’ve had Kaozz, her husband and a friend of theirs to make things awesome. That’s pretty much the only thing that would really motivate me to log in and even then, how long would that last?
So I’m wondering. Have I come to the end of the road? To the point where I’ve completed WoW and I’m truly done with it? Should I do like other games I’ve loved in the past, put in on a shelf and dust it off once in a while to take it out for a spin and reminisce about the good ol’ days? I mean, WoW is not eternal and neither should my playing it. Numerous times in the past I’ve stopped playing but this is actually the first time I’m wondering if I’m simply done with it. I mean that I still have friends playing and it’s fun to play with them but in between those days… I have zero motivation to log in. If I do I sit around for 10 minutes, watching the pugs shout out invites in trade and not really feeling up to spend any amount of time in a raid.
I simply feel like I have nothing left to do. This isn’t even burnout, just a plain “been there, done that” feeling.
I’m giving this a week to see how things go… but somehow I feel like this might be it until Cataclysm at least.
PS: I know about the new Troll and Gnome quests but these are over so fast.
