Farewell WoW, MoP = RIP

General Discussion

Finally ready to call it quits, realized today after almost 8 years of playing that I just didn't enjoy the game anymore.

MoP ruined this game for people like me, I have a family, and I cannot and WILL not be forced into doing dailies across all my toons or hell even ONE toon in order to progressively gear my characters.

The new loot system for LFR, Sha, etc is completely unbearable, constantly seeing 28g pop up across all my toons gives me ZERO incentive to continue grinding out the casual content I am used to.

And its not like I havent given it time, I leveled nine classes to 90, and going through the same content over and over wasn't so bad, its the point where you get to 90 and you are pigeon holed into grinding dailies over and over or PVP'ing (which I do NOT enjoy). So I canceled today, which is saying alot because I play alot and used to enjoy this game massively.

Some will flame me, blizz will probably close the post, but truth be told, if they don't address these things soon there will be many following suit.
Come back in about 6-8 months and I am betting there will be something that is introduced to make the grind easier..

Remember in Wrath- the rep grind,, 6-8 months later they introduced the rep tabards.. i suspect Blizz will do something similair with the dailies.

That will be far too late, I am afraid.

hahaha
5.1--> all your toons will get doble rep if you have gotten to exalted with a toon. Oh, and the new loot system is beautiful. I had never, ever, gotten so much gear before. And I'm not kidding. RNG is RNG I guess, but for once, people aren't ninjaing loot to give it to friends or to shard it in front of me while they laugh. I guess you're just burned out. Anyway, enjoy life.
No one if forcing you to do dailies. You Don't need valor to be successful in raids (if your in a guild that wants you to have all BiS then sure but that's your choice). The new loot system is no different than what LFR was before I did plenty of lfrs where i got nothing for weeks.

It's your choice how you play this game man. All this "blizz is forcing me to do this" is all self inflicted imo.

Something does seem to be lost by not seeing the gear drop each time. Despite the frustrations that attend losing a roll, the chance at winning seems less abstract somehow when an item is actually revealed for rolling.

I mean, somehow I don't think slot machines would be so popular in Vegas if they were relegated to private, individual-sized rooms. I suspect that the sound and excitement of someone winning are part of the reinforcement that keeps people pulling levers.

In the end...not that many. Having the best time in WoW that I have in years since MOP dropped.
You don't need VP gear. Especially if the only raiding you're doing on that character is LFR. You don't even need it if you're raiding normal or heroic raids either as VP gear is inferior to normal raid gear. VP gear is even inferior to some LFR gear because the VP gear has terrible itemization. You are not forced to do dailies, much less forced to do them on multiple characters.

The new LFR loot system is significantly better than the old one that had people constantly rolling need on anything and everything.

I find it funny you have 9 level 90s and are throwing down the "I have a family" excuse.
One has to wonder... why the grind?

I fear there is going to be a real lack of content in later patches of this expansion, and the grind is their way of stretching it out.

VP grinding is going to be required going forward, because of the upgrade mechanism.
