Monday Morning Hang Over: Friday's post
In light of my Fridays post, i got a lot of commetns regarding the Alts.
Why Wait untill 3.2? => its only one month away since the ptr patchnotes are up.
So if you haven't got one, this is valid advice, if you already have an alt let's say 20+ well go ahaid and lvl it.
On the Part where i say that it's sad that bliz lowers the difficulty of Old Content And to my commenter on that:
It's not only the mounts... It's the heirlooms, recruit a friend, the quests, the leveltime (remember the 20-60 lvl nerf?) the nerfing of dungeons (byebye Mallet of Zul Farak) about EVERYTHING that was Vanilla has fallen away or is shrinking in a corner crying and hoping it won't get cut down! And YES it IS sad! I don't care that you have lvled 4 alts... i have 3x 60's 4x70's and 4x80's All leveled over the course of 4 years. And i Loved leveling them, Yes loved it. Why cause it made sense too! It made sense to Pug and wipe in silly lvl30 dungeons to know your class, it made sense to buy that blue lvl40 items since you would be using it 10hours instead the mere 2hours you'll be spending now? It made sense to swear at lvl40's with mounts, It made sense to love your Travel form, Ghost Wolf or Aspect of the Cheetah. What is left of it?
Absolutly NOTHING... And yes it's Sad... Newer Players will love the changes ofcourse, and people who want to blaze to endgame will love it. Personally I want to learn how to play my class before lvl80, I want to learn how to tank with my warrior in old dungeons, i want to heal ZulFarak with his hammer again. IF you want to take the easy road and love it? Be my guest. But don't say it's for the better, no, heeeelllll no, It's just because your to slow,tired,dumb, new, burned out, what ever. to do it the old way.
So here is what I and Half of the "old guard" want: Blizz make uss a VANILLA SERVER!
Some people want it easy, well do your thing.
Personally i want to raid Molten Core again, 40 man ragnaros, and raid 5hours at one piece cause there inst something like being saved. I want the absolute and total dispair agian when you see 20guys getting one hit because Fire Resistance mattered.
So this was my Rant for today. I want to say though that I don't mind that people want to play an easier game, just dont' think that everyone wants this. Some people want a challenge. If i Wipe 3 times at a boss i'm happy, cause then it's something worth trying, if you don't know tactics and still beat a boss... whats the fun in that? the cheer? the joy?
So my conclusion:
50% of the players want to take it easy = do yar thing
50% want to keep the game interresting, alive and Hard (in the context of wow at least) = These want the fun of the game.
