Grind 80
Grind Heroics
Grind ez raids
Farm dailys
Gem/Enchant good gear
Do ez weekly crap
Get group together/Fly over
Get buffs/food/potions
Make a few attempts which may or may not give better gear
Hope everyone is online and not RL issues
Hope no one has to leave early
Hope there is no BS drama

Also there are TONS of waiting in 99% of guilds. If you have the same gear as the top guilds, could isntantly teleport and didnt have to do any of the rebuffing/running/trash and could just PLAY THE GAME most of that content would be cleared. Its just that there is so much garbage u have to do before you even play the game it makes it impossible for most people to do it.

PvE is easy. End of story. (PvP buggy and intentionally imba)

PvE is easy? Please link me your Yogg+0, LK 25H 0buff, or Rag heroic achieves (with relevant dates). Oh, you don't have any of those? Give me a break, a tiny portion of the population ever does heroic raids (>1%), the games doesn't need to be harder. People like you are so irrational, it's unbelievable. 7 days a week to kill 7 "easy" bosses isn't enough?

What? 90% of the old zones were completely redone. The only things re-used in Cata are ZG/ZA, and those were completely redone anyways. You'd have to be blind to not see the more work has gone into Cata than any previous X-pack.

Melee shouldnt be a problem its your skill and the game shouldnt be changed cuz you are bad. If anything you should be complaining about warlocks and pillars and the worst enemy of the hunter, BUGS. Its also impossible to find teams as a hunter b/c no one understands how they work, and any other class is better/easier to play with.

If you like pvp quit wow and play sc2. I am serious here, wow is nothing but frustration and grinding with very little pvp, and the pvp is imba and buggy. The hardest part of wow is finding a team of non******* who will stay together and actually play...

If you do decide to play here are some videos of mine to help you out. I was hunter 2400+ 2v2, was 2k+ with like 4 classes various comps/brackets. But dont play wow play sc2, you will thank me later. I got keybind and mods in there too which should still all work or have new versions.

...lol?

Don't play this MMO PvP! Play this RTS game!
Why not play.. I don't know.. both? If you like MMO-PvP, WoW is a great option. Is it entirely balanced? Of course not, there are 10 dynamic and vastly unqiue classes to "balance", and since Blizzard wants to keep adding new abilities, it'll never be perfect. Doesn't mean it's not fun.

So because I didnt do it makes it hard? I did enough pve to know what its all about and its ez retardation for idiots who think scripted material takes skill. Putting an apple in a bucket is hard if you have to go around the world 3x first. Otherwise its an apple in a bucket. I did most of wotlk content on priest and hunter. The only reason I did pve is for pvp gear. WoW is garbage, the pvp is imba and buggy, and pve is rofl pve. It still makes me laugh people think they are good because they beat scripted material, that never changes, that is designed to be beaten.

Damn you must not play any video games at all cause news flash they are all meant to be beaten hopefully to be fun while doing so and provide enough challenge you are looking for. Think how great Mario Bros would have been had no one ever been able to get past 1-1 not very I'm guessing.

Its not about game genre its about skillbased pvp where the better player wins and RNG is minimal. I made the mistake of thinking MMO pvp could be balanced and skill based but it never will be (at least in wow/eve/etc). Maybe in GW2 there will be skill based pvp but I dont have my hopes up. WoW is garbage unless it has good pvp, which it doesnt. They gave up on balancing 2v2 remember?

Blizzard refuses to make pvp and pve have seperate effects on abilities so they let retard pvers interfere with pvp and they REFUSE to balance or fix bugs. They are out of touch with the game and have no incentive to make a balanced game. And the classes are really homogenized now because they keep making everything the same like adding mortal strikes and other stuff to every class. I played wow for two years waiting for pvp balance and basic bug fixes, nothing happened. They only proved how out of touch with the pvp community and how they didnt understand anything at all.

Dont play MMO's at all if you want skillbased pvp. RTS and FPS is where its at. Bloodline Champions is a good game that is like wow Arena without all the garbage (although its dying and laggy for US).

Exactly, Mario = WoW. Except you would have to get 25 people to do it at the same time and you would have to gear out mario and spend 90% of your time grinding coins for boots and a hat.

I don't raid anymore haven't since Wotlk but it doesn't take much time to if you are competant and play with the same level of players clearing all of Ulduar or ICC in what like 3 hours. People make it seem like you need to spend 80 hours a week to be competitive when in fact you don't not even close if you just want to progress a max level character you can usually do so in like 5-10 hours a week most FPS/RTS players I know play that much if not way way more.

Although wow pvp isn't the best balanced it offers something unique that FPS and RTS PVP can't be compared to. As far as no skill needed you argument would then make you think that new players would be popping up and competing at tournaments since its so unbalanced skill means nothing yet when I look at tourneys for 3v3 I see alot of familiar names. Guessing it means the skilled players regardless of the level of balance are either lucky enough to have everything go the way they need it to or maybe they are just better then the rest?
