Worth getting into WoW now?

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 
So I used to play wow on private servers awhile back, 2-3 years ago and thought it was fun. I quit and now I am thinking about buying the game. I just don't know if I will be wasting $45 which is for the battle chest and 1 month membership. Or would money be better spent on diablo 3 when it comes out?

In my opinion...With games like Rift available...Not really.

It might be worth you looking around...

Didn't really get into it, but had a lot of friends who recently quit since playing it from the time it came out. Read about how Blizzard is essentially dumbing the game down after losing a ton of users and my friends basically confirmed it. Most are waiting for D3.

my opinion coming from someone thats played WoW since launch and just recently quit for good

no its not worth it

the game is fun for short periods of time...but at the end of the day unless you are playing with a bunch of friends and are in a good raiding guild...there isnt much else to do other than level characters and farm for mats...do dailies...run heroics

if you want to try it out and see if its the same ole same ole...try the free trial...you wont have your main account but you can see if you have the same flame you did for it back when you played

If you're a casual fan of gaming and MMOs then yeah it's a good time to get into it.


Heroic (raiding) content still poses challenges for a lot of guilds.

I played for about 4 years, between 2005 and 2009, and on and off since.

It's not worth getting into now. It feels as if the devs have kinda given up on it to focus their attentions elsewhere.

Maybe try Rift, or hold out a couple of months and play SWTOR.

I played for years and was a high level raider... but the game has become too easy to satisfy the casual fan.

If you are a Star Wars fan at all, wait for SWTOR... I played on the beta and it is much deeper than WoW

played it for the first 2 years, quitting was the best decision i ever made. unless you literally have no life, 1-2 friends and NOTHING else to do, then go for it.

WoW amounts to 1 thing:

the biggest waste of money mankind has ever invested in.
