Worth getting into WoW now? - Page 4

post #31 of 45
Being Mt for a top 100 us/400 world 25man guild and playing since BC it's at the point of being boring and slow. Blizzard dropped the ball with Cata in terms of available content, releasing more "heroic" dungeons that top guilds don't care about and measly 7 boss dungeons that are a joke on normals and 10mans there just isn't enough there to keep people around which is why they're losing so many people. Honestly at this point if I wasn't in a semi-hardcore raiding guild and didn't feel like I had an obligation to my fellow raiders (tanks are hard to find, great tanks are even harder) I would be gone already.

If you like doing dailies and heroics over and over everyday and playing around with crappy unbalanced pvp it might keep your attention for a while. The best hope is to get good, actually "good" not decent and find a top raiding guild to get into.

I enjoy raiding a lot, and new stuff is about to go out so yeah, sign up.

Whoever said cataclysm is easy I'd like to see you on Heroic Rag
Allow me to clarify. Heroic raids are the exception to this rule. The truth of the matter is, there aren't too many people who are running heroic raids that ARENT hardcore gamers. Cataclysm did do one thing right. Any player of any competency level can find plenty to do. I just wish they'd come out with more end game 5 mans like they said they would.

Cataclysm has dumbed down a lot of the standard gameplay so that it IS easy, but that doesn't mean that a great player can't find a challenge. It just means that a new player can get into the game and find success easily. MOST players will never experience a heroic raid at 85.

Cataclysm is a joke, the hard part is finding people who are willing to actually get better and not drag the rest of the raid down, which is why my guild has been stuck at 25% P4 on heroic rag for weeks.

I don't mean to be a jerk, but this has to be said from the point of view of someone who played since beta...

If you think Heroic Rag is fun, you should have tried to battle Kael'thas (the raid boss not the 5 man) in Tier 4 and 5. Hardest encounter ever?

To this date Heroic Rag is the hardest boss encounter in wow, the thing with many of the older fights that a lot don't realize is that there were a lot of bugs or just plain screwed up mechanics that are what made the fights "hard", C'thun is a prime example, it was completely unbeatable because of game breaking bugs until blizz finally patched it. Even at level 85 Heroic Lich King still wipes 25man raids and I can guaruntee that Heroic Deathwing will be on a whole other level.

Side fact: Paragon(the top world guild) spent over 600 attempts before they could down Heroic Rag and today it still takes them a good 3 to 4 hours to down him(pre-lol FL nerf).

The thing is that questing level 1-20 is very basic, IMO you don't even see 1% of the game with that preview.

^This. Rift is a very solid game. Regular gameplay is on the casual/easy side, entry raids are a good progression ramp up, and the (current) endgame raid zone is pretty damn hard.

All in all, there is something for everyone (casual, raider, PVP'er), and Trion is doing a fantastic job at pumping out content. To date, there's been a major content patch about once a month.
