I've seen quite a lot of what the game has to offer, but I think that Blizzard's masterful MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) is in big trouble and needs to be fixed. Here are ten reasons why World of Warcraft sucks and what Blizzard needs to do immediately to fix the game and save it from losing customers.

Except it isn't losing customers... its gaining them. They must be doing something right.

That being said, I agree with maybe 1/3 of what he said. I play a druid, too. They get screwed because they aren't as vocal as some of the other classes.

Druid tears are the most delicious.



Seriously though, 4 people can still beat on a druid and the druid can take out half of them still.

Before they could do the same + run away at any moment. Oh and heal with lifebloom 20% better.


Druids are still insanely overpowered especially in 2v2's.
  1. Pounce stun 3 seconds.
  2. Feral charge 4 seconds.
  3. Bash Bash 4 seconds.
  4. Cyclone 6 seconds.
  5. Entangling roots 6-10 seconds immobilized +dmg tick.
  6. Nature's grasp 35% chance to cast entangling roots on target when struck (talents it can be 100%)

That plus fast movement and impossible to keep snared/rooted?

Not to mention they can heal up while beat on in bear using rage!

Then switch out and throw hots up while your stunned and switch right back!

Now, the other stuff..


Yes we need new BGs, but they have them in the works for the new expansion. They are actually taking time to FIX the current BGs too!
Premade groups now match up with other premades. AV is fair now. No more turtling in AV or WSG.


Flying mounts don't work in Azeroth because they weren't designed to. Period. You can get around very easily still with FREE portals in shatt. Epic flying mounts? Yes they are a bit expensive but with all the daily quests put in you could have the gold fairly quickly if you work at it. Better yet, work the auction house!

Gnome healers.... LOL!! Not even touching that one.




Fear overpowered??? LOL!! Only coming from a druid. Fear is more likely to break from damage. (meaning you are probably not completely feared before you die) Trinkets break fear, it's cleansable, and only priest and locks can instant fear. (warriors too but their's breaks on ANY dmg) Fear has diminishing returns like all CC too so after 3 fears you are immune. NOT overpowered.


Leveling is a pain?? They actually reduced the amount needed for lvls 1-60 and upped quest xp earned. It is pretty easy and there's people who speed level 1-70 in under 2 days. Stop crying and read a guide or two.


World PVP on a PVP Server does happen and you can get honor from it but it's less then just going in the battlegrounds. You probably didn't like getting ganked while leveling either too I'm sure. PLUS it adds load to the world servers causing lag felt by everyone. The main thing on a PVP server is you have the 'OPTION' to kill someone most places.


Been playing wow a long time.

95% of people i have come across on WoW in the past 5 months, say they strongly dislike the game and are playing it while waiting for Warhammer. Theres a guild on my server called "I Arena till Warhammer". Me being an almost 3 year player (i'm not a 40yearold virgin, im a retired navy vet and have alot of free time btw) am also leaving the game for Warhammer when it releases. the age of warcraft is coming to an end. But with Blizzards soon release of Starcraft 2, which will be one of the biggest game events in history especially in asia, I don't think they should fear to much.
This guy is just someone whining about things he doesn't like that effects his gameplay.

WoW is ok. I got bored with it after level 40 so I quit. I also didn't like the monthly payments. The thing that WoW has going for it is that a lot of people get addicted to it and just keep paying, err, playing.
