I still don't understand how people can play that much. How do you pay the bills with no job that you obviously don't have playing that much. It baffles me to this day.

Well it may come as a shock, but I don't play nearly as much as one may think. I put in maybe 2 to 3 hrs a day, sometimes more if I have the day off and oh thats right, I DO HAVE A JOB. As I will reiterate one more time, I play this game for fun. If I get some cool loot in the process, thats icing on the cake. But it is by no means necessary.

It was not directed at anyone here in particular but it seems like the hours required for geting the highest rank basicaly require you too forgo your entire life for WOW. It's impossible to have a job and get the top ranks unless you have multiple people playing the same account. It was just an observation more than anything not really judging anyone although by my comments you can figure out how I feel about it. I think it sucks that blizzard would require this much for someone to reach that rank because they are basicaly saying we want you to completely ruin your life to make that rank.

I think I've hit burnout. We're progressing in Naxx but I just don't care anymore and I find myself praying for each raid to end and wishing I was doing other things. It just sucks because I'm the guild's MT and Warrior class leader so I feel obligated to keep raiding. We are unfortunately short on decent warriors at the moment.

Burnout really sucks, I should know. I hit it a couple times earlier this year, except only it wasn't because the content was getting stale(well, maybe it was . . .) but because as a guild we were not progressing. We had this huge guild merger from 3 or 4 of the largest guilds on the server, and we can't even get past the first boss in BWL? Are you kidding? Too much drama and people being selfish, so eventually I canceled my account because I didn't see myself having fun with the game anymore.

Months later, and believe it or not my interest has been invigorated. I try to shy away from the raids but I absolutely LOVE to PvP. One thing in the whole game that doesn't instantly put me to sleep, and it actually takes some skill heh.

A break from the game is definitely a good idea if you ever get burnt out. Go out with friends, play some other games(gasp!), get some exercise. All good things.

I hate raiding. BGs are where its at. I have a 29 priest with 1500hp and 3k mana. His name is Snots and alliance hates him and I like it that way. I also have a 29 rogue named Defjam. He has 24.22% chance to crit.

I hope to see you guys in cross server BGs. Get ur self a twink and meet me on the battlefield. The 20s are a great bracket.

Additionally, Paladins and Shaman can finally be designed the way they were intended. "The core reason for us to share the Paladin and Shaman across the faction is so that we can differentiate them more. The way it stands right now, in the live game it's very difficult for us to do one thing with one class without doing something very similar to the other class. If the Paladin needs to get better tanking abilities then we need to do similar things with the Shaman. Or if we add more DPS to the Shaman we have to do similar things to the Paladin," Chilton says.
In other words, we're to fuking lazy and decided to rehash so old classes and call them new for each side. lame.
