When i started playing WoW in late Mists of Pandaria i thought i’ll play an expansion or two, i started with Warlords of Draenor which i liked even when Blizzard abandoned the expansion, i loved the quests and the stories more than other expansions, i loved the class design and i still think WoD Shadow Priest is the best version of the class/spec.
Then comes Legion with it’s artifact weapons and the end of the Legion story, i’m fond of Surmar even when it frustrate me so much, i think WoW players who played it back then still hate to hear “an illusion, what are you hiding?”, in Legion i started playing a Hunter and i loved it so much, beast mastery in Legion was overpowered.
BFA was a mixed bag, didn’t like the main story and didn’t like that old gods have one patch instead of a whole expansion, i liked the quests and the side stories, i liked the zones and the music, in general i found BFA fun to play, the Azerite gear was never a problem for me.
In Shadowlands i loved the leveling but when i reached the end game i felt like i’m done, i’m repeating the same pattern like the old expansions, and i’m not having fun while playing Shadowlands, so i stopped and started playing other games.
i also went back to Classic and started leveling a hunter and i liked that a lot, it seems Shadowlands endgame was overwhelming for me, it felt like a homework instead of playing, while Classic with its simplicity was easy to understand and enjoy.
But there is a chance that Blizzard will announce The Burning Crusade soon in Blizzconline, and they may choose to wipe the servers and make everyone start from level 1 or 58, also Square Enix announced Endwalker, the next expansion for Final Fantasy XIV, that made me want to go back and keep playing to start the expansion with everyone else.
Of course there is a good chance that i get sick of doing dungeons 😅 but i’ll see, at least i want to finish the Heavensward expansion and right now i’m in the middle of the story line.
So i’m done with WoW for now, i may come back for TBC classic or maybe the expansion after Shadowlands, until then i’ll play FFXIV and other games.
