Well, here we are, about to settle into that last, exciting week before Guild Wars 2 goes live. One common complaint I hear about GW2 is the supposed "lack of endgame", but there have been many threads discussing what is or isn't endgame in GW2. So here's a different take, and my question to those of you currently involved in an MMO, hopefully at the "endgame"...
What, exactly, is the endgame in your MMO?
Now, I used to play WoW right up to before Cataclysm. Did Lich King raids at least three nights a week on my Pally tank and my hunter. But when I think of the endgame in WoW at the time (I haven't played since), all I can recall for endgame in WoW is two things... PvP and one raid. Yeah, there were dailies at 80... mind-numbing tasks to squeeze out a little more gold between raids, but all endgame was (again, that I can recall) was PvP (which I didn't bother with) and whatever the latest raid was. That was it.
Am I wrong in this, or do the current MMOs with their much lauded endgames really have very little endgame at all? For PvE, is there more than doing the latest raid, over and over and over again?
