    Playing WoW 1.12.1, full vanilla blizzlike server with no donations and 1x rates for everything just like wow was in retail.

    Why? because its the best mmorpg ever made up untill years from now.

    Wizard101 and login and out of DDO.

     

    Why?  Nothing else interests me right now -- these are easy fallbacks for something to do.

    FF14 Alpha that I just got access to this morning. Tthats about it, since pretty much all the other mmo's that have come out this year have just been boring wow-clone solo games pretty much. Bought Tsw quit after a day or 2 due to how generic and boring the game was, got in the SWTOR beta, got bored day 1 since the game was pretty much a direct copy and paste of world of warcraft with just a star wars skin over it. Did some research and was told that it never really changes, so never bothered with it. Rift.. yet another biliant wow copy and paster, hell even their most recent expansion sounds like that, just copy and pasted burning crusade and given it a facelift. Tried GW2 beta, thought it was ok, but its another of those mmo's where you'll hit lv cap solo in a few days then there is nothing worthwhile to do.

    Problem with mmo's today is 3 fold: 1 they are far to soloable, 2: they all play the damn same with very little if any diffrences. and 3, pointless endgame, prime example is wow, I never seen the point to raiding in wow, because the gear serves no purpose, there is nothing you can't use it for. Unlike dark age of camelot before spellcrafting(or whatever the skill was that allows u to make a perfect gearset for your char), where raid gear was the best pvp gear, no one complained they raided for their gear then went to the frontier to make use of said raid gear, smashing in the faces of the other 2 enemy realms, taking keeps and castles, and also with the realm skill point system you could earn totally new abilities and such from points earned in pvp, insted of being dead end like wow is.

    All in all the last 2 years have been piss-poor for mmorpg's in general, with nothing even remotely decent being released.

    Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

    A. Proven right (if something bad happens)

    or

    B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

    Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

    True that, wow was good before the expansions came out, thats when the game started rolling downhill fast. Back when only the elite could raid insted of wow today where any retard/moron/idiot can raid, and be successful. Then again other than wow classic, the raiding in wow really has no purpose anyway, your char never gets new abilities, and the raid gear doesn't really have any use anymore.

    3. best dungeons i have ever run in any game, barre none.

    4. 3 spheres of activity, meaning there are other things to do besides mass extinction/genocide quests

    5. Diplomacy sphere: creating city wide buffs for players, trading and selling information, nice card based minigame

    6. Crafting sphere: only crafting in a game ive done that's been worthwhile since SWG (though its by no means the same)

    7. amazing array of classes and races (i love that the healer classes actually have dps potential as part of their healing abilities)

    8. beautiful scenery

    Too bad the char models and most other models look like total ass, they just seemed way to block-like to me.

    A little GW2, but mainly WorldAlpha.  I'll let you figure out why! :)

    WoW-

    Not any of my 85 or 85+ toons, re-rolled a brand new level 1 Warrior on a new server (one that said New Players not even sure what one.)

    Found a level up guild, lots of people on that are very talkative.

    Playing in a new way - very little questing at all, think I've done questing like 2 zones... No hierlooms.

    Lots of trade skills, trying to keep all 6 of my professions even with my level and so far doing well.

    Level 50 and all of my 6 Professions are at or around 300 (Blacksmith, Mining, Archaeology, Fishing, Cooking, First Aid.)

    Run dungeons as a Tank or DPS, but not chaining them maybe 1-2 each play session.

    Spend a lot of time out in the world fishing, gathering, exploring... you get great XP from Mining/Archaeology now days. Also getting some good XP farming mob for Cooking mats to compliment the time fishing.

    Quest hub grinding and/or dungeon grinding is a choice in WoW - that's for sure. It may be the fastest way to level, but it's not the way I'm choosing to play and I'm actually really enjoying it.

    Thats exactly how i played wow, played swtor, and am currently playing rift. Its a nice way to play mmos. I wish more people played mmos the way they want to instead of feeling like they are forced to play in some other way they dont enjoy.
