I played Vanilla WoW in Summer 2008 and got bored of it within 3 months, I got up to level 45. I then played it again on 2 seperate occasions on 2 seperate account, was bored within 4 months on both occassions and don't have access to any of my original accounts anymore, not a big deal, only had 1 main character for all of them anyway. I ended up playing world of warcraft for 452 hours total.
The reason why I am tempted to return so often is because I really like WoW's lore and faction oriented pvp. What is really important to me in a MMO is lore, if a game doesn't have lore I am interested in then I probably won't play it unless there was something unique about it like sandbox features or unique gameplay. I thought about Archeage but it is so pay to win and such a grind that I doubt I will ever play it. Then there is TERA, the major problem I have with TERA is pvp is not so faction oriented, you can do Alliance pvp but in the game world, every guild is in one of the 3 Alliances but that does not matter in world pvp since you can become an outlaw and guilds are able to fight another guild of the same Alliance.
This is what leads me back to WoW, since it has faction based pvp/world pvp, Emerald Dream is also a high pop World PVP server and the only World PVP server that has an almost even number of Horde/Alliance on it so it would be the best one for World Pvp.
Does anyone think I should return to WoW? I tried playing it earlier this year but leveling was so boring, I guess the only way to know for sure would be for me to play WoW for about 50 hours so I can experience end game raids/battlegrounds/arenas and world pvp at max level. I suppose this would be the only way to determine if I wanna play WoW again or not.
