Boredom is setting in... WoW, EQ2 and FR (MMO)

It's been awhile since I checked out MMO-Champion, I thought I'd peek in and see whats cookin'. It seems like a lot of changes are in the works for WoW. Nothing new there! The ever changing World of Warcraft, right? So, I found some interesting things happening on the PTR 3.3.

A few things caught my eye. Lay on Hands can no longer be cast on yourself.W-w-hat?! I actually only ever really need use this on the tank if the sh*t hits the fan. I suppose it's no big deal, but seriously, why now, after five years?! That is something I find myself asking a lot this year about all the changes in WoW. Some for the better some not so much. A new tutorial has been added, after five years I think everyone knows how to play! I jest! Cool I suppose for those who are late in joining the game. Daily Heroic and normal dungeon quests have been removed. These quests have been replaced with weekly raid quests. I don't know if I like this idea or not.

Dungeon System: This feature has replaced the Looking For Group tool and provides all-new dungeon party creation functionality. Players can join as individuals, as a full group, or a partial group to look for additional party members.Groups using this tool will be able to teleport directly to the selected instance. Upon leaving the instance, players will be returned to their original location. If any party member needs to temporarily leave the instance for reagents or repairs, they will have the option to teleport back to the instance. Players can choose the Random Dungeon option. Sounds pretty nice.

Hallow's End Achievement. "Since getting all of the masks is just another achievement and not something required for the meta-achievement, we are okay with this remaining as-is. Yes, it may take a couple years of doing the Hallow's End events to get it done but that just puts it along side things like Bloody Rare and Frostbitten." A blue quote there. Those masks are currently what will hold me back from the ahievement. I have a few more things I need to do, until I get closer to getting all the masks, I'm not going to bother.

Just a few things I thought were worth mention, tons of info on MMO-Champ, check it out if you haven't. Currently my connection is a P.O.S. I have trouble doing 25 mans because of it. This is nothing new. I've tried to stick to heroics and 10 mans because of it. Yesterday I figured I'd give it another shot and try Ony 25. Bad idea. I kept getting disconnected. So it's stick to 10 mans till I move, or wait to do much of anything till I move. I seem to suffer worse in WoW, when my connection gets crummy, than any other game. It really is affected big time, where in other games it's not such a big deal.

Really this time I am just playing it cool with WoW. Boredom is really starting to settle in again. I'll just take it slow. I have a raid for tonight, I don't even know if I want to bother with, if I'm going to disconnect on and off. Some nights it's great. Thing is I never know when it will or won't be. Anyhow, I dunno maybe I really should just quit till the expansion comes out?

I was reading the EQ2 forums last night and saw people there complaining about being bored. WTH people! You get an expansion every year!!! Class changes? O-M-G, try having your class balanced around PvP when you are mostly PvE. I'm not making fun, really. I know things do get boring in MMOs, look at me the big game hopper. I'm going to give this game another chance. I've decided it's as good a time as any to jump back in and try to catch up. I always liked this game a lot. I had a really nice guild, hope I still do. I've been gone for several months though. I don't know if I should pick up my 43 SK or my 32 necro.. bleh decisions. I don't really want to tank, might be easier than I thought to decide! Yes I'm still only a pup in this game. I do like a lot of things about though. So tonight I get to patch... yay!

I've not had a chance to hop into Free Realms the past two days. I don't plan on leaving this one anytime soon. It may take a backseat to catching up in EQ2 though. I'll see how things go. Do you get to where you think you want to play something but decide you really don't? I think WoW and I will always have a love-hate relationship ;)

Till next time peeps! Thanks for reading!
