My dabbling in SW:Tor has made me realise a few things.
Firstly I love the conversation choices and wish all games came with them. Even without having them influence the story too much, it allows personality to shine through which in games like WoW where you might play through quests as many as 50 times (if you’re a true altaholic) would be wonderful. If you’re feeling snarky because you’ve just been presented with your 10th poop quest in as many days, why can’t we reflect that in the way we talk to NPCs. Although given how I’d treat daily quest givers… maybe it’s no surprise that feature hasn’t been added.
Secondly, space ships don’t really do it for me. I want gothic architecture or verdant forests full of cute critters.
I suppose that’s a round about way of saying I miss WoW which as a matter of fact I do. I’m planning on coming back to grab a Qiraji Guardling just because….. whether or not I’ll stay will depend on a few things. The new pvp changes have me tossing and turning. Equality in terms of pvp gear doesn’t bother me in the slightest, my blue geared alts have taken on plenty of purpled up characters and won. No my issue is that of progression. I like to tick boxes and seeing your stats rise is a massive part of WoW, at least it always has been for me. Without that, I’m not sure the game will still have it’s draw. Sure, there is the raid finder but I’ve got a enough sources of stress and negativity without adding a voluntary one to the mix. A casual guild might work but given the sort of work I’m going to be doing, there will be some nights when all I want to do is crawl into a ball and others when it’s a case of sod killing pixels, I want to take my rage out on other players in battlegrounds. We will just have to see.
That said, if I return to WoW in any serious sense, I don’t think it will be as a healer.
