So I attempted to try World of Warcraft again after 13 years and played Classic for about 4 days. I remember now why this game never captured my interest for long back in 2006. It was primarily a solo experience. I leveled two characters to level 15-16 and I only grouped twice in the approximately 20 hours of game play. I know there is raid content and more and more dungeons as you level, but I want a fully social game from beginning to end and my experience has already been soured.
Having to match quests and find others that are following the same quest paths that you are just sucks. I’d prefer just to grind and explore with friends then do quests all the time. What I loved about EQ was the need for grouping for extended periods of time.
I’m going to be around on the boards here and there but you likely won’t see me much until Pantheon hits alpha. I mainly like MMORPGs for the social aspect and accomplishing goals/exploring/just goofing around with guildies and groups. I’m hoping Pantheon is able to recapture that for me. I’ll see you all around and won’t disappear in the meantime.
