    Not because of some elitist mentality. I don't raid, I don't do Arena, and I just play casually with some friends. We do Battlegrounds, run an instance once in a while, and help out lowbies in the guild, just general stuff.

    But after playing the Beta, I've really lost a lot of interest. I became bored, especially with the Death Knight, and trust me the class if fun, I love it, but I think Blizzard is making a huge mistake of dropping your Death Knight, fresh out of one the most epic quest lines you can do short of an Instance event, right back into old and boring content. I found myself bored by level 61 with my Death Knight because here I am, back in Outlands, for the 3rd time with a character, killing the same Fel Orcs, fighting against the Burning Legion...when hours ago I was swearing an oath to help my faction fight off the coming Scourge Invasion from Arthas. It really killed my drive to play as a Death Knight, especially after seeing my armor set replaced just a few levels into Outlands with random colored ugly looking armor pieces from quest rewards and drops.

    I'm not trying to be a downer on anyone looking forward to it. Like I said, the Death Knight is an awesome class no doubt, and the Northrend content is good, but don't play a Death Knight if you don't want to be let down early on. I've seen outland enough and I don't feel that the Death Knight should be forced to see that content again. Blizzard needs to create some Zones in Northrend, targeted for the Death Knights (hell make it contested too) that will take you from 60-70 without having to return to Outland after the Battle at Light Hope Chapel.

    Well, Hopefully for those who have never gotten the chance to do outland...

    <---------- right here

    The death knight will be a bit better.... praying here... otherwise there is no point for me to play anymore, as I'm really sick of leveling and I always hit a spot at around 51 where I can't stand to level at all.

    WoW started getting boring over 1 1/2 years ago. PvE was the only good thing in WoW. WAR has a much better PvP system but then again the game is built around PvP.

    WAR is gradually killing my interest in WoW. PvP done in a great way, with fabulous quests and lore, and an almost ending list of stuff to do. Probs the first MMO I've played where I feel no need to grind to kill a few levels or a bit of time.

    I grew bored of WoW quite quickly after just under a year, I couldn't see any way for it to improve itself without a massive redesign. There's just too much boring grind, if you're not grinding for levels, you're grinding for reputation or loot. Bleh, glad to be rid of it. WAR sounds promising, I might check it out, is there an open beta for it?

    Agreed, I started playing really early, and it was great, then it just went down hill a while back, haven't played in ages now.

    I want to play WAR, but I really can't afford to mess up college this year :(

    World of Warcrack!

    Hmmm I was once an addict but realised that in fact, it is a silly game - rewarding time played rather than game skill....WoW is seriously broken and the new expansion will be more of the same "grind fest". What a waste of time and money....no wonder China made Blizzard set a game time limit......

    Don't get me wrong had a good crack playing the game - but you can not "beat the game", get a grip and stop playing (getting beat) by all the 13 year old boys!

    It is very disturbing when you look at the total game time played, BTW the graphics are rubbish.....

    I would say WoW REQUIRES you to be in a guild to get the full experience. From playing WAR so far, the makers have engineered the game so that it provides you with social gaming as a matter of course rather than something you need to do yourself.

    I love WoW. I've played it since it launched in the States, using an import version. Since then I've played it continuously on and off, with four or five month breaks between relentless 2-3month sessions. I think however it's getting a bit like stuff like CS, in that for new or non-hardcore players, the experience is becoming increasingly difficult to become a part of - going back to the guild point.
