WoW for now

Well, I’ve killed Garrosh in LFR (Since I don’t raid that is as good as heroic for me!), I’ve finished the Celestial Tournament and I have 12 toons at level 90 (One of each class and two Warlocks) decked out in at least Timeless Isle gear.  With the new Refer-a-Friend program coming soon I see myself throwing a little bit more money at Blizzard and WoW for those four pets, but if there is no expansion soon I’m pretty much finished until Warlords is coming out.

I’m not actually all that excited for Warlords of Draenor to be honest.  I wasn’t blown away by anything in the panels.  Garrisons look like this expansions time sink.  I don’t really care about the lore.  I was really getting into the whole idea of the Burning Legion but this step back is like a punch in the face.  They wanted us to play some original Warcraft and rather than port the RTS they decided to throw all their developers at it.  Sure, we get 10 new levels, but I don’t think very many people were clamoring for this.

Pet announcements felt pretty forced, with no specifics at all.  I think they expected us to be happy with what we had, not realizing most pet collectors would already have either leveled their whole account with pet battles or gone the other direction and not cared about pet battling.  Oh you can maybe have some of your pets running around your garrison, and possibly breed pets (Merge them and get the breed you want with a chance at epics.).  If that goes live, which it really doesn’t feel like it will, it will probably only work with wild pets, since all the really rare pets are unique and no one wants to waste a Lil’ Ragnaros.

I don’t even care that there is no new race or class.  The new character models don’t really affect me since I wear full armor.

I’m not sure what I was expecting.  To be blown away like I was in 2011 with the MoP announcement.  I got more excited about the inventory changes than anything else they announced.  Finally I can get my toy items out of my bank.

Well, hopefully the RaF announcement beings some joy back to the game, but if things stay the way they are now I might, for the first time in my WoW life, unsubscribe.
