Anyone going to jump in again when this comes out?

#1 Posted by RE_Player1 (7574 posts) -

Even though I only played for about 2 months when Cataclysm launched I did enjoy coming back to WoW after a long period of being away and I am actually thinking of picking this up even to just experience that rush of new people in the new zones for the first month or so. Also playing with GB duders is always fun. I do worry I will be bored however because after playing Old Republic for a couple weeks I do expect a little more in the story department from MMOs now. Anyone else contemplating getting this in September and throwing your life away for a bit?

I'll probably buy one month of game time and see all the new stuff.

Not when it comes out probably, but eventually sure.
 
Can't stay away.

After playing the beta I discovered I'm a furry. Something about those chubby asian women. I'm probably getting into it again and re-rolling my most of my characters to be female pandaren (I was up to around 20+ characters 80+, probably 14 of those were 85? =/)

The story in the Pandaren starting area's pretty good. I seem to have liked most of the WoW lore though. Most of my friends who played ToR said that WoW had a much better story too, but that's all anecdotal and I've not played ToR myself :(

I'm playing right now and I'll be getting it.

As someone who raised a WoW character through TBC and WOTLK and got really bummed out by how lame Cata was, I'm not looking forward to Pandaria from what I played of the beta. Over simplified talent trees for noobs are not cool. No one wants that shit (from what I've seen anyway)

Guild Wars 2 will be alive and kicking by the time Pandaria comes out and I wholeheartedly expect all of my attention to be placed on that instead.

Played the beta there for a while; now the account just kinda sits there, but I'll probably head back in for a bit if it does not interfere with school too much.

No way, Guild Wars 2 is just so much better than WoW, I can't go back to that combat.

Yeah I'll probably do it, But not so sure that I should..

#11 Posted by Tylea002 (2295 posts) -

PANDAS. GOD DAMNED PANDAS.

(Probably)

#12 Posted by Morningstar (2231 posts) -

No, I will never go back..

#13 Posted by bemusedchunk (711 posts) -

Yes.

Probably, I kind of like the asian inspired setting of Pandaria, and the female Pandaren are too cute :).

Nothing they do will ever get me back into WoW. So over it at this point.

#16 Posted by psylah (2183 posts) -

I'll play again when I get the urge to tank, which shouldn't be for a while since I just stopped.

The Scroll of Resurrection got me convinced to come back, having a ton of fun with dragon soul heroics atm so likely i will still be playing for MOP

I honestly thought that this had been out for a few months already..... So no, lol.

#19 Posted by Xymox (2111 posts) -

I tried the beta for a bit but it didn't do much for me. I think I'm just done at this point. Can't wait to jump into GW2 though and start running in a random direction.

I'm one of those (seemingly) rare people who only started playing WoW a couple of months ago. Literally, booted it up for the first time. I've got my main up to level 63 now and I'm definitely looking forward to starting a Pandaren character for my second character. Not gonna roll a monk - everyone will be doing that. Thinking of a Paladin. A Pandalin.

#21 Posted by BabyChooChoo (4743 posts) -

Definitely. I'm not much for WoW's style of raiding these days, but I'll get it and love it.

#22 Posted by SockemJetpack (412 posts) -

Never! I don't need WoW to have a good time man. *scratch scratch*

#23 Posted by LethalKi11ler (1420 posts) -

I just renewed 2 days ago lol Just to get all set and ready for the expansion and finish off some content I missed in Cataclysm

#24 Posted by Arbie (1449 posts) -

I keep telling myself I know what will happen: I'll be hooked for a couple of weeks and then most likely end up bored. But still, I'm undecided. Plus, I want to be a panda!

Of course I am, but I don't see my life being thrown away. I have way too many responsibilities now that I didn't have when WoW was a large part of my life. I am really interested in trying the new systems like Pet Battles and the Challenge Dungeons. I really feel those are great additions that I don't need to dedicate my entire life to stay competitive. (Like Raiding and Arena)

Perhaps ... pandahaps..............

Yeah probably.

#27 Posted by RE_Player1 (7574 posts) -

Well I'm back in. I hope the official GB guild, the Bomb Squad, gets more people on once this expansion hits. It used to be so alive but now it's well not as alive although it looks like some extremely dedicated players are hanging on which I'm glad as someone who was there in the early days of the guild. Got back through the Scroll of Resurrection and plan on playing as Pandaria ramps up. Now that Old Republic has gone free to play I don't mind letting that collect dust for a bit.

#28 Posted by SmilingPig (1341 posts) -

No.

#29 Posted by GunslingerPanda (4847 posts) -

Yep.

Might even pop in again when the inevitable pre-Pandaria patch hits.

#30 Posted by MyNiceIceLife (634 posts) -

probably not. comes out during my last semester and by the time i'm done most of my friends will be done with it if they decide to go back to it.

#31 Posted by RE_Player1 (7574 posts) -

@Anwar: I said maybe too and I already got a time card and pre-ordered Pandaria... I'm so weak.

#32 Posted by rentfn (1283 posts) -

I am. My buddy and I were deep into playing Burning and Lich King. We dropped out towards the end of Lich and came back for Cata for awhile. I think we will do the same with this one. I hope so, I just pre-ordered it.
