What’s Next for Me in WoW
To update; I’ve run the table on the Fishing and Pet Battle Achievements. I’m also at 68 traits in my Artifact weapon and just a sliver from Exalted with the two new factions on Argus.
On a whim, I blew through some gold on tokens to get the Virtual Ticket and the very cool mount. Gladly spent and well received!
One thing that I have not done is the Ahead of the Curve achievement for killing Heroic KJ. Having earned AotC (all with the same raid team) on Lei Shen, Garrosh, Black Gate, Xavius, Gul’dan and Xavius: my expectation is to earn this Feat of Strength and it has not happened.
I think Blizzard may have blown it on the timing of their content. We should be deep into Heroic ToS and over-confident of our powers and learning the tactics of the fights – and we are not there yet. According to the Armory I have 18 kills on Garoth but only 2 kills on the Desolate Host and then it stops. We won’t count the wipes, okay?
Players are losing interest.
Whether it is that we have been running this raid for too long or not progressing or, I think, not over-geared from outside sources like Argus: players are starting to fade away. Piddling around on Alts or exploring Destiny 2.
I am not confident that I’ll be following a well-worn path for my raid team to get the Ahead of the Curve this time. That well-worn path is not giving us the means to achieve and succeed.
So, what’s next then? Having delved and dived into the time sinks of fishing and pet battling to completion, it is time to look around the game to see what else is offered.
For me, no, not PvP. I love it but it is a different game than PvE which I am steeped in deeply.
Right now, I’m leveling a Mage (piddling around on Alts) with the sole intention of earning a toy. Seriously, that is my time. I want the little flying saucer for my pet to ride around upon.
Not being the cocky player who has killed Heroic KJ effects me in a bad way. Following the Blizzard path of “time spent” has not taken me to my goal. I have five or six off-spec Legendary pieces — that, my friends is “time spent”. Those pieces have all been earned in my Resto spec, rolling over to off-spec because I’ve capped my spec’s options.
So, help me out. What is next for me? Have any ideas?
