i've heard that a lot, but women in WoW weren't exactly pornstars.

if you want a game where the female characters are basically flesh-objects for mouth-breathers, look at TERA. that is laughable.

I never understood the people that rolled undead and chose the ones with the bottom jaw missing. Who wants to look at that forever?

lol this game. truly terrible. dx10, first mmo with its sort of graphics, terrible performance.

huge grind and timesink, economy was fucked. took me until lvl 56 to be able to afford the basic mount i was on, designed for lvl40

https://screenshot.xfire.com/s/27441952-4.jpg

add to that the 'awesome' combo-beatemup combat system, which was amazing in pve and raid encounters, but then in PvP sucked so hard. hahahaha. the other player had to stand exactly still in one place for you to be able to finish the high-damage, intricate-combo moves, which took like 4-5 perfect sequenced keypresses to execute... plus the 3-4 second static animation cast time. truly fucking dreadful. and yet so many of us played it through gritted teeth, hunting for that WoW v2 wave.

have played about 4-5 terrible MMO's since then, all in the same desperate spirit. Warhammer online another notable laughworthy failure. i think TERA is probably the only one that has had any lasting 'hooky' appeal, and that's pretty much all down to the beautifully tweaked combat system.

i still have my WoW account. it was valued at over £1000 back in vanilla/early TBC days though, what with the pvp rank and all. it probably lost value actually after that point, because i never really went at it with the same enthusiasm and tenacity again. my spirit was broken after they betrayed the vanilla hardcore players :< i raided most of endgame TBC, but on a mage character instead. after that my main rogue character barely even tickled endgame. wotlk endgame was a snooze.

Mine is still there. With Cata. Srt of tempting, but then I remember I want to play for the nostalgia.

i think i've resubbed 3 times now in the past and never stuck at it for longer than 3 days. now that is a waste of $9.

Every once in a while i will play a free server to get my nostalgia fix. A good reminder of what I'm not missing.

well it's impossible to miss anything on those servers. if they were any good i would be playing vanilla WoW right now. they are not. perhaps thankfully, for my time and soul.

I have no idea what you're talking about so here's an armored bear with an ent on top of its back.

I've never understood the aesthetic of undead gear in a lot of games. Does everything they touch get warped by rust and entropy or something? Did some part of their zombie brain forget how to oil their armor and sharpen their blades? That's one of the reasons I like Dark Souls. You can look like a withered mummy, but your gear is pristine.

It was meant to be funny. There's nothing less intimidating than a druid in tree form They can't do anything but heal and walk slowly. The bear makes it scary looking, haha. That was one of my own screenshots from back in the day, my character was a restoration (healer)  druid.

I lost all my screenshots...

I had an undead warrior, mainly for PvE, but was getting back into PvP near the end. I quit in may '09 (knowing this date often makes me feel like an addict who looks back at his last hit with great nostalgia and regret) and haven't resubbed since. I played it for about 1h on a friend's account not too long before the panda release and what a joke that game has become. The transforming gear was the first thing I noticed, as my friend proudly showed me how he did old raids solo (one's I actually worked for) over and over again to get a cool looking set whilehis actual gear was 50/50 blue and epic. The cities were full of people in t2 gear, all flying on sparkly winged dildos. It's like they're giving mounts away, rather than having to actually achieve something for it or grind for hours and hours.
Played a couple of battlegrounds and you just couldn't tell who was strong and who wasn't because everyone was wearing a set of some sorts without actually owning it. The amount of HP people have have become ridiculous and the old simple PvP experience just felt severely watered down.

Such a sad state of affairs because I love a good MMO.

And yes, undead ruins every cool piece of gear. I regret playing that character, but once that regret hit me I was too far in.

kampff man you should move on. what's the harm in everyone being able to change all their gear's appearance? it promotes individuality and free expression. not everyone looking uniform, like some mmorpg of 1984. lol see what i did there. literary reference.

sorry you feel that way

last time I played was wotlk s3 (or season 7 it was called I believe). It was the only season I played in wotlk, was fun. Haven't played since. Played during season 2 and 4 in TBC and played most of vanilla.

since vanilla wotlk s3 was the only time pvp was actually fun. Didn't bother much with pve because imho all of it after AQ was shit. Everything that came after s3 was shit, never bought cata or pandaria, haven't had an interest in the game since.

Actually I've lost interest in MMOs and RPGs entirely, played WoW so much that whenever I try a new game in which I have to level up or accumulate gear I'm done with that concept again within 10 mins of playing.

i sunk a decent amount of time into WoW alternatives because of the mythical 'end-game' messianic faith that gets promoted in these games. everyone busily grinds out the leveling experience - no matter how terrible - with the fable of the promised land at the end of it, a rich cornucopia of end-game treats and new mindblowing MMO experiences. of course what normally happens is people race to maxlevel, which is quite a fun and exciting thing to do in any new MMO tbh, and then get to end-game and discover its nothing but tumbleweed and not-quite-done-yet content. the game is normally empty by 2 months in, whilst the MMO's devs/publishers continue hyping the game's novelties on twitter and facebook, increasingly detached from reality as more and more players become jaded and ask "wtf"? by 6 months in they've rinsed enough cash out of the promotion, and they downsize it to like 2 servers. i've seen this cycle repeat a depressing number of times.

the only MMO that has kept me for longer than that normal routine is TERA, and simply because the combat system is addictive and a joy. it seemed to integrate all the best (new) features of WoW and other current-gen MMO's into a game that had really seamless combat. the ultra-korean setting and terrible release schedule between guild wars 2 and diablo 3 meant it hasn't really rocketed over here in the west... but it is incredibly polished. the combat alone is worth trying it out. it even makes guild wars 2's incredibly-overhyped new combat/movement system seem basic and shit.

in between WoW's amazing epic feeling and TERA's next-level combat, i really think it's going to be hard to find an MMO that can beat it (especially in a timeframe where i still even care about playing computer games, or have the time). basically i'll just need a relaunch of vanilla WoW, or another korean TERA clone that manages to scrape more of a buzz/movement than the current 1.5m playing TERA.
