I play on Thorium Brotherhood, am a Grand Master Special OPPS Engineer aaaaaand run a party toon that is loaded with fireworks and party stuff
I've never been much into the raiding and dungeons stuff, Its all for the adventure to me! But Cata killed all of that :\ Quests are EASY, Leveling is EASY, Everything is so EASY. I remember leveling in Vanilla/BC when I was 10, took me 1 year to get to lvl 60 because I took in the elements of the game and adventured the lands as an engineer. And because leveling consisted of a hell of a lot more work. (Major Role Player here)
Collected every old world schematic, every BC schematic (Goggles dont count!) and every WOTLK schematic (Goggles dont count again
You get every schematic in cata from the trainer, you can tell that Blizzard is catering to an audience that barely has to try to play the game.
But I still play off and on to just play in battlegrounds for a while.
Really im not the casual WoW player, Raiding is boring, PvP is boring after a while. Arena's are pointless, and quests and leveling is just boring because its so easy now.
Graphics are a little better now then before but the problem with getting awesome uber graphics into the game would be that the engine would need to be redone, more types of buildings would have to be created and all of that stuff which would make it harder for people to play with there machines hardware.
WoW really is the only MMO that I have found pure adventure in, all MMO's these days are just raiding and PVP'ing and easy leveling to get to that. So really I just play FPS's now. Crysis, BFBC2, Killing Floor, Alienswarm, TF2. And of course RTS games because I love complicated thinking
. Warcraft 3 (I am a good map maker too), CIV 5 and Age of Empires 3.
