Hey lads and lasses,
This is gonna be a bit of a wall of text and mostly based on personal experience so please take what i say with a pinch of salt.
I’ve been thinking for a while on this and was wondering if others felt a bit like I do when it comes to WoW these days, if playing the game has you come back to certain parts of it and maybe prefer them over the current activities.
I’ve played the early days of vanilla and enjoyed WoW back then from dungeons , to roleplay , pvp and raiding back then. I took a hiatus when the MoP beta hit and the last few people i knew quit WoW and came back roughly mid-legion when enough time had passed for me to get that sense of discovery again to keep my curiosity and interest and have played since.
I’ve had great fun since leveling characters on a new server, exploring all the new dungeons and zones, going for transmog runs in raids i never got to see the inside of before and getting to know the features that formed the core of each expansion ive missed. Due to playing through especially draenor when legion was already out i never experienced that situation of being stuck to the garrison and therefore never really ended up disliking it as I wasnt confined to it for as long as others to name one of the things.
Now we’re in bfa, ive pushed several characters to 120 when it released did a couple dungeons, island expeditions , pvp matches and did my first mythic dungeon actually with siege of boralus which was quite a thrill.
8.1 and 8.15 hit now and I havent really kept up with gearing much still being stuck at a low 300~ as i divided my playtime across to many characters and here comes the point i struggle with a bit and would like to ask about:
Older content for me turned out more interesting than newer. It felt often more easily accessable. Ive had great fun doing something like catching up on order hall campaigns and the like and whilst i have a great interest in the current bfa campaign for its story its gated behind rep. Warfronts which i wanted to try being gated behind ilevel and pvp in legion awarded pretty decent equipment that could even war or titanforge which kept me playing which bfa for all i know doesnt do.
Is anyone else having that same issue of leaning towards older content rather than pushing through the newer to keep up with whats probably the main pack of players and what would you suggest for someone that does need to catch up not to feel left behind in a way?
