Going Back to WoW

Filed under: Games,World of Warcraft — Cranky Sysadmin @ 10:08 pm

Well, eve-online is an interesting game, but having no friends who play makes it seem a little empty. That’s my main reason for going back to WoW, but there are a few others:

  • The interface is a bit clunky. There are very few opportunities for keyboard shortcuts as far as I can tell. There are no obvious ways to make macros. The in-game browser feels like the old Mosaic browser. Window resizing and column resizing works in strange ways.
  • Maintenance every day is a pain even though it’s short. I’m a morning person, so this effects me more then some.
  • The level grind is replaced by an ISK/materials grind, and a lot of waiting for skills to improve.

Sadly, I tried to login to WoW for the first time in a while and after a long patch download, there is an “extended maintenance” due to mailbox corruption. Well, hopefully things will settle down after Wrath releases.
