Do you play?

I have two 85’s doing their thing in Raid finder

My main changed her offspec from Disc to Holy so she would do better on metres in raid finder in case I ever wanted to impress someone enough to go into a normal DS  considering whats the point of this existence if I am not even considering to try to get the best gear available I can,   even if I am not raiding, but  this means I can’t PVP as disc,  so I have been Pvping as Shadow only  ( I would get laughed at if I went in as holy)

I miss playing in bg’s and arena as Disc. ( and yes this is a good argument for 3 specs!)

I miss playing.

I was pvping long past the need for points,  I would remember I was honor capped on occasion after getting geared up and spend it on enchanting mats.  Sure I had no real purpose bar the pure pleasure of playing,  but I would log in less, or late take more frequent breaks, do more creative things

My Horde hunter went from DING 85! to Raid finder in just over a week.  I just gquit the random guild that invited me when I was a lobie because well they were never going to do anything organized, and I am hungering for purpose.  I should be getting better gear, I should be raiding, I should..

I have a shammy too that also hit 85 recently that I leveled like a demon – her aim is to suffer  through enough heroic dungeons so she can get that ever important Ilevel through gear or JP points for Raid finder so I can run her through as heals as well.

Does anyone play anymore?  Or is everyone grinding? Jp Points honor, gear.

We run the daily for the points,  we run whatever till we get to cap.  I like bringing my main Zahraah to stuff because well she is really the only toon I care about. I don’t care if she is JP capped, Honor capped, I want to play her.

I  have people close to me, and I do it to some extent –  on what ever alts have my fancy at the time,  that when there is a holiday boss/loot they grind all the toons through it to make sure that they all have a trinket, or the ring, or whatever.

I like playing to play. I shouldn’t need a purpose, or a cap,  or a goal,  I just want to play.

    You can use an addon called Talented to store additional specs and ActionBarSaver to save multiple profiles for your action bars. Because the respec fee is pretty cheap, you can use these two addons to swtich specs pretty easily. I have a PVP disc, PVE disc, PVE holy, and a shadow spec (although I only use that to educate myself since I only).

      I’ll look into that, I know its more of a procrastination barrier to change regularly into a 3rd spec, but the requirements to change bars, glyphs and healing mods to suit the different styles is deterrent in just being able to log in and play what you want.

    I like playing my priest even if she’s capped for Valor for the week. I just enjoy healing on her. I like my Shaman too, but I dread doing LFR on her. Mainly because I usually do low on the meters.

      I’m sure you will get better at your shammy 🙂 gear, experience, and having more people to compare to during a live fight/ different combinations of healers on a boss, my hunters was the same, but I tweaked them as I learned and they are doing much better

    I am enjoying tanking again for the first time in a while. But I must admit, I really only do it when the special bags are available. I enjoy it to the point where I’ll do it for the loot bags beyond my caps, but otherwise I am more happy to run around PVPing the crap out of people and blowing them up as a frost DK.

      with healers getting more loot bags lately they have given me some really nice gold boosts ( and some pots I will never use.. ) but if it gets more needed classes queuing more often then it is working very well as a motivator

    I rolled another rogue and pvp’d my way up to 72 just because it was fun. In the last couple weeks, I’ve stopped playing that toon mostly because it started to feel like a grind. So, yeah. I’m playing.

    i quit completely almost a year ago – things just got stale. I do miss my priest and all the work i put into him over the years… playing SWTOR now its fun atm we’ll see if it pans out. I still like to keep up with your blog to see how things are going in the priest world tho!

    I know what you mean… I have had the same problem. I think maybe I just have too many 85’s now (5 of them). I used to play – I used to have my quest text scrolling instead of instant, I used to read it. My first char took me nearly a year to level to 60. Now, I just barrel through the leveling instead of enjoying the playing, and when I get to 85 I barrel through the H’s, then the LFRs.

    With life, they say it’s about the journey not the destination, but I feel like all I’ve been focusing on in my wow playing lately is the destination, and I don’t know how to get out of this mindset. The closest I’ve come so far is learning how to play a DPS DK, which I’ve actually enjoyed the process of. Maybe it’s just that I know my other characters too well and need a new challenge. At the moment I’m taking a wow holiday for a couple of weeks to get some perspective – when I come back I hope I’ll more easily see what I enjoy about the game and what is just stuff I’m doing because I can.
