WoW January Update

WoW: January Update

Because my last WoW update was so late it doesn’t feel like enough time has elapsed since I wrote about my WoW experiences. It has however been a somewhat eventful month with the launch of phase 2 for Classic Wrath of the Lich King which includes the iconic Ulduar raid and heroic+ dungeons.

I have to say that for while now I have been struggling to stay focused and interested in Classic WoW. I thought Wrath of the Lich King might keep me hooked until the launch of the next expansion, but no matter what I try I can’t find any motivation or enjoyment from the game. Hopefully I will find a way to start enjoying Classic WoW again, and soon. It’s not nice playing a game just for the sake of it and it’s not good for the guild I am part of. At this stage of the game I should be putting in 100% effort and trying my best, as it is I am kind of dreading logging in. Regardless of these feelings I have managed to raid with my guild and successfully defeated most of the the bosses in Ulduar and made a recording of us defeating Yogg-Saron for the first time. The only one we haven’t defeated yet is Algalon the Observer who is kind of considered to be a ‘bonus’ boss for when players successfully complete a quest chain.

I have been awarded a few items from Ulduar, however none of the items I have been given so far are BiS (best in slot) or in high demand. This is a good thing in the short term because I would hate to be given sought after items before someone else who is more motivated and more likely to put the item to good use and derive enjoyment from it. For now I think I will avoid raiding until I know for sure that I will start enjoying the game again and be motivated enough to see the phase through to the end.

As for the ‘new’ heroic+ dungeons, they are kind of fun but also serve as yet another step away from the Classic WoW experience. Heroic+ dungeons, like a lot of other things, weren’t part of the original Wrath of the Lich King expansion. I have completed a few with my warrior, Copper, but got bored of them rather quickly. I think I might have enjoyed the retail version of Mythic+ dungeons with no ceiling and a weekly reward, but I guess that would have been a step too far away from Classic WoW.
