I'll have to admit that my second time playing World of Warcraft has not left me very excited. I think the main reason is that, unlike EverQuest 2, I have to level up my crafting alts adventure levels. And since I made the mistake of making all 4 of my characters blood elves, that can get boring.
But today comes "The Shattering", in which all the level 1-60 zones get revamped. Since I could really only be bothered to get a character to level 20 and hadn't left the blood elf starting zone, I'm not going to know too much of a difference in the Horde zones. I might have to start up a human character just to see how the world changed.
Now, because I only purchased the basic game and The Burning Crusade, I wasn't even thinking about purchasing Cataclysm because I didn't want to also have to pay $40 for The Wrath of the Lich King. But I just read a post by Tobold that WotLK is on sale until the 29th for $10. Maybe I'll have to pick that up, even though I may never reach level 60 again, much less 70.
