Shared topic: are you playing the beta

So, once again Frinka has suggested a topic for Blog Azeroth the week.

Are you playing the MoP Beta? Why or why not? How much time are you spending there vs. the “live” servers.

Like a few other posts I have read, I was dying to get a beta key, in fact it was basically why I joined the annual pass. It was the first beta for WoW I have ever received. I missed out on all the others.

When I finally got access, I spent almost a week trying to get the darn thing to download and when I finally had enough game data to play I jumped in – not caring that there was less functionality than a hole in the ground.

As most know, the crowding was insane and questing was essentially impossible, however with all things combined I wondered whether I really wanted to play the beta after all 🙂 solidified by people advising just recently they had to redownload up to 20gb again or something….I was very glad I decided to not bother.

So to answer the question, I played beta for about 30 minutes in total. I have since tried to avoid all the pretty stunning pictures and information about the quest lines. I want to experience it all fresh and free from subjective opinions based in the grumples in the community.

I am going to start investigating the raids though so I can plan a little better, but with just over a month to go, I am pretty excited.

So slack of me, but here is some link love for those who posted about this as well:

  1. I’m surprised at how many people whom I had all assumed were madly Beta-ing, just aren’t…. for the same reason as me -> spoiling the enjoyment!

    • I was all keen when i first got it, but the amount of crowding whilst questing sort of put me off a fair bit. 100,000 people all trying to do one quest is just not appealing. I could have kept going to get to level 10, when it apparently was not quite so busy…but I couldn’t even get to level 5, so…it was sort of…meh….

      and to be honest there are apparently so much beautiful scenery – i didn’t want it to be not as impressive when my mage was traversing it…I want her to feel the beauty 🙂 eheheh
