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:

Awesome day today!

My beautiful warrior finally hit 85 this morning!! YAY!  He was my second toon ever created after my mage 🙂  He was a she at her original creation but is now a tauren boy.

I don’t really have any plans for him, I just wanted to get him maxxed so I can maybe run some dungeons and just have some fun.  I enjoy my warrior – nowhere near as much as my mage or my druid, but I enjoy thunderclap and Stromstrike far more than I probably should!

Anyway, I logged onto my priest to start levelling her, since I am at work I can’t run dungeons, so am just questing, which can get boring!  I got a message from the hubby so I took a few minutes to read that.
