You really have to start at the beginning and progress through step by step. It makes for much more immersion in the storytelling, but it's much more restrictive in how and where you spend your game time.
I just wish there was more of an in game hint about this. Players shouldn't have to go to forums to figure this out.

There is. If you would have looked for all the quest givers they direct you to the appropriate location.

You probably skipped a quest hub somewhere thinking that a delivery quest was just that and didn't realize that it opened up a new phase or zone.

I have gotten bored because current raiding sucks. raid time is 7:45 but we don't start until like almost 9. I've just about given up playing and only play when the wife is around for raids. Otherwise, I'm bored grinding it out for gear.

Same.

I can't quite place the problem. There's always something to whine about with game mechanics; but nothing seems that bad. Competition with Rift, maybe?

We're struggling to fill raids, folks are leaving the game, and the people that are left don't give a shit. It's starting to feel like the end.

I still buy 60 day cards, but I almost never log on anymore. I was so jacked for Cataclysm, so we could see WoW as something new again. Unfortunately, it's not what I was looking for in the end. Sure it's fun to fly around Azeroth, yes the new quests are AMAZING and injected with a huge dose of LORE and pop-culture references, but it's just not cutting it anymore. I guess the game has become TOO diverse for me. I log in, and like IRL, end up sitting around SW bored without a goal. haha. WTB SWTOR, get a dose of a galaxy far, far away until Blizzards next big thing

I think I may actually be done with the game for good. All my friends and I quit at the same time so there's nobody to pull me back in and nobody to pull them back in. I can't complain about the game itself this time. I had fun doing the 5 man achievements for the Volcanic Stone Drake. Poor attendance and low server pop mixed with a little unwillingness to recruit blew our chances at raiding regularly. The 5 raid bosses I did kill were pretty fun though. I just kinda blew through the content available to me and called it quits. Let's just hope the next few seasons of warm weather and a good selection of games and keep me away.

I dont really know what raiding is or how to do it, although I hear people talking about it.

Now Im at level 85 there isnt really much to play for. I'd like to kill Thrall and the Lich King, but they are probably stronger than I ever can get... I dont even know where either of them lives to assault them anyway.

I came within like one inch of killing the Lich King in a dungeon with one other hunter, but he was saved by a certain rock fall that protected him from the airship that was about to blast him to death. I really wanted to throw down my sword and finish him with my bare fists (after the air ship had stripped him of 99% of his HP of course)

Ive found a new challenge (which is hard for me at least as I have a terrible sense of direction)

I am trying to get the achievment dungeon master. I didnt do any of the dungeons through dunegon finder, Ive only every gone through them slowly. It isnt hard in terms of the enemies, but I get so lost...

I spent three hours going through Blackrock Mine.

I FINALLY found I could teleport through this drilling machine, then I had to re-murder 7 ghosts, then I was in this room... NO LIE, literally 500 dwarves attacked me in waves and I was just blasting these motherfuckers till I found the torches to open the door.

I was scared the door was gonna close after 5 mins so I was crawling at 3 MPH with about 30 dwarf bastards constantly stunning me so I couldnt move and my pet picking off one at a time... when I made it through the door I then slaughtered them all. When I finally spied the boss that I needed for the achievment I got pretty excited and started shouting "die motherfucker die motherfucker die..." and it gave me extreme pleasure to slaughter him. That bastard deserved no better than a bullet in the guts.

I must have been three hours wandering around that place lost. The enemies were all only lvl 50 so they couldnt hurt me, but when I thought those dwarves would stop me getting through the door before the torches ran out of time I was as livid as I ever have been playing WOW, other than the time Thrall disrespected me over HIS inability to kill Deathwing

I'd like to kill Thrall now, but as a single Lvl 85 character I dont think I can kill one of the bosses on my own.

I just wish my life was routine enough anymore to manage playing a game of this nature. I enjoy it but my life is just sheer chaos when it comes to scheduling. People are constantly getting pieces of my time, and I'm involved in too many side projects to give up that free time to this game anymore. Been over a month since I logged in :\

Shrug, I've spent 90% of my time playing solo. And I'm in a guild too (for the perks).

There's leveling, pick up groups, and PvP for us solo types.

I've gotten really bored with the game. I think I need another extended break from it, or perhaps I need to try some of the heavy-RP servers (e.g. Moon Guard) and do some virtual LARPing.

Anyone try it?

I played the goblin starter missions and it was the most fun Ive had on WoW

But then something really pissed me of. I was in an Alliance ship looking for treasure, and I couldnt believe... there was Thrall in a prison, helpless and at my mercy. But I couldnt attack him!

I had to free the bastard... I instantly quit and deleted the goblin character. I guess if you play on the Horde you have to expect such things, but still...

Strange, you broke one of the cardinal rules of characterization: metagaming.

Ive played a Paladan/Mujahideen up to Lvl 33... I really cant get used to anything else but hunter though.

I tried a few battlefields and these bastard rougues kept knifing me in the back out of nowhere.

Every battle I fight with every monster I have to get bust up, heal myself if its a boss... its a lot harder than just sending in the pet and standing back and blasting. (and play dead if the worst come to worst)

I played wow for like 5 years on Alonsus EU server, horde side and alliance.
But the other day i got an email from blizzard saying they have rejected my credit card payment. and the fact is, nothing's wrong with my credit card. I've used it to pay for the game for 5 years. That is very strange. Anybody else got that problem?

Sounds like a phishing email.

I dont know what that means, but under no circumstances will I forgive this prick Thrall the half ogre for the insults he threw at me because HE couldnt deal with Deathwing.

I joined a guild so hopefully one day we can all gang up on him and kill him.

Metagaming is when you step outside the game and look at it as a player. It's a way of "cheating the story."

Your goblin character would have no reason to kill Thrall; at least not the same reason why you, as a player, want to kill him. Did your goblin character know all the same stuff you know? Did he think the same thoughts?

Didn't think so.

Well, I always play from my own point of view, not the characters... I dont consider that an error.

I wont take missions that involve killing my brother and sister elves, although the Night Elves in the game seem to have no problem fighting the Blood Elves.
