Something that has continued to evolve over the life of the game has been end-game progression, and whatís required of your character to see what is at any one time considered the final raid. Originally it was a very linear path. You had to gear up through one raid before you could attempt the next, and the one after that, and so on. It meant that if you were even slightly behind the curve you could potentially never catch up. We began adding mechanics and options in Burning Crusade and beyond to ensure players could, with effort, have some ability to catch up. Fast forward to Cataclysm where we believe we went too far the other direction and a freshly minted 90 didnít really have to do anything before jumping directly into Dragon Soul.

Did we play the same Cataclysm?  Because I distinctly recall grinding four tiers of dungeons to get into DS with my alts.

Depends when you played. Towards the end of Cata (I skipped the first year or so of it) I got my Lock to 85, equipped a bunch of BoE PvP gear and a couple of tradeable-valor-purples, went into the 376-tier heroics for a couple of runs, and was in DS later the same day.

For me it was only 3 tiers, and not so much of a grind.

 I came back with a scroll of rezz, got my shaman to 85 and had decent enough gear that one normal dungeon + the rep I had from quests gave me the gearscore for Heroics.   After about 3-4 normal Heroics I had enough VP & drops to buy my way into the Eternity dungeons.   Those dropped loot and VP enough that I think it only took me 2-3 days to get in to DS.    I was able to skip the bullshit of Troll dungeons entirely.

I think you probably have a serious case of rose coloured glasses, because 1000 VP would buy you a wand or totem/idol/libram slot item.

That's the other way I geared up to skip the troll dungeons. (On my Hunter as well as my lock, though this was in the final months of Cata pretty much. I pretty much had Justice maxed out from levelling through dungeons, so that equals 2 more slots, plus by this time I had the quests figures out (Chromie gave you a free ranged slot item from her quest, a couple more slots were filled with quests, but I forget exactly what.) Skipped trolls and went straight to the Eternity tier. I hated those trolls so did everything I could do to skip them...

So apparently nobody has obtained a Sha or Galleon mount, ever. There is 0 proof this is on the loot tables at all. There are a few screenshots but mostly the people are in t3 etc which leads me to believe they are using a certain morphing program I won't name.

Now I always thought it was strange I have never seen either mount on a server with easily 2k+ sha loots a week seeing as it dies every 15 minutes almost the entire week. But Guildox comes to the rescue!

In case you are not aware guildox scans the armory and gets EVERYONES armory details using blizzards official API. This includes hk's, mounts, achievements etc. It scans US, EU and Asian realms. Literally nobody in wow has seen this mount, Blizzard.

Four max-capacity and locked threads (with no Blizzard responses) later, there's a rolling hotfix applied to the servers and suddenly Heavenly Cloud Serpents/Mini-Galleons start showing up. Hope nobody wasted charms on trying for the mounts! Like I did. Facepalm

Well, I did get an awesome skull-shaped barbute Greathelm of the Monstrous Mushan from the only Galleon kill I was part of plus Galleon is essentially impossible to farm so that one doesn't bother me that much. Sha is pretty much "log in on Wednesday, wait five minutes for an invite & spawn, faceroll, loot" so it's not exactly PoWar bosses dropping cloth caps either. Just a little annoying.

WoW will die only after your grandchildren have faded into the dustbin of history.  And then it'll become FTP.  So yah, it'll never die.  Not completely.  I mean, heh.   EQ servers are running, right?  I'm pretty sure I can find a Meridian 59 server somewhere on the net, if I looked hard enough.

My point is that these games only die when they become irrelevant to us.

Though to be fair, DIKU-style MMOs do seem to live forever. I think all the grind is infusing them with power from the Negative Plane, so they just become undead instead.

Well, when I did a search for them, back in 2002, 2003?  It was relatively hard to find.

I thought that they had shut down, but apparently not.  Good to know.

M59 was shut down for a while, but then started back up with a different company.  Wikipedia says shut down in 2000, reopened in 2002.

It's about raids and options and how people don't play anymore and then everyone starts calling each other names and shouting at some Australian guy... not Tale... and just the typical sort of posts that WoW seems to inspire.  Didn't see anything naughty, just stupid.  If your browser filters stupid, you're really lucky!

I do the same thing. I get the itch, play for a few weeks and get bored. I've been trying to level my DK now and have encountered the dregs of humanity. I have never really had issues with LFD until now. Every time I run something now I either get someone spewing dick and fart jokes or I get someone who thinks my dps isn't good enough.

What's the new flavour of the week for DPS?  I suck at tanking and hate healing (I was pretty good at it though) so dps is where I'm headed.  I only have one 90, hunter, but I've leveled every class to at least 75.

You hate yourself?  I haven't had the itch at all after unsubbing in.. uh.. February, I think.  Then again I've also picked-up other games to check out (Secret World, Gave LotRO another shot, TOR.) and don't have nearly the amount of free time I once did.

Been there. It usually takes them a few days to restore all your crap as best they can, and they usually toss a few more pieces of gear on there than you actually had.

Because the gear deletion happened too long ago, they weren't able to restore anything.  I basically got the green 85 starter gear for my characters under 90 and my lone 90 got the green 88 gear.  They also gave me 500g for each character.  It's not too bad since my 90 hunter wasn't very well geared and anything my sub 90's had was going to be replaced anyway through levelling.
