I got my Paladin to 85, even relearning how to play again after quite along time from the game. Spent a great deal of time reading and learn how all the new class mechanics work and reading class compendiums at the EJ forums for hours. It was all fun and really invested the time to really learning things like i usually always did. It was all fun.
I didn't really look forward to all the grinding or reputation grind but I did some of it daily just going through the motions of things and logging on to play. And had moments of enjoyable fun in the process. But deep down I just wasn't looking forward to it. So I did less and less of it everyday. I did find some enjoyment in doing the cooking daily almost daily, not sure why.
I decided to level up some my other characters from 80 to 85, so i did. Not only that I transferred 4 characters from the server i was on back to my old server to play with my old guild and some guild friends there who still played so I was among familiar faces when i logged on to play. Its was just good to see familiar faces I had fun playing with since long ago.
I got 4 my characters to lvl 85 and was all fun to level them up, learn how to play them among all the changes to the classes. Spent time leveling up most my characters professions and had fun doing it. Yet once I got them all to lvl 85 I just didn't look forward to all the gear grind and faction rep grind and all that. Still I did some of it on some my characters. But just did not care to do it all that much to do it daily over and over. Maybe after 5 years of WoW for me its just getting old no matter how its re-skinned. I never visited or quested through any of the new starter zones or through changed Azeroth, I had no appeal to ever doing so and never did. Cataclysm for me was just 80-85 pretty much, 5 levels.
On most days daily I find I just log in sell some stuff on the AH and add to my huge gold supply and did some fishing. That's gets quite boring after a while just mostly logging in and selling stuff and some dailies. And the choices of what to decide to do don't seem all that great and didn't feel like investing any time in the raiding game.
So over weeks and days I find myself playing and logging in less and less daily. Since I also play multiple MMO's these days, I find at time I rather log out of WoW and often rather invest my time playing EVE and work on my projects there which seem more worthwhile for me to do. I guess you have more choices in how you decide to spend your time effort wise when you have choices of games to play.
Instead of keep subscribing and not really logging into WoW all that much, I checked my account and funny enough my subscription runs out tomorrow. So It didn't take me long to decide to just go ahead and pull the plug on my WoW subscription and Cataclysm.
I have no bitter feelings about WoW. I've always kept it positive. I'm just not feeling it anymore like I used to in days, years and old expansions past when i played like I had a crack addiction with in game friends and ran instances like a madman. The community in game feels very different, even the atmosphere in my guild feels different like everyone's a stranger at times. Barely anyone says hello to anyone. The feeling seems to be gone and instead of keep playing when I know I'm not feeling it enough to log in and play I rather end it here and now. So i just cancelled my subscription today which ends tomorrow.
The feeling just seems gone for me. Cataclysm for me lasted just 2 months.
For me its Game Over!
Edit: Already gave away all my stuff so you cant have it. And all the gold, gave all of it away too all six figures!
