Ah, World of Warcraft with your twelve characters per server, how do I love thee? Enough so that I decided to rotate all my characters on both my main servers. Those little characters waiting in the wings now only have to wait a week or so between adventures.
I have characters spread from the Broken Isles to Northrend to one lowbie at Chillwind camp. This has made the game so much more fun than I can say. There’s no repetitive grinding character after character through the same zones and quests. No two characters following each other on the list are in the same place. The two servers have a different flavor, so that makes things interesting too.
During a level, everyone works on quests, exploration, resource gathering, fishing ,cooking, first aid, archaeology, plus Class Quests for the 100+ characters. Each character’s turn goes so fast.
I find that normally I forget quite how to play classes that haven’t been played in awhile, but now, they come fairly quickly and I’m right back in there.
I spent some time with Timewalking Dungeons last week. I must whine that I kept getting the Arcatraz over and over with different characters, and every group had trouble with the dungeon. So painful. I finally just stopped queuing for the Timewalks partially because I couldn’t stand one more run through that annoying place. Most groups also had trouble in The Slave Pens right at the entrance to the last ramp to the last boss. Argh people, quit pulling the whole room.
I haven’t been running dungeons for quite awhile, and I could not tell if some of my own problems were because of Class changes or perhaps I’ve lost my Dungeon-y Edge. I’m getting back in there. No more Weenie Woman.
That said, I do see dungeons as a measure of how well I’m playing my characters. Though I normally just ignore class changes and adapt to whatever the new style of play is, I think Legion has brought the most severe changes I can recall. Some classes are so easy now, and others are a real struggle.
