I'm still tempted to get the new expansion and start WoW again but this has put me off of the idea again as my main used to be a shadow priest.

How so? That balloon in the second one was the most anticipated moment of my entire life. (I did actually crap my pants at that balloon)

Yeah it did really, I think the atmosphere will be in it still, I'll definitely be "acquiring" this one on pc.

Looking at the DPS charts Shadow Priests are among the worst DPS out there at the moment. You can get alright dps with proper procs etc but the main thing is I found them pretty boring to play now, the rotation is dull and survivability is pretty naff. Yeah we still have dispersion but we only have desperate prayer (if picked), renew and flash heal as shadow now.

On the other hand my combat rogue, again not great DPS is so much more fun to play and has kind of become my main. The expansion is still very fun, I'll grant you that.

Looking forward to Aliens: Colonial Marines! Other than that been playing Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire on the N64 and man, this game has not aged well. Think it was one of the first games I played on the 64 back in 97 or so, used to think it was really good. The main character 'Dash Rendar' is too funny though, looks like a cross between Bruce Willis and Han Solo and can do the most epic jumps I have ever seen.
They say the pen is mightier than the sword... well, I say fuck the pen! Cause you're gonna die by the sword!

I've been playing Star Wars : The Old Republic so much I think my Virginity is coming back...
If I like it, It's probably awful.

They're only worth if for the new toys and abilities. The actual story based quests are just boring.

That said, Dragon Born's dlc lets you go to Morrowind for a while, which is pretty badass.

Good thing I didn't get her preggers then :lol:

But yeah, it's pretty good apart from the fact that it (predictably) cripples non-subscribers. You can't even sprint until you're level 15 ffs. But it's really well polished and enjoyable when you put the time into it. :)
