Floating Through The 90s
Return to board index
So my help isn't a traditional one that people normally complain about.
So in reality I don't have a main. I have 5 90s a few 85s from Cataclysm that just haven't had the interest to get to 90. I don't have enough playtime during the week to get everyone capped and LFRed and god knows what else that we daily need to do now.
So in reality I know and you know that there is extremely little point in me being on other characters as they will never be able to as
Now the problem; during my time on WoW I've been a little bit of everything.
My History as a player
Started playing: 22/09/2007
Slowly but surely as we all do I got my main character to level 70
no I wasn't around in vanilla :(.
I played a
. The name was Littlepie on Darkmoon Faire. Raided as a Frost
(I know right!) before changing to fire for the later part.
During this time I slowly but surely got my
up. I had a great time switching every few levels between feral (no guardian back then folks!) and restoraion. Her name was Gurtrew on Darkmoon Faire.
Skip to WOTLK and you see my loose interest in my
slowly but surely but my lovely
was getting closer and closer to the main character. Lovely I thought! So i then finally get to
during the great time of Ulduar.
I start raiding as a restoration
with a tanky offspec that gets used only when I really want to push the limits farming heroics.
. RAF. I received far to many characters to level 60. Extremely fun and amazing time but lead to a great many of alts to high level.
I got my
during ICC but at that point I was healing 25 heroic as a druid, raiding casually on a mage and then she just kinda did nothing.
When the Cataclysm happened I moved to the then top raiding guild on the server as a healer but failed my trial. (I lost the love of restoration healing and to this day still can't play it anymore). At this point I got a
to max! Woop! Blood spec and made my first transfer to a different server as a 25 man tank. Loved it! However as I didn't fit in with the guild I left.
I then went on to my priest who started DPSing during the first day of Firelands.
During this time I went Disco for a while.
Joined a new guild for some proper progression and they wanted a paladin; long story short I had a paladin who I was awful at.
I then went to my Druid as a Tank.
Then to Dragon Soul I went through a rotisserie of Druid Tank, Disco Priest, Shadow Priest and a very casual Shaman however as the LFR made it possible and it was a very long expansion I got to spread the time and love around.
Since MoP I started as a Shaman who had to quit due to RL commitments (Dam this working 50 hour weeks!) to a Priest going from shadow to disco and back more times then most normal people change there underwear, to a monk, to a dk to a god knows what else!
I've played competitively during the expansion as well as classed as my main:
BC: Frost Mage -> Fire Mage
WOTLK: Restoration/FeralTank Druid, Arcane Mage, Disco Priest and Frost(Tank) Death knight.
Cata: Druid Restoration, Blood DK, Shadow Priest, Disco Priest, Shadow Priest, Feral Druid Tank, Elemental Shaman, Mage, Holy Paladin.
MoP: Elemental Shaman, Restoration Shaman, Brewmaster Monk, Shadow/Disco Priest, Deathknight
This may all sound very boring to you but I'm actually seriously considering either deleting half the characters. Not because I have no use but to keep me from the temptation of playing them, Not that I'm addicted to the game; more that you have to share the love around.
So to make an even short point shorter; I feel this whole expansion and most of the last I feel like I haven't really peaked. I haven't become a heroic raider, or an amazing character that has all the reputation maximised or christ knows what else this game can really do.
What do you suggest to me to make me choose a fricking main! Or to just stop just jumping around; to help me focus on getting one character with 530 ilevel, another with 500 iLevel, another 2 with below 500 and just getting that single character to maxim potential.
I don't even like leveling
And did I mention I've done 60 paid character transfers.
That's an amazing £900 let alone the ones that involved faction as well!
Don't choose a main. Just play the game how you want to.
The only reason I have a 'main' is because it was my very first Horde toon.
I have loads of other toons on multiple servers and have done some transfers also.
Play the game the way you want, it is your $$.
holy #$%^. thats a lot of money on xfers!
My main is/was mage, but find it really hard to get a space in raid as dps, my blood dk though is a completly different story, i sometimes feel i am forced to play my dk just to get a quick raid spot my dk is now ilvl 553 while may mage is only 545 sometimes all i want to do is raid cant be bothered to go grinding ect so end up standing around for hours waiting on a tank getting nothing done only to get into a raid that fails once then deteriorates because a tank leaves (pug) putting me back to square 1.
I am in a similar boat as you.
I have 14 90s. maybe 5 85s and a score of 60 - 75s
I do have a main, in that it was my main for years and has the highest iLevel but I put equal time now days into about 5 toons. A fire mage, Shadow Priest, Ele Shaman, Combat Rogue & Fury Warrior
And my interest varies from toon to toon. Right now, I recently got back to my horribly geared fire mage. Next week I might be leveling a 4th priest or 3rd rogue or be back on my monk getting some gearz.
You need to find something you enjoy and do it. If nothing excites you in the game, perhaps it's time to quit?
I have 8 90s and play them all. I play my Shadow Priest most, and I'm part way through the legendary cloak questing on her. I would suggest starting the legendary quest on one of your toons you like to play. It will help you focus on that toon.
Although it is not my habit to comment on posts for the most part, I felt compelled to add my two cents worth over your dilemma concerning naming a main or even the thoughts of deleting characters to prevent the temptation of playing them because you feel like you have to "share the love." Why worry about either? WOW is a game that many play for enjoyment, to bond with others, or just to forget about real life for a while. I play multiple characters on multiple realms from both factions. I have toons that are crafters, I have toons that are gathers. I have melee fighters, I have ranged fighters, I have spellcasters that cause damage or heal, I have bankers, pickpockets, I even have a couple of toons that I created years ago that I have never actually played! Yet, even though I've never played them, why would I want to delete them? They don't cost me anything in so far as game time or game gold, and maybe they can serve a purpose in that when in a bind I guess I could always send them items in the mail as a short term storage facility or even use them as a means to create extra bank slots. Besides I guess I did invest some time into the character generation of each of these, considering their race, gender, looks, and probably the most time consumming part of character creation, the naming of the toon!
I personally, love pizza, but I don't eat it every day. In the same way I like playing a hunter, but I don't have to play one every day! A guildmate once asked me, "What's your main?" My response was, "Whatever toon I'm playing at the moment." In fact, I can pretty much say that the only time I truly had a main was when I first started playing WOW and only had a single character! Sure there's players out there that are all into their "main," and toil over getting the best gear, completing this acheivement, progressing through some instance, but there's so much more to this game, why would I want to limit myself to a single faction, a single race, a single class...a "main!"
So, SimplyTom, I guess what I'm saying is don't fret about it. Reminds me of a friend telling me about a T shirt they saw at the airport that read "Don't worry about the small things...None of us get out of here alive!"
