A Video Blog!
Over the next few days I will be making a video review of the upcoming Mage and Rogue changes rolling out with the Cataclysm expansion. So please look forward to that!
Today I wanted to address a different issue. Ten characters per server is a good amount and I understand why they don't want to raise that number, but I am finding that a side of effect of all this Cataclysm news is Altoholicism. I really can't stop playing alts, and I really want to have one of every class before Cataclysm comes out. Why, you ask? So I don't miss out on what each class is currently like! I have been playing since launch and I have leveled every class to at least 20, most of them to level 30 or higher. Over the past five years that experience has changed, but not like it will Cataclysm.
I started leveling a Warrior, Mage, and a Rogue. That's on top of my Druid, Deathknight, and Paladin, that are all pretty high levels already. After I got my Rogue to level 26 the other day, I thought about playing my Mage for a bit, and it dawned on me. I have almost no room for any new characters at Cataclysm launch. Sure, I could play them on a different server, but my guild and in-game friends are all on Earthen Ring. It would suck to level on a different server with out them.
I feel like I only have two options: to stop leveling or to level them all the way with the knowledge that I will be deleting them when Cataclysm comes out so I can level them the new way.
Sure, I could buy another account, but that's just more money than I want to spend.
