Well I never thought I’d say this but I have to confess I’ll be taking Blizzard up on the offer of a 10 day free trial of MoP.
I had previously thought my time in Azeroth had come to a close after my burnout of Cataclysm and the subsequent launch of the Kung-fu panda expansion, however I have to admit I am more than curious on actually trying out a monk (hell I may even roll a panda) but the thing which really makes me want to return is I miss their dungeons and the ease of being able to participate in them.
One thing’s for sure dungeons are not GW2s strongest point, the fact it’s a battle to actually find a group is one of the problems (not my idea of fun spamming general chat channels) but the major one for me is they just aren’t all that fun. The fact you get no loot bar some tokens is another major downside but also I’m not so convinced about the ‘removal of the trinity system’ in a dungeon scenario.
As things stand having to revive your team mates constantly or run through an entire instance to get back to the boss fight in the hope one person is still left standing just isn’t my idea of fun. GW2 remains my game of choice but it doesn’t quite scratch all those itches.
So ten days to see if I’ll bother picking up MoP………
