Heroics in WoW take too long. I love the challenge, I love the difficulty, but I hate the time commitment it takes to run 5-man dungeons. I need 2+ hours to successfully clear a heroic dungeon, but that's hard to come by when you're a parent, work for a living, and have WoW crash constantly. 2 hours is a lot of time to ask of someone who plays casually.
I can feel my interest in the game waning, and the time associated with endgame content is a big reason. I want to be able to jump online and have an exciting adventure in 20-40 minutes. That's not an unreasonable request. I can get exactly that from games like League of Legends and Team Fortress 2. At the moment in WoW it takes around 40 minutes in the queue as a DPS and then 2+ hours to clear a heroic. Even when I run with guildies and have no queue wait time I still usually end up leaving before we complete the dungeon.
I feel I'm in a weird spot. I want the difficulty to remain high, but I don't want heroic dungeons to take so long. Besides completely getting rid of trash mobs I don't know how they could solve this problem. Maybe I'll be happy when they nerf the bosses and make runs quicker, but honestly I'll probably be unsubscribed by that point.
This is a place for me to write down my thoughts on the world of gaming or any other subject that may catch my attention. Playing and discussing video games has been a big part of my life since I was a little kid. Although I hope to get comments and generate discussion, A Green Mushroom is mainly a spot for me to write about what I love, games.
I hope you enjoy reading A Green Mushroom. Feel free to leave comments.
