I disagree. I'd rather level up another six levels than spend €40 on an expansion pack, and waste three hours downloading the extra data, when I might not even need it. I'm starting to get bored of the game and might not be around for much longer. Some of the quests are just mind-numbing; especially in Outland.
For example: go to this place and kill 10 of these monsters. But when you get to that place there are four different kinds of monsters mixed up; so you have to kill all of them in order not to get killed and to do the quest. Then you fly back to the quest giver who sends you back to the very same spot to kill five of another type of monster - a type that you just killed six of while trying to get the original 10. Then you go back to the quest giver and get told to go back and kill some more of another type of monster; even though you've killed 35 of them while trying to bag the first two quests.
Like I said: it's mind-numbing!
I've played dungeons but these are getting boring too. The random dungeon finder gives me one of two dungeons each time because of my level. Even if the group isn't rude, and the group isn't rubbish and doesn't wipe out; I'm still bored because it's the tenth time I've done this dungeon in two days, the bag of "useful goods" will be anything but useful and almost all of the drops will be plate, mail or leather; even though two or three of the five player dungeon party are cloth wearers (me, the healer, and possibly a Warlock).
Don't even get me started on this so-called "dungeon etiquette" (whose sole proponents on these forums seem unable to construct a sentence) which means that we all have to bend over, pull our pants down and let the tank take whatever he likes!
I've tried battle grounds but most of the Alliance teams are full of idiots that run off in every direction and think it's an "every man for himself" situation; which inevitably leads to destruction. Even if I get a good team, the opposition are wearing heirlooms and I just get turned into minced-elf. This really does bug me. Why should a player have an advantage just because he has levelled a character previously? Surely the advantage of the experience of levelling a character is enough without all the extra gear.
So yeah, sorry to go on. But this game is starting to annoy me and to bore me.
