I actually tried wow this week and I don't see how it's as big as it is. It's garbage.

I mean for all of SWTOR's flaws, at least the combat feels smooth and responsive while everything in WoW just feels antiquated, slow, and clunky.

Have you tried GW2? That is the only MMO that really kept me away from swtor for a while

And Dandy Don wasn't a bad color guy either, when he could play off of Faultless Frank and Humble Howard.

I cant say that I have.
BTW: I would prefer that I could still play the game. But due to a graphics bug I can't. I did post some detailed information in the appropriate forum. But there has been no real answer. Another player suggested messing with the INI files ... that's not going to happen. Everything was fine prior to the latest release. I was able to enjoy the game with all of the graphics on the "high" setting. But for whatever reason those can no longer be changed (for some of us). Please see the post in the "BUG" forums.
It should also be noted that I did enjoy the KotFE section. It was fine. But when this sort of thing occurs there is simply nothing I can do.
When it is obvious that things occur that I can not change then I must make decisions that deal with those changes to the best of my ability.
I hope to one day return to the game.
Besides: I recently re-connected to a couple of old friends we use to game with back in the old SFC (Star Fleet Command ) days!
Hopefully a part of the game one day will include repeatable instances or quests that we can play with those friends once again!
Oh well ... perhaps one day!
But for now I just forked over $50 to Blizzard ... I'll see what shakes out!

well to be fair wows new xpac the bosses have set loot tables but its RNG what drops for you off said boss.. Could be the one trinket you needed off that boss could be nothing could be the same helm you've had for 2 months lol

But wow is for sure the far better MMO only problem i've had with wow is it starts to feel like a job after awhile depending on your guild of course.
