Re-upping in Azeroth

Is something in the wind lately?

Every where I turn, friends who had dropped their WoW accounts like they were hot have been signing on for more questing, more rep grinds and more alt-a-holism. While at the same time, hardcore raiders seem to be dropping out from burnout. My old guild has lost several die-hard 24-7 WoW-heads in the last month. What’s going on?

Is the dim Autumnal lighttriggering something deep and mysterious in our limbic systems? Wolves grow their winter coats. Trees’ leaves put on a show for the tourists. Cider mills open for business. And old players return to WoW.

What’s driving this? Is it all of the Wrath of the Lich King press, or the promise of soloable epics from Ogri’La?

What’s your guess, dear readers?

    I would love to return to WoW. But work is crazy.

    Well in my opinion it is the unblanced classes at the moment. Warlocks are ofc well known for this but general in pvp locks, SPs, resto droods and resto shammies can be OP if played correctly. PVP is dead until they fix it.

    Well, let’s see. I baked my boyfriend a cake, made our former Karazhan group talk up Zul’Aman, and complained constantly about the lack of prot warriors to tank SSC to get him to come back. Worked like a charm.

    Seriously though, I’d say these things come in cycles. The honeymoon period of tBC wore out by April or May, people left, but then the old urge kicked back in again by the end of summer, so they’re trickling back in.
