WoW - Became a dragging, play because you have friends playing game. Still don't know if I'll play again or not. Leveling has become a daunting chore over the past couple years as the game has changed. Getting to level 60 was easy, even playing as a healer. I may have basically soloed to about level 16-18 but from there on I was always in a group running through some instance. But then they changed the game, and ever since the Burning Crusade players have had to spend more time doing stupid go and do this or that quests till their eyes bleed to get levels. And as a healer type, it royally sucked...I managed to get to level 77, but by then I had enough. Because then it became an issue, oh well if you don't have gold for this or that then you can't do this. And what was I suppose to do, try to start a 'cyber-whore' ring on WoW to get gold?
Thought I'd touch on this, being a WoW-whore.
Leveling a Tank or Healer became ridiculously easier last December with the addition of Random Dungeon Finder(RDF). Tanks and Healers work best in organized groups, which really only occurs in dungeons. You can queue up as a Tank, a Healer, or a Damage dealer(depending on your class, of course), and it will put you into a queue for groups of your level range and port you to a random dungeon in your level range. The RDF allows one to be grouped with players from the other realms in one's battle group, which increases one's chances of getting a quick grouping.
Tank and Healer queue times are near instantaneous, if not outright instant. Damage Dealers(DPS) end up having to wait awhile longer, depending on time of day, your battlegroup, and how many tanks/healers are queued up.
It is nice, as a leveling tank, to have the Random Dungeon Finder as early as level 15, as your leveling gets exponentially faster(particularly if you have heirlooms and rested experience). So far, I've leveled a Protection Paladin from 15 to 63 through JUST the RDF. Less than 5 days /played even.
Each dungeon completion under level 80 grants a 'Sack of Helpful Goods', which will contain a blue item of your appropriate armor class. Sometimes rings or necklaces.
Each dungeon completed also grants a fair bit of experience, AND gold. It is an excellent way to make quick and early gold.
