It's dying

Or is it dyeing?

Well, I guess WoW has changed its color for this expansion. Pokemon battles and such....

Was fun. If only there was a game we could all play together. Like dated graphics, sub-based, unbalanced pvp, endless dailies, slowly dieing but we could all still get on and chit chat. Oh wells.

Lets talk about sad animal movies.

I was buying a new harness for my dog at the store the other day and they had Homeward Bound playing on a small tv right above the register. It was the part where Shadow got trapped in the mud and Champ was trying to pull him out...Almost made me cry in the store.

Michael J Fox should do one of those animal narration movies like Morgan Freeman. It would definitely be awesome

Tuladrin and Cig:

RL has been kicking Rez Pls for some time now, hence Rez Pls is only 4 bosses in. That said, maybe we can take those lemons and make some lemonade! I'm not GM (my wife, Eliance, is) or even on our board, so I can't promise anything, but if Cig's guild isn't raiding right now, it sounds like we may be a good fit to help each other out. Maybe Cig's guildies can fill our holes until you start raiding again. That's not much, but it's better than not raiding when you want to raid.

Tuladrin: we have two good hunters (see vids) already, BUT we also have some alt flexibility. One of our hunters is both reserve tank and reserve healer. All we can do is see if we can make it work and if the personalities fit.

With regard to the main topic, I say no. WoW goes through cycles, and it has been a bit of an extended down cycle as far as subscriptions go. However, pretty much any other MMORPG would love to have an up cycle half as good as WoW's down cycle. Like any expac, there's stuff to like, and stuff not to like in Pandaria. WoW may contract, but it won't die any time soon.

In WoW I could get people to rage on my Ret Pally by swtiching on and off seal of righteouness, just to screw up the tank's aggro

With my mage every time a tank gets uppity I just start sheeping everything and watch his aggro meters go whacky. Of course Invis is always close at hand.

#7 and climbing again... 3-0 in Big East. Scott Shafer named Syracuse's head football coach. He was our defensive coordinator for the last 4 years and I look forward to even better things next year!

how could WoW get me back?

Go F2P or $5 a month

add skins, pets, and mounts for micro transactions... and I'll never leave again

Tera just went F2P after being sub based... it went from like 100k players to like 400k+ over night... (just estimating based on global chat explosion since i left)

WoW would get 5x larger if it went F2P...

but WoW will never go F2P until the WoW killer emerges (like the anti-christ) or some shit... then it will be pointless

I'm much simpler to please.

I'd come back if it started snowing again in Dun Morogh on a regular basis, and you could hear the "spring peepers" come out in any swamp or lake, when the sun was just starting to go down.

Heck, I'd be happy to see one of those torrential rain monsoons that would just sweep in in STV again.

Is WoW dying?

WoW died when Arthas did. What's left is just a shambling corpse. A popular corpse, but still dead. I haven't logged on in two years, yet every time I check things out I don't see anything that would make me want to come back.

When Garrosh finally gets killed I'll probably watch the cut scene on Youtube, because I wanted to kill him myself, but that's as close as I think I'm going to get.

this is confusing me why would this mess with a tanks aggro, unless you meant to say righteous fury

TL;DR version

WoW Died when Footballdude got burnt out and therefore everyone else in the world should also be burnt out.

Just an example on what is happening I get my 21 sigils of power(lol) and 10 sigils of wisdom to the Black Prince turn in the quest and I don't get the next one when I checked my quest log I saw that I have't completed the "get honored with me" quest so I can get the next step, I just couldn't find the time to do more dailies on the shaman while leveling/raiding with other toons.

For the Black Prince Rep just go kill horde in the shield wall area.

Lots of them, and don't still till your revered (you'll save yourself some time from going back to get revered later.)

To get some added benefit from all those mob kills pick up the dailies(or don't it doesn't matter)
