Ive been playing since alpha
I managed to get my character to phys 28, rank 15 conj and rank 10-14 on most professions.
With the incoming patch changes i kind of hit a wall and decided to step away until the patch hits, the ui changes coming in will add a smal lamount of enjoyment back to me.
So, in lack of something to do i accepted blizzards' invite back to WOW for 7 days.
Ive been playing since euro release and gave up 18 months ago when they made higher level epics available from vendors for grinding heroic dungeons. This was a game killer for me (likewise in tbc). Being a semi hardcore player in a friendly guild (the guild makes this game for me) i enjoyed the difficulty associated with progression. And handing me the same or better rewards for repetition is not great, after spending weeks learning different encoutners.
I found out my character was incredibly limited to customisation now (i play rogue paladin and druid) being limited to 1 tree + spare 5 talents :(. And items have had stats simplified.
So im eagerly awaiting the incoming patch for FFXIV and the planned content additions.
