It didn’t take long to get from Thunder Bluff to the Echo Isles – Ankona took advantage of a wyvern so she could think and plan before getting to her destination. She had information to confirm with the spirits – was Gromnor dead? Was he really in the northern part of the Eastern Kingdoms, somewhere […]

Aely’s still about halfway through 89 at this point, and if I’m honest, I’m in no great hurry to get to 90. Yes, I may start raiding again on weekends, and I know that means I have to gear her up, and all that jazz. But right now, so much of the end game content is … well, dailies.

I’ll likely hit 90 by the time I finish Kun-Lai Summit. Which means I have three zones (Dread Wastes, Townlong, and Vale) of quests to do at 90. ¬†After that? It’s aaaaalll dailies.

I don’t DO dailies.

I did them in the past. I have three characters I got to exalted with the Shattered Sun, and Aely carries her Crusader title with great pride. Since then, though? I have enough repetitive boredom in my life outside of the game. I didn’t get a single character to max reputation in the Cataclysm factions. I’m not even farming regularly, and farming is fun! I’ve slowed down on pet battles now that I’m running out of low level pets to collect, and I have to grind out some levels on my battle team to get the higher up ones.

Maybe it’s because I have so little time to play during the week that I want to make the most of it. Maybe dailies just aren’t that fun, even when you get an awesome Celestial Dragon mount for it. Maybe I’ve got the attention span of a gnat on crack. Whatever the reason, I just don’t have the attention span or the desire to crank through dailies anymore.

Quests are fun. RP is fun. Pandaria is gorgeous, and I can’t even do flyover screenshots yet. But I don’t have to have done the dailies to know that, despite my best intentions (and despite how much I ¬†really want that dragon mount) I may do them occasionally, but they will never be daily for me.

  1. Dailies can be managed. There are so many factions, and the daily quests change from day to day that you don’t wind up with that repetition too much. Granted, it slows down your rep, but that’s a price I’m willing to pay. If you don’t feel like doing GL dailies today, maybe you Order of the Cloud Serpent instead.

    But don’t do something you don’t want to do. That’s the fastest path to burnout. I was able to get most of preRaid gear from the Auction House or a guild crafter with a couple of Normal mode drops.

    Do what’s fun for you. It’s the only way to play.

  2. I’ve about two-thirds to go to 89 and I find myself in the same boat. Left my raid group, questing to level, not much time as before to play so taking it slow for a change. This is the first expan since BC that I haven’t flown through new content just to get to the raid grind. MoP is great; time to stop and smell the Golden Lotus.

  3. I’m right there with you. I can dungeon queue while questing over and over, I enjoy leveling alts (which means repeating quests) but I cannot do dailies. There’s something about them that is utterly and completely boring.

    Figure it’s going to make my gear lag behind a bit to start with, but that’s just going to be the cost for be not conforming to end-all, be-all system Blizzard put in place for once you hit the level cap.
