I quit World of Warcraft in 2010. Here's why I came back

Gaming Hardware
And I look back, and it's weird. Cuz I look back on it really fondly, but I would never go back. Never. Never. Never. Never go back. [MUSIC] Okay, I'm totally playing Warcraft again. I wasn't planning to do it, it just kind of happened. But, its really a testament to how great WOW Legions is. That six years after I quit playing the game, I am way back into it. [MUSIC] One of my favorite things is the story. Now, previously, in Wow, I was never really into the story. I was going into places and killing a bunch of stuff. And then seeing my character get stronger. But now I'm really into the story. And I think there's two reasons for this. One is presentation. There's a ton of cut scenes and voice over that makes the story presentation like really cinematic and that really works for me. The other is the story's actually good. Blizzard made some really ballsy moves especially because you're watching it like I can't believe they're doing that. And then they actually do it. And it's really satisfying. They really make your character feel like they're a really important part of the storyline. Another way they do this is through artifact weapons. Artifact weapons are basically the most powerful weapons in the game. They really make a big deal about it when you get these weapons. They put this really awesome Font on the screen of the name of the weapon, they placed dramatic music. Even though everyone in the game has these weapons, they really do a good job of making you feel like you're special when you're using them. It's pretty awesome. But I feel like I'm kind of getting a little too far ahead of myself cuz I'm not playing this game if there's no boosting. So what is boosting? Boosting is basically when you take a character up to any level Press a button and that character immediately becomes level 100. You see, in Legion, you have to be level 100 to play the latest storyline. It can get kind of addicting cuz Legion comes with a free boost for any one character. And then you can buy a boost for $60 after that, and I've purchased two. And then there's level scaling. So Usually in WoW, in previous expansions, in the new areas, each area will be designated to a certain level range. But here, each area scales to your appropriate level. So no matter if you're level 101 or level 103 or what have you, the level will scale, the enemies will scale to be appropriate for you, the quests will scale to be appropriate for you. And the really advantage to do this is that the areas never expire. Even when you are level one ten you are still going back to the areas because there is still a challenge and there is still stuff to do. One of the best reasons to go back to these areas are World Quests. Now what are World Quests? World Quests are basically time quests. That give you really meaningful, useful rewards. And I've been able to gear up really well just by doing world quests. I've been able to get really powerful gear just by running these quests everyday. So, there are two things that I learned in coming back to WOW and one is that even if I quite again I'm probably gonna come back. You know I just really love this world. I love being in this world. And I really love to see all the improvements they've made over the years. And the second thing is never say never. [MUSIC] Just when I thought I was out they pull me back in!
