World of Warcraft scam!

Hello there dear blog readers!

I wanna start of by thanking Gel. E and Edwin ( you know who you are but i don't know your blog names) for actually commenting on my latest blog, seriously means the world to me!

Okay, now that we got that out of the way
NO JK, i seriously love interaction with my readers and viewers ( on my vlogs that is )

but on a serious note:

Today i started to play World of warcraft again and i just played around with different kinda races ( Humans, Orcs, Taurens, Gnomes etc ) and different kinda classes ( Warlock, Mage, Warrior, Rogue etc ) and what keeps coming back is "professions".

In WoW, like in (probably) the most MMORPG's ( Massive Multiple Online Role Playing Game ) you eventually, around leven 5 to 10, you can start choosing your professions which can be: Cooking, first aid, fishing, mining etc.

I started fishing, simply cause i like it for some reason ( Don't ask why cause i seriously don't know ) but my goodness those professions take a heck of a lot of time to master.
It's obviously difficult for me personally to keep my focus on 1 thing for about 15 to 20 min straight cause i have ADHD and i'm gay...get it, can't get my focus STRAI....ah nevermind.
When you think if it as a time consuming factor i personally actually think it's a way of (WoW creators) blizzard to keep you busy and distracted FROM the game.
YES i said FROM the game cause doing quests and traveling the world of WoW is absolutely amazing BUT practiced/training your professions is a pain in the ass which makes you wanna go do something else as a " switch in reality" which is easy to say since you can log into WoW any time a day, 7 days a week. It seriously doesn't matter.

The game costs you 13.99 euro's (no idea how much dollars but i guess about 15 to 17) so if you think of it as a wise investment, you actually get a discount if you play more cause you already paid for it ( its prepaid months ) so you make the best off of it.
If you play every now and then you paid way more (if youcalculate how much you spend and how much you played) an you do the same things no matter your class or race.

I seriously think those professions are a scam to keep you distracted from a game and make you wanna do more exciting things in life which make you forget about the game WHILE you actually ALREADY paid.

I DO wanna make sure that this article isn't posted to diss, burn down or ridicule WoW cause that would make me a real life big time f***ing hypocrite cause to be honest i'm a very big time fan/player.
I just like to point out something i think is VERY miss leading/wrong in the game and i wonder what the real reason behind this part of the game is if it's not everything ( which i actually honestly is ) i just pointed out.

Thank you so much for reading this blog, if you liked it please leave a comment and share this blog with everyone you know.
Bye <3

2 opmerkingen:

  1. Well, I tend to say it's just an optional part of the game and you don't have to play it. But well World of Warcraft is an MMO, now about 7,5 years old and back then there weren't that many different MMO.
    MMO's were designed as timesinks to keep you playing, so there the first basics are to do quests and level up, but offcourse you can't level up forever and there has to be a maximum level. But ones you are maximum level what is the point of doing quests? Because in RPGs you want to keep developing your character right. So they designed the high level raids and dungeons to develop your character by gear instead of levels.
    Now those professions are another way to develop your character, Mining helps you mine stuff for Blacksmithing which gives you better gear or gems for Jewelcrafting to improve the gear you have even further.
    On top of better gear you get buffs to make your character stronger for a short amount of time you have buffs that other characters give or you give yourself, but also buffs from food, and you get that food by cooking, and you can cook that fish you catch with fishing.

    And I guess thats in my opinion the fun of it to keep going, I fish to have my character at the best possible when I do those end game dungeons to be able to get that new gear to develop my character even further.

    Hope I made a bit of sense, offcourse what I typed above is all a matter of opinion. Been playing this game for over 8 years now, leveled up every character :P and still enjoying it.

    Oh and not to mention, I met my second half through World of Warcraft.

  2. I have never even thought about the points you just brought up Peter, besides meeting your second half on WoW cause that's personal, i actually understand those terms way better now and am actually pretty excited to do all that fun stuff
