Oh, it's an odd time in the LeafyLand. My push towards character completion continues, with me ding 375 fishing while doing the fishing daily quest today. I'm delighted with this - I never maxed out my fishing in the original game, before the release of Burning Crusade, so I was determined to hit the top before Wrath of the Lich King. And I did! As of today, all my professions are maxed out. Go me!
The problem is that it's not only me that's going. A good chunk of my guild are getting ready to play Age of Conan when it releases at the weekend. They have more playtime than me and some of them have two 70s that are pretty much finished. And some of them have a lot moreâ¦
They're not quitting, mind, just playing an alternative game as they're finding fewer and fewer things to do in WoW. And I think that's a problem for Blizzard. Wrath may be up to six months away and 2.4 was, allegedly, the last content patch of the Burning Crusade. If we go six months with nothing new to do, the WoW population may be a whole lot smaller by the time the next expansion hits.
