There are a number of different ways one can have fun in World of Warcraft. That is the beauty of the game, there is no wrong or right way to play. However, when I say that I don’t mean that you can do whatever you want in a raid or a battleground. If you’re a pvper, there are obviously things you need to do to win the battlegrounds. That’s not what I mean.
What I mean is, you are able to choose your end game goal. Blizzard Entertainment gives us multiple ways to play the game, which is great. Today, we explore some of the different ways to have fun.
As a social player and a leveler, when people find out I don’t raid or pvp, I often get asked “Then what DO you do?” as if that is the only things to do in the game. It brought me to realize, for some…that is. For me, it isn’t, so I thought that writing an article to showcase some of the different ways to play and have fun, would be a great idea.
Leveling is the number one thing you can do in the game, in fact you start off with leveling. As you get your first level cap character, you can opt to level more characters or progress that character to end game. Some people want as many characters leveled as possible, while others only want a few. Either way, there is no magic number as to what is acceptable and nobody should ever make you feel like you need to have more then you want to have.
Raids are where you can join a group and go after some end game pve content. This will help you get better gear, gold, and even mounts and pets from some of these raids. Though, it can be hard for you to find a guild or a group that your comfortable with raiding with. You need to make sure you mesh well with the group your after, this is one of the most popular ways to have fun in the game.
PVP is another popular form of fun in the game. Although, it is the also the most toxic, this is slowly coming to an end with Blizzard’s social contract they now make you sign. Blizzard is taking that contract seriously, there are many different forms of pvp. You have arenas, skirmishs, battlegrounds, and rated battlegrounds., I could be missing some, but those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head.
There are still people who roleplay in the game. You even have roleplay guilds, though it almost feels like a dying art. Some servers are known more for their roleplay then others, like Wyrmrest Accord or Moon Guard albeit, Moon Guard has a less then honorable reputation due to its usage of ERP thats also become more privatized (whispers only) as Blizzard begun cracking down on roleplay that was public that wasn’t at least teen friendly due to the Teen rating of the game.
These are only a few of the main ways you can have fun in the popular video game. Although, there are many other ways from achievement hunting to collecting mounts or pets. You should take the time to figure out your idea of fun and what works best for you.
