Set Long Term Goals to survive content droughts

We’re looking at 14 months without any new content in the Warlords of Draenor expansion.  And yet I still have plenty left to do.

Early in the WoD cycle I set up some long term goals.  Collecting pets and mounts, earning reputations, getting achievements, leveling alts, making gold, etc…

As I played the game I would do these in small doses.  I didn’t try and race through them. Slow and steady. At this point, I still haven’t completed many of them.  I actually feel rushed.  It is true that my game time has fallen to maybe two or three hours a week, but I still feel that I have plenty to do to keep me occupied.

Each time I log on I have some activity that I can work on and make progress.  I’m never bored.

By this point, after five expansions, we should expect that content won’t come as fast as we’d like it.  I think that too often we jump into the game and try to do everything in a hurry.  If you set long term goals and maintain a moderate pace you’ll make the game last longer.

    I definitely do this as well, rep grinds, transmogs and mount runs. I’m still trying to get the Lich King to drop his mount. I find I spend more time on alts during droughts which is usually when I pick up my rogue.
