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.
