World of Warcraft: Free game time, race to raid first, and hotfixes

    
28

Curious about World of Warcraft’s latest content update, but you are on the fence about whether to resubscribe or not? You may have the option to try it out for free, as Blizzard has sent out three days of free game time for those inactive since March 25th. Check out your gift tab on the Blizzard launcher to see if you have this waiting for you.

Those who are playing Rise of Azshara can join the race to become the world first to complete the Eternal Palace raid tomorrow. Red Bull is hosting this with 24-hour coverage as top raiding guilds compete to reach and down Queen Azshara.

Meanwhile, Blizzard continues to fine-tune Patch 8.2 with smaller hotfixes, the latest of which made adjustments to the Eternal Palace raid, the Heart of Azeroth, and the PvP arena.

I do have my 3 days ready to go, and I’ve done the 9.65 Gb update, and I really do want to… But Conan Exiles won’t let go of me!

I’m far too busy with FFXIV at the moment to even give wow a sideways glance.

This was the first time everyone i know from my old guild got free time and didn’t even log in to keep names. Shadowbringers and Destiny 2 really locked everybody i play games with in this month something fierce.

The last time they gave away 3 free days I lasted one hour before I uninstalled the game. So no need to revisit Wow.

After having extensive playtime with 8.2, I don’t feel that I can recommend coming back for the game. So much frustration surrounding competition with your fellow players, whether it be mob tagging, node gathering, quest objectives being stolen in front of you or rare mobs being burned down in no time flat. And that’s for PvE!

As mentioned below, Nazjatar is not so fun before you get flight. Mobs are plentiful and aggravating to travel by in a number of areas.

The rep you gain from your average task in each zone is not much different from the original BfA factions. Enjoy seeing +75 or +50 rep.

It really feels like Blizzard is stingy with what fun you are allowed to have in the game. Want to pursue gear upgrades? Not without RNG you won’t. That Benthic gear system that’s supposed to help you gear with a token-like system? Even that’s got RNG in what stats they can have along with extras like gem sockets and special abilities.

I’m not spending nearly $20 a month on any single video game.

For some odd reason, I currently show 6 free days on my account, which don’t expire until July 21st. Apparently, I’m doubly hard to lure back. ;)

So true, Blizzard, so true.

Three days is more than enough time to remember why you quit in the first place.

I was excited about that free game time…but I lasted about 10 minutes.
