World of Warcraft celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2012, and Blizzard has released three expansions since then, all of which have added or changed content that has impacted the gameplay or leveling experience for players. This article will answer the question of whether it’s still worth playing World of Warcraft: Shadowlands in 2022 and offer some tips on how to catch up if you are returning to the game or new to it.
Will You Be Able To Play If You Start Now?
I will be able to play. Since I started playing in 2006, my account has been grandfathered into the new progression system. I can still keep my old characters and they will all have the same level of power as they did in 2006! However, if I were to start playing now, I would not be able to experience all the content that was introduced through Patch 9.2. One way for a new player to catch up is by doing one or two dungeons from each expansion on Heroic difficulty. Alternatively, you could just grind out your artifact weapon in order to unlock transmogrification (a feature which lets you change the appearance of your armor). Another option is to use Heroics Plus, which becomes available once you reach Level 100; this gives Level 110 players with an active subscription a chance at loot when running soloable quests on Heroic difficulty.
Get Involved In The Game Early.
The first thing to do is get involved in the game early. The earlier you start, the more time you have to progress and work through content that may be too difficult for a new or returning player. There are plenty of resources out there to help you catch up, including guides and wikis for every type of content. Take advantage of these resources so that when you reach endgame content, you will be prepared. Other than this one recommendation, I feel like World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is just as great as it was back in 2010.
It Is Now Easier Than Ever To Learn From Others.
In a previous incarnation of this article, I mentioned how difficult it was for new or returning players to catch up. Blizzard addressed all these concerns in Patch 9.2.
They did so by implementing an account-wide system that, after hitting level 110, unlocks the maximum level of gear for any class you choose to play. You can then switch classes and continue leveling for as long as you like without any gear restrictions. They also added a whole new raid tier, with over 100 bosses in total! With these changes and more, World of Warcraft has never felt more accessible than before.
If you're still hesitant about picking up World of Warcraft again or are looking for your first MMO, I would highly recommend giving it a shot in Patch 9.2!
Play At Your Own Pace.
Yes, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is worth playing in 2022. In response to player concerns regarding gameplay and content, Blizzard implemented a play-at-your-own-pace system. This allows players to explore the game at their own pace without feeling behind. With this new system, new players can enjoy the game at a slower pace, which is more comfortable for them. They can also use this time to catch up on other things, such as work or school. The new system also allows returning players to catch up and experience all the new content. As a result, when you come back after not logging in for a few weeks, you can catch up with friends who have been playing the whole time! We are entering a new era after ten years of change; the time is now to make a fresh start.
Focus On Improving Yourself Instead Of The Game.
The most important thing to remember is that you should always improve yourself, not the game. Think of it this way: if you're playing a game with really bad graphics but the mechanics are really good, then that's a good game to play. But if you can't stand the graphics and they're not improving, then it's time to move on. Games are meant to be fun, and if you find that your current game isn't meeting your expectations, it's time to try something else. As long as you know what kind of gaming experience you're looking for in advance and take some time for research before making a purchase decision, there's no reason why playing World of Warcraft in 2022 will be any more difficult than today. If you want an easygoing PvE environment where you can group up with other players and complete quests together, then maybe Warlords of Draenor is right for you. If raiding and competitive PvP rank high on your list of priorities, then Mists of Pandaria might suit your needs better. Keep in mind that these are just my opinions though; I'm still only one player after all!
