A man in armour is his armour’s slave.

Dear Blizzard,

I am writing to inform you that you can delete my character; I don’t need it any more. I haven’t needed my character for some time now, and certainly since I started playing Wrath of the Lich King my character has been nothing but a dead weight that I’ve had to drag along behind me. You see, my character does nothing any more, I have gained all of two new spells in the ten levels I have achieved, and a couple more from talents that I was basically able to get at level seventy anyway by not delving too deeply into any other talent tree. To be honest, other than an incremented level number my character has hardly changed at all throughout this entire expansion and much of the last one, it’s just a mobile mannequin for my armour and weapons. Sure, my armour and weapons have changed as I’ve leveled, my armour and weapons changed almost daily until the end game! And of course then there is the end game itself, which is all about yet further incremental changes to my armour and weapons.

So you can delete my character, for it plays no role in this game; just animate my armour and weapons so that I can move them around from place to place, and give them my class abilities, and I’ll be good to go for the next five or so expansions.

Love and kisses,


P.S. If you’ve ever wondered why many people stop playing the end game or incessantly whine about the end game, and either roll alts or leave for other games, I’ve left a clue as subtle as Mythic’s marketing department in the above text.
