I could have taken part in the Cataclysm beta, but I chose not too. Here are my Top 10 reasons why I decided to wait to play Cataclysm until it is released some time later this year:
- I only have so much time -- might as well put it toward making my toons stronger.
- I'll let other people work the kinks out.
- I get bored enough repeating quests as it is. Why do the quests when they don't really count?
- I don't want to get accustomed to playing a level 85 mage, only to have to go back to my level 80 mage.
- Why level (or for that matter, play) with a character you can't bring into the "real" non-beta world? I'm not that ambitious.
- I've done the beta before: fallen in love (well, strong "like") with certain spells or abilities, only to have them taken away. (Mirror Image so rocked when it first appeared in the Wrath beta ...) I don't want to experience that pain again.
- Most of my guildmates won't be there. I like having my guild around.
- I actually don't think I'm a skilled enough raider to be any help with my feedback. I really need to do a boss encounter four or five times before I start to get it down well.
- If I am going to risk wife aggro, I want to risk it for something that counts.
- I'm not a fan of spoilers. I'd rather experience it all when it goes live.
