This was my plan all along!
My, my. Should have written "answering". Does not prohibit the use of first person, however. Has used it before (fairly certain, anyways). Does usually indicate poor phrasing. Example: "Would not, but we would." Begrudgingly allows that. Prefers, "Would not. Would," (with a "however" or "though" inserted, occasionally). Applies to verbs such as "think" and "believe" sometimes. Partially circumvents the form, if relied upon too heavily. Still requires them in select scenarios, of course.

The devs are just doing it wrong, and it seems to me like it is too late to fix it. I've been very active on the forums pretty much since Vanilla, and a few of my suggestions have actually made it in to the game almost entirely intact, but it seems to me that the community is being entirely ignored, now. Entirely ignored. Zarhym, one of the coolest CMs on the forums, was actually talking with us over one of the current 'top issues' in PvP, Feral Druids, and then I go off and see what he posts in another thread, or what another CM posts, and /sigh. I'm just kind of done with it all.
Enjoys it more than before. Added different avenues to obtain gear. Plays alone or with random people (see: unrated battlegrounds or random dungeons). Recalls the Vanilla days. Refused to join almost all by-invite groups. Could not get player versus player armor without constantly grinding battlegrounds (did not care much for player versus player, either). Only had the Timbermaw for soloable reputations. Relied on tailoring, random drop chance, quests, and the auction house for my equipment. Made water four at a time, too. Would have loathed providing food and drinks for twenty-four to thirty-nine other players.
Appreciated the ever-increasing number of reputations that popped up in later expansions. Completed the Shattered Sun Offensive dailies daily, just for a chance at Badges of Justice. Was awarded the Crusader title on two to four characters. Received my first piece of tier gear (nine) through random dungeons. Gave me enough confidence to do Icecrown Citadel (before and during the buff). Never killed Arthas or came close, unfortunately. Still carries Nibelung (along with a minimum of a bag and a half of other fun items). Dedicates large zones to dailies with rewards now. Awaits the new set bonus currently.
Still has issues, of course. Cannot code Ignite to function properly. Is at the mercy of the random number generator. May not spread all of my damage over time effects. Cannot utilize engineering in Tol Barad. May not cast Flame Orb or Blink near miniscule bumps. Attacks unnecessarily. Favors the newer World of Warcraft to the older version regardless.
Hopes Guild Wars will entertain you. Can be refreshing to play something different. Might change your mind after some separation. If not? Oh well.
