Single Player* WoW

Hey guys, I know this may seem like an odd question, but I’ve been curious for a while if WoW is worth it as a single player experience? I played during Legion and BFA and quit just after Shadowlands started and play quite a bit of TBC with my friends. Any time I played retail it was with a guild doing mythic dungeons and some raiding, but honestly I just kinda want to play by myself for a bit. I don’t wanna do dungeons, I don’t wanna raid, I don’t care about PvP, I just wanna spend time in Azeroth and still feel like there’s some form of long term progression. This is already longer than I intended so I’ll leave it at that, thanks in advance for any tips on how to get back to enjoying the game 🙂

  1. Wenn u focus on the single player content: basically Quests and exploration, you still have high level content like.. u can do past expansion raids and dungeons. Collect transmog .. but basically i would say yes. Its a limited content, but its fun 🙂

  2. Yes. There’s still a crazy amount you can do solo. Playing solo only limits you from dungeons, raids and PvP (if you count that). WoW offers a lot more than that nowadays.

    You can level alts, quest, get achievements, collections like mounts, pets and transmogs, pet battles and a lot more. I’d recommend checking out Kraken Latte’s YouTube channel, she only does solo content and you can see how much stuff she still does.

  3. You can do a lot solo.

    You can play through the current story, first Korthia and then Zereth Mortis. Zereth Mortis has a few fun puzzles and World quests, where you will have fun for the first two to four weeks.

    The current content has an improved Torghast, which can be a fun to solo, you can slowly pregress up the floors until you need better gear than the Zereth Mortis Cath-up gear, which is around floor 15.

    Trying to complete Loremaster is always a good solo challenge. Just play a few alts and complete all the story-quests in each zone. You can even get the zones on different characters, which is why I suggest leveling a few alts to get the achievement. You can also get all the exploration achievements while you are at it.

    You can also solo old dungeons and raids to get transmog and mounts. You can also do solo Islands from BfA.

    I would say you should start with the new content and when it gets boring try leveling alts or farming old instances. When you are bored of it all, end your subscription and wait until you want to play again.

    I’d suggest getting into collecting mounts, transmog, and pets. Try the mage tower if you want some challenge. You can go into BGs solo, but that’s mostly a miserable experience, especially this expansion.

    Honestly, pet battles are often overlooked but can be a lot of fun. WoW has over 1500 unique pets to collect. Though not all of them are still available, the vast majority are. Some special encounters can actually be quite difficult, so there’s challenge to be found as well.

  5. Dunno your content but no dungeon and raid is like playing a single player.

    If you like collecting transmog and stuff or just do so e dailies the game is fine

  6. Depends what you mean by “worth it”. At over £100 a year, possibly not. Especially given some of the alternative game world’s you could explore for much less, which are aimed at or better accommodate a single player experience.
    But only you can decide that 🤷‍♂️

  7. Can’t understate the challenge that Mage Tower poses for the single-player experience. Now that it’s a permanent feature, you could spend quite a bit of time completing the Mage Tower on multiple specs/classes.

  8. There is content but nothing really challenging and they’ve been lacking on content that isn’t inside raids or dungeons

    Countless mounts and cosmetics to farm in old content tho and you can get high enough gear for that as single player on zereth mortis

    Tho I’d say ffxiv has more single player content so if wow doesn’t live up to what you’re looking for give that a shot
