While there are some quests that specifically call for grouping, most don’t… but do you group anyway? How many of you pick up a friend or guildie to quest with and how many grind the lonely roads alone?
I find that these days you can do most of the group quests alone, except for maybe one or two while levelling. It depends a little bit on your class, but most classes seem able to solo the group quest by now (I suspect thanks to heirlooms).
A lot of times I end up leveling alone, because others may either not be leveling anything at the moment or they’re at a different level to me. I’m in raiding guilds on both my Horde characters and Alliance characters – and while people do level new toons now and then, I suspect it’s not something you see as often as in a pure levelling guild.
That being said though, I actually really enjoy levelling together with someone! Maybe not all the time, but I like sometimes having a character or two that I level with a friend. It makes for a nice change in pace to the normally lonely levelling that I do.
The rare occasions when several people are levelling at the same time are one of my favourites. When you can go with three or more people and do dungeons at lower levels. You’ll still get a few random players – but not a full group of them.
And isn’t it always more fun to play together?
