I think I may have hit a sweet spot with WoW.
I have an alliance main that I raid on twice a week max and an horde alt I'm leveling that I have no plans of raiding on.
As a raider in a less-than progressed guild, raiding gets very dull because we've reached a place where I don't think we're going to down any of the remaining bosses. People are starting to bring alts and that's a sign we've done all we're going to do.
I could chase after achievements but I'm at the point the achievements I could get take grinding. They don't give me a bite of the carrot on the stick that makes them fun.
But an alt does. Every time I play my alt I feel progression. I found out I could purchase a blue tanking libram with just 20 or so minutes of playtime and did just that last night.
Playing my alt is filling in for the lack of progression my main is missing. I'm hitting a sweet spot and it feels good!
