I am still playing wow, raiding with Febard on Silvermoon. We get a new content patch tomorrow, firelands with raid and new lvl 85 content, so if you wonder about taking another look at wow, then it might be worth a try.
I am also playing abit of EVE atm, doing industry alot and some lvl 3 missions in my battleship
Its a good game.. but as you say.. rather slow.
Then there is LotrO that is free to play.. I personally like it alot and they have used alot of the cash from going ftp to improve the game.. so thats a good thing.
My problem with the game is that its alot like wow.. so if you are already playing wow, or tired of it.. then there is not much point in playing it.
If you are interested in rts.. then there is Age of Empires online, beta.. its actually a really nice game, but I dont know if you can still find beta acces somewhere..
If you are interested in offline rpgs.. then I have had a blast with both The Witcher 2 and the Assassins creed series lately.. really good histories/games.
Ahh yes.. last one.. if you like heroes of might and magic.. they just opened up the closed beta for heroes of might and magic 6.. and you can get in if you preorder the game.
that were a few ideas.. contact me if you wanna hitch up for something in EVE
