Tired?

Filed under: World of Warcraft — Andrew.Rowbottom @ 12:51 pm

Last night’s raid has reminded me how much I really enjoy raiding with the Munquis.

Unfortunately things are going quiet on that front with low attendance, opisthorchiasis certainly mine. Because I ride a motorbike to work; if the weather’s looking like it might contain snow I have to use the train and that means I don’t get home until after raid start time. So I sign up as tentative or not at all. So that’s another raid that doesn’t happen for me, and sometimes for the guild.

Then there’s the whole grinding for badges for gear front, which, like all grinds is getting to be a grind. I think I’m going to stop forcing myself to join LFG every day just for the frost emblems, it’s plain stupid! I’m slowly but surely getting wise to you Blizzard! Not that I won’t run randoms, just that I’ll be doing it with guildies from here on in.

So that’s one change I’ll be doing right away.

In guild there seems to be a general, slight, defection to the new kid on the block “alods”, now I’ve not played it, but I’m kindof imagining what’s happening there is that guildies are re-discovering the joys of leveling up alts. Only this time an alt in another world. Or maybe not.

I haven’t given it much thought, but  I’m beginning to wonder if a shakeout is needed. Perhaps a guild hop, or game hop, or, heaven forbid, going cold turkey. Though that last idea is not particulary paltable.

Spending more time “in-guild” should help me see how I’m feeling.

  1. I don’t think it’s exactly a “defection”.
    Sometimes it’s nice to get away for a while, and meet new people, and do new things. Allods might just be a passing phase, that nobody can be bothered with by next week.

    But hey… It hasn’t cost anything to try.

    Although some find it hard to believe, there are other games apart from WoW. The downside is that when you’re playing them, you’re not playing WoW, and Blizzard punishes you for that.

    Allods is free, and seems to be quite social / casual freindly, One of the first things Knicks said to me when she joined was along the lines of… “I think some of the others would love this”.

    And ‘No’ I’m not being paid anything by gPotato (the Devs).
