Well I usually try to post my OOC posts over the weekend however, this weekend was a tad bit hectic. Since we got rained and snowed out for Mother’s Day, we did our celebration this past Saturday and I do believe that a good time was had by all. Now, the next big event will be my birthday which we also celebrated with the family on Saturday as well. It’s always nice to get together with the family and we always seem to have a good time talking and playing with the little ones.
I really need to apologize to a bunch of people because I haven’t been playing a whole lot during the past few days due to allergies and just not feeling good. I’m not real thrilled playing a video game when I am half stoned on allergy meds. My concentration level is probably that of a gnat at this point, however, I do log in until I just can’t deal with stuff and log out. I’ve learned over the years that if I’m not feeling up to snuff, log out, no matter what might be going on at the time.
I did roll a new character, just for grins. I’ve always like gnomes, never have leveled one to cap and I may not get this guy there, however, in the meantime, it’s been giggles and grins the whole time. There was the shortcut that I took this time of rolling a gnome Death Knight. Decked him out in full BOA gear after leaving the starting area and hit Outland. His name is Jonathan Rivertic, nickname is River, and he may not make it to 90 but in the meantime, it’s definitely kept me rolling with laughter. I may or may not boost him in the next month or two but for the time being, it’s just fun to play. Yes, I have had run running through Stormwind with “Train” going full bore on the emotes before vanishing through the portal to Outland to the more serious business.
One of the things that I have started pointing out to myself on a regular basis is that the game is intended to be “fun” and it’s not all about the competition and getting to be the “best’ at whatever class you want to be. Having 19 90s at this point, I think I’ve been busy enough and now it’s time to go back and start doing some other things. Just keeping up with the 90s is almost like a full-time job, however, I am taking the true casual approach. If I feel like running an instance with a character, I’ll do it, if I don’t feel like it, I won’t. I do have two mains that will definitely make it to WoD, however, I’m not sure how many others will be able to make the transition and I sure don’t mind playing Old Content.
I’ve also been reading the forums, never a good thing when you’re sure of mental faculties at any time, however, I have noticed the plethora of posts about “Flying – No Flying” in regard to the new expansion. I’m definitely pro-flying when it comes to the game, however, if my memory serves me correctly, they always start out with no flying until you cap anyway. If Blizzard decides to have a “no flying” policy for the duration of WoD in that area, that’s fine. There is so much else to do in the game that it doesn’t really matter to me. I love the whole game, however, I am also one of these people that does what they want to do and not necessarily what is dictated. If I feel pressured or stressed out about something, guess what, I don’t do it at that time, might go back and pick it up later.
I’m looking forward to the changes in WoD, however, I know there will be that killer learning curve at the beginning all over again, just like there always is. If I find myself not enjoying myself after a month or so, then, I’ll make the decision as to what it is I am going to do. I’ll probably keep playing and toddling along at my own pace since it doesn’t matter to anyone else other than myself.
