Catch Up With What’s Not Going On…

October 13th

I think that I am one amongst several thousands of people that are all kind of waiting for the other shoe to drop when it comes to the patch tomorrow in World of Warcraft.  I know that I have been apprehensive for quite some time and not real sure how I am going to deal with all of the changes.  Of course, this is the same feeling that you get each time you have a pre-expansion patch being dropped and after almost ten years of playing, that feeling happens each and every time.

I will admit that I haven’t completed all of the things that I had set out to do six months ago with my game play, however, it’s something that I will live through and will pick right back up where I left off.  One of the things that I won’t be able to do is to finish up my Alliance guild to Level 25 because that is going away tomorrow.  I will definitely miss all of the challenges that leveling a guild solo brought to me while I went toddling along with it.  At least I did get my Horde guild leveled completely up and that’s fine because I have started playing primarily Horde anyway.  I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that I have played mostly Horde since I came to my current realm.    I will probably continue to play what I enjoy and adapt to the changes and if I find that I no longer care for the game, I’ll drop it like a bad marriage.

One of the things that I am happy about is the fact that I have finally replaced my laptop that I gave away several months ago.  What that actually means is that I will be able to do some of the things that I like to do and that is to write more than I have been in the past few months.  Oh, I know that my writing isn’t all that great but it is something that I like to do and I like to live vicariously through my characters in World of Warcraft – they can do all of the things that I no longer am capable of doing in RL.  Oh, to be able to run like the wind, leap over things without a thought and actually be able to jump on a flying mount and be on my way without any worries about the traffic. Oh, wouldn’t that be lovely in RL!!

I’m still sitting here thinking that I should be playing World of Warcraft instead of just rambling on, however, I just got my Alliance guild to 24 this morning by running crazy with the Faire that just ended and rolling a new character and blazing my way along in my BoA gear to just have things to do. Nope, no cape for me and no Garrosh kill – this will be the first expansion since I started playing that I will not be making it to end-game.  Does it bother me?  Not really because I have really enjoyed playing the game my way and exploring all of the places and doing some of the fun things that I like.

So, be prepared for more writing and more posting on my WordPress account in the future.  Good luck to everyone with the new patch and the new expansion in another month. Am I going to jump into WoD with both feet from the beginning?  No, I really am not all that excited about the new expansion with the changes that Blizzard has implemented.  I almost can bet that this will be the last expansion (if there is another) that I will ever preorder.

  1. Considering you pretty much leveled your Horde guild solo, with all its myriad achieves,all the way to 25.You shouldn’t feel bad about not getting your Alliance guild there.. heck the one was a major achievement.Level 24 is pretty damn good.. you deserve a pat on the back for a job well done.. I admit, I was getting pretty burned out on WOW there for awhile.. but after reading the updates,and looking at new models.I’m finding myself getting excited about WOW again. Now if I can get my computer to behave

    • Oh, I’m sure that you will come leaping back into the game in the near future, however, getting a new computer is a must have because I know your old one bit the big one and died. Heck, I am looking forward to logging in today to see all of the changes. Oh well, getting the Horde guild all the way up with a lot of the achievements is one thing that I am happy that I was able to do, almost took two years, however, it’s worth it. The Alliance guild is only a year old, so, I guess it went okay, however, I didn’t spend as much time in that guild as I should have – most of the people that I hang out with are on Horde.

      I even took screen shots of a lot of my characters to get their action bars, talents and glyphs in hardcode so I know where I left off and what might be missing when I log back in. You never know, it’s one of those things that we all go through with each and every single new expansion – this time “I am prepared” – I hope.

  2. I was happy I got my Alliance guild to 25 but then it took me from the end of Wrath to MoP to do it. My Horde were late starters so they were working on level 7.

    I know, I love to live vicariously through my characters, they’re much more athletic and never seem to break anything in a fall, lol. And what I wouldn’t give for a flying mount over here.

    • Oh, I always live through my characters and just enjoy all of the fun things that they can do physically that I know I can’t do in RL – To be able to run a marathon for hours like they do would be something that I might make it six blocks before collapsing into a gasping for air thing lying on the ground (must stop smoking).

      LOL with my being retired and pretty much house-bound for the most part, I did have plenty of time to sit at my computers and play to my heart’s content.
