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.
