Oh my goodness I hate hate hate that I’m writing this but
OMG I’M PLAYING WORLD OF WARCRAFT AGAIN!!!
I haven’t played in MONTHS. In fact, I stopped playing after this post And sure, I could have scrubbed that post, but this blog is the best tool for showing how a human bean can change her mind ALL OF THE TIME.
The new expansion, Warlord of Draenor, came out in November. And I resisted. In December, I would stare at the battle.net login screen and then close it out. In January, I logged into WoW and stood in the old zones while others played. By the end of January, I bought the expansion. And now…
Yes, even though I railed against it in the post above, I used the level 90 boost given to me in order to get my level 38 Warlock, Belaraela (randomly generated name) up to level 90. And I was right about one thing — skipping all of those levels means that I absolutely am worthless when playing her. But she’s still fun.
But Akromah, my Paladin, my Love, my one true WoW character is now level 100. She’s killing things slowly, she’s healing things poorly, it’s the same beautiful thing that happens at the beginning of every expansion. I don’t know what my endgame will be yet. I’m just having fun. I ran some LFRs this weekend, but I’m afraid to heal the Heroic 5-person dungeons. So, same story, different expansion.
Leota, World’s Worst Mage, is level 91. Snerk is level 90 and I’m leaving her in Halfhill for the time being to transmute Living Steel every day. Malerenne is 90. I’m going to take her through the beginning of the storyline so I can see the Alliance side of things and then I’ll probably switch her back to Horde.
This time around, though, I resolve to not let the rest of my life slide. I spend 8 hours a day Monday-Friday in front of a computer. I don’t want to spend 10 hours there on Saturdays and Sundays too.
