Yup, Molasses. That thick dark syrup that cartoon characters get stuck in. With the Wrath train slowing down from full steam ahead mode to just barely moving mode. Everywhere you look you see people winding down and becoming sloths. Its official WoW has become dead, the only thing that is motivating us is Cataclysm. No point lying about it.
I was discussing with a few guild members today about the upcoming expansion and it turns out -big surprise- some of them won’t be renewing their accounts till Cataclysm. There are a number of ways to keep yourself occupied until the earth shattering event. Although with it being summer, and raid attendance being shot some of these “ways” are coming quickly to an end.
Inspired by Anea from Obeying the Muse’s post about agenda’s here are some of mine.
Anslym: Trying for 40 reputations at Exalted. I only have 17 more. While that seems a lot, but really if I really wanted to I could knock 13 of them of everyday for 13 days. 3 of them are Daily reps, and the last one is Karazhan. By my count, with some easy effort I could have this done by September (well Kara is iffy).
Chmelyk: Trying for Dungeon set 2 + Benediction. Farming up 4 level 60 instances for the dungeon set 1, followed by a few quests and boom. Done that one. Benediction requires The Eye of Divinity to drop from MC, Already done it this week and I have a steady group to run it weekly.
Trynda: Trying for the lastest PvP set. Get her to 80 (she’s level 71) and run a bunch of Random BattleGrounds doesnt sound all that hard either.
Overall: Over throw Mug’thol’s gem runner “blank” has marketed over 5000 gems in the last week alone. I plan to get my golds worth for Cataclysm.
All of these goals are achievable and I plan to achieve them. Even if a guild perk in Cataclysm is +20% rep gain. At level 85 I could probably solo MC, and with rated BG’s it’ll become easy to get PvP gear . . . thats not the point. I need filler, we all do. So find something you wish to do and make it happen as a way to tide over till Cataclysm, why? Because I wanna hear about it. So what are you guys doing to tide yourself over?
