I can tell you that I’ve been busy all summer and that’s why I havent posted anything. I can tell you that the reason for not posting was because I’ve been busy packing for moving to university. I could tell you that I’ve been so busy playing alts that I just forgot about posting here. I could tell you that I’ve been so busy in the firelands that that’s all I’ve been focused on. But I’d be lying.
I haven’t done anything this summer other than watch all 7 season of grey’s anatomy, all 4 season of Burn notice, and more. That should give you a good idea of what I’ve been up to this summer. I haven’t packed a single thing for university either. I’ve called it quits on all my alt’s because my guild is server transferring sometime in the forseeable future and I can’t afford to bring over all my characters so what’s the point of leveling them? I’ve only downed Shannox once in firelands because I don’t have a raid group. All in all I guess the reason for me not posting is because there’s nothing to post about. I guess I rather leave the blog blank instead of it looking like this:
Day 1: Dear readers, today I did my molten front dailies and ran a few troll dungeons.
Day 2: Dear readers, today I did my molten front dailies and ran a few troll dungeons.
Day 3: Dear readers, today I did my molten front dailies and ran a few troll dungeons.
Day 4: Dear readers, today I did my molten front dailies and ran a few troll dungeons.
Day 5: Dear readers, today I did my molten front dailies and ran a few troll dungeons.
Day 20: Dear readers, today I did my molten front dailies and ran a few troll dungeons.
Day 32: Dear readers, today I did my molten front dailies and ran a few troll dungeons.
Day 78: Dear readers, today I did my molten front dailies and ran a few troll dungeons.
Because that’s all I’ve been doing, my gaming experience felt… off. There a number of reasons for this.
First off: Lack of raiding. Raiding is what progresses the story and that’s my number one love of this game. The Story. I was pulled in a few times as a fill-in but it only scratches the itch, not satisfies the need. Look at me the virgin making sex references. LOL.
Second off: I don’t like change. WoW was my safe-haven from change. I’m moving out and going to university almost 200km away (125 miles?). That’s fine, nothing’s different in WoW right? My core raiding group has mainly left the game. dps: got jobs and can’t play, transferred off the server to join a raiding guild, Went to go play with family/friends on another server. Tanks: we never really had permanent ones. Heals: had a baby and can’t really play anymore (which is understandable). It feels like Stalkuren and I are the only ones left from pre-cataclysm. Our guild has an influx of new members, people I don’t even know! But instead of me making friends with them I just shun them and keep in my little clique.
Flashback: I login on a morning a few days ago. An officer that I can call a friend is only, we start talking about guild stuff and then a new member logs on. He asks what we are talking about and I point him to the guild website to find out (I hate that our guildleader who barely plays the game anymore due to the new baby, took time away from his family and his money to build us this website that no one uses) after some back and forth between the three of us he finally learns of our impending server transfer. He starts complaining how he convinced 3 of his irl friends to transfer to our guild from other servers. I say this, word for word, “Shitty, if you check the guild website you would have known three weeks ago.”
I know it was a little mean, but he was a new person he hasn’t done anything to earn my friendship why should I be nice? I know I’m painting a horrible picture of the kind of person I am, but please note I was doing the molten front dailies… refer a few lines up. I wasn’t in the best mood to take someone complaining about something like him. He then proceeds to call me a bunch of names I would rather not like to mention here and he then proceeds to /gquit. He later came back and I was told to treat new members with compassion and patience. The reprimanding officer and I had a three-hour conversation on the state of the guild and how we both feel overwhelmed with the guild ratio of 80% of our roster having just joined in the past 3 months.
I did just as the officer suggested and instead of looking at what was, I’m looking to what is now, and what could be later. Which fixed the funk that I’m in. Last night I decided to accept a raid offer from a group made up of all new people. We downed Nefarian which was my first time downing an end boss in Cataclysm.
So from here on out I’m not looking to what was (non-posting) but I’m looking to what is (Finished with the Molten front, one kill away from Anslym the Flamebreaker, and I’m riding around on my Amani Battle Bear) and to what will be (Lore posts, guides, and more fanfiction).
Thanks for reading and sticking by.
