Happy new year!
Back at work now and everything is broken so I guess it is time for a post.
I’m not sure about scheduling a raid on New Year’s Day or why I thought it would fine for me to accept. I must have been under the assumption that I was going to have a nice, relaxing New Year’s Eve at home.
I forgot what hangovers were like.
I logged onto my goblin to test myself. Doing one 15-minute run through Gundrak was torture. Changed my raid status to Tentative, went back to bed….and didn’t wake up until 8 pm.
What else did I do on my time off?
Well, a long time ago I made a warrior. Ok, it wasn’t that long ago. But she got my patented “create something new, get all excited about it for a while, blog about it, then promptly stop playing and move onto something else” treatment.
Each month, if I remember and I have time, she gets played long enough to go out to Darkmoon Faire and do her little profession dailies and maybe turn in one of those eggs if someone has extra. And each month I think I should take her out and do some more.
She’s actually had a slightly different path than other belf’s (belves?) that I’ve made in the past. Instead of going out and doing the Tranquillen quests she went out to the Silverpine area and did the Forsaken quests out there. That’s where she kind of stalled out until I picked her up again a few days ago.
A few quests later she was out in Plaguelands doing the Fiona caravan story. And I just kept going. I zoom so many characters through dungeons that I miss so many quests and stories; it’s nice to get to see some of this stuff play out.
And I still don’t feel like I know what I’m doing. But I leveled her up so much that having her be in Outland by the time my vacation was up started to be a realistic goal. She made it with a couple of days to spare. Unfortunately for her, this may be where I start to lose interest again–because I have done the Outland and Northrend and Cata questlines so many times now that it will be hard to muster up the excitement to do them one more time.
A warrior, people, I leveled a friggin’ warrior. That’s how badly I did not want to do dailies.
