Change is Never Bad


A few changes happened over the last little while, some drastic (I suppose) and some not so drastic. First and foremost, I’ve switched games, again. I took a good long look at life (or lack there of) and decided to cut down my play time by a significant amount. Just because I have a house-wife life style doesn’t mean I should be dedicating a larger then normal portion of it to gaming, which was what I was quickly doing. While I am proud that my husband is able to support both of us while I take care of the home (no children to devote my time to remember) there’s still got to be ‘more’ to life. Not that ALL my time was spent gaming, but a good potion. Hopefully my readers are not too judgmental on me in that regard. Anyhow. So less play time (to me) meant that I wanted a game that took significantly less effort. I didn’t want something I could be drawn into for hours on end. Something less complex. Of course what else did that leave me with besides World of Warcraft (hah, I don’t mean for that to sound insulting, I’m aware that’s how it comes out though).

So yes, I’ve taken up residence in Azeroth (for now) as three characters on the Ravenholdt server. I have a 33 priest, 23 hunter, and 16 warlock. A few friends have decided to come play as well, for which I am eternally grateful. Growlius (who I played EQ2 as well as VG with), Zevad (from VG) and Gozad (also from VG) to name a few. If anyone else is interested in coming to play and maybe doing a few instances and what not, PLEASE feel free. I never intended on losing touch with people just because I’ve switched games (again). I’m on the horde side, and the server is a pvp / rp server. Alliance outnumbers (apparently) 3:1, but I’ve played here before and thus far am enjoying myself. I’ve got a far more limited play schedule then I was on before, which I am actually enjoying. You can typically find me in game on weekends (off and on) as well as from 7pm-10pm EST (or so) give or take a few hours here and there.

I admit, I’m one of those people waiting for the release of WAR (though honestly, I know nothing about it) just to see a new game. I’ve been slightly tired with what’s out there- I’ve been playing them for so long how could I not be.

Aside from the game stuff, I’ve started up a new blog, here. If you’re interested in reading more about me as a person and not so much me as a gamer, feel free. I’m not doing this for any particular reason other then my own personal venting mechanism. It’s therapeutic (so I’ve heard) to ramble on about boring things that no one except your family would be interested in. I’m keeping it seperate from this gaming blog because (though I know there are feeds) I’d rather not put people to sleep immediately (a good 10 seconds after reading is fine though). Some of my artwork and photography will also (hopefully) be displayed on there for people to check out. Maybe even some writing if I get brave enough, who knows.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, where ever they gamed.

    P.S. Fixed the comment issue Tipa – not sure how, but completely re-doing the whole site fixed it.. Yes, that’s my solution to everything.

    Enjoy WoW! :) It’s definitely the best lowbie PvE experience out there for the casual gamer. While I often knock the game’s end-game PvE and PvP, I definitely miss the leveling experience and all it had to offer the gamer with time restrictions.

    And let me officially welcome you to the WoW … (Waiting on Warhammer) Club. ;)

    Sorry Cordanim, yer not the only one apparently, got a pretty nasty email from my old guild leader when I decided to move on. :(

  5. Cordanim says:

    Oh surrrre, just as I join the guild in Vanguard, you take off – I see how it is :)

    Reddawn and I are going to try to be in Norrath a bit more now anyway, as he’s 70 now – almost caught up so we are going to get exploring and questing there :)

    Congrats on stepping away! I’ve been in a spot where gaming was a part time job, and it definitely wasn’t fun, so I know how liberating it feels to simplify.

    Best of luck in WoW, and I’m sure there will always be a spot for you in Telon if you ever want to visit. :D

    I’m more of a Nomad with MMO’s. When I grow tired of one I move on. I feel the way you do, gaming time is short, money is always needed, so why waste both on a game that becomes a chore?

    With VG its a chore right now. I last played EQ2, so maybe its time for some WoW!

    Wish you played on Icecrown though :> Now i have to make an new character

    Please do Mayadhros! Would love to say hellos – I always feel bad, as though I’ve ‘let people down’ when I switch around mmos – but honestly, if I’m going to pay to play I may as well be happy hmms?

  9. Mayadhros says:

    Hey! Been a while, sorry to see you left VG, but I can understand because I was getting burned out myself. Was toying around with reactivating WoW and may drop by to say hi.

    Also am waiting on WAR because I too want a new game to play.

    Hrms I’ll look into the comments thing, not sure what I broke, I’m so not good at this sorta thing *grumbles* Thanks for the heads up though!

  11. Tipa says:

    Heh, enjoy WoW :) We should definitely make plans to meet up in WAR. Also, comments are broken on your new blog :P
