It’s 2016. Another year has gone by, and while I didn’t write quite as much as previous years, I’m still ever so happy with my little corner of the internet. This will be the 10th year that I’ve had MmoQuests up and it has been a real pleasure getting to know everyone in the community over the years. I’m looking forward to a fantastic 2016, and I’ve set out a schedule that should help with my reluctance to blog every day. I’ll be posting three times a week here, and then dedicating two other days to other blogs (I have a book review blog and a knitting blog for those who didn’t know and were interested).
I’ve been working on my shipyard in World of Warcraft, and while it is yet another garrison grind it can also be quite profitable. I have been risking my ships a bit more here and there and while I haven’t lost one yet I know it’s bound to happen eventually. I continue to complete my daily faction quests so I can get closer to flying in draenor which also gives me a lot of loot to sort through. Weekly raids round out part of the days, along with working on achievements. I’m currently trying for the T3 fishing shack which requires me to spend a lot of time fishing. Thankfully there’s no end to Netflix shows to watch, so it’s not quite as bad as it could be if I were just standing around fishing with nothing extra to do.
When garrisons had first been announced I really wanted it to be actual housing. I think that WoW has a perfect platform for allowing characters to design their own home plots, and their denial of adding this to the game has been stubbornness. People enjoy player housing, and I just feel that garrisons could have been so much more (and I know I’m not alone in this feeling).
I joined a new casual guild yesterday. The guild I was in was being incredibly rude and racist. I know, it’s world of warcraft and sometimes it’s hard to see beyond that sort of community, but I don’t think that’s an excuse for treating other human beings like crap. It wasn’t long before I found myself in a new guild. This one has almost 1,000 members and typically has 50 on at any one time. A lot of the general comments are still rude but I always have such a hard time in WoW finding a guild that suits me that I’m willing to overlook it for now. I play on Area 52 as Horde if anyone has any suggestions.
I haven’t made any big resolutions for this year, especially not in gaming. I typically fall through on them so I just want to take it easy and see where my gaming goes naturally. I do have plans of a ‘special’ post on Wednesdays, maybe one that explores one of my unplayed steam games, but again I’ve tried to direct my posts this way in the past and I always end up failing. All I can do is dust myself off and try, try again!
Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself.
