Ah yes, world of warcraft. When they offered a free mount in exchange for 6 months of game time, I just couldn’t say no, especially since I had a lot of blizzard cash saved up. I returned to the game just as 8.2 released, though I had no idea of it at the time.

I spent a few days doing simple tasks, checking the auction house, trying to earn some money, looking at my characters and wondering what they were supposed to do. I’ve been playing a monk as my main for a few years now, and decided to continue along with that.

I found myself in Nazjatar, with ilevel 350, and in my tank spec I’m pretty over powered. A few quests later, I learned how to upgrade my necklace and I’m sitting at 370 ilevel, with some pretty nice 400 gear. I still only have a vague idea of what I’m supposed to be doing, but it’s fun, and it feels wonderful to be playing again. Even if I spent most of my time doing pet battles.
