Dec 22nd 2010 2:10PM While it isn't a very constructive post, it does indeed have something to do with a blue post today.
Jul 19th 2010 1:41PM I think I will go "outside" in the "sunlight" and maybe work in "the yard" a bit.
Jan 7th 2010 9:46AM Friendly people willing to talk about anything and who avoid the Epic Loot Nerd Rage, just enjoying the game and not too stressed about attendance. Oh, and they take a "Oops, misdirected onto the healer again" wipe in stride, no epic screams on Ventrilo. The members of Kindred Spirits (A - Gnomeregan) have endured me for several years now, always willing to help if needed, and never holding that extra adult beverage against me. The Spirits rock! :)
May 19th 2009 5:27PM I really enjoy a good story/quest arc, and tend to save them for weekends and other times where I can sit down and focus for extended play sessions. Although the "kill 10 rats" stuff is great for my hit-and-miss playtimes (I work on the road, so sometimes get 10-15 minutes here and there while waiting), the epic quests like in EverQuest were a real treat. I still smile thinking back to when my EQ Halfling Druid (don't bother with the jokes, I've heard them already) got his Epic 1.0 after an all-nighter, over a case of beer, and, sadly, bailing out on work the next day (yeah, I laid out of work to get my Epic...). The guildies all pitched in with the big fights, the quests rolled along, and it was a great time for me. That kind of stuff seems to be missing in Warcraft (my current evil hobby). Personally, I think WOW should put another UI option in below the "Instant Quest Text" called "don't bother with quest text, just print how many of what to kill/collect". It's not interesting enough to me to even bother reading. Rock on Carbonite and your magic arrows...
It's been a long time, but the Paladin quest for Verigan's Fist (I think it's level 20ish) was a great time for me in WOW. Sure, it was only 3 hours or so, drawn out by my need to run everywhere to get flight points. But it seemed like a rite of passage for the class. Would be nice if there were more things like it. However, with all the new WOTLK stuff obsoleting the TBC stuff that obsoleted your Old World stuff, there's just not much satisfaction in to be had in working too hard for that old stuff...
Anyway, not sure if that's even relevant to the topic, but I've typed way too much to quit now.
PS: Huge thanks and wave to Aello for the Verigan's help, and Vero for the Druid Epic help. If either of you happen to read this, you rock ;-)
