I took a bit of break the over the weekend from the regular WoW Valor/FL Dailies grind and other things that have been popping up and I have to admit, it was refreshing.
Well, I just got to run around as a Troll Feral Druid, have some fun, earn my way since that character isn’t on a server where I can easily transfer a full kit of Bind On Account leveling gear and stop to smell the Peacebloom. Or pick them and sell them on the Auction House.
At about level 20, I decided I’d take a look at a casual guild and join it for a number of reasons (faster movement, XP and rep benefits aside). When I got into one.. er.. two actually, I joined one with my Goblin Shaman who duos with the LBO’s Goblin Hunter, I was quickly reminded of a number of things.
- It’s nice not being in charge sometimes.
- We’ve got a pretty good raid team in PS *eyeballing the LK 10 man kill this other guild did in February of this year and zero progression on any Cataclysm raid content*
- Raid kills should be worth FAR more Guild XP – it’s sort of sad that we’re just pushing 20 now while other guilds that barely raid are all capped out at 25 because… they have a ton of members.
- There are a lot players out there that just play the game for fun; and that’s a good thing to do sometimes.
- Fresh starts can be pretty fun.
- Durids are overpowered.
- Shamans are weird to play… especially ending up soloing as Resto because your son who is supposed to help has disappeared underwater pretending his Goblin Trike is a submarine.
- I hate Ogrimmar’s new layout – elevators to the Flight Master? Ugh. I miss my flying mounts.
- Azshara quests centered around that Mage are horrible to do – ew. Not your typical go here, kill this quests (yay) but lots of gimmicky mini-game-like play (which is god-awful to do with over 300ms latency).
