Play Habits

Recently I've decided to start playing Warcraft again as you may know. To me this decision was not arrived at easily because the last time I played I basically made it my life for about 2 years. I was completely un-prepared to do this again.

This weekend I decided I didn't really want to do anything, so I stayed home basically all weekend and played WoW. To me this was fine, I played and enjoyed myself. However, Saturday night when my brother got home from work he says to me, 'You realize you've been playing this game all day?' I say 'Yes, and I'm fine with that.' He looks at me like I'm insane but whatever.

Playing Habits

I don't really know what to say about this, I still enjoy the game and so sometimes I want to play excessively but I haven't had it happen yet. I think I'm fortunate in this way because I get in game do a couple quests kill some stuff and get a little bored and so move on to other things.

No complaints about the content yet, the two new areas I've seen are pretty amazing to look at and it's also pretty nice to see feral and balance itemization for Druids. This makes me happy, however I do feel a little odd replacing my phat lewts (epix/purplz/whatever) with greens.

TBC Follow-Up

So after some encouragement from friends of mine I went ahead and bought the expansion as well as new original disks so I could install it on the Mac I got recently.

I'm pretty determined to not get into raiding like I did last time because I think my addiction stemmed largely from having in-game obligations. This time I'm just here for fun so time to give 'er a spin.

Until next time.

The Burning Crusade?

The expansion has been released and now that I know it I've been thinking about picking it up to try the WoW waters once more. I suppose I do miss it a bit, I met some wonderful personalities while playing and I do think I would enjoy it again. My main concern of course would be getting completely sucked in again which is exactly what I want to not happen and I've learned I do have a tendency to have things happen that way. I find something I enjoy and then I do it all the time until I get completely burnt out on it.

Speaking with a good friend of mind he said, 'It's all about moderation.' Of course he's correct, I'm just worried about the discipline required I suppose.

So Much for My Addiction

As is evidenced by my complete lack of posting here, I've pretty much entirely stopped playing World of Warcraft. My account is still active, you know, just in case but the way things have been lately I'm not terribly optimistic.

In the last eight weeks or so I've probably been in game for about five hours. What can I say, I've been more interested in other things.

And so, best of luck to all of you out there that may happen upon this who are still playing.

Last night my brother, a friend and I went to see Gomez at the Bowery Ballroom in Manhattan. The Ballroom is a pretty awesome little venue from what I saw last night.

I had only heard a couple of songs my brother made me listen to before we went to the show so I was only somewhat aware of what to expect. However, I really enjoyed the music and the performance. The show itself was amazing and it turned out to be a thoroughly enjoyable night.

If you haven't heard of Gomez I'd encourage you to check them out, definately worth listening to.

Work for me has been a little strange lately. As I've mentioned before (I think) I'm a Java Developer for a small company. Recently I changed projects and have since been put on a new on as well. This means I have to pieces of software I'm supposed to be working to develop and or maintain.

The strange thing about this is I haven't really been tasked for either of them. Due to not really having work to do, I've been able to indulge in some day time battlegrounding. Now I've been playing my Warlock rather than my Druid because, to be quite honest, I really miss blowing stuff up.

In order to conform with my desire to blow stuff up I also respecced my Warlock to a Nightfall/Conflagrate build. This is basically a purely offensive kill stuff before it kills you build. It doesn't offer a whole lot in the way of survival, but I've been able to take a couple down with me before I run myself dry.

All in all its been fun, but I've been playing mostly Alterac Valley in order to get my hands on those fairly decent off-hands Therazane's Touch and Tome of Shadow Force. After a couple days of mid-day battlegrounding in Alterac Valley I finished today.

I'm extremely glad to be finished too. It seems a lot of the competition which used to be held between groups when it was just our server competing against each other is gone and its all about the reputation grind which could get terribly frustrating.
