WoW

For those of you now into wow on my f-list, you can ignore this cause it will likely be jibberish. But I'm having one of those days, so...

Ok, I'm been playing wow for two years now. I can hardly believe how much time I have sunk into this game lol. I've taken breaks, but somehow I always come back. I admit it, I am truly addicted. It's sad, but WoW is harder to quit than caffine or cigarettes. Seriously. If you are not hooked, don't start :P (But if you do, let me know and we can do a Refer a friend lol)

Anyway.

After two years, I have played ever class a little (although I've never gotten a warrior past like 15 or a rogue past about 25). I have leveled two priests to 80, as well as a mage, a paladin, and a druid. I have a hunter (who was my first 70 back when that was the level cap) sitting at 78. I have another druid at like 60. And a lock (my baby toon) who's now 57. Sad, right? I think I have something like 140 combined played days. And that doesn't count the toons I deleted along the way. Which are quite a few, and some of them in the 30s.

See what I mean? Addiction.

Anyway.

Somewhere in the process, just like in fan fic, you make friends and then both move in other directions.

So today, I was going through some of the people I've loved and lost on www.wowheros.com

And you know what? A lot of the people I respected as knowing so much/being ubergeared gods? DOn't seem that way now. Oh, some do. But a lot of them, I'm as geared as them.

Now, I can't help but be curious as to why this is. I know they raid more, and more hardcore, than I do. Is it really the way they've changed badge gear? It almost has to be.

Then that brings me to question 2. Is this a good thing? I'm still not sure. Part of me says yes. It certainly has been for me! I could never have geared up all of the above 80s (and they aren't all 'geared' but they are all acceptably geared for instances and heroics and naxx) without badges. But at the same time, there is something to be said for looking at a toon on the armory and seeing them in all purples and knowing that they're all drops.

I think.

Thoughts?

I think that they've changed badge gear because not everyone can get into those raids where you get those leet drops or there're those unlucky ones who run those instances constantly but can never seem to get the drops. I think it helps even the playing field a little (like myself, Narci wouldn't be nearly as well geared as she is without badge gear).

It's a good thing because then those people can run the end game content without being rejected because they have crap gear because they never get to run those raids, and so on. It doesn't make things easier, per se, just more accessible and less frustrating.

*hugs you* my son is really (really really) into WoW and he has tried to get me into it too. So far I have resisted the pull so I really have no clue what you are talking about. I wanted to say that I love you. *loves*
DON'T DO IT!!!!

But if you do, roll a toon on Bronzebeard and let me know. Mar and I both play there. I miss you too! A ton! How is your sister? And your girls? We need to catch up! Are you ever on yahoo anymore?
It would totally Rock if I could play with you and mar!!! I miss you tons too. I am not on yahoo because my gestaltrose account was made inaccessible so I. Sister is cool the girls are great, one just had strep but she got a shot and is now better. We do need to catch up. *loves more*
well, if you decide to let me know. We play alliance there. I have horde on a different server, but i rarely play them, even though i really prefer horde. Weird how that happens, huh?

IMO really at this point gear is gear. I have alts running the gambit as you know. I have some that probably could use a bunch of gear, and some that need nothing. just do what is fun and don't worry about it. addiction or not(and i know it is trust me) it is still a game do what is fun. If your lvl 5 alt is more fun to play than gearing one of your 80s, then play it and fuck whoever trys to say otherwise. :)
yeah. although the day has come when i'm alted out. it just isn't fun now. :D

Maybe when cata drops and I can make a worgen. I think i'm ready for a hiatus in general atm. it's starting to feel like work, and that's no fun. meh.
