Elsewhere people are leaving guilds, or finding that their guilds are getting healer-short.
We’ve lost a tank and a healer (one to a break, one to another server),
and in a small guild, that’s making it harder for us to get Kara and
Z’A runs together. And, to be honest, I’m about a dozen group quests
away from being essentially done with Burning Crusade content. Maybe a
little while spent doing Netherwing dailies, and the odd instance run,
but otherwise – done. And, frankly, unless you’re a really high-end
raiding guild, working your way through the Sunwell Plateau bosses, the
last big content patch of 2.4 has felt somewhat flat.
So, we’re already trickling into the Wrath of the Lich King lull. We know there’s a year of more of good content coming, but we don’t know when. And that leaves us an indeterminate amount of time to fill until it arrives. Many of those people retiring are probably just stepping down until the expansion lures them back into a levelling frenzy.
So, what now?
Well, not PvP. I made the mistake of getting heavily into PvP before Burning Crusade was launched, sucked in by the old school ladder system (Knight Captain, thank you very much), and I really regret all the time I invested in it now. And I probably won’t take a break, because I do value the downtime from work and other stresses WoW gives me. So, the chances are I’ll start on a gasp alt.
Which gives me a dilemma. Do I write about my alt-tastic experiences here, on Leafshine.net? Or do I push them over onto another blog? Decisions, decisions…
