I logged into WoW last night…

… and it was still there!

And a large number of my guildies were still there too!

Since the birth of my son I’ve really struggled to make the time to play many games, and these days I’m more likely to be found dipping in and out of iPad games for a level or two at a time rather than making the commitment to play a large, complex game like WoW.

My interest in Rift waned pretty quickly after the last blog post. I’m not sure I have the time to learn a completely new game these days. I picked up Diablo III and I’m enjoying that, but I’ve never been able to bring myself to cancel my WoW account.

So I  just pre-ordered the Mists of Pandaria expansion. And I’m trying to make at least one evening a week to log in and play. Starting last night. All my characters are still there. The druid made it to 85, my Mage is 80, there are a host of supporting alts (thank goodness we’re getting an additional character slot in MoP or I’d have to delete someone to make a panda!).

There’s just one problem. I don’t have a clue what I’m doing! The game doesn’t stand still. I have new spells I don’t understand – what is this mushroom thing that druids get now?! I have forgotten how to play – I thought I’d try to get the Mage to 85 but she got killed by the third mob I tried to kill. So I did a few dailies and then noodled around on an alt.

I used to have time to read up on strategy and gearing AND play the game. But I can’t do that any more. So I’m going to have to just fumble my way through and see how I get on. I’ll probably be even more lost that usual!

  1. I’ve just come back too, as you know (yay for RealID!). I probably wouldn’t have if it weren’t for finding a decent guild to join, though. That’s made a *huge* difference. People genuinely wanting to help, all really chatty with everyone (so my rabbiting on isn’t frowned upon, thank goodness!), and who are able to help me figure out what I should do first, etc. (Harvest Moon, on Ghostlands…. FYI 😉 ).
    Don’t pay *too* much attention to the playstyles till a week on weds when the pre-MoP patch hits, is my advice. It’ll be a game-changer (ha ha!) and then’s the time to look up new strats etc.
    http://restokin.com is still a brilliant resource which has helped me out a fair bit in a short amount of time! 😉
