Take a guess where this is headed. I played EQ2 for 2 weeks, reached level 20... and got bored. Take one wild, friggin' guess where I am spending my MMO time right now.
If you guessed somewhere in the Outlands, around Shadowmoon Valley, you were right.
I don't get it. I'm just unable to really enjoy any existing MMO except WoW right now, as much of a dead-end I know it is for me because I don't raid and don't have anyone to do the arenas with. I'm too casual for WoW's end-game, but I'll be damned if the path to that end isn't the best made of the whole MMO scene to date, even nearly 3 years after its launch.
My wife started playing before I came back, but on a different server with a friend of ours who's about as hardcore as they get. Seeing her having fun again with it, only made me miss Azeroth all the more. So I'm back. I can't transfer my Hunter or other characters to her server because theirs is PvP and mine is PvE, but I don't mind. I still have a few friends left on Blade's Edge, and I have the goal of getting my flying mount to achieve still.
Will I actually get to 70 this time? Meh... who knows. I do know Pirates isn't out anytime soon, and I know it's still 29 days until Hellgate: London hits the shelves, so at least I have time on my side. We'll see if I can't find some solace in familiarity for a while as I wait.
Is anyone else sharing my "Gah, I can't find a home!" feeling right now? When I'm not playing WoW, I'm left hopping between Oblivion, NWN2, Mythos, and the betas I'm in... but all I really want is one solid game to occupy my imagination. Maybe I'm just too picky. Bah well... enough whining. Thanks for reading.
