Two real life friends have decided to take a break from WAR and return to play WOTLK. *Sigh* Their decision doesn’t have an immediate impact on my game play since they rolled Destruction and I rolled Order. As it happens they rolled on my server thinking that they would run across me in game and gank me. Too bad for them that even at my casual pace, I’ve out leveled their lame asses. *Kisses*
I’ve fallen a tad bit behind the guild crew that I’ve been grouping with when the opportunity presents itself. I really enjoy their company. We share similar levels of chattiness and can tolerate each other’s humor. I would say enjoy, but I think a couple of them might simply be suffering in silence. During the week they stay online later than I do. Fortunately, they come on considerably earlier than the bulk of the guild. The hour or so before they get on I can solo which helps to unwind from my day at the Funny Farm, before attempting to be social and civil. If they happen to be on before me because I’ve worked late, I'm often greeted by a group invite the minute I materialize in game. They are a great bunch which is one of the reasons I’ve been afraid of losing pace with them. Now that we’ve hit Tier 4, I don’t have to worry anymore. There are no other rank divisions that can bar me from playing with them. *Whew*
90% of the way to Rank 32, I spend 50% of my time soloing chapters in Empire, 25% in Scenarios and 25% with a small group of guild members. The Empire scenery is back to the architecture and climate that I enjoy most in MMOs. I follow my buds to whatever zone they want to do for that session but I spend my personal time in Empire’s T4. I can’t wait to begin leveling in Praag! I want to hit that zone and never leave. I don’t have any great pictures yet. My visits there so far have been during Open RVR with little time for sightseeing. I will definitely be taking plenty of pictures once I hit those content chapters.
We also did our first run of the T4 instance Bastion Stair. Here’s a quick picture from there. We’ve only started the first wing which was very cool. I’ll do a proper post on it soon.
