I continue to be extremely busy at work and at home. I still haven’t played anything in the past several weeks. On the weekends I catch up on gaming news via my favorite videocasts and podcasts. I’m very excited about the upcoming content updates for Rift. Most especially, I’m chomping at the bit for the solo dungeons being introduced by Trion. As it stands, I might have 30 of 45 minutes here and there to play which doesn’t lend itself toward participating in group content. Sitting at max level in Rift, all I’m really interested in is doing the instanced content. I’m over questing and instanced PVP doesn’t appeal to me enough for it to be a steady activity. I’d love to do the Rift raids. However, there’s no way to ensure one is taking place when I actually have time to play. The ability to match my wits against solo scripted instances is something I’ve wanted for YEARS.
Almost all of my free time is being spent on continuing to expand my handcrafted bag line. I remain amazed at how much it scratches the crafting itch I used to fulfill in MMOs. I’m working through a backlog of personal requests from friends, family and co-workers, while simultaneously designing standard styles for my shop. Very little blogging will be taking place here until GW2 comes along which is the MMO I’ve been waiting for since retiring from WOW. I may blog about SWOTR. I plan on playing it when I can with our guild. I’ve pre-ordered it to be sure I can be there at the start if I’m in town.
For the foreseeable future, most of my blogging activity will be about my real life crafting adventures which can be followed here.
