WoW on the Mind
I've been sick for the past week and haven't had much of a chance for gaming but I did get a chance to read a few books. One of them was The Shattering, which is all about the events in WoW leading up to the Cataclysm. It really got me excited to play the game again.
I think at this point it's inevitable that I'll resubscribe for at least a few months. I looked at my WoW account today and saw that I haven't played in about a year, but I don't feel like I've been missing out on anything.
I have a level 80 that's done almost every quest in Northrend and beaten Naxx a few times. I never got into hardcore raiding because I hated the time investment and I don't plan on picking it up ever. I always liked doing random 5-man dungeons, but I quit before they launched the dungeon finder. I do regret that.
I think I'll start back up in the next week or two, try out some of the newer Wrath content, enjoy some 5-mans, and get my main ready for Cataclysm. WoW sounds like fun to me at the moment, which is something I haven't been able to say in at least a year. I bet I'll be unsubscribed by February, but that's just a guess. As long as I'm having fun with the game it doesn't matter.
Anyway, Cataclysm hype and the lack of interesting MMOs have consorted to make me, once again, interested in WoW. Don't be surprised if you see some more posts on the subject.
