Hi there! Remember me? No I’m not dead, gone, or any other theory. I’m also ok, though I appreciate the number of e-mails and such that I received inquiring about me and my well being. Truth is, I’ve spent the past six weeks or so since I posted just living the day to day life. Whether being a dad, working, or doing things around the house…you name it. It was just one of those lengthy periods where I wasn’t logged on to the game and when you’re not…it’s hard to write about it.
Sure, I could talk about the flow of WoD information that continues to come out in light of Blizzard flipping the Beta switch recently. Honestly, there are enough sources out there and enough people doing it that the subject is well covered. Personally, I’m not sure on how I feel about various things that I’ve learned and I’m taking a “wait and see” approach to things (Garrisons, I’m looking at you) rather than share my thoughts right now. Though I will say the mount flavour text is hilarious.
I continue to dabble in Hearthstone, but even that’s been on the back burner during these few weeks -just less so than WoW because my son actually asks me to fire it up on occasion so that he can watch. Plus, it seems easier to play a quick game versus trying to accomplish anything with certain characters in Azeroth. I’m not complaining, just observing. The things I want to do require sitting down and focusing to some degree. Except for my Baradin Hold rep. Had I kept at the dailies instead of a complete hiatus, I’d have that Drake by now. C’est la vie.
This isn’t to say I’m back in the swing of things either. It’s summer time so my schedule drastically changes for July and August so going to the computer is even less appealing. Though there are some holidays in there where I might be able to dabble a bit more thoroughly. Instead, I suspect it will be when school starts that I can spend some time truly immersed in the game once more. That it’s already been four years and the boy is even going to school to begin with is an adjustment in itself.
One final note, I would just like to once again congratulate Cymre for making it into Warlords of Draenor as an NPC. I was incredibly excited for her when I heard the news. If you happened to miss it, here’s her post on the details. Many of us have always asked the question of what we’d want if we were to be in World of Warcraft and she’s the latest to have that wish come true!
