Fare Thee Wow…err Well

Saying goodbye to an MMO is never easy. Even when you think it is easy and you think “man I’m so done with this game!” often we find ourselves unable to resist returning later if not sooner. And so not for the first time I find myself ready to say goodbye to WoW. I’ve left the game a couple of times already only to return and jump back into it as fully as I had to start with.

I’ve gone through quite a lot of “phases” during my time with WoW. In Vanilla WoW I started off playing a human warlock primarily participating in the endgame raiding activities of the day. I took her through all of Molten Core and Blackwing Lair. It didn’t last however and my friends and I found ourselves rerolling horde, and this time around I jumped into the PvP scene. I joined a PvP guild with my druid and had great fun running battlegrounds with that guild. It was quite exhilarating to be the guild’s primary flag runner for Warsong Gulch!

Once the Burning Crusade released I decided I wanted to get back into endgame raiding, but not with my druid…it was time to reroll once more! This time however I stayed on the same server and started working on a blood elf paladin. I hit level 70 and joined an amazing guild that was just getting started. We made our way through Karazhan, then Gruul’s Lair, and before we new it we were catching up to the major guild’s on the server! Unfortunately while working on Magtheridon the guild went through a small meltdown…Our guild leader decided he couldn’t deal with the stress of leading a guild any longer and disbanded us while we were in progress of a Gruul kill! A few of us started trying to pull the guild back together but inevitably some people left. Several went to some of the guilds that were further along than we were, and some just quit or transferred. Fortunately for us we were able to hold on to most of the core members of the guild minus it’s former leadership.

Introducing The Game Dungeon!

I just wanted to make an introductory post to talk a bit about my past mmo experiences and what I want to do with this blog.

I started my journey into the world of MMORPGs with the original EQ. I’m sad to say that I didn’t get to experience the game in it’s prime nor any of the end game content that it had to offer. I started playing it pretty late and made it to about level 55 before SOE released EQ II. With the release of EQ II I decided I was probably too far behind in the original EQ to catch up and made the transition to it’s successor.

While EQ II is technically my second in mmo in a lot of ways I think of it as my first. It was the first one I hit the level cap in, and the first one in which I experienced endgame content. It was a very enjoyable game and sometimes I wish my friends had stuck with it, but they moved to WoW and I followed.
