We take a break from the multiple Skyrim posts to bring back a wow related post. I haven’t logged into WoW in a while but Cinder‘s most recent post has made me start thinking about it.
Basically Cinder has decided she doesn’t like PvP realms and she’d like to be alliance again and she’d like to be in a mythic raiding guild again and will be moving on from Deadline, our guild and Barthilas server. I’ve known Cinder a really long time raiding with her in 3 guilds across 2 factions over 2 different realms and consider her one of my longest and closest wow friends. And I have to agree that I cannot stand PvP realms and while I don’t mind horde that much, I don’t mind alliance either. I don’t want to mythic raid though, in fact somedays I question if I even want to raid or play come Legion.
For me, raiding comes as a double-edged sword, it’s something I used to love doing but it’s also something that I used to do to the extent of neglecting my real life. Obviously not everyone takes wow playing to that extreme but I did and quite frankly I’m a little scared to log back in because while WoW holds some good friends and amazing memories it holds some really dark ones too. So in light of Cinder’s post and sign off to the guild we both love I’m actually wondering if a change is what I need to be able to play the game again. Or maybe that’s a bridge you can’t cross twice.
