Why do my post titles tend to remind me of songs that stick in my head forever?
My brain is still a little fuzzy after all that happened last week, so please forgive my lack of coherency. I made a big change — I left my guild.
It struck me as odd that leaving a guild felt a lot like breaking up with someone. “It’s not you, it’s me” and “let’s just be friends” and other cliche lines filled my head as I struggled to explain my reasons. It even felt like my heart was breaking a little as I typed /gquit.
It was a tough decision to make, but I knew it had to be done if I was to continue to really enjoy the game. I missed the little bit of raiding we used to do — it was like a gnawing ache at the back of my mind, and finally it was too much to ignore. I need that occasional challenge to look forward to, something to strive for. I also really missed my friends, and former guildies who left a few months back and created another social guild called Parallel. Last Thursday I finally made the leap.
It was definitely an exciting week. I ventured into Trial of the Crusader for the first time, and we made our way through Northrend Beasts and Lord Jarraxus before getting stumped on Faction Champions (I fail at PVP).
I also finally got a Malygos kill and received that long awaited title “Champion of the Frozen Wastes”.
I don’t actually know why everyone hates that fight – I love the uniqueness of it. Flying around on little discs as a melee is excellent. The dragon vehicle phase is tough, and a little tedious, but if you have one person who knows what they’re doing you can follow them and all is good (thanks Push!).
After Malygos we wound up killing another dragon, and she even decided to drop a sweet looking rogue hat for me.
I also did a lot of chain heroics on my shaman, trying to gear up both my resto and elemental sets. The sheer amount of emblems needed is a bit overwhelming. The gear is so similar, and yet different (I’m struggling with the hit cap).
My alt projects were on hold as Jardal wasn’t really interested in playing WOW — he finished up playing Assassin’s Creed 2 and then plunged headlong into Mass Effect 2.
So there you have my week in review. Too many thoughts have been spinning around my head, but I couldn’t really nail down the words. I think I’m starting to find my center again.
Random note – if you had removed Need More Rage from your feed reader, you might want to add it back. Ratshag has returned!
