So its already May and the year is passing by in a flash. If you had asked me this time last year what I would be doing in WoW I would have answered without a moments hesitation that I would be raiding. Perhaps not 4 nights a week but definitely 2-3… boy was I wrong! So my subscription has been for the most part wasted in 2011 but I finally convinced Cass to start playing with me again and we have started a bit of a Sunday night ritual. After my Sapling goes down to sleep, and we’ve eaten dinner, we hop on WoW and play together from 8pm – 10pm.
I would like to introduced our new littlies:
During our 2 hours playtime our little paladins are questing and gathering (I’m mining and Cass is skinning so there is no squabbling over resources!) around the old world checking out how different some of the quests are and how some things just haven’t changed at all. While we haven’t done any dungeons Cass is planning on tanking with her paladin and I will most likely be healing considering Avenai is wearing cloth BOA gear in order to get the extra xp (no, I sadly do not have any justice points available to buy new BOA chest or shoulders!).
So far we’ve completed Westfall, part of Redridge and part of Duskwood. Sadly because the XP gains are so fast when you add up BOA helms, cloaks, shoulders, chest plus the guild bonuses and rested bonus, we keeping running into grey quests before we get a chance to finish things off!
I think we’ve decided to head over to Stranglethorn Vale next to see if the area, now altered, can redeem itself (anyone who has leveled in STV on a PVP server will understand this sentiment!). I would be interested to know from readers who have gone through all the revamped zones, which ones are really worth completing as we’d hate to miss some really epic quest chains!
While we are running around questing we get on vent to chat and generally some guildy will join our channel and give us the gossip on whats happening in the guild. It seems like Cass and I aren’t the only guildies who have had changes to their game play. Vitare has gone through a complete revamp. All the officers I played with previously have moved on for one reason or another and a completely new set of players are now running the show. One of these I’m proud to say is a recruit I found from Twitter! Goodiemania (also known as @Velidra on Twitter or for his blog) has been suckered into officership hahaha you have my condolences. I’m trying very hard to get him to do a guest post on here based on the experience of going from raider to officer – its a big change for anyone and think its a great topic for discussion!
Its good to see though that the guild is still going strong and while I don’t feel I really know anyone in game anymore I still have Goodie to keep me apprised!
Aside from my 2 hours of WoW time a week I am (obviously) spending heaps of time with my baby daughter who is growing up so fast! While I’m itching to link pictures galore on here I’m refraining, but will instead direct you to a baby blog that I am sporadically updating for any readers interested in how that’s going. Feel free to check it out: My Little Sapling, I promise there are heaps of cute pictures and more squee will be added with time!
