Yes, I am back. Christmas was good. I did alright without internet, until the Mr. T Night Elf Mohawk commercial came on TV. Then my brother tried to bait me into getting mad at him, saying people that play WoW are retards and have pale pasty skin from never leaving the basement. You’d think he’d be more mature than that at 30+ but oh well.
Not much to say about what I’ve done in game because obviously, I haven’t been. So how about a look back to where I was a year ago? It’s the thing to do at the end of the year, right?
12-31-2008 … Junahu becomes my first level 80. She would eventually be followed by two DKs and two mages (Arelin, Rozjin, Karius and Kalyon) and be replaced as my main by the mages. I can’t see her ever being a nelf or dwarf, but maybe, just maybe, when Cat comes out and humans can be hunters …. I certainly do miss her sometimes.
I had a lot of fun on her. Fiak had found another hunter and two DKs that we hooked up with and leveled the last couple levels to 80 with, and were our regular little 5 man group. We all geared up together and raided Naxx and OS together. It was good times. But .. eventually an issue with loot arose and they left us.
So, I talked Fiak into transferring to Dawnbringer to play with the dudes at For The Horde. We had fun for awhile, but real life interrupted several people’s play time and there just weren’t enough people in the guild to get raiding off the ground. That meant we had lots of time to goof … so I made a DK on Winterhoof to visit Troutwort.
You don’t have to look back very far in the posts to see where that went. I think it was sometime in September when I went Alliance full time, because it was the beginning of October when Karius dinged and cleared Naxx with the guild’s first raid. I’m having more fun than ever, have lots of friends to play with, have beaten almost all of the content (other than Yogg and Malygos), and best of all, my best friend Fiak is there with me doing it all, too.
It was a great year for me in WoW. I didn’t even mention this blog, which came around in February. I’m not sure the next year has any chance of equalling it, in terms of how far I’ve come and the new things I’ve tried. If you’d told me a year ago that I would be playing an Alliance mage and raiding the newest content, I’d have laughed in your face.
