A Quick Update

Wow… so it’s been a few months now since I’ve posted, and I figure it’s time to jump back in. I don’t want to bore anyone with details, and I really just want to get this post out of the way so I can get on to some meatier stuff.

After my wife and I ran our guild for a while, we both got burnt out. Things weren’t quite working out the way we’d expected, and we weren’t progressing the way he’d hoped, so we got out of it. I will say that I’ve gained much respect for guild leaders who can lead well and not become miserable in the process. It’s a tricky balance, and something that I don’t think (at this point) I am capable of.

My wife has, as of Sunday, gone back to WoW. This seems to be the current trend as people are getting excited about the new expansion. She’s found a nice guild and is enjoying running the heroics and will begin raiding casually (two nights a week) in a few days. It will be interesting to see whether her interest holds for more than a month. I’ve simply run too many heroics (most probably 15+ times) to validate resubscribing with my account. I made a tauren warrior that I’ve been running around with a little. I figured I’d try a class I don’t know much about, but after playing two classes to 80, one to 70, two to 40, and two to 25 (seven of eight on the alliance side) I feel like it’s already getting stale.

In other news, I’ve been playing Dragonica Online now for a few months as the betas have been up, and while I think a lot of people will enjoy it, I couldn’t really find a class that clicked with me. Also, the grind, while apparently much better than the game’s Singapore counterpart, is still pretty steep and I found that to be rather dull. The graphics were actually rather good if you like the art style, so if you want to try a free side-scroller with fast-paced combat (it’s all about combos) you might enjoy this game. It’s currently in open beta.

I’m really excited about the upcoming release of Aion. I pre-ordered the game and got to play in the most recent closed beta event, which I really enjoyed. My biggest problem is that I can’t decide with class to play. The ones that I’ve really ruled out are templar, assassin, ranger, and spirit master. That leaves gladiator, chanter, cleric, and sorceror. That’s going to be a tough decision, which I’ll hopefully be able to figure out in open beta. Since I’ve got Monday off and don’t work Tuesday, I have three solid days to play, and I can’t wait!

That’s pretty much it for now. I’ve got at least one other post I’m going to knock out later today (if not two) and we’ll go from there. Now I just need to get people reading this thing again…


P.S. I dropped the domain I had before.  I might get it back in the future, but for now I don’t see much need to have it.
