It’s the end of an era.
I have canceled my World of Warcraft account.
I just can’t stay awake for raids anymore. Pregnancy is tiring. Also, the PVP class balance is still off, and without resilience gear at level 80, you’re just bursting each other down. I’m all for smack downs, but where’s the skill in that? You don’t even have time to turn people into sheep. (Or, since the patch, into penguins or pigs.)
It’s a great game, a nice cost-saver (when you’re flying around a virtual world grinding reputation for a shiny new enchant, you don’t spend much on real life entertainment), and a great diet plan (hard to eat pizza when your hands are busy strafing and shooting frostfire bolts), and I’ll probably be back. But for now, I’m enjoying having my evenings to myself.
All this free time has led to new hobbies. Jon has purchased a Nikon D40 (I’m sure he’ll be talking all about it on his blog) soon. I’ve started learning a programming language that will facilitate my world takeover. I’m waiting until I come across a script with a command that creates minions. I swear it’s out there, I just have to find it. But anyway, more on my new hobby later.
