I’m sort of in-between goals at the moment.
I got the mage to 80.
I faction changed the shaman, brought her to my horde server and got her a few upgrades plus a Black War bear.
We’ve cleared all the available regular raid instances, and the guild is now working on hard modes in the search for Algalon.
My shadow priest has her motorcycle, and finally got the Lil’ Game hunter achievement.
So now what?
Yes, I have the wee druid in the wings, but I’m meh about leveling at the moment and have to give concentrated questing a time out to avoid burn out. Unless I have other crazy levelers willing to go 3-man at level instances. THAT is something I can never pass up (and something I always wayyy underestimate how much time to allot for.)
I wonder why it is so hard to stop and smell the roses in WoW? Instead of just reveling in the moment, all too often I see folks in a similar mind set to where I am at right now saying “I’m bored.” And find myself restless without a new goal to pursue. In retrospect, isn’t it absurd for any of us to be bored with an MMO that has literally thousands of activities in which we could participate if only we motivated ourselves to think outside of our slef-defined box?
Luckily, those moments, for me, pass quickly. And soon enough I have a new list of things I want to do. And for the most part, what I want to do is piddle around with the folks in my guild whose company makes me happy, piddling around, doing whatever, biding my time until we get to pay a visit on the Lich King. I’m ready and waiting.
