A friend has been telling me about the WoW expansion. More five-mans, same dungeon can be made harder for the same five-man for more gear, lowering raid groups, flying mounts, neutral towns, oh my. My main complaint was the five-mans, and i thought the expansion would add a few but soon become useless like the rest, but with that not so, i want to play again. CoH just doesn't hold my interest.
Well, here's the problem. We had four people playing. A, B, C, and D. A and B are brothers, C is me, and D is a friend. D stopped playing, he's gone. A and B stopped playing, so B gave A's and B's account to a guildy, who gave the accounts to her son and daughter. B then went back and started using C's account. Now C (me) wants to play again, so i have to get a new account. Followed that?
I don't want to start on the same server, because it's just hurts too much added on top of re-getting to sixty. And i need to find a guild that plays like i do, so i'd probably keep away from the old guild, nice as they are. Another friend, E, started playing on a different server (Aerie Peak), so i joined his. That is, i logged on to the website as C and sent myself (now F) a ten-day pass and got a character up to level 4 last night. I'm not sure i want to stay on that server (not that i want to leave, just no real reason to stay other than playing with someone i know, who probably has a different style than me).
I want three main characters: Mage, Priest, Warlock. I'd like to have a Druid to play with too, but maybe not. I always play Mage. Priest, because i want to heal. And Warlock, because i want a pet and summon. Warlock actually calls to me, but its so evil, so i went with Mage. Druid's different forms are something i'd like to play with.
I'm debating about having two accounts so i can make gold quickly. Inter-faction trading was garnering a few hundred gold a week for me, and i'd like to get back to that. Maybe i'll even stop being lazy and write a mod to help check the prices. Doubtful though, unfortunately.
Yes, i am sad that i am going back. I haven't yet stepped over the cliff, but i really did like WoW, just not the raid-orientation of the game.
