It feels like I’ve written this post before. Yet again I’m a bit burned out. A mix of raiding for fun, to help others, running the daily heroic twice a day, RL getting busier and other stuff has lead me to have another raiding break and play a lot less than usual. Again. I’m wondering when I’m going to learn. You may ask yourself why I do this over and over and it’s a mix of several things.
When I do something I enjoy I want to do it well, nothing half way. Either I do the very best I can, or I don’t bother at all. It’s no wonder I end up burned out when I raid with this mindset up to six days a week. The same goes for the daily heroic. I loathe it, it’s one of the dullest things to do in the game, but I still do it because I know that it’s about a third or more of the frost badges I will get in a week. The third reason is actually guilt, it may sound odd to feel guilty about a game, but when nine other people rely on you and no one else to get to raid it’s very hard to say no. Being a healer and the only one with a resto druid as a main doesn’t exactly help either.
As usual I’ve turned to less demanding aspects of the game. Things I can do when I want, for how long I want and not for gearing up reasons. Alrokha, my tauren warrior is now a human warrior named Varði (inspired by old Norse languages)who is still bashing in Vrykul heads in Howling Fjord, Misfacios (now undead, previously known as Eruantiel the belf and Adustum the gnome) finally got the Talbuk he’s been dreaming about and tabard that matches his PvP-outfit and just faffed about in guild and joined silly and fun stuff, rather than srz bznz. Knowing my self I’ll probably be back raiding in not too long, but I’ll hopefully have learned a lesson.
In other news, the blog will be getting a second writer/blogger/ranter. Some of you know who this is, some of you can probably guess and some don’t know him at all. Either way he’ll be making his first post sometime this week. Hopefully it will add another dimension to the blog and I’ll have someone to kick me in the back side when I’m slacking.
This was more of a update-post rather than a topic one, but I promise to come back stronger after RL settles by the end of this week.
