Today is the day that The Elder Scrolls Online is going free to play, or like the Guildwars system of buying the game but there are no subscription fees. I am extremely happy about this. When I first played this game in the beta, I was not impressed. The starting area was boring and the story just didn’t do it for me at all. I wasn’t expecting to get this game, but when I was off work due to my depression and I got extremely bored, I took the step and bought the game. Not only that, I actually purchased the Collectors Edition. I know right, that’s taking a huge risk for a game that I was not interested in at all when I had played it.

The one thing that the CE had going for it was the wonderful art book. Elder Scrolls always has gorgeous art books with their CE’s and the statue that came with it was extremely cool. All in all it was a good purchase. Then it came to the game and let me tell you I was pleasantly surprised. The first area was the same, but then I moved to an Island where my dark elf happily roamed around (it’s the Kajit and woodelf starting area, due to having a CE I can start anywhere and i’m not race tied to starting area’s) and explored for some treasure and quests and I loved it!

Now there is some bad stuff too, I wasn’t impressed with some of my skills as a rogue. She felt quite under powered when I got repeatedly killed by boss mobs my level. I am hoping that that will change with this new patch. I already got the warning that my talents have been changed and all my skill points returned to me.

So keep your fingers crossed that rogues will be awesome again!

Finding your way in WoW again

We’ve all been there. You’ve been playing a game you love to death for several months, years, decade and all of a sudden you have no urge to log in anymore and when you do it’s only for a few seconds.

This is what happens to me on occasion with wow. I get periods that I just don’t find the game that interesting and will unsub for a while to try something else. The difference is that normally this happens in between xpansions. Warlords hasn’t even been out for 6 months and I already feel like it for the last weeks.

I tried focusing on a new char, my human warlock Zoellha and as much fun I had on here, warlock doesn’t ‘fit’ me. I tried going back to druids, but even they don’t seem to do it for me. Then I remembered my bloodelf hunter. I only leveled her to level 7 but I found her quite fun to play. So I figured I would test to see if I’d enjoy playing her.

In a day I got her to level 58…. then I pushed her to 60 and gave her my free WoD boost to 90. I am hoping that if I focus on her background story and do all the horde quests on her I will find some love for the game again. This has worked in the past and I already have written down a long background story for her, so I’m hoping to get the chance to roleplay more with her too.

Here’s hoping!

Did you ever try something ‘new’ in game to find the love again?

So The Secret World is now Free 2 play? Well, guess what I’m doing *smirks*

tswI always loved this game, but I wasn’t willing to pay for two subs. You can understand how happy I am that TSW is now free 2 play. I’ll be leveling my Templar character to see the storylines from that perspective. Happy Days now that all my current mmo’s have gone free to play (well except for wow)
