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?

After a long time I’m finally enjoying WoW again. I know that it is perfectly normal to get burned out at times when you play a game for 8 years. Luckily I’m part of a great community and have wonderful friends who knew how to get me out of my little dip in WoW.

EJ and Raven (my co-hosts on Girls Gone WoW) suggested I would just focus on one or two characters. I have to admit that it’s three chars now, but I’m feeling a lot better. I’ve decided to level my pandaren hunter, Draenai shaman and my panda monk. I alter them when I get a bit bored with one toon or when they run out of rested xp. It has made playing the game a lot more enjoyable.

I also don’t feel the push any more to do all the things. I’ll do my farm when I feel like it and the same goes for dailies. I still plan on seeing all the content, but I’m in no rush. Same goes for levelling all my toons. I want all my characters on both sides to reach 90 in the end. I guess levelling is just a thing that I do and I enjoy it if I don’t get overwhelmed for choices.

That leads me to my new pondering though. What do I level on the horde side? I don’t want to level 3 toons there at the same time. I want to focus on one toon and just play it and I’d rather not play the same class that I’m already playing on alliance side, so no shaman, monk or hunter for the moment.

There’s a few toons I’m oogling:

Greskaa; the Orc warrior who is running around in Howling Fjord

Zanija; the troll warlock who just arrived in Feralas

Katili; the bloodelf paladin who made her first steps in Pandaland

Tinkxi; the goblin priest who is healing her butt off in Outland

Aliskayla; the goblin mage who is ready for Pandaland

I think I might have to keep the warlock for our little GGW levelling project that I’m planning on doing with Raven and EJ and any other guildies that want to join us. I’m thinking of rp-levelling even through dungeons and zones if people would be interested in that.

So what class to level on horde side… *ponders*

Time for a new leveling project. I figured that leveling is the thing I love most in this game even if it does drive me bonkers at times.

I have 22 characters in total and only my Nightelf Druid is level 90. In the end I want all of them to be level 90, but for now I’m going to focus on a few of them.

On horde side that will be:

Zanija Troll Warlock 26

Talhua Pandaren Hunter 11

Chunlii Pandaren Rogue 12

On alliance side:

Nooraya Pandaren Hunter 86

Talua Pandaren Monk 27

Lunamay Pandaren Warrior 28

Once these girls are 90 I’m going to level another group of chars. So far I’m really digging my Troll Warlock and I think I’ll be mostly focussing on her. Though my Monk is a close second. So each week I’ll post a little update with how the ladies are doing levelling wise and a shiny screenshot while I’m strutting through Azeroth.

And now I leave you with a picture of my troll before I jump back and level cooking on all my characters >.<

The big change

The Shattering is upon us and it has changed the world (of Warcraft) literally. When I logged on this morning (yay for European realms being up quicker than expected) I was amazed by Ogrimmar. I had already seen it in the beta, but I didn’t want to spoil it for myself and I hardly played it. I started to explore and I love the vibe of this city. It’s so much more war-like.

It also feels as if I’m playing a brand new game. All my quests in Azeroth were wiped from my log. Time to start questing in altered places with new quests, but here is also the ‘big’ problem. I have no clue what to level.
I switched from alliance to horde a few months ago. I still love my alliance chars, but I guess being the same races over and over again for 5 years gets really boring. I picked up my old undead mage, dusted her bones off and started playing. I had a (fire)blast. I also found a pretty cool guild with lovely people in it. I feel like I’m part of something again.

Sure, I still feel the urge to jump back to my previous ally-servers and see if I haven’t made a mistake, but I should not do it. I should really focus on this new guild and really experience life on the horde side. But change is scary.
I have that even more now that I have the option to level a brand new char in a relative brand new world. Here comes the age old question: what class (or race) do I pick? I would love to get my mage to 80 but at 70 she’s stuck in Northrend and I really don’t want to hit that area with all the new/old world changes. Even if levelling there isn’t going to take ages like it used to. I think that for the next two weeks I will be playing my enhancement shaman and/or my feral druid. I blame reading ‘Rise of the Horde’ for my renewed love of Tauren and Orcs.
