I kinda wonder if any guild will feel like home again without all of my longtime (and retired from WoW) in game friends.
But I'm not ready to give up yet. Yesterday, I got an invite to a new guild. One that I am very hopeful will become my new home for Warlords. Only time will tell, but I am determined to find a new home and do some real raiding in Warlords. I just miss it too much.
The WoD beta has come and almost gone.
Have I gotten the things I set out to do in the beta done? Yes and no.
If you remember from my last post, I set out to do two main things in the beta (other than finding and reporting bugs and whatnot).
- To determine if leveling in a protection spec is realistically doable.
- To experience all of the new 5-man goodness.
- Use CC on trash (and don't let a DPSer call you a noob for doing it)
- Take you time, and make sure not to pull more than one pack at a time
- Watch out for patrolling mobs becoming adds (this has wiped me more than anything else in Warlords so far).

As I stated in my last blog post, I got my invitation to the Warlords beta today. I kicked off the install before I left for work hoping that it would be ready for me to login as soon as I got home.
Now, as you might expect, I have gotten pretty much nothing done at work today. I am a sad little man, what can I say?
So I have decided that I need to make a to-do list for my voyage back through the dark portal.
One, as is always the case with a new expansion, I will spend a little time just looking around and marveling at all the new stuff (environments, models, textures, etc . . .).
Two, I will start playing.
Now I have two things right now that I want to check out. Blizz has told us that tanks will be able to quest in tank spec with tank gear. I am really excited about this prospect, and want to get going to see how true that is. Second, I can't wait to get my grubby little hands on new 5-man content. New dungeons make me giddy.
For everyone else out there who got an invite, I'll see you on Draenor.
There are many reasons for that, but mostly it is because I have pretty much taken Mists off.
Don't get me wrong, I have kept my subscription going, and have faithfully logged in at least once a week for this entire expansion, but I haven't really DONE anything. I have been so, super casual, that I don't even consider myself as having really experienced the expansion. The only raiding I have done in Mists is LFR, and for anyone who knows, that is not "real" raiding. I know that sounds elitist, but that is not how I mean it at all. I just mean that LFR requires very little communication or team work. Those two things are essential to raiding.
Successful raiding anyway.
Well, this morning I woke up to a pleasant surprise.

It has been a long time since I posted anything here.
MoP has been a really good expansion, but without all of my friends and guildmates, I just haven't had the motivation to play more than once or twice a week. I have left Empyreal Fray, and joined a longtime established guild on Eitrigg, We Know. I have not raided with them yet, and as a matter of fact, haven't done any raiding at all beyond LFR. That kinda makes me feel dirty (shudder).
That changes today.

Been a while since I posted anything here. Probably because my guild and myself just sort of fell off the face of the earth for a few months waiting for MoP to drop. We all found lives in other games, as well as out in the real world. But now, I am back!
What do I think of Panda Land so far? It is awesome! The land is beautiful. The natives are not as goofy as some people predicted. The land feels like a living breathing world where people really live.
Another thing. Blizzard are at the top of their game with the quests. The questing experience is the most fun that I can remember. I especially liked the "80's martial arts movie training montage" that goes along with one questline. Just for a minute, it was as if my dwarf was Jean-Claude Van Damme in Bloodsport. Such fun.
The Pandaren starting area is also fantastic! I think Blizz got it just right. Best starting area in the history of the game.
