Decisions Decisions

It's time again!

The expansion has come and gone,

My old guild are into the end game content,

My toon is loaded with epics at the -old- level cap...

And, just like last time, I'm thinking about playing some more WoW!

It has been about 7 months since I succumbed to the pre-expansion blues and threw in the towel, and I while I miss raiding, and I miss wtfpwning people in AV, I'm not sure that I miss the grind, the committment and the errr... grind.

It's encouraging to hear that you have only replaced a few of your epix Gnomey! I raided long and ground hard for a lot of my fancy dresses and wizard hats, not to mention the ultimate staff of eternal demonic smackdown (or equivalent) that I looted from the great Illya Hardkore Dragonspine (or equivalent). It will be nice to get some use out of them yet... maybe even dominate a few level 70 battlegrounds or something...

If it's anything like my last return to WoW, there will be lots of fun to be had, noobs to slay, monsters to vanquish, and chicks to impress.

Maybe not so much impress.... and maybe not so much chicks.... anyway

New spells to learn (and never use?) like polymorph and mirror image which sounds like it had potential until the implementation of it was bolloxed up to the nth degree...

I am, however, a bit worried about this AOE everything all the time in all situations stategy that I'm hearing about.

Keep in mind in my day a good excuse to use AOE was something to look forward to. It was a chance to show off the uberness of the mage. It was a chance to kill everything on the screen in a blinding flurry of pixels and particle effects. It was cool damnit.

Except for when it got repetitive.... and monotonous.... and boring. Like almost every fight in Mount Hyjal. Fun, but not fun enough to be the only way to play.

So what am I gonna do?

a) start playing Zupa again and rejoin Vision. Level up, start raiding, probably annoy my girlfriend in doing so.

b) start playing Zupa again and server transfer. This is unlikely as most of my friends these days play alliance, so I couldnt really transfer to play with anyone anyway.

c) turn Zupa into a farmer and roll a DK on Frostmourne (my home realm)

d) bench Zupa and roll an ALLIANCE (OMG!) DeathKnight on which ever server sounds like the most fun.

...The poll results seem to be saying I should be playing WotLK, and playing on my mage...

but what about playing with RL buddies and what about these newfangled death knights in all their overpowered glory?

Surely the nerf bat is heading their way soon!

One thing I do know for sure, is that I miss the blogging, and I miss the bloggers. It's nice to check in on all the blogs I used to read daily and see what my old blogger buddies have been up to.

I <3 you guys!

Follow your heart, my friend. Of course I'd miss you as a fellow mage blogger. You've got much more clue about the theorycrafting than I have and I was hoping you'd come back and giving me hints and ideas (although for the wrong spec... :))

But if you want to play with your buddies and roll an alliance DK, go for it. I'll stay tuned to your blog anyway.

I'm really glad you're back from the dead! I'm happy to once again put you on my blogroll.
