That's it, I quit! Not really, but my WoW subscription is up and I decided that a break from the game was long overdue. It's well enough that patch 3.2 is right around the corner because it brings a lot of new and exciting things to the game and it will be refreshing to return when it hits the live servers.
Every once in a while, things start to get stale in World of Warcraft. That's another reason why I renew my subscription on a month-to-month basis. Now, I've reached that point again. After running my third character through Zul'Drak, my second one through Storm Peaks and Icecrown, after the same repetitive Argent Tournament dailies, cooking dailies and Dalaran/Shattrath fishing dailies, WoW has started to turn a little moldy around the edges.
To end it off on a different note, I spent this last day running my Hunter through some old Classic content. One of the deeds I completed on my own was the quest Order Must Be Restored, which is the culmination of a chain and requires you to slay Nathanos Blightcaller. In WoW Classic, this used to be (in fact still is) a raid quest. I remember the difficulty we had back then even with a whole raid group when I was playing my first character, a Paladin. Today, at 80, a Hunter can kick this dude's (and his dogs) butt to kingdom come.
After a thoroughly satisfying way in which I spent the last day of WoW, I now say farewell to the game for a little while. I am not saying goodbye to my blog though so please stick around dear readers. I have so many articles lined up and new ideas in my head that I could keep on writing, without playing, until the next expansion.
Now I'm off to engage in other hobbies as well. Ah, so many hobbies, so little time!
