I have a problem.

February 26, 2009

I think I am having an identity crisis.


Everyone has always known me as ‘the pvp druid.’ And that’s what I considered myself.


PvP was what I did and what I wanted to be doing. I did arena whenever I could, and when that wasn’t an option I did BG’s.


Now that is not the case.


Lately I’ve wanted progression. I do Naxx almost every week with my guild and now I want more. I never thought of myself as a raider. Actually I pretty much despised it, but as of now I seem to want more.


Ever since Wrath, arena hasn’t been the same. I mean, we are doing decent… staying around 1600 but there doesn’t seem to be a goal I can work towards. It seems like more of something that I have to be lucky with, like my improvement won’t really benefit us. I know this is not the case and if I worked hard enough I would get better, but it doesn’t feel that way.  The point system is strange and I find it really difficult getting used to the new class. I just don’t feel the love for arena like I used to.


Naxx 10 was when I first found out how much I like to raid. It was something that I was dreading doing, but I really wanted to see what it was like. That day was the first day of raiding, but not the last. I found the boss fights thrilling, the excitement building up inside of me. I wanted to kill the bosses and move on to the next.


I really enjoyed it. 


Today, I am confused. I wasn’t aware of how much I would like to raid and how much time it takes up. I still do arena on occasion, but it’s not the same.


Am I a raider now?

I have come to a conclusion.

Wednesday is my favourite day of the week.

Well as most of you probably figured out, Wednesday is two days before the weekend, meaning it is 2 days after the other weekend, meaning I survived another half week of school!

Wednesday is also the day that I clean my room. Well clean as in move stuff so it looks different, maybe tidy-er is a better way of putting it. Anyway, after I clean/tidy/move stuff I feel a lot better.

Wednesdays is a day when there is nothing on the guild calendar so what I do in game can vary. I like this a lot, something different every Wednesday, makes this day more interesting.

Wednesday is a great day to have a snow day. It is the day after Tuesday, when the server does its little restart thing, meaning I can do all the raids I want, saved to nothing and it is extremely easy to find a group. (Note: Snow days are good any day though!)

Wednesdays are the days when every teacher says “You made it until Hump Day” with their tired dragged out voices. They are tired and hoping for the week to end just like the rest of us, therefore they are easy on the workload (usually).

But unfortunately, Wednesdays are also days I have to go to school so, I’m out.



Three Months Is A Long Time!

February 16, 2009

Well three months is a long time I know… but I want to get back into it and I suppose today is just as good as any to start!

As most of you know arena has been a little weird with WOTLK. The point system is strange and so are the classes. Maybe it is something that I have to get used to, the fact that ret pallies are owning still seems to boggle my mind though. I guess eventually I will get used to kiting a Deathknight and I will learn how to deal with the new team make-ups that I still seem to lose to a lot. Soon enough I will get there.

I also started to do arena with a new partner. Well not really a new partner, a new character. As a lot of you know before WOTLK I was with a Lock named Nya but now, he has been playing his Deathknight more regularly, so we thought we’d try it out. It took a lot of getting used to but it seems to be working out okay.

For a while we were playing around the 1500 level. I mean, I guess that is a fair rating… not really winning but not losing either I suppose. Lately we have started to do a little bit better though. The rating went as high as 1650, I know that we did do much better than that before the Ex Pac but I feel like I worked hard for it so, I’m kinda proud.

Arena seems to be different everyday, but hopefully it will become easier as we start to get better.

Until next time,
