Well this is it folks. The end of the line. It’s like I always say. “It’s been real, its been fun, but it aint’ been real fun.” The time has come for me to say goodbye. I am not really sure if I’ll be back here. Hence the please stand by pic above. Not much else to say. Peace!
Yet again I’ve managed to not post anything in quite awhile. Sorry about that. I wish I had some reasonable explanation but by now if you come here you should know I do not. I’ve been playing WoW quite a bit lately, helping my SL Sorority raise money for our president’s MS walk, and just goofing off.
One thing that I would like to mention is that well due to my lack of time and or overall interest in SL these days I’ve decided to close down my store. I know I made that little teaser post and at the time I had all these wonderful ideas. Just over the past few months my love/hate relationship with SL has begun to border more on hate than any type of love. If it wasn’t for the charity events and the wondeful women I’ve meet through my sorority I probably would uninstall SL all together. So that’s that.
..and eventually those words will form a complete full on thought. And maybe just maybe one day a novel or something and the words can stop haunting me.
The air was thick and sticky. You could feel its oppressive heat against your skin. It almost had a weight to it, like it was another being longing to be close to someone. The slight wind its voice seducing you into a false sense of coolness. And so she sat, staring out at the sky. Longing for answers she would never receive. Legs curled up, head resting on her knees, holding on for dear life as if she was drowning in a ranging sea. Eventually the sky would open up and the storm would come. She hoped when it did that it would wash her away.
Okay, let me start by saying my bad. I didn’t realize it had been so long since my last post. I put out that “teaser” image and pretty much went about my merry way. What happened with all of that is a story for another time. Tonight I have this story…a story about my beloved ‘lock going over to the dark side.
A very long time ago when I 1st started playing WoW I made a warlock who turned into a bank alt. I liked the class but didnt really understand the mechanics of it all. Along came Burning Cursade and I rolled another warlock and her name was Aly. Again I had no clue what I was doing. So I rolled a few other toons and went about my merry way. Then for some reason I dusted her out of altdom and started leveling her. Eventually she became my main. My 1st ever level 70. Once I got into playing Aly and being the best possible warlock I could be I became affliction. In the beginning I really had no clue what I was doing but once I got into it and boy did I get into it, afflicition was the only spec for me. There was no appeal in Destruction, I mean really if I wanted to fling fire around I would have become a mage. Demo was cool but honestly if I wanted a pet I’d just level my hunter. No Aly was affliction and she was gonna stay that way with her little mana battery imp by her side.
Then along came Warth of the Lich King. A shiney new class to play. I made Ilianah and Aly slowly become a distant memory. I’d log in and see her name but Ilianah my DK was so much fun to play. I mean she had plate. She had dieases. She had everything Aly had but better. Ilianah got to 70 and I figured I should level Aly now but no the call of death and decay was to strong. Ilianah hit 80 1st. Aly sat in Dalaran collecting dust. Still though she called to me. My faithful ‘lock.
As I try and gear up Ilianah for the end game I’ve decided to give Aly one more try. However in doing so I’ve done something I’ve never thought I would do. I respec’d. Not only did I respec but I respec’d out of affliction and into deep Demo. I….I….I got Aly a felguard. ‘weeps. I feel so dirty. What’s worse is I kinda like it. I know that once Aly reaches 80 and gets geared up for the end game I will respec back to afflicition. It’s just for now this seems like the best option for leveling. ‘sigh.
It all comes back to her. No matter how hard I try and fight it I am a warlock at heart. While my DK sits at 80 and I still have a whole lot of the game to see I am back at playing Aly. I feel rusty and all to out of it even though I haven’t played her in 2 months. My spell rotation is complicated and everyone keeps talking about Destro. I’m still trying to figure out a proper afflicition spec that works for my playstyle. Plus there is the fact that people keep claiming we are weak and not that great at DPS anymore. Which is probably true but I’m still attracted to being a clothie who can stand up to about anything. Will I be as strong at 80 as I was at 70? Only time will tell.
One thing is for certain, when I do hit 80 I need to figure some things out. For the most part I’ve solo’d the majority of content in WoW. I’ve done instance runs but that is usually with friends and those friends just don’t play that much anymore. It is partialy my fault. I do come and go far to much. Moving between SL and WoW isn’t easy and there are times I wish my SL friends would just give WoW a try. ‘sigh. I don’t want to be close to level 90 and leveling through whatever new content the next expansion brings before I see the inside of Naxx like I did with Kara. I don’t wanna keep saying one day I’ll see the cool shit. I know that raiding has its costs but there has to be some kind of balance. I mean the whole point of this expansion was to make content aviable to people like me, the forever casual. I guess only time will tell.
