This is something that is rather weird for me when it comes to WoW. I have always been an avid instance runner. I love tanking and healing. I just enjoy the dynamic of running with a group.
However, the longer I stay away from instances, I find that I build a higher anxiety towards grouping up. This obviously doesnt apply to playing with friends.....none of which are really even playing at this time. This goes mostly for those good ole pugs.
I dont know what it is. I havent run them in a while an have likely forgotten some of the mechanics in the instances. Not to mention that most of the pugs seemed to have been filled with assholes at the beginning of Cataclysm.
Perhaps I am being weird....it certainly feels weird. I may decide...Hey, I think im gonna run an instance! Then after I queue, I decide I dont wont to afterall.
I refuse to join as a tank or healer. My two favorite roles. Because I dont want the responsibility of guiding a bunch of people I dont know through some content I dont really care about.
I want to want to play. I can bring myself to make gold. Thats about it. Maybe I should run some old content and pick up some achievements. It would be quite east to run alot of the old stuff and probably net me a bit of extra crap to sell.
I keep meaning to run Karazhan on my Warlock to get the BC enchants. I should go ahead and get my rep up on Darraxus with those old factions that have been waiting.
Maybe that is what my next aim in the game will be. Just to run around and enjoy the things I used to enjoy in a solo setting.
I think much of this has to do with the lack of friends playing this game. It seems that everyone has been trying out LOTRO (including me).
I enjoy LOTRO, but I doubt it is a long term investment. WoW seems to have a lot more to offer, and I think WoW also looks much better.
What do you do when you need a change of pace within WoW. I enjoy making gold....so I guess it is time to find some other creative ways to do it. Soloing Karazhan maybe? Molten Core? Other old world content?
What do you guys think?
No ETA on Old Republic Online.
Oh, and I think I will be hitting 1 million gold within the next two weeks. Gold is flowing easily in. Next will be two million. I dont really have anything to spend it on with my wife not currently playing.
