It took forever, but I finally reached level 85 in World of Warcraft. There are two main reasons it took me so long; the biggest of course, is just a general lack of playing time due to the demands of being a father of a four year old and a six month old. Those dang kids are so dependent! I’ve mentioned the second reason a few times lately, and that’s just a dwindling desire to play WoW. I’m ready to move on to other games. Or so I thought. While I pretty much hated the first two Cataclysm zones I did (Vashj’ir followed by Deepholm), I really enjoyed Uldum and have enjoyed the first few quests in Twilight Highlands. I may just stick around and finish off the Twilight Highlands quest achievement. I’d also like to quickly run through the Goblin and Worgen starting areas, just to check them out.
I’ve still got a level 80 Shaman, who I suspect will remain at 80 for some time to come. I have no desire to play him at this time and don’t see that changing. My Warrior, currently 61 is the other character I’d consider leveling to 85, but honestly, I can’t see that happening any time soon. I’ll keep my WoW subscription active for a bit, but it’s time to tackle my ever-growing pile of games and live outside the MMO space for a bit.
In other news, I was bored the other day, so what else should I do with my time besides hauling my huge PC upstairs to hook it up to our LCD TV. It looked great, and I’m now wondering if my wife would notice if I brought the TV down to my comptuer room and plopped it on my desk.
