A few days ago I re-subbed to WoW, along with grabbing another account for my girlfriend. We created two Draenei characters, a Shaman (me) and a Mage (her), and starting our trek towards 70, with the goal of hitting one instance each week with some of my former guildmates. They also created new characters, most having to re-sub as well.
Its funny how quickly old memories flood you when you start up WoW again. The music around the portal login screen, the ‘ding’ sound, the interface, everything just hits you all at once. Going back to something I dedicated such a large portion of my life to is certainly an interesting experience. Even being back in a chat channel and seeing familiar character names is nice.
Of course, things are very different this time around. Most of us can no longer afford to do crazy stuff like:
- Take a day off from work
- Pull an all-nighter farming dreamfoil
- Being absolutely smashed on Vent, on a Tuesday, around 6pm.
- Using your last $15 to sub to WoW instead of buying food
- And… well basically anything Nieco has ever done related to WoW. (yes, inside Guild joke)
But so far, we are all just having a good time, playing a game together as a group once again. This time at a far less serious pace, playing more for the people than the game.
