Woot – I’m the intro on the Twisted Nether Blogcast Ep 82 - am I allowed to boast about 11 secs or so of air time?
All my gear sets have been saved with my Guild Tabard – so now I am not in a guild on my main – I have this Ugly Grey Tabard which is especially apparent if I am not in Shadow.
Why does it have to be grey?
Why not white, blank, full of promise and hope. New beginnings, a fresh slate ?
It is grey, a colour often seen as a colour of shame in fiction. Eg The Feist’s and Wurt’s Daughter of the Empire trilogy - where Grey Warriors are shamed and masterless Ronins of “fallen houses”
While there is always that romantic notion of being Ronin, the only people who wear a grey tabard are usually those who just Gquit, and it’s the first thing often done after a Gquit. The dramatic tearing off of the Tabard.
It’s a bit odd that I was still wearing it, but if I do leave it on, I could give the impression that I am a fresh Gquit, and haven’t been guildless for however long I end up being guildless for.
I’ve not app’d anywhere. Not even read who’s recruiting on forums. I’m in a better place to see content just from the pugs that run, and especially since one of them last night was asking for 11/12 to participate in a 8/12 ICC run, while there are still 4/12 Pugs being run towards the end of the raiding week, it looks like the Pug standards – and success rates will have me seeing the Lich before Cataclysm.
The reality is – when guild chat can degrade to the quality of a General in ICC, and General chat in General – you don’t miss it specifically, but company is always good. This is a MMO after all. So I can’t see me being content with being guildless for too much longer again.
