I had been wandering round Proudmoore tagless since I got there. I thought I would try to keep myself occupied, and grabbed some pug TOC ‘s & ICC and lets just say it was never really productive, ( Wiping on Lootship, stoned Raid Leaders, killing Beasts with 7 /25 people alive, and I came close to leaving again.
After doing some QueueQ premades and general perusing of their forums, as pretty much the only thing I was enjoying was pvp, I noticed that they were getting reasonable interest in having some server based guilds.
So I asked what I needed to do to App, and was told to sing in Undercity, and provide evidence ( which was a joke) but there was no real app process, and I got an invite. So my main is guilded again. A Pvp based guild sounds like fun, and so far certainly looks to be enough people involved to be a working, and purposeful guild, and that will be important in Cata.
Most of my alts are still on Blackrock, which seems to be having a bit of an exodus for Alliance players at the moment, it was already Horde heavy, and it looks to be heading even more so. This will affect the quality of players available for progression, and pug quality will degrade further, and Blackrock pugs were mostly pretty good. My 2nd priest is back in my 1st priests old guild. Yes I missed some of my guildies. Their raiding schedule has changed so I’m not back as a raider but maybe for retro raids and the like, and I guess depends on what they do for Cata. The rest of my Alts are wandering round under my Guild Bank tag.
I still think my self-imposed exile was a good thing, if not starting off a little lonely knowing no one on server, but there comes a point where you know you need to stop, and while I didn’t think that leaving the game all together was necessary, I needed a drastic change for a few reasons.
