I miss broadband and I miss the World of Warcraft. My month trial pass into Azeroth expired the day before I flew home so I figured, why waste a month when I can't play? Jonnie (aka Shandor) had spent a good hour shepherding me through unfamiliar and dangerous territory, saving me from all manner of beasties, until we arrived in Darnassus where all my pal Keri (Coppergirl) seems to be permenantly based. On the upside, I got to see more of the world and also got to travel on shps and even fly on a gryphon and a hippogriff!
The problem is, I've been without WoW for nearly a month and it's getting to me. Everyone is playing and I'm still level 5, I need to be a 20 before I can even think about questing with them. Looks like I'm going to have to kill a lot more wolves. Fortunately, now I'm around I can battle with Keri and nick half her XP - this pleases me. I prefer gaming with friends and Skype makes the experience that much more fun so I can chat while we're slaughtering. Unlike many folks who seem to spend every hour questing I'm determined to set boundaries - WoW is for after 8pm, which means I'm going to lose a lot of sleep over the next month but it will be worth it if I can be a productive member of the Gigaknights Guild.
