Only a week into 2018…



It’s been about a week since the start of 2018 and I think I’ll be sleeping out the rest of this World of Warcraft expansion.

It pretty much dawned on me when I did a preliminary calculation of my Hordeside Order Halls. The total came to about 59,000 gold. Now that’s nothing to sneeze at for one week of essentially logging onto my Legion app. But prior to this, I was putting up much bigger numbers. I did that by logging in twice a day, every day. But lately I’m only logging in once, almost every day.

We’re just talking about the app here. An icon on my damn phone, that I carry around with me all the time. That’s not even logging into the actual game, which I have rarely done for more than a couple minutes a week to refill my Order Hall resources.

I’m not even keeping up with WoW happenings. I’ve seen Youtube videos (isn’t that were most folks get their WoW news these days?) where people are mentioning events like buying Legendaries from vendors, and the release of the cinematic where we will retire our artifacts.

I’m not an end game players. I don’t raid, so I don’t care about Legendaries. I know it’s a pride thing for some people, and more power to them, but I couldn’t care less about the status of Legendaries. Legendary items should be rewards at the end of a long quest. Not something you luck into. But that’s old school RPG me.

As far as artifacts go, I think that was the last of my motivation for logging in. Why spend time making my weapon better when I’ll just be handing it in a few months from now. Especially when I have no reason to log in and use it.

I know me. I ebb and flow as far as my WoW interests go. I’ll be bored, then I’ll get bit by the bug and start playing something different. Maybe it’ll be to renew the Ironman challenge. Maybe I’ll want to wreck face in PVP. Maybe I’ll want to build a fortune on a new server.

Right now though,  I’ll just keep clicking my app. There’s things in the really real world that have my interest, like the writing bug that bit me again and consumes my waking hours. Like the Pathfinder campaigns that I’m participating in and running. Also, the damn 2018 Pushup Challenge, where I try to do 2018 pushups in 2018. Currently I’m sitting at just over 500.


What are you doing to keep yourself occupied lately in WoW?

  1. I am never bored in WoW, but even I have started tuning out of updates on Wowhead etc. There are also a ton of spoilers and silly datamining things that give little clue and none of it is set in stone either, so I stopped checking as well.

    What I am doing to keep myself occupied, gosh. I don’t know where to begin. Everything, can I respond that? Little of this and that, pet battles, LFR, old Raids, collecting transmogs, swimming…
