I feel like I haven’t really personalized much of my blog lately, and have just been reporting the balance druid news. I’m away for the weekend on a quick vacation, and had a few moments to sit down and talk about what I’ve been up to the last few weeks.
If you’ve been following my Tweets closely (or paid attention to the blog), you’ll notice that I returned to the Horde. The several months I spent as a Night Elf were .. different, but it just didn’t feel right. Seriously Casual is a great guild with great people, it just didn’t feel like my home.
I joined a guild called “Titan” on Blackhand in early February, and spent about a month there. There were some good people in Titan, however I did not particularly agree with their leadership style (or lack thereof). I don’t want to go too into detail, but it really felt like people logged in to raid, spent 4 hours raiding, and logged back out, with no real discussion, theorycrafting, or passion to understand the fights.
I’ve recently stumbled on my current guild, Out of Line, on Stormreaver. They are 9/12 heroic, and this week we’ve made great progress on Putricide. I expect him down this week. (5% wipe is our best attempt). So far I really love it here. The players for the majority are in their twenties and in college or careers, so while it’s a grueling schedule, they understand that we all have careers that may occasionally take priority. Everyone’s also on a first name basis, which is a new thing for me, but it’s nice, it seems like people are actually interested in getting to know each other. People are online all the time, on Ventrilo and in game, and there’s plenty of discussions and theorycrafting during our downtime, and a lot of discussion and collaboration during the attempts as well. So far it seems like I’ve found a comfortable home to settle into while we finish Icecrown and move into Cataclysm.
