As tired as I've been, I've been doing things that require little excess energy. Like playing WoW. anher
and I sprang for the expansion pack, but instead of getting out our 60s, we're trying out the new races.
It's like playing in a whole new game. New quests, new people, new awful puns. New areas. I forgot I was on a server where I already had half a dozen Alliance characters (including the 60 pally). Soon, we will leave behind the draenei starting area and have to level through our twenties in one of the ordinary Alliance areas, and I suspect some of the magic will wear off, but for now, everything is new again.anher
rolled up a draenei shammy, and I'm doing a retadin, to see how it goes. We're literally indestructable. The one time one of us died (it was me), I just waited until he finished off our attackers and then rez'd me. I'm not even doing the unkillable protection paladin- it's just the combo of two classes that are flexible in combat and good at surviving.
On another note, the blood elf starting area is the nicest, happiest-looking place in the whole darn game. It's shiny and has magic brooms and bookcases and is pretty all over. I keep having to remind myself that blood elves are Hordies, that they're bloodthirsty magic addicts.
Seriously. It's brighter than anything the night elves have, and full of magic, elvish touches that the humans lack, and open and airy, unlike anything the dwarves or gnomes do. And those are all Alliance. Half the Horde start off in the Barrens, which is nice if you like yellow plains but otherwise bleak, and the undead lands really look like they belong to undead.
All of this means very little productive has been accomplished the last few days, but it was time that I would have otherwise spent sitting and playing minesweeper if I weren't playing WoW, so at least I got to play something pretty. With as tired as I've felt lately, it's been a nice recharge.
