It’s funny, I’ve put off writing this post for awhile. Not because I don’t have anything to love about WoW, but because there is so much to love and I’m finding it difficult to pin down only a few things to talk about.
I doubt this will come as a surprise to anyone who follows my blog or twitter!
I think this is one of the trickiest topics we’ve had for this challenge. For me, when it comes to designing my zone, I had to think about what I liked most about existing zones in WoW.
So, world quests. I personally love world quests. The main reason being that I just love being able to choose to do the quests that give me the rewards I want.
This is such an interesting topic for me, especially at the moment with all the personal changes I have going on. Despite gaming being immensely popular in Australia (check out this report) there is still a stigma associated with being a gamer.
It’s a sad time for anyone who feels their class has moved beyond something they can connect with, and I feel for anyone who has to go through it.
So this week we’re putting together our bucket lists for the year, with the idea of coming back to them at the end of the year to see how we did. Knowing that, in a way, I’ll be held accountable for what I put here has actually made me think about this a little more seriously.
I liked this topic because it was supposed to be a kind of a wish list of things I would like to see in WoW. But you know, when I sat down to think about what I wanted, I came up empty.
I don’t know about others, but for me the dream is to have an NPC named after me in WoW. I know, so lame, but how awesome would that be?! Getting to see yourself in game – what a treat! But what would an NPC in WoW be like if it were based on me? Now that I had to think about.
This week’s topic came about as a result of Z cheering me up one day. I was at work having a miserable day and she was telling me all the wonderful things I could look forward to about heading into Azeroth when I got home. It’s such an awesome topic!
So I think the initial intent of this topic was to talk about the dos and don’ts of pugging, and how to run one. But I haven’t done that for such a long time, so I’m just going to write about my thoughts on the current state of pugging. It’s quite a ramble – I just woke up from a super long nap and I’m quite dopey still!
This week started the 12th birthday celebrations for World of Warcraft. It’s crazy that a game this old is still this popular, although I understand it. The topic we chose for the challenge this week is an opportunity to take a step back and look at how this game has impacted our lives. Because let’s face it – WoW can have a massive impact.
