Midsummer Fire Festibleh

Done with Aaeru’s 2nd go around (lvl 47).  Done with Korby.  Still have Innoruuk’s 2nd run, and Dalkado left to do, not to mention all my teen alts going for the few they can safely reach.  Yes I like the free experience and the money, but damn, it’s boring work.

Way back on July 4th or 5th, somewhere around there, I stopped playing WoW. I picked it back up last week, so my rest exp had like 7 weeks to accumulate. I still have not caught up to my rest exp marker. I didn’t see it until I hit 65, and now that I just hit 66 like 5 minutes ago, it’s down around the 85% mark on the line, and I’m sure that logging off nightly and doing quests is going to push it further into 67 for me as well. It kind of makes me wonder if I will ever catch up to it, or if I will be riding the rest exp all the way into 70.

You know, I’ve barely played WoW since the 7th. I can’t really explain it, other than to say I just haven’t been interested. I’m sure I’ll get back to it, I mean I don’t want to be 62 forever, and I’m sure I can ride my way into 64 pretty easily with all that rest exp I’ve built up, but I just find myself somewhat bored at the thought of sitting down and grinding it out.

This could not have come at a better time. Since I started playing WoW in late April, I’ve done nothing but level endlessly. I just reached 48 last night, and I am burned out. Then, today, I get an e-mail from SOE, the kind people who brought us EverQuest. My inactive account has been restored until July 25th. In fact, ALL inactive EQ accounts have been restored until July 25th. They’ve boosted exp in zones, upped the drop rate on items, returning players get full sets of armor and weapons to help them get back into things including potions that boost exp gain and run speed. For me, this is a welcomed distraction from the grind that I’m feeling over in WoW. There are some changes to zones since the last time I logged in that I’ve been wanting to see, and I’m really curious as to if my guys are all still there or not, heh.

Now the goofy downside to this free 2 months of play: I have 25 hours worth of patching to do.

HOURS

25 of them. Wow.

Well it’s not like I didn’t expect it.
