Happy Cinco de Mayo!

So I've finally joined the rest of the planet and started playing World of Warcraft. Yes, I am one of those people who are playing only because all of my friends (the guyfriends anyway) are playing. Another plus is that I'm on my boyfriend's family's account, so I'm not paying.

WoW is admittedly fun in very small doses, but I honestly can't be bothered playing for hours at a time grinding and waiting for an item to drop. It wasn't fun in Asheron's Call, and it isn't fun now. Prettier, but not fun. I suspect that I would have even less fun playing if I didn't have friends to roll with, because, let's face it, most WoW players are jerks. Uru has kinda spoiled me--I'd almost forgotten that friendly helpful people in MMOs are the exception and not the norm. I'd be tempted to play on the role-playing servers to offset "endless fetch quest" boredom, but it would only serve to remind me that Warcraft (no offense) is C-grade fantasy. It wouldn't satisfy my craving for story that I've had since Uru.

Anyway, I only play once in a blue moon, but if you're in Bleeding Hollow, say hi to Schalazeal the human mage of Guild Fignuts!
