My Excuses, Let Me Give You Them
Yep, things have been slow around here. As I mentioned a couple of posts ago, I’ve discovered that being perfectly happy and content with your gaming life leads to a very boring blog. I have to admit, it bothers me a tiny bit to realize how this space has suffered because I truly do enjoy blogging. But I’m certainly not going to complain about being in the perfect guild with the perfect people. Lack of blog posts is a very small price to pay for such an amazing environment.
But aside from that sickening display of love for my people, I have also been busy with alts. While I have always been someone who creates a lot of characters because I enjoy deciding how they should look and what they should be named, I never really get them very far before I delete them to create someone new. I played WoW for over 4 years and only ever had 1 toon reach max level. The second highest alt I had hit around 70. The many others I created seemed to never make it past their 30s. But as you can see from the screenshot above, I have recently made some progress with several alts. Yes, they are actually still pretty low level but I am admittedly a very slow leveler. I always have been. Too much time spent taking screenshots, tabbed out googling items, sitting idle behind a tree while talking in guild chat, etc. So I am very excited to see those alts up there. I also have a Smuggler on a separate server (co-worker peer pressure) who’s level 18. Hooray me, I’m alting!
When I’m not alting or running Operations with the gang, I am farming. Farming in SWTOR isn’t as easy as what I’m used to from my previous MMO experience, but it can still be done. Sure, most of my farming consists of just standing on the fleet and sending my minions out on missions for companion gifts and missions I can sell on the GTN, but I am also spending a lot of time making circles around a lake on Voss gathering Quick-Growth Agent so I can create stims for the guild bank. That… is pretty boring, to be honest. But it’s a necessary evil.
Okay, there you have it. My list of excuses to explain why I have not been blogging as much lately as I started out doing. Luckily, between the new busy server we are now on and the fact that patch 1.3 drops today, I am pretty optimistic things will begin to pick back up. So keep checking back. I will be blabbering about something soon enough. I may even decide to return to Twitter. I’ve really slacked off on that lately.
