One of the things that has kept me continuously interested in WoW for almost 2 years is how many different things one can do to keep the throws of boredom away. The only time I have ever been fed up with playing was when I was in the middle of a level and had nothing to do to get to the next level but grind. That really sucks, but only if your single-minded goal is getting to the next level.
I consider myself to be an intellectual gamer. By that, I mean that even when I’m relaxing by playing a game, I’m not brain-dead. I am constantly figuring out better ways to play, new things to do, and basically trying to know everything possible about the game. Some people just play to have fun, but for me playing with intent is fun.
Here are some of the many things I have done to stay on top of my game:
- Game mechanics
- Auction Hall profiteering
- Blogging about WoW
- Giving in to my inner alt-aholic
- Trying both PvP and PvE
Right now, Huntr is at 50 and getting bored with Tanaris, so he’s camping out Humar the Pridelord again and will move to Blasted Lands to try a shot at Grubber (I think that’s his name). I hear he has a 36-48 hour respawn, but at least he has a limited range, too.
The powerleveling is wearing me down because of the lack of content to my posts lately. So… I’m making it official:
Would any of you, my dear, fine readers, mind if I stopped my powerleveling at level 50 and we’ll just know that I can get to 50 really fast and have huge kahonas for not running instances for 50 levels? Man, I missed SM, RFD, and Maradon. That makes me somewhat sad, and I don’t want to miss out on BRD or UBRS/LBRS.
