Finding the Fun Again – Halp?

Ying and Yang
Ying and Yang

I haven’t played WoW in… quite a while now actually. I get the sad little playtime reminder emails once a week that make me feel guilty, but not guilty enough to stop playing Diablo.

So it’s time to sit down and focus on what made WoW fun and how to find that again. (And no, I’m not starting a new pair of alts because srsly? TOO MANY ALTS. *mutter*)

Any suggestions, oh blogosphere? Should I try achievement hunting? Focus on PvP like I’ve meant to? Play just my main for a bit so I have at least one toon at 85? Join a guild and chat with friends?

And yes, I know the Camp NaNoWriMo August session is incoming… but the more I have on my plate, the better I seem to do. 😉

    If you’re still having fun with Diablo, why feel guilty about not playing WoW?

    If you’re feeling overwhelmed by your alts, then perhaps you should focus on getting to level 85 and achievement hunting with your “main”. Having a character at (or at least close to) max level would also allow you to do things like coming to Amateur Azerothian’s Laid Back Raids, which would at least partly fill in the “chatting with friends” function, too.

    I’m so used to not getting comments that I didn’t even see this one come through– sorry! 🙁

    Mostly the feeling guilty comes from the fact that I’m spending money on a game I’m not playing. Although since I’m counting my WoW subscriptions as a faux-gym membership I guess things balance out since I’m playing Diablo. *pokes flimsy rational and watches it wobble*

    I think you’ve got a good idea about falling back on my main for a bit. Playing her is certainly less intimidating that facing dual-Priest PVP… at some point though I’m going to have to bite the bullet and get used to failing again. (I know it’s failing upwards, but still.)
