Back in the Old Routine

February 15th, 2009 Posted in General

It took long enough, but it finally happened.

I’m back in the pre-WotLK routine of raiding and not much else. It’s that simple. There’s not much to do other than farm and raid, and I don’t mind this one bit. I’ve seen every raid instance, and defeated it (though Sartharion plus 3 is still on the cards), I’ve done more daily quests than I could ever want. So it’s back to the meat of the game.

I’ve stopped pugging again, not because I have developed any dislike of pugs, but because I no longer see anything that’s a useful upgrade coming from anything I could pug. The “holes” in my gear are all now raid items, and they’re upgrades from Naxx-10 or heroic gear. I haven’t changed my mind about pugs being good for the soul, but there’s a limit – when I’m not going to get anything out of them, it’s time to move on.

More than anything, I’m looking forward to Ulduar.  If it doesn’t appear soon, then I might have to go back and actually level an alt. I think the world might end if that ever happened.

    I’m in a similar situation. And now that OS+3 is done, its really just going to be farming with a side of raid achievements to keep things semi-fresh.

    I’m glad, though, that I’ve “saved” questing. I’ve been cleaning up each zone completely before moving on. I just last night finished Sholenzar, and have two full (large) zones totally untouched.

    I am slacking with the raiding, as we’re in the same position, only gear standing in our way of doing OS+3, everything else perfectly on farm.

    The Kal’uak dalies to get a fishing pole were the last things I had to do to gain something outside of raiding. Well, there’s still the cooking daily and some farming for gold but that only takes a few minutes. So, I pretty much in the same boat. Only raids. There’s no point to heroics when there’s no gear I want and the emblems don’t get me anything either. I can sell more frozen orbs but I’m not hurting for money and I end up with emblems from 10 man Naxx anyway (even though I’ve been trying to skip those runs too).

    We still have Malygos to get down and OS with drakes up but niether excite me much.
