An Ex-Gnome Tank's World


February 23rd, 2009 Posted in General

A little under two years later, and I’ve hit post 100. Time for a little retrospective, I think.

Back in March, 2007, a raider forĀ  tiny little Kara guild, who played a rogue, introduced a view of Warcraft that was what the little guy was seeing. Updates continued, somewhat more sporadically, until July when my new obsession, and what this blog came to be mainly about, happened: my tank hit level 70.

There were a couple more posts when we hit Gruul for the first time, but then progression stopped. And I stopped writing – what’s to be said about running the same content week-in, week-out for months?

Unsurprisingly our guild, Dead Code Elimination, collapsed. I went on to my new guild, The Hidden Circle, eventually dragging some of my old guildmates along with me. Others went to other raiding guilds, or a newly formed, much more casual version of what had gone before.

Somewhere along the way I picked up some readers and really started to get into the whole blogging thing. To all of you who’ve read or commented – thank you all very much! About the same time, we started running Mount Hyjal and Black Temple, making steady progress even through the summer when so many people were off on holiday elsewhere.

In the intervening time I’ve set down my rules for a stress-free life, which I’ll break whenever I want to, talked about why everyone’s loot system sucks, railed against “Main Tank” priority, and generally just had a good time.

So, here’s to the last 100 posts. And to all the people who’ve commented on them. May the next 100 be just as enjoyable for me to post to, and for others to read!

    Congrats on the centenary – I’ve always enjoyed your posts – doubly so because they directly relate to my playing experience (what with being same side on same server).

    Here’s to 100 more!

    Grats to your first 100 posts and to continued blogging. I always enjoy your posts as well, even though you always disagree with my casual mindset somehow. Doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy it over here. It must be that gnome hates orc thing, and orc wants to gnaw on that gnome. ;)

    Keep up the great work.
