I miss playing. I will be honest and also say: I don’t have time to miss it a lot. But I do miss logging in and playing.
Including the beta, we’ve been playing Guild Wars 2 now for more than a year. That’s amazing. So all in all, it is not too strange that I have slowed down with bloggin about it, nor is it strange that we don’t play every night anymore. To be honest, we did not play every night anyway. But we do play less these days, due to various reasons.
Have we finished personal story? No. Not on any character. Have we done map completion? No. We are more than half way there though. Have we done all the dungeons? No. We haven’t done one. Except half an our or so in a fractal. Am I fully decked out in top armour and stuff? No. But I am getting there!
I am glad that we stayed out of server drama. Yes, Aurora Glade has an awesome PvE population, mostly. I know, because I play PvE. And yes, there are dickheads in WvW, like there are dickheads in any online game with teenage boys. Or 14 year old girls. But I don’t have to associate with them, or parent them, or try to make them less dickheady. I can just play with people I like, and that’s enough. At least I am not depending on dickheads to complete my game experience. Yay!
As soon as this phase in our life is over, and before another one starts inevitably, and we’re sitting in our new house, with our chores done, we will sit down and look out at the new view through our window, sigh happily … and turn to our cpmputer screen to play some more Guild Wars 2. Promise. Plus! I will continue Keiswyn and Rydan’s story sometime.
Well, you know how it goes. You play, you work, you sleep… and then updating your games blog becomes secondary. There is little news to write about, really. We do a daily now and then, we run with some guildies when we have time and that’s about it.
Still not finding many dyes, by the way. One every week of playing, is what I estimate. Five still seems to find more than me. Probably just my envious mind miscalculating his loot.
Updating the blog is getting a bit sporadic. But I would have posted yesterday, because we had the day off. Unfortunately, Guild Wars 2 has awesome stuff to do, and entertained me with april fools related stuff. Damn that game for making me forget to blog!
On a wednesday? Yes. This is us carrying … runaway crabs.
I keep forgetting to make time to write posts. But it often comes down to writing a blogpost or playing. I pick playing any day.
On the dye front, i can say that i am finding dyes daily again. I found 4 on Saturday!
It isn’t often that we can try to do the monthly achievement. We had to do stuff like Dungeons to make that, and we rarely… eh, never, do dungeons. But this month things changed. We already have 2 of the 4 or 5 things we need to do.
Sunday we had to forfeit our Event Run to catch up for the monthly. Because we spent 30 minutes standing around, waiting for people to get organised to do a guild mission. Yes, I was pissed off, because we had about an hour, we could have done an event chain as well. Thirty minutes is half the time we were supposed to be online. I guess it kinda sucks if you have a life and obligations to say: work.
Or… it sucks if you join up with people who lack simple organising skills…
Anyway. We ended up doing the Bounty hunt with our own guild (organised in less than 7 minutes, targets found in 10, and brought down in eh… 10 minutes again? That’s less time than some people spend organising groups to go out and hunt down the targets. But that would be petty of me to point out.). That was fun, so at least I felt I had accomplished something. I fell asleep like a baby quaggan that night. Coo.
