Meaghan and I have been enjoying a break from our favorite online passtime recently. We decided to take a few weeks off from playing the World of Warcraft and those week have already turned into a little over a month. The outlook for Azeroth does not look good from there either as we’re both really enjoying doing something different for a while. There is no doubt that Warcraft helped us save a heck of a lot of money. Fifteen dollars a month for hundreds of hours of entertainment is hard math to argue with and we’ve seen a significant increase in our spending this month already.
However, it’s been nice to enjoy some other passtimes for a chance. I’m still playing video games like crazy; I always have and always will. Yet despite that, we still have oodles more free time for plenty of other stuff. With the lovely summer weather we’re having, we’ve spent a lot more time doing that whole outside thing too. It’s been nice to take some evening walks, and really great to get out with our friends more.
So, sorry to our friends in Azeroth, but you might not be seeing the return of Stuart and Meaghan any time soon. We still raid with people on Sunday afternoon for a couple of hours on the weeks where the guild actually has enough people to go, but other than that we’re pretty much done. I’m sure that when Wrath of the Lich King comes out (reportedly in November) that we’ll return for a while to enjoy the new content, but for now I’m hanging up my staff and cloak and return to that whole real life thing for a while. I have to admit that the Lifecraft graphics are a little better, although I really miss being able to fly on a golden gryphon. I’m sure I’ll get used to it in time.
