After 3 really awesome years of playing this game with some of the best people I've ever had the pleasure of gaming with I called it quits today. Liberating, yet sad at the same time.

Obligatory "Can I have your stuff?". I congratulate you.

I've been bouncing around other MMOs for a while since I WOW-detoxed. I will probably go back someday.

I quit because it wasn't fun anymore. Raiding every week started to feel like work and I was only around for my friends. I decided to give it a rest and they all understood.

My brother and his wife were the same way. Our guild raided on the only three nights a week she has off from work, and it got to be like a second job for them. My brother has become more of a casual player but Steph has pretty much given up on the game all together for now.

We had a lot of great times when we were tackling new content and rocking it, but things just get stale at some point. I don't regret my time spent playing, but it was silly to keep doing something that made me miserable, haha.

I've been contemplating getting back into it, but for me it's more about pugs and bgs. I've come to realize that I don't actually enjoy being in most guilds, and most of the scheduled raiding I've been part of has sucked the joy out of raiding.

It's easier to pug than it's ever been yo. Plus random dungeon/bg is amazing.

You guys know that if you actually know and like the people you play with, it makes raiding that much better.

So stop being a bunch of PuGgers and make some toons Horde side on Eldre'Thalas.

Message me for guild invites.

Yep, both Jamie and I...My soon to be wife, some friends we've known in game for a very long time. Mongo, Resh...

Basically what Resh said. Join us if you'd like. We're not a hardcore raiding guild, but we usually raid 10 ICC twice a week. We're up to Putricide and the Princes atm.

Good people, fun to play with. I think you'd like it more than just a bunch of names and voices without faces.

Well, I could transfer my lock. Does that work, or do I need to level something else?

Play whatever you want man. If you wanna bring your current toon over then go ahead. We don't make requirements for toon classes.

Ok, sweet. I'm getting it installed now. It'll take time to get transfered, figure out what I'm doing again with the talent revamps, and be ready to not embarrass myself.

Psh, I embarrass myself on a regular basis and I play regularly.

The last time I transferred a toon over it only took about 20 mins total. And that was for the Faction Change and the server transfer.

That's good to hear. Their FAQ is all "it might take 3 days"
