Zelmaru hinted a few weeks ago that she was feeling the summer doldrums… raids didn’t seem that great anymore, the loot wasn’t as shiny and she just had plain more fun with her alt. That feeling was echoed by a few people in the guild. At the time I was thinking, thank God it’s not me!
Well, it has catched up with me… big time… I started a gnome warlock a few days back just to pass some time and I quickly realized I was enjoying myself a lot more with the alt than with my main. For those who do not know me I’m the very opposite of alt person. I’m a main-holic… so when I’m enjoying alts more it means usually something is off. When I stopped to think about it I quickly realized what was going, I was simply burning out on my main.
Thing is, raiding every weekend for close to 7 months now is about as long as I’ve done in a single strech since Vanilla. It speaks volume about how great a guild is Eff the Ineffable but I suppose that at some point it was bound to happen. Simply, I want/need more time for real life during the weekends. Plus, Firelands are not really clicking with me so I guess there’s that not helping too. I don’t know if there’s something really off with the content or if it’s me but right now all I see is a weird crossover between Molten Core (fire… Rag… yeah….) and Tournament of Champions (dailies… wooo…..).
With all that said, I figured I’d follow wise Zel advice and do something I find fun (alt!) and don’t worry too much about letting the team down. Being burned for good is not that much better for the team after all.
