It's about all I've been playing while out of town. I've got my Warrior up to 28 now, and I've been exploring a couple of new zones and doing a bunch of quests. My gear is crap, and while that doesn't matter so much since 99% of the time I'm soloing, it means that I kind of suck in groups, and I get my ass handed to me in PvP. The latter could just be that I'm a noob at dueling and ganking, but regardless, I'm looking to correct this.
My WoW gaming, while taking up a lot of time, has been remarkably casual. I've barely done any forum-browsing or database searching in my off-game time. Reading a strategy guide on the plane and around my parents' place is really about it so far; something that is very much in stark contrast to the way I played and obsessed over FFXI. This is probably at least partly due to the fact that so far WoW is primarily a solo experience. I almost never even talk to another player, let alone be required to spend hours LFG just to go grind out some XP. I've kind of felt that this is a double-edged sword, though. What keeps people from getting all the way to the level cap and being totally ignorant of how groups work, or of how to behave in one? FFXI players, for the most part, are damn well trained by the mid to late game.
Just something I was pondering.
