Grant has been playing “World of Warcraft”
I recently re-subscribed to World of Warcraft. Over the past couple of years, the same years I’ve been at University, I’ve had a love/hate relationship with the game. Whenever I’m not playing, I miss it. When I’m playing, I get bored pretty quickly. Usually what stops that process is the promise that comes with a new expansion release, and low and behold we have one at the end of the summer with Legion. In Legion, we get the re-emergence of Illidan, and the introduction of the new Demon Hunter class.
Getting reintroduced this early just allows me to get some of the classes that I’m having more fun with up to the current level cap of 100 in order to be ready for the expansion release date. As well, I can get familiar with my old guild mates again. We can go through the now exhausted raid content and find our chemistry again. In my first couple of days back, it’s been really fun to reconnect, especially with a couple of people I even knew in real life.
The leveling and raid content is still feeling a little stale, but I’m really excited for Legion, and since I have more free time this summer, I’m hoping to get some of the tasks that feel like chores finished and over with. So far, it has been working, and surprisingly it has all become fun again. World of Warcraft is a great game when the social overrides and influences the personal grind of leveling and winning some gear. That’s what has been happening for me, and I could not be happier to be back right now. – Grant Johnson
