WoW mostly

I’ve been in a gaming mood lately, which is unusual for me. I’ve managed to level 2 times in the last week, which sounds lame but the gap from 85-86 and 86-87 is a hefty one to cross. I’m now only 3 levels away from cap, which is really exciting. I’m very much a mood gamer – restraint isn’t usually an issue for me, as when I generally game it’s only for an hour or two until I get bored. Occasionally I’ll have periods, like this/last week and a few weeks over the summer, where I just feel like playing to my hearts content and find the whole experience enjoyable (if I were to push myself to do that, I’d have an hour of fun, and then just be bored).
I’m finally in Pandaria, which is beautiful. It’s obvious that Blizzard put a lot of effort into it – and it’s better than when I tested it in Beta last spring. I love being somewhat immersed in story lines when I’m on these gaming kicks, and that’s what makes it fun for me.
Anyway, I’ve been gaming extensively for the last week and a half. I forgot where this was going other than to maybe prove and remind myself that I’m allowed to indulge and game all I want when I feel like I want to – it happens so rarely that there’s no need to be judgey about it. Then, when I’m done, I can go back to being a responsible adult.
But for however long this lasts, I’m going to continue to run around, pick flowers, defeat beasts, and fly on kites.

Raiding and Leveling

I decided to spend today playing WoW and cleaning (because my hands were too cold after washing dishes to paint). So I was hanging around Ironforge doing my last Love Is In the Air quests when someone on the trade channel was looking for healers. The other day I just completed my Paladin’s Holy talent tree (healing abilities) and set up a second action bar for just my heal spells so I could do dungeons with some friends. So I sent him a tell and did my first raid with a bunch of level 85’s. Nobody died! I can heal people! yay! Admittedly, we were going against level 72 Elites and a boss, but still, being the lowest level player and the healer for 4 other 85’s, I felt pretty good about myself.
Not to mention, that I earned 100 gold just from that instance.
So I’m going to be doing some more dungeons with friends later, hopefully, and I definitely will try to be less shy about offering my healing services for people looking to raid.
I also got some Epic clothing for when I hit level 70 (half a level to go). And while I was questing in Netherstorm, I got an axe that GLOWS! Finally I have glowing weapons!
WIN!
