Taking a Break

I’ve been MIA for a little while from RoM. Last Friday I logged on with Spiral and played Malatina’s Survival Game. Then I stared at my screen for a while and thought:
I could try more level 54 quests and see if I get killed again.
I could run another group of lowbies through FA or BG or NoM.
I could farm mats and level up my Tailoring skill.
I could do dailies to get closer to level 55.
I could recruit more members into the guild and chat with them.


I found myself standing listlessly in Varanas Central watching other players run back and forth from the Auction House to the Mailbox to the Transporter and I realized that I didn’t want to do anything of those things. I just wanted to log off.
So I figured it was time for a little break away from Taborea.

MMOs are highly addictive but there does come a time when the daily grind can get a little tiresome. It happens to the best of us! The smartest thing to do is take a rest, do some stuff in RL (real life) that makes you happy, and then wait for that excited feeling to come back, that feeling that entering Taborea is going to be an adventure, not a chore.

I have been playing almost every day for close to a year now but I know that I am nowhere near ready to quit the game yet. There are more quests to do, places to explore, beasties to kill and adventures to be had. I still want to reach level 55, complete Kalin’s, Pasper’s, TT, HoTo and any other instance I haven’t done, make awesome super-statted gear that looks fantastic too, max out all my skills, and rebuild Medieval to the fantastic guild it used to be.

So I’ll be back soon, friends. Watch for me!

  1. Been there, done that...a few times actually. Go play Mass Effect. Then Mass effect 2. Read some great books...and even some not so great ones. Who knows, you may never come back to MMO's...and that's okay. You might find, like I did, that improving your own RL "stats and gear" is equally fun!

    Enjoy your time away and best of luck!
