The Carp is a Lie and … Stuff
Yeah, this is getting ridiculous. It’s even interfering with pet battling , I hope this Carp thing doesn’t advance to Minfernal level. I mean I don’t need them all right away … just one as kind of a sign that they really do exist. I’m not picky, any color will do. On the up-side I’m finally getting some rep with Nat Pagle.
I was playing SWTOR a little over the weekend. I was really proud, I’m level 20. I am such a fast leveler, you might say I EXCEL at leveling … already level 20, I am moving so fast, I am … what … oh. It seems they were having an event where experience was doubled for a period of time. Oh … OMG! I AM A CRAPPY LEVELER. GEEZ! Stupid little slow poke Jedi Consular.
Anyway, this might be just me, maybe I’m doing something wrong but where’s the faffing stuff. It’s all business. If I login I have to go do something, I mean something meaningful like kill a bunch of people or turn off a bunch of valves or something. As should be apparent I spend most of my time in WoW faffing. Archeology, pet battles, fishing, exploring. I can’t seem to remember what you do in SWTOR when you want to faff. It’s probably how we ended up buying a vehicle because I couldn’t find any faffing to do.
I wrote a whole post the other day and just trashed it today. I thought about it and if you have to whine on the internet about being unhappy in a GAME YOU PLAY FOR FUN then you need to get a grip and grow up. I got a grip but I doubt I’ll ever grow up. The only part that saddened me was that the post had I Hate Myself For Lovin’ You in it and any chance to watch Joan Jett should be taken.
Anyway again. There still is just this one thing. I won’t whine, it’s more of a conundrum … yeah … a conundrum, that’s what it is. I have come to hate the Isle of Thunder dailies. I pretty much go there and kill rares and then leave. On reflecting, I remembered coming to hate the Molten Front dailies a whole lot too. What confuses me is that I’m pretty sure I got multiple characters to exalted with the Shattered Sun on the Isle of Quel’Danas. I don’t feel like retching at the thought of Isle of Quel’Danas dailies like I do with the aforementioned daily sites. And back then there was no buying anything the first time through for increased rep for alts either.
I think I’ve figured it out. Molten Front and the Isle of Thunder are kind of dreary and full of things trying to kill you. Isle of Quel’Danas is beautiful, sunny, has a wonderful beach and is full of things trying to kill you. There it is. Apparently I’ll endure anything as long as it takes place on lovely beachfront property.
So there you go Blizzard. You need to make these daily zones more cheerful. Maybe I’m just a big scaredy-cat. It could be, I would just login to Diablo and look around and go, “Oh crap, this place is too scary for me.” and log out again. How about at least a hot dog stand along the road somewhere. Oh come on, I so see the Goblins doing that, what do you say?
