With a tip of the hat to Bullet Points, whose format I stol… er, was inspired by without really thinking about it today.
I’m moving fast. I gained another two levels last night, reaching 32, a new personal record on the Horde side. My auctions came through, and I had enough to buy my mount (I elected not to wait, possibly for a couple of months, for the next big patch to lower the cost – having a mount will help me get around faster and therefore, level faster,) train for 32, and have plenty left over. I also, more to clear out my overflowing bank than for any other reason, pushed my Leatherworking from 81 to 130, getting the Expert level, as well as the Arisan level in Skinning, which now sits at 250.
Whilst questing in Thousand Needles (a zone I dislike because I have an issue with vertigo and standing on great heights in-game can trigger it, and you do a lot of stuff on very tall mesas in that zone,) I discovered a new little nook that I hadn’t known was there, where some chimerae or manticores or something were nesting. I love this kind of thing, discovering something new about the virtual world. I also found a back way into the Sepulcher, which was less visually impressive.
I even took screenshots, which is something I often don’t bother with in WoW.
There are some blog posts talking about Aion HERE, HERE and HERE. As much as I would like to dismiss it with a wave of my lordly hand, it does look really good. I think I can hold out this time around, though. I am as committed to WoW as I have ever been to an MMO. Not for forever, of course, but for the time being.
Revamp En Route
This is my 450th post in this space. I’m seeing a lot of traffic right now, by my very modest standards. Expect to see some appearance changes here in the next couple of weeks as I go through links, make minor adjustments, and (probably) pick a new WordPress template.
The Next CCP Project
Today Massively is asking the question of what CCP’s next announced project is going to be; as previously noted, CCP’s CEO will be giving a first look at whatever it is at GDC Europe in August. Many people, including myself, think (and hope) that this will be World of Darkness Online, but as James Egan points out, the company has also hinted that it’s working on an FPS set in the EVE universe as well. CrazyKinux, King of the EVE Bloggers, discusses the FPS possibility as well. We probably shouldn’t entirely discount the idea that the announcement will be something entirely new, although I still think it’s probably 75% certain to be WoDO.
