I feel so ashamed. I haven't gotten a notice from Blog Azeroth in weeks, so I thought they discontinued the whole "Blog of the Week" feature. Thank you to everyone who stopped by!
And for the rest of you, I'm sure you have been wondering where in Azeroth I have been the last month or so. Well, frankly, SWTOR. I pre-ordered and got started early. And even with pre-ordering, my Sith Inquisitor is only level 21 right now. Work kept me hopping over the holidays. Here's my Sith Sith:
I love her mohawk.
Now, don't worry, I haven't completely abandoned Hearthyn and Ravyyn and Zalok and Diralei, etc. I am not done with the world of Azeroth yet.
But when I was, oh, 10 maybe? My parents took me and my brothers to the drive-in. (Movie theaters were sometimes outdoors on huge screens back when dinosaurs roamed the earth.) And there, on the big screen, for it's second showing at theaters, we watched the wonder that was Star Wars, before it became Episode 4. Luke and Leia and Han Solo, all bigger than life, in a story so epically and beautifully told.
I've been hooked ever since.
So naturally, when I learned of Star Wars: The Old Republic coming out as an MMORPG, well, I had to try it.
I have to say this: I have tried Everquest, Luvinia, Guild Wars, Lord of the Rings Online, and several other MMO's. WoW is the only one that kept my interest until now. SWTOR is, well, pretty freaking cool. After all, my Inquisitor shoots lightning from her hands, gets her own spaceship and gets to play with lightsabers. In my book, the only thing that tops that is getting to fly on dragons.
So yes, I will be returning to World of Warcraft. Eventually.
Happy New Year!
