So today wraps up the Canthan New Year festival again. Our alliance sponsored three districts this year because we had soooo many supplies left over from last year's enthusiastic farmers. I helped in a few of them but have to end earlier than I used to due to my new work schedule - I work early. I have to be up about three hours earlier than I used to.
But I got to rollerbeetle race again (whee ♥) and although my scoring wasn't so great this year, it was still a lot of fun to race around as a shiny beetle. I also got a tiger mini-pet, so that was cool. I didn't get an oxen last year, but a thankful visitor to our sponsored district gave our group one and I was the only one that still needed one there, so it came to me.
I've been away from Guild Wars mostly the last few months since I started this new job. It has taken me a long time to adjust to these hours and a new sleep schedule. But I think I'm finally getting the hang of it. Plus with having a laptop (got for Christmas, thanks hun!), I can go play in the living room and visit with the kids at the same time.
So I think I'm going to start working on my pre-searing mesmer again. She's my LDOA contender, and I had just gotten the hang of pulling Charr for death-leveling when I pretty much quit playing. Job-hunting stress was killing me. So now I'm feeling better about all that and am more settled in at my new job, I feel like I can think about playtime again.
Guild Wars 2 is supposed to out next year (hopefully), so I need to kick it into high gear to get some titles completed for my Hall of Monuments. The LDOA is one, plus I need to max my drunkard, lightbringer and sunspear, and then I might think about cartographer titles - might. That's a stretch. lol Vanquisher I probably won't ever touch. I got quite annoyed with Hard Mode from the beginning - it turned a group of comfortable friends into bickering nits. They kept on and completed their vanquishing within a few months, but I couldn't take the squabbling and dropped out of that project.
Oh, and after my mesmer gets her LDOA, I'm going to have to take her post-searing. I thought I would keep her in pre forever, but ya know, she's been there two years already. I think she'll be okay with leaving.
Seems really weird that I've been playing this game for four and a half years now. Nice game, good ol' Guild Wars. Yeah. That's bizarre.
