Almost seven years ago, I started on a journey that took me through amazing in-game events. What I saw back then was magical. The world known as Azeroth and the game, World of Warcraft. Playing with friends was amazing. We went through content together, conquered evil foes, took out opposing faction cities, and achieved much success along the way in regards to achievements, items, titles, guilds, gear, and of course, gold.
Today, all of the above is still in place but the magical part of it, what attracted me years ago, is gone. No matter how much I play or what I do, even with friends, it has died. I thought it would have been a harder decision to make, but honestly, it was pretty easy and something that seems to have lifted a burden off my chest. Yes, for some reason, I feel better about myself and my decision.
What have I accomplished? It does not really matter. The goals that were in front of me where crossed off. I want to think that I helped people along the way and brushed shoulders with some very exceptional people. There are too many to name but it was a hell of a trip. One that I will always remember and more importantly, cherish.
What will I be doing with my toons, items, and millions? I am sure some of you are wondering about this. Honestly, I believe in earning what you have so you appreciate it. My account(s), yes I had 3 of them just myself, will be closed with all the items/gold in tact. The only action I will be taking in game is transferring GuildMaster over to family/friends so the legacies of the guild can continue under honest and true leadership. The rest is history…
What will I do now with my site? I’m going to keep it going. My love of writing, being creative, and sharing what I am doing will always remain. The question now will be, do you enjoy reading what I am writing now if it is not Wow related. The choice is yours. Either way, I respect your decisions and hope to have our paths cross again.
In any event, the time has come for me to take my leave from World of Warcraft. I want to wish you ALL best wishes in your adventures, gold making, and everything else you plan to do in-game and in life. This is NOT a goodbye, this is simply a farewell until we meet again. I am not leaving the internet (that would be impossible), just changing up what I am doing. There are a few writing projects (books) I want to finish up in real-life, get myself back into the gym, continue on with my psychology education, and simply do more with my family. There is a world outside of gaming I truly love and enjoy. The world is an amazing place when you look at it with artistic eyes…
Thanks for being YOU and the support you have given me to date, and if you stick around, the continued support.
If you leave, know this, we had good times together.
