What sparked YOUR return to Azeroth?7 replies to this topic

Hey there everyone!!! Ive missed you all, and the wonderful community here.honestly. but you know what its like when life starts taking twists and turns that need 100% focus. Ive been gone for a while, mostly because of ...well, life. As with any of you, we had a lot of things, some good, some terribly bad, that kept us from gaming for a while. As i logged into my main after several week to two week at a time breaks from Azeroth, my chat windows exploded with messages from those types we ALL KNOW....
You know what im talking about. Those people who we have never met in person, but who we know sometimes better than our own flesh and blood friends and family. It made me even more convinced that the people we meet through our digital travels are not ANY less important than the ones we can shake hands with in person.
So as i return fully to my Guild, Role as Dungeon Mistress of Stormwind, punisher of those who stand in fire, and other roles on Silver Hand, i was longing to return here as well. The holidays are a time to come together as friends and family, and it had me wondering......
....what was YOUR longest time away from Azeroth....and WHAT precipitated your return?
For me, almost 3 months was too long to be away.... and what brought me back was simply having a change in life that allowed for me to slow down, rekindle old friendships, and ENJOY the gameplay that i had been msising.......besides.... i had to make VERY GOOD use of the Alienware M14X my daddy got me for my birthday last month Just goes to show that even at my age, you never stop being Daddys little Rogue!!!

I played seriously during wrath, had a great guild that I really enjoyed playing with, naxx and ulduar time period was raiding hardcore...however raiding was taking up too much time in my life and at the same time when Cata dropped I honestly didn't really like Cata...I leveled a couple guys to 85, did not really enjoy the 5-mans and was not raiding...so quit playing for a while. Restarted for Pandaria, leveled a couple guys to 90, lost interest again...or actually most of my guildies started playing SWTOR, played that for a while...came back to pandaland at 5.4 and found another guild I enjoy playing with and am enjoying it alot again but without the hardcore raiding time commitment. Mostly just LFR and flex when I can and although I'll never get great gear its a better all around fit for my life.

Give me some rope, tie me to dream...
I find that whenever I go on break from wow, Community (see above lyric reference) is the one thing that always brings me back to wow. Most of my time raiding has been with a mixture of RL friends and people I've been raiding with since Vanilla, and generally as we explore new games or xpacs, we do it all together; it's a great tool for keeping in touch with friends I don't get to see too regularly due to distance. I just recently joined a new guild, and I'm hoping that I can build good relationships there so that the time I spend playing wow, either raiding or otherwise, is enjoyable and filled with people that are chill.
