One of many envies, but one I have felt recently and, as is often the case with envy, for no good reason.
My recent envy attack was based on Larisa’s comment. Yes I am envious of Larisa, in more ways than one. But, this is about achievements, in the1st instance, so let’s start there.
I am an achievement addict, and I need help.
If I am honest with myself, when I read/hear about someone else picking up an achievement, I shrivel a little inside.
Tiddlywinks makes me /cry.
I want it all!
I try to stay sane and remember that I don’t have the time to devote to the task, but it is still eating away quietly inside…
There are other envies.
Prelimar spurred this post. All the talk about the scorchling made me realize I had to have it. No matter how hard, no matter the RNG, I want it. I will cope if I don’t get it, but I will /cry a little inside when it doesn’t drop. Or worse, it drops and I don’t win the roll.
No, I don’t have one yet, and doubt I will get one… I have lots of 3g cloaks… but that’s about it.
Did you see my post about my bronze drake? Mount envy!
I wanted a Netherwing Mount, but that was never going to happen. Run a 30 minute instance to get one? Hell yeah!
Every time I ran it, someone else would win it, and I just /cried
200 not cool?
I want more. Luckily Blizz is delivering via emblems. I know some people out there are pissed, but this isnt about you, it’s about me. I need to feed my envy
Greedy Goblin may think he is doing the community a favor by disclosing his secrets, but in reality he is just fueling greed…
I am happy with my relatively meager stack of gold, but I would never speak of the ever diminishing number. No, then the M&S would be after me.
Oh how I envy the people that can choose when they play and how long they play. Whether they have no other major real world obligations, are able to build a steady game filled schedule, or have an accepting (or better yet WoW playing) partner, I envy them.
I /cry a little when I log on and ask who is up for the daily, only to find everyone has already done it and one or two others. How I envy those that have dome Oculus, at least once and don’t have to sit in LFG for hours praying that 4 other miserable souls will go for a run.
- Done them all? Not me!
- In a raiding guild doing 3 nights a week? Not me!
- Got a secure spot and not praying for no-shows? Not me!
How I envy you!
I look at guild app requirements and envy those that can meet the minimum raiding requirements. I envy them knowing that by meeting those requirements there is a good shot at Ulduar, at EoE, at OS+3. Yes, I envy you!
Daily quests, egg hatching, mammoth cut scene chain quests. I envy you all. I look at my quest achievements and wonder how I will ever complete all the quests required. I’m not worried about finding the last quests, I’m worries about finding the time to complete any of them.
It’s my lot.
I know it’s my lot to only play casually, to only see portions of the content, and I know I have and will continue to see more than many other casual players.
I know I am lucky to have such a fantastic wife, to have the awesome experience of raising a great son. I wouldn’t give up either for all the achievements, quests, gear etc in the game.
But that doesn’t stop me being struck by the odd case of envy, and some days I’m not just struck, I’m king hit!
How about you?
Gnomer and Out!
