If you have ever been out of the game for any period of time you were most likely pulled up pretty short when you logged back in again.
More likely than not you fired up the PC and WoW on a whim with the desire to have 10 minutes in game to see if the spark was still there (or had returned).
Of course, rather than getting right into it, you had to sit through the patch downloads. If you were smart, you would have started the download just before you head to bed, but if you didn’t, you probably found yourself checking back in every 10 minutes to see that things had only progressed by 1%… then the installation starts…Finally the time has come to play… but your UI looks worse than your desk, you can’t remember which skills are attached to which keys, you heart sinks…
What do you do?
- Load up the character and just fumble about, maybe fixing one little thing each time you log in?
- Step back, and fix it from the ground up before frustrating yourself in game?
I know when I returned from India, I did a bit of both… I had* to play, but most play sessions were preceded with an hour of fixing… over a month or so.
Now one smart cookie is looking forward to his return to WoW after a long absence.
Previously the folk over at Three Druid Noob gave us blow by blow Multi-boxing tips, but right now, the whole “rebuild the UI” is happening in preparation for Razorbax’s return to WoW.
So if that sort of thing floats your boat, go and check out the regular installments, particularly if you are a Druid, but even if you aren’t it’s an interesting journey! There’s also been some very nice blog renovations over there as well… looking very sweet.
Gnomer and Out!
* If I wasn’t actually playing… my Wife would have taken me away from the PC… so I had to play a bit… tinkering with the UI for a night just wouldn’t have happened.
