A Vision-wrapped attempt at a personal WoW revamp

I’m in a funny place with WoW at the moment. I want to play, in fact I even have a mini list in my head of things I want to do but when I log in I find myself randomly staring into space and doing nothing at all. Today for example I logged my Monk and went Timeless Isle. Once there, I rode around aimlessly for a bit, had a go at killing something and discovered I’d completely forgotten my keybinds. Smarting slightly from my narrow escape, I logged my Priest and attempted to do some archaeology. This to be fair, was marginally more successful but now I’m in the “interesting” position of making rares on almost every type¬†and they take too long for my current WoW attention span.

  • I want to level a Warlock to 90 but questing feels stale.
  • I want more achievement points
  • I want to become exalted with 60 reputations on Snowflower.
  • I want to make a Horde character now that our server has been merged and level it to 90 in preparation for the expansion.
  • I want to make more gold because I never enter expansions with enough

These are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to things I want to achieve when it comes WoW and yet I just can’t find the enthusiasm to push myself forward. In some ways I feel I’ve spoilt the current game for myself by dabbling away in the Beta.

So rather than sink into self pity, I decided that what I needed was transmogrification to cheer me up.

I’ve tried to pick items that require dungeon runs or quest chains that Snowflower hasn’t completed yet like the Chillwind chain in the Plaguelands and of course the Polychromatic Visionwrap since UBRS is being revamped in the expansion. The plan therefore is to attempt to farm these or similar items over the next fortnight and hope at the same time that this re-wakes my enjoyment in the game.

  1. I hope your plan to re-wakes your enjoyment woks. :)

  2. Collecting a new outfit sounds like a plan to me. It works for Cim but Cat’s not into fashion so luckily she’s on a pet leveling streak again.

    • It’s weird how what keeps you distracted on one character just doesn’t work on another isn’t it. At the moment I just can’t play my Worgen Druid at all because all she wants to do is kill people and that just doesn’t spark my interest at the moment.

  3. Ooh, pwetty! Love the shirt under the Polychromatic Visionwrap. Might have to borrow this mog from you, too ;)

    I hope you can get your WoW groove back and accomplish some of these things before Warlords comes.
