With some of us on vacation, or perhaps taking vacation around New Year, I thought I'd go ahead and get this ready. The start of the new year brings New Year's resolutions, so feel free to look forward to 2015 or look back as 2014 closes out.
WoW: I'm an altoholic. I've always played with a group of my own characters to rotate through. In Vanilla, that was because I was trying the different classes, races and professions. Later, I liked to keep several characters moving up at one time to keep things fresher and to give myself a bit of extra backup since I'm the guy who doesn't speak the primary language on my servers. In WoD, I find myself leveling blocks of characters because of garrisons and treasures. I don't mind that, it is just a bit of a change.
So, goals going into the beginning of 2015 consist mainly of getting everyone up to speed -- garrisons fairly functional, followers decently developed, gear up around 615 as characters ding level cap. This is my biggest lull of the year and I want to set things up so I don't feel like I'm falling behind when work cranks up, wedding plans take over, and I eventually have to adjust to being married.
RL: It looks like this time is actually going to work, despite having had to put things off for a year because of local traditions about death in the family. That will be the year's big project.
For this week, I'm excited that one of my daughters is back from studying in Germany and wants to meet to catch up. Second on the list, proving how quiet things are, is that I may buy large amounts of instant coffee and tuna. Hopefully, I'll make the hike without tearing my calf muscles again.
May the Year of the Sheep bring all of you good fortune and good health!
