A Casual Stroll

It's been quite a few days since I wrote a blog post, Dire ended up getting the flu over the weekend and I've been trying to avoid catching it. It's been a busy weekend and I've been just casually playing. I only managed to pop into RIFT beta for one day.

I decided to check out the guardian side, Saturday morning. I wanted to see the other side for myself. I like both sides of play, I think I prefer the defiant races a tad more. I wanted to catch up with some EQ2 friends but I just didn't have enough time to play much through this last beta. I suppose a part of me isn't wanting to play through it too much either.

I mostly played Everquest 2 this past weekend. Enjoying the little things like housing, crafting, events and just casually strolling around Norrath, enjoying myself more than I have in quite sometime. Just having fun at my own pace and embracing whatever it is I want to do at the moment. If any game really feels like home, after all these years, it's EQ2 [besides Everquest, of course]. While I didn't start when it first released [I went in the direction of WoW] I feel a real strong pull to it when I've been away for too long.

I love the ease of travel, the events that pop up so very often, like the festivals, it just feels like there is always something to look forward to. I'm blissfully enjoying being casual and things feel like an adventure, not something forced. I love the fact that no matter what level I am, I can always mentor down and help a friend, or perhaps go back and finish quests I missed.

Yesterday I was crafting in the guild hall and some members were admiring my cosmetic outfit which was very flattering and made me all shy at the same time. They were some people from CB server and it was nice to catch up with them. They offered much help, if I need anything, and it was quite refreshing. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy.

I'm still hanging in there with Everquest. I just didn't get much time to play this weekend. The progression server is getting closer and I'm considering playing there, at least at little, with a friend. We'll have to see how it all works out! If the free FV transfers go through soon, as I've heard they will this month, then I'll be pretty busy with all my characters again!

So, that's about all I've been up to, taking a nice long stroll through casual land and enjoying every moment of it. 

Have a great week all!


  1. I tried the Guardians, but I couldn't really get into it. I think I just like the art style for the Defiants a lot more, and Guardians also feel too righteous for me :)

  2. The guardians seemed cool and it was nice to see what the other side looked like but for some reason I prefer the defiant more so too. Yeah, they are a bit righteous hehe!
