Return of the Furious Five
Well, the five of us
had the time to get together and run again tonight, so I figured I'd take a moment to post again to make sure you knew I hadn't forgotten. :)
This time we ran
in about an hour, and found to our delight that we had time left over for a trip through the
– and it's a good thing we had the quest rewards from
Weaken the Ramparts
The Blood is Life
, or there would have been no loot at all (what good is
to a dedicated protection warrior?).
In the process of doing them, though, I got to thinking.

I have a secret. I don’t share it very often, because it’s the sort of thing that gets me odd looks. This is the kind of secret about which teenagers scream to their parents, “You just don’t understand!” before slamming the doors to their rooms. I am going to share this secret with you.
Are you ready? Do you promise not to laugh?
Do you at least promise to keep reading after you’re
Okay. Here goes.

The Furious Five: An Introduction
So in addition to the characters I normally play, I'm also part of something called a
. I don't know if this is already a widely used term, but if it isn't I'm inventing it now.
A group of characters who are specifically set aside for the purpose of playing with one another.
I belong to a five man static group that I've played with for months now. It's five players, most of which are IRL friends of mine, and we get together about once every two weeks and run an instance.
We've never levelled any other way since we were old enough to run
at level 13. We're now around level 60, so it's been a long trip--but with plenty of rest experience, it goes surprisingly smoothly. And it's

Friday is Casual Day
To an extent, I have always been a social person. When given the option, I prefer to be hanging out with friends as opposed to doing something alone. I discovered video games before I turned 10 years old during a social gathering where some friends of mine were playing Super Mario Brothers on the
. I was instantly enamored by the concept of electronic gaming and that fascination has carried on into my adult years. The social aspect of gaming has remained important, even to this day. Sure, I play a video game by myself every once in a while, but I have way more fun when I am competing with or against friends, or even when we're simply watching one another play a game.
World of Warcraft is no exception.
