Here comes 3.2 but what am I doing?

Well 3.2 came out today, much earlier than I was anticipating. So let me give you a little update on what’s going on in my world right now.

Really Good At This Game bit the bullet in terms of raiding. So once again I am lacking a solid raiding guild. So what I will not be doing is jumping head first into the Colleseum. Truth be told, I am not sure how my ability to raid is going to pan out.

I recently applied for a new job, one that I am quite excteid for and hoping I get. The only downside is that it would require me to work a couple evenings each week. Given that I always reserve my weekends for spending time with my family, it will make it difficult to actually raid.

The job is the Program Director for the Graphic Design program at a local business college and I am really hoping for it. So if I get it, this very well may be the start of a much more casual Drotara.

On the plus side, 3.2 looks like a fun patch from a general overview. While I am not sure about how much I am going to enjoy the trap changes, overall a lot of fun stuff has been put in the game. My baby Shaman I am leveling with my wife, some real life friends and brothers-in-law is pretty happy he is getting a mount now.

Sometime this week I will know if I get this new job. If I don’t (which would suck) I will be looking for a new home so I can keep raiding.

So that’s where I am at right now. I just figured I should let everyone know since it’s been a bit quiet around here. As for my gold challenge, I am sitting at 37,000 gold now. I blew 1600 of it on a Cenarion Hippogryph for no reason other than to show it to my niece the other night. I need to finish doing the Argent Tournament dailies just so I can buy the improved squire.

If I do start raiding again I will be sure to keep up with recording new videos. If I don’t, I am not sure what I am going to do with the site. It seemed most readers were interested in raid content and a more min/maxing stand point rather than a more casual approach to WoW. So I don’t know if people care to hear about my more casual not-raiding WoW activities.

I’ve been raiding since the first raid group on Deathwing ever stepped foot Onyxia’s Lair. I was in the first group to venture into Molten Core as we became perpetually stuck on trash due to it respawning behind behind us. The only content I have ever missed was the ability to kill Kil’jaeden at the appropriate level. I might have missed Algalon but I feel I have at least completed Ulduar. Although I am still 3 achievements and 1 dward from my 10-man drake.

If I don’t raid at the highest content level when it’s new, I think I would be OK wih that. Not saying I don’t want to, but eventually you do have to move on. We’ll see what happens.

Well that’s it for now. I am downloading the new patch at the moment. Thoughts, comments, opinions about the patch, etc. Post ‘em here.
