A Long Hiatus…
Due to an extremely busy schedule of work, filmmaking, and a wedding (yes, mine), I haven’t touched World of Warcraft in three weeks. I always knew I’d be taking time off, but not for this long. And sure enough, the itch has come back, and I’m ready to jump back in.
However, before I run back to my guild and realm, I’m extremely nervous about being “behind”. Everyone knows that the virtual world moves much faster, and my guildmates are most probably another raid dungeon ahead of me. We had 5 full-time mages running raids, all attempting to gear up. I was already #3 in the pecking order. Where am I now? What if they recruited more mages? Hell, some guilds would kick someone out for three weeks of inactivity.
With only one piece of epic loot, it’s a very good possibility that i’ve cost myself more than just three weeks of raids. Has anyone ever had a situation like this? What was your solution? My biggest fear is that I have lost my spot in the guild entirely, or at least as a member of the “Top 40”. When this happens, am I pretty much looking at a new guild, or hours and hours of grinding in the hopes of earning my place back?
Advice is appreciated.
