It didn’t take long to get from Thunder Bluff to the Echo Isles – Ankona took advantage of a wyvern so she could think and plan before getting to her destination. She had information to confirm with the spirits – was Gromnor dead? Was he really in the northern part of the Eastern Kingdoms, somewhere […]

Every once in awhile I hit a wall.

Right now, I feel like I’ve hit a few – I can’t seem to bring myself to get started on STV with Annie Mae (she’s level 34, and I’d like to at least do part of it before heading to Theramore) – mostly because she’s almost level 35 and still… no horse.  I can’t seem to get moving on Angoleth at all, and leveling Anaelle is like pulling teeth, even though I’m really enjoying shadowpriesting.

I’m not sure if this is an early stage of burnout (possible), a symptom of all the other stuff going on IRL (also possible), or just because I need to spend more time working on character and less working on levels. (Either that, or I just need to log in and DO it, instead of puttering around doing other things…)

  1. That’s generally the area that I get stalled around as well, mid 30’s. I’ve noticed that working on leveling in Dustwallow held my attention much more so than STV on my more recent toons.

  2. Yea STV really hit me like a train. I think I actually quested a bit in Desolace, just to get away from STV before Dustwallow. Although i really like going to STV now I don’t have to quest there anymore…

  3. I know what you mean about feeling stalled. I’m still enjoying WoW, I still want to play… but every time I sit down to try and make myself level one of my plethora of alts, I fizzle out within half an hour. :/

  4. @Siha:

    That’s almost exactly what’s been happening to me – I really think a lot of it is that if I’m playign WoW I’m not doing (X) – and X is frequently packing the apartment, so I feel like I”m “wasting time” and end up getting distracted.

    Moving is a lot of work!

  5. It’s too easy to procrastinate by logging on to WoW; you then sit there in Dalaran thinking “I should really be doing laundry/packing/things”. I don’t think it’s burnout per se, it’s the creeping mountain of things to do ahead of the big RL events – they say that moving house is one of the five most stressful things that can happen to you in your life. Speaking as someone who’s done it 7 times across 5 countries in two continents, it doesn’t get any easier. And I don’t seem to get any better at it; I think I still have an unpacked box of shoes that dates back to 1994.

  6. @Belphzooka:

    Oh definitely – and part of the problem is that we’ve not closed yet, and we’ve got to live in this apt for another month while we remodel – so the packing is partially just so that I can be *doing* something, dammit, while we wait for all the paperwork to get done.
    It’s definitely stressful, and we’ve got all the remodeling to do (and all the people coming to help – which is a godsend… but also stressful because they’ll be sleeping on the pull-out in our living room in the apt, which has no second bedroom). But it’s exciting as well. I just hope I can do all this and keep up my end of the TRI bandwagon.

  7. I’ve always had trouble at those levels. Right now I have 2 alts that I want to play, a warlock and a shaman, and every time I try I wind up doing maybe 1 or 2 quests, then going to another toon. The idea of going to STV is enough right now to make me get on my DK or my 80 hunter instead.

    Good luck on the RL stuff going on, it sounds like a real handful. Hopefully all will work out well.

  8. I totally sympathize. I finally got around to leveling alts some more this weekend. Brugar (pali) is now 76 and Maccai (lock) is now 71. But I also spent a bunch of time just puttering around with Dal bumping off random achievements and fishing. Often when I log in I just don’t feel like going out and rehashing content I’ve already done at least once.

    A while back I was cycling through my six or seven alts checking mail and banks. Once I got back to Dalbarr someone in guild (Jest I think) commented that I sure have a lot of alts for someone who only plays one character. 🙂

  9. I absolutely HATE the 30s. I don’t really have a good reason… but I just do. I have been leveling my Shaman (I so want a healer and can’t stand playing Squishies =D) I have leveled through STV so many times that I just can’t do it anymore =( I had to have my fiance come and power me through STV just to get me back going again. With help from anyone 60+ it takes no time at all to power through and gets you motivated again. I know some people consider it cheating but it’s the only way I can make it through the 30s any more…
