A good friend of mine left the game. He had transferred servers last year. I was able to play with him occasionally on my hunter. Unfortunately I have not been on my hunter all that much the last month or so.
I was told how he left the game. He gave away all his gold. Which since he was someone I talked to about gold making, I am sure it was 60-80 thousand gold. He deleted every single one of his toons, all of his 80s and all alts. Then created level 1s of his main toons, thinking then they could not restore his original 80s.
Random note before I continue…
I have told you I cry at Hallmark commercials, random things, and at happy kitty stories… but I am not normally emotional… I have "moments". With that said… I am pregnant. I should spawn at the end of September. This totally messes with my attendance to Blizzcon 2010, and has increased my tendency to have "moments".
Husband and I were at the Costco food court and talking about Warcraft and stuff. I asked him what his WoW Exit Strategy would be. He had no idea what I was talking about.
I started telling him mine.
[Hydra] I would put on Hydra’s full fishing gear.
*Hydra’s eyes start to collect water*
[Hydra] I would go to a lake… Maybe by some hills, like in Grizzly Hills.
*Hydra fails at holding back tears*
[Husband] Are you okay? *with initial concern*
*Hydra starts blubbering and laughing. Trying to stop. But there IS NO STOPPING THE CRYING OVER LONELY HYDRA ON THE BANK OF A FINE FISHING STREAM ON A SUNNY BANK WITH BIRDS IN THE TREES AND A COOL BREEZE THROUGH HER HAIR!!!*
[Hydra] I don’t know which minion would be at her side. *tries to use laughter to stop the blubbering looking like an insane person*
[Husband] Umm. Okay. So you want to head to Best Buy now?
[Hydra] I cannot stop crying!! Make it stop. Who brought up this stupid topic anyway?
No one should worry that I am leaving WoW anytime soon.
I am such a believer of people should figure out how to make their own gold, I don’t know if I would give any of mine away. I may give my gold to my guilds. I cannot imagine giving it away to individuals.
We never got to Husbands ideas on this topic. But I have watched him place his characters in a bed at an inn. Every time he logs out it is like they are calling it a night. I am sure he may have some idea for his main toons.
What are yours if you leave Warcraft for a time? Delete everyone? A favorite spot? Make someone rich?
