Realization: I’m a Lazy WoW Player
Despite the fact that I play nearly every day, my knowledge of the game, my characters, and their abilities/potential isn’t expanding. I just kind of go along with the game until someone (i.e., Nick) says “Hey, have you gone to your trainer and received (insert something here)?” And I respond “Yeah.” And then he responds “WHY AREN’T YOU USING IT?”
And it’s because I don’t know what the description means. Or, if I do somehow figure that part out, I don’t understand how to use it correctly. And now that we have this Patch situation that has just changed…well, not everything but a lot of stuff, I’m doubly confused.
AND. Now I have this whole dual spec situation–which I’m super pumped about–I’m just not really sure how it all works.
Which means that I need to buckle down and do some research this weekend instead of just waiting until someone else explains it to me. The problem I run into there is that most people who blog about technical aspects of the game use the same terms that boggle my mind in-game…and so it’s this never-ending circle of confusion until I either Google or Urban Dictionary the word to try and find a definition or call Nick and ask.
So, my goal this weekend is to figure my own shit out. Hopefully by Monday I’ll know what my talent trees should look like for both of my specs (Holy and Ret), know my Ret rotation inside and out, and be able to play like a champ.
How are you guys adjusting to the Patch? Tell me about it in comments! (Comments make Bethie happy.)
