Shared Topic: Lifechanging?

This week’s Blog Azeroth Shared Topic is suggested by Effraeti.

Very simply:

How has WoW changed your life?

Oh, you wonderful woman for suggesting such a topic, this could be a horrifically waffly post, which I love doing 🙂  There may even be pictures involved if I can find them 🙂

I have been trying to write a post for the last 3 days about how wow has changed my life and I am really struggling to put into words the changes. How can I describe the sense of achievement I get when we kill bosses, the feeling I am contributing to something with others, how do I explain to you the friendships I have built and am building every day with new people who are fun and interesting and worthwhile?

Is it even possible to put into words the comfort I get from throwing fireballs with my bare hands at huge ugly mobs when I am having a bad day, or the overwhelming pride when I kill someone in PVP before they kill me and recognise that I have actually improved my skills, or the enjoyment I get from reading and improving my character in game.

Wow has changed me in so many ways, and I don’t want to sound like a primary school teacher here, but it has taught me a lot about team work, co-operation, dealing with difficult personalities, enjoying my ability to find information, making friends – the list is endless.  I just wish it could change my temper, although it seems to be one of the few things that sets my temper off, well not the game but ignorant people 😀

I am still learning things every day and WoW is still changing my life, not just through the game but through the community.  Blogging, twitter, jogging etc have all shown me that there is a huge world out there of people to meet and things to do.  I hope WoW never stops changing my life because I could not honestly imagine waking up one day and finding it not there anymore.

    • yup, agreed, I also think blogging about our experiences help that as well, you develop a sense for the community and people..I often find myself wondering if the chatty people i meet in game are bloggers 🙂

  1. I really love this line: “Is it even possible to put into words the comfort I get from throwing fireballs with my bare hands at huge ugly mobs when I am having a bad day”. That so sums up an appeal to this game for me.

    Thanks for the shout out!

    • Always happy to link love 🙂 It helps us all find new bloggers to read 🙂

      Fireballs have always been the appeal for me 🙂
