“Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.”
Our Balancing Act
It is like those guys in Vaudeville who could spin a bunch of plates on sticks.
I’m finding that in my dotage that I can’t keep track of all of the stuff that I want to do. That’s a good thing. I don’t run spreadsheets or know how to make them. But I do have goals.
I think Warmode, which I don’t do, is a terrific improvement to the game. While I really hate those flying guards over Mechagon, I understand why they are there.
My point is, this current game is excellent if you want to play for one hour a day. Staying alert in Warmode and avoiding angry flyers could be a lot of fun. But, when you swing past an hour of play time, those exciting things become a burden.
Some of my single-character friends are now up in the 60s with their neck pieces and showing their strength. While you may be swayed by rep or resources; the big boy is the neck piece and chasing AP is the game. It is not Alt friendly!
The more you spread yourself out with Alts (and I’ll have five at 120 very soon), the less time you have to chase AP. BUT, the content can still be done. It is only when you compare yourself with your friend’s output do you see how teetered it has tottered.
So, my Druid has his neck at 58 and feels behind. My soon-to-be 120 has a neck at level 6 — haha, that first world quest will be fun.
On one end, you can have a terrific time playing a couple of hours a day on your main. Or you can just not give a damn about that stuff and play all over the place. I like playing all over the place!
