The Ravens haven't raided since before Christmas (a fact that has prompted a number of our more hardcore members to head off and form their own raid-focussed guild and after the pre-Christmas Heroic fest (and the completion of a number of Achievements) there's been a major attack of apathy. I sidestepped this for a while by levelling my baby hunter (not so baby now at lvl72) and doing some lowbie stuff but now I'm back at work I'm finding myself lacking the motivation do do much online.
On the one hand it's like the traditional seasonal overindulgence - having gorged on the pre-Christmas additions to the game something of a break is called for - but there's also a measure of realization that we're once again in the endgame of a WOW expansion and the options (for Andro at least) are rather limited. She's about as geared as she'll be without raiding (a few additions left, but not stuff she's chasing madly) and she has minimal use for Emblems of Triumph. There's a couple of achievements left in reach, but PvP (BGs are a joke on Ruin) and Raiding form the bulk of those she has left to do, so the odds on completing them are slim - the Raven's are never going to be end-game raiders and I'm not going to move somewhere else.
Intstead I think it's going to be a quieter run up to Cataclysm that'll see Buliwyf (my Palatank) kitted out some more and my hunter and priest levelled to 80. I'll also finally get Eben, my Tauren Druid, to the level cap (he's languished around lvl40 since summer 2005!), but probably by bringing him Alliance-side so he can benefit from the resources of his Alliance cousins.
Assuming, that is, I don't get dragged into Star Trek online (seems unlikely) or one of the other MMO's out there (I am, in fact, contemplating dropping the LOTRO account I've had since Beta, though I may dip my toes into Eve once more). 2008's Wow challengers all proved to be damp squibs (Champions Online and Aion) and prior to that only Lotro and WAR held my interest fore more than a couple of weeks. Realistically, only Star Wars: Old Republic or Final Fantasy 14 have any chance of gaining a foothold (particularly as I still have Dragon Age to play), but you never know.
