Tired of this one.

Okay, week and a half ago, I got a mail from blizz rep, saying they'd like to thank me for buying Starcraft2 early, and if I log into my blizz account, I can get a free FULL WoW account going.
So of course my bullsht detector goes off, I check message out, go to battlenet log in via my own external link I normally use when I need to mess with it, which hasn't been often, and yet..
There it is, an actual full account, go here.
I click on it, and it turns out that activated it.
OOPS. Crap... I would have rather waited.
I tell a friend of mine, someone who actually OFFERED to buy me the full game, AND expansions, AND time, just so we could do stuff online more often, and they say that's great, that I can use an installer, and DL the game that way.
Thank GOD we got a 3 meg line some months back. Had to sac cable TV for it, but it's been worth it.
So I proceed to DL the game for the next 7or 8 hours.
Get in, I get maybe... 4 classes to choose from per side. I figgure, screw it. I was gonna do night elf years back when I got sucked into Lineage2, may as well do it now.
So I start up... and ... I know people say the graphics are cartoony, and... compared to GW, they are, but... they also have a bit of the fantastic about them, everywhere.
The interface takes some serious getting used to, especially the need to R click stuff.
But I start getting used to it, and getting some advice.
Do you remember way back when, when you first started Guildwars? That intense feeling of newbieness, and awe and wonder at the game?
And everywhere you go is fantastic and interesting?
Remember THAT feeling?
I do, and I got it again for a good while.
I will admit, it only lasted around 4-5 days,
but the time spent running around, seeing new and exciting things, learning how the game operates, going places and discovering this that and the other thing...
popping down to the dock front, and finding a boat that took me to stormwind, and then dealing with the magesty of that city... all while in the middle of a valentines day event...
That newbie feeling... you don't get it much anymore, do you.
And it's so damn precious when it comes along again.
It's been a little over a week now, and my chara is up to level 36. And I've managed to get two ultra rare drops, this bird mini pet, that it turns out has the EXACT same drop rate as the MPB. Not as cute I don't think, but still... same 1:5k rate, and I get TWO of them in the same day.
And so I come back here, and look at GW, and have to ask, what do I have to look forward to?
Same old song and dance on different charas, and nick farming every week.
Other convincing factor, I have friends there, who I've known for years, but are more then willing to help me. They've given me large baggies and cash, where I would have been otherwise struggling for weeks.
GW... I have maybe... 1-2 people I Can talk to in here, the rest either hate me, or have moved on.
F*** I really miss Kahlyn.
That's something that I'm not able to readilly forgive the GM people for. I can understand taking away the accounts she managed for other people who bailed, but not giving them back their OWN accounts...
I'll probably farm for nick now and then when I feel arsed to do it, but beyond that, I think I'm done here for a while.
Just wanted to say so long, thanks for all the fish.
