So my MMO plans are currently up in the air. Sort of. We’ve been doing ESO group dungeons with our RL friends and have been levelling up rather slowly due to Dimzad’s work commitments. Given that a lot of the systems are still yet to be introduced (c’mon thieves guild!) and others are still being appraised and revamped (VR levels, provisioning) it’s also quite handy. However, our friends have decided to unsub from ESO and I think are returning to Lotro. On top of that, I’m not sure if Dimzad is going to return. He may, it is partly work and partly he’s wondering if he’s outgrown MMOs.
I still really like the game and want to play though. So I will… I’ve found a new nice guild although they seem to be mainly Ebonheart Pact faction based which means a main char switch for me plus the possible nightmare of having 2 mains (VR content twice??). Who do I do my achievements on? I can’t let go that easily of my Bosmer nightblade! Or I could accept the fact that I’m not going to be grouping with my boyfriend / friends and just treat it as a solo MMO.
I suppose there is the possibility of returning to Lotro. I do intend to solo through the U14 content. However, it is literally just the IP pulling me back. Lotro will not return to being my main MMO for two reasons: firstly, they are not developing any new group or raid content. Which completely takes away any point in investing in my character – she has nothing to strive for. Secondly, Dimzad will not play the new style Runekeeper – it doesn’t in any way resemble the class he used to play.
Well it is nearly the 6 weeks school holidays as well, so as playtime will be drastically reduced, I think I’ll just carry on as I am (noodling with alts, maybe some pvp with my sorc) and see where we are when the days are shorter and cooler 🙂
