The Road Less Traveled

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference

Nine months ago barely heard of or even knew what World of Warcraft was. Took me eight months of dedication and persistence to reach level 70. A few days ago finally decided to go and pick up my Karazhan key Quest and its now completed. I now have the Master's Key and did it being guildless all in PuG's. It didn't take me that long to do the quest but in reality I probably already did the quest 6 times over already. Its was just deciding to do it. Some people have played this game since its Beta days and still not 70, but to each player his or her destiny in their own time.

Completed a smooth Black Morass (BM) run smacking around big boss Aeonus with some friends all of the same guild. They just love to have Galo tank for them on their instance runs. They've asked about Kara, they offered and though it was humbling to be asked I respectfully declined all offers! Every man must choose his or her destiny and at that appointed time we all choose a path to decide our faith. I have no regrets! It is not at this appointed time that I choose to seal my faith as a raider in Karazhan purging undead. Yes Galo has much better gear than half the Protec Paladins starting Karazhan. When the man is ready the Holy Blood Knight within will appear at its gates. Until then I'll have my fun grinding my Instance/Heroics and Faction Reps for my few remaining gear pieces.

We must all chose our destiny. You must do what you feel is right.

Congrats bro! Just be careful about how and with whom you enter Karazhan. If you are doing it for gear, are doing something that you enjoy doing (being forced to heal) or with people that you don't really enjoy being around, you will have a hard time enjoying the raid instance. It is definetly an amazing place and has so much beautiful design/texturing built into it that you can spend hours just running around screenshotting every inch of the instance. Good luck!

Thanks. However I've chosen to complete my gear/faction reps needs for now than deciding raid Karazhan at this time. I'm guildless I don't have any pressure or appointment with Kara.
