Up to this point I've put sheer effort in to playing my Tankadin that could (Galo). I've leveled against the tide of conventional thought and wisdom. I proudly did it my way.
I've grounded many my cold steel blades blunt running 5 mans from Greens > Solid Blues > Solid Blues Uncrittable/Uncrushable and got ever single drop all being guildless.
Literally ran more Heroics for Badges of Justice that I can count or remember and replaced Blues with Epics. Not every piece but as best as once can with sheer effort and time.
I've grounded out almost every single Faction Rep that I desired to get done with sheer determination and effort..... alone.
Made more money making gold and farming all kind of stuff to make a killing with pocket money till it wasn't a problem for this Tankadin to pay for anything he needed to enhance his gear or repair money. Did it till it just wasn't fun to make anymore.
I've got every Epic Mount I ever wanted.
I've played and had fun playing WoW and my Paladin on my own terms.
I don't PvP, nor have I ever worn what's often called by many Welfare Epics!
Almost every piece of gear I've literally taken for the clutches of a dead Instance Boss or the Badges they had.
Galo don't have the best gear, but he earned it all.
I've Tried and geared Galo as best I could with my own effort and sheer determination and focus. As well as enchanting and geming my gear with the best of everything available.
I've made every single raid at my level I was scheduled for and made it on time every time from beginning to end. I've been accountable.
I've Pugged more than one can ask for and more than any person should.
I've Blogged about my efforts for almost exactly and entire year with consistency.
I've given the best effort that one can give of my time to my One dedicated character (Galo). I've given a 150% effort.
The hardest thing in all that time is to find others who gives as much effort and do it dedicatedly as I've given my own character.
I've found its not fun to look for Guilds nor is it fun to join and leave either. Time and effort is lost.
My Character may never progress beyond Karazhan and see SSC, TK (The Eye) Mount Hyjal, The Black Temple or let alone the new Sunwell. Its just about a guaranteed that I will never see Illidan.
Nothing in my accomplishments lacks sheer effort or the sheer will to try and over come the ability to advance oneself despite the odds of One Individual.
It takes a Team of like minded Individuals with the same goal to make genuine reasonable progress. That can be most elusive.
Some days its been fun, some days its been more fun that others. Some days you have ups and down with your character. I've had those.
I've been most proud of every single accomplishment that my character has undertaken and well as the sheer effort he has done every task.
I've accomplished more than I've ever wanted when I first started this game coming from playing SecondLife. Seen and done more than I thought I would do in the game. As well as played one main character dedicatedly for as long as I have played.
At this point I really don't care much to look for A or Any Other Guild Anymore. I know plenty of guilds on my Server that would be glad to have me. Many have asked but at this point I'm just not interested.
For this one Individual Player, Its Just Not Fun Anymore!
