Back from the dead… for now

Been back playing WoW for about a week now after activating a sub for a month. I'll likely give it a month or two and see how it goes checking out the MoP expansion. I'll likely just be playing casually as I already play multiple MMO's so WoW not likely to get all my attention like before in the old days. I just don't play like I did anymore in the old days playing WoW.

Its been about a year and a half to 2 years since have been away from WoW and coming back to WoW its like old times. But honestly I feel like a noob playing again. Just login in for the first time a few days ago I stared at my Paladin UI and I was dumb struck just looking at the UI trying to figure out what all those buttons all did. Even remembering some buttons were custom macro's and couldn't make sense of none of it. I actually had to read over many the buttons and spells to even remember what to use them for lol. Felt like a complete noob! I probably only have figured out how to use maybe 1/3 the buttons on my UI again so far. Slow going it is.

I remember when I used to play my Prot Paladin/Ret without much thinking, now I almost need a guide as well to just remember how to play either. The stuff you forget not having played in close to 2 years.

So over the last few days I just did a few of the new Hyjal and Firelands dailies to get used to going through the motion of playing my character. All those quests were all new to me and was also surprised how empty all the zones were. Over several days and haven't ever seen a single chat in any zone I was in doing dailies. Just different to what I used to remember how it sued to be.  Played with a few my other characters to get reacquainted again just relearning how to play them as well. So far not really in too much of a hurry with new patch changes ahead and everything changing just getting back.

There and Back Again… MoP

That was an awesome Cinematic!

Remind me of why a long time ago I originally fell in love with WoW, it was originally the Adventure and the Journey.

That was a very long time ago and time and taste has changed much since, so has the world changed much in his absence.

There and Back Again, can the old man who grew tired of the old War and Adventure who shed his armor and left it all behind for a quieter life of remote wilderness Fishing return to the life of the living?

Can a man who's broken Holy Spirit dead for so long, really find reason to resurrect again from the dead to adventure in Mystical Lands?
