I’ve got re-sucked into Adventure Quest recently. Haven’t played that in two years so there was SO much new stuff. I couldn’t remember what I had done and what I hadn’t done or anything so I decided it was easier to just create a new character and start over. :) Unfortunately my friend Vita isn’t around on messenger very often any more to play with me. It’s not multi-player but we would chat a lot while each playing about the things we wanted and the monsters we were fighting and most importantly the race to get to the next level first. :) Eventually we introduced so many abbreviations and inside jokes and things most of our messages appeared to be in code. :p

I too know that feeling of coming back to a game after a bunch of up dates. Same thing happened to me with Minecraft. Apparently I can now enchant things and have magic stuff. Also cats.

I’ve started playing LA Noire which really lends itself to tea time with the old school detective action. I like to sip while interviewing people and judging whether they’re lying or not. :)

That game is amazing! :) I found myself drinking a lot of strong black tea’s whilst playing that.

I’ve been playing a lot of Glitch lately. It’s a free and cute MMO that’s browser based and intended for people 14+ (due to all the innuendo ). It’s casual enough that you can easily sip away while you play.

If I wasn’t so busy with a 6mo, I’d be playing Mass Effect 3, Tropico 4, and Assassin’s Creed 3 :)

A friend sent me a scroll of resurrection for WoW so I’m going to be playing it a bit this week for the first time in almost a year! The only bummer is it doesn’t look like I can check out the 85-90 content on the free trial.

Sil select said

There are a bunch of changes heh. Any time you’re curious about them just holler. While its nice that they’ve made changes to accommodate the more casual player it means that there are a lot of dailies to be doing that makes it less fun if you’re trying to get gear for raiding. But the new zones, instances are getting back to being interesting again IMO. :)

Nik select said

[squee] Welcome home! :D

Claire said

I was really confused by the talents window when I opened it. And then my friends said “just pick anything” and I went what the…still have no idea how someone picks a spec in the new system since I was on my 85 characters!
I don’t have anywhere near enough time to raid anymore but I may stick around for a bit to check out the new content, since my friends and guildies seem to be enjoying it.

WoW and Tea? I’m in Heaven:)!

Helena said

Well I hope your having fun with WoW! Be sure to let us know what the new content is like :D (not that I’ll go back but I am curious)

Nik select said

It’s awesome. I’m especially enjoying battling and capturing pets! :D

Sil select said

haha nik. it’s electronic pokeman! :P I wish i had time to do more of that. it’s dailies and lfr for me until i get more time. such is the life of a “raider” lol

Nik select said

omg Sil, so addicted. I think I have forgotten how to play the rest of the game. Gotta get ’em all!

Claire said

I actually barely used my trial before it expired! I just had way too much homework to do that week. Rayn and I have been checking out the new content on Secret World the last few days.

Nik select said

I can use a scroll of resurrection on you, if you’d like. Just drop me a line if/when you’re ready.

Claire said

Last night my good friend (and long time guildie) Michael gifted me a copy of Mists of Pandaria, and another guildie gifted me game time. Do I have the coolest guild/friends ever or what? :) So it looks like I’ll be back to Pandaland after all!

Nik select said

[snoopydance] I know that depending on server/schedule we may not play together, but I’m always happy to hear of a return to WoW. =) Last night I played with my friend/guildie. She’s been playing a lot longer than I, something like 5-6 years compared to my 2. But she hadn’t gotten to try the new battle pet stuff yet, so I got to introduce her to that. And now she’s hooked like me. =P Anyway, welcome back!

Claire said

I’m on Feathermoon, known as Hammaryn or Fenniel (horde) if you’re ever in the neighborhood!

Nik select said

Are you planning to create a new panda? Maybe I will create a new panda on Feathermoon to quest with you…

Claire said

I might make a panda, especially once I hit winter break (late December to most of January for me). I’m pretty excited to check out the 85-90 content too! My guild on Feathermoon is the nicest group of folks and I’ve stayed friends with a lot of them even on hiatus from the game.

Nik select said

My server and guild are all I’ve ever known. It might be fun to branch out a bit. =)

Sil select said

If nothing else there’s always cross realm stuff too! I’m on Elune alliance side and I have a horder toon on some other toon in terms of active characters that i’m playing at the moment. My battle tag# is Sil#1548 If anyone wants to poke me :)

Claire said

I spent Vanilla and BC on Darkspear, a pvp server. Once Wotlk came out I got really bored with the game, took a break, and then decided to come back and check out an RP server (Feathermoon). Been there ever since! I’m not familiar with the battle tag thing (it’s been awhile), but I think I can be friended by adding [email protected] to your friends list.

I needed a new toon so I just rolled on Feathermoon- I’d love to join a guild if there’s room:) I sent you a RealID friend request- Hope you don’t mind! Toon name is ImaPanda lol

Helena said

@Reasoned_Melody I used your gmail address to add you to my steepster circle on G+ :D

Nik select said

Okay, I’m creating a new panda on Feathermoon so I can join in the fun with my Steepster buddies. =)

Claire said

Yay new friends! I’m about to work on a philosophy paper but may be on for a bit later tonight. My main guild, Noxilite, has some rules about being a roleplay character, but if you just want a guild to hang out in I think I can still invite to Supercow, which I have some alts parked in. :) If you are interested in RP, my guild’s website is noxilite.org.

I am currently in a business accelerator building my online tea business, Tealet (http://www.tealet.com/) and I am learning a lot about the development of online games. I’m finding much similarity between online gaming and the tea experience. In this Tching article I break down the three personalities of online gamers and apply them to tea appreciation, check it out: http://www.tching.com/2012/11/the-motivations-of-the-new-tea-lover/
