Happy New Year!
Blizzards 10 day trial worked on me and I'm playing World of Warcraft again now. I waited until after the holidays when I was less busy but that meant that all the sales on Mists of Pandaria are gone now. However, that's ok, because I found it extremely frustrating that I couldn't disenchant those Mists of Pandaria items and so this is the perfect opportunity to level my (Dis)Enchanter (who just happens to be a Mage) who was left at 65 since that's where she needed to be to disenchant Cataclysm gear.
Since this is pretty much all about reaching the magic level and I don't play a lot, I invested gold in some Heirloom items. Hopefully with their help, and despite my minimal play time, I'll get to 75 in a few weeks and by then I'll find a sale so I can go back to leveling in Mists.
One thing I've discovered that probably shouldn't be so surprising is that it is difficult to start a new MMO when your play time is limited. However, playing a game where you've already invested the time is much easier.
So, back to Outlands and Wrath briefly so I can see some new things and not be frustrated that I can't get sparkleys from them. It's odd the things that frustrate people, but I've learned to just accept them.
