Its a funny old time at the moment. Dimzad had 3 weeks off work, we’ve been away on holiday, the weather is still gorgeous but it is now very definitely feeling rather autumnal. Our little boy is due to start school next week (first ever day!) and so I’m simultaneously waiting for him to start but at the same time trying to stretch out our last week as well and enjoy these last days before he starts properly growing up 😉
Its reflected virtually too, we’re just noodling about when we do log in, finishing deeds, going through some group content… there’s not a huge point in doing much until the expansion as the gear we have is good enough to level up in and we’ve completed the epic books etc etc. Roots of Fangorn for the jewellery upgrades is probably the only thing we’re ‘behind’ on but we’re probably going to be getting in there soon so… I’ve got my lore-master to 73 (though her virtues are shocking :P) and so she will be ready to go for Rohan too (not AS ready as Eldaeriel). Its very strange but I’m actually enjoying playing her (I don’t normally go for ‘magic’ or support classes). I like the fact that she has so many tools at her disposal, its a good variety. I’m enjoying thinking about different things in a fight and its a real change of mind-set from playing my hunter. Eldaeriel will remain my main but it might be nice to occasionally do something different.
The littlun has also discovered Minecraft and has been having great fun chopping things. He’s very quickly getting the hang of movement (though I still have to rescue him from very deep holes!), left clicking to chop, right clicking to build. We’re strictly limiting his play time but its lovely to see him having such fun exploring and finding out ‘what’s over there’. Anyway, as a surprise I built him a space rocket and he loves it! Its a creative world type so it was very quick to build (under an hour!) and I kept it simple as I was expecting it to be chopped a lot 😉
