I have some readers from France and Spain, just going to say hello courtesy of translation software. (update: HAHAHA oh my, that software is terrible! I’ll leave it in so the native speakers can laugh. Do a reverse translation if you’d like to see what a botched job it did.)
Ceci est un merci rapides et bonjour à mes lecteurs français. Je souhaite que je pourrais parler du français ! Ma boîte de femme.
Quiero saludar mis lectores españoles. Yo no he visitado España, pero querría a un día.
This is topical because I’ve been living in the UK for nearly two years now. We are moving back home to Australia in December for various reasons, so I had to work out what to do about raiding.
I love WoW, and I’ve played it since launch, so will keep playing when I get back. That was not a decision, it was about off-hours versus a reroll.
Interestingly, Honors guild is moving to Horde en-masse just for something new to do. My guild in the UK has a new thread on “which character will you take to L85 first?” and many people have already decided.
I expect a great deal of people and guilds are using Cataclysm as an opportunity for change. What’s surprised me is how early people have started their planning; within days after Blizzcon.
For me, I was not going to be in the right timezone to conveniently raid with my awesome guild, so I had to decide whether to create an off-hours chapter within it, or a new guild, or re-roll on an Oceanic realm. Frustrating, since Gravity and my alts have four epic flyers and about 15k in gold, so it’s a big loss. Thanks to Karatheya for his advice and my very supportive guildies.
In the end I decided to reroll, with a big reason being the gear-reset of Cataclysm (meaning my new Tauren Death Knight tank will not be behind in gear-level for that long) and the obvious issue of timezone for raiding.
There was no question for me about which class. DK tanking is my passion, having raided on many classes, and Tauren tanks just look awesome.
