Right now I have one of these phases – wanting to log in, wanting to play, but not really finding any motivation to do anything. Should I get it together and finally level my main on the new server to 90? Should I create a new character with a class I always wanted to try but never really did, especially with the big changes made? A Monk or Shaman would be tempting! Or simply level some battle pets to level 25.. There’s so much to do, maybe too much since I can’t decide what and eventually just end up checking the auction house quickly and then logging off again, maybe to play another game. The Summer Steam Sale surely didn’t help with that..
But wait! There’s this profession that was somewhat annoying and exhausting when first introduced, but now after some changes it’s actually a lot of fun. Archaeology! At least it is for me, others might prefer to go fishing or something. Anyway.
Now, when I’m not really in the mood to do anything properly on WoW like questing or queueing for dungeons (the randoms are just too meh most of the time >_>) I take out my rough and dirty working clothes and go exploring:
And go to dig up some shiny crap. Sometimes it’s even shiny and useful, or at least fun! It also gives some good experience, so it’s a nice way to make a quiet and steady level or two every time there isn’t much motivation to actually do some serious levelling, without wasting too much on the way.
That’s what I’ve been doing in the past few days for a bit of levelling, looking for digsites here and there (the travelling around really is rather comfortable as a mage) and it got Teribeth from level 83 to almost 85 now without having to pay too much attention or putting effort into it. Plus the convenience of being able to watch a movie or go afk/do other things on the desktop every few minutes if I please to do so. 😀
