Easy like Sunday Morning.

faithnomoreIs WoW too easy? Larissa, and Kyr have their thoughts, I’m sure everyone has their own opinion. Well Clint Eastwood once said, “Opinions are like assholes, everybody has one.”

Well time to show you my asshole.

Difficulty is a subjective thing. What is easy for me, may not be easy for you.  You being a rocket science may think doing fractal math is easy peazy, where as my talents lie…elsewhere.  Can you chug a fifth of whiskey without taken a breath, or eat 3 football sized burritos in under 10 minutes, for me that’s easy, may not be for you.

I remember in High School, I knew about some subjects so much I could probably teach them. I never did homework, never even brought a book home. It was boring, to me it was easy. My grades were not good though because I never did the homework, or even though I usually got A’s and B’s on the tests I could have done better if I applied myself, challenged myself.

Let’s bring this to the WoW plane, Your pretty good at what you do, you faced alot in Ulduar, and the other Raids. Your sick of doing dailies, you have 8 alts already, your kind of sick of them. You got enough money to buy the Lich King’s Icecrown Castle, and evict him.

So what now? Where do we go from here?

You need to make your own challenges, sometimes it’s even the little things like that fricking mysterious egg, I want my green proto drake, or the dang Baron’s mount, or make gold, maybe the challenge is just getting enough guildies to go on a run, maybe helping them raise the bar on their playing.  Maybe recreate yourself and customize your toon, start a new toon on a completely different server, RP some, something out of the box, mix it up.

Is WoW easy? I don’t think so. It’s more accessible now. Gear you can get if you just put in the work through getting badges, and quests. I think it is somewhat easier than Vanilla WoW, but that does not make it easy in itself, because once we had BWL on farm I thought that was easy. To me WoW is alot of Grinding in general, and sometime that to me in itself is the challenge as well, because once I think I’m done with the grind, there is another one there for me to grind all over again. 

As a side note Mike Patton is awesome, I loved him in Faith No More, and I love all his projects, Mr. Bungle, and Mojo to name a few. He redid this song, “Easy like Sunday Morning” and it’s awesome. I wonder if he plays WoW?
