Fourteen years… That’s how long I’ve had my World of Warcraft account. One year on the UK servers, until my friends moved on with real life. Then I moved to the US servers. There were also a few breaks in between. Such as my 3 year break until a few months ago. In that whole time I’ve only tried to join a full on 4 times.
Once for Ice Crown (which I grind every week still trying to get Invincible’s Reins) when it was hard to do. But we didn’t have time to finish it. I never made it back to the second half.
Once for Black Temple a few years ago, but was quickly disbanded because elite gamers treat games like a job and hate under performers. (wish my employers would disband some of my coworkers for not working that hard)
Finally on August 16, 2023 I got to do the Timewalking version of Black Temple. On the first try I got a better than decent group of good people. Which in turn I got the achievement of I’ll Hold These For You Until You Get Out for the Warglaives of Azzinoth I dropped on my Demon Hunter years ago.
If you are unfamiliar of what those are, they are the weapons you see Illidan holding in the picture above.
Now if only I could drop that damned mount from ICC. It’s so boring running that thing 10 times a week on all my toons. (once per toon of course)
