CoH Refugees in Azeroth
Just seeing who (if anyone) is still playing WoW these days, or if we've all gotten grown-up finally, or if we're doing what I'm trying to do, and balance various MMOs (tho lately, I've been leaning more towards WoW).
I've been playing CoH, but I'll be heading back to WoW with Burning Crusade for a while. Possibly sooner than Burning Crusade if my post this morning on city_of_heroes
is indicative of what's going on behind the scenes at CoX.
I'm all over WoW as my Druid on Aggramar. Just participated in my first downing of Ragnaros on Monday as well. I've been playing it a lot more than CoX lately, because my new PC has a shitty ATI card that CoX apparently despises, but looks fantastic in both games and is completely fine with WoW. If I move in CoX I get screen scrambles for a split second every few minutes.
But, yeah, I've been playing WoW a bit obsessively of late.
... You're on Aggramar? !!!
How did I not realize this? o.O;;
I may never have mentioned it...
Are you on Aggramar? O_o
My dr00d, my 32 rogue, my 22 shadow priest, my 21 mage are all there.
I've got a couple of alts on A-N, but I don't play there terribly much becuase I'm too obsessed with playing with my dr00d and getting More Cool Stuff(tm) for her. :)
Sweet! I've got random toons (like, 3) on other servers, but mostly from times when Aggy was down. Obviously the toon in the pic (Letalli) is my main on there. I'm at 4/8 on my Cenarion set, and I'm still trying to get people together for Scholo at Strat and to finally see more of BRD then Jailbreak (I failed that friggin thing 3 times before we wised up and cleared the armory room before letting Whiny McDragonfoodpants out of his cell).

*snickers like a snickery thing*
Edrie (my main) needs to do more Scholo runs than I can shake a stick at. Between quests from around LHC and the stupid "run through Scholo 3 times because we know how much you love undead and how badly you want this recepie" quests to get the thing to see the guy who'll see me the damn Major Mana Potion recepie... I've yet to actually do much in Strat.
I've got some LBRS runs I want to do. I want to see more of BRD (have emperor quest there). Need to hit UBRS more because *want* Ferocious Bite rank 5 book that drops from the Beast.
And, hmm, all of this between raids on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays and wanting to hit Exalted with Stormpike and... and... and... >.>
I've got 4/8 Cenarion and... eh. Don't really care that much about it. I've got my Stormrage helm (bloody stupid moose ears) with ZG enchant now. And I've been crying (practically) to get feral gear and fighting with rogues for it. :(
The expansion has craftable leather that has Feral and Hybrid stats up the yin yang that completely toasts the stats on my Cenarion and on the current Purple PVP set. And they're GREENS!
And I am a total LW junkie, so of course I will have them. Oh yes. I will have them. ¬_¬
I pretty much just run MC on Sunday/Monday. It's painful, though, cuz I'm on dialup during the sunday part, and we're really close to one-nighting the entire thing, which makes me sad, cuz I'll prolly stop running it at that point until Job#2
Tonight is Troll killing in EPL for pre-quest goodness before an LBRS run on Friday. And I need to go annhialate DM a few dozen times because there is some NICE feral gear there. And since my guild knows I'm the feralest feral that ever did sit on a gnome, I get my pick of it. Unless I opt to be nice to a Rogue who happens to be with us. :-p
There's something to be said for being the guilds only real level 60 tank... ^_^
I've been leveling up my Paladin on Cenarion Circle, mostly. Btw, Mining makes me cry.
Have pre-ordered BC CE.
Popped back into CoH because my SG on Protector went into an AV fight without a 'real' tank and got wtfpwnt by Shadowhunter and his puppies. My tank's about 3 levels behind the rest of them, but it's not really a big deal. I can catch up, or I can not catch up and still tank for them with an SK.
My druid is raiding MC, and the guild is starting to do BWL (downed Razorgore for the first time last week and got wtfpwnt twice by Vael).
I logged onto WoW this morning to do a quick mail-check and auction scan and was delighted by the little bits of Hallow's End stuff that I saw. You can bob for apples and trick-or-treat with the innkeepers. I'm not sure what else is out there for that, but so far, no surprise villains X levels higher than you are trying to eat your head. I heard that the CoH halloween event has also started--one of my SGmates pwnt a jackolantern dude in Steel--and it made me cringe remembering the Winter holiday event last year with the snowmen multiple levels higher than you that would own you while you were trying to get things appropriate to your level (while higher levels ninja'd presents from lowbie zones and left the spawns behind).
I'm also finding that my framerate in CoH sucks giant turkey butt through a straw sideways. I'm not sure what's changed since I stopped playing regularly, but the minute I'm teamed with my invul/fire tank, it becomes slideshow city and... that's really annoying.
I'm torn. I'm vaguely trying to juggle time between WoW and CoH, but I'm still spending a lot more time in WoW...
When Burning Crusade comes out I'll probably go back to WoW. There are so many things that I miss about it, but right now I don't have a pc that'll play it. :(
Either I'll get a new pc or get my broken one fixed and come back. Until then, I'm stuck with CoX. (Not that I don't like CoX, because I do, but until I8 hits, I'm a bit bored.)

haven't looked back to CoX once.
I've got a 60 lock, a 53 priest, a 33 hunter, and a 32 rogue on Khaz Modan.
loving the game.
I've actually quit WoW. Whenever the new CoH issue comes out, I might reactivate my account.
