This post is in response to the shared topic on Blog Azeroth. The question is, how has WoW changed your life?
The biggest thing WoW has done for me is reveal who I really am. Here are things WoW has either revealed or confirmed about me.
- I am not one to lead. The idea of being a GM is appealing. However, I have learned through WoW that the job of being a GM is not for me. I don’t handle conflict well enough to mediate like a GM must.
- I excel at my given role. When Sovereign Legion was running Kara, our raid leader knew he didn’t have to worry about me. I knew my class well. I knew what gear I needed before I got there and what I was looking for while we were there. I knew what abilities to use in different situations (Ice Block against Terestian Illhoof’s chains) to help the group.
- I enjoy groups up to a certain point then not so much. I enjoyed Kara immensely. However, I hated when the guild grew into 25-man raids. That many people necessitated a much more formal approach. I understood but didn’t like it.
- I enjoy being/playing by myself. I’ve always known I am an introvert. WoW confirmed just how much. I enjoyed raiding and running dungeons with my friends but could have just as good a time by myself.
WoW has definitely given me a better understanding of who I am. I look forward to seeing how else my view of myself changes as I continue to play.
