Daraia over at Ravenholdt Manor tagged me in a meme. I’m supposed to tag other bloggers that I know but it seems that they have all been tagged. I’m not one for this sort of thing, but for once in my life I will co-operate. My wife would be proud.

What did you do in the World of Warcraft in 2009 that you’d never done before?

I could say that I started this blog, but that isn’t in World of Warcraft as the question states. In 2009 I founded my own guild with a good in-game friend. They also made me GM. I ruled with the carrot/stick routine, minus the carrot.

What was your favorite new place that you visited?

I took a break for a few months when Wrath of the Lich King was released last November, so I didn’t see Northrend until this year. My favorite part? It’s a close call between Grizzly Hills and Howling Fjiord. I like the Grizzly Hills music better, so we can go with that.

What would you like to have in 2010 that you lacked in 2009?

Acknoledgement from Blizzard that this game has moved beyond being a great MMO to being purely a cash-cow based on the numbers, and that their new MMO will cater once again for old school gamers to begin the cycle anew.

What was your biggest achievement of the year?

Creating a new guild.

What was your biggest failure?

Letting that guild fold.

What did you get really, really, really excited about?

Northrend, like duh.

What do you wish you’d done less of?

Logging on aimlessly for no reason.

What was your favorite WoW blog or podcast?

I discovered the Greedy Goblin this year. I think he’s great because he’s so original and loves pushing the boundaries.

Tell us a valuable WoW lesson you learned in 2009.

The search for new daggers is futile. No wait; people with Kung-Fu pandas are to be avoided. Not bad, but in the end I’ll go with; If you post recount stats in guild chat while on a PUG run you are off my Christmas list.
