Casual Thoughts from a Semi-Retired Philosopher

I play MMOs as an alternative to TV. Sometimes it even turns into quality time with the girlfriend. Most of the time it's a distraction from doing something productive or meaningful.

I am actually loving this game. It isn't the the PvP twitch-fest that I'd thought it'd be. Sure, been ganked a few times, but the ganker didn't even loot my stuff. Really, they were some righteous kills and I wasn't paying attention, chasing deer or rabbits or whatever.


My real frustration with the game is my ISP being unreliable and not allowing me to paly more.


Now, I come from the Themepark scene (what else is there?), so I admit that I miss having my hand held. But, there needs to be something for the newbie to do besides gather for cuprum.


It seems the "way" to spend one's newbie time is to gather for stats and curprum, so one can buy books so one can gather and skill up. It's real hard to skill up by just training, though it is possible. But, really, it's more productive to read about archery than to actually practice it? In some cases the only way to get the skill at all is to read the book...


Now, there's the mushroom guy. Why can't the fighter tutor have some exchange for one as well? Do such and such and get money or gear or what not. I know, I know, that's quest.


But how is that different from gathering mushrooms for cuprum? Or doing the deer or wood or rock runs? I would like to have an activity for those of us that want to be warriors, something other than watching my axe swing against a tree ad nausea...
