Cata Night is here! I know I haven’t written for some days, ok, more like weeks, but not much have been going on. Been doing some pvp and some leveling alts. End of WotLK feels good, but also a bit sentimental. When it came out, I was standing in line for 2 hours, outside a small game store in Southern Sweden, completely frozen but so excited. Tonight it’s even more cold, but I’m inside my warm appartement, with the Expansion downloaded days ago, just waiting for midnight to log in.

I am happy with the way WotLK turned out. I joined a nice guild right after Ulduar was released, the same guild I am in now. We have killed all bosses both on 10 and 25 man, did most of the hard modes and acvievements. My goal was to kill LK on 25 man, and so we did, including 9 bosses on heroic mode, which I think is very acceptable. As for Cata, I don’t know what will happen, but I’m hoping to be a part of all end game raiding content, since this is what I enjoy the most of all in game.

I think it’s strange to think about how much my life has changed since the game store finally opened the doors right when the clock turned 12, and I shortly after stood there excited with my copy of  Wrath of the Lich King, eager to get home and start installing. Some of it for worse, most of it for better, but WoW has always been fun, my hobby, and a nice way to escape from real life.

I’m hoping, and believes, that Cata will do the same. See you there =)

I haven’t been sure where to pre-order Cataclysm yet, seems all the online stores promise they will make sure you’ll have it on the exact day, however  I am not convinced, not to mention that sometimes the postman likes to put my mail in the neighbours’ mailbox.

When Burning Crusade came out in,  I stood in line outside the store in Oslo. When Wrath came out, I did the same in Sweden.  Everyone who has been to Scandinavia wintertime knows standing still for more than two hours in a row is not a great idea, no matter how much hot coffee you have.

I was happy to see that this time, I can download the game and log in right after the server opens around midnight. Of course I expect major lag, server crashes and several d/c’s, but that’s all part of the fun. I guess only sad thing with downloading digital version is that you can’t buy the special edition. However, I bought that last year and most of the extra stuff I got from the box still hasn’t been used. The pet you get is nice, but not really worth 3 times the price in my opinion.
