Sick and Annoyed!
My first set of Elite Armor- Flame Forged.
Woke up at noon today feeling awful. It seems I have caught something but what it is, I'm not sure. It's not sinus infection or strep throat or even a cold but it's something. So aside from not being able to talk very well and having that itchy feeling in my throat that makes me want to cough all the time, I have a case of the sneezes. I could be an awesome strange sound effect artist today what with all the new and weird sounds that are coming out of me. Apparently a cat of mine is sick too because they left a mess in the dining room for me to clean up. Yuck!
Now for the annoyed part. I finally got to have some time to play Guild Wars with my Dad. We haven't been able to play together as much recently due to one thing or another. Anyway, the folks at Guild Wars added a ton of really awesome new stuff. You can buy a pack to make other characters you play mercenaries for another character. You can take up to 7 Heros in your party now, there is a new island with missions and quests and challenges, ect... And everyone and their dog, cat, ferret, and fish has been on line playing the last couple of days. I haven't been able to much of anything. We worked on my my hero build one night, play for like and hour or two another night and that's about it.
Here at home, I haven't been able to do much of anything because there are so many people on, that there is some serious lag. I'll be in the middle of running, or in a battle and everything just pauses on screen. When it gets moving again I'm either dead, suddenly in a new battle, in battle, or farther back than I was when everything paused. It was actually pretty bad last night but I was going to a Zaishen Vanquish quest. So I get it, get to where I needed to be, and start it. I was patient through the hour and half of game play filled with pauses and lag, got almost everything killed, and then boom, I died again and that little message saying that my "party was defeated, return to outpost" pops up on my screen. I was WTF?! I was almost done UGH!
So I don't know if I am going to try and do anything with Guild Wars today. I don't really want to be one of those people hanging out in outposts not playing just standing there creating an over abundance of traffic which makes it difficult for others who are serious about wanting to play, play. I guess it depends if I go to my parents house or not.
