I canceled my account with my Blackguard on it a week ago. I had been vacillating on this decision for a while. In large part it was because of the new city changes and me wanting to do them with my guild and a strong group to hit it for all it’s worth while the fresh coat of paint was still on and the shiny had yet to wear off. So, I bit the bullet, and let the subscription expire at the end of it’s month. It was a good idea. Now all I can think about of late is playing my blackguard.
It probably doesn’t help that we had a MAJOR drama explosion in the guild the other day, which is highly uncommon for us. Internally, we’re usually drama free. A few of us post on the various forums and poke at the enemy, or stir the pot a bit, but that’s all outside the guild. Well, without going into details, our guild leader dropped a drama-bomb on us, and two of our older members had an argument and one deguilded temporarily. On the upside, I don’t think the guild leader really meant to cause all this, and he really just needs to vent and take a little time off, and the (for the moment) ex-guildie is most likely just making a point to punctuate his side of the argument. Needless to say, the whole thing has been a freaking drama-fiasco, and not one that I wanted to have to be involved in. I like the internal workings of the guilds I belong to as relaxed as possible. Can’t complain too much, as this is the first real big fiasco of my membership.
Getting back to the subject though, all this is making me think a brief stint on my Blackguard might be a good idea again. I just got my warlord scenario weapon on my Knight, and he’s very nearly has the full sovereign set waiting for him (80-some royal crests, only chest and the cloak needed), and I’m more than half way through RR74. There are very few tick marks on his list of things to accomplish. Tyrant gear is not in my interest other than a bored-out-of-my-mind-and-I-have-nothing-else-to-do-for-three-hours. So yeah, my Blackguard might be getting resurrected this weekend and I’ll be playing with some other guildies who have been frolicking in the land of destruction. We’ve got a fair number of players that left old accounts on our server to come play order with us, so we could actually field a fair contingent of level 40s on the opposite side. I’ll see how it goes, and report back when I have more concrete answers and experience on the whole thing.
