I’d want my fight to be fairly complicated—no one wants to be a loot piñata. What would a boss be without any back story?

Shared Topic– 2009 WoW in Review

I was pretty determined not to read (or write) anything of this nature. However,  I know it’s been a while since I posted anything due to the holidays and travel, so I thought I would jump on the blogwagon (haha, see its a pun! Okay, no? Nevermind then.) and give you all an idea of how my first full year of playing WoW went.  This meme comes curtsy of Blog Azeroth’s shared topic forums, which always has interesting ideas for us bloggers.

“In the spirit of the annual RL year in review meme I have completed for the better part of this decade, I created one for Warcraft that I thought would be a good potential shared topic. Please tag 5 other folks to complete the meme and copy these instructions and the questions into your blog with your answers. Thanks all for your consideration!
