Do I Burn Out Easily?
I believe I chose the wrong set of circumstances to go play Everquest 2 in. I was fine with my Shadowknight, because it was something I was used to and it felt good to play it. One day though, I decided I wanted to try something different, and so I rolled a Fury and set him in Freeport.
Now, I feel like I’m burnt out again on playing EQ2, just because of that Fury.
I think my biggest mistake there was playing against my original goal. I wanted to have fun, to play the way I wanted to while having goals I could be happy fulfilling. The thing is, I got it in my head that I could play the Fury and still maintain that sense of fun I had when playing the Shadowknight, but instead, I just feel torn. My Shadowknight has 1 platinum at level 20 from brokering. My Fury has A TON of materials for crafting tier 2 items to get my Shadowknight or Fury up to speed through Carpentry or Tailoring.
I don’t know if it’s leveling through Freeport that’s a pain, or if it’s the Fury itself that’s cramping my style, or a mix of the two, but I just didn’t feel like playing much today, and that kind of sucks, since I’m paying for the game.
I mean, there are two things I want to do for the Fury right now: make it hit level 20 (currently at level 19), so I can get the quest achievement and gold, and then make it hit level 23, which I’ve been told is when Furies get Thunderbolt, which makes them far more fun to play. As for my Shadowknight, I want to see if I can get him to become a tinker and, more importantly, I want to see if I can pick up that decorative claymore that I got from Qeynos and see if it has a Freeport equivalent. I don’t remember what that quest was called though.
I have to ask myself, finally, if I burn out on games too easily, or is something else keeping me from the fun. If any of you have any advice or answers, I’d definitely like to know what you think.
