Destiny... my Destiny?

It's been a bit quiet on my end again. I've been consumed by games, finishing my Master's Thesis and trying to find a job.
The job part isn't really coming along well yet tho...

As it stands now a lot of things have happened. My Final Fantasy raid group has fallen apart. There was too much tension and we were carrying one person way too hard. Our main tank quit and that was it for me. I haven't touched the game in weeks. I feel like I've burned out on it completely.


I finished my legendary cloak on World of Warcraft just in time. I will probably main Shadow Priest in Warlords of Draenor and I'm happy with my decision. My old guild on Dragonblight is getting back to raiding again and I want to be a part of it.


I decided to roll with a Wizard on Diablo 3 for the season. I started out on a Barbarian, but for some reason I just get really annoyed with dieing a lot as melee and as Wizard I can dash in and out while surviving most, if not all, monsters. I dinged Paragon level 200 and am having a blast.

I've also purchased Destiny and leveled to level 20 on a Warlock. I'm the Voidwalker subclass and absolutely adore playing it. I also finally could say no to levelling a new character simultaneously with a friend. I want to focus on one character per game now and not get sidetracked by new characters/jobs/classes all the time. I feel like I'm too indecisive as a person in general. I get sidetracked by people and things and don't really focus on one thing at a time.
"But Sandrian, you're playing four games at once!" I know, I know. But I prefer playing four games at once where I advance one character than playing one game where I play four characters and not really get anything done. Which is what happened throughout most of my gaming career.

Tied to this comes the decision to blog more regularly. I want to have atleast 2 blog posts a week, one on Friday as set day and one random, whenever I feel like writing. This also means that the variety of topics for my blog will be bigger. I will sometimes talk about personal stuff instead of gaming, but I think that will help me grow as a person. And no I'm not really ashamed about who reads my blog, this is my little space where I can get stuff of my chest.

Expect a next post coming in soonish where I tell a bit more about Destiny and why I've chosen to drop Wildstar as a game for now.

  1. So many things I can relate to!

    /stands I... am an altoholic. I want to do everything, be everything, explore all the different facets. I WANT to stick with one thing and love it. I rarely manage that because SOMETHING is annoying. Or I just need a break. I'm pushing myself to stick with Hunter in Destiny, even though it really feels like Titan and Warlock are just more useful generically. I'm 23 and I feel like I should just keep going. Got me first legendary btw!! Very excited. Hopefully we'll be awake at the same time eventually...

    It's funny you should mention FFXIV falling apart. I keep feeling on the edge of going back and trying this "community" thing again. You also mentioned leveling from the beginning with someone. I aaalllways want that, and I haven't been able to do that in years, outside Secret of Mana. Which, ya know, is cheating. Gah.

    Looking forward to more regular posts :D

    1. Yeah I'm very bad with sticking to one thing aswell. You do not want to know how many max level characters I had on WoW about 6 months after expansion release... My warlock on Destiny is level 24 though and doing great!

      As for FFXIV. I still love the game, I love the art and the playstyle, but being forced to play with people you would never hang out with IRL and being stuck on content for months has kind of given a sour taste for me.
