Just an FYI - I'll be taking a bit of a break from D3. As most of the guys I regularly ran with can attest to, I had hardly been playing the last month or so, as I was busy gearing guys out. And I used to really enjoy that.
But the trouble is, I don't anymore. I guess the crux of it is, I used to be super excited when I'd see a friend request from someone requesting gearing help. Now, my reaction is quite different, and I'm interpreting that as a signal it's time to move on.
That, and, frankly, I'm growing short on time. I've got wedding prep (big day's in October!), I've been neglecting my musical side, and I've barely even ridden the RC51 this year - and that's an outright sin.
So, I've posted in the gearing thread that I'll be taking a break. I'll be completing the sets I've started, but that's it. I'd also like someone else to take over the big giveaway that Dinklefess had started a while ago. Overall, between the gearing, the playing, this giveaway, and our (aborted...) competition, I think I just got D3-burned-out.
I was kind of hoping Hardcore might be exciting - it is, don't get me wrong, but I'm usually quite interested in the gearing, and the economy, of a particular scene. I was a bit disappointed with the HC one - the dearth of items, the very steep prices...again, it's probably just a D3-itis kinda thing.
You might see me from time to time, but, I suspect, quite a bit less than before. To be clear, I'm not severing all ties and deleting my account or anything like that. I'm just planning on doing a LOT less D3 in the coming months.
Have a good one, guys!
