I have been doing a lot of game touring as of late as I looked for something to tie me over until the release of Warlords of Draenor. Even then between my tour dates I have been experimenting with other classes in WoW to decide what I was going to play (or boost to 90). I have had a lot of fun during this time and enjoyed everything I tried but none of them felt like the one. No new game or WoW class really captured my attention long enough for me to commit to it.
There is, however, one class that I have spent a lot of time playing, and that was my Shaman; it was my thing in Cataclysm and I truly loved it. Midway through Mists I felt like I wanted a bit of a change and so I left her abandoned on my old server and played a Holy Paladin with the Frostwolves for a bit.
Then a whole bunch of stuff happened IRL and I could no longer play WoW how I used to. Fast forward almost a year and things have started to settle down. I’ve abandoned yet another game *cough*WildStar*cough* and have found myself reminiscing on how much I enjoyed playing my Shaman, so I decided that I would roll a new one and start playing again.
The weirdest thing is that from the first few moments of my new Dwarf Shaman toon felt so incredibly natural and right. This really took me back a little bit as I had been searching for something different for a while thinking I didn’t want to be a shaman, but in essence it actually was. I still even have some major built up muscle memory and I keep going for old key bindings (Instant cast Ghostwolf on the Z key J ). This has made me really excited to play WoW again since I am back to playing a class I love. The funniest thing about this is that I knew I liked the Shaman all along and would enjoy its play style.
Have you ever gone through a similar feeling with a game or class? Let me know in the comments below.
